Smudging & Cleansing Yourself / Your Space

Here at Crystal Harmony UK we have literally become obsessed with cleansing and smudging!!! We love the idea that we can change the energy around us and immediately feel better! We have just had the new smudging kits arrive which are absolutely gorgeous and we cant wait for you all to get involved! Please send us in your smudging selfies and experiences!!! And just in case your not sure where on earth to start or what to do ... here is a handy guide for you:

ย 

๐Ÿ’ญThe use of dried white sage and burning herbs is a 2,000 year old Indigenous American practice.
๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸผSmudging your sacred space, your home or office, or even your body with sage is like taking an energetic shower, or doing a deep metaphysical cleansing. ๐Ÿ’จThe smoke from dried sage actually changes the ionic composition of the air, and can have a direct effect on reducing our stress response.
๐ŸŒฟWhen should I smudge?
โ€ขWhen you move into a new living space
โ€ข...When you begin a new job or start your own business
โ€ขBefore / after a guest enters your home
โ€ขBefore / after a yoga or healing session
โ€ขBefore meditation
โ€ขAfter an argument or any illness
โ€ขUpon returning home from crowded situations
๐Ÿ’จHow do a smudge & cleanse my space / myself?
Place your sage or cedar into your lovely Abolone Shell (a traditional vessel used by Indigenous American people that represents the element of water), light the 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 re-light the bundle a few times during the ritual process. With the loose Sweetgrass, use your charcoal burning disk (or part of it) inside your shell to set it alight.
Once you have a nice smoke going, use your wafting feather to direct the smoke over your body from your feet up to your head, then back down again. As you do this, visualize the smoke taking away with it any negative energy from your life.
๐ŸŒฌ๐ŸŽ‹You may even like to say words out loud such as; "Air, fire, water, earth. Cleanse, dismiss, dispel." Or โ€œI dispel all negativity from my being / my space and replace only with positive thingsโ€ (or whatever resonates with you!)
๐Ÿ™๐ŸผOnce you have smudged your body, begin to move through your space. Wave the smoke into all corners, across doorways and into shadow spaces. To maintain the atmosphere of ritual, keep repeating your words in your mind as you diffuse the smoke.
๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸผOnce the space is cleared, allow the sage or cedar bundle to either burn out or gently press it out in your shell. ๐ŸšYou can even bury the remaining smudge in your garden to really feel the completeness of the cleansing ritual. Once buried, the smudging has done its work in completing the cycle. Ideally, you should try to use a new smudge for each cleansing.๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผโ™ฅ๏ธ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ’จ๐ŸŽ‹๐Ÿ’ญ๐ŸŒฌ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒฌ๐ŸŒฌ๐ŸŒฌ๐ŸŒฌ๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŽ‹๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿš๐Ÿš
