LET’S TALK ABOUT SAGE, BABY! 🍃 Saging - also known as the act of burning sage - allows for old, stangant or blocked energy from physical spaces, objects or ones aura to be cleansed and cleared. BUT HOW DO I USE SAGE? First of all, set your intention! Get clear on what you want to achieve by saging. You can either buy sage in loose leaf form or in a smudge stick (per photo above) that can be found in your local metaphysical store or online. Be sure to put the sage leaves in a heat safe dish and light with a small flame. You don’t need to make sure it’s all lit at once as the plant will burn at its own pace. Smoke will rise and begin to fill the space. There are no rules when it comes to how you should sage something, just do what feels right for you. This could mean standing in the space and imagining the smoke gathering all the old energy or perhaps you would like to state your intention out loud a few times or say a mantra or prayer. Once you’ve finished with a room open a window and imagine the old energy flowing out. Your space should feel lighter and more calm now. Wait until the ash of the sage has completely cooled and then discard. For saging objects, hold the object in the smoke and when you feel like it is finished cleansing, remove it. For saging yourself, you might like to move the sage around your body, allowing it to surround you and cleanse your aura - or put the bowl on a surface and sweep the smoke towards and around you, almost like having a sage smoke shower! BUT HOW DO I KNOW WHEN TO SAGE? Follow your intuition, you’ll know. If you’re sensitive to energies you might feel as if the vibe of your space is quite low or flat. If you have a lot of people come through your home or space then saging will help keep the energy neutral. I usually cleanse my space every 4-6 weeks. Do you have a particular ritual when it comes to sage?

Ironically the card I drew for this New Moon is Quiet Retreat which is all about getting quiet, meditation and decluttering our thoughts that can block manifestation. This time right now is all about planting the seeds and focusing upon what our intentions are and what we want to manifest into our lives next. This weekend would be a good time to retreat, clear/sage your home, and write down your intentions. Think about what you want more of in your life or something new you would like to invite into your life such as a passion, joy, peace, a relationship, fulfillment, or abundance. Also not asking how it shows up but just letting go and trusting.
Create the clearing space, light a candle, put pen-to-paper, antenna to source and plant the seed to grow your intention.
What will you be inviting in?
