To live one's Consecration sincerely ( and St. Louis De Montfort says most don't do this) means to impregnate one's whole life with it. To attain to that end, we must recall it often and renew it frequently. The times to do this are when we awake, at morning prayer, at Holy Communion, during difficult moments of the day, when we are tempted to sin and during the night examen. Little by little with practice and perseverance, calling on Mary to help us, we will constantly call Mary into every thought, word and act and truly live the Consecration completely. But what is more important than multiplying the times we renew it, is the care we put into it, especially seeking to place our entire will and all our whole soul into this effort.
The Grace of the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is a Gift from God through His Mother to purposely help us accelerate the living of one's Consecration and it further allows us to more easily and securely live this Consecration at each moment of the day. Since our whole purpose is to imitate Jesus, and the Consecration allows us to do just that much better than we ever could with our own efforts, are we not foolish if we fail to know, desire and accept the Grace of the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which is an Extraordinary Grace for these times that God begs us to accept?
