If God is universal life force, the ultimate beginning and center of all things, which I truly believe, then God does not discriminate how you connect.
He says thou shall have no other Gods, meaning if it takes you an object, routine, meditation to receive that mindset, to see and hear Gods love, than so be it.
It is not our job to scare people or to make exclusions. It is not my job to convert everyone to Jesus. Nor is is my job to get people following the Moon or any other concept, other than love. Just by allowing God's presence into the conversation, you are allowing His affect.
When you use life force energy , in crystals , in reiki, in prayer, in meditation- the visualization is the same. There is One flow of unity and pure love. There have been times I did not feel strong enough with my visuals alone, or my words, because EGO, and I’ve had to carry around a certain rock to remind myself of a specific facet of God Force energy.
This works because it all is the same. Rituals work because it is whatever YOU need to connect to God. There is a space of spirituality that only you can find. No one can do this for you. And God knows that. He did not say the only way to approach / share me is by calling my name alone. No, in fact, Rituals are a part of the Bible. A part of every ancient text for that matter. Christ said 'those with ears to hear let them hear'. We are here to dive deeper. Experience and receive the Love anyway you can. This grows. And expands. Trust that your God (mine is Jesus) will make himself known and continue to commit body, mind, and spirit unto curiosity, love, and servitude of what you find.
The Universe is way too intelligent to make mistakes.
Do not fear you are not “doing the right thing” or “speaking the right way”.
Come as you are. And the Universe will take care of the rest.
If you were looking for specific Biblical references to rituals, here is that too:
