Start with an open heart and mind with the intention to receive blessings that will cleanse you ad your space. Open all the windows and doors in your home to allow air to circulate and negative energy to escape. Light one end of the sage, burn for a few seconds and then gently blow it out to release a small trail of smoke. Circulate around your home, relighting and fanning as needed. You may pray or recite positive affirmations as you work through the space. When finished, extinguish the flame. Smudge as often as you feel a desire to create calmness, purity and balance.
