SMUDGING 101: A BEGINNERS GUIDE TO CLEANSING YOUR HOME AND AURA
We are all well aware of the benefits of exercise, eating healthy organic food and incorporating a much needed self care routine into our lives, but what about spiritually cleansing? Many may think of smudging as hocus pocus but it is just as important to clear away any unwanted energy that we consume from being around other people and situations. It has been scientifically proven to clear up to 94% of airborne bacteria as well as giving wisdom, clarity, and increasing spiritual awareness.
Your Step by Step Guide to Smudging:
- Gather the following items together; your chosen white sage, heatproof bowl, lighter, smoke fan (can be a smudge fan or just be your hand).
- If you are indoors open a window so that the energy (and any excess smoke) can flow away.
- Light the sage and allow it to catch a flame. Once it is burning very gently blow out the flame. It will then begin to smoulder and give off smoke. You will need to relight and repeat this step during your smudging Cleanse.
- Walk around your space, waft the smoke with your hand (or Smudge Fan) making sure to get into all the nooks and crannies. Take your time to do this and make sure your actions are filled with positive intentions. Think about the energy you want for the space.
- Once you feel you have altered the energy in the way you wished, place the sage into your heatproof bowl and allow it to cool. You will find that most will stop smouldering quite quickly.
