Burning sage is an ancient practice that has been used for centuries to purify and cleanse a space of negative energy. It is also known as smudging and is used to create a sacred and spiritual environment.
This practice has been used by many different cultures, including Native Americans, who believe that sage smoke can clear a space of negative energy and restore balance. The smoke is believed to carry away negative energies and bring in positive ones.
The practice of burning sage is simple. You will need some dried sage, a fireproof container, and a lighter or matches. Place the sage leaves in the container and light them. As the sage burns, the smoke will fill the space. Once the sage has burned out, the negative energy will have been cleared.
Sage can also be used to cleanse objects such as crystals or jewelry. Simply light the sage and pass the object through the smoke. This will allow the sage smoke to cleanse the object of any negative energy.
