How Does It Work?
Space clearing is a simple and powerful ritual way to cleanse a person,
place or object of negative energies, spirits or influences, and invoke divine energy, through the use of ceremony and ritual. It involves the burning of sacred plants and resins, passing an object through smoke, or fanning the smoke around the person or place using hands or ideally, a feather.
Space clearing techniques have been practiced throughout ancient history by many cultures that give it a different name and use different tools but the intent is the same – to cleanse and purify a space or person to create balance and harmony.
Native Indian Americans use drums, rattles and burn herbs in their space clearing ritual known as smudging. White Sage, Desert Sage, Cedar, Lavender and Sweetgrass are often used during their smudging
ceremonies. The Chinese use gongs, bells, chant, blessed paper and burn
incense. Other cultures use blessed water, candles, salt, flowers, and
prayers. In the Middle East, resins such as frankincense, myrrh and
benzoin are popular.
Whichever way is adopted, the result is the same after a space cleanse –
you will feel that your space is immediately lighter, clearer and fresher.
