Smudging your sacred space is like receiving an energetic shower or a deep metaphysical cleansing. The smoke actually changes the ionic composition of the air, and can have a direct effect on reducing any negativity that has been left behind.

Tips:  Put a chamomile bud, piece of copal and sage leave on a charcoal tablet to begin your meditation smudge ritual.  Focus on the smoke, the scent and the general visual of the herbs and resin burning on the charcoal.  Put all of your positive intentions into it and release negative thoughts.  Walk around your home, beginning from the last room hitting each corner with the smoke.  Think positive thoughts - give thanks for all the things you love about your space.  Welcome in positivity while walking towards the front of your space.  Open the front door and let smoke out while envisioning negativity out and away.
