Consecration is the act of removing negativity from on object to be used in ritual and/or magick. For important ritual tools - like the wand or athame, for instance - you should perform a full consecration/dedication ritual like the one below, to prepare your new tool for use in ritual and magick. For small things like crystals, you can simply use a quick consecration charm - I've also got one of those below.

You may have noticed that to cast a magick circle you get told to use your wand, and also that to cast the circle for the full consecration ritual below you are directed to use your wand. Those among you who are really awake will have noticed that you shouldn't use an unconsecrated wand to cast a circle to consecrate your unconsecrated wand. :) The simple answer is that you use your finger (or your already-consecrated athame) to cast the circle for a wand consecration - it's perfectly acceptable to use your finger in place of a wand in circle casting.

Quick Consecration

Hold the object to be consecrated in your hands and visualise it glowing with a white light while saying:

In the name of the Lord and Lady

May all negativity flee from thee.

Pass your new tool over the flame of your candle (carefully!) and visualise it glowing red while saying:

In the name of Fire,

May all negativity flee from thee.

Sprinkle the tool with consecrated water and visualise it glowing blue while saying:

In the name of Water,

May all negativity flee from thee.

Pass the tool through the smoke of the incense and visualise it glowing yellow while saying:

In the name of Air,

May all negativity flee from thee.

Sprinkle the tool with salt and visualise it glowing green while saying:

In the name of Earth,

May all negativity flee from thee.

Place the tool on your pentacle. Trace a pentacle in the air immediately above it with your wand/finger. Imagine the tool glowing white and say:

In the name of the Lord and Lady,

May all negativity flee from thee.

Hold the new tool in your hands and say this purification charm:

Earth and Water, Air and Fire,

Help me, work for my desire.

The Lady, who in all things dwells,

Please lend your aid unto my spells.

To the Horned God, here this night,

Help me work this magick rite.

Cleanse this tool of mine times three,

As I will, so mote it be.

By all the might of Moon and Sun,

Seal this spell and see it done.

Snuff candles and release the circle.
