Smudging is one of the easiest and most popular ways to cleanse and clear energy. By burning sacred herbs or wood and allowing the smoke to move through whatever it is you are working to clear, you can unblock and release unwanted energies.
To smudge your home, office, or other space: start by lighting the sage and walking through your space in a clockwise fashion. Usually starting at the front door, set your intentions for the energy you are hoping to welcome (like abundance, success, peace, love, etc.) Mindfully release any unwanted energies that you feel may be lingering or stuck and visualize the space being filled with loving, abundant energy. Repeat this process through all the rooms in your space.
To smudge yourself: light your smudge bundle and direct the smoke so that it moves over your body. Starting at your feet, slowly work your way up to your head. As you do this take deep breaths and visualize the smoke cleansing and clearing all negative energy, feelings, thoughts, emotions, etc. Once you've made it to your head, work your way back down to your feet and repeat the process. As you work your way down visualize energy being released to the elements (air, fire, water, earth.)
