I have folks get in touch very frequently to ask me if I can advise them on how to get rid of negative energy attached to themselves, in their homes, etc. Unfortunately, I usually don’t have the time or energy for much in the way of personal advice other than to recommend gemstones that I can incorporate into jewelry (obsidian and onyx are usually the first that come to mind)… But what I can do until I have time to write an article, is recommend that you try using sage for smoke cleansing.
(To avoid confusion, since this is geared toward newbies… Smoke cleansing is what’s commonly referred to as smudging. Some folks believe that use of the term “smudging” should be limited to indigenous people and the way that they perform traditional smoke cleansing rituals, so I’ve tried to get myself in the habit of using the term “smoke cleansing,” because I’m not looking to offend anyone or appropriating anyone else’s culture. However, I am human and frequently deal with intense brain fog, so I apologize in advance if I ever slip. It has nothing to do with lack of respect.) More
