Cleansing Your Spirit Native American Style by Cherokee Billie

In today’s modern world there never seems to be enough time.  We rush from the time we get up until the time we go to bed.  We battle traffic, work, deadlines, e-mail, family matters, and love life.  Everything we have to get done in 24 hours!  There doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day.  People used to work a 40 hour week, now the work hours go into your private life and many people have to spend time on the computer or phone continuing work at home. 

People often come to me for psychic/spiritual advice, and they are totally burnt out.  They cannot understand why they cannot stop crying, yelling at people, being angry, and feel totally confused.  The fact that they know something is wrong is the first step to turning their lives around.

Frequently people ask me about cleansing their spirit, and I give many different ways to do it. Here are two of my favorite methods.

You can do this by writing down the situation or the name of a person on a piece of paper; also you must have a heat-proof container and matches. Place the paper in the container and light it on fire. As you watch the smoke go up, picture what you have written about going up into Spirit and releasing it from your life. Native Americans have always used smoke in sacred ceremonies because of the belief that smoke is going up to the Great Spirit.

You can do this as many times as it takes until you feel you have released the burdens you have been caring. You will find yourself feeling much lighter each time you do this.
