Yes you may be fine with and defined by your spirituality. However as with much in our lives, often one sets aside some of the really importance practises. All the nagging tasks, and life’s stress compete for the foreground, and beauty, meditation, and centeredness slip into the background like a blurry landscape in the background.
Are you on the weight los treadmill? Yes the perfect diet keeps landing in your lap. Diligently you begin hoping and holding your breath that this time you can do it and achieve your goals. Stop. Breath. Notice the ddifference? Breathe more. Just thinking of dieting can stir up ages of food anxiety. What would God say? (Substitute your faith’s supreme being’s name). Goddess loves you. Right now. Feel God’s compassion rush through you. Feel your body relax completely in this love. Say, “Thank you.”
Use this exercise often. Now you are ready to begin your food choices. Native Americans throughout New Mexico, often use a smudge stick of sage for blessings and clearing energy. Sometimes in Taos New Mexico you can find a sage smudge stick for as low as $2.00. It’s scent may be fresh and strong. Most likely it has been harvested by a local pueblo native american. Some people following traditional ways could have prayed while walking to find the sage, prayed for the glorious day and light of Taos, and even sang or prayed while preparing the bundle. Walk with the spirit who wanders these lands, and feel the rootedness of the ages. Feel glad in your heart for the clean crisp air, and all who share this earth with you. You can find a smudge stick like this at Now and Then, an upscale resale shop in Taos NM.
Once you have found your smudge stick, use it. The process is very simple. Light it so it starts to burn. After one minute or so blow out the flame. The sage will spout out a lot of smoke. Use your hand to direct the smoke around your whole body. Breath in and exhale. Feel your spirit curl within as a seed about to sprout. Breath in again and feel the energy dance slowly throughout your body. Keep bring smoke to blocked or tight areas in your body and let spirit gently ease away the pain. When finished, dunk the stick in some water to put out the fire. Give blessings to all in the world, including yourself. Have a light and happy day.
