Thank you for giving us these sacred medicines to help cleanse and heal me, and to communicate with you today.
Creator, please help me to think good, and positive thoughts. Help give me strength to have focus and control over what I’m thinking, so I can choose to focus my energy on the good things I have in my life.

Creator, I ask that you help me to see the good in all things. Help give me strength to view things as they are in a positive way, and give me the optimism to focus my sights on the abundance around me that I am so grateful for.
I ask that you please help me to speak only words of kindness and honesty. Help give me love and compassion to only say nice things to myself and others.

Creator, please help me to feel good in my heart, and live positive thoughts. Help give me bravery to overcome feelings of fear, and focus on the good feelings.
I’ll now smudge the rest of my body to cleanse and purify it of any negative energy, and heal my spirit from any pains or trauma.
