Smudging & Cleansing Yourself / Your Space

Here at Crystal Harmony UK we have literally become obsessed with cleansing and smudging!!! We love the idea that we can change the energy around us and immediately feel better! We have just had the new smudging kits arrive which are absolutely gorgeous and we cant wait for you all to get involved! Please send us in your smudging selfies and experiences!!! And just in case your not sure where on earth to start or what to do ... here is a handy guide for you:

 

💭The use of dried white sage and burning herbs is a 2,000 year old Indigenous American practice.
🙌🏼Smudging your sacred space, your home or office, or even your body with sage is like taking an energetic shower, or doing a deep metaphysical cleansing. 💨The smoke from dried sage actually changes the ionic composition of the air, and can have a direct effect on reducing our stress response.
🌿When should I smudge?
•When you move into a new living space
...When you begin a new job or start your own business
•Before / after a guest enters your home
•Before / after a yoga or healing session
•Before meditation
•After an argument or any illness
•Upon returning home from crowded situations
💨How do a smudge & cleanse my space / myself?
Place your sage or cedar into your lovely Abolone Shell (a traditional vessel used by Indigenous American people that represents the element of water), light the bundle by holding a flame to it until it begins to smoke. If a true flame appears, shake the bundle gently or blow until it is just embers and smoke. You may need to re-light the bundle a few times during the ritual process. With the loose Sweetgrass, use your charcoal burning disk (or part of it) inside your shell to set it alight.
Once you have a nice smoke going, use your wafting feather to direct the smoke over your body from your feet up to your head, then back down again. As you do this, visualize the smoke taking away with it any negative energy from your life.
🌬🎋You may even like to say words out loud such as; "Air, fire, water, earth. Cleanse, dismiss, dispel." Or “I dispel all negativity from my being / my space and replace only with positive things” (or whatever resonates with you!)
🙏🏼Once you have smudged your body, begin to move through your space. Wave the smoke into all corners, across doorways and into shadow spaces. To maintain the atmosphere of ritual, keep repeating your words in your mind as you diffuse the smoke.
🙌🏼Once the space is cleared, allow the sage or cedar bundle to either burn out or gently press it out in your shell. 🐚You can even bury the remaining smudge in your garden to really feel the completeness of the cleansing ritual. Once buried, the smudging has done its work in completing the cycle. Ideally, you should try to use a new smudge for each cleansing.🙌🏼♥️🌾💨🎋💭🌬🙏🏼🌬🌬🌬🌬🌾🎋🌿🐚🐚
Happy cleansing!
