  • I meditate and chant daily, whenever I take from nature, I give thanks. I live by the rule of 3, but mostly a big believer in Karma, though I try not to let it be my only reason for doing good. I smudge the house almost daily as well as burn incense. I listen to Pagan music and make hand made offerings to my Gods. My Gods do not require monetary offerings, but prefer nature made ones.

  • I think being Pagan anything you do each day to incorporate nature into your life is special. We do burn incense every day and smudge usually weekly. We arenot ritualistic though and our beliefs are about who we are and how we live our lives not so much specific daily rituals.

  • In the food I eat and the clothes I wear, I try to incorporate the Elements and the Lady and Lord.
    Monday = Earth, Tuesday = Air, Wednesday = Fire, Thursday = Water, Friday = Spirit, Saturday = Lady, Sunday = Lord (I know, Monday, MOONday should be for the Lady as SUNday is for the Solar God...but that would push the rest of the week back a makes sense to me.)

    For instance, today is Wednesday, Wednesday is Fire, so we are wearing red and will be having Tex-Mex for supper tonight.

  • Also in the chores I do:
    Monday = Earth, sweep and mop the floors, water the plants
    Tuesday = Air, dust and vacuum
    Wednesday = Fire, clean the kitchen (kitchen being the modern day Hearth)
    Thursday = Water, scrub the bathroom
    Friday = Spirit, whatever didn't get done earlier in the week...
    Saturday = Lady, other projects
    Sunday = Lord, laundry

  • I chant and pray every day. Morning and evening devotionals. Every day I spritz sage water all over the house and once a month I do a full smoking sage stick. I give back to nature and recycle and reuse.  I believe in Karma but I do not do kind acts out of fear of retribution of Karma.  I do kind deeds because of my love for my fellow Earth kind.   MamaK88 I like your chore list and I may incorporate them in our daily lives. Wonderful.

  • Mostly I use the music found on my homepage and I meditate with Pagan Prayer beads. It all depends on what feels right for you.
