Cleansing Your Spirit Native American Style by Cherokee Billie



cleansing your spirit Native American style by Cherokee Billy in today's modern world never seems to be enough time we rush from the time we get up until the time we go to bed we battle traffic work deadlines email family matters and love life everything we have to get done in 24 hours there doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day people used to work a 40-hour week now the work hours go into your private life and many people have to spend time on the computer or phone continuing work at home people often come to me for psychic spiritual advice and they are totally burnt out they cannot understand why they cannot stop crying yelling at people being angry and feeling totally confused the fact that they know something is wrong is the first step to turning their lives around in our high-tech modern world we need an antidote it is time to turn back to the ancient teachings of Native Americans which offers common sense an uncomplicated approach to life and a way to appreciate our existence frequently people ask me about cleansing their spirit and I give many different ways to do it here are two of my favorite methods releasing the past one of the most effective and simplest ways to cleanse your spirit is by releasing the emotional baggage that you are carrying on you you can do this by writing down the situation or the name of a person on a piece of paper also you must have a heatproof container and matches place the paper in the container and light it on fire as you watch the smoke go up picture what you have written about going up into spirit and releasing it from your life Native Americans have always used smoke in sacred ceremonies because of the belief that smoke is going up to the Great Spirit you can do this as many times as it takes until you feel you have released the burdens you have been carrying you will find yourself feeling much lighter each time you do this what is smudging smudging is the name giving given to the sacred smoke bowl blessing for thousands of years this ceremony has been practiced by Native Americans this is a powerful cleansing technique it is a ritual to remove negative energies and have them go up in smoke to the great spirit smudging can be used to cleanse your spirit mind and body it can also be used to cleanse a house building vehicle workplace or another person most common herbs used for smudging sage sage is great for removing negativity and for healing white sage is preferred sweet grass sweet grass is used for blessing after sage has been used it is used to attract positive energy the art of smudging the first thing to do is to make sure that the area is well ventilated and open up windows so that the negative energies have an easy way of exiting get a shell or any flat heat proof container it is good to have a feather to move the smoke away from the person or object that is being cleansed light the smudge stick and when you see a flame put the flame out using the shell or container and the stick will continue to smolder move the smoking stick around your body starting at the feet and use the figure 8 motion as you move the stick up your body continue this until you get to the top of your head at this point the energies have been released into spirit and you can then proceed to cleanse another person object or space you can do chanting or prayers as you use the smudge stick make it a sacred ceremony for yourself as the stick burns put the ash in the shell when smudging an area like a room house or car it is beneficial to acknowledge the main directions which are north south east west up and down continue to use the figure-eight motion and use the feather to move the smoke away and out through any windows it is recommended to smudge all Clauses closets and mirrors in a house as negative energies often store in those areas when you have finished smudging extinguish this dip the stick by dampening it with water crushing it against the shale are placing it in sand keep your smudge stick feather and shale in a special area medicine bag or on an altar start doing this and watch the changes that occur in your life you will be amazed at what starts changing if you would like personal and instruction on this sacred art contact me Cherokee Billy and I will be glad to teach you personally give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way Native Americans saying thank you for listening this is Cherokee Billy Oh

    Hi there. I saw this video and I thought maybe I could ask you something. I was looking for native american spirituality videos. I have been having dreams really awkward dreams where a Native American at a distance calls me with his hand to him. I hear and see an eagle also which is my spirit animal. I feel a special love and connection to eagles. Along with that I see my father who has passed away several years now and it was mentioned to me that he was some kind of Native American. I hear him in my dreams. Its not a scary dream but I would like an understanding of what this may be about. Also I live in the country and every night for about 3 weeks I heard a pack of coyotes each day and time they got closer and closer but now as of this week I don't hear them anymore and this was daily between 3 and 4 am. I have started feeling something in my heart and spirit about earth. I love nature and feel really close to mother earth as in the ground, dirt trees the air. Its all soo odd and different to me. Not sure if its just aging or if something/someone is sending me signals. I am a great believer in earthly spirits but inn not religious. Should I seek professional help?

    Lovely teaching. I have been using smudging for many years now and I attest to the effectiveness in cleansing the spirit, mind and body and preparing one for prayer, or other activity where one must have a clean heart, wisdom and focus. It is also vea very healing activity and can be done before meditation. I have used this simple by powerful ceremony in banishing negative energy for the house or objects or praying and honoring the four directions. Thank you.

    Can you tell me the source of the music you used in the beginning of this video?? It is of particular interest to me, and I can't even find the name of the song or other identification to look it up for more research. Thank you!

    Hello Ms. Billie, How do I clear a person of negative energy and help heal that person? I know that person will not be open to it! I need help or things might not work out, can you help?
