My body is my Temple

Today was a Temple Day. Temple days are days where I do extra good things for my body and health, and perhaps combine it with some spiritual or circle work.

So today, I made myself a delicious green detox smoothie (recipe to follow) had healthy (store bought!) sushi for lunch, and did some Yoga using the following elegent app: Yoga Studio

It’s been a while since I’ve done Yoga, and I realised how out of balance I was with the element Earth! However I set my intention: dedicating my practice and the energy raised to something I am working towards in the magikal realm, and centred myself. I felt wonderful afterwards!

Finally, later today, I did a beautiful house blessing for the whole of my home, calling to Bridget in her aspect of Goddess of the hearth. And I have treated myself and my alter to beautiful potted bulbs, as an offering to Bridget, which will be in flower soon. And the palest of pastel pink roses: the colour makes me think of pink tinged skies at dawn, and somehow remind me of the season of air we are now embarking on.

Here is promised recipe:

Green Goddess Detox Smoothie

Add everything to blender and blend until smooth. Serve chilled or over ice. Delicious and refreshing!

What do you do if you want to treat your body to something good, or make your soul sing?
