In the subatomic world of subtle energy, rituals of smoke for Space Clearing have been around for thousands of years. From Zulus to the Maori's to even present day Catholic churches (wafting frankincense), these rituals help clear negativity and carry our prayers to the heavens. Sage has been used by numerous cultures long ago, from Celtic Druids to eventually European Witches and Native American Indians.
But is it cultural appropriation to use these herbs? Here are some guidelines:
The burning of herbs itself for Space Clearing is not inherent to a specific culture, however the term "smudging" should be avoided if you are a non-Native American. This is a blanket Anglo term which in itself fosters a dynamic of oppression when the dominant culture (in this case Colonial) uses their own expression for rituals that have hundreds of other Native American names and nuances and by doing so, it minimizes its cultural importance.
When you engage in Space Clearing in a way that is done by honoring another culture through educating yourself, adapting it with respect and not doing damage, it is a culture exchange. If you were to start using Native American chants, symbolism or clothing, it is degrading and unethical.
Not only is the sage that we provide supporting a community that has the utmost respect for this herb, but it is gathered while in meditation and shared respectfully and with deep appreciation and a prayer of thanks for it's ancestral roots.
Finally, when you respectfully learn about the traditions and cultures of the Space Clearing rituals and wellness tools you energetically resonate with the most, make it your own. Don't underestimate the power of raising your vibration and the ripple effect it can have in this world, especially now.
