In every TATEJONES order, there’s a bundle of sage and there is a reason why. 

Sage comes from the Latin word “to heal”. 

In ancient, indigenous, and Native American ceremonies where sacred plants are burned, the smoke of the burning sage is wafted around the space and body to bless and rid them of dense, stagnant, or stuck energy.

There is science behind it – When sage is burned, it releases negative ions, a natural way of putting people into a more positive mood. The stress-relieving aroma stimulates the mind and memory function. The leaves are stacked with antioxidants and soothing properties that help protect against free radicals. Scientists have also found that sage can clear up to 94% of airborne bacteria.

Weekly, we both sage our homes, ourselves, and our animals – it’s a form of personal (energetic) hygiene. Before you light up, open windows and doors to direct the path of the negative energy. Wear black. Shamans wear black to remain invisible to harmful spirits.  

With an abalone shell, feather or your own hand walk your path and waft the burning sage around yourself and space. Hit the high-traffic spaces, where you work, play, travel, and sleep – don’t forget the corners.

You should have an intent. we each have our own personal mantras that change and evolve with what’s happening in our lives.

And then it’s lights out.
