Smudging – A Ritual To Cleanse & Purify

Many of us appreciate the benefits of a soothing calming salt bath or a vigorous shower to cleanse and refresh our body when we’ve had a long hard day. Equally as effective but on the psychic and emotional energetic level is the practice of ‘smudging’. ‘Smudging’ is the common name given to the ‘Sacred Smoke Bowl Blessing’, a powerful cleansing technique with its origins dating back to some of the first Native American ceremonial traditions. However, my researching abilities proved to be not enough when I tried to find information on when the first Native Indians used it as part of a sacred ceremonial ritual, nor was I able to find specifics as to the tribes that used it. But I can tell you… there were several types of herbs used for blessing, purifying, healing and removing evil spirits, such as white sage, cedar, lavender, and even tabacco was used – all though tobacco is no longer used for sacred rituals or ceremonial smudging any longer as they have found it releases chemicals that have been found to be toxic. Even though I was unable to find an exact date, I was able to determine that the ritual of smudging has been around for a very long time, with its ceremonial traditions and rituals dating back many centuries.

Historically, documentation has shown that several other religous and spiritual groups also burned herbs, such as white sage, frankenscense, and myrhh as an important part of their ceremonial blessings, and prayers. There was a commonality to the rituals and ceremonies used by the Native Americans and other religious and spiritual groups, it was that this ritual was based on the idea of spiritually cleansing, healing and warding off evil or malvolent spirits. White sage was, and still is used as a medicinal herb for many.

In more recent times (new age times), smudging has continued to be used for prayer, weddings, funerals, christian/catholic masses, and for cleansing and purifying and of course warding off bad luck and evil spirits…so really not that much has changed over the years. What has changed noticeably is the use of it by individuals, smudging has become extremely popular in Metaphysical areas, Spiritualism, Shaman’s, Yogi’s, Reiki and Qigong Masters, Mediums and Psychics, (myself included) and likely your neighbor down the street. Why? Likely because people have realized that anyone that chooses to do smudging, can. It still remains to be an effective and powerful tool to balance, cleanse and restore positive energy for individuals, places, homes, offices, churches, etc. What I did find interesting while doing my research was that the burning of sage and specific herbs has been and is considered against the law in some areas and states. Whether those laws are enforceable I do not know, but as with any thing….use common sense. I think it’s safe to say that we are all aware of one “herb” that is illegal to possess, let alone burn, …just saying!

The Religious & Spritual Nature of Smudging ~ Religious or Not?  For anyone who might be “poo-pooing” the “religious” connotation or inference of a smudging and blessing, please note that even though many religious and spiritual people do this for an overall sense of well-being and to boost their ability to connect to their higher power, it technically does not have to be a religious ritual, it only becomes “religious” when we add a prayer or a religious blessings to accompany the process.  It is completely up to you, the individual. I bring this up, because I have come across some nay-sayers who take the stance that to practice smudging, you are “praying” to nature, or asking nature to protect you from evil spirits, that it is similar to asking a stick to protect you from an evil spirit, that instead we should be asking God to protect us from an evil spirit.

I need to say that for me, smudging is a sacred ritual of removing negative energy from a person, place, or thing, and it is the “sacred” that I connect with. There is a knowing – that for many centuries, and for many individuals, regardless of their religious background, it has been used for the sake of clearing negative energy, and has always been used this particular way. As a ritual it has been handed down from generation to generation, not because a “ruler or leader” said it was so, but because many different types of people with many different types of beliefs have all used the smudging of herbs as a way to cleanse, heal and protect themselves, their families, friends, and communities. Basically ~ that holds a lot of historical weight as far as I am concerned.

Who To Call On For Assistance ~  When I perform a smudging and blessings, I call on my Creator (or God), my Angels and my Spirit Guides to help me, I thank my spiritual companions, and as I’m thanking them for their help I am also spreading the smoke throughout a room or area, I am asking them to assist me in the “rounding up” if you will, of whatever energies do not belong there, my belief (which is based on the same belief of our Native Americans and Shamans) is that the sage’s smoke has the ability to stick to whatever heavy or lower vibrational energies may be in a room, and as you smudge each room, the smoke grabs and carries with it this “yuck energy” and out the open window or open door it goes.

I believe in praying to God and asking him for his help in removing whatever negativity may be in my “zone”, the smudging is part of the prayer or ritual as is asking my Creator, Angels and Guides to assist me. I also say a prayer of gratitude when I am done. But this is my way, it doesnt mean that it has to be your way, it has to be what feels intuitively right for you.  If you dont believe in Angels, you aren’t likely going to call on them to help you. What’s important is that you set an intent, and you follow through with it while you are doing the smudging. Its important that you do what feels right for you, if you are Native American, you may want to call in the four elements, air, earth, water, and fire. Call on an Animal Guide, it’s really up to you. And lastly, one of the most important steps, is to thank your spirit helpers, whether its God, Angels, or Guides…always show your gratitude!

Can You Feel the Shift?   Maybe not everyone can say this, but I can physically, emotionally and mentally feel a shift in the energy, there is a tangible “lightness and airy” feeling that replaces the energy that was there prior to the smudging. When my house starts to feel “stuffy”, and I start to notice my family, especially my hubby, getting a little cranky, or the house starts to feel crowed, I know it is time to smudge!!! Over the past twenty some years, I have had amazing things happen when I have done smudgings, there have been moments when I experienced financial issues or worries over something substantial that needed to be paid, when a bill ended up being more than what the estimate was, or when times are tight, and the dog gets sick and you end up having to pay a unexpected vet bill…and smudging with the intent to remove negative energies around money and finances has literally turned things around, an hour later the mailman shows up with an unexpected check in the mail, a refund in the same amount because somehow a medical bill was overpaid, or one of my kids went on a job interview and came home feeling like they had blown the interview…I smudged the house, and their room, and shortly after an email came through telling them the job was theirs! The list goes on, but you get the idea.

So for me, and for hundreds of others I know, smudging works, it doesn’t make promises, it doesn’t pretend to be something its not…it is what it is, a tool that a person can use to help remove lower and negative energies from their own energy or the energy in the home, office, or whatever.  It lifts the negativity and replaces it with positive energy, energy that is breathable that doesnt way you down, it makes you feel happy and helps remove sadness, greif, fear and anger to name a few.

Even though I am a spiritual person, I was dragged kicking and screaming to church as a child, I am not a particularly “religious” person as I do not believe that one religion in itself could completely umbrella all of my beliefs, or that there separate Gods, I believe there is one God who goes by many names, and gives people permission to have separate religions, however you want to look at it ~ I do believe in a higher power, and I personally choose to use the name “God” or “Creator” as my term for that higher power.

There is a difference between performing a religous ritual, right, or act, and performing a spiritual ritual or a blessing calling on a higher power.  One does not need to belong to a church or a religous sector to perform a smudging or a blessing. All that is needed is your intent, a smudge stick, a non-flamable bowl and your desire to rid yourself or your space of whatever energy that does not belong there.

The bottom line is this, it is a ritual way to cleanse a person, place or an object of negative energies or influences. The theory behind smudging is that the smoke attaches itself to negative energy and as it clears it takes the negative energy with it, releasing it into another space to be regenerated, or as some believe, the smoke attaches to the energy and it carries it to the heavens for transmutation.

Regardless if you see it as a ceremonial ritual, as a part of a religious right, or a ritual to cleanse yourself and your home of unwanted energies, it is very effective in doing just that! I personally see myself as being a spiritual person, not a religious person, and I find that smudging myself and my home helps to keep me grounded, clears my head and helps me to keep my emotions in check. I speak to Spirit, its what I do, and its who I am, I dont know why I can and others cant…but for me smudging is part of the job! It allows me to clear away the unwanted energies and allows me to focus and speak to the Spirit Energies that I need to, it allows them a safe place to share their message and allows me to pass that message along to their loved ones here on this planet.  When I am done giving a Mediumship Reading, I smudge to clear all energies from myself and my home, or space, where ever I have done the reading, cause no one wants a Spirit hanging out causing trouble! Smudging, it is my way of letting Spirit know I’m ready to work, and it also lets Spirit know when I’m done and its time for them to return home.

Emotions Can Be Sticky ~ Smudging is very effective when you’ve been feeling depressed, angry, resentful or unwell or after you have had an argument with someone. It is also great to smudge yourself, the space and all the guests or participants before a ritual or ceremony or celebration. You can smudge your home or work space as part of a general spiritual housecleaning and you can cleanse crystals or other objects of any negative energy with a smudging ritual as well.  I am a firm believer that any furniture, new and especially used, for you antique lovers out there….smudge smudge smudge!!!

Herbs used for Smudging
There are many ways to smudge and a variety of different herbs may be used. When the herbs used for smudging are tied into a bundle and allowed to dry they are called a “smudge stick”. In traditional societies the herbs used for smudging are considered sacred and the smudge stick is treated with great respect. The particular plant allies that are my favorite to use…and I call on for my smudge sticks are White Mountain Sage, Mugwort and Lavender. The Mugwort stimulates psychic awareness and acts as a strong cleanser of negative energies, while the Lavender restores balance, creates a peaceful atmosphere and attracts loving energy. The White Sage has been used for centuries in many different religious and spiritual groups, such as the Native American Indians, Spiritualists, Pagans and even Catholics have been known to burn sage to clear energies. Smudge sticks can be purchased at your local health food stores, in my little town, the hot spot is Oliver’s Market, Whole Foods, and the local smoke shop sometimes has a bundle or two…and most, or many crystal and new age shops carry them also. You can make your own, using dried sage, bundle a few sage branches (small) together of the same length, about 6 to 12 inches long, it’s up to you how long you want the sage to burn and is a good indication of how much sage to use in your bundle. Wrap with thin cotton thread or twine. Do not use any string that has plastic or rubber as it will melt and catch fire. Lets us not forget that the burning of plastic substances not only hurts the environment, but can also be toxic if breathed in.  You only want the smudge stick to burn at the beginning and then allow it to smolder and smoke. If there are flames, be sure to blow them out carefully.

You can also use just sage that is dried and not wrapped in a stick, by using a bowl filled with sand, place the stems of 5 or 6 pieces of sage in the sand, sage leaves that have a bit of a stem or branch at the end are best as you can anchor them into the sand, and when they are smoldering the embers are less likely to fly away. I recommend using a feather or your hand to wave the smoke to where you want it to go when using this technique.

How to Smudge
Any action, undertaken with intention and belief can become a potent ritual so consider your intention before you smudge and hold it clearly in your mind. You may wish to invite the spirit of the herbs to join you and guide and assist with your intention. I invite my Spirit Guides, Master Guide, a few of the Ascended Masters that I work with and my guardian angel to assist me when smudging.  There presence allows me the ability to sense what areas may need special attention, or when I am clearing/smudging a clients home, they help in protecting me and removing the negative energies along to the light, if needed.

UhOh ~ Did I Mess Up?   Remember God and your spirit guides understand what you are trying to do, so always remember THERE IS NO WRONG WAY to do it! (God doesn’t care if you believe in him or not, but I recommend using his name or your name of choosing for your higher-power when doing your clearing and blessing because it helps make the process more powerful, as well as giving it more strength, it’s setting your intention firmly in the ethers.   The ability to truly remove negative energies when smudging is to always remember that you have your “spiritual allies” protecting you and that you can stand in your own power and truth and be strong enough to get the job done.  The most common question I get, “I dont know if I can do it, do you think I am strong enough to clear the energies?” My answer is this, “ABSOLUTELY YES! Especially if you believe it in your heart.” You see it is being able to stand in your own power, to be your authentic self, to shake off the doubts and demand that your space is your space and anything else that is in that space just doesnt belong HAS GOT TO GO!  You just need to tell it so and it will be so.

Lighting A Smudge Stick Or Herb and How To Work With the Smoke  ~ A candle flame is recommended to light the smudge stick as it may take a little time to get the stick smoking. Once there’s a flame blow it out gently so that the smudge stick is not flaming but is still smoldering, not burning is the key, a slow smolder is what youre going for. Blow gently or wave the flame with your hand to put out the flame. Allow the smudge stick to smolder, freeing the smoke to circle in the air. Once your smudge stick has a good smolder, and their is a decent amount of smoke coming from the top of the smudge stick, you are ready to start smudging!

When fanning the smoke around you, another person, or around the home or area, you will have the smudge stick in your prominent hand, so if youre right handed, hold it in your right hand, I recommend having your nonflamable bowl in the other hand. Your bowl or abolone shell should be fiiled with sand or some type of substance that you can allow the burning embers or ashes to fall into safely. Sand, River Rock, pepples, dirt…it all works. I personally use an old abalone shell filled with sand that I had from when I was a child, my uncle was a fisherman in the bay, and he would often catch abalone for us, I loved seeing all of the beautiful shells with their bright translucent and pearl like reflections. My mother had our yard outlined with them. When we moved, she gave many away, but I managed to keep a few, funny I never in a million years would have been able to tell why I wanted to keep them but knew I would use them at some point in my future, and that they would be an important part in “something” – I just wasnt sure what at that time.

When I do a smudging, I believe in trying to balance my tools with each one of the sacred elements. The abalone shell represents water. The sand represents earth. The smoke from the smudge stick represents Air, and the fire and burning/smoldering sage represents of course fire!  I recommend using a fan, I made mine, it is made from different feathers that I have found or have been given to me as gifts.

Fanning the Smoke ~ I carefully tied all of my feathers together, spreading them out like a fan, I tied them with cotton string, and embellished the tie with crystals and gems.  You do not want your feathers tied to closely together as they will not work well for fanning the smoke. Another options, if you like being creative, My daughter and I made “smudging fans” a few years ago, all it takes is a piece of brown paper bag cut into the shape of a half circle, and glue it to a popsicle stick. You or your child can decorate it any way you like, you can even make your fan and decorate it as part of the cleansing process, embellishing it with items that may hold significant meaning to you would definitely be appropriate, and fun!  Being creative is also a good way of clearing negative (inner) energy and opening up your clairvoyant and clairsentient abilities.

Smudging yourself
Begin by circling the smudge stick around you slowly, from head to toe. Fan the swirls of smoke around your body from head to toe, You may want to especially focus on areas where you feel there are blockages or where there has been or is physical, emotional, or psychic pain. Imagine the smoke lifting away all the negative thoughts, emotions and energies that have attached themselves to you.  If you are feeling depressed for instance you could visualize the smoke carrying  away all your feelings of depression.

Smudging another Person
It is often appropriate to smudge guests as they enter the space at a ritual, ceremony  or special event. Smudge as if you were smudging yourself, fanning the smoke all over their body. You may want to speak an intention or a suggestion for the smudging as you do it. For instance “Allow the sacred smoke to cleanse your body  and spirit and bring you present and available into this moment”

Smudging a room or space
Light the smudge stick and walk about the perimeter, giving special attention to the corners and the places behind doors. You can also fan the smoke throughout the room with a large feather.

During healing work
During healing work, the smoke may be fanned over the person either by your hand or with feathers. This clears out unhealthy energies and brings in the special attributes of the herbs. You may also direct smudge to each of the person’s chakras and as you do so visualize each chakra coming into balance as it is purified by the smudge.

Cleansing crystals or other objects
Hold the objects to be purified in the smoke or fan the smoke over them. If you are clearing your crystals prior to programming them thank both them and the smudge stick for helping you to realize your goals.

Extinguishing the smudge stick
Have ready a fireproof receptacle such as a shell or a glass or ceramic dish to put the smudge stick in when you’ve finished.  It’s ideal to damp the stick out in sand, or  earth or you can just press it against the bottom of the receptacle. Always make sure that a smudge stick is out before leaving the room where you keep it.

As I said before, I use an abalone shell with sand in the bottom and carry with me as I’m smudging a house.  If there are embers or ashes they can easily be put into the sand to be extinguished. When you are done, gently snuff out the sage stick into the sand until it is no longer smoking.   Let cool before placing away or in an area that may catch fire. Never place your sage  stick, or your bowl that you have used for smudging under the bed or in a cabinet were it  can easily re-ignite and catch fire. Safety first!

General Information on Smudging
We can smudge to clear and ground ourselves and our intentions before and after healing, initiation and ritual. The smoke will help purify our crystals and other sacred objects. We can clear rooms and create sacred space. The herbs can also be burned to give thanks and to aid us in our prayers.

There are many ways to actually smudge.
One ancient way is to start by drawing on the power of the seven elements, by burning your smudging herbs in a shell. An abalone shell represents Water and the flowing and filling power this element offers us. The sacred herb is a gift of Earth and represents her creativity and strength. When we light the herb we are invoking the transmute element of Fire and the smoke that rises represents Air, carrying and
releasing our cleared intentions and prayers. Through our deliberate action, we ourselves bring the fifth, sixth and seventh element: ether or life energy, the space above us represents the heavens or the afterlife energy and the area beneath and around our feet represents earth energy.

Next we offer the smoke to the seven directions (i use the smudge stick to gently wave the figure 8, or the shape of the infinity symbol in each direction, you may also use a Reiki symbol, a heart symbol, a cross, whatever symbol feels intuitively correct for you is the best): east, south, west, north, up, down and center. Returning to center we are now ready to purify ourselves. Start by holding the shell in front of
you and gently fan the smoke up to your heart. Pass the shell up along the center of your body, encircling your head. Be aware of how you feel through out this process.  Are there places that you feel a desire to clear and honor? It is important to follow our own inner guidance.

Passing them through the smoke, in a spiraling or a figure eight motion can clear Crystals and other sacred objects. Both are sacred symbolic movements: a spiral represents an ever expanding and focusing energy; a figure eight on its side is the symbol of infinity.

Sacred spaces are created by passing the smoke around the perimeter of the room, moving sunwise: east, south, west, and north.

As with all things this is only one of the ways. Trust your inner feelings and allow yourself to create what is sacred and meaningful to you. Explore and have fun!

Ready? Here’s the prayer~~~~

Before a Smudging ~
Call my “crazy” but I have always felt that it is energetically a good idea to do a quick
cleaning of the house before a smudging. Nothing major, but a quick sweep of the
floors, or a quick vacuuming of carpets, something that will show the intent that you
are in the process of “cleansing the energy” of the room or home.

This is the Prayer for Cleansing & Protection that I use ~

I have found that when doing a house clearing, lighting a white candle prior to
saging/smudging helps to increase the vibration of the prayer/blessings and will
also help any spirit energies that are stuck go to the light and cross over more easily.

~ Light a White Candle

Take this opportunity to center and ground yourself. As you light the candle use this
time to begin to focus on the work to be done in the Clearing process.

~ Read the following aloud at the Front Door of your home
Once the sage stick/bundle has been lit and begins to smolder. [The items that are in
parenthesis ( ) are places in which you can change the name or sentence of the
blessing, if you are uncomfortable saying any part of the blessing, then it is your
choice to leave it out, you can also add to it if you feel there is a need to expand on it,
do what feels right to you! This is your blessing and it has to fit your personality,
your beliefs, and your strength….] Stand at the doorway and begin by calling on your
spirit guides and angels, and your Creator. After you read the first part of the
blessing, you will begin smudging the rest of the rooms going clockwise.

~Next, say the following while still at the front doorway/entrance
“Mother/Father God, (our Creator) (you may use your choice of diety or your
choice of name for the higher power you believe in – God, Jesus, Buddha, The
Creator, The All That Is, ) I ask for your Divine protection for me (and my family). I
ask that we (I) be placed in the flask of the golden light of God’s (The Creators) grace
and that it be filled with the Christ’s (The Creator’s) Divine White Light. I ask that
this dwelling be surrounded in the golden dome of God’s (Creator’s) grace
connecting to the golden shield beneath the foundation, and filled with the Christ’s
(Creator’s) Divine White Light.
I come in love and light to my Higher Self, Archangel Michael and my
Guardian Angels, and ask for guidance during this Clearance process. I ask that only
the Truth shall come through. I give my Higher Self permission to access
information from wherever it must come. I command that all lines of
communication be cloaked. “(You are providing an energetic force field around the
lines of communication to provide invisibility and maximum protection from any
negative interference that may attempt to interrupt the Clearing process.)

~ Now begin smudging the first room, that is connected or is closest to the front
door with the smoldering sage, begin at the front door, move clockwise until you
circle the room and return back to the door. Make sure to do corners, cuboards,
under tables, etc.

~ You should now be back at the front door, Now (imagine/visualize) surround
yourself with God’s White Light, the Christ Consciousness, and Love. (You can
visualize this, feel this, imagine this, “know this”, it is more important to have the
knowing or feeling that you are surrounded than it is to “see” it.
You will now bein smudging the remainder of the house.

~ Go from room to room and Speak the following aloud:

(The Lord’s Prayer does not have to be spoken, it can be done silently to yourself, if
you do not feel comfortable using this then don’t. Just remember, You can say
“God”, “Jesus”, etc., whether you are christian or not and whether you believe or not,
God doesnt care, but I believe regardless, by sighting and saying the blessings, you
are only strengthening your ability and allowing for more energy to be cleansed.)

• The Lord’s Prayer (Say this only once at the entrance of each room)
“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be
done, On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us
our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.”

• (Say this only once at the entrace of each room)
I command the removal of all energies or entities, negative or otherwise, in all
forms and any negative influences of any type. In the name of God [The Creator,
Father/Mother God, Jesus, your choice of Diety or the name of your Higher
Power], I release this home from any negative, unconstructive energies, or
inappropriate thought forms previously imprinted on it from any source. All
things negative must go away, I ask that you go to the light for transmutation,
Only positive energy and love may stay. All negativity go away, only positive
energy and love may stay!”

• As you go around each room, after you say the first part of the blessing at the
entrace of the room, decree with one breath: “Light, Light, Light” (three times), keep
saying this as you go around the room. When you enter the next room, say the
beginning of the blessing (above) then do as before, go around the room and decree
with one breath “Light, Light, Light!”

When you are done saging the house, I recommend doing the Garage, or any space
that is attached to the home even if you are not using it as a living space.

When you are done smudging the house/garage, return to the front door that you
started at.
And state Aloud:

“I align with my Higher Self as I call forth:
• My Guides and Angels
• My I am Presence
• Beloved Legions of light
• Archangel Michael
• Archangel Raphael
• Archangel Gabriel
• The Elemental Kingdom
• The Ancestors and Guardians of this property and home”
(• Feel free to call upon any other angels, archangels, ascended masters, Jesus,
Mother Mary, angelic or elementals that you call upon or believe in. )

You are almost done….

~ Set Intentions:
“I set my intention to work in harmony with the Beings of Light, My Creator,
The All That Is, Archangels, My Guardian Angels,, Nature Spirits, Mother Earth, and
the other energies assisting me today for the highest and greatest good for all
concerned. My intention is to bring balance and peace and harmony to this home
and property and to all of us living here. I give love, thanks, and gratitude for all
those I have summoned for the Clearing and Blessing of my home, I ask that my
home continue to be protected from any and all energies, negative, or unseen and
that they not be allowed to enter into this space, my home, or my own energy field.
May only positive energy and love be allowed to enter my home. I ask that any spirit
lost, unseen or not of my own calling, be sent to the White Light of Divinity for their
safe return home, or for transmutation. And So It Is.”

Lastly, sprinkle sea salt, or black salt at the entrances of your home, this will help
keep any negative enrergies from entering your home.

I recommend doing a smudging everyday for a week, or atleast everyother day for
the first week when clearing an energy of negative or dark energies or entities. Then
once a week thereafter. After three months, you should smudge once a month to
maintain the energy flow, but definitely do it more often or as needed if you feel
depressed, or the energy in your home feels heavy.

Reminders and Other fun stuff to know about spirit and angels~~~~~~

It’s important to remember that this is YOUR home, and it’s important to
remember that you should have the final say. Asking your angels to help to do a
cleansing is really more about creating a positive flow of energy between you and
the light beings that surround you and your family, it’s about giving them respect,
and to create a positive flow of energy and abundance toward the dwelling. For the
best results, call on/Invoke Archangel Michael, and ask him to remove, protect and
surround your home from anything negative or dark.

Other things you can do when clearing and blessings a home

~ Encircle The Clearing Area and State the following aloud:
“Please encircle this home with the White light of Divinity and permeate this
circle and everything in it with unconditional love and the highest level of cleansing
energy and increase it as needed and appropriate throughout this Clearing process.
Please make this circle bigger than the area involved.”

~ Visualize or imagine a Violet Fire blazing over the home and property area. This
only needs to be done the first time you do a Clearing on this home.

~ Ask the Archangels to radiate love into your home and environment. You can
assist by imagining every room filling with a glorious pink mist, which represents
Divine Love. Now request that a Being of Light from the Clearing team, or any other
Master, walk through and touch the wall of each room to bless it. Smudging & Blessings

~ Ask that a guardian angel be placed over the home and property and that it
stream love down to envelop the entire area. At this time you may request that the
guardian angel be given a symbol to assist with the anchoring of the love energy.
This symbol could be a heart, a blue cross, or anything else you desire.

~ Ask for protection. State the following:
“I command that my home, this home, and property be encircled with the
protective concentric circles of Divine Power (blue), Divine Wisdom (gold), and
Divine Love (Pink). So Be It!”

~ Gratitude
State the following: “In the name of Light, I give thanks to all the Light Beings who
assisted me with this Clearing today. I say thank you and Amen to you!”

Other ways to clear negative energy in a home is:
• to play music, especially Bach, Mendelssohn, Handel, Mozart, and Pachelbel

• Dancing, Singing, Laughing,

• Lighting candles, especially white candles are good for lifting energy, Black candles are good for protection, blue and pink candle are great for invoking your angels.

• Put sea salt (a tablespoon), lavender oil (ten to twenty drops), and distilled water in a spray bottle. Spray rooms or areas that feel heavy, You can also spray yourself, spray above you and let the water gentle mist down around you, the sea salt is amazing and clearing negative energy.

Blessings & Namaste,
