How to Smudge with Sage & Native American Customs for Prayer

I’ve had several people inquire about practices and customs associated with smudging.  I decided to cleanse myself today so I thought I’d make a short video on rituals I’ve learned over the years.  This is by no means anything dogmatic.  These are just methods that I’ve learned over the years.  I’m Kiowa and Cherokee, and I’ve incorporated practices between both cultures and lessons I’ve learned personally through doing this routinely that work for me.  I hope you enjoy the video.  Please feel free to share with as many folks as you like, and if you have questions reach out to me in the comments.  Wa’do, and have a blessed day.

  1. Again, very interesting. The Kumeyaay performed this similarly, including times for cleansing a living space that had been seasonally vacated, as well as other spiritual, healing and ceremonial purposes. What I find interesting about it is the pervasiveness across the world. The burning of incense for spiritual benefit has been an ancient practice worldwide.

    Do you feel different once you have performed this?
