This is the first of a series of posts created for some of the Priests and Priestesses with whom I work in Blue Star, FoV and the Gardnerian tribes I have befriended. I want them to have a place to come for my answers to some of the questions they’ve asked me over the last few months. I’m also hoping that sharing the answers here will make it easier for them, since I’m not always around, and at the same time invite other Blue Star Initiates and tribesmen to share their own thoughts and answers to these questions.
I also hope these posts can answer the queries of several Blue Star students while explaining something about Blue Star to my Gardnerian friends. Please remember that I don’t have anything like an exhaustive or definitive set of answers. I just have my answers.
Please also note that I cannot claim that my approach is the original, best, true or right way to do Blue Star. In many ways, it is very different from that of others in my tribe whom I love and respect. Know that I value the experiences, preferences and approaches of other Blue Star Initiates, including the teachings of our elders, and I have no interest in telling anyone what they should or shouldn’t do.
Finally, this language may not work for you. If it doesn’t, feel free to change and adapt it to your own needs and the language of your tribe. If “Priest” or “Priestess” doesn’t work for you, perhaps “Initiate” or “Guide” will. If that doesn’t work, I trust you to find your own words.
