I cleaned up my house a little today, made sure to vacuum. It's cold outside, so I'll have to do it inside and I lay on the floor. I always wait until everyone else is asleep and the house is quiet.
Since it's so late, I've had a bit of coffee to help keep me awake and alert enough for it. I tend to relax all too easily into etheric space, and I don't want to fall asleep. I'll eat a little bit beforehand too, but not so much as to ground me unnecessarily.
I let the Reiki flow throughout the day, and I'll do a self-healing ahead of time to relax and get ready. I'll probably smudge, either with Sage or Sweetgrass as Spirit moves me. I invite all of our totems and guides to participate. Once I feel centered in sacred space, I'll start the cd and begin. I like to Journey to Sandra Ingerman's drumming cd, and I usually do two tracks.
What do you do to prepare for your spiritual rituals?
