What is smudging?

“Smudging” is the common name given to the “Sacred Smoke Bowl Blessing” a powerful cleansing technique from the Native American tradition.  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.  White sage is burned in smudging ceremonies to drive out evil spirits, negative thoughts and feelings, and to keep negative entities away from areas where ceremonials take place.  Sweetgrass is burnt after smudging with sage, to welcome in good influences after the bad have been driven out.
