Daily/Weekly Routines as a Hellene or Hellenic Pagan
« on: January 27, 2019, 08:37:22 am »
As of late, I've been doing more and more research into hellenic polytheism, and recently finished Hellenic Polytheism: Household Worship by LABRYS. This pushed me to look on the new and old boards of TC for what others do in terms of daily and weekly routines. I have seen the article for the complete morning and evening prayers for Hellenic pagans, as well as the short version. While I'd love to do these... I can already tell that I wouldn't be able to do so due to my schedule as a teacher (up at 5, Gym at 5:30, go to work at 6:45, and then work from 7:45 to 4 PM... bed by 9 PM).

I'm curious: as a Hellenic pagan, what do you daily with the Olympian Deities? What do you do weekly with them?

My favorite ritual is saying a prayer before meals. Weekly, I go to a christian temple and light a candle secretly to the pagan Gods. unfortunately where I live there aren't any pagan temples.

That's understandable - however, you could make a simple area for the Gods by having a spot where you light a candle that you've blessed for Them, and a small dish filled with water. I think they would look favorably on that.

My daily "routine" is to offer water to at an altar stone (multicolor shooter marble) that sits on a sponge in a bowl, with a little 1/2oz cup before it.  Before bed, I fill the cup and take a sip to share the drink, and in the morning I pour the water over the altar stone.  Bare minimum, but I know that it will get done every day.  In an ideal world I'd light a candle and sit there in contemplation while some incense smolders, but it hasn't happened yet.

And then any time I leave home, I offer water to Hekate, Hermes, and Zeus Herkios, who have an altar table outside.

And that's the extent of my practice other than an annual pilgrimage-pomp around the Lake when it's fully thawed in the spring.

An update on my practices...As of late, I have been doing weekly Tarot Card pulls. I tried doing daily, but it just didn't work for me. Weekly allows me to sit and reflect on it throughout the week before I get the urge to do the card pull again. I'm also finding that with the pandemic, I have a lot more time to simply read, and get the research I've been putting off done. I'm hoping that I can read 10 pages a day (I need to pace myself) so that I can effectively analyze and reflect on the book's meaning.

What I do is write hymns in my journal and then sing them. I find doing this before burning herbs with a chant peaceful. I will also, on some occasions, use the Orphic Hymns to do this.
