Sage Advice on How, and Why, to Smudge
With the new year around the corner, and constant messaging on our physiological need to cleanse our bodies, and refresh, why not look to cleaning out your home, office and mental space, with a smudge.
Ancient peoples from varied regions practised with sage. It was important to them to open space for positive energy, messages and guidance and to let the negative out.
Who can't use more of that in their life???
Smudging is using the smoke of a sage stick to clear out those pesky negative thoughts and emotions that often cause us to ruminate and hold us down. The interesting part, voxie discovered is the actual link of this smoke to clear out bacteria and pathogens.
The ritual is a good one, of patience and mindful movements.
You move through the corners of your home, office, space and mind and allow the smoke to connect with that yuck, attach, then go up and out. Be sure to open doors and windows to give it an exit pathway. It also gives us some time to take stock of what we are harbouring in those spaces and to let them go.
We at voxie want to wish you, the best you to start out your new year. We hope that taking stock of your hidden burdens and allowing them to dissipate, is one of the gifts you give yourself.
You deserve less yuck.
