You may prefer to smudge with sage or sprinkle with water containing a cleansing or protective herb, or water energized by the full moon.
As you sweep or smudge, recite the following:
"Energy of a Negative kind Cleansed from this Space I have defined.
I cleanse this space of things that were. Space now to be where mind will stir.
I dedicate to Light and Air. Sacred space I here declare.
Dark and Shadow also here. Space Dedicated with no fear.
In this space I am to learn. Candles, incense I will burn.
Natural energy will abound. With or without circle east around.
Light and Shadows I will find in this space my thoughts enshrined.
A place to think with mind unbound. In sacred space that is new found.
I cleanse this space of things that were. Space now to be where mind will stir."
