R is for ritual

Since August 2013 I participated in Patti Digh’s 137 Days counting down the last few months of 2013. One of the pleasing rituals that I practiced was transferring an item from one container to another to ‘let go of’ or release the day. Along with this blessing:

Today was a day of glorious imperfection. And that is what made it beautiful. I thank this day. And I let go of it, deeply.

Patti had us write the things we were grateful for on a scrap of paper and collect them all, I used screws to count down the days here are my goodies from 2013:

2013 P137

My 2014 ritual is to move little items like stones, shells, sea glass, any tiny item into this glass jar. I say the blessing and drop it in to release the day. I write five things I am grateful for in my journal and five things I accomplished that day. There is incredible power in this small practice. And incredible peace. Do you have an end of day ritual or practice?

One thought on “R is for ritual

  1. Until I broke my “write” hand, I too participated in the 137 Days Project and enjoyed the PM ritual…and then I lost track and initiative, tho’ I did try to continue capturing my daily gratitude…I am still doing my daily “iHeart” gratitudes but I think I’ll add the ritual, too. I like what you’re doing…thanks and
    Cheers~
