Audio Transcription

Think of 4 people you love and feel safe with (they can be living or deceased).

Place 1 person in front of you.  1 person behind you.  1 person to your right.  And 1 person to your left.  Allow them to see you.  And allow yourself to see them.  

Welcome the memory of each being, feeling their circle of love and support surrounding and holding you, and bringing you closer to a feeling of wholeness.  

Sensing your heartbeat, take 5 deep breaths, and imagine you can hear the deep, steady drumming of waves rolling rhythmically towards a shore.

Indigenous Teaching from Philip Davis

As Haudenosaunee, we say the Creator gave each of us individually four messengers to walk with us and guide us in our journey, even when we don’t know where we are going to, they were gifted to us out of love and surround us with love our whole journey.

Smudging Ceremony with Isaiah Gilson

An image of Isaiah Gilson performing the example smudge that is being described in the text accompanying the image.

Envision this energy assisting/helping you. In this specific example smudge, envision this medicine, cleansing the energies that have attached themselves to you and all that you carry.

An Offering from Isaiah Gilson

Smudging is a good place to start learning/understanding ceremony, also understand not all Indigenous People smudge in the same manner, this is one way of many. Also keep in mind that there is no right or wrong way to smudge, only your way that feels natural and right to you, trust your body and spirit through your process. All of these steps are my personal ways of being, related to smudging and my general approach to my moment to moments in the day to day.
