  • What is Smudging?

    White Sage Smudge Stick White Sage Smudge Stick

    When For Heaven's Sake customers ask, "What is Smudging?" we tell them it's a process used for healing. The smoke is used to bless, cleanse and heal the person or object being smudged. It is used to 'wash off' the outside world when one enters ceremony or other sacred space.

    The smudging ceremony is a Native American tradition and is performed by burning specific dried herbs, like Sage, and letting the smoke float around the house. Depending on the size of the house, the entire ceremony should take anywhere from 10-15 minutes. Here are the steps we suggest for smudging your house/space:

    1. Light a candle and say a prayer and/or focus all your engery
    2. With a fire-proof bowl in hand, light your smudge stick with the burning candle and gently move the stick around until it begins to produce smoke
    3. Begin moving in a clockwise direction around your house/space. Wave the smudge stick throughout the room, paying special attention to the corners. Stagnant energy builds in the corners of a room. Use the fireproof bowl to catch any falling embers from the smudge stick.
    4. As you make you way into rooms with cabinets and closets, be sure to smudge in those spaces - including under the sink, the laundry room, even the mirrors in the house need smudging. Gently wave the smoke in all these areas.
    5. When you have made a complete clockwise trip through the house (including your garage), stop where you started and extinguish your smudge stick. Once it has time to cool, you may store it for additional use at a later date. You might use the entire smudge stick during your ceremony! But if not, it may be reused.

    When asked how often a space should be smudged, we say only you can know the energy of your space. If it begins to feel heavy within a week or two, smudge again. Some people smudge every few weeks, others every few months - it's really up to you.

    Find your smudge sticks in our store - we have a variety of sizes. If you worry about using a lit smudge stick, we do carry Smudge Spray, and it may be used to cleanse your spaces.

  • FULL MOON IN ARIES – SEPTEMBER 30TH 2012 - Synopsis

    KEY WORDS:

    <Revolution>

    < Transformation>

    <Action and Independence>

    <Clearing and Forgiving>

    <Alchemy>

    Aries at this time holds the energy of SELF. This can be self absorption or self examining. Be wary of slipping into victim mode, You can use this energy to look at what you have achieved over the past few months, and what you still need to accomplish.

    This full moon is still heavily influenced by the volatile Pluto / Uranus dance going on in the heavens. (This energy will influence and play out for the next 3 years) However, the volatile aspect is more `external` and we will probably see even more unrest and conflict/confrontation around the planet – These past few days have seen political confrontations from the masses in Spain and Portugal.

    This will continue to play out all over the planet until a new and fair balance is established.

    Personally the picture is considerably better – This time of `revolution and transformation` can be used as a spring board for us to really change our lives,, Aries will help you see what has GOT TO GO now,,, and we can focus on what we want to change / manifest/and move into for the rest of our lives. Alchemy is available for each of us.

    Work from your Heart – Continue the work, and literally anything is possible….

    Blessings,

    Anne Clark-Caya
