Feathers are used for fanning smoke while smoke cleansing or smudging
Prepare the Smudging Materials: Gather your smudging materials, which typically include a smudge stick (usually white sage wrapped in a bundle) or loose sage leaves, a heat-proof container like an abalone shell or ceramic bowl, and a lighter or matches.
Light the Smudge Stick: Hold one end of the smudge stick and use the lighter or match to ignite the other end. Allow it to catch fire and then blow it out so that the smudge stick is smoldering, producing smoke.
Hold the Feather: Take the feather in your other hand, positioning it as if it were a fan.
Direct the Smoke: As the smudge stick smolders, use the feather to gently fan the smoke in the desired direction. You can use the feather to spread the smoke throughout a room or direct it towards specific areas, objects, or people you wish to cleanse or purify.
Set Your Intentions: While smudging, it's common to set intentions or prayers for what you want to achieve with the cleansing ritual. Focus on positive energy and thoughts as you move the smoke around.
Extinguish the Smudge Stick: When you're done smudging, carefully extinguish the smudge stick by pressing the lit end into the heat-proof container until it stops smoldering.
Store the Feather: After using the feather, you can clean it gently with a soft brush or cloth to remove any ash or residue. Store the feather in a safe and respectful place for future use.
