What does it mean to consecrate your life to Virgin Mary?

I’ve been praying Rosary every day. I believe in her Fatima message and that she and Rosary are the last hope given by G-d to those who live in the modern world. One day I read on Internet that G-d desires each of us to consecrate own life to Virgin Mary. Is this a popular belief within Catholic Church? I kind of hesitate to consecrate, one reason is the idea sounds to me like idol worship. How can you consecrate your self to a person and not be an idol worshiping? Also, does consecration mean more rigorous life? I think I am trying to live my life without sin now. I wonder if I could do better.
