According to The Spruce, “Smudging is a symbolic exercise common to Feng Shui practice, many native American traditions, and alternative healing practices. It involves burning selected herbs or other materials in a manner that fills the home or other space with the fragrance of the smoke and is thought to clear negative energy.”
It may sound bizarre in the beginning but you will get used to it once you begin. Energies can affect the way we lead our lives and sometimes we are totally oblivious to its negative impact. Our souls become tired and it’s almost impossible to begin again. So when you think you need to make a fresh start or feel weighed down by negativity, do the following:
1. Incense For The Insight
We tend to hold stress in our posture, unclench your jaw, relax your shoulder and lower back, flex your muscles. You need to feel absolutely comfortable and light an incense stick of your choice. The aroma must not be too strong and should have a calming effect on you.
2. Meditation For The Mind
We never let our mind rest. All the time we spend overthinking things, analyzing and trying to find a way through life can take a toll on your mental health. Let go of all the pent up energy, just empty your mind and take deep breaths. You need to focus on your breathing and exhale the negative energy in you.
3. Intentions And Intuition
“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
You need to ask the Universe to come into your soul and guide you. Saying aloud your deep desires sends out a sign that you are ready finally. You need to be insightful and think what’s good for you in the long run. It’s not difficult, just trust your intuition.
4. Sage For The Soul
You need to light a white sage stick as it has healing properties. Not only does it cleanse your aura but also gives you power. Now, move it all around your body letting the sacred smoke resonate with your soul. White sage is symbolic of purity and light, it will fill you with hope. This is a rejuvenating ritual that can cleanse the body, soul and also the space you live in.
5. Acknowledging The Universe
You need to be grateful for the things you already have because at some point it’s what you really wanted. Positivity doesn’t come all of a sudden, you need to practice it. Count your blessings and the Universe will bestow things you deserve.
