Different cultures have different traditions that we find practiced throughout our business and we welcome the opportunity to learn about these traditions and the reasons that they are practiced.
Smudging is the generic term used to describe the tradition of what some people call the sacred smoke bowl blessing.The "bowl" can be a metal bowl or is sometimes an abalone shell. Native Americans believe that burning sacred plants in the bowl and fanning the smoke with a feather while repeating different chants/prayers chases the negative energy and restores balance to a house. This practice has been referred to as a "spiritual spring cleaning" and is sometimes done when a house is being listed or as a welcome for the new residents.
People who practice yoga sometimes burn sage as a part of their relaxation technique. The smell of sage is sweet without being overly perfumed and the smoke wafting thru the house seeks to bring peace, balance and tranquility to the residents as it replaces the negative energy that may have existed in the house.
Sage sticks or loose sage leaves can be purchased at a metaphysical store or through sites on the internet.
We find the traditions of many cultures fascinating and welcome the combination of traditions old and new in our real estate practice.
