Once your palo santo smudge stick is lit, breathe deeply, stay connected, and guide the smoke toward the field surrounding your body, starting above your head. Continue swaying the smoke waves toward your body's energy, allowing the smoke to overtake every area of your surrounding field all the way down to your feet. Continue to smudge, or cleanse, your house along with your sage stick.
