Crystal and Smudge Clearing
To smudge clear a stone, place sage, cedar, or copal herbs in a shell or heat-proof container. Facing east, light the herbs and offer the smoke to the six directions, as outlined in "The Medicine Wheel" section in chapter 6. (If you have constructed a Medicine Wheel, perform this ceremony within the circle, using the central stone as your altar or table.) Have the stone to be smudged ready in front of you. When the blessing of the directions is complete fan the smoke over the stone, or hold the stone in the smoke. Pray to the Great Spirit in your own way, asking that the stone be clear of all harmful vibrations.
