Smudging is a wonderful ritual and powerful way of giving gratitude for all that is above us and below us. I have been asked many times for the prayers I use for smudging and the directions for the actual ritual itself.
If you have never participated in this ritual, this month of Thanksgiving is a perfect time of year to begin. Smudging is deeply rooted in gratitude for the food we eat on the feast day we share with family and friends.
I have created a less than two-minute video of my daily practice. I also have a ritual-for-smudging with additional information. You can smudge inside or outside; there are no rules. There is no right or wrong way to do it. The ritual of smudging is simply a beautiful way to say, “Thank you.”
With love to you,
