Purify Your Space
White Sage has long been used in meditation and cleansing, its smoke and ashes used to purify air, eliminate negative energy, and realign the ions in the air to promote a clean space, a strong aura, and a happy home.
It was Native Americans who started the tradition of using Sacred Sage to ward off evils spirits and negative energies, and white sage has been used in ceremonies to seek blessings of health and prosperity, banish spirits, and encourage protection for hundreds of years. Sacred sage can amplify any clearing and protective techniques that you are already using. As a plant, and a living being, sage has a Spirit. The Spirit of sage is dedicated to offering protection, blessings, and clearing.
Sage Smudging is a ritual where the leaves of the Sage plant are burned, and the smoke is directed into and onto areas that are in need of clearing and protection. The idea is that as the leaves are burned, and you speak express your gratitude for its assistance, the spirit of the sage plant releases it's energy of protection and clearing into the space, or onto and around the object that needs clearing. As the smoke moves through the room or over a surface, the smoke attaches itself to any heavy, negative energy that is within the space, object or being. As the smoke clears, the spirit of White Sage carries with it the negative energy that was once attached, back up to the Spiritual Light. This heavy energy then becomes released, so that it may regenerate into something positive.
You can perform this smudging ritual on anything or anyone that needs a clearing (if it is a living being, remember to ask permission!). You can use White Sage to help you clear a room, a building, or a property. White sage can assist you in releasing energies and thought forms from yourself or another that no longer serves you. You can ask Sage to assist you in cleansing unknown energies from a stone, or an object that you received as a gift!
