I learned about smudging and incense long ago and have burned incense in particular daily for at least a decade, as an awareness of God & offering 'UP in smoke’ my intentions & prayers to God. Painting sessions are always started by lighting a small candle, incense & usually a joint so I can really contemplate colour before I paint.
I try to smudge every few months.. I smudged the evening I moved into this house.
I was gifted a Cedar smudge for Christmas which I appreciated, enjoyed & it inspired me to make a ‘tiny smudging prayer book’ created with love…
Click on the image to print- you could make and print & give with a smudge you create, if you want to educate another - it’s a good start. The prayer inspired by one I found on line & simplified for the tiny book , created with love & ‘cleansing intentions’. You should do a little research first, it’s quite interesting. I think “our” minds could use a little cleaning, since we’ve all cleaned our toilets & floors a little more than usual.
This tiny Smudge Prayer was joyfully created to share with you.
I believe in the power of prayer.
Printed on one page, you cut down the red line (in the middle) and fold so - it read’s like a tiny book, a fun tiny project for any idea. Enjoy! The next created printable will be some pretty birds to print & hang, it’s a grey winter so far.
I’ll be attempting to make at least one printable a month in 2021
Prayer is the most important tool for your mission to the world.
People many refuse our love or reject our message, but they are defenceless
against our prayers.
~ Rick Warren
