A ritual is a series of symbolic or energetic actions carried out alone or with a group. This is usually on one location for a certain length of time. The spiritual use of rituals is that due to the time involved more energy can be gathered and people can become more focussed and involved in the process. Despite the benefits a poorly done ritual can be risky because of the power which builds up over time. To guide people new to rituals I have compiled a few pieces of advice for a succesful ritual.
