Your environment influences your mood and how productive you will be that day. Many of us have multiple places we visit on a daily basis. A positive habit I have adopted throughout the years is smudging my bedroom, workspace, and home as often as I feel necessary. Smudge away the negative and dull energy in the sacred areas you frequently visit by using with dried white sage, and other dried herbs and woods. Removing energy that does not serve anymore and opening space for positive energetic vibrations influences your space. Smudging has many benefits. Improving the energy in the room making individuals feel motivated and have a clear mind to focus on what needs to get done. You can use any sage stick you want. You can buy sage sticks at your local crystal shop, some local businesses carry sage, or order online.
Once you have your sage, set one end of the sage on fire and gently blow out the flames so only smoking is being released from the stick. Carry a plate underneath your sage sit in case any pieces fall out and catch fire - I've burned my carpets before. Begin by making a clockwise motion with your hand. By setting your intention early on and visualize the smoke removing all energy that no longer serves you. Welcome new opportunities, abundance, and prosperity into your space. Before I turn off my sage after finishing smudging any room or space I turn the sage stick on me and give my body a quick scan to cleanse my energetic field. You can do this to any place in your home, work, car, etc. Be cautious when you have finishing smudging your environment and are turning off your sage stick. Open windows and doors when you are smudging indoors to allow the smoke to find a way out. Do this at the end or beginning of each month to refresh the energies surrounding you where you feel appropriate to smudge.
