Smudging

  • Easy Ways to Cleanse Your Home

    Your home is supposed to be a place where you feel relaxed, comfortable and safe. It is supposed to be your refuge from the world. But there are going to be times when negative energy gets to your home. Since negative energy is sticky, there’s a good chance that it will remain inside your home. When this happens, spending time at home will no longer be relaxing. Rather, it’s going to feel gloomy and stale. You may end up stressed and annoyed. Worse, it may cause anxiety and depression.

    Consider cleansing your home when someone with negative energy comes into your home, when you or any member of your family is constantly stressed, anxious or lonely or when your house starts to feel uncomfortable.

    There are several ways to cleanse your home from negative energy. Here are some of them.

    Smudging

    Smudging is the art of cleansing yourself, as well as your environment. The act of burning sacred herbs such as sage, sweetgrass, frankincense and cedar can clear away the negative or stagnant energy from your home and bring it back to a state of harmony, peace and balance.

    Smudging involves burning bundles of herb and allowing the smell to spread throughout your home.  Smudge removes anything unwanted including anger, fear, negative energy and even earthbound or lower spirits.

    Use crystals

    Negative energy enters your home through the windows and doors. As such, protecting your entrances is essential to prevent negative energy from entering your home. Crystals such as Black Tourmaline and Black Onyx are best to placed at entrances as they repel negative energy, keeping it away from your home.

    Gridding is also an effective way to cleanse your space. This involves placing crystals in certain rooms in your home to protect, cleanse and bring in positive energies. Clusters of celestite, apophyllite, amethyste and clear quartz will dissipate energy by sending it out in all directions. They can also keep your living space clear and vibrant.

    Salt

    Salt crystals have an amazing ability to absorb negative energy. Pour salt in every corner of your home and leave it for 48 hours. Sweep and vacuum the salt after 48 hours. The salt will absorb the negative energy in your home or from the people who are sick or fighting.

    Another option is to mix a few tablespoons of salt with water and then pour it into a spray bottle. Spray the solution into the door, floor and walls. Do this in every room in your home to room to effectively cleanse and protect the room.

  • 4 Ways Empaths Can Protect Themselves

    Empaths are highly sensitive. Because of their high sensitivity, they are affected by people’s energies. When they are in close proximity to someone who feels down, they suddenly feel down too. They also feel the pain, anxiety and anger of the person next to them and are overwhelmed by the heaviness of these emotions.

    If you are an empath, then you know how it feels. Sometimes, it becomes so overwhelming that you just want to stop feeling the energy coming from every direction. How do you shield yourself from being bombarded by emotions, pain and energy of the people around you?

    Here are 4 ways empaths can protect themselves:

    Recognize that you are an empath

    Have you ever been accused of being too sensitive? Have you ever felt so moved by something that you started to cry? Have you had a conversation with a stranger and know that the person is sad or anxious, even without them saying a word?  If any of these rings true for you, you may be an empath.

    When you get a better understanding of your true nature, it would be easier for you to recognize that the emotions you are feeling may not be yours, but from those around you.

    Set boundaries with others

    As wonderful as it is to be connected with people, it becomes troublesome when everyone else’s problems and emotions seep in and influence your behavior, habits and decisions. As an empath, it is important to maintain healthy boundaries.

    Smudging  

    Similar to taking a shower to wash off dirt and sweat, you also need to cleanse the negative energy that you have picked up. Smudge yourself regularly to clear your energy and release other people’s energy from your body. Sweetgrass, lavender, cedar and sage can be used for smudging. Make sure that you like the smell of the smudge. Otherwise, it can make you feel nauseous or heady.

    Use crystals

    Empaths can use crystals to ease the emotional and energetic burdens in their lives. They can also soak up your stresses and provide you with some amplified energy you need.

    Labradorite helps by preventing you from absorbing the issues that are being shared with you. Malachite will absorb all those negative feelings and emotions you may have absorbed. Meanwhile, Rose Quartz will give you unconditional love if you’re feeling down or heartbroken.

  • Clear Your Energy and Cleanse Your Home with Sage Smudging Ritual

    Clear Your Energy and Cleanse Your Home with Sage Smudging Ritual A lot of people who are foreign to the art of burning sage think that this is done to make the home smell nice. Clearly, those who thought so have never smelled burning sage before.

    Dried ceremonial sage carries an aromatic, pungent scent when burned. Lots of people dislike its smell. Some would say it smells like weed. But the truth is that sage exudes a therapeutic aroma, which can increase relaxation and aid in deeper meditation.

    The art of smudging

    The process of burning sage is called smudging. Humans have used sage for its cleansing properties. Smudging ceremonies have been around for centuries and is considered as one of the purest, oldest methods of cleansing a person or a group of person. It is a means of dispelling the mind and spirit of negative energies. It also helps change the energy when you’re depressed, unwell or angry.

    It is not just people who are smudged. It was believed that even objects and spaces have a spirit, and are often smudged to invite peace and harmony to your home or office.

    The effectiveness of this theory is based on the theory that smoke is a purifying agent. In this ritual, sage stick is lighted, letting smoke float around the house. The smoke is directed onto areas that are in need of protection and clearing. The smoke clears the space by attaching to negative energies that are present in the space. Negative energy is released as the smoke clears.

    Smudging is also a great way to cleanse your mind, body and aura. You can either do this on your own or ask a friend to help you perform the ritual. Light the smudge stick and motion the smoke around your body. Start from your head, and then down your chest, arms, back and legs. Don’t forget to set your intention before you begin with the ritual.
