How To Sage Your Home
Burning Sage allows the removal of most negative energies and experiences from the room—work one room at a time. Start by opening the windows and doors to provide negative energy to escape. Light the sage smudging stick until it begins to emit smoke. Keep your intentions in mind as you make your way through the home, moving in a clockwise direction moving through the house. Continue until peace and love begin to fill the home while sending the negative energies away. While you are saging your home, make sure that you keep a strong and focused intention in mind.
