    how often should you sage

    Post  Crys on Wed Sep 28, 2016 12:43 pm

    Hey there,
    I am new to this forum and I was just curious how often should you sage/cleanse your home?  Should this be a personal preference or a once a week thing?

    My son who is 8 has had a couple nights the past week of experiencing some things and gets quite scared, even though I try to explain to him that he has nothing to be afraid of.  
    Now my son has woken up gone into the kitchen and seen a ghost peeking at him around the wall, needless to say it scared the living out of him :rfth: but when I sat down with him told him that he had nothing to fear he actually asked me to do my smoke stuff around the house.  I am not sure if just the sight of me doing it makes him feel better or actually gets rid of anything.

    I know we have a few spirits in the house I can always hear them walking around upstairs when we are all in the living room but I thought saging was to get rid of negative energy it wont get rid of the ones that are waking around and visiting will it ?

    Although it's well meaning, the idea that something is being done for protection, sometimes creates the idea of there being danger of harm without it. In this way, the reassurance that it creates is only temporary as each time its used, it reinforces the belief in the bad thing that it is protecting against.

    There are some fears that have to be faced in order to find out that they are not really a danger.

    The "smoke stuff" works, do it as much as needed.

    Hi Crys, Welcome.

    The sage smoking is cleansing and not necessarily protecting, it will rid negative energy (chi  ki etc) and replace it with high energy, but to get rid of other things such as spirits you need something else.

    Do you talk things through with your son, explain what you believe etc so he can feel safer?
    Do you use crystals? Do you use any other forms of protections or shields?

    Hi Crystal and thank you :love:
     
    Yes I talk to all my children regarding what I believe and some chose to believe in their own things but they always listen.  I do tell my youngest that he should not be afraid

    I have crystals all over my home as well, I also use the white light for protection.

    In my own opinion (no one else has to listen or believe) I do believe that there are bad/mean things out there but I believe that they feed off fear and if you don't show them fear they cannot feed off your emotions.
    That being said try and tell an 8 year old not to be frightened its not easy lol

    we had a little chat and by the end he felt a little better and hasn't had any issues for a bit.

    That sounds like you have everything under control and just want reassurance then :)

    We Navajos use cedar to protect ourselves from ghosts.
