Traditionally, oil lamps, incense and food were offered to the Neteru (Egyptian pantheon) on a daily basis.
find some music that you feel evokes Her presence, make your offerings, and ask for Her wisdom.
In the light of darkness I'll find my way I've shed my sorrow, at least for today I have never felt so strong Life is rushing through my veins With my heart and mind aligned I can stand the test of time I have never felt so proud Of what I feel and who I am When life brings me to my knees Nothing will ever get me down "Euphoria" by Angels and Agony
I wish I could help you more. I will check with some of my other group outside of SP and see if someone else has some rituals for Bast. You and your dad's kitties are in my prayers and thoughts. Blessings and warm hugs.
