What is Smudging?
Smudging is a traditional feng shui practiced by many native Americans. It involves burning selected herbs or other materials in a manner that fills the home or other space with the fragrance of the smoke to clear negative energy. Although it may seem difficult or awkward at first, its pretty easy to do.
Smudging is an ancient and sacred ceremony, so it is best to perform it with full awareness and in a slow, mindful manner. Even the happiest homes accumulate negative vibrations over time, so we find it helpful to smudge the home at least several times a year. Some people smudge as much as once every few days. You can smudge your workplace periodically (though preferably not during busy office hours), and you can also use smudging to clear your own bodily energy or the energy of other people.
Smudging is an effective way to clear negative energy and create good energy[/os_box_with_image_and_features][os_box_with_image_and_features image_url=”1422″]
Here What’s You Need
There are only four items required in order to begin smudging your home:
- Smudge stick
- Candle and matches
- Fireproof container
- Bowl with sand (to extinguish the smudge stick after smudging)
Light the candle and take (3-4 deep breaths)
When lighting the candle it is recommend to say a prayer, or just mentally focus your energy. Light the smudge stick with the candle and wave it in the air until you see it smolder. (a lighter works as well if no candle is available).
Turn off all TV’s and eliminate all noise (as much as possible)
Begin at the front door
First be safe, hold the smudge stick in a container you can walk around with.
It is recommended to start smudging your home from the front door working your way clockwise around the your home. Make sure you pay close attention to corners of rooms, attics, and areas where there may be no doors or windows. Negative and harmful energies often become trapped in these areas.
After completing the clockwise movement through your home, return back to the original starting point and continue to smudge any individuals including yourself!
After smudging extinguish the smudge stick in sand or in fireproof container.
How To Smudge Yourself and Others
It is a good to smudge yourself, both before and after you smudge the house. Or, there may be times when it is necessary to smudge family members or friends. Here is how to do it:
Once your smudge stick is lit and smoldering, direct the smoke waves to the overall energy field around your body, starting with the area above your head and continuing down to your feet. Do not forget to breathe deeply as you do this.
Smudging can also be done in the reverse order—starting with the soles of the feet, going up both sides of the legs, torso, arms, and finishing by smudging the space above the head. Choose whatever method feels right for you.
The same steps apply when you are smudging another person.
It is recommended to to focus your thoughts and energy on the cleansing of bad or negative energy.[/os_box_with_image_and_features][vc_progress_bar values=”%5B%7B%22label%22%3A%22Remove%20Negative%20Energy%22%2C%22value%22%3A%22100%22%2C%22color%22%3A%22bar_orange%22%7D%2C%7B%22label%22%3A%22Provide%20Mental%20Focus%22%2C%22value%22%3A%2290%22%2C%22color%22%3A%22bar_orange%22%7D%2C%7B%22label%22%3A%22Spiritual%20Cleanse%20%22%2C%22value%22%3A%2290%22%2C%22color%22%3A%22bar_orange%22%7D%5D”][vc_btn title=”Order Your Smudge Sticks Now” color=”blue” size=”lg” align=”center” css_animation=”fadeIn” button_block=”true” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fmailchi.mp%2F1790b826aa6c%2Fsage-smudge-sticks|title:smudge%20sticks|target:%20_blank|”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][os_box_with_image_and_features image_url=”1396″]
