Have you heard of the term “Smudging”? It’s where people burn sage, plant-based resins, incense or herbs to help to clear their energy field, auras and sacred environment.
This magical process has actually been backed by science to suggest that there are amazing health benefits too to clearing your space with smoke.it can help to purify the air within a 24-hour period. It also helps to ground the vibration and generate negative ions which help to reduce stress, tension, and animosity that could have built up in your energetic environment.The science stuff is awesome, but I much prefer to focus on the energy management side of things to keeping your environment at a high vibrational frequency.
After all, if your energy is clear you can manifest at a faster rate. Sound like a plan?
So how do you burn sage?
You sit in quiet meditation for 5 minutes and ponder your invocation or intention. For example:
Light the sage with a lighter and walk slowly around the room and blow the smoke in the corners.
How often should you burn sage?
As often as you feel you need to clear your space. For example, if you have a heavy-going conversation with someone or a spirited disagreement, sage is a great way to reset the vibe and mood.
Where do you buy sage?
You can buy it at Wholefoods and also on Amazon: most new age bookstores should have a good supply for sale.
Hint: I would also highly recommend that you burn sage before setting intentions or during rituals for what you would love to manifest. This helps to clear the air (literally) and create the environment of beginning with a clean slate. Sage is also great to cleanse any stones, furniture, clothes that might have been used by someone else and you want to clear the energy.
