“Smudging” is the common name given to the Sacred Smoke Bowl Blessings, a powerful cleansing technique derived from an ancient Native American tradition. It is a ritual way to cleanse a person, place, object or space of all negative energies or influences. The idea behind smudging is that the smoke attaches itself to the negative energy. As the smoke clears and begins to melt away, it takes the negative energy with it, carrying it into another space to be regenerated. Many people also use Sage to drive out evil spirits, negative thoughts and feelings. It is also used in keeping sacred objects safe from negative influences.
Smudging can be very effective in times where you find yourself depressed, angry, resentful, unwell, or after you have had an argument with someone. We smudge our office on a daily basis to release any negative and unwanted energies in the space. We use it to cleanse our own auric fields, personal spaces and work area.
