On the topic of Greater Magic. What do you think about repeating a ritual. Should you just do one ritual and let it do the work? Is it a bad idea to repeat the ritual, say once a week?

What do you think?

One finishes a ritual stating "so it is done!" - or words to that effect.

As far as I can see that should be it. Done and dusted. I'd personally consider what you're talking about at best unnecessary, and at worst counter-productive. But I suppose you can do what you like.

It's a good point. My thought was, if you repeat the ritual then you are sending more energy, therefore it makes it more powerful.

The idea is that you expel enough energy in order to relieve yourself of tension. If done sufficiently the first time, repeating should not be necessary.

Once thrown out into the ether it can be left to take effect with a degree of indifference on our part.

What's that Hollywood quote about madness; 'Madness is doing the same thing more than once and expecting different results'.
