How to use your Cleansing Ritual Kit
So what exactly is smudging? – Burning sage and Palo Santo is an age old ritual called smudging, its purpose is to cleanse you and your home of negative and stagnate energy.
So why is this important? – Let me give you some examples; Have you ever been to view a potential home and said ‘it just doesn’t feel right’, or have you ever been around a certain person and felt the energy being drained from you, resulting in you just feeling exhausted when you leave? Or do you feel completely uplifted and energised around positive people and you are buzzing when your around them? THIS IS ALL ENERGY!
We are all carrying and transferring energy from ourselves and others around everyday and into our homes. Smudging yourself and your home regularly help to clear those energy fields to help you think clearer and make you feel less stuck. Smudging aids in dispelling negative energy & helps cultivate the feeling of positivity. An added benefit of smudging is purification to fight against bacteria, dust and pollution. We also recommended smudging when your not feeling well.
So how do you smudge? – It’s quite simple and there isn’t really a right or wrong way but this is our preferred way to smudge – Make sure windows are open to allow the stagnant/negative energy to be released. Light your Sage/Palo Santo stick over a fire resistant bowl, once ignited extinguish the flame to allow to smoulder, slowly releasing the cleansing smoke. Take a moment to set your intention and breathe deeply.
Example of intention you can set before smudging –‘ I release any stagnant or negative energy that does not serve me. I welcome positivity, protection & balance’ or whatever feels right for you.
Hold over the bowl and slowly fan around your body and your home.
Smudging is also great to incorporate in your meditation and manifesting ritual for more clarity and calm.
