How to Clear Your Space and Aura Effectively With Sound and Sage

When I helped my daughter-in-law smudge her new place with a white sage & lavender blend before she moved in, and it was a great experience! Clear Your Space & Aura

The only mistake we made was not opening enough windows. It was hot that day, and for some reason, several wasps were flying around all the windows. It was weird. Clear Your Space & Aura

Plus, the screens needed to be replaced and had already been removed, so only two windows had screens. We didn’t want any wasps flying in “Eeek,” so we only opened the two windows with screens.  Clear Your Space & Aura

We thought, oh well, we’ll be fine.


Nope, we definitely needed more windows open.

We both felt loopy the rest of the day after catching a buzz from the sage smoke. “HA”!

Make sure you have good ventilation when smudging!

Clearing your space & aura, also known as smudging, is an ancient practice. And is considered to be effective!

When we live with an autoimmune condition, it can be stressful at times, and we end up carrying that stress in our aura/body.

Smudging is an excellent way to clear and release negative & stagnant energies from your space & aura.

Then you can invite in fresh, new, positive energy. Clear

Reasons to Clear Stagnant Energy

Energy from people and objects can leave impressions of themselves in spaces like your home, office, and car. 

Also, negative stagnant energy can stay trapped in your aura. So, it’s essential to regularly clear all of these areas to make room for new fresh vibrant energy to be welcomed in! 

Best times to smudge include:

  • Before you move into a new home or office.
  • During and after any bad relationship.
  • While dealing with health/autoimmune problems
  • After the death of a loved one.
  • When a traumatic or damaging event happens.
  • While feeling depressed or sad.
  • During and after an illness.
  • When buying a new car ~ especially a used car.
  • Monthly energy maintenance is good too!

The most important thing about clearing energy is your intention. When clearing, you can visualize the old stagnant energy leaving the area while inviting fresh, new, positive energy in.

Things to have before you begin!

White sage is the most popular sage for smudging. It’s associated with purity and has a strong presence, but you can also use other varieties.

Some common varieties are White, Black, or Red sage, Cedar, Rosemary, Lavender, & Juniper.

Although keep in mind that some people are sensitive to smoke, and burning herbs can be a little overpowering.

So, if you find that the smoke bothers you, there are other options! Like using sound, diffusing essential oils, or using a smudging spray.
