HOW TO SMUDGE

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

Cautions
-Make sure the area you are smudging is well ventilated.
-Do not use near people with respiratory problems such as asthma, or pregnant women.
-Never leave burning smudge unattended.
-Place some sand or salt in the bottom of the container to provide insulation otherwise the container could burn the surface it is placed upon.

Preparations
- Clean the area to be smudged. Remove unnecessary clutter that creates energy blockages. Vacuum and dust if possible.

BEGIN SMUDGING

Focus on your intent
Any action undertaken with intention and belief can become a potent ritual. Consider your intention before you smudge and hold it clearly in your mind. A candle flame is recommended to light the smudge stick as it may take a little time to get the herbs smoking (about 60sec). Once the tip of the smudge stick is glowing red, put it out so that the herb is smouldering, not burning. Use a feather to stoke the smudge stick. Allow the smudge herbs to smoulder, freeing the smoke to circle in the air.

Smudging yourself
There is no one right way to smudge. Many cultures have their own particular way of smudging. As long as there is intent and the smoke touches all parts of your auric field. Fan the swirls of smoke around your body from head to toe with a feather. You may want to especially focus on chakra areas where you feel there are blockages or where there has been physical, emotional or mental pain. Visualise the smoke lifting away all the negative thoughts, emotions and energies that have attached themselves to you. If you are feeling depressed for instance you could visualise the smoke carrying away all your feelings of depression.

Smudging another
It is often appropriate to smudge guests as they enter the space at a ritual, ceremony or special event. Smudge others as if you were smudging yourself, fanning the smoke all over their body while holding intent to cleanse and clear their energy field.

During healing work
During healing work, the smoke may be fanned over the person with a feather. This clears out stuck energies, which allows for a more powerful treatment and a quicker recovery time for the patient. You may also direct smudge to each of the person's chakras and as you do so visualise each chakra coming into balance as the smudge purifies it. If you can see auras, look for discoloured places in the aura and direct the healing smoke towards those places on the patient's body. It is highly recommended that you smudge yourself and your treatment room both before and after a treatment to maintain an energetically clean and clear space and to avoid energetic cross contamination of your patients and yourself.

Smudging a House, Office or Healing space
For cleansing any space it is recommended that you create an altar for the space clearing. On the altar, place flowers, a candle and a crystal. Write out a list of what you want to let go of or transform in your space/reality and one list of what you want to manifest or attract to your space/reality. Read out the list of what you want to let go of/transform and then burn that list. This signifies to the Universe that you want to transform/let go. Next read the list of what you want to manifest in your life.

Smudge yourself first because you are the person that is going to smudge the space so it’s best if you are cantered and balanced before you start with the space clearing. Light the smudge and walk about the perimeter, giving special attention to the corners, places behind doors and any place or object where you intuitively feel drawn to where energy feels negative. You can also fan the smoke throughout the room with a  feather. Repeat the list of your manifestation intents either out loud, or in your mind as you smudge. Once you have finished smudging the space, smudge yourself a final time.

Cleansing objects
Hold the objects to be purified in the smoke, or fan the smoke over them.

Extinguishing the smudge
Have a fireproof container such as a shell, glass or ceramic dish ready to put the smudge out in when you've finished. Always make sure that a smouldering smudge stick is out before leaving the room.

How often should I smudge?
Whenever you feel your emotions or thoughts are affecting your reality in a negative way or the energy in your personal living, healing or office space feels stuck/stagnant. You can smudge once a day if you like, and is recommended daily for health and energetic healing practitioners to maintain/enhance your energy field, healing space or personal living space.
