Ever felt like your energy has been drained? Feeling everything is negative, depressing and you simply have no energy at all?

This can be due to an inactive energy in your field. And before you ask- Your field is your overall emotional, energetic, mental, spiritual and physical body state. Your field also ties into your everyday environment, including your home.

If there is negative energy in your field or within your environment, your mental and psychical state can be affected in many ways. This energy can even manifest as pain, disease, successes, or an abundance or lack of happiness in your life.

The art of smudging combats the negativity in your life.  It can clear the negative energies in your field and help you reset.

Smudging is an ancient practice used in various forms by people and cultures throughout the World. The practice generally involves the burning of sacred plants, most commonly sage. The smoke is then allowed to envelop an area to clear and ‘bless’ the environment.
