Lyrics
namaste, namaste, namaste, namaste

Smudging is the common name given to the "Sacred Smoke Bowl Blessing", a powerful cleansing technique from the Native American tradition. It is a ritual way to cleanse a person, place or an object of negative energies or influences. The theory behind smudging is that the smoke attaches itself to negative energy and as it clears it takes the negative energy with it, releasing it into another space to be regenerated. Sage is burned in smudging ceremonies to drive out evil spirits, negative thoughts and feelings and to keep negative entities away.
