Morning and evening ritual

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 🙂

    One of my favorite small rituals is when I make tea. I have an electric kettle that take a while, so I usually sit in my kitchen and hold the herbs or the tea bag to bless them with a particular intent.

    It’s great that you take a little time every day to spend with the God and Goddess!

    I love this idea! I’m not sure what I do; I’ll have to think about it. Thanks for bringing this concept to my attention.

      I started using day and night cream somewhere before my wedding, so approximately half a year ago, and I only noticed my consistent use of ‘tribal’ stripes about two weeks ago. But it’s something I imagine many women unconsciously do 🙂
