When I have guests over, I do the usual and clean the apartment. I take care of the physical tidiness, but I also do a little extra for the spiritual side of things. Although having company resulted in a stressful Tuesday full of cleaning, fatigue, and the self-loathing that resulted in this post, I made a point to do a little magic today.
Quite simply, I made an offering. I chose a blend of incense known for it's purifying properties and offered it to Brighid. She is my patroness but also a Goddess of the hearth and home. I prayed to her that the negativity in our home be purified, and that it - and we - be as hospitable as possible to our guests. A little thing like that can go a long way. Amidst the hustle and bustle, I took a moment to stop and connect. I feel that Brighid responded.
It is definitely the little things.
