The Mundane Task becomes a Spiritual Experience

I have often heard people say "I have no time for rituals, or to meditate, or to pray!" I find that amusing. I live on and maintain approximately 15 acres. I am a full time clergy person, I am an author and teacher, the list goes on and on. Yet, I find time for things such as this every day. How? Let me give an example.

 Mowing the lawn is one of my favorite activities. For various reasons. I also use mowing the lawn as an opportunity to actively meditate, speak with my Deities, and yes, do ritual. I vary my mowing patterns, mowing deosil (clockwise) I will send out requests to draw something to my life. Mowing widdershins (counter clockwise) I use the opportunity to banish an obstacle from my life. The possibilities are endless. I speak with the Sidhe (faeries) that inhabit my property, talk to the birds and flowers, all the nature spirits. I speak with the elements, and praise and thank them. I enjoy the time, choosing to live in the moment.

Give some thought to your own daily routine. Morning coffee or tea can become a wonderful time for prayer or meditation. Showering can become a spiritual cleansing process as well as a physical one.

Anything and everything can become a spiritual experience, it all depends on one's perspective.

Blessed Be!


  1. it's crazy how many people don't realize how easy it is to use mundane things to meditate and get in touch with themselves/deities. I love turning off the radio and chatting to my goddess or simply listening on my way home from work.

  2. it is simple knowledge for us, many, who do not have born talent cannot ever understand this, many who have potential refuse to actualize and develop it. I love working this way, in every day tasks. Some believe all must be "high" ritual. That is their choice, but as Scott Cunningham said, very few people like that do real "workings" on a regular basis. What people don't understand is it does not have to be complicated. I work if I have need to, where ever and when ever. Ritual is not for deities, it is for us, they do not require it, we do, for "mood" setting. I could go on and on about this. I really appreciate your insight.
