The importance of a daily practice
I know Terri would say it was really important.

I have noticed of late that when I skip the prayer/devotions I do and/or skip using aura sprays my day really doesn't go all that well.

I am also persevering with the pujas Terri recommended each time I take a bath, and am noticing a cumulative effect.

So at the moment I do prayers, devotions; use aura sprays; and get outside for fresh air and exercise at least once a day, as well as doing pujas regularly. I would really like to add a brief meditation to this, but I find it really hard to set aside time for that without my head still racing about everything else that needs to be done.

As I take a walk at least once a day I wondered whether a walking meditation would be better, though I do tend to "use" that time saying some affirmations in my head anyway.

What is your daily practice? Do you think it needs to be added to? Do you think it's important to be strict with yourself and do it daily?

Walking meditation is perfect for you, Sharron. <3

Daily practice is imperative for me. Though it's not always the same each day. My life, just like everyone's, gets in the way.

My ideal daily practice is:

In the shower, do a puja. And, imagine the water washing all the negativity in my energy away.
Meditate directly after.. bubbling for the day included.
On my drive to work, look at the world around me mindfully.
At work, take small breaks to walk outside and be in touch with nature.
In the evening, to journal and meditate. Fall asleep with my intentions.

However, sometimes, the meditation does not happen in the morning.. like this morning when Emerson is awake and needs my attention. I'll just meditate this evening for a bit longer. I was mindful on my drive to work this morning. I am right now doing some affirmations in my mind. :) It's all just choosing to be mindful of the Divine during the day somehow, each day.. however you can! Touching the space where we are connected to Spirit/Divine/God/Universe (whatever you like to call it) is something that is best when we do it every day!

Oh yes, falling asleep with intentions in mind is one of my FAVORITE things to do!!! I have beautiful dreams and often wake up saying a completely different (and often new) affirmation ♥

I forget to practice daily and I forget to say Thank You! I haven't done major magickal work since before my eldest son was born. I just lost touch and took a break. I am starting anew as a family. We did a family ritual for litha and the boys loved it.

I am often forgetful to much stuff. I do however pray at night before I fall asleep

Re: The importance of a daily practice
In the morning I write 10 things I feel gratitude for. During the day I do some other exercise involving gratitude or love (using a book that came to me with 28 days of very helpful exercises), then at the end of the day I hold my Magic Rock, think about the best thing that happened to me that day and give thanks.

I got off doing my exercises and felt like I was drifting back so I am determined to make sure I do my daily practices.
