    What are the effects of Radon? Could it be Radon?

    I’ve smudged my house when the kids were really acting up out of the ordinary (But they were also really small and claiming to see and talk to people that we adults could not see) so I smudged the entire house. the kids quieted down and the atmosphere did feel different. Maybe it’s just psychological, but hey, whatever helps, right?

    Smudge it! what have you got to lose? I barely finished reading this before I was googling where to get supplies in my area! I think I need to do the same. I knew from the first day in our house that it wasn’t going to be home for me for some reason. Since then we have had a multitude of problems. From fires to floods, house troubles ( albeit minor ) and constant septic issues * ahhh the joys of acreage ownership :S

    I am skeptical of all that type of stuff. But I come from a very New Age-y family. And I also feel like it cant hurt to do something positive. Besides, I love rituals. They fascinate me.

    That being said, I smudge regularly. I am really into sage and an incense called Nag Champa Super Hit. I also like burning sweet grass (it’s Native American, not marijuana).

    I also have a lot of crystals around my place and meditate regularly.

    People always say my place has great energy so I guess it is working. None of that stuff can hurt. I say give it a try.

    I know. I’m so ashamed. But I still have a healthy skepticism.

    I also do yoga and have a mezuzah. But I wrote my own prayer in the mezuzah. I just use it for mindfulness.

    I buy my sweetgrass from Native American festivals. But I have seen it at Tibetan shops and head shops.

    Personally…I think it’s all silly…but I am not so arrogant to say I know anything for sure…

    I say it can’t hurt and very well might help. I worked in tribal health for many years and smudging was a fairly regular activity. I also heard stories about the “ancestors” visiting the children because they’re open to that kind of thing (just saying maybe Aprils kids were spot on.) Whatever your beliefs, you obviously feel that your house has some bad juju going on with it and this could be the perfect way to take care of it. That closet thing alone is super creepy. I’m not sure where you live in New Mexico, but the Indian Pueblo Center in Albuquerque is fascinating and probably has good resources for finding the sage and learning about smudging. Of course Google probably has that too but the food there is amazing and they have 2 or 3 different kinds of fried bread.

If you don't comment, then I'm just talking to myself -- and I do too much of that already.
