Turkey Tail Feather for Smudging
Turkey tail feather to carry the sacred smoke of sage or palo santo into the ethers.
May your hands be cleansed,
so that they may create beautiful things.
May your feet be cleansed,
so that they may take you where you most need to be.
May your heart be cleansed,
so that you may hear its messages clearly.
May your throat be cleansed,
so that you may speak rightly when words are needed.
May your eyes be cleansed,
so that you may see the signs and wonders of this world.
May this person and space be washed clean by the smoke of these fragrant plants,
And may that same smoke carry our prayers spiralling to the heavens.
How to use: Ensure all doors and windows are open so that old energy may move out. Light smudge stick, wait a moment, then blow out flames. Fan embers lightly to keep smouldering (may need to be relit). Use the feather to carry the smoke, to "wash" persons, property or spaces. Use a shell or pottery to catch ashes.
