The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: Consciousness During Ritual

DEFINITIONS

Consciousness During Ritual:

Within a ritual, you are in a state of light trance, and you do not want anything to startle or jar you back into full objective consciousness until the ritual is over. The Ritual must work up without interruption to an absorbed seeking of inspiration from the Holy Guardian Angel.

Carl Llewellyn Weschcke
