Searching for change? Not the kind that jingles but the kind that transforms. Are you willing to do things differently? The only way life is going to improve is if you put in “work”. Sometimes it’s not going to feel great during the process either but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Ride those waves. I’ve been clearing my space making room for renewed energy with wood sticks made from a sacred tree, bursera graveolens also called palo santo which inhabits parts of South America. Sage has been working for me but I heard about palo santo which piqued my interest.
In short, palo santo means “holy wood” due to its properties as they are believed to be healing, purifying, and cleansing among other wonderful benefits. Natives to South America have used palo santo for centuries since the time of the Incas for healing, cleansing and clearing negative energy among other uses. I was pleasantly surprised to see that my local crystal shop sold palo santo. I’ve been using it for a week now before and during meditation, to charge my crystals and jewelry, and just while vibin’ to music to encourage a sense of peace and calm. It’s also believed to enhance creativity.
I like to burn it while I’m journaling too. I let my intuition guide me to using it when I feel necessary. So far so good. Always do your own research as well. The above links will give you more detailed information about what palo santo is, where it comes from and how to use it. You can also find many other sources of information on palo santo. I’ll keep you posted on how it works for me.
Love and Light,
