This braided grass was given to me by Lynn Welling after she used a tuning fork to tune all the rooms of my new home in Las Cruces. Like the sage bundles, one lights them, then blows out the flame. The power is in the smoke. I once attended a Curandero (Healer) conference at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. At the beginning of each session, healers blew on conch shells and then smoked those who wished to be blessed/healed. They passed the smoking bundle up and down the front, sides, and back of those persons.
