    Not sure why. The women that came do do a clean out had some sort of big shell. They put sage leaves in it, lit it up & waved it about in every room with a feather. And they opened every draw, cupboard, box ... you name it. The whole process took about 4 hours & my house is quite small. I had to take all the dogs outside until they said it was OK to bring them back in. They didn't slap fish together or dance around nekid, but they were pretty full on.
    Here is some info on the use of sage and the paranormal:-

    SACRED SAGE / Suggested Uses




    The following are suggestions for the use of sage for those of you not familiar with the custom. Some words of caution: sage burns very hot, and the embers stay hot for a long time. Always burn sage in a little metal container, an abalone shell, or some type of ceramic or ironstone dish. Put some clean sand in the bottom as an insulator, and NEVER use glass. When you're finished with the sage, cover it with sand and leave it in the container you were using. When you want to use the bundle again, just shake the sand off.

    When you light the sage, let it flame and then blow the flame out at once. It's the smoke you want....not the fire.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    FOR HEALTH:

    Science has discovered that the healing properties in sage come from antibiotic agents they have identified. Some people boil sage and drink the water as a tea. Many have found relief in the smoke for sinus congestion and pain, and even for migraine headaches. For this purpose, break off a single leaf, and breathe the smoke through your nose. Use common sense here. If this bothers you....Don't Do It.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    FOR PERSONAL CLEANSING:

    If your energy is low, or you feel depressed and out of sorts, or if you have been around negative people in a negative situation, try cleansing your entire energy field. The most effective way to do this is with a broad, strong feather, or a group of feathers in a fan. Have someone sweep the smoke over the entire outline of your body, front and back, head to toe. Don't forget the top of your head and bottom of your feet. If you don't have someone to do this for you, pass the sage bundle around your own body covering as much area as you can. Breathe deeply and calmly while doing this, and you'll notice the difference at once.

    Before going to bed, try using sage to clean away the physical and emotional grime and stress of the day. For a peaceful night's rest, break off a single leaf, and burn it carefully in your safe container. Be sure there's no paper around, or anything that can catch fire. Remember to blow the flame out at once. You don't want the fire......you want the smoke.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    FOR GROUP CLEANSING:

    If you're in a group where this would be appreciated and welcomed, this is an excellent practice. First of all, use the entire bundle to cleanse the room, or the area where you will be. Be careful of dropping hot embers if you're inside as they will burn a carpet. Start at the back of the room, walk along each wall reaching as high as you can, and then criss-cross the center of the room letting the smoke rise at its own pace. As you walk, ask that only positive energy be present, and that the group be blessed with experiences for their highest and best good. Then cleanse each person as they enter the room as described above in Personal Cleansing. Ask that they be made peaceful, and blessed with positive awareness and learning.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    FOR HOUSE CLEANSING:

    To cleanse and bless your house or apartment, again use the entire bundle to light. Open your front door. Go to the back of the house, and cover as much of the room as you can reach. Be sure to hold the bundle as high as you can. Don't forget the corners of the rooms. Work from the back toward the open door at the front. Go into every room, including bathrooms, closets, utility rooms, kitchen...everywhere. When you get to the front door, say "Anything not here for the highest and best good of those who live here, be gone. You are not wanted, and you are not welcome. This home has been cleansed and blessed." Then walk out the door, close it, and sage around the door and door frame. Leave the bundle outside to burn itself out. Make sure you put it on dirt, or on something that will not burn.

    Sage is a wonderful gift from the Earth. Use it wisely, and it will serve you well.

    I hope this helps for those who are interested!

    No problems GSD4Ever, it is always good for people to have a bit more knowledge on these things and hopefully an open mind.

    Sometimes I don't know what to think about paranormal stuff, but I don't discount it, I've had a couple of things happen to me that leaves me wondering.

    When I was a child, I used to go into my pop's bedroom which faced the street and perch on an old chaise lounge that was next to the window, waiting for mum to come home. Of course I perched on the foot end that didn't have an arm rest across the bottom, just the back bit. One day I shifted a bit too far and lost my balance, falling backwards - my head was heading straight for the corner of the dresser. Next thing I felt 2 hands on my shoulders gently pushing me back up to a sitting position. It all happened so fast, but I looked around wondering who did it, I was alone in the room. I have never forgotten the feeling of those hands on my shoulders.

    When I was property hunting about 5 years ago, I went to look at a place which is in the same area as I am now. The photos looked great, very pretty house and I was eagerly looking forward to viewing it. The moment the agent drove on to the property I had a cold chill run through me, and I said to her "I'm sorry, I want to leave immediately, this place gives me the creeps", but by then the owners had come out so I had to get out of the car. I forced myself to do a quick look around but felt like screaming. I just had the feeling that something really really horrible had happened there in the past. The agent did tell me that their grandmother had broken her hip (there was a little cabin she lived in) and they didn't discover her for a day, which was sad enough, but I knew that wasn't what I was picking up. Occasionally I drive past the place and it still gives me the creeps. I've never felt so strongly about a property, hope I never get that feeling again.

    That was your guardian angel looking after you.

    I know what you mean GAG. Have lived in a few places that have had other residents in them. Some good, some not so good. We have even one entity move house with us. It seems that it is attached to my OH.
    One day I will have to do something about it.

    I thought I'd add a bit of an update, I'm not preggers

    OH doesn't like to talk about this kind of thing to any one except his mom so untill now I haven't had the full story.
    It seems the spirit loves me but hates OH and MIL.
    MIL has done a cleansing but hasn't helped. OH tried telling it go but it got stronger with bad feelings, it didn't like being shown love.

    MIL thinks it's come into the house with my father and is attracted to the anger both her and OH have.
    She thinks it may help if I do the cleansing.

    In both cases of Bordeaux's OH & MIL and Boh's OH, I reckon the body cleansing instructions as described are the ticket for solving this .... if they're up for it. Reading about the body cleansing, I was reminded of Robert Downey Jnr. After he did his time in jail, dried out & sorted himself out, he used to do the whole sage cleansing thing, every time before he stepped on to a film set. He may still be doing it, because his life seems to be on track & he's doing some of the best work I've ever seen him do since "Chaplin". There has to someone to all this. "Positive thoughts" can only take you far I reckon ....

    MIL has done a cleansing on herself but it was with oil so I'm going to pick up a sage stick tomorrow so she can try it again.
    I'm sure OH will do it too, for him to actually be talking about it and to try to get it to leave himself it must consern him.
