Intention Setting With Your Crystal
Light the end of your stick of Palo Santo. Allow it to burn for a few seconds and then blow it out. An ember should remain that emits and slow, smooth, smoke. Hold it below your crystal, allowing the smoke to completely cover your crystal. Focus on your intention, sending positivity and love into your stone, into yourself, and into your life. Move about your space, anywhere you would like to clear the energy. The act of smudging is a meditation in itself, with an added benefit of a rich smell will also bring peace and clarity to the moment.
What Is Smudging?
Smudging is a ceremonial practice where herbs are burned in a focused, intentional way to cleanse out negative energy and to replenish healing energy.
It provides an uplifting scent that raises your vibration in preparation for meditation and allows for a deeper connection to the Source of all creation. It can enhance creativity and bring good fortune to those who are open to its magic.
Healing Properties of Palo Santo
Studies show that smudging with herbs and woods removes bacteria from the air, literally sanitizing it over time. Palo Santo has been traditionally used for relieving colds and flu symptoms, stress, asthma, headaches, anxiety, depression, inflammation, emotional pain and more. It can also be simmered in hot water and drank as a tea. Great for calming the immune and nervous systems for faster recovery of illness.
