When you feel like your doll is done (and at some point, you just have to declare her “done” or you’ll keep fussing with her forever), create sacred space. Offer her up to the Divine, and charge her with the energy of your intention.
Then name her. Perhaps you already know her name: “She Who . . .”
If not, close your eyes and pretend you are introducing her into a circle of women. Say: “This is She Who . . .” and let the rest of the sentence (her name) unfold.
Then bless her. Keep her on your altar or hang her on your wall, in a special place where she will remind you of your sacred intention.

(I would love to see any Spirit Dolls that you create! Email me a photo, or post it on your own blog, or on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Flickr, or Instagram — and post the link here in the comments! )
