When I design my Ceremony I am tempted to throw in everything but the kitchen sink. I have such varied techniques that it gets a little difficult to decide what all I want to incorporate. This is after I do divination to help me decide. I also have conflicting multiple correspondences that all are valid.

I was wondering if any one else has this problem.
No.

I have never been tempted to throw in everything, and, while I've certainly had to put consideration into which bits to choose, I've never had any difficulty choosing.

I've never been tempted to put strawberries into spaghetti sauce, either.  Soups and stews and suchlike are a better analogy for eclecticism than baking is, IMO - but you still need some sense of what tastes will work together, and what won't.  Just because ingredients are yummy, doesn't mean they'll be yummy in that concoction.  And someone who doesn't have some sense of what might or might not work together isn't ready to put down the recipe book and start improvising.

I am always pretty sure which Dieties and spirit guides I am working with. For something like this when I ask thier advice I get something like "well, lets see what you come up with, should be amusing!"
No doubt - many entities that find it amusing when we human types do ill-considered things.
