In our previous article, White Sage Smudging Incantation, we looked at the energetically and ethically charged word: incantation. This article is a continuation, giving thought to healing your hurts the white sage way. If you haven’t read that article you might want to start at the beginning.
Healing Your Hurts
Knowing the impact of what you think and how you feel can have a powerful effect on the choice you make.
Every one of us has had experiences when someone did harm or acted in a hurtful way toward us. How did you respond to those events? Are there any old wounds still affecting you?
If you were free of whatever it is that makes you feel uncomfortable, how would you feel? What could you do?
Insights into healing your hurts
While writing this article, as with every article, I weave many levels energetically into the words. This includes an energetic “demonstration” of the process. There is far more than just words in my writing, and my counseling services!
While I stepped through the process, for myself, I noticed some very interesting shifts that were worthy of sharing.
First was in asking the question, “If you were free of whatever it is that makes you feel uncomfortable at this time, how would you feel?” The first response was clearly an unknown, empty space, a bit unnerving, like standing at the edge of a chasm, not seeing was was beyond. This could be a stopping point for a lot of people. Let it be, and let your vision clear. My clearing did not have words, but images of myself being within my own peace and quiet.
The next question I asked, “What could you do?” was surprising, and most welcomed. I saw that I would have so much more energy to use for creating what I want, expressing myself with happiness, creating something worthy of sharing. As I allowed that impression to remain within my vision, I could see that others were soon seeing me, turning to greet me, seeking my services or buying what I had created.
Wow, I really like seeing my power used in a creative way. It’s much better than butting heads in an inner struggle, or remaining stuck in harsh feelings for others.
Healing Your Hurts The White Sage Way
Sometimes you may feel hurt, or harmed by others. No one appreciates feeling that way. Sometimes the response is to strike back. Other times you might try to step around the hurt, trying to carry on with your life.
Taking a few minutes to recognize the discomfort, giving it a chance to be recognized, can make a world of difference. It can be hard to let go when the feeling has such a strong grip. One way to shift out of hard feelings or hurt is to see something even more powerful than the moment, and that means seeing you in a different light.
Strengthening your inner voice
Preceding your prayer or expression of honor with a few minutes of self-clearing will free your energies so you can have even stronger presence, and a clearer voice. As you practice these simple exercises, your head will be clearer, your heart will be heard, and your world will express itself in an even more harmonious way.
