Just did a sabbat ritual.
« on: September 21, 2011, 06:28:36 pm »
Hello everyone :) Okay I have a little issue. I been notcing when I did a esbat ritual couple weeks ago I felt weird. Then today I just did a sabbat, It didnt feel weird, but something inside me told me no try something else. I think this is because doubt always streams through my mind. a little voice inside saying "how can that be? its not real" but I ignore that and still belive. Its that little doubt. I dont know if when I do a ritual to make it less formal. Then again today I did it free style. Is there a way I can still use my altar or make rituals less unconfortable? Thanks and blessed be

Addy -

You asked what seems like a really similar question just about 10 days ago, but I don't see posts from you in that thread after your initial question. I suspect you might get some more useful answers if you could let us know what you think about the comments there, or how they fit with what you're trying to ask.

Are you wondering whether rituals are effective? How to make them feel more useful to you? Whether that little voice of doubt is normal or okay? (As I said in my response there, it's a really common thing many people experience.) Something else? It's hard to tell from what you've said here, without a bit more help from you.

(For anyone else wanting to refresh their memory: http://www.ecauldron.com/forum/showthread.php?1318-rituals-a-must-have is the thread in question.)
