Plain sage can be used in any number of situations including to cleanse yourself, others, objects, a room, building, crystal, or even a piece of land.
This ritual is known as sage smudging – and it’s practiced by burning a bundle of dried sage and then directing the smoke onto the areas that you want to clear or protect.
As the bundle is burning and the smoke spirals, wafts and begins to fill a space, it is cleansing. As you’re burning sage it’s important to express gratitude, as well as to express your intention for why you’re burning sage in the first place.
In this very simple way, the energy of sage brings cleansing, protection, and blessings into space it’s burned in.
The smoke attaches to negative energies, and as the smoke then begins to dissipate it transforms those negative energies into universal energy. And so, your intention for cleansing, clearing, and protection is fulfilled.
