I love smudging, I have been smudging for many years. I use sage smudging to purify my home because I love the scent of the sage smoke and because smudging makes me feel balanced and calm. Even after a quick few minute smudging, I feel that the energy in my home is completely purified.
Some people avoid using smudging because they find it too complex and difficult, but the truth is you do not have to perform an elaborate ritual every time you want to smudge. Once you know the basic steps you can make it quick and simple. Smudging with spiritual herbs purifies the energies, this is the main benefit of this practice.
Smudging Used for Healing From Ancient Times
Native Americans, shamans, and healers from various cultures used smudging for purifying, balancing and healing purposes. According to some spiritual traditions, diseases have their origin in the spiritual body.
Smudging rituals were performed to purify the human being on all levels, including the physical and spiritual level and the benefits of smudging varied depending on what herbs or what combination of herbs were used by the shaman or the healer.
Most energy healers recommend to start the smudging at your crown chakra and move the smudging stick or bundle down on your body all the way to your feet to purify all your chakras. Smudging can be performed as an everyday ritual or used in times of sickness to cleanse and purify the environment. The most common plants and resins used now for smudging were used for thousands of years in different cultures for religious and healing purposes. These plants include the Garden Sage, White Sage, Palo Santo, Cedar, Lavender, Sweet-grass.
