Consecrating pagan ritual tools

  What is consecration? Consecration is the act of clearing out any unwanted energy from a ritual tool and cleansing the item before use. This will help your ritual experience while using the item. Anything used in spiritual work should be consecrated before use. This includes altars, talismans and can be any item you want to use in ritual.
