How do you use Rituals?
This is how I use Rituals. New Moon for intentions to attract your wants and goals. Full Moon To release what may be weighing you down in life! This picture shows the actual barrel my son and I use when it is not too cold or the wind is not blowing. (Safety First)
What is the difference between Traditions and Rituals?
“As nouns the difference between Ritual and Tradition is that ritual is rite; a repeated set of actions while tradition is a part of culture that is passed from person to person or generation to generation, possibly differing in detail from family to family, such as the way to celebrate holidays.”
What is the definition of a Ritual?
A religious or solemn ceremony consisting of a series of actions performed according to a prescribed order.
When should you do Rituals?
There is no right or wrong time! You saw above when I do mine. You may want to look into other times to do yours! But new moons and full moons are excellent times when it seems to be more potent to work with intentions, ceremonies, invocations, and releases.
The New Moon is a time to set intentions and launch new projects. Since new moons happen once a month and signify the beginning of a cycle, you can think of them as a cosmic reset. Take some time to craft intentions that are clear, concise and as specific as you can make them. These intentions inform the universe of your thoughts but they’ll also keep you focused on what it is you’re really after. A new moon is all about creation
The Full Moon is all about releasing. This ritual starts with a simple piece of paper. On a piece of paper, write down whatever problem you have experienced or are experiencing in the present or mostly for me The Past! Sometimes I have more than one piece of paper. Funny, many things seem to come up that I need to release during meditation. Cremating symbolizes finality: there is no going back! This final ritual is a particularly powerful one as it literally reduces whatever thought, feeling, intention, desire or issue you have to dust.
