:consecrate_spell: Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE - Consecration

Oh, @Shadeweaver oh lovely :heart_eyes: & I have a similar practice… EVERYTHING gets cleansed & consecrated. I have a few things dedicated, but those are more for my deities or ancestors. Absolutely not confusing anything more than I possibly did… I also have the same type of beliefs about all “things” including everyday “things” & kind of a… the earth :earth_americas:, nature… will provide me with everything I need & that in itself is sacred. :smiling_face:

Oh lovely :heart_eyes: @Amethyst! I love to do quite a few things that the lovely @SilverBear has shared with us. Whether as they are or work them in my practice in a way that is comfortable for me & makes sense or feels right. :hugs:

@EvaCVM ooo… I do this too, its a process but anything that I use or that goes into my witchiness in any way gets cleansed. I always do it with things such as your pack of keys. I have things like that because I love to make things & will use different charms & such to do so. :blush:

I really have to get into my room & do a something… but I can’t decide what I would like to do or to what… especially with my space in such disarray at the moment :flushed:


Maybe consecrate something that will help you get things straightened up in your mind. A talisman or sigil that you doodle.


Ooo… I’m leaning more toward a talisman of some kind… I’m not really confident or sure of myself with sigils yet. Now to go find a something… goodness knows I have many things to use for this…

It’ll be like my very own scavenger hunt! :laughing:


I love that pack of keys. :heart_eyes: They’re so intricate and beautiful.

What an adorable little bird! :black_heart: I love the idea of hanging something in the car. Perhaps I should do the same, considering the fate of our last car… :thinking:



I have a tendency to consecrate everything including the finished product. Think regular consecrating mixed with OCD.

I had big plans for this week.
Consecrations of my Altar and everything on it, find the box that is missing and consecrate, get everything the way it’s supposed to be and do 1 of 2 others.

After the issue with my Tarot deck I decided that it needs more than a simple consecration so I took a closer look at the deck I got after the original issue to see if I could connect with it.

I must not taken much of a look to begin with. Much of the imagery is very different, including one of my key cards. I can’t work with it.

So… I spent most of my Samhain budget on a new deck :sparkles: :grinning: I pre-ordered it a while back but I had to cancel it. I shopped around for days and ended up not able to stay away from that one. And I love everything about it. Apparently it’s had to have a waiting list several times, I guess I shopped at the right time.

So that will need consecrating but I have started the beginning of a lengthy and timed consecration ritual for them.

Having that going I guess that would be the main part of my entry. I did however do a small consecration of something else as well, but that’s a little too personal to share.



Each morning, I rub a tiny amount of oil between my fingers and apply to the heads of my statues on my altar to awaken them. My little verse:

With this anointing, a sacred rite,
I awaken your spirits, shining light.
Triad of Abydos, eternal and true,
In reverence, I commune with you.

5 drops Frankincense
3 drops Myrrh
2 drops Rose
2 drops Cedarwood
2 drops Juniper

Why these oils?
Frankincense is believed to enhance spiritual connection was used often in Egypt during ceremonies for deities.

Myrrh is associated with purification, protection sacred spaces. Myrrh was also used often to honor deities.

Rose essential oil symbolises love, beauty, and femininity and can therefore be linked wirh Isis.

Cedarwood is grounding and protective. It can be linked with Osiris.

Juniper is known for warding off negative energies.it can be linked to Horus the Protector.

I mixed these oils with a teaspoon of carrier and keep in a little bottle.

It is after this point, I “dress” my statues by applying the cloaks I made for them. The reason for this is that the priests of the temples would awaken the deities by placing oil on their ststues and then adorning them with clothing of some kind. This was because they beleived that the statues were physical representations of the Gods and so needed comfort, protection and nurture.

At night, I remove the robes and cover the statues, again mirroring the Ancient practice of providing the statues with rest. The next day, they are awakened again


Everyone has such beautiful altars. :black_heart: It’s so inspiring to see them all. :sparkles:

I can’t wait to set my new one up after we move. :smile:

**challenge entry **
Ok so firstly thanks to those who have tried to help me get my head around the difference between cleansing charhing dedication and consecration. Ive so appreciated it. Ive followed links given and even trird to look further to see different ways it is explained. Ive avoided christian references, not having a problem with christians or christian witches but purely because of my past experiences i focused on witch based explanations of consecration.

I have found this is perhaps an area i lacked in knowledge and i hope its ok that as i feel i need further understanding before i try actually consecrating that for this challenge i was looking more at educating myself on the topic and reflecting on how i could do this, what i might like to do this with and how this might impact my practice and how i use things. Would i need to make adjustments or make sure if had one thing for magic workings ie sonething like an ordinary object that if only used in magic workings but i might use that sort of object for other things that i have another of that object to use for normak tgings. The example in my head right now might be a spoon. Say a spoon used for magic could be consecrsted. But id make sure i had other spoons for say like eating or cooking unless im using kitchen magic n the wooden spoon is being used in magic through cooking. Its been less a practival experienve but more a reglective and research n learning experience for this challenge but once i have my head more around this topic n how to use n what to use for i would like to try. But for now for this challenge i am mearly setting myself to fill in a gap in my witchy knowledge :grin:i hope that is ok


That sounds perfect to me! :black_heart:

I see the challenges as guides, promoting us to explore a certain topic within a certain timeframe, to help us get it done. How far we go is entirely up to us and while it doesn’t seem as “practical,” I assure you that learning is a very valid and valuable way to approach it! :smile:


I hope you had fun finding something!


Beautifully said and I couldn’t agree more! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Yes, that is absolutely okay! Learning more about the topic is a great way to take on the challenge :+1: Your entry is awesome, Phoenix- thanks for giving it a go!


Oh, you are so sweet! :purple_heart: :blush: :purple_heart: I have to admit my altar space is my desk, which is a glass top adjustable desk that lends well to easy cleaning! I do admit I get piles of things here and there that I have to clean up every couple of days as I’m an out-of-sight, out-of-mind kind of person and leave things out so I remember to take care of them! But rituals and challenges are a nice opportunity to get my desk/altar space under control a couple of times a week. :grin:


Challenge entry - I’ve been reading a lot about Lilith lately so I decided to consecrate my Lilith necklace I put a charcoal tab in my cauldron and lit Vesta powder in it then passed the necklace through the smoke.

Have you all heard about the British Museum “Feminine Power: The Devine To The Demonic” ? It’s a beautiful museum that covers all aspects of Lilith! :black_moon_lilith:
