Join shamanic practitioner and author, artist Katherine Skaggs to learn about No Smoke Smudging with Flower Water.
Katherine will teach you about Agua de Florida, as well as the flower waters made from palo santo, tobacco, kananga, rose, and orange to clean and clear your space, and that of others. You will also learn about a pusanga or love potion, and how to use that to attract blessings, love, and good fortune.
Flower water is an excellent way to smudge when you can’t burn smudge and use smoke to clear. With flower waters plant medicines are infused into alcohol and water, prayed with and sung into, used with intention, to clean your energy, raise your frequency, clear trauma and fear, as well as to bless and bring protection.
Agua de Florida water is the go to for shamans in Peru, and many places in the world. It is a mixture of a variety of plants. Many shamans, shamanic practitioners, and medicine people will pray into this flower water for general or specific prayers to heal and to clear bad energy (Hucha as the Q’ero call it), and to bring in uplifting energies of the plant spirit medicines as well as the prayers and intentions of the practitioner.
Using flower water as a daily smudge is an excellent way to keep your energy high, and to clean away worry, fear, and fright that is rampant in our world today.
Open your flower water, then as with all your allies, thank it for its powerful energies that are good in cleaning energy and raising your vibration, pray into it with a heart centered prayer and intention for wellness, shift, balance, love, peace, etc. Then pour some into the palms of your hands, rubbing your hands together, and then bringing up to breathe in deeply three times. Do so gently as this is very strong with alcohol and can be intense.
Once you have breathed in the flower water, use your hands to move through your energy field, above your crown, to the back of your neck, and behind you (intentionally sending to your heart and all of your back), and through your front, sending to your third eye to awaken your vision, to your throat to express your creativity and truth, to your heart for full heartedness, to your solar plexus to activate your power, to your 2nd chakra to support your creativity and intuition, and to your root, that you are grounded in this world with love. Place your hands onto any parts of your body that need extra healing and attention, intentionally sending this energy deep into your physical body and cellular structure to receive this energy and come back into balance. Use your hands and imagination to then send out into your room, to your animals, your loved ones, your land, to your work place, and to the world at large for healing and peace.
You can do a blessing offering anytime with this practice to clear, to bless, and to give gratitude. Give without condition. Those who would like to receive will do so in their right timing.
Other flower waters you can use are Palo Santo, Tobacco, Kananga, Rose, Orange, Lavender, and any assortment of home made flower waters, such as the pusanga/love potion.
I also have another company I carry that makes other plant medicine flower waters. Some that she creates are made from White Sage, Clary Sage, Sweetgrass, and Cedar to name a few. She makes an amazing Palo Santo mist that is one of my favorite.
