Smudging is an age-old and revered tradition of purification, cleaning, and connection to the Creator. Our energy is cleansed, and we are connected to thankfulness and the Creator when we burn medicines (cedar, sweetgrass, sage, and tobacco). Medicine isn't seen as a treatment for illness but as a gift from the Creator.
Our intentions are raised into the spirit heavens through the act of smudging, which is a gesture of thanks. When getting ready to smudge, mental and emotional clarity are crucial. Smudging is optional. Therefore, one can refrain from doing it without offending during rituals.
It is advised to start your smudging by facing east, the direction where the day begins. To get ready, set up a fire-resistant surface or container before you.
Following these steps, you can perform a smudging ceremony with sacred medicines to purify and cleanse your space and invite positive energy. Remember to always approach this practice with respect and intention.
