What is smudging?
Smudging or burning Sage is a ritual that involves burning sacred herbs or resin.
The herbs used can vary, from the popular forms of sage or cedar to the wide range of herbs like lavender, rosemary and others.
Smudging can be performed to invite positive energy into your home, room or space or any area and energetically cleanse the space.
This can help you create a positive environment for meditation and to set your intention for self-improvement, to sit and let go of negative thoughts.
All you need for smudging is a container or smudging bowl and smudging herbs.
It’s beneficial to open the doors or windows before you start, to make sure the unwanted or negative energy that you are trying to clear will have a pathway to get out.
Then holding the smudge stick in your hand light the end of it, allowing it to catch fire and let it burn for several seconds.
After a few seconds gently blow on the lit end to blow the fire off – the smudge will begin to glow and smoke.
Walk around the area with the smoking sage stick, make sure you reach all the corners in the space you want to cleanse while directing sage smoke all over the surfaces and spaces.
Finally, place the burning smudge on a heatproof bowl to catch the ashes as it burns.
