An Inspiring, Full-Color, Photo-Packed Guide to Cleansing Your Home of Negative Energy.

The ancient art of smudging, or burning sage and other herbs in a sacred ritual, has been used for thousands of years to clear negative energy from people and spaces. The world is full of energy, and our lives are deeply impacted by its ebb and flow. Negative energy can cause turmoil and chaos in our lives without our even realizing it. With smudging, you can dispel the negative energy from your home, yourself, and your life in order to make room for more positive energy and peace. The Healing Power of Smudging will show you how to burn sage and herbs in your space to create a peaceful, calm sanctuary. This book covers the historical roots and traditions of smudging practices, instructions for performing different types of ceremonies, and suggestions for customizing your rituals to your personal needs.
