smudging mantras

smudging prayers

one-oh-one

how on goddess green earth did the native americans discover the wondrous power of lighting sage? 

i use their art of a simple smudge when i sense negative energies around me.

smudging: to purify a space, object or person by burning sacred herbs, like sage, alfalfa, and palo santo.

native americans smudged to call on the spirits who will drive away the low vibrations and stuck energies in their presence.

so, whether you sense these "negative energies" or not -- you will feel refreshed as smudging re-aligns your space and your being in a state of harmonious balance. and it feels gooooood.

it feels nice to pray in case you are experiencing blocks or feelings of unease, and smudging is just an extra tool who's scent will release negative ions to improve your mood -- aka opening up inner peace and creativity!

and our ancestors believed that if we allow our herbs to burn, we may be able to connect with our lineage as smell triggers memory. so who knows what may unfold. 

here are prayers you may recite after you blow the flame and you wave your smudge stick that glows red with the rising smoke:

a native american prayer

creator, great mystery
source of all knowing and comfort, 
cleanse this space of all negativity.
open our pathways to peace and understanding
love and light fills each of us and our sacred space
our work here shall be beautiful and meaningful
banish all energies that would mean us harm
our eternal gratitude
- the medicine wheel garden, e. barrie kavasch

universal modern prayer

may the energy around me clear
only with the vibrations of my own
may all negative energies be released
as i remain here in this space in peace. 

my go-to prayer

(though I adlib it every time... it usually goes something like this)

dear angels and divine light, 
please remove all energies that do not serve me
i call forth the consciousness of (sage/palo santo/herb)
to work with my team and fully cleanse all negativity and heavy density around me
anything that does not align with my highest being.
thank you for cleaning my energy to raise my vibration
opening up my mind to your creative vision
and align with my soul's mission on this day, according to your divine will.
thank you for clearing this space and helping me stay connected with you.
thank you. thank you. amen.

source: energy muse

Turquoise: This vibrant blue-ish green-ish crystal has been one of the greatest healers for centuries. For the ancient Egyptian inside you, this legendary stone was a protector of King Tut and Cleopatra. Or to feed the Native American you may have been in a past life, she was a healing tool and a sacred stone that linked a connection between heaven and Earth. She is a personal protector, a healer, a spiritual beauty, a good-luck charm for many ancient and modern cultures. Hold her in the palm of your hand or place her on your third eye while you meditate and all her energetic vibrations to gift you with a strong shield and the highest vibration of love, luck, and healing. 

 

Emerald:  Breath in positivity and love. Breath out negativity and whatever doesn't serve you with the power of the stone of May. Emerald's green rays emit successful and abundant love. Her power holds the desire to give love to not only others but also to your own self. Plus, don't be surprised if her energy brings people into your electromagnetic energy field who want to give you more love, as well. Allow her spiritual vibration to remind you to welcome more positive people and experiences while simultaneously letting go of negative people and experiences.

mantras for anxiety : english + sanskrit

A chant for the remover of obstacles…

eh hem, Ganesha:

Position yourself into a comfortable easy seat with your legs crossed.

Spine tall (even against a wall).

Place both hands over your heart. 

Visualize the image of Ganesha at your third eye.

Repeat.

Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha

Translation: salutations to the remover of obstacles -- (aka Ganesha).

Chant this mantra allowing your mind and body to release any anxiety or stress and fall into a state of pure zen and contentment. 

Repeat in your mind, out loud, or listen to Deva Prema chant this 108 times. 

Sanskrit mantra for anxiety

After you rise with the sun

stretch

sit up

and repeat the following Sanskrit mantra first thing in the morning to release or prevent anxiety from arising during the day

Om Ram Ramaya Namaha

This mantra manifests positive thoughts and feelings. 

And releases negative energies that keep our vibrations low. 

Feeling anxious about an event coming in the near future? Repeat this to conquer it!

English Mantra for Anxiety

When the event that brings you anxiety or stress occurs, 

repeat

This is only a paper tiger

Paper tiger: someone who at first glance seems to be in charge but who, on closer examination, is completely powerless. (vocabulary.com)

A reminder that that thought is not you, not a part of you, has nothing to do with you. It is a distraction to lower your vibration. But it has nothing to do with you unless you create the story that it does. You are the ultimate writer of your story. Is that thought that is bringing a sense of dissatisfaction, anxiety, unease, unworthiness really worth it? Paper tigers aren't as quick as you, just so you know.

hello, intuition

You knew it.

You knew that they were not telling the full truth.

You knew you shouldn’t have gone for him/her.

You knew your grandma was hiding the cookies.

But…

You wanted to trust them.

So you ignored what you knew.


Your wise intuition is not just a nudge you feel or that uneasy feeling in your gut. Your intuition is the sixth sense that guides you in the right direction. She is your best and most honest non-physical friend that gifts us many signs to follow the right path. (Side note: gentlemen… feel free to replace all she's + hers with he's + his).

 

And if you listen carefully, you may save yourself a lot of grief and uncertainty.

What are you ignoring right now or who are you giving the benefit of the doubt to?

We all have our own unique way of tapping and tuning in to listen to that voice.

Some may get that strong feeling in their gut on most occasions. Others may experience her voice more strongly in their heart. Some may get ideas. Some may hear the voice in music. Some may feel strong gusts of winds. Or goosebumps -- eh hem, “truth-bumps”.


And the more often you listen, the louder she becomes. And the other voice… that silly ego of yours…

 

Softens

Quiets

And becomes a bit more distant.

 

You may think she’s a little offended you listened to the other voice.

But she’ll never be offended. Even when you can’t hear her, she will always whisper helpful notes... even as the other voice is screaming. 

And yes, there are some conscious beings that have her dialed in at most every moment. But were they born this way? Most likely not. They were likely heavily influenced by the noise of society too... stirring feelings of guilt, shame, jealousy, sadness, depression and any other toxic feeling brewing inside. However, they had to train themselves to shift their mindsets to tune in to what their really feeling with a conscious detox to get rid of all negative energies that no longer serve them. 

 

Here are five lessons we’ve learned from Masters along our exploration to connect and listen to our intuition... especially in times when we need her most. 

 

ONE

Meditate.

Walk in nature.

Touch the leaves on the trees.

Smell the flowers.

Observe the flowers. 

Listen to the birds.

Observe the birds. 

Mindfully sip your coffee or tea.

Journal.

If you can’t hear her when you’re seeking an answer… if your mind is too noisy and crowded… you just need some space. A breath of fresh mental air.

Slow down.

Give yourself permission to calm your hyper mind for a few moments. Get still. Give yourself permission to be still.

Imagine all the noise floating out of your head... out of the room... tell it you’ll get back to it later, because this is a time for you.

Breathe.

And allow yourself a moment to just be.

Maybe… you’ll hear her.

 

TWO

Never. Ever. As best you can...

Go to bed angry or in negative spirits.

It may be easier to listen and feel your intuition when your emotions are light. When your body feels lighter.

Anger, despair, jealousy, guilt, regret, shame or any emotions that do not make you feel good, are weighted feelings. These burdens may increase in weight as you sleep. Even if you “slept on it” and feel fine as you rise. You only slept with it.

Allowing these feelings to stir, creating more negative thoughts in your subconscious... Creating a shadow that will come to the surface further down the road. A shadow that covers the voice and light of your intuition.

Talk them out with a friend.

Write all that negative energy in your journey.

Think of things you are looking forward to in the near future. 

Say out loud what you are TRULY grateful for. 

Place your energy elsewhere so it doesn’t build a bed in your mind as you sleep.

 

THREE

Becoming in tune with your body’s relationship with food. She’ll be louder the more in tune you are with -- not only your mind -- but your body too.

Learn to know what foods make you feel good.

There are so many tools that are used to discover what foods work best for your body -- depending on our personality.

Food Journaling. If this means you need to start food journaling to bring awareness to your body’s reactions 30-60 minutes after a meal so you can avoid another bloating, fatigued or moody episode… then you’ll learn, maybe that type of nut butter doesn’t make you feel good after all. It will take time. I mean… who wants to eat the same food every day? So you’ll discover so much about your body’s relationship with food. And it will change over time. But food journaling is a good start, and it becomes a successful daily practice for some people. We’ve noticed the majority of those people end up becoming the most in tune with what works for their body... and what does not. Journaling is one of the most powerful and approachable tools to connect with the guidance of your body and your intuition.

 

Practice Mindful Eating. If this is not a concept you’re familiar with, it may be the most simple practice for you to start with. Simply, choose just one meal a day -- breakfast, lunch, or dinner -- where you choose to purposefully bring awareness of each bite of each meal without distractions. No TV. No books. Maybe… no humans.

Just you.

Your meal.

Savoring each and every bite.

Chew slowly.

Notice the taste and consistency.

Notice how much you enjoy (or don’t enjoy) this meal.

As you mindfully chew eat the bite, listen to your body. Listen to the guidance within during and after your meal. If you didn’t feel your best, you’ll instinctively know not to reach for that meal again.  


FOURTH

This is important.

Very important.

Believe she is always there. This will never fail you. But truly…

Believe.

We really can’t provide steps to make this happen. With all the practice of tuning in and listening… one day.. you will.

 

FIFTH

This is may be the most important.

Very important.

Listen.

You may hear of feel an answer your ego may not agree with. But you KNOW it’s right.

Don’t suppress it. Ask it. Ask if that is your ego talking or YOU. If she gives you the answer again, and you feel that that is right -- even if it’s not what you want. Take action under her guidance.

If it’s hard to listen, you may need to clear thought space by circling back to the first lesson above, but listen.
 

She’s ready to be heard more frequently. Don’t dismiss the truth-bumps or any other feeling you’ll receive after reading this. She may even be giving you some sort of sensation now… listen.

 

Feel free to ask any questions below.

Attract Prosperity

Clarify for desire by writing it in one sentence. (If there are multiple things, make a list)

I am the creator of my universe

I am the writer of the story 

I am the painter of my canvas

Knowing this with full faith, I know I can achieve this...

State out loud your sentence or your list... FEEL like it's already yours. Know it's there.

"What do I need to know about this situation right now? Guide me, tell me, what do I need to do"

Listen.

energy cleanse for your home

SAGE

We soak up tried and true ancient rituals. Even what may seem "woo-woo" to most modern day beings, we see it as a beautiful ancestral wisdom we choose to honor and carry on. Dried white sage has been used for thousands of years, particular by Native Americans, to clear old, unwanted energies and dark forces that a space may be harboring. Almost every night or after new visitors leave, we mindfully sage our whole home saying out loud, "what's mine is mine, what's yours is yours, please release all energies that no longer serve my highest good in this space." 

SALT EVERY CORNER

Salt is an absorber of negative energies that can be used to cleanse your home. Sprinkle salt in the corners of every room and sweep it up every few weeks. We like to use thick Himalayan sea salts -- (because they are more aesthetically pleasing for our space). 

LIGHT CANDLES AND INCENSE

The powerful aromas of candles and incense will lift your spirit immediately, releasing negative energy that may be attached to you. We highly recommend jasmine or nag champa. It's extra powerful to light them around the new moon. We have them placed in selected areas around our home. However, some people prefer to dedicate a altar of high vibes where they may chant mantras and positive affirmations to ignite the space. 

CLEANSING CRYSTALS

Bathe crystals in the sun for a few hours or soak them in salt water overnight to clear their energies. Place them around the house in different areas, allowing their vibrations to sweep away whatever is not serving you... what energy is not yours. Plus... crystals are gorgeous. 

THE SONGS OF POTS + PANS

This, we have yet to try... and it may seem too "woo-woo" for some of you. But many cultures shake out pots and pans -- or play them like instruments with a wooden spoon or hands -- to scare away any negative energies that do not belong in their space. Try it and see if your space feels lighter. (Also, let us know how it goes... we're intrigued).

grounding crystals

unnamed-1.jpg

 

selenite

This is a gemstone that works for anyone and everyone. It is energy cleansing, and extremely grounding. I’ll often lay on the floor in Savasana and rest my selenite block on my stomach. After a few minutes of breathing, I feel the tension release and like my digestive system is flowing properly. It is very helpful for those of you who have trouble sleeping to put selenite on your chest and feel the calming energy as you relax deeply.

 

fluorite

This gemstone absorbs negative energies very quickly. It is very calming and energetically balancing. I will often wear fluorite if I am in a busy city, or have a conflict with someone. It is also a good stone to have in your car or any areas with high radiation. Since this stone works as an energetic sponge, it should be cleansed often.

energy cleansing rituals

Screen Shot 2017-12-31 at 12.44.41 PM.png

showers

When you’re in the shower, feel the warm waterfall onto your body. Imagine that each water drop is golden light, washing away any energies that no longer belong to you. Anything negative vibrations flow into the drain as you call in more light.

sage smudging

This is an extremely powerful practice to do before bed,  or after you have been surrounded by a large group of people. Light the sage and stand with your eyes closed for a moment. Take 3 deep breaths, observing your energy. Move the sage around your entire field and imagine a waterfall of light pouring through you. This light surrounds you and envelops you in a loving energy. All energies of the day are cleared as they melt back into the earth. Draw a circle of light around you and say the affirmation, "circle of light please come about. Keep the loving energy in and the energy that does not serve me out." 

baths

Set up a simple bath with Himalayan salts. Salts are very purifying and cleansing. Bring in your favorite candles, essential oils, and relaxing music. Before you step into the tub, visualize that the water is filled with so much healing love. Set your intention before stepping in. This is your sacred time that you so deserve to care for yourself.

prayers

Every night before bed, imagine all of the energies that you encountered that day. Every person, environment, or situation you dealt with. Visualize putting all of these people and energies into a bubble of pure light. Surround them with so much love. Now step out of the bubble, and say “what’s mine is mine, what’s yours is yours. Thank you for disconnecting me from all energies that do not belong to me and are no longer serving me. Return them with love to their original source.” Imagine the bubble rolling away from you. The only energy you will carry to sleep is yours
