What Are Rituals?

According to websters dictionary, rituals are defined as “The established form for a ceremony or series of acts that is always performed in the same way: the order of words prescribed for a religious ceremony.”  Now, that is true, but rituals aren’t only performed in religious context. The way you make a cup of tea everyday can become a ritual. To put it simply, rituals are a set of actions that are performed with intention. You can also look at rituals as routines that nourish your soul on a day to day basis. The actions you perform have value, meaning, and significance. 

Now That we’ve established the importance of rituals, let’s look at the difference between, what I like to call, Practical and Ceremonial Rituals.Practical Rituals are actions we perform in our everyday. Making your bed, working out, Lighting a candle before bed, etc.Ceremonial Rituals serve some type of purpose. For example, Manifestation, Protection, or the giving of offerings. These rituals also aren’t performed on a daily basis.

Along with the practice, there are tools that can be used to assist you through the Ceremony like sage, and crystals.
