Sacred Space Cleansing Smudge: Sage, Chamomile and Copal
Our sacred space is what helps us get grounded. It helps us go within our thoughts and feelings to heal and grow. It also recharges our battery when we are feeling drained.
Smudging your sacred space is like receiving an energetic shower or a deep metaphysical cleansing. The smoke actually changes the ionic composition of the air, and can have a direct effect on reducing any negativity that has been left behind.
Smudging is ritual alchemy — changing and shifting the air element, and transforming our current experience to a mystical one.
The use of dried white sage is a Native Indigenous practice by ‘the people’. The shamans use it in their fires as a ritual of calling upon ancestral spirits. Conflict, anger, illness or evil is absorbed by the smoke and cleansed from the energy field of a person or space.
Tips: Put a chamomile bud, piece of copal and sage leave to begin your meditation smudge ritual. Focus on the smoke, the scent and the general visual of the herb burning on the coal. Put all of your positive intentions into it.
