I've been thinking on the subject of the use of tools in ritual and I thought I'd pick your brains for a bit. Smiley Some questions:
What tools do you use doing ritual or other religious work?
How do you use them?
What do they represent?
How did you decide on them? (IE, are they tradition specific, historically informed, UPG, something else?)
Are there any special rules involved with them? (IE, no one else can touch them, you have to make them yourself, etc?)
How necessary are they? If you couldn't use your tool, are can you substitute/adapt, or do you just go without?
