Household Rituals

This is the first in a series of simple household rituals pagans can perform to enhance a feeling of the sacred in their homes.


Candles at Dusk:
This ritual comes from India.

When the Sun goes down, light some candles in your home and turn off the electric lights.

Candlelight promotes alpha rhythms in the brain (as does Moonlight).

Have a quiet ten or fifteen minutes in the soft candlelight.

You can also burn some incense (make sure a window is open so you don’t set off your smoke alarm!).
