A friend of mine would like to gift me a knife/dagger she already owns, but has never used n has left inactive. Is it alright to use it bc some say used ones might have negative vibrations/energy? If so, I think it'd need to be cleansed separate from n before any consecrations. If so, is there a special ritual cleansing, n what steps would I go through to cleanse it in a spiritual sense so that nothing from its past is attached to it? I feel like just consecrating might seal in something?
That all depend on you. I’m totally cool with using thing from thrift stores and free boxes. I cleanse most stuff to give it a nice once over in its new home but there are very very very few things that I fuss with consecrating because it just seems too formal for me. However, I would also stress that a tool as a gift from a friend is a special gift. You might want to make sure some of that gifting grace sticks around.
