We have all walked into rooms and felt them to be very welcoming whilst others have felt somewhat cold. Spaces are made up of molecules that resonate with the energy or intentions that interact with them.
The good news we have the ability to change and improve the energy in spaces through simple yet effective means and this is called space clearing or smudging.
Sage that grows locally in the UK is a first choice smudger.
Smudging is ritual alchemy — changing and shifting the air element, and transforming our current experience to a mystical one.
The use of dried white sage is a 2,000 year old Indigenous American practice. The shamans used dried sage plants on their fires as a ritual of calling upon ancestral spirits. Any conflict, anger, illness or evil was absorbed by the sage smoke to be released or cleansed from the energy field of a person.
A good time to smudge is:
- Before meditation
- After an argument or any illness
- Upon returning home from crowded situations
You can buy sage bundles from https://starchild.co.uk/ in Glastonbury or alternatively make your own tying 4 or 5 stems of sage with some hemp string and allow to dry in sunny spot.
Light the bundle by holding a flame to it until it begins to smoke and move around the room or waft it over your aura whilst affirming your positive intentions for your space or body.
When not using place in heat-proof burning surface - ideally a shell— to represent the the element of water.
Happy healing vibes!
