The Deuoi are not only reachable around an altar or shrine; rather, they are reachable in every aspect of our lives. I take more of an animistic approach to the Deuoi, which means I often sit under a tree or by a mountain stream and talk with them. For me, this is more connection than a Rite. The Rites, for me, are celebrating the Deuoi, and not the only way to connect to Deuoi.
The Senogalatis have sent me on a devotional path of Dêuocariâ piety. Living in the moment with them, hearing what they are saying as the leaves sing in the breeze, and being connected to the cosmos around the self are the teachings they teach me.
The Deuoi do not lay in idols or temples. Sure one can connect to them as those things are symbols for us to connect with, but the Deuoi are all around us, and within us, they make up the fabric of all there is and is not.
For me, strict discipline is critical to be one with Tricaddontoi (Three Sacred Ways). Within this, we have
Dêuontos – “Way of the Dêuoi”
Anationtos – “Way of Souls”
Biuontos – “Way of Living”

I start my morning with a meditation with Belinos to help align me with the energies he is teaching me to connect with on my path. To be filled with the sublime warmth of his embrace is a great gift. This helps me to be focused and ready to go about my day.

As you do this, imagine the currents flowing through your hands, now slowly bringing your harms and hands down to your lap with your palms up, crossing over each other.
