*Note: This is about the Ritual of the Senut and not about libations in general.*
You need to understand what this libation is doing.
It is not an offering–not in the traditional sense.
It is a doorway.
It is calling upon the Foundations
to open the way–
so that We may communicate.
Do not consume this offering.
You are calling upon your Dead to support you.
You are calling upon Wepwawet to guide you to Us for this is His role as Opener of the Way.
You are calling upon the Wisdom of your teachers to support you.
You are calling upon Ma’at to strengthen this bond
for She is the foundation of all the worlds.
What do you think you are doing, dear child?
What do you think you are doing?
You are opening the way between the worlds.
Water is a liminal element, creating liminal space.
It is the conduit in which you are connecting to Us.
You are eating the doorway.
Unless you want to become a doorway yourself.
Unless you want to become a Shaman’s Gate–
Do not eat this libation.
Offer water separately to Us to drink or to give to your pets.
That is fine.
But this specific libation–pour out.
It is a ritual conduit.
It is a ritual tool.
Do not consume it.
Dispose of it when you are done.
