Basically religious rituals if imbibed with a spirit of dedication (rather than just done mechanically for some material gain ) can progress one in that direction.
Idol worship , shloka / mantra recitation , deity offerings all are part of such rituals.
If however you are looking for any specific Tantra practices , I am not having elaborate knowledge of it and someone more experienced can guide you better.
