Divine Incense: Creating Energy Flow In Sacred Spaces

Spiritual Connection To Incense:

When Spring hits, the first signs I usually notice is the fresh smell of the Spring air, especially when I pass by my little park daily and start to realise that the air is now filled with new aromas of Spring flowers and plants that are embracing the new season. It feels magical!

A few years ago, while working in Barbados with my partner, we used incense every day to cleanse our stall space of negative energy - attracting people and also repelling others. It was then I realised that incense can be so much more than just a way to make an environment smell divine. Incense has been known for many generations in several cultures to have meaning and promote energy on so many levels!

It is important to keep in mind that when buying incense, choose high quality incense that is natural and if you are using it in an enclosed space or room, keep the windows open so that the smoke is not too concentrated and the fresh air can circulate and create flow.
