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. I don't have these issues when I do themed ceremonies based off of a certian path, only when I am planning something that calls for multiple paths to work harmoniously.

It is kind of like baking a cake. My base recipies are just fine, It is when I have to choose between all the delicious ingredients that could go in.

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!"

Any advice, personal stories or musings are appreciated, thanks.

My goodness, that sounds busy!

For me, it's a careful, slow design. I have two record books, one for rough drafts and one for the final ritual; I take the time to scrawl out every aspect of the ritual in my rough draft book, from various verse and lists of necessary objects and to carefully written, grammatically correct instructions and even sketches of illustrations, which I like to add around the pages as if the book belonged to an old monastery.

It comes together slowly, patiently, but with zest.
