Day of the Dead
The Day of the Dead is a public Mexican holiday that is festively celebrated in order to give honor and reverence to their dearly departed friends and family. This holiday is not localized to the Mexican culture. It is also acknowledged across the world in many different cultures with variations of name or style of celebration.
For example, in France it’s known as “All Souls Day”, and the more familiar “All Saints Day” is commonly celebrated in the United States amongst those of the Christian faith. In the West African Yoruba tradition ancestors are referred to as Egun. There is not a particular day or holiday specifically set aside to revere our Egun as this is simply acknowledged as a way of life and encouraged to do on a regular basis.
However, regardless of the difference in name or practice, these cultures all share the common intent of honoring their transitioned ancestors and friends with gifts, offerings, and affirmations. The key to the Day of the Dead is to gather in celebration as opposed to holding onto melancholy or somber feelings. This shift in consciousness helps us to see that they are not “gone”; but are in fact, still very much with us.
Our acknowledgment and reverence keeps their spirits alive and fosters a relationship of reciprocity. We give them what they need through gifts and offerings as they continue in their spiritual experience. They give us what we need via emotional comfort and spiritual guidance as we continue on in our human experience.

Smudging is a ritual for spiritual purification. It aids in clearing a space of negative energy within your home, your place of work, or anywhere you spend a great deal of time. Smudging can even be done on an object, or on your person including your hair. This helps to remove unwanted energy and restore balance and harmony. It’s all about creating organization, balance and serenity within a space or person.
When a smudge stick is used to cleanse a space it helps to renew old and stagnant energy and replaces it with a lively vibrancy. Space clearing is most successful when your intention is clear. This practice or ritual is something that we recommend at the Alpha Omega Store to do on a regular basis.
While smudging with a sage stick is most commonly used in space clearing it’s also excellent to use to enhance your intuition. The aromatherapy of this sacred herb enhances and activates your higher consciousness, therefore the sage stick is excellent to enhance your meditation practice or to use during your divination sessions.
Smudging is also highly recommend to use on newly purchased or hand me down objects prior to use. This can be anything from furniture, to clothes purchased at a Thrift Store, or newly purchased crystals. Just as you would rinse vegetables purchased at a grocery store once you bring them home, you want to keep all of the objects that you bring into your home sacred and cleansed and infused with your energy.
While you can smudge with several types of herbs or resins, the smudge sage stick offers ease of use, as it does not require charcoal, and it’s very potent and aromatic so you only need to burn it for a few minutes. Conservative use will allow you to have a highly effective and long lasting sage smudge stick. Be sure to get yours today on sale Today at the Alpha Omega Store by clicking here.
