What is Smudging?
Smudging is the burning of herbs to create a cleansing smoke bath, which is used to purify people, spaces and objects with intent to bring about/manifest a desired change in ones emotions, thoughts, surroundings and reality. When you add fire – it transforms itself from its physical state (the herb) to its energetic state (smoke). The smoke (energy) is able to interact with your emotions and thoughts (energy), transforming those emotions/thoughts that, no longer support your highest joy. Smudging shifts stagnant energy and cleanses; rather like taking a spiritual shower.
Purpose of Smudging:
Attracting positive energies to you.
Letting go of negative energies.
To create/enhance positive energy/sacred spaces for healing and manifestation.
