Consecrating a Sword or Athame


  • Sword/athame
  • Pentacle
  • Consecrated salt and water
  • Incense

Lay sword (or athame) on pentacle, preferably by, and touching, another, consecrated, weapon. Asperge them with consecrated salt and water, then woman pick up the weapon to be consecrated and passes it through the incense smoke and replace it on the pentacle.

Lay your right hand upon the tool and press down, saying:
"I conjure thee, O Sword/Athame, by these Names, Abrahach, Abrach, Abracadabra, that thou servest me for a strength and defense in all magical operations against all mine enemies, visible and invisible. I conjure thee anew by the Holy Name (Goddess) and by the Holy Name (God); I conjure thee, O Sword/Athame, that thou servest me for a protection in all adversities; so aid me now!"

Again asperge, and cense, and the weapon is returned to the pentacle, saying:
"I conjure thee, O Sword/Athame of Steel, by the Great Gods and Gentle Goddesses, by the virtue of the heavens, of the stars and of the spirits who preside over them, that thou mayest receive such virtue that I may obtain the end I desire in all things wherein I shall use thee, by the power of (Goddess) and (God)."

Immediately use it to recast the Circle, but without words.
