This is an old traditional way to cleanse and bless a room, using a smoking stick of incense or bundle of herbs. You can use a number of different actual materials for smudging, such as:
A bundle of dried white sage or
A stick of sandalwood, cedar or rosemary incense
Light your smudge of choice, and blow out the flame so that it's smoking nicely. Walk around the room, letting the smoke flow to each of the corners of the space. If you want to bless a whole house, then just walk to through each room repeating the process.
Visualize the smoke pushing out the negative energy and leaving a clean energy behind. With each room, repeat:
By this smoke, I bless this space,
By my words, I clean this place.
Native American Prayer
A Sioux Prayer
Oh Great Spirit,
whose voice I hear in the winds,
and whose breath gives life to all the world
I come before you,
one of your children.
I am small and weak.
I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever
behold the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have made,
my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise, so that I may know the things
you have taught my People,
the lesson you have hidden in every leaf and rock.
I seek strength not to be superior to my brothers,
but to be able to fight my greatest enemy, myself.
Make me ever ready to come to you,
with clean hands and straight eyes,
so when life fades as a fading sunset,
my spirit may come to you without shame.
~Translated by Chief Yellow Lark - 1887

Blessings on this fine machine,May its data all be clean.Let the files stay where they're put,Away from disk drives keep all soot.From its screen shall come no whines,Let in no spikes on power lines.As oaks were sacred to the Druids,Let not the keyboard suffer fluids.Disk Full shall be nor more than rarity,The memory shall not miss its parity.From the modem shall come wonders,Without line noise making blunders.May it never catch a virus,And all its software stay desirous.Oh let the printer never jam,And turn my output into spam.I ask of Eris, noble queen,Keep Murphy far from this machine.- Zhahai Stewart, 1988

White Candle Spell for Blessing
This candle spell is meant to bless a specific person or people.Items Needed: White candle - plain or human shaped Pin, Exacto Knife, or other candle carving instrument Blessing oil or holy oilOptional: Photo, personal item, or peron's name written on paperInstructions:Get a white candle - either a plain one (offertory, pillar, or taper) or a figural one in the gender of the person you want to bless.Carve the person's full name on the candle, then dress it with Blessing Oil or Holy Oil.For more power, you may place a name-paper of the person, or a photo, or some personal item of theirs (such as a bit of hair or a snippet of clothing) either under the candle or next to it. One easy way to do this is to place the paper or personal concerns under an overturned saucer and put the candle on top of the saucer.Burn a portion of the candle every day for seven days, pinching it out between burnings. As you light it each day, say this:[Name], may you be blessedMay all good things come to you\May nothing whatsoever harm youMay your heart be lightMay your travels be safeMay your health be goodMay your mind be soundMay your friendships sustain youMay you be blessed in every wayIf you have a special request for this person (such as that they find a lover, get a good job, come home safely from a war, or whatever), just add it to the list.Some people use a large pillar-type candle and keep it going for longer than seven days.They may make a habit of burning such a candle every day or once a week - on Sundays, for example - for as long as their friend or relative needs help, even doing so for months at a time.If the candle is large and it is to be burned in this way, it should be re-dressed with Blessing Oil or Holy Oil once a week: after the initial dressing, you can drop a tiny bit of oil into the "well" or hole created by the flame in such a large candle just before lighting it each time.
