Can I Clean A Dream Catcher With White Sage Blessings?

how to cleanse a dream catcherCan you cleanse a dream catcher with white sage? Yes, that’s a great way to clear the energy of a dream catcher! When is it time to clean your dreamcatcher? I’d say visible dust might be an indicator that some time has passed. You can also set specific times, such as the days of the equinox or solstice.

How to clean a dream catcher

First, take the dream catcher outside, and shake, dust, or blow on your dreamcatcher to clean off the dust. You can also lightly use a feather duster. If you have a safe place to hang it, you can also leave your dreamcatcher in the sun for a few minutes.

Now let’s look into the difference between cleaning off dust, and doing an “energy cleanse” for your dream catcher.

Using white sage blessings to cleanse your dream-catcher

Just as dust can accumulate on an object, energy can accumulate as well. Dream catchers were intended to capture bad dreams and energies. Regardless of whether the energy is good or bad, in my opinion, since energy is associated with movement and life and should be freed from any stagnant place. You wouldn’t take a deep breath and indefinitely hold it, would you?

You clear the energy of your dreamcatcher outside and offer new blessings as well. As I focus on the topic, I realized you can do either a simple blessing prayer, like this one, as you smudge your dream catcher with white sage smoke.

“Great spirit, restore divine guidance and protection within this dream catcher, creating a safe dream space for all within this house.”

“Great mother, ground this dream catcher and all energies it captures. Support our divine prayer with your love for life.”

Creating a Seven-Point Blessing for your dream catcher cleansing

You can take your blessing to a whole new level, and use this same blessing for yourself and anyone else you wish to share it with.

Step-by-step Seven-Point dream catcher blessing

Light your white sage wand, and do a counter-clockwise circle under your dream catcher with the white sage smoke for each prayer:

Face north: “Spirit of the North, let my dreams bring new beginnings”
Face east: “Spirit of the East, let my inner child live happy and free”
Face south: “Spirit of the South, bring clear passion and purpose”
Face west: “Spirit of the West, let my actions become wisdom and reward”

Hold dreamcatcher upward, and smudge under (careful not to get smoke or ash in your face/eyes:

“Great spirit, restore divine guidance and protection within this dream catcher, creating a safe dream space for all within this house.”

Lower the dreamcatcher and circle again with white sage smoke:

“Great mother, ground this dream catcher and all energies it captures. Support our divine prayer with your love for life.”

Hold the sage stick a hands-reach in front of your heart, and use the dream catcher hand to direct the smoke, in a symbolic way, toward your heart.

“All directions, Great Father and Great Mother, I agree to honor you and honor myself. Aho (Amen).”

Full Moon Energy Healing

Depending on your circumstances, you might even want to leave your dream catcher out during part of a (dry) full moon night. Gemstones like this full moon clearings, as well. Dream catchers are closely connected to night and the moon.
