GIRP Fire, Technique, Consecration of the Fire Wand

Ave,
So last night, after a day of forcing myself to be patient and complete creating my fire wand, I set about consecrating and empowering it. The patient part is important-nothing screws up a magical tool like hurrying up. I made mine from scratch using a dowel purchased from Home Depot, a Dremel (I love that tool!) for carving out the flame tip, and brightly beautiful paints for it's adornment.

I've been donig the Middle Pillar for years now, though-the visionary part has been mostly consistent, so this stood out for me. I didn't get the light-headed feeling I used to get when practicing lengthy energy work without the vibratory formulae in the Middle Pillar, although I did feel exalted, full of grace. I…
