Sacred Smudging

November 17, 2019

If you’re feeling stuck, negative, sluggish, or even downright depressed, it may be due to some stagnant energy in your field. Your field can include your emotional, energetic, mental, spiritual or physical body, and your environment—whether it’s your home, office, or other physical space. Stagnant or negative energy can have extremely detrimental effects on your mental and physical state and is even believed to manifest into things like a lack of happiness and success as well as pain and disease.

 

Smudging can help combat this negativity, clear the energy in your field, and help you start anew. Smudging is an ancient ceremony in which you burn sacred plants, such as sage, to allow the smoke to clear and bless a space. Palo Santo or "Holy wood" is also enjoyed by many for its energetically cleansing and healing properties similar to Sage and Cedar.

 

Here’s a guide to help you get started:

 

  • Light your sage (or other herbs) on fire and then fan the smoke with your feather around your body and anyone else in your space.

  • Make sure to move the sacred smoke around your body from head to toe and front to back before smudging your space.

  • When smudging a space, home or room, this can be done from left to right, moving in a clockwise direction around the space you are cleansing. Set your clear intention to remove all negative vibrations and energies.

  • Open windows when indoors to release unwanted energies.

I would advise to do this on a regular basis, once to three times a week and or as much as you feel necessary.

 

Happy Smudging!
