Consecration of Items and Tools

Erin

Any of the items to be used in the rituals, the ones to be used over and over, should be consecrated. This is the ritual cleansing of these items. Thus, the candles and incense and other items that will be used up need not be consecrated. This need only be done once for each item.

This will be written as though a Seax is to be consecrated. The wording should be changed to fit any working tool.

Witch: Mighty Woden and Lovely Freya, here is my Seax, a weapon in thine honor. Purify it for me, and help me to keep it pure in thy service.

[Witch places the Seax on the Altar between the Sword and censer. He dips his fingers in the Salted Water and sprinkles one side, then the other. He then holds it over the smoke of the incense, making sure it smokes all of the Seax. He then holds it high and says:]

Witch: Again here is my weapon. Symbolically I have washed away aught that is evil. I have covered it with the all-encompassing incense of all that I good. Let it always be pure in thy service. And let it keep and guard me from all harm, in all things wherein I shall use it. So be it, in the names of Herne and Rhiannon.

All: So be it!
