Course Description

Whether you've been desperately searching for a wonderful resource for learning the art of smudging or if your interest simply perked up after seeing the Long Island Medium wafting smoke around the house after visiting with spirits, I'm glad you've found your way here.

For thousands of years, people have used sacred smoke to ward off evil, to cleanse people and homes of negative energy, and to attract greater health, love, and peace. In Smudging for the Beginner, I walk you through straightforward and easy to understand explanations and instructions.

Within an hour you will have a solid understanding of what smudging is, why you want to smudge, when to smudge, and how to do it. You will be empowered to begin shifting from negative vibrations which bring weight and darkness into your life to positive vibrations that attract your greatest health and happiest existence.

Smudging is a spiritual process that uses the power of your intention, combined with sacred smoke, to cleanse, heal, and restore people, animals, objects, and homes to a higher and more beautiful vibration. I welcome you to join me today and witness the power of this simple ritual to change your life for good.

What are the requirements?

  • Smudging does require certain objects and supplies. This is described in detail in the course, but before moving forward, just a head's up that you will need to get a few simple things before performing the cleansing rituals: a candle, feather, dried sage and sweetgrass, and a fireproof bowl or large shell

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Use smudging to cleanse yourself and home of negative energy and dark residue
  • Offer this cleansing to help friends, family, and others
  • Quickly restore a feeling of balance and clarity after arguments and emotionally charged situations
  • Begin attracting positive energy into your body, mind, and spirit- blessing every area of your life
  • Ward off negative energies and unwelcome spirits

Who is the target audience?

  • Anyone looking to lift their vibration and attract greater light, love, and peace into their life would benefit from this course
  • This course is taught at an introductory level and not meant for those well versed in smudging and blessing rituals
  • Smoke is used in the smudging process. If you are sensitive to smoke, have asthma or other breathing difficulties, you will want to proceed with caution
