Creating Meaningful Rituals
A ritual is a perfectly-defined series of words and actions intended to center attention, create significance, and attain favorable results. Rituals have been used since the beginning of time, and are described in many spiritual texts as a normal way of life. They are used broadly in events such as the beginning of something like baby showers, naming ceremonies, weddings, grand openings, and the launch of something. In addition, using them to mark the end of life at funerals and memorials is quite common. As defining moments, some are used to acknowledge celebrations, bachelor parties, graduations, anniversaries, the start and the end of a relationship, as guides to finding a soulmate, in religious/spiritual ceremonies, and at holidays In many cases, rituals are often done under our very noses to enhance one’s well-being.
