This is a super basic, bare-bones consecration and charging ritual for any object that you wish to cleanse for magickal use. Feel free to use this in its entirety, or as a jumping-off point for creating your own ritual.
Consecration / Energy Cleanse
- (myrrh or patchouli preferably)
- A white candle
- A bowl of water
- A bowl of salt
- The object to be consecrated
Light some incense and a white candle.
Take the item, cover it with salt, place your right hand over the bowl (unless you're left handed, then use your left) and envision a white light leaving your palm and passing through the bowl, washing away all negative energies.
>"Blessed [deity's name/s], with salt and smoke I consecrate this tool in your name(s). Let it serve me well."
Remove the item from the salt, shaking off the salt as you do so, then pass it through the incense smoke, sprinkle it with water, then pass it over the candle flame.
Your item is now consecrated.
Charging / Adding Energy
Now that its cleansed of all energy, its time to put new energy into your object.
After you have consecrated a tool or item, you should charge it. All you need for this part is just the item you are trying to consecrate.
Hold the item above your head. Take a moment to feel the swirls of energy around you. You should be able to feel them tug at you like a current in a river.
In a clear voice, say:
Let the sacred powers of the Universe unite and fill this (item name) with energy.
By the Moon, the Sun, the Earth and the Stars, I charge this (item name) to do my will.
So Mote it Be!
Close your eyes and envision an energy bolt striking the item and causing it to glow. You should feel a subtle vibration while you hold the item.
Your tool is now charged.
