Last week I wrote about EMF detectors and my thoughts on how they work. Not only my thoughts but it was also backed up by science. I like science because they give facts. The next thing I want to write about is smudging.
Smudging is not a new age thing but a tradition that had been used by natives from the North American continent- this goes up into Canada as well. White sage is often used in conjunction with sweet grass to help purify an area. Some believe the smoke from the sage (mixed with other herbs) can bless a person or object- depending on the desired effect.
This is not a how to guide but more of a discussion on why people believe this works.
My own goal is not to get rid of a spirit or ghost but to investigate why they are there and document evidence of their presence. I am also not trying to get anything to "cross over" that is also not in my objective. I have read through scientific journals looking for documented benefits of burning sage and the only things I could find are that it is used as an air purifier. *reference below* Unfortunately the only part of the article available is the abstract and paying $35 for the complete article is not happening today.
If you are wanting a positive vibe before moving into a home this could be for you. I have not heard positive results on using smudging to rid oneself or home of spirits- good or bad. If you've had luck let us know in the comments.
I just read this article on smudging and it made a lot of sense! In the article- that I will provide a link to- the author suggested that smudging does not get rid of spirits (I agree with that) but it can cleans the home of negative energy. So, if you have had a lot of negative experiences but not paranormal- this may be something that helps add the positive energy flow and it is up to your own beliefs to make that happen.
