Our Personal View: Smudging generally means burning bundles of herbs or plants, such as Sage, Cederwood, Sweetgrass, or Palo Santo and letting the smoke from the bundle cleanse your house, spiritual area, or even your own body. I use this method of Cleansing before meditation and before working with any client. I will always “smudge” the house or the room if there has been an argument or even if you can just feel heebie jeebie vibes. It can alter the energetic vibrations and frequency surrounding you and your space, therefore making it a practice to really use in everyday life, though make sure you always have a window open to let all the negativity & smoke out!
How To Smudge: Light one of the ends of your smudge bundle until it burns for a few seconds. Let the flame extinguish on its own or move it around to help it self-extinguish.
Softly blow on the lit end of the bundle a few times to increase the effectiveness of the consistent burning of the smudge.
For catching the ashes and to protect yourself and your space from being burned, try using an abalone shell, porcelain bowl or bowl filled with sand.
Be sure to have a window or door open to allow the negative energy to release from your space.
While there is no best direction to smudge in, some people choose to go in a clockwise direction from the front door or entryway of a room paying particular focus to dark or unused corners and outlining all windows and door frames.
Once finished, be sure to successfully put out your smudge bundle and bless your space (you can do this with Palo Santo or incense sticks also).
Most importantly, smudge with intention! You can say a prayer or mantra before you begin the practice stating the purpose or reason for smudging and what you want to expel or get rid of in your space.
TIP: Many people like to let the smoke wash over them first, cleansing them of negative energies before beginning to smudge the space.
Some people use smudge bundles to cleanse their auras or energies or that of their friends or family members. This is generally done by allowing the smoke to wash over your body or by using your hand or a feather to help push the smoke around your body.
I hope you have lots of fun with this practice for many years to come.
