How to do a Smudging Ritual
How to smudge is different for each person and does not have to be complicated as long as you remember intention is the essential aspect of your ceremony. Simply light your sage or Palo Santo while holding a bowl or shell underneath to catch ashes or embers. Blow on your stick or bundle; you may use a feather if desired. Say a prayer or mantra, or just hold the intention while smudging. Be sure to open a window or door to let out any stale or negative energy. Then relax, meditate, or simply enjoy the smoke’s magical properties.
