Do you know what smudging is? Many Indigenous Peoples have smudging ceremonies. Smudging is like having a cleansing smoke bath that purifies the persons body, energy, personal space or articles or the ceremonial space itself. Smudging removes the negative and helps to heal. Plants such as tobacco, sage, sweet grass, cedar, and lavender are burned, in a shell, and the smoke is directed with a single feather. It is believed that the feather possesses the spirit qualities of a bird- connecting the heavens above to the earth below.
