Ritual


There are many ritual structures out there, but they don’t tell people how to make a spiritual ritual. The important things to do are as follows :

Do your research. Put deities together who will get on and if (for example) it’s an Irish ritual don’t invoke Herne the Hunter. Research what offerings the deities will like by reading the stories and seeing what they like and don’t like.

If you’re not sure about what you’re doing then shelve it until you’ve had time to research it further and try it out on your own or ask advice from someone else.

Don’t lead a ritual if you’re not comfortable with leading people or feel you don’t know about ritual enough to do it. Gracefully bow out if you can and if they won’t take no for an answer then I would throw a sickie and seriously consider my future in the group.

Select your attendees and/or participants carefully. Make sure the participants know what they’re doing, why they’re doing it and don’t have any problems with it. Make sure the attendees take it seriously. It’s okay to carry the odd person, but once it gets to more than the odd person they really drag the ritual down.
