The energy that is Us is created of many different layers and is a complex and intelligent system that works most well when align ourselves mental, physical and emotional bodies into harmony and love, however we can aid the process by doing these simple and ancient things that are always a benefit to ourselves.
This ritual box was created for individuals to begin bringing ceremony and ritual into ones personal life. The cleansing of energy via smoke, salt and water has been used for eons in many traditional tribes throughout the world.
CEREMONIAL SMUDGING BOX:
- Large Smudging Feather (feathers vary) - Native Australian smudge stick - Cinnamon, Australian Sandalwood & Ecuadorian Palo Santo - Premium Salt Bath (salt from natural formations), Botanical & Crystal Blend 260g - Ark/ Aura Energy Spray
During these times there is much floating around the ether, there is a lot of energy that can lay dormant and stagnate within the body and the energy field. We may pick up on the collective energy. To be in our optimum vibration it is important to have strong energetic hygiene that we tend to continuously. Using these tools can assist you in clearing your space.
The energy systems within the body work with the outer systems in tandem. If we are able to clear the energy around us in our Ark/Auric Field then we enable a flow through from the physical body and mental field to move more freely. If the space around us is not functioning and free to do so it can back log energy.
Salt has the ability to draw out physical toxins from the body, but also lift up and out toxic or stale energy. From what I can see there is an specific energy 'body' (I could say protective and organised barrier ) that lays over the skin, when we bathe in pure salts and water it clears this barrier to enable it to pass energy efficiently between the energetic systems.
I smudge and bathe almost everyday. It has become a part of my normal life.
Example of Ceremonial Ritual - Create space by putting on some calming music, attune the energy inwardly. Draw in some deep breaths into the body, releasing and relaxing the body as you do so. Do this for 5 minutes. Really focus on drawing the breath deep down into the pelvis space, then releasing it through the body and shoulders and neck as it is released.
-Spray auric spray all around the body and room OR burn your wood or smudge stick of choice, always remain present and safe when working with any type of fire. Ensure that you have a bowl under the flame to catch any embers. Using the feather, sweep the smoke around the body and auric field or space in which you are wishing to rid of any energetic debris or unwanted, sticky and stagnated energy. Giving blessings on the bird who offered their feather for this use.
- Light a candle and dim the lights, run warm bath, place the contents of the bath salt into the water and ensure the salt crystals dissolve through the water, Thanking the salt and the plants and botanicals for their gift to you today. Place the crystal in the water and give thanks also to the spirit of the stone for assisting in your cleansing. Stay in the bath for 30 minutes , focus on breath work and the body, easing any contractions or tightness that is storing within the body. Place focus on the mental field, releasing also worry and doubt and daily stress, release this. Know that the water will absorb all the energetic debris you are willing to pass to her. She loves to soften us. Mind, body and heart. When you are ready thank the Sacred Waters which were offered to you for healing on this day. Bless her as she is released.
- Get dressed stay warm
FOR TEA - Place desired amount of tea in to the pot, connecting with the colours of the plants and forming relationship with them. Pour hot (not boiling) water over the tea, stir the tea in the water. Let it steep for 3-5 minutes. Sit down and pour the tea into your cup. Be present with the beautiful fragrance of the tea. How does it feel to sit with the plant. What do you feel arise. Sip it. Feel the energy of the tea moving through you noticing what it does for you. Ask the tea to be specific in its message for you and open yourself to receiving. -Move into meditation after the tea, a drum journey or of the like.
Give thanks a praise for the gifts you have given to yourself and the tools you have used.
You may do the ceremony to your own liking. You may just use the smoke when necessary. I recommend, everyday!
I truly hope this box brings cleansing and healing when needed
