Cleansing Out the Old with White Sage

Cleansing Out the Old with White Sage

Let’s face it. Whether we like it or not, there is going to be old and stagnant energy around. This is a fact of life as there are times where energy sits like an old pool of water and festers to the point of it being detrimental to that of which comes by it – well, most of the time anyway.

Old and stagnant energy is very much like the pool of old water. The pool of water attracts mosquitoes as it is perfect for them to lay their eggs and have the larvae grow into adult mosquitoes. These then buzz around, feed on people and animals while making a general nuisance of themselves.

In many ways, negative entities are like mosquitoes – they love stagnant energy. To them, the stagnant energy is like that of the still pool of old water. It is comfortable, they don’t have to do much, they just wait for people to pass by them so they can go and drain someone of their energy in order to feed. Not ideal for us humans as these are like mosquitoes, they drain us of vital energy and they simply multiply from this.

So, what can we do about it? Quite a bit in some ways.

First and foremost is to identify where this stagnant energy is sitting. Think of areas in your home or space where you feel uncomfortable – skin crawling, itching, nail biting uncomfortable. You can’t quite put your finger on it but there is something just not right about that space. This can often be the case under desks, in cupboards or other areas that don’t get much, if any, natural light. Once you have identified this space, it is time to do something about it.

White Sage has been a go-to for centuries for many people throughout the Native American culture as it cleanses the space by filling it with a purifying energy that comes from this sacred plant as it smoulders. The smoke of this plant is known to have anti-bacterial properties too as shown in the research published in 2007 in the Journal of Ethnopharmacol. This shows too, that there are physical benefits to burning White Sage and not just spiritual or energetic benefits. For such benefits, it is recommended that you utilise a White Sage Smudge Stick for full benefits.

However, there are some places where it is almost impossible to use a White Sage Smudge Stick to full effect due to the sheer amount of smoke that it gives off in the process. Times where this may not be practical include but are not limited to: people with respiratory issues, such as Asthma or Bronchitis; and there being to many smoke alarms in the space. But there is a possible solution: White Sage Clearing Spray.

White Sage Clearing Spray has been made using the essential oil that comes from the White Sage plant and, as such, carries the energetic properties of White Sage but in a handy spray form. This is a great thing to have as you can spray this in your environment and yourself to clear the old energy away from yourself as well. It can also be used in any vehicle as well to clear the stagnant energy out with ease.

Whether you use a White Sage Smudge Stick or the White Sage Clearing Spray, you are sure to be able to shift the stagnant energy and give these negative entities the flick with ease.
