In book eleven of Apuleius's Metamorphoses, the hero, Lucius, is saved due to the divine intervention of Isis and then he becomes a priest of Her cult.

Since it is a very personal prayer, use it if you are so closely connected to the Goddess and after it, place your offerings on your altar.

The problem is that I paid a lot of money (46 euros) to buy the two volumes translated in Hellenic/Greek and I had to read them eventually. The work that has been done by the Greek masonic publishing house in this book is awful. At the beginning of 2022, I started this task and in this article, I am sharing with you the main points of that work along with some of my thoughts.
In Orion Foxwood's book, The Flame In The Cauldron we see the term "witch blood". It is when a person realizes that he has the urge to study and practice witchcraft, as he was a witch in a previous life. It will be awakened during training into a magical tradition. But, how do we get there?
It amazes me how so many traditions follow these ancient protocols and roles,
