Rituals are basically specific actions done on the physical plane that will have corresponding effects on the inner planes. Doing rituals can have a huge effect on your inner being and your daily life. Rituals work because there is a connection between our inner world and our outer world. As above, so below; as without, so within to quote the wise mystic Hermes Tremegistos. A ritual can be as simple as the act of folding your hands together in prayer or as complicated as a Catholic Mass or wedding ceremony. But a ritual done in earnest will help to accomplish any specific goal you have in mind. A simple ritual to improve your psychic ability could be lighting a candle and some incense with a short prayer or affirmation to the Divine for guidance in developing your psychic awareness. If this is done on a daily basis, it will have a powerful effect on improving your life and your psychic ability. You can also develop your own ritual; just remember that at the crux of the ritual is your goal to improve your psychic ability.
