Sage Smudge Stick
Energy Cleansing • Removes Negative Energy • Calms the Mind
Use a white Sage Smudge Stick to open the mind up to forgiveness, compromise and other stages of emotional progress. Burning sage or smudging can have a significant impact when used after an argument, after an illness, before and after parties, after an intense workout, prior to meditation, when moving into a new space and during periods of grieving.
HOW TO USE
A sage smudging cleansing ceremony is the fastest way to clear blocked, negative energy. It neutralises energy. Sage is the most well-known herb for energy cleansing. Use sage to cleanse a home, objects and your crystals frequently. We suggest you also use the ceremony when you are preparing a space for your crystal grid (we will explain more about this in a later post). The ceremony helps create an environment filled with positive energy, as well as removing all harmful and negative energies.
Sage is used in Native American ceremonies to connect with ancestral spirits and cleanse the negative energy brought by negative entities.
HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF WHEN TO PERFORM THE CEREMONY
There are many times to use the ceremony, here are some suggestions.
When moving into a new home
Before and after parties
After an argument
Objects that have been around negative people
Cleansing and energising your crystals
The ceremony releases spent energy. Clearing that used energy out of the home, object or place ensures that you are making room for fresh, positive energy.
HOW TO PERFORM THE SMUDGING CEREMONY
The act of smudging is done with a smudge bowl or abalone shell with the appropriate herbs directly lit or burned on a coal or charcoal tablet. When using charcoal tablets, the bowl or shell should be filled with sand or a flat stone to prevent overheating the container. Smudging is also done with herbs tied in bundles called smudge sticks.
Whichever method you use the smoke is washed over the person or object with a feather or by fanning the smoke with your hand.
- To perform a blessing on a person, begin by looking into the eyes of the person for a moment to 'greet' them, fan the smoke first at their heart and then up to the right side (your left) of the person's head, moving around clockwise (sun-wise, turning from east to west in the direction of the sun), gently washing them with the smoke.
- Continue brushing smoke down over their left shoulder and the length of their arm and back up again to the shoulder. Wash the smoke down the left side of the torso, left leg and foot.
- Now smudge the right foot, up the left leg, torso and down the length of the right arm and back up to the shoulder.
Now turn the person around, turning to their right (sun-wise again) and repeat these movements as you smudge and bless the person's back.
For objects, bless them moving sun-wise (turning from east to west in the direction of the sun) around with the smoke.
For your home or designated room. bless the room and go sun-wise (turning from east to west in the direction of the sun) around the corners of the room.
