What is a difference between general conversation to a spirit or deity and talking to them in ritual. I know some people like to evoke spirits in a whole ritualistic fashion, but I also know people can talk to them and still get stuff done and manifested in a less ritualistic and more.casual way. I love rituals but why put effort into something elaborate if you can do it in a easier way. I know some people cast circles to come closer to deity, but why put in the effort? What if someone just wants to have a general conversation with a spirit? I usually just light candles and talk. I guess you can call that a ritual but it isn't as elaborate as some peoples. But I guess what I'm trying to say is why put effort into an elaborate ritual if it can just be done the easy way. I actually would love to do more elaborate rituals so please don't get me wrong. Sorry if I offended anybody.
