Incense Smudging To Clear Away Negative Energy

by Anna Hunt,

With the beginning of a new year, many feel like they are given the chance to reset.

2015 started with a new moon, representing an opportunity to start the year with a clean slate and unearth what you find deep within yourself. To make space for new habits, experiences and relationships, you have to clean out what lingers within but no longer serves you.

The North American native tradition of smudging by burning white sage bundles has been used for this exact reason for generations. It clears out stale and negative energy out of the body and spirit. This could include all types of residual feelings regarding a situation that has past, negative emotions such as anger and fear that linger after an event or interaction, and tension and stress felt psychologically or physically.

With the right intent and respect, the smudging process can help you clean your energy field, even if you are unaware of any problems or emotional residue. Negative energy can even manifest itself physically in the body into conditions such as muscle tension and neck pain. Our feelings, either remembered by the mind or only by the body, can have a strong impact our health.

It is the feelings and emotions, our likes and dislikes, that give our life meaning, that make us happy or unhappy, fulfilled or dissatisfied and that to a large degree decide our course of action and even our health. Diseases not only make us feel unwell, but negative and suppressed emotions and feelings are a major contributing factor in causing our diseases.

When we are young, we are full of feelings and emotions, we experience them strongly, we are sensitive and react immediately and directly to our social and physical environment. When we are old, our emotions are only a distant memory and even our feelings are greatly diminished, pain is often the only feeling left.

Smudging allows you to clean out your energetic field, creating space for a new healthier you. The process can be kept simple, with only 4 tools:

Maia Toll of the Witch Camp Crew, who reminded me of this sacred tradition, does a great job summarizing the smudging process in her great little e-book designed to help you set your intentions.

– Light the sage with the fire, then tamp out the actual flame so that it is simply smoldering.

– Hold the abalone shell under the sage to catch any ash.

– Use the smoke to clear the energy around your body by fanning it toward yourself with the feather. They do make gorgeous feather fans for this, if you want to get fancy.

– Pass the smoke up your chakra, over your hands, under your feet. You can have a friend smudge your back.

– Inhale the smoke and – as you breathe out – envision anything you want to release energetically.

Even if you don’t have the exact tools, you can improvise and use a lid from a jar and a paper fan. You can also use garden sage (Salvia officinale), although it is very easy to purchase White sage bundles from companies such as herbiary.com and amazon.com.

Enjoy the process!
