What is Smudging?
Throughout history, the burning of natural substances has been used for cleansing, healing and spiritual purposes.
Smudging is the burning of herbs with the intent to bring about or manifest a desired change in emotions, thoughts, surroundings and reality.

The Ancient Art of Smudging
To clear self or any space of negative energy, open a window in each room. Place smudge on heat-proof burning surface (a plate). Light 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 relight several times). As the smoke begins, use your hand to direct the smoke over your body from your feet up to your head, then back down again. Visualize the smoke taking with it any negative energy from your life, any darkness or malady. Next, begin to move clockwise through your space. Wave the smoke into all corners, across doorways and into shadow spaces. Feel free to speak aloud; your very own Poems, Prayers and Promises. Once the space is cleared, allow the bundle to either burn out or gently press it out in your heat-proof container.
