“In my dreams I was told to smoke and salt the bathrooms. I took the smoke for saging. Any idea what the salt means?”
“Yes, that makes sense; your dream guides are giving you good advice. Energy can accumulate in any room and feel heavy, stuck or stagnant — especially if you’re sensitive. In fact, spirits are drawn to bathrooms due to the running water; water is a conductor, and it can feed their energy.
“Sage or palo santo can be used for smudging. Sage is a dried herb; palo santo a sacred wood. Both can be burned — the smoke, combined with your intention or prayer, is effective at clearing energies. Palo santo has a lighter, sweeter scent if you are sensitive to smells (sage can smell a little like marijuana). Look on eBay or Etsy.
“Salt can be placed in a little bowl in a room for cleansing. Or you can sprinkle it in the corners of a room. Discard the salt after you feel it has had the desired effect. Alternatively, you can mix salt with water in a bottle and spray the room. Refer to the following website for more details: http://www.spooksinvestigations.com/cleansing-you-and-your-house.html
“I generally recommend clearing your home once every six months. But I encourage you to be the barometer: If the energy feels thick in your home, or you notice the presence of new spirit energies, then it’s a sign to re-smudge your space.”
