Lately, I’ve had limited time for my religious practice. Work at school is killing, but it’s a schedule I have to get used to for the future.
Wanting to pay respect to the God and Goddess, I had to find something to do, something small. Before I go to school, I eat, brush my hair, brush my teeth and clean my face and put on day cream. In the evening, I do the same. And therein lies my opportunity.
Recently, I’ve noticed that I put on the cream in the same fashion every time. Stripes on my cheeks, a stripe running over my forehead to my nose, a bit on my chin and a dot on my nose. When I look in the mirror, I get a bit of a tribal feeling. And I love that feeling!
Very deliberately I now watch myself in the mirror when I put on the face cream and I leave it like that for a moment before massaging it into my skin. My small moment with my deities, every morning and night.
It works for me. But I’m curious about what small rituals you do too! So if you’d like, please share 🙂
