Sew a doll from natural fabric. Stuff it with a mixture of mint, sage and wormwood. Harvest three small pebbles from the road.
Light two white candles, put a doll between them. Put water and burn incense on the corner (you can add the same sage to the incense). Next, read the plot:
“I call the assistants who have been waiting for me on Earth. I call the assistants who came to Earth to follow me. I urge those who stand behind my left shoulder, I call those who stand behind my right shoulder. I urge those on whose shoulders are my feet, Those who look at me from Heaven. "
Fumigate your doll, spray it with water. Bring the doll over one, and then over the second candle. Put it again between the candles and say:
“I ask the Higher Powers, I ask the Powers of my Tree to create for me a protector. May the Helper Spirit come to the call of the herbs, my protector. He will not let evil wormwood come to me, will not harm mending peppermint, he will drive away the unclean spirit of sage in a doll. I illuminate the place for my assistant with water, fire, air and earth. ”
Take the sage that you burn (or incense, if you do not want sage), begin to circle them around the doll clockwise and say:
“By the power of the herbs of the earth, by the power of the herbs of heaven,
In this doll I combine the power of good, for the benefit of me given.
From forests and fields, I take the power of herbs.
Bring me the Spirits and Gods of the helper,
Reliable and loyal defender.
Take him along forest paths, steppes and plains,
Mountains and ravines, through dreams and bridges,
From the invisible worlds.
To stand guard over my peace
To protect the house and me,
That we were inseparable together at night and day. ”
Wrap the doll in white cloth, leave it on the altar. Extinguish candles only when a third of the candle burns out. Water remains on the altar as well.
So do the ceremony for three days in a row. After wrapping the doll in white cloth and taking it to sleep with you, until you see your Protector Assistant in a dream. What to do next with the doll is recognized by the Higher Forces or Gods, Spirits, and Ancestors.
Ancient Native American remedy.
Remember the period in your life when you were haunted by a bad mood, from which you could not get rid of it.
Perhaps the negative emotions generated by the unpleasant incident did not want to leave you, or you just got into a new space, and you suddenly felt uneasy. Call it whatever you like - intuition, energy, perfume - but we all felt the effect of the sixth sense on ourselves.
And although such moments are usually fleeting, sometimes they drag out, and the accumulated negative does not let us go for too long. This is where sage fumigation comes to the rescue.
Sage fumigation is an ancient practice of expelling negative energy. It helps to clear the negative of a specific person (including himself), as well as the home.
What is sage?
Sage is a stunted plant related to mint.
Many people know it as a spice, but sage has also been used since ancient times as a healing agent - and not only among North American Indians.
The Romans used sage in sacred rites, and its scientific name "salvia" comes from the Latin word "save", which reflects its healing properties.
The spiritual history of sage purification.
Sage has always played and continues to play an important role in various rituals and beliefs of the Indians. It is believed that sage smoke has the ability to carry away negative feelings.
Indians believe that smoke not only takes away negative energy with them, but also brings blessings and prayers to the universe.
The psychology of sage.
Cleansing with sage is undoubtedly a spiritual practice, and therefore requires a certain faith. However, most people can experience the benefits of fumigation on a purely psychological level.
It is not necessary to practice Native American beliefs in order to feel the beneficial effects. Even if you do not have spiritual beliefs, you can still feel the positive and negative energy.
When burning sage, the smell in the room changes, and the temperature and texture of the air become slightly different. This subconsciously creates a sense of positive change.
Why and when should sage be cleaned?
People who regularly carry out sage purification confirm that this is an effective way to cleanse the space of stagnant negative energy. It is known that burning sage or any other incense cleans the air of negative energy and improves the aura.
Some do fumigation daily, some only during religious and ceremonial ceremonies. Others believe that it is enough to carry out fumigation after difficult, negative experiences, so as not to create energy blocks.
Whatever path you choose, one thing is certain: by making fumigation with sage once, you will definitely return to it in the future!
What will change after cleansing with sage?
The idea of cleansing or “disinfecting” space with fumigation may seem strange to those who have never tried it, but proponents of this method say that the difference is felt immediately after the ritual.
First, fumigation clears thoughts and allows for more complete awareness. Secondly, after fumigation you will feel physically cleaner, as if taking a shower!
In addition, it will be easier to breathe in the house, and if you had trouble sleeping, they will magically evaporate. You wake up awake and full of energy!
How to choose a sage and fumigate?
If you still decide to conduct a cleansing ceremony, then the first thing you need to find is a white sage - this is the variety that is usually used for fumigation.
White sage differs from sage, which is used in cooking, and is used for a variety of medicinal purposes - from healing wounds to relieving menstrual pain. Fortunately, white sage can be easily purchased online. Moreover, many online stores sell ready-made bundles or fumigation sticks.
Some people prefer to use a sea shell for ashes when fumigating, but you can take the most ordinary plate or ashtray.
When you are ready to start the cleansing process, light the sage and go around each room of the house or apartment. Try to make sage smoke get into all corners. Also pay particular attention to windows and doors.
While lighting the space with smoke, pronounce blessings to make your home safe, cozy and welcoming.
It is very important to remember your intentions and not think about unnecessary things in the process of fumigation.
If you want to fumigate yourself, start from the head, and then drive a lit bunch of sage around the trunk and limbs.
Try to cover yourself with smoke from all sides to touch every part of the body and aura.
Although this process will take very little time, you will feel the result right away.
Having lit smoke with sage smoke, you will feel that the atmosphere has become cleaner and your mood has improved. Even pets will be calmer!
