20161003_150740-1_resized_1-1“Smudging is the burning of herbs with the intent to bring about/manifest a desired change in one’s emotions, thoughts, surroundings and reality. Smudging is a golden thread that connects and runs through all cultures, religions and belief systems and has been practiced throughout the millennia.”    Philip Gardner writes so well.  It is a pleasure to learn all that he is offering.

He gently reminds us that smudging is an act of true self-empowerment because it allows you to take responsibility for your well-being.    You can read more by Philip if you follow this link.   http://www.aboutholistic.co.za/smudging.html

space for healing

Yesterday, I picked a basket full of sage & rosemary.  Rosemary for mental clarity ~ letting20161003_141143_resized go of negative thoughts.  Sage for purifying, healing, cleansing.

I made 14 bundles.  I used cotton thread and string to bind them into “smudge sticks”.  My fingers, the string, our kitchen, the garbage can, everything smelled wonderful.  20161003_144606-1_resized

Now, I let them dry for 4-6 weeks.  Then we can use them to burn.  It is a lovely housewarming gift to give a friend.  Or something to share with a friend feeling under the weather.

The simple act of Blessing a Space is reason enough.

In this together, friends.

Bless, heal, balance. 20161004_084917-1_resized
