|My Box, Fully Deployed|
I have a "Devotional Box" which holds symbols of all four elements, each with a small votive candle, and three taper candles - one for the Goddess, one for the God, and one for myself.
Before I begin, I ground and center. Then I light the candle which represents me. As I say each verse (below) I use my candle to light the candles for the Goddess & God. For the final verse, when I speak to the elements, I use my candle to light the votive associated with each element. As I do each of these actions and say each verse I focus on the "entity" to which I am speaking and envision them filling me with their energy and blessings. I then follow with a short "quiet-time" (not always meditation) where I can simply focus on their presence and my connection with them.

Second is my Affirmation. I usually start my day with this as well, but I will also say this at other points throughout the day when I am feeling depressed, stressed or anxious and need a pick-me-up. There are no "actions" that go with this, I simply repeat the words and focus on them rather than whatever else is going on around me...
I am a Witch.
Powerful, Strong and Proud,
Intelligent and Beautiful.
No force on Earth can shake my Confidence,
for the Elements and Gods are on my side.
Earth and Air, Fire and Water,
Ruled by Spirit, as all should be.
I am my best me...
So mote it be!
I hope these both give you a little glimpse into my life as a Pagan and Witch, and maybe even help you to form your own daily practice.
