Sacred Cards

I really struggled with this assignment. I'm really not sure why, but nothing felt right about this one to me. I had trouble finding boxes that I felt were the right ones to use. I had trouble deciding what to use for the boxes. Maybe I was overthinking this. No not maybe, I'm sure I was because that's what I do. So that I could complete this assignment that has already taken 2 months for me to do, I finally had to stop thinking. I grabbed the two prettiest boxes that I had available to use.

Then I did a little bit of looking online and I found 2 sigils, one for each box that seemed to fit the occasion of research or spoke to me loudly. I decided to use this one to focus my study:

And this one to help keep me to the path that feels right to me:

Then I wrote my blessing:

Then it came time for the consecration and I became stuck again. I couldn't decide what to do or how to do it. I started looking online for inspiration and with all the information out there, nothing felt right. So, once again, I put my boxes away for a week and then I tried again. I went looking for inspiration in some of the books that I have here at my home and I searched online again to no avail. After 2 weeks of looking for something that felt right, I remembered a small piece of information that made me feel so much better and allowed me to finish this assignment, finally 2 months in the making. If something doesn't feel right, don't do it! I like the energy that my boxes give off already so I don't think I need to do the consecration to make them sacred. In using my cards, they will have the intent and the energy that I want them to have.
It drives me crazy that this assignment has been so hard for me. Now I realize that it was my own fault that it was so hard. Rather than listening to myself and what I needed to do for this assignment, I was trying to do what I thought was expected of me.
