Burning sage is a great way to cleanse and purify your home or sacred space. Here are the steps to do it safely and effectively:
Open a window in the room where you will be burning sage to ensure proper ventilation.
Light the sage bundle with a lighter or match and blow out the flame so that the sage smolders.
Move around the room, allowing the smoke to fill the space and cleanse it.
Speak out loud what you are cleansing from the space or your life, such as "all negative energy".
When finished, extinguish the sage by pressing it against a fire-proof bowl or shell.
I hope this helps. Wishing you a blessed and cleansing ritual.
