Oct 04, 2014 /prREACH/ -- Halloween season is a time when people remember the scary stories and traditions of the past: ghosts, goblins, scary creatures from times gone by or from movies which have kept people on the edge of their seats. Many people feel particularly vulnerable at this time of the year and they turn to Ronngren for a Sage Clearing to remove ghosts, but Ronngren often finds that people's own feelings have manifested into negative energy in the home. There are no ghosts to be found.

When a Clearing is called for, Ronngren lights a bundle of sage, or a combination of dried herbs, and watches for the smoke to rise up. When the smoke actually starts to rise, it indicates the space has been cleared of any unwanted negative energy or spirits.

“I perform the clearing by lighting a bundle of sage, using a tradition that dates back eons, I watch the smoke; the way the smoke rises shows me the space has been cleared.”

She carries an abalone shell or a clay vessel with her to catch the falling ash, or places it in the center of the rooms as she moves through the area, asking any entities or undesirable energy to leave the space.

Businesses call for a Sage and Smudge Clearing when they start to see sales dropping, or a higher turnover of employees. People call when they are moving into a new home, or when kids are moving out of the house. And they often need a Sage Clearing after the death of a loved one, or a beloved pet.

Ronngren says, “The image of the smoke rising to heaven carrying a prayer, a wish or expression of hope, is part of our ancient memory. It's a time to ask for spiritual comfort, support, healing, guidance and protection. Now we can call in positive energy, guardian angels and guides to support the family in the future.”

Diane Ronngren's book is put out by ETC Publishing, based in Carlsbad, California. ETC Publishing has published two best sellers on the subject: "Sage and Smudge, The Ultimate Guide" by author Diane Ronngren (, and "Sage & Smudge, Secrets of Clearing Your Personal Space" by author Donna Stellhorn ( - both available at Both Ronngren and Stellhorn lecture on the subject and do private Sage and Smudge Clearings.

People often don't realize how much feelings of sadness, frustration, anxiety, stress and loss can affect their homes and businesses. Places they live and work become filled with the ghosts of their past choices, their losses and regrets. They may even mistake their feelings for a real ghost!
