When performing ritual should one memorize or is it okay to read from a paper. Sometimes its a lot to remember word for word.
You can read from a paper, that is ok.
I read from a paper at times, especially when giving a spirit a task or so. It’s just easier for me to write out the ritual and read from the paper vs trying to remember everything. It seems to work for me.
Even E.A. says to write down the questions you want to ask a spirit, because when in trance TGS it’s hard to remember everything.
