CLEANSING RITUAL: SMUDGING FOR SERENITYblack-and-white-black-and-white-close-up-smoke-360976.jpg

ENERGY: YOU CAN’T ALWAYS SEE IT BUT SOMETIMES YOU CAN FEEL IT.

When energy stagnates, it collects like dust and can create feelings of heaviness and negativity. There are several ways to clear energy from a space such as putting salt in the corners of rooms, ringing bells or using sound, placing crystals around the room, burning incense and using sprays made with essential oils.

USING SAGE TO CLEANSE A SPACE IS PROBABLY THE MOST ANCIENT AND COMMON WAY OF CLEANSING ENERGY AND PEOPLE. THERE IS ALSO EVIDENCE THAT SAGE IS EFFECTIVE IN CLEARING AIRBORNE BACTERIA.

  • Choose a smudge stick made with sage, sweetgrass or other herbs. Have a heat resistant container on hand to hold the sage while you walk around the space. An abalone shell is often used for this purpose as it is heat resistant. Some people like to also like to use a feather to distribute the smoke throughout the room.

  • Before you begin, open up a window or door to give the energy you are clearing away a way to leave the space.

  • Set your intentions for what you wish to accomplish. You want to clear away old energy in order to make room for new and fresh energy to enter. Begin at the front door and move clockwise around the perimeter of the home. Let the smoke drift into corners and closets as energy can collect in these spaces. If you wish, you can say a prayer or chant while doing the ritual as this helps to focus your intention. When you arrive back at the front door, visualize the home filled with light. Speak your intentions again and close the ritual by putting out the smudge stick in a bowl of sand.

APPLE MAGIC

In keeping with the spirit of pagan practices, apples are often used as an offering to the Goddess. When cut horizontally, the seed cavity in apples reveals a pentacle which represents the elements of earth, fire, air, water as well as the energy of spirit. The ancient magic of apples can bring fortune, abundance and happiness.

  • Apples bring good luck if placed in a basket on the dining room table. They will help bring dreams to fruition.

  • Peel three apples and add the peels to your bath water. As you soak, think of love and forgiveness.

  • Keep the seeds of every apple you eat in a month. At the end of the month, count the seeds and this will show you the number of days you will have to wait for your luck to change.

  • Keep an apple on your desk and change it every seven days. It brings peace and understanding to what you do in your business.

  • Green apples placed with red apples open financial pathways.

  • If you want to attract love, sprinkle cinnamon on your apples.
