Topic: #ThreeKings #Rituals #Storytelling #Fiction #Podcast
Welcome listeners, today I’m going to be discussing the Three Kings Ritual. A ritual that means something different to every person that performs it, and always leaves people feeling different after finishing it, so today the topic is rituals, real accounts by those that completed them, and mirror gazing.

This Three King Ritual has a strong psychological component to it, and mirror madness as I like to call it, which I’ll get into. And when I say mirror gazing I mean turning off the lights, or having low light, and staring into a mirror for minutes – do this at your own risk. I’ll also be discussing a scientific article that discusses visual perception during mirror gazing with some interesting findings regarding those with depression and schizophrenia, plus their interactions with mirrors.

Also, a HUGE thank you to the 3 recent Patron supports that are supporting this Podcast. No joke, everyone at work, online, the people I chat to over the past three days have asked why I’ve been in such an over joyous mood – I just say, Earl Gray Enforcers. Three new Earl Gray Enforcers have joined the Podcast and I can’t wait to dedicate new episodes to them, thank you form the bottom of my heart mates.
