Why smudging a house is more than just burning sage to cleanse a house?
Although the smoke will help to cleanse a space, there is more power in the house cleansing ritual if you do it properly.
Once you’ve lit the herb, walk through the house or space and specifically ask for any negative energy to leave and leave now, as this is your space and you have the rights to your space.
These negative energies can manifest themselves in the form of thoughts, emotions or feelings that have been left in your space. Or they can be any unwanted presences, spirits, demons, energies or energy disturbances.
It’s important that you take command of the space and confidently ask for what you want. You’re commanding these energies to leave, and you’re using that smoke, whether it’s sage or eucalyptus, to support the removal and cleansing of negative vibrations.
Using your verbal request plus watching the smoked herbs waft through the home magnifies the approach. The best way to do it is to leave the door shut, let the smoke move through all the rooms in the house, and you repeat the same sentences as you’re walking around the house.
Once the whole house is all full of the smoke and you feel it’s complete, open all the doors and windows and let the smoke out.
