Burning sage has many benefits as a spiritual practice. Some research supports certain health benefits of sage, such as antimicrobial properties and enhanced alertness, but more research is needed.
Keep it in mind. Burning sage is a sacred religious practice in some Native American cultures. Treat the ritual with respect.
First, and foremost be confident and respectful with whatever you have in your home. But you also need to remember, your home is your home even though it was someone else is before.
Preparation for Saging
Clean your home, have a deep cleaning, every corner.
Throw away all broken things, dead plants. All staffs that not useable or have bad memories with it need to go.
If there is anything in your home you don't know where it came from, and you don't need it, get rid of it.
Drink plenty of water and eat well. Do not use alcohol, drugs.
Pray and do grounding meditations every day (even if it is only 5 minutes).
When you are ready and feel good, perform a house saging. You will feel what that day is. Do not force it if you don't feel it that day.
Get a sage stick, light it, and walk around your house and your belongings. You don't need to rush it. Take your time and focus on your intention.
Use prayers like these below:
Negativity of this my sacred space
I banish you by the light of my grace
You have no hold or power here
I stand and face you with no fear
Be gone forever you will obey
From my sacred space, you must away.
God of All, Goddess of Light,
Shield & Protect Me Day & Night
Positive Feeling Alone Come Near,
All Others Wither & Disappear.
Into this smoke I release
All energies that do not serve;
All negativity that surrounds;
And all fears that limit.
