The Proper Use of Smudging for Purification & Healing

in How To

One of the most common spiritual practices is smudging or the making of ritualized smoke. Smudging is a part of almost all traditional Northern Plains Indian Spiritual activities. The smoke of sage, tobacco, sweet-grass, and other plants is often used for purification. In some instances, the smoke from the burning plants, or mixture of plants, is pulled across the body in a cleansing action. The smoke is a purifying agent, a means of dispelling the everyday energy fields and substituting a pleasant odor for the spirits to work through.

Smudging makes it possible to see and communicate directly with the Spirits/Angels. Smudging opens up the energetic portal which allows humans to penetrate the barrier that separates us from the Spiritual realm. Thus, smudging is frequently the first ritual in a ceremony. Smudging may also be repeated during times of hardship or a need to contact your Guides.

It is not just people who are smudged. Houses, cars, guns, Crystals, computers, and other items often smudged to bring them into harmony. This is because it is believed that every object-even those sometimes considered inanimate-have a spirit by the Indians.

Even though there are many ways and techniques that people use to smudge a room or person, these are the ways I use to properly clear a home/office.  (I prefer to use White sage/Desert sage for this since it has a milder or sweet smell, but you can use other types sage if you don’t have this one)

Place the tip of the wand with the end pointing up from the ground or floor and light the open end with a lighter, or candle (don’t use a match since the smoke will interfere with the smudge). Gently fan the tip of the sage with your free hand until it begins to smoke (blowing is discouraged since it can contaminate the smoke and is sometimes thought of as being disrespectful).

Continue this process until the wand smokes rather vigorously, but don’t let a flame stay longer that enough time to allow the sage to smolder. Wave the smudge to put out any flames since you just want the smoke to work with.  Play some nice peaceful music in the background if you have access to something musical that’s soothing until you complete the smudge process.  (You may need to re-light the smudge if it goes out so carry a lighter with you)

Use a plate or large ashtray during the ceremony to catch any hot cinders and to avoid damaging the carpets, furniture and floors. A small bowl or plate serves this purpose and can then be used as a storage place for any half used sage wand. (Some people use a large shell to hold the sage in but it can be considered symbolically as a neutralizer since shells come from water and fire doesn’t mix well with water. It’s all up to you but I wouldn’t use one because everything we’re doing here is symbolic).

1) First, you need to clear yourself by waving/fanning the sage smudge over your body from the floor to over your head, front to back, and all around you in a complete circle going clockwise in one complete rotation, then another circle counter-clockwise from the floor to over you head like a corkscrew.  Ask that you be cleansed and cleared of any attachments or energetic thought forms while you undertake the smudging process. (You can also do this from time-to-time just to clear your own energy fields)

2) Start at the farthest room of the house (or basement) and pass the smoking wand over the shape of the entry doorway, going to the farthest corner of the room say a prayer for the room to be cleansed. “The Lord’s Prayer” or any prayer where you ask that the house and rooms be cleansed of all negative energies, thought forms, ideas, or attachments, and never to return can be used.  Walking to each corner of the room, wave the smudge wand up and down until the smoke fills the area. Also over and around each window, closets, or opening in the room like vents to Spiritually seal them. I would say the prayer in each room just to bless it with your energy, you can’t ask for help or blessings enough in this situation. (The reason to start from the farthest room is to ward off any energy going to another part of the house around you)

When you reach the doorway ask that the room be sealed and protected from this point on while you smudge the outline of the doorway as you pass through it to keep anymore energy from passing by while you conduct the clearing.  Then start to move directly into the next room following either the floor layout long the walls. Remember to pass the wand over the edges of each window and door as you continue through each room of the house or work space.

In order for the ceremony to be most effective, the Sage Wand should cover every room, closet, door, vent, and window. The house will become a bit smoky and it is acceptable to open the doors and windows to let the smoke out.  If you have a basement you can start there and work toward the steps that lead up to the main level first.

3) The idea is to walk from the farthest room to the entrance clearing each room so that you’re pushing all the negative energy out toward the front entrance.  Since you want all of the negative energy to leave your home look at it like it was a bug or fly that you’re trying to head out the front door.

Once you’ve sealed each room and headed to the front door. Say another prayer asking that the entrance of your home be safeguarded and sealed from this moment on sending any negative energy, or thought-forms back to its source and never to return.

This ceremony should be performed whenever you feel down, or you are surrounded by negative or stagnant energy that sometimes follows after group gatherings or events. These negative energy fields may manifest as scattered emotional patterns, projects or goals which become delayed; Spiritual Influences, continued restless sleep behaviors, arguments or disagreements, illnesses, headaches, or visits from undesired guests, after going to clubs and while drinking, or doing drugs.  Most of the time these energies are minor but we can absorb them without knowing it and become agitated or uneasy without knowing why. Crying for no apparent reason is a good example!

You should allow the smoke to clear out naturally so don’t be tempted to force it out. During a correct smudging, you will notice a calming effect throughout the area being cleansed within 30 minutes. In addition, if you are having disturbing dreams, it is recommended that you smudge frequently in the room where the dreams occur, especially under the bed, hampers, and closets.

Repeat this process at a daily, monthly, or semi-annual intervals for best results especially when we enter a new Solstice, or change of seasons.

What does it mean when your sage doesn’t burn out and is turned the opposite direction then what you had it?

June September 18, 2016 at 6:15 pm

Can you please tell me what it means when you are sageing and the sage will not stay lit or smoke. I was saging my preschool and it would smoke in one room but would burn out and be ice cold to the touch in the next room. One of my preschoolers keeps crying talking about a creepy guy and I would look and no one was there so I thought I would smudge the class rooms. It stayed lit and smoked in one room but as soon as I entered 2 other rooms it would not stay lit or smoke. I went back to the room that it smoked in lit it again and it stayed lit and smoked just fine, Went back into the other two rooms and it did not stay lit or smoke again. Can anyone tell me if this means anything?

Betty September 5, 2016 at 7:24 am


I had a quick question about the smudge stick. I set out to smudge my apartment recently for the very first time. I lit the stick, but the stick made a horrible frowning face at me once the flames were blown out and began to smolder. (I didn’t know at the time not to blow the flame out, but have now read your article.)

Is this something I should be concerned about? Could I possibly have gotten some “bad” sticks? I would like to smudge again but am worried this is something concerning.

Great and very informative article!

Great post Monte. Love your blog.
Definitely this process is commonly practiced even up to this modern day. I have read something about this and I would like to know from you, does this also help oust bad spirits away?

Heather July 30, 2016 at 11:47 pm

My smudge stick wobt stay lit

Psychic LaMont Hamilton August 1, 2016 at 10:00 pm

Hi Heather,

It’s only suppose to smolder and not flame up or burn with a flame..If it won’t stay lit then it may be too green and have too much moisture in it.. Try using another brand or supplier of the sage..It should be at least 1-inch in thickness bound tightly together as well..


Catalina July 12, 2016 at 10:52 pm

My boyfriend and now my baby have bad dreams, how do we cleans our home and ourselves?

Psychic LaMont Hamilton July 28, 2016 at 11:08 pm

Hi Catalina,

Just follow the directions in the blog and use the smudging on yourself and your child..


Shelby June 23, 2016 at 11:16 am

Hi there. One of my friends is currently experiencing some scary things. Let me start off that he and his family suffer from mental illness such as bipolar disorder and depression. However, when they bought the house, a suicide occurred on the property. My friend has always hearses noises in the attic, but only he has heard them. Now, it’s escalated. He has begun to hear voices and feels a presence in his room. The noises in his attic are only above his room. He and his family are devout Christians. As am I. I’m familiar with smudging and have suggested I smudge the house for him. I also suggested we use holy water and sacred salt to enforce our actions and give protection. My fear is attachment. I fear if we do this, the entity or negative energy will leave him, but attach to me. I’m Catholic and we tend to be incredibly vulnerable to spiritual attacks and possession. Is there any way to prevent this?

Concetta Martino June 15, 2016 at 9:23 am

V June 4, 2016 at 8:47 am

Useful and great suggestions!

Tolentino June 2, 2016 at 1:06 am

I bought a smudge stick to use at a house we are going to buy. I decided to try it first in our apartment. I felt pretty good after but now I feel scared, I feel a presence. I also had a nightmare that our new house is haunted and I was trying to smudge it but I couldn’t remember the prayer. In the dream I was on the living room floor it was dark the room was empty and I was frightened by a shadowy ghost that ran by it looked like a child. I woke up with the chills. Did I do something wrong? Can I reuse the smudge stick? I am really worried and the previous tenants said that the husband had died in that house. What should I do?

Alberta Sedillo September 11, 2016 at 11:46 pm

Question. Can I use 3 different smudge sticks at once? I got white sage,mountion sage and yerba Santa (mountion balm?

Lucy May 19, 2016 at 10:27 am

I have smudged my apartment a couple times but last two times I had a terrible headache the entire day and felt light headed is there a reason for this? Also I reuse a sage stick and am wondering if I need a new one every time?

Bri May 10, 2016 at 10:44 pm

We just moved into a house and my dog just passed away because the vet made a mistake and gave him pills that made him more sick and we know his spirit is still with us and my father light up a smudge stick because the house has a negitive energy to it but since he did that im wondering if that got rid of my pets spirit also along with the bad energy?

Miss M April 28, 2016 at 3:21 pm

Hi there, great article! I had a few questions. Does it matter where or how we get the sage? A native American friend gave me some she had used in her home. I feel fine about it, but was still wondering. Also, when I moved into my home a few years ago, I noticed crystals on some windows, some seem to be more decorative (shape of a cherry for example), I have left them all just in case. Would you recommend I get new ones? Can these crystals hold the intentions of the pervious owner?

Holly Fowler April 23, 2016 at 10:45 am

I was wondering of you can use the sage wand again after you out it out, or is it necessary to bury it?

Psychic LaMont Hamilton May 13, 2016 at 10:10 pm

Hi, To be safe I would bury or dispose of the sage just to be safe.

Thank you for a great question that I overlooked.


JoJo April 11, 2016 at 9:50 pm

Hi! I really appreciate this article, and it brought me to a question. I’m going to be moving into an apartment with three roommates this coming August and I already know I should smudge my bedroom, closet, and bathroom. But as for common areas, my roommates seem to be sort of put-off by this sort of spiritual practice. Do you think it would be sufficient to just cleanse my parts of the apartment, or are there less potentially disruptive ways of cleansing the kitchen and living room? I know I’m going to be spending most of my time in my rooms, but I also love to cook and spend a lot of time baking to release energy, and I’d hate to have distressing or negative energies in those spaces whilst I’m trying to cook.

Psychic LaMont Hamilton April 21, 2016 at 11:16 pm

Hi JoJo,

Thank you for your question. In reality, if your don’t smudge everything in a dwelling or apartment then it’s not going to be as effective so I would suggest doing it when everyone is away for a few hours. If you smudge just your areas then the protection will be only be temporary at best but it will be helpful while you’re there cooking or occupying the apartment.

If you like to use crystals, then you can always opt to place some of them at the corners of the room to seal out unwanted energies.


Edward March 24, 2016 at 9:56 pm

question –

I am moving into a new place next week; I thought about doing the smudging to cleanse the house (seeing the previous renters I feel more compelled to do so)- my question is:

Should i do this before or after moving my things in. 95% of my possessions are currently in storage and have been since 2014 – and back then when i had my apartment – had a lot of negative energy more around me.

Or should i do once when its empty and a second time when i have my possessions in place?

Thanks for you advice!

Psychic LaMont Hamilton March 24, 2016 at 10:12 pm

Hi Edward,

Thank you for your question.. I would most certainly smudge the house BEFORE you move one thing into it and only after removing anything that is unwanted that may have been left by the previous owner.. Be aware that anything organic (anything made of wood, chemicals, food, fabrics etc) will hold negative energy longer than non-organic items. So if there’s wood molding, or building materials that were left behind then you may want to remove them when you’re ready to move in.

Clearing the house before moving is wise since you don’t want to mix your belongings with the energy that was left by the previous tenants especially if they were evicted or foreclosed on in a sale.. You ALSO need to do a clearing on your items that were left in a storage BEFORE taking them to your new home since having them in a public place will open the door for unwanted energy to attach itself to your furnishings… You can also do a Clearing along with a Blessing once your house is settled just to make sure that you covered all of the bases..

It’s difficult to over smudge unless you allow too much smoke to penetrate clothing or fabrics so go easy on those items so that you don’t smell like a campfire..


Wayne Mallett January 25, 2016 at 1:01 pm

What does it mean when the Whole Bundle of sage, sweetgrass. All burst into flames in the smudge bowl.

Psychic LaMont Hamilton February 19, 2016 at 12:27 pm

Hi Wayne,

If it’s too dry and too loose it will ignite that way. It should be tightly bundled and if it ignites with a flame just cover it with a lid and it will smolder like it should. No harm if it does create a flame since that’s normal.. It takes a little practice to get it just right.

Thank you,

Lora January 15, 2016 at 5:36 pm

The last six months have been extremely trying. I dealt with severe pain everyday.It took me 5 months before I found a cure.During that five months.The love of my life,who I live with.Our relationship went from the top of the world to where it is now which is he asked me to find another place to live. last night I went to visit a Friend. That I hadn’t seen prior to my back injury. She was very angry loud bossy it was all bad today I cannot shake this feeling of sadness and wanting to cry.I’m beside myself.Have decided to cleanse myself and my home. And I pray it helps.I’m not sure how or it will help my significant other from all the negative and angry thoughts he may have on a personal level? I have switched in the past. But it has never been So negative and so heavy as it is right now. I am very spiritual and believe wholeheartedly that cleansing your environment works! I pray that it is strong enough and powerful enough. Because where I sit right now. I need a miracle….. to take place.

Bridgette December 17, 2015 at 10:58 am

Can chamomile be used for smudging, I come from a place where sage is not sold and my dads house is in serious need of cleansing

Psychic LaMont Hamilton December 25, 2015 at 3:44 am


Yes, you can use it as long as you don’t smoke up the house and use the same prayer as with the regular smudging.


Vanessa November 17, 2015 at 11:46 am

My husband has gotten very very negative over the years and generally doesn’t believe in the things I do- such as smudging.
Our house desperately needs smudging. We had some real tragedies befall us the last few years as well- his father died, my son died in May, and my daughter was hospitalized last week for suicidal thoughts and a breakdown.
We have felt things and I have dreamt things that tell me there are things here that are not good. Lingering over my bed with very very ill intent.
Our house is at the end of a cul de sac and has a creek running perpendicular to it on the side and also a creek that was diverted under ground in the back to dump into the creek in the side.
I have had people comment that they are uncomfortable or feel something here.
We had more trees but my husband has taken down quite a few including 2 out of three really huge willows and some other trees. (This saddens me very much as I feel an affinity for trees- I have since I was a child- we had a HUGE oak near us that I loved.)
(One of the trees -not the willows, not sure what kind- bled bright red sap like it was bleeding when he cut it down- I cried and told him it was wrong.this was years ago tho- like 8 years)
I have been severely depressed and great unbelievable amount of fatigue and exhaustion, headaches, memory loss, etc- but I started seeking self help- acupuncture, flower essence, crystals, therapy, and recently shamanism.
One night as I teetered into sleep- the in between- not quite asleep, but not awake- I had a spontaneous vision of mesh or weaving inside my chest- like it was repairing! I just watched for awhile but then I could direct it. But I fell asleep before it was done.
Anyway, I have felt better than I have in years! Not 100% but so much better.
I’m not sure what’s happening or what it is that helped but I don’t want to backslide!
Can you give me some insight as to what’s going on?
I have no mentor or anyone else around me that believes in such things- well my kids but they don’t know anymore than I do- lol.
And even my eldest son who passed- seems uncomfortable recently when he visits my dreams or sends signs- he used to send me beautiful and happy signs -it could be that I cried a lot when he was near – and he didn’t want to make me any sadder- I don’t know.
Anyway, I apologize that this is soooo long!
Can u help? I feel like the universe or guides are trying to tell me stuff but I don’t know how to interpret.

I’ve always felt like there are things out there trying to tell me stuff and I’ve always been real sensitive but I have no one to teach me what it all means.

And I don’t know if it’s ok to smudge someone who doesn’t believe.
Thank you,

Marie June 24, 2016 at 1:22 pm

It sounds like you and your family are undergoing some intense family karma. Because it is happening to everyone in your family. It is okay to smudge on anyone non believer or believer. It is all about intention, you can smudge sage anytime and you can read books on psychic development and even take classes in your area. I recommend you go to a psychic and tell them your situation. Also, chanting and reciting mantras helps too. It is a form of prayer. I recommend chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo which is a Buddhist prayer that means I dedicate myself to the mystic law of the universe. It is a powerful mantra that helps chage your karma and family karma, and you use that mantra for anything including removing negative energies. Connect with the SGI a Buddhist organization they are a good organization who chants Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, here is their website:

Paula October 25, 2015 at 9:57 am

Hi there! Thank you so much for your insight. It really helps a lot however, I am still confused about smudging properly because I have read so many different things… I am sorry but I have several questions that I would like to ask in case you can help me, have also asked for a second opinion. Could you please provide me with details I just want to make sure am on the right path. Questions:
Rituals: I am thinking of mixing some things from different rituals and try to go with whatever I understand but I am concerned that this may not be a good idea, what would you suggest?
Smudging a room: Should I start from the farthest back corner and continue clockwise until the last corner while finishing in the middle of the room?; Then, should I wait until I leave the room?
Smudging the house: How many windows should be opened (considering the cold temperature)? Should I start from top of the house, farthest corner in the farthest room or from the entrance?; Should I go outside to finish the process?; I never smudge (obviously) and would like to bring my sister to smudge my house with me but I am concerned… She has no experience either but she is willing to help me. May she be with me along the process and if so, what should she be doing?
Smudging the basement: Have also a basement and a workshop (where my husband keeps his tools and machinery). As we cross and go up a few stairs from the basement to the workshop there is a super dark alley (to not mention that underneath the stairs going to the first level from the basement on the other side there is a dark “closet” with an oil tank). What or how do you recommend that I do here?
Smudging the car: How to start and finish this?
Smudging a person: Should I fan the smoke clockwise as I go around my body from left to the right?; If smudging another person, should it be clockwise or counterclockwise? Is there a difference?
Please help and let me know if you need further clarification. Thank you very much. Regards, Paula

leticia September 17, 2015 at 11:33 am

need prayers to say when cleansing home or self .thank you

Psychic LaMont Hamilton September 17, 2015 at 7:09 pm

Hi Leticia,,

Thank you for your question, there are many prayers that you can use like the Lord’s Prayer, or any religious prayer that is close to your heart. One simple prayer that’s known to anyone that supports a Unity Church that was written by James Freeman is really good called: “Prayer for Protection”.

The light of God surrounds us;
The love of God enfolds us;
The power of God protects us;
The presence of God watches over us;
Wherever we are, God is!

If you need a more comprehensive prayer, you can use one that I wrote in my blog: “Special Prayers for Help, Healing, & Happiness”:


thankful August 13, 2015 at 7:22 pm

Hello, thank you for your article. I haven’t smudged myself or my home in a while and things were starting to get bad. My microwave was turning on by itself and I was having horrendous dreams that often woke me up in a panic. Sometimes i would feel like I’m being threatened. I am so thankful for the cleansing that sage brings to the house. Now I know that I need to smudge more often and pray.

Morena Thomas February 10, 2015 at 5:33 am

I just bought the white sage to smudge my entire home and being from negativity ,alsi i boughg the palo santo for bringing in positive in my family,life and home,family and a black tourmaline. BUT it seems thag there is some sort of negative energy in my home disturbing and affecting my family negatively to where my 15 year old is skipping school,drinking,lying,smoking pot being rude and disrespectful im hoping this works have a good one much luv Morena…

Psychic LaMont Hamilton February 10, 2015 at 8:55 pm

Hi Morena,

Thank you for your Blessings! It may take time to clear out your home of negativity, but if your 15 year old daughter brings it back into house by her actions, then you’ll need to smudge more often especially around her room.

As a side note, it sounds like your daughter may being just going through a rebellious phase in her life so you can also incorporate Moonstone or Aquamarine to bring more balance in her life if her hormones are overactive and unbalanced, she can wear it in jewelry as well. Of course, this won’t cure her desires to be a teen, but it could help smooth out the edges so that she can make better decisions. Please be patient with her since all of this will pass once she gets a better focus on what she wants to be when she grows up.

Monte .

Mona February 27, 2015 at 2:06 am

Hi lamont Hamilton.

I followed your ritual for the sage smudging. (Well I think I did) I have a very big house. And maybe I didn’t do as good as I thought!! I didn’t feel that uplift afterwards.. I don’t believe it’s gone.. The main room my bedroom.. Constant disruptive sleeps.. I never feel well.. Those awful dreams. And my stick kept going out and I couldn’t get it to lite probably in my room, but I chanted continuously what you said to do. Any advice ..

Thanks Mona

Psychic LaMont Hamilton March 6, 2015 at 1:37 pm

Hi Mona,

Thank you for your questions.

The thing to do is to repeat this process as many times as you feel necessary to clear the room and there may be other reasons for feeling low energy or having disruptive sleep. You can use the sage as many times as you feel comfortable and it may have been due to the sage going out that caused the problem for you. You don’t need to allow it to flame up since the purpose is to use the smoke in the ritual and if it was going out prior to the bedroom then that could also be a sign that something was interfering with the process.

One area that most people are not aware of is that when you have antique furniture that was passed down from generation to generation that it will retain some energy of the previous owners and if you’ve purchased used items at a thrift store or flea market that it could bring unwanted energy that was attached to it. I’ve even known people that placed old pictures and letters from their family under their bed and it was affecting their sleep. So remove anything that could have past negative energy associated with it like: Love letters, clothing, toys, gifts, shoes, VCR tapes, photo albums, and things that relate to the past.. Anything made of wood, paper, stone, or any organic material will retain energy for a long time..

Repeat the smudging ritual on a Sunday to add a little more energy to it and sing or chant to release your energy more effectively.


Michele January 30, 2015 at 7:27 am

Hi I need help. I don’the know what else to do. I have had the worst possible luck ever since I can remember. I lost my farther when I was 14 to cancer, then my oldest brother took his own life 11 years later (not purposely took bad drug). In between my father dying and my brother dying, I got married, which started off very rough a lot of arguing, fighting etc. I have gone through getting into car accidents, falling from a second floor porch, having multiple medical issues, which now have caused me to be permanently disabled. I have two boys from the man I was married to for 17 years (they don’t listen and are very disrespectful to me ONLY), otherwise they are the most pleasant, helpful, kind and considerate young men. I thought I found my soul mate after my divorce but in the past couple years that we have been together, he has changed to a totally different man (everyone sees it) they all ask why I stay, I love the person he was and keep hoping he will come back. Since my divorce I have been diagnosed with a crohns disease, have had multiple major surgeries because of this. I finally bought a new car and it was stolen 8 months later. The insurance company took over 2 months to pay and now the gap insurance is still pending meanwhile both have ruined my credit to get another car. I really can’t take much more. Yesterday I went out and bought sage stick, spiritual candles, banishing candles, shell for smudging and insence. I am afraid if I do something wrong it will make things worse. What do you suggest and how should I use these that I have bought I have been reading and get so many different was to smudge, time, moon phase, how and where to start. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP

Psychic LaMont Hamilton February 2, 2015 at 1:59 pm


Thank you for your questions and comments..

I’m sorry for your loss of your father and brother and that’s always a heartfelt void in your life…The other things that you mentioned are just life in general and you need to find a way to look at the big picture and put them behind you. The future is all that you should be concerned with and that’s the part that you have control of. Everyone has issues that involve relationships and family after years of marriage and it can be good in-laws or bad outlaws that influence your life. Try to focus your love and intent on what you want and not what you received since it will allow you manifest new positive experiences.

Ok, You can use any and all of your items without fear of really doing something wrong.. If you follow the steps that I listed in the blog you’ll be fine and accomplish what you want which is to remove any negativity from your home..It CAN’T make things worse for you!

I don’t work by any other method than following my intuition when I do energy work or readings so trust yourself and if you feel a need to do something twice or change one of the steps that I have listed, then do so.. There is such a thing as thinking too much and too long about something until it overwhelms you so don’t read into things so much. It’s more of a ritual and intent for you to cleanse and remove unwanted energy from your home so do it the way that I have listed and if you still feel that something is not good or you, then do it another way.. It’s all about what you want and not about someone saying one way is better than another.. I live in a different would than most people and see things that others don’t see and that provides me with a special perspective of knowledge. However, I’m not the Smudge King and don’t want to be one, I’m just offering sound advice if people want to know what I do in circumstances like this..

One quick way to understand how and what you’re trying to accomplish is think of the undesirable energy in your home as a Fly, you know how frustrating it can be to run one out of your home or capture it sometimes but persistence pays off.. If you envision the energy like a fly, then you know that you have to shoo it out of one room into another until you get it out the door that you want. So start from the farthest room (and corner) and work toward the front door closing each door/closet behind you as you leave just as you would do to keep a fly from reentering that space. I wouldn’t try to set off a 3 fire smoke alarm by the smoke that you create either, a little goes a long way. This is more symbolic than physical so say a prayer that you like to use, or the Lord’s Prayer as you’re doing this ritual so your home will be blessed. If you need to do it several times that would be okay too, keep it short and simple until you feel better about your home.

If you smudge yourself first, I would just add to the prayer that you ask your Guides and Helpers to bless you with emotional/Spiritual healing for you past Loss of your family members and ask that they be sent to the Light of God for their full salvation and that will help you even more..

My sister has been experiencing things in her home, and it has been affecting her children. When her eldest daughter was about3yrs old she was seeing people in their home and experienced behavioral issues. There have been unexplaned lights seen in their bathroom , and toilet. This seemed to wane after a while, but now her other daughter who has recently turned 3yrs old is experiencing simalar things. She has names for these people and talks to them when she is in the toilet / bathroom. And has said she dosnt like them and they dont like her. They sleep in her bed and she has behavioral issues too, sometimes just biting for no reason or suddenly changing her moods. My sister is concerned and wants to smudge her home. How should she do this. Also her home used to be used for church meetings and gatherings, it is opposite a church. Please can you suggest something?

Psychic Monte December 11, 2014 at 7:51 pm

Hi Lynda,

Thank you for your question and concern for your tiny family members. It’s not unusual for past residents of a home or business to hang around or visit from time to time, so that makes sense if your sister’s home was once a church meeting place.. Even when people of Faith come together in a home, that doesn’t mean that when they go to the other side that they are free of their fears or belief systems. Some people believe that there’s only a Heaven or Hell and people of faith sometimes fear that they will visit the hot room and therefore stay earth bound for fear of final judgment. If you look at your present situation, the people that were once using the home for a church could still be thinking and seeing the home as the same as it was when they were there and if the children are playing or making noise, they could be disturbing the Spirits so they are trying to communicate with the children to be quiet.

I would do the smudging as outlined above or you could request that the church near her home bring a minister or priest to bless your home and lovingly ask the Spirits to go into the light of God where they can rest in peace.

The behavior problems could be that the Spirits are attaching themselves to the children to punish them or influence their behavior as well so smudging them along with the house will be beneficial. I would also smudge the outside of the house to double protect her home.


Linda December 7, 2014 at 6:57 pm

Can I smudge with the windows closed or will it be terribly smokey

Psychic Monte December 7, 2014 at 8:50 pm

Hi Linda,

Yes, it’s better to smudge with the windows closed throughout the smudging process and then you can open them later to let the smell leave. It’s ok to just use a small amount of smoke vs a fog to do the “Clearing” and I don’t try to set off a 3 alarm fire with the sage. Just keep it real and the sage lit enough to smolder and not burn with a flame or large bundle. If you use white sage, it will stay lit for a while and smoke even with a roll of leaves slightly larger than your thumb if you do it correctly.

You’re goal is to symbolically smudge your home with enough smoke to leave your mark and not exterminate the insects, so try it a few times and you’ll get the hang of it..

Thank you for your question!

kelia October 19, 2014 at 12:34 am

My husband found a smuging stick in a hhouse no one lived in while working there and he didnt know what it was it was already burnt and just laying in the window seal. He picked it up smelled it looked at it and put it down. Is this bad did he disturb something and why did the former tentant leave it there after they moved?

Psychic Monte October 30, 2014 at 6:23 pm

Hi Kelia,

It’s normal for people to leave a smudge stick around a house if they use them often so it’s not cursed, nor possess any harm over you or your husband, just discard it if you don’t intend to use it..


Michele October 7, 2014 at 3:14 pm

Hello… how do I do Smudging around sleeping people? The full moon on 10/8/2014 starts at 2am mst… waking everyone up to do this….. not going to happen. Any suggestions?

Love n light,

Psychic Monte October 30, 2014 at 6:25 pm

Hi Michelle,

The correct way to do this is before anyone is in the house, in your case, you can do it quietly when someone is asleep but they may wake up thinking that the house is on fire if they smell the smoke.


Rosie September 26, 2014 at 3:53 pm

Hello, my daughter keeps seeing shadows in her room and my sister came and spent the night and said in the middle of the nite she heard a flute playin three blind mice over and over. We think we had a haunted mirror so we removed it, spray painted it black and placed sulfur on top of it. We also smudged the house and she came back over to see if she still felt creepy. Well, she did. The little black shadow person manifested itself to her and I still feel like I’m being watched! I dnt know what to do. She heard “our mom” calling her from my basement… But my mom is in texas and we’re in Michigan! So it definitely wasnt her. I was laying in my bed reading bible scriptures and I thought my sister let out a long scream and it wasnt her, she was sleeping. What can I do since it seems like the smudging didnt work? Thank you!

Psychic Monte October 30, 2014 at 6:36 pm

Hi Rosie,

Not every Spirit or person that is around us is there to harm anyone, some people come to bring warnings, or to help us. In the case of your mom, people can still send messages through the Spirit world when they are alive as well as when they die, so that’s an indication that someone like your mother is wanting you to call her or communicate with her… I hear these things all of the time so it can be something as simple as your mom missing you..

By doing the smudging, that could remove some attachments in the house but people often can bring them in your home when they visit you.. So it’s likely that some of these Spirits are coming and going with your visitors or family members…

Hearing music or an instrument playing is common and even though it may be aggravating at times, it’s not a big deal and it could be related to a child that formerly occupied the home or some place nearby your house…

If you read the bible and want to use something scriptural, then I would recite the Lord’s Prayer to invoke God’s protection over you and I would also ask that any and all energies and Spirits be sent to the Light of God so they can find their peace..


Denise November 19, 2014 at 8:17 am

Hi, Monte my husband was murdered in my house by my my youngest son wants his room but I’ve felt some kind of energy in that room..I blessed his room before everything happened while I was doing it the curtains fell and I got burned too…I wanted to bless the room again before my son sleeps in there. ..should I light a white candle also?

Psychic Monte November 20, 2014 at 3:30 pm

Hi Denise,

Yes, you are correct that the energy or the Spirit of a loved one can occupy a room or home especially if there was trauma involved n their passing. You can smudge the room but that doesn’t always remove a person’s energy if it was their home. You can do a blessing and say a prayer with a white candle and ask that the loved one go into to light of Christ and recite the Lord’s Prayer. If you cannot remove the energy by yourself, then I would suggest asking someone that is familiar with doing clearings or a preacher to bless the room and your house.

A week or two..


kate September 24, 2014 at 4:40 pm

Hi Monte,

I want to know if you could help my family. Ever since I married my husband, things go good for like 3 to 5 months. Then suddenly everything goes bad. We start to loose material things. Our utilities get cut off, cuz my husband or I loose our jobs. There’s more arguments in the home. My husband was told that someone has him buried in a cemetery. Could it be possible forsomeone to do a spell on him for us never to live happy? Every six months we always go down. Can you let me know.


Ginger September 7, 2014 at 8:20 pm

My fiancé and I live in a Victorian home that was built in the 1900’s. We are also surrounded by 3 graveyards that date back to the civil war era. We have had our home on the market for almost 7 years. Houses are selling like hot cakes in our area but we are consistently feeling let down. This house has had a lot of history and at times I see and feel different personalities in the house. I have actually felt a presence pass through me. I am afraid that potential buyers are sensing all of this but don’t understand what it is that may be turning them off to this gorgeous old house. It does need work but it is priced to sell. I plan on starting with smudging but do you have any more suggestions or recommendations?

Thank You-


Psychic Monte September 9, 2014 at 6:50 pm

Hi Ginger,

Thank you for your questions and It’s not uncommon for people to avoid houses or businesses that are near graveyards due to the obvious implications of death, however, I have known several people that have used the St. Joseph statue and prayer method to see a home and I’ve seen it work for them.

You can purchase a kit on Amazon with the statue and prayer for around $10 so it’s not a big deal… Here’s a link: HERE! ( )..

The way that is performed is the following:
Make a hole in the ground that is large enough to bury the St. Joseph statue (in protective wrap) vertically.
Place the statue upside down in the ground.
Face the upside down statue TOWARDS the home that is to be sold.
For nine consecutive days, pray the St. Joseph Novena included here.
Once the home is sold, remove the statue from the ground.
Display the statue in a place of honor in the new home.

You still have a prayer that needs to be spoken to link the Statue with your intentions like the following:

I entrust myself to your care and place in your hands this request of mine (say request)….

In quiet Nazareth, long ago, the Holy Spirit spoke to your heart and you followed God’s will with wonderful faith.

In the quiet of my days, and in the hard choices I must make, help me follow the Spirit’s guidance and believe when I cannot see.

Day 1 Oh God, guide of those who listen and helper of those who hear your voice, speak to me, as you did to St. Joseph, and help me accomplish the things you give me to do .

Day 2 O God, you love your people and bless the ordinary lives we quietly live. As you blessed St. Joseph, bless what I do, however hidden and simple it may be, and let all I do be done with love.

Day 3 O God, ever faithful, you remember us always and in time reveal your blessings. Help me trust in you, as St. Joseph faithfully trusted, and never let me lose faith in the wonderful gifts you promise me.

Day 4 God of families, bless the family that’s mine. Keep us safe from harm, and never let evil come between us. Let peace remain in our hearts.

Day 5 O God, who loves children, be kind to our children today. Give them eyes of faith for seeing far, a loving heart for welcoming life, and a place always at your side.

Day 6 God of our heavenly home, bless our home on earth. Let the spirit of Mary and Joseph rest at our table, shape our words and actions, and bring blessing to our children.

Day 7 God, our Father, give your fatherly spirit to those who are fathers now. Like Joseph, give them hearts of devoted love for their wives and children and strength for forgiveness and patience.

Day 8 Give shelter, O God, to those who need it, and bring together families divided. Give us enough to eat, and decent work to earn our bread. Care for us, O God.

Day 9 Bless all families, O Lord especially those in need. Remembering the life of your Son, we pray for the poor, for those who lack a good home, for those in exile. Grant them a protector like Joseph, O God.

To conclude this novena, say one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be

The above prayer was Sourced from this website for more information.. ( )

Hi! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take a massive amount work?
I am completely new to blogging however I do write in my diary every day.
I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and feelings online.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
Appreciate it!

Angie September 4, 2014 at 11:36 pm

I’m starting to think I have negative energy in my home. Myself my husband & my son have lived here for 10 yrs. a few months ago we had to move out because we were losing our home to foreclosure, we moved in with my parents. Then m y parents helped us with the mortgage & we were able to save our home. We moved back into the house & ever since it hasn’t felt the same, it just feels very different, plus we have had a lot of bad luck since we moved back, for starters our dryer caught on fire with a lot of smoke damage to the house and we had just purchased a new fridge and coffee maker prior to this & now cannot use either one because of smoke damage, there is also a strange electrical problem going on where lights flicker which never happened before & a few other minor issues-it feels like we keep having bad luck and the house doesn’t feel right. It doesn’t feel like home to me anymore, it feel foreign I don’t feel that attachment to the home that I had when we moved out a few months ago, when we came back it just felt different. We changed our bedroom to now be in the old guest bedroom & even that feels “off”, doesn’t feel right, I feel terribly uncomfortable sleeping in that bedroom, I felt fine in our old bedroom. The house just feels uncomfortable & I don’t understand why, why now suddenly after living here for 10 yrs and moving back after only being out of the house for a few months does it now feel odd and off. I also don’t understand how negative energy can get into a house, where did it come from & why is it here. I personally felt fine when we moved back I felt positive & good but with every bad luck thing that keeps happening even the house is gradually feeling wrong and off and odd, I don’t feel grounded & this is perplexing me since I’ve always felt comfortable here, I felt fine until we moved back and the dryer caught on fire. The dryer was burning, flames and smoke and everything and ever since then things have felt terrible in here-it feels horribly off throughout the whole house as if it’s this surreal dark feeling as if it’s not even my house or not even the same house. Where did this come from and how can I get rid of this feeling or get rid of whatever is in here. In the past 10 yrs I have had some strange things going on in here-strange sounds etc but never ever have I had this kind of feeling here, it was always home to me until we moved back. Whatever it is I need to find out where it came from and how to get rid of it before any other bad things happen.

Psychic Monte September 6, 2014 at 9:17 pm


I’m so sorry about all of the trouble that you experienced in your home when you left and moved back. One thing that you need to do is have an electrician check out the wiring for you to make sure that it’s “grounded” correctly. What I mean by this is that sometimes when people vacate a property, it’s not uncommon for thieves to steal the copper wiring from the houses and I suspect that either someone attempted to steal the wiring and were interrupted to the point that they couldn’t complete the theft but left something loose, or, by you not occupying the house caused some of the wiring to cool off and contract in the fuse panel and it’s loose and that’s why you’re having electrical issues.

The reason that you’re not feeling “right” is because your home has an electrical issue that makes your house unsafe and that’s just a way for your Angels to keep you warned that you need to be on alert in case of a fire. I had this issue years ago when I lived in a camper and I knew that it was going to catch on fire, I did everything that I could to figure out what was wrong and then one day after coming in from work I was sitting on my bed and all of the power went off and I went outside and looked in the camper and it was on fire from one end to the other where the wiring caught the floor on fire. Once I had the wiring repaired I didn’t have the vision again..

So in essence, I don’t feel that your home is haunted as much as the wiring may just need to be checked out and all of the lugs tightened in the fuse box and make sure that you don’t have what is called a floating ground which just means the lugs that attach the wiring to your home are loose. The electrician can identify if it’s something that he can repair or if it’s the power companies issue to repair..


Stephanie August 22, 2014 at 9:10 am

I smudge my apartment from time-to-time, but lately I have been having very realistic and unsettling dreams that leave me feeling as if there is a negative spirit or entity in my bedroom… In one dream I saw the spirit (rose out of my husbands body , looked at me, and I woke up unable to breathe) in others I just hear voices and I wake up feeling as though I am unable to breathe…I also noticed upon waking up mid-way through the night last night that our fan had been switched to the “off” position… I asked my husband in the morning if he had switched it off – but he hadn’t… Obviously this left me unsettled.. Overall, this has been concerning to me so I smudged my apartment and also myself… A couple of questions:
1. We live on the first floor of a house… So, I’m only able to perform the ritual in our space since other tenants live on the second floor… is that going to be an issue? …. the negative energy and feelings I’ve been experiencing have been localized to the bedroom I share with my husband (and I focused heavily in the area around our bed), so I’m thinking that it shouldn’t be an issue but I wanted to ask.

2. I decided to smudge myself…. Which I’ve also done before… The is the first time I became overwhelmed with tears for a portion of the ritual… is that normal?

thank you ! I’m just feeling a bit scared as I have never had these experiences before (waking up unable to breathe.. hearing things etc.. it’s only when I’m sleeping , so I realize I could just be having terrible dreams that I’m manifesting since I’ve been thinking about it..) anyway . thank you!

Psychic Monte August 26, 2014 at 9:12 pm

Hi Stephanie,

Thank you for the great questions…

1. ..I would keep smudging and start from your bedroom outward to the the front door.. If your have any objects like antiques, new artwork, ornaments, or trinkets that could be the source of an attachment, you need to either get rid of them or remove them from your bedroom. This includes photos of your family or past relatives that have passed away since that could be the source of your concerns. The main thing that you want to do is eliminate any possible links to the disturbances and then isolate it. One thing that limits your clearing is the apt above you and if they are a couple that’s having issues, that can affect your apt as well since the energy can migrate from one room to another.. I know for a fact that this can happen and have experienced it before..The thing to do is smudge the ceiling and hang a small Mirrored ball (like a disco ball) from the ceiling. You can buy them on Ebay for a few dollars a piece and use that to protect your bedroom from any negativity that comes while you’re asleep. The mirrored ball will deflect the energy back to its source or break it up..

2. Yes, it’s not uncommon to feel a sense of relief or connection with the Angels or Spirit when you’re involved in a ritual. At our deepest core, we’re all connected to our heritage whether it’s Native American or Irish, it can be activated with some simple rituals like smudging.. Just take a deep breath and center yourself before continuing and everything will be okay..

Keep a journal and see if there’s a pattern with the time of night that you sense these encounters and it could relate to someone trying to communicate with you but you still need to set the boundaries to maintain your privacy and rest.. Say a prayer as well and ask that you be protected while you sleep..


ANN August 19, 2014 at 6:09 pm


I have a question about smudging and need some answers.

I smudged my apartment today, but I don’t know if I did it the right way?

The lady at the place where I purchased the smudge stick said that I have to do it 3 times around the apt and then open the front door and say evil spirits leave my home.

I didn’t know I had to pray while I was doing this and that I had to smudge myself first.

Can you please tell me the proper way to smudge and should I smudge myself and my husband first?

I don’t know if I did it too much because now the apt smells like sage and it is making me cough.

Thank you,

Psychic Monte August 20, 2014 at 1:53 am

Hi Ann,

Thank you for your questions..

There are several ways to do the smudging and even though some may be good, they all may not be good enough depending on the situation. If it is done correctly, then there is no need to do it three times and I suspect that’s just a ritual that someone was taught. Again, a lot depends on the person doing the cleansing and their understanding of energy. In the first place, not all Spirits are Evil and if you say; “Evil spirits leave my home” that’s not going to address any benevolent energy or spirits that are there that could be causing some of your interference.

You can say a prayer at the beginning of the smudging to clear yourself and by smudging your energy “before” you enter your home since this prevents anything from attaching itself to you along the way while you’re clearing the apt/home.. Don’t allow anyone in the home while you’re doing the ritual and cleanse them before they enter right after you do the smudging.. If your pray or meditate while you’re doing the smudging it holds your vibration high so that you can’t be affected by the spirits or energy while you’re doing the clearing…

If your husband is in the house before you do any smudging (or anyone else), then they need to vacate your apt/home until you’re through and then smudge them before they are allowed inside.. The smell isn’t very good and you need to make sure that you don’t linger too long around your clothes or linens since the smell will transfer to them.. You can always open a window later to release the smell but try to use as little sage as possible like that of a cigar and don’t allow it to have an open flame. The purpose is to use the smudging as a ritual and not to smoke out the spirit’s like they were bugs..


ANN August 20, 2014 at 5:27 pm

Thank you so much for your reply. I wanted to make sure that I did it correctly since this was the first time I had done anything like this. Doing it 3 times was a little overwhelming for me since the smell really choked me up. Next time, I will follow your advise.

Have a wonderful day! 🙂

ANN August 20, 2014 at 5:28 pm

I forgot, I have 2 cats, is it okay for them to be in the apartment when I am doing the smudging?

Psychic Monte August 21, 2014 at 11:09 am

Hi Ann,

You need to remove any animals from the house before your smudge because it will only scare them or interfere with the process.


VQ August 15, 2014 at 2:04 pm


A few years ago I would hear someone call my name in my house, it was a woman. In the past years, my 8yr old has asked that I close his closet door and is very scared of the dark, so we leave the light on in the hallway. A few nights ago, I heard knocking inside his closet and my mother has heard them too. Last night, she mentioned to me that she has been hearing a lady crying and this morning, she woke up a bit disturbed. She mentioned that while she was sleeping, she got a headache and heard a growling next to her ear. In the middle of the night, my dog was barking non-stop. Do you think smudging the house and everyone who lives in it would help? Or should I do something else?

Psychic Monte August 15, 2014 at 4:41 pm


Thank you for your questions..

Yes, smudging can help alleviate some if not all of the encounters that you’ve mentioned and it’s always good to bring white candles or any religious symbols into the rooms or closets that may represent love. Statues of Angels or cherubs may push anything negative out of the house if they are placed in open areas where people gather..

Not all Spirits are negative and if someone is calling your name it’s probably a relative or possible a person that you know (dead or alive) that was trying to make contact with you, either to let you know that they were there, or that they wanted you to focus your attention them for some reason. I’ve had many of these experiences and none of them were antagonistic but rather a way for someone to let me know they needed me for some reason.

If someone was crying, then that could represent a person that has passed that is still suffering for a loss or their passing, so what I would do is say a prayer and ask that God or his Angels send this person or any other people in the house into the light of God so that they can be loved and healed. You can also say that prayer each night as you go to bed and also ask that you be protected while you sleep from their influence.. Getting a headache is a way for your body to notify you of negative people or environments. As-soon-as you start to feel the headache you should begin to say a prayer for protection since that’s a sure sign of negative attacks or negative interaction with something..

Smudging will help and also use white candles or anything angelic in nature like statues or pictures to post in the places where you feel that someone is interfering with your home.. In the closet, I would place a night light or remove any old clothing that may be from a Thrift store or any dead person that may have come in contact with it and dispose of them. Spirits can attach themselves to any physical object no matter how small, including photos, pencils, clothing, ashtrays, etc..


Atlantian Angel August 25, 2014 at 7:41 am

Bought my home in 1/2013 spirit encounters my dream world and Thanksgiving Holiday, is still in home but in his room. Several smudges lighter air in home. After blessing and cleansing and offerings spirit refuses to go and extinguished my 7 day candle and it was shattered on the floor! There was no winds or animals in The room. The spirit is trying to share story of house and Underground Railroad. More to say to you in private email possibly? Thank you

Psychic Monte August 26, 2014 at 10:25 pm


Not all spirits are negative or bad so keep that in mind when you try to remove them. I’ve been in many houses where the former owners would make visits and if you try to interfere with their visits they could get annoyed. What I would ask is, “that only Spirits or people that are there for your best and highest good can stay and all others be sent to the Universal Light of the Universe or the light of God”.

As long as you don’t bother them, they normally don’t bother you. I know that they extinguished your candle but hypothetically they could have done that to protect you from starting a fire, or they were afraid of the candle for some reason.


David August 15, 2014 at 8:19 am

Hi. My boyfriend moved into his new house a few months ago, and I believe there is some sort of presence, either positive or negative in his bedroom. It’s always freezing in this room, even with a heater going. Neither he or I can sleep more than two hours in that room and have terrible nightmares, even the dogs won’t go in there, but will growl at the door. I would like to do a cleansing, but I’m not sure if I should do it throughout the whole house. It only seems to be in this one room. And what I should use (type of sage) Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Psychic Monte August 15, 2014 at 4:17 pm


Thank you for your question, Yes, by all means you can smudge your home and go through each room from the farthest from the room that you’re having issues with and work your way to that room so that anything that leaves your room cannot move to other parts of the house. I prefer white sage but if you don’t have access to that type (you can order it online from Ebay, etc) can use any sage. The key is to smudge often and do it by the directions that I have provided in the blog. You can also recite the Lord’s Prayer while cleansing or praying and it should offer some relief.

The cold spots or rooms is a sign of non-physical spirit encounters so you’re spot on about that part. The dogs not going in the room is another sign, but don’t despair and know that you’re in control and I would ask that the spirits not bother you or interfere with your presence in the home.. If you ahve brought in any unusual objects like statues or antiques that could hold the energy of someone that has passed away too.

Pray and ask that any spirits in your home be sent to God’s light so they can be whole again and be loved.

Many Blessings,

WOW Monte,
I smudged my home last night, for the first time, and I can’t believe how well I slept! That is the first time that I have slept all night in over 2 years. (And I had forgotten to take my sleeping pill.) Plus, I woke up 8 mins before the alarm went off, feeling rested and refreshed! I am now, ready to go to work, 30 mins early.
Thank you very much!
Happy Amy

Hi Debbie,

By all means do the smudging in your home and follow the blog on the proper technique.

You can say a prayer prior to the start of the process to make your intentions known.

Once you have asked to seal areas, doors etc, why does one need to do this daily, monthly, or semi-annual intervals?
Thanks for your time!

That’s a good question:

Even though we can clear an area out and maintain it if we’re the only person living there, every time you bring another friend or family member into your home, you allow their energy, phobias, fears, stress, and thought forms into your personal space. Hence, when you’ve broken the seal and need to do a little maintenance from time-to-time to make sure that you’re protected. As an example; when you have a social event or party in your home, all those people will bring their energy there and you may not want it to linger long after they leave.

Last year, a friend of mine was entertaining guests in her home each month and sometimes after they left I could sense some imbalance in the energy there. There were also times when her dog would get scared and hide in a closet due to the parties so that was a sign that some scattered energy was affecting her pet and making her fearful…That’s just one of many reasons to smudge again.

The interval frequency is your own call when you feel that you need to do it again, but every few months isn’t a bad time just to make sure that you’re protected..

I am moving into a new home as part of a pre-divorce separation. I plan to smudge with my niece, the most positive person I know. I do intend to have guests over periodically to play games, something that I find usually brings in positive energy. How will I know if I need to redo the smudging?

Hi Brandy,

Thank you for your questions. If you have any pets in your home that start acting funny or strange that can be a clue that you need to smudge again, or if you feel that the energy has shifted lower, then that would be a good time to re-smudge.

As a general rule, if you notice any people that visit your home having an ill temper or disposition, then that would be a clue that you remove that energy by smudging again.

I normally recommend smudging if things seem to be out of order and if you have a lot of unknown people in a room or home and if there’s odd feelings when you walk into a certain part of your home.
