White sage smudging is known as a way to focus on honor, clear away negative energy, and instill a cleaner, more supportive energy. Many individuals use smudging by itself, with great results. Others combine smudging with prayer.
White Sage Smudging Prayer
There’s the basics: who, what, where, when, and why. Is the prayer to bring peace to those within your household? Is it meant for a certain event or gathering? What outcome are you asking for?
Your prayer can focus on six points. Four of those directions are the compass point: north, east, south, and west. The other two are Great Spirit and the ancestors, and Gaia, or mother earth.
White sage smudging prayers can be long and all-encompassing, or they can be short and to the point. Combined with the aromatic white sage smudging, a clear head, and an honest and giving heart, your blessing can be a powerful statement.
