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

Clearing Stagnant Energy with Sound & Sage.

Clearing your aura and spaces is an ancient practice. Even though it’s considered ancient, it’s still an effective & well-known practice today!

It’s a way to cleanse and release negative & stagnant energy energetically. Then you can invite in fresh, new, positive energy.

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!

The only mistake we made was not opening up enough windows? It was pretty warm that day, and for some reason, several wasps were flying around the windows?

We only opened two windows because only two windows had screens (new screens were getting put in), and we didn’t want any wasps flying in.

We are both scaredy-cats when it comes to flying, stinging bugs. 😮 

So, we thought, Nah, we’ll be fine.

Nope, we definitely needed more windows open, “HA”! We both felt a little loopy the rest of the day after catching a buzz from the sage smoke.

Make sure you have good ventilation when smudging! 😉

Energy from people and objects can leave impressions of itself 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 for new fresh & vibrant energy! 

There are many reasons you may want to clear stagnant energy.

Some of them include:

  • Before you move into a new home or office.
  • During and after any bad relationship.
  • 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, Sweetgrass, Rosemary, Lavender, Juniper, and Palo Santo.

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.

Steps for smudging~

  1. For best results, clear your aura before clearing your home/space.

  8. As you are smudging, thank your Higher Power for helping and protecting you.

~How to clear your Aura with sage~

When using sage to clear yourself, you will follow the same steps you used (above) for clearing a space, but the focus will be on your body instead of your Space.

  1. Stand in the shape of a T with legs slightly spread apart and your arms out to the sides.
  2. Keeping the sage stick away from your body, start at either foot, work your way up and over your head, and then back down and off the opposite foot.
  3. Passing the sage to the other hand, on the way down the opposite side of the body
  4. Repeat if necessary!
  5. Saying your mantra as you go. “Fill my aura with unconditional love” or “Release all negative energy from my aura.”
  6. Envisioning the smoke is clearing your aura of any negative stagnant energy.
