|Everyone’s spirituality is unique to each person. Everyone will worship their
God(s) and Goddess(es) differently. It is the responsibility of each person to
choose how they connect with the Divine. This can be through meditation or
prayer on a daily basis, performing a ritual at a Sabbat or Esbat, or other

There is no wrong or right way to connect with the Divine. It is apart of us. Are we Gods? Of course not, but their essence lives within us from the moment of our existence.
You would think this would be a simple process. But sometimes, at least for me, a person can get bur

Network with others. There is nothing that can get my pagan battery going than attending a pagan festival! Sometimes just talking to like minded folks is a big help.
Do your part to keep mother earth healthy. Reduce, recycle, reuse.
These are just a few of the ideas I have used in the past. What do you do to connect or reconnect with your faith or gods?
