Simple Rite to Sulis

I have found that while I am drawn to the elaborate rituals found in books, in real life practice I get much better results and fulfillment if I Keep It Simple.

In the shower last night, I felt an urge to invoke Sulis and ask for her blessings. I took my Sacred Vessel from the Sulis altar in the shower and if filled it with water from the shower. I held it above my head and began to recite my prayer to her.
Sulis, I seek your blessings! Grant me the ability to use your attributes as tools for growth.
I poured the water over my head and refilled the vessel.

Through the Deep Earthly Fire that warms Your Waters, bless me with the steady burn of creative passion.
I poured the water over my head and refilled the vessel.

Through the attributes of Your ever reliable Spring, bless me with the ability to access Your seemingly endless supply of energy.
I poured the water over my head and refilled the vessel.

Through Your ability to heal and cures, bless me with the power to bring about Transformation and Change in my life and those I love through magical workings.
I poured the water over my head and refilled the vessel.

Through the Healing attributes of Your Waters, bless me with the ability and desire to nourish myself with whole foods, good water and plenty of exercise.
I poured the water over my head and refilled the vessel.

I honor you! So Mote It Be!
I poured the water over my head, refilled the vessel and set it on her altar while I finished my shower.

I don’t know where this idea came from, but in the moment it felt right and I honored it. I often get caught up in the idea that I never have enough time. That to be a proper practitioner I need to lay out my salt circle, call all my Ancestors and guides and go through all of the beautiful steps of my Traditions ritual format. However, that is just not true. Each action, no matter how small to honor our Ancestors, Gods and Guides COUNT. And they add up. And they matter. And I promise you, they are noticed.
