RealPagan- Paganism for the Real World


Finding my Slavic/Medeteranian roots and Mermaid Wisdom

First of all, this is sorta a little book review that i want to share of a book that pleasantly surprised me.

The book in question is called Mermaid Wisdom. At first glance it just appears be a typical book about mermaids, such as the likes of the kind you get about Dragons and Faeries and other such mythical creatures containing short stories and fantastical illustrations.

While this book does contain stories and wonderful illustrations, it also goes in depth analyzing these stories, and how we can use them to learn from about various aspects of our own life and welfare, such as recognizing and appreciating our own natural beauty just the way we are, finding balance in aspects of your life, confident with ourselves, learning to love ourselves as well as others, unlocking your inner creativity and also learning to get in touch with your inner self.

As well as these stories, there are also simple exercises to try if you wish, meditations and (very) simple rituals (Bearing in mind this is a non religious specific book).


This book is very good i think for what it is, for beginners, children, adults, and the curious alike.

Well worth a look into


Also, i have been wanting to discover a little more into my Polish and Maltese heritage, however sources are very limited, i feel a little at a loss. if anyone could point me into a helpful direction, it would be very much appreciated :)

Sorry about the derailing of your post there Dog... someone has an agenda...


I am a HUGE supporter of myth and I honor the Fey, so Real Pagan has no problem with either.  You can see for yourself want actually happened in the group I mentioned.


As for Druidry, no problem.  I have a good deal of info started in my group.  It's featured right now.  Tuatha de Danann Druids. And I have a right up in the Trad and Training section of the Forum on Modern Druidry.  It can be quite broad because it covers all "Celtic" regions and is quite eclectic in a way.  If you have any specific questions feel free to post them on the group or send them to me directly.  :)

Hey Dog :)  Not at *all* :)


In fact, there's another post talking about myths and legends etc and a quote in there is "Myths are things that never happened but always are." --Sallustius, 4th cent. A.D.

Stonewolf- well ok. alot of misunderstandings can happen through text and it's not always clear. But noone needed to explain anything to me, it's none of my business after all ;) Thank you for your good intentions anyway.

it is very good for all it's simplicity! and an extremely light read :) i'll certainly be trying out some of the activities myself when i get the time. in a sort of relevance it has also inspired me in looking into my heritage, for the Warsaw coat of arms has a mermaid on it, and am thinking of writing my own analysis of the myth in relevance to myself :)


Strata- Ah right! i was worried for a moment, hoping that RealPagan wasn't COMPLETELY against myth and imagination!  Being of an artistic persuasion, imagination is important to me. ^^;


Hey Strata, you might find this a bit of an odd question out of the blue, but I was rather hoping to ask you sometime about Druidry? and what it entails? I've done a little research but from what i gather it can be quite broad.

For Pete's sake....take it somewhere else!

Actually, Dog.  That never happened, so do not get concerned.  Stonewolf claimed to have done research on Faerie otherkin, people who had Faerie souls. When we was questioned about his research, for example, how he proved that he was in fact testing people who were faerie otherkin, he got beligerent and had to be removed from the group.  He was given several warnings and asked to take a step back.  He refused, so I removed him from the group after discussing it with the group owner.  It is all still in the Lifting of the Veil group for you to see if you would like.  That group is designed FOR talking about Faeries.  The problem was Stonewolf's attitude, NOT discussing Faeries.

Dog..I actually checked out that book on Amazon and it had decent reviews...seemed like a fun read. I think I would take from it exactly what you did:)) I heard the illustrations are beautiful:)
