An approximately 4 inch white sage stick.
Saging yourself - Fan the smoke around your body from head to toe. Focusing on areas where you feel there are blockages or where there has been/is physical, emotional, or psychic pain. Visualize the smoke lifting away all the negative thoughts, emotions and energies that have attached themselves to you. You can either use your hand or a large feather to circulate the smoke.
Saging a room - Walk about the edges of the room fanning the smoke, giving special attention to the corners and the places behind doors.
During healing work - Fan the smoke over the person. This clears out unhealthy energies and brings in the special attributes of the herbs. You may also direct smoke to each of the person's chakras and as you do so visualize each chakra coming into balance as it is purified.
Cleansing crystals or other objects - Place the objects in the smoke or fan it over them. If you are clearing your crystals prior to programming them thank both them and the sage stick for aiding you to achieve your goals.
Always make sure you have fully extinguished the sage stick using a fireproof bowl or shell. You may snuff the stick out in a bit of sand or you can just press it against the bottom of the receptacle. Never leave burning objects unattended.
