Smudging is a symbolic exercise found in feng shui practice, many native American traditions, and alternative healing practices. It involves burning selected herbs or other materials in a manner that fills the home or other space with the fragrance of the smoke, and it is thought to clear negative energy.
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 feng shui practitioners find it helpful to smudge the home at least several times a year. Some people smudge as much as once a week. You can also smudge to clear your own bodily energy or the energy of other people.
Smudging can be an effective way to clear negative energy and create good feng shui.
When to Smudge
Whenever you need to re-balance your mental body (self-destructive/limiting thought patterns) or emotional body (fear, anger, depression), or when you desire to let go of/transform any negative energy that is not for your highest joy that’s affecting you or your environment/reality or belongings and to embrace/ground new positive energies in to your being/reality.
Purpose of Smudging
Attracting positive energies to you.
Letting go of negative energies.
To create/enhance positive energy.
Spaces for healing and manifestation.
How to use:
Burn your smudge stick and let the smoke permeate and cleanse. Waft the smoke with the feather so that the smoke cleanses the entire room. Once done, snuff out the fire against an abalone shell, store away in included pouch and save for later use.
BE SURE TO OPEN A WINDOW/DOOR TO CLEAR THE SMOKE FROM YOUR SPACE ONCE YOU ARE DONE. THIS WILL COMPLETELY REMOVE ANY AND ALL UNDESIRED ENERGY FROM YOUR SPACE.
**Please make sure that a smudge stick is COMPLETELY out before leaving the area unattended**
Burning Instructions: Light your smudge from the top end and place the burning smudge on a safe surface. Keep out of reach of children, animals and flammable material.
Setting Your Intention:
While you are smudging your room or your jewelry, make sure that you keep a strong and focused intention in mind.
