I'm still learning this practice, I hope to begin my Year & A Day in January 2015. This information written below is to assist my practices, but may be adapted and implemented for others, if so desired. Blessings!

Thriteen Goals for Myself:
1. Practice my craft every single day and night, if possible.
2. Be a positive force in the world and never intentionally harm.
3. Protect animals, the elements and fellow humans to the best of my ability.
4. Learn acceptance & patience as virtues.
5. Surround myself by the elements, equally worship them all.
6. Give back to the beautiful Mother Goddesses, however I can.
7. Never depend entirely on Magick.
8. Always keep a logical and scientific belief system within my mind.
9. Honor the seasons and celebrate them properly.
10. Be the best I can, never surrender to negativity.
11. Study mythology to gain understanding of the deities.
12. Admit my mistakes, learn from them and grow as a person.
13. Be proud, never boastful.

My Practices:
I'm a believer in Animism, Naturalism and Soft Polytheism. I'm not Wiccan. I'm a Pagan. I'm not religious, but spiritual. I don't believe in Summerland. Rather, the belief that our spirits rejoin our loved ones for enternal peace. I see the deities as teachers, learning from the creation of their myths for guidence. I believe they are repersentations of nature, not actual supernatural beings. I strive to learn balance, that's my passion.

- Demeter, Goddess of the Earth.
- Persephone, Goddess of the Seasons & Queen of the Underworld.

I awoke to the beautiful echos of rain outside my window. My state really needs the water and I couldn't be happier. To show my gratitude, I took some dried flowers and replanted them outside. I found a large rock near my bedroom and placed them there. I also used an old vase to collect some rain water for later usage. I put a fallen branch, leaf and nearby rock inside to keep the scent of Earth. I also stood on the large rock and let the droplets of rain fall on my face, it was so relaxing.

Song List:
(I listen to these while practicing or when I want to feel more in touch with my spiritual practice.)

Daughter of the Elements
- Personally, I believe I'm guided by the Daughter of the Moon & Daughter of the Night.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhC8U4sbgTM

We All Come from the Goddess
- The very first Pagan song/chant I ever heard. I think it's beautiful.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WoVNveJFTig

Goddess Protection Chant
- A relaxing chant that I use when I'm frightened by the world.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jajOFQMS7rw

Earth My Body
- I use this chant when trying to center myself before practice.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWthHKwjyh8

Celebrate the Rain
- Perfect for showing gratitude to the fresh rain.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eB0Y9B2xDQ0

Persephone
- A perfect song for honoring Persephone.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mw5Uv89Wz98

Persephone
- Another song giving tribute to the beautiful maiden Goddess.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5auOSWktBiw

Persephone
- My personal favorite, because it mentions Hades and Demeter with their aching hearts for the maiden Persephone to return to them.
