Guide How To Use Sage/Smudge Instruction
- Open all the windows and doors. Put on your favorite (calming) music.
- Focus your mind on your goal and affirm your intention
- Start burning the Sage as the smoke begins to rise starting at the top of your head, letting the smoke swirl around you.
- Move the sage around your body letting yourself be surrounded in the smoke. When you get down to the bottom of your legs, lift each foot and allow the smoke to swirl under the sole of each foot. Let the smoke absorb around every part of your body.
- It’s important to smudge yourself first so you don’t leave or absorb negative energies when you leave. Recite your affirmation as you begin to smudge the area; move to the front of the building you’re cleansing and allow the smoke to rise and fill every corner, on every wall, over every doorway and window and in every room of the house.
- As you are doing this, recite your affirmation. Be sure to get over, around and under furniture, as these things can hold energy as well.
- Work your way in a clockwise motion through each room until you end up back at the front door. Smudge your entire body one more time.
- Finally, place a pinch of rock salt each corner of each room. This will absorb any negative energy that comes on a normal occasion
