Smudging

Spiritlore

Smudging is the traditional Native American practice of using the smoke of burning herbs to cleanse the mind, body and spirit.

Today, it is generally used to break old patterns in one’s emotional sphere, thoughts and surroundings. If you have been experiencing low vibrations or conflict in your life it often leaves an imprint on you, or your environment. This can perpetuate negativity beyond the issues that brought it about. One way to dispel this kind of lingering energy is through smudging!

Today we smudge in a variety of different ways, to cleanse living spaces, objects and our own energy field. Smudging is very personal to the practitioner. There is no right or wrong way to do this – go with what you feel, and make it your own! The following examples are for general information.
