Rituals play important roles in both sacred and secular life. The way you prepare for your day is a ritual. The way you travel to work is a ritual. Holiday celebrations are rituals. Rituals serve as links between past, present, and future, providing a sense of order and continuity. Wiccan rituals take you out of the mundane realm and bring you into the magickal one. The steps of a ritual build energy and enable you to release it toward your goal.
