I've also found that familiarity eases those feelings; after doing one type of full moon ritual over the course of a year, I was finally at ease enough with what I was doing to sense the energy raised and collected. I stopped struggling to remember each step and I learned to enter a mental state that allows me to 'forget' that the aspects of ritual, taken out of context, can sometimes look silly and goofy.

Doesn't anything feel silly or unfamiliar when you first try it? I think that's true for me. experimentation's description made me think of my horse back riding: when I started, I had to think about the placement of my hands, my heels, my legs...Now some of those things have gotten easier. It's just muscle memory.

This definitely happened to me during my first ritual. I didn't know what to do with myself, or what was supposed to be happening. It's definitely eased, and I feel comfortable with myself. You just have to convinve yourself that it's worth working through the awkward period.
