I do not practice any religion but have a variety of spiritual beliefs I pull from. I do not pray or preform any rituals in my daily life but have wondered if they could concentrate powers or strengthen abilities. I some times do a form of self hypnosis to help my concentration and perhaps that is a form of ritual to some people but it seems to me a ritual goes beyond ones self. My sister who is a strict Baptist is very clear that the power of prayer and communion are necessary for her spiritual well being. For Wiccans or Druids do feel they must preform rituals for success or is the thought or intent enough? Why does burning incense or candles of a specific colours increase the strength of the intent more then just personal will?
I don’t intend to argue anyones point. I really am interested. Also in paranormal investigation do you use ritual? Please share.
