The holidays are fast approaching. Soon will begin the flurry of family gatherings, grove and coven events, office parties, and potentially visits to churches, temples, or other religious establishments of importance to your family.
Take an opportunity today, before it all sets in, to center yourself in order to put your best foot forward heading into the holiday season. One way to do this comes from druidic traditions, by connecting to land, sky, and sea with three breaths. You can do this anywhere and anytime, so find a quiet spot that works for you. (Fresh outdoor air is a bonus.)
Begin by focusing on the earth below you, and take a deep, slow breath with the earth. Then, focusing on the sky above you, take another deep, slow breath. Then take a third and final deep, slow breath while focusing on the sea that surrounds and connects us.
