1. How do you pray in Hellenic Polytheism?
2. How do you meditate in Hellenic Polytheism?
3. Is there any way to create an oracle?
4. Is it disrespectful to pour alcohol on the lavendar and grain you're sacrificing to Athena because the damn sacrifice isn't burning?
5. Every list needs a five.
6. Are there any spells, and what kinds are there?
7. How do you communicate with the Gods?
8. My altar is (because of my lack of religious supplies) a picture of Athena with a small bowl in front of it where I burn the sacrifice. What else should I add to win the Goddess's favor?
9. Can I ever physically meet the Gods and Goddesses?
10. Yay, the second five.
11. Please tell me about your own religious experiences, okay?
12. Is there a way to control spirits to do your bidding? (again, I'm BRAND NEW to this religion)
13. How do you burn lavendar without alcohol on it?! It's driving me crazy!
14. Is it natural for someone to ask all these questions?


Gosh, I just can't be bothered to burn sacrifices. It's not practical for me. I leave them on the altar for an arbitrary time, and then out they go as a feast for the woodland creatures.

I guess I'm not exactly Captain Recon...probably in a number of ways.

I also wouldn't expect to meet any of the Deathless Ones in person. It's always possible, though. My money says that a God or Goddess will appear to you as an unknown stranger...so be polite to strangers unless they give you cause to do otherwise.

Google Sannion's Sanctuary, or Hellenismos, and you'll probably find lots of good info.

Too bad the Gods can't save me from my own stupidity.
