A relaxing bath is a good way to reduces your stress and cleanse your body. That is what people usually do especially if they had a tough day at work or a tough day in general. However, there is this method of recharging your energy after being so tired all day. No, it is not called sleeping but it is called Spiritual Bathing. What is spiritual bathing? It is a ritual from Ancient Rome that actually cleanses your chakras, revitalizes your aura, and leaves you feeling more present, and in an extremely positive state of mind. This spiritual regeneration occurs not merely from the comfort of soaking in warm water, but from energies imparted by the powerful oils, herbs or crystals you have added to the bathwater. Unlike a regular bath with soap, shampoo and water that cleanse the body, a spiritual bath works to cleanse the mind and spirit, using powerful ingredients that charge the bathwater with healing vibrations that help you remove blockages, hurts, pains and situations that are no longer serving you in any constructive way.
How do you prepare a Spiritual Bath? First, clean your tub thoroughly. Second, remove all distractions; make sure your phone is on silent so you will not have to answer any calls or texts. Third, clean your body by taking a quick shower. Remember that Spiritual Bathing is not about physical cleansing but it is a method to cleanse your spirit. A better way to do that is with a clean body. Fourth, fill up your tub with water and the rest of the ingredients written below. Lighting an incense stick or a scented candle, playing a soothing music would be optional. Think of spiritual bathing as a spa day for your spirit. Fifth, soak in the water for 20-30 minutes. As you relax in the water, clear your mind of all unwelcome thoughts and focus on your intention to let go of all stress and negativity. There is no right or wrong way to do this – as long as you’re relaxed and enjoying yourself. Sixth, spiritual baths are strong, and therefore you should not overdo them. Twice a month should be more than sufficient to start. Your inner guidance will let you know if you need more.
What are the ingredients for Spiritual Bath? There are countless ways you can prepare spiritual baths with different ingredients of your own choosing. You can use just one or two ingredients or opt for even more. It is entirely your decision, so let your intuition guide you. But here are some very effective ingredients you can consider: Salt, Natural salt is one of the most powerful ingredients to release any kind of negative energies, thoughts and feelings that are proving to be blockages in your path. Pink Himalayan salt, natural sea salt and Epsom salt are great for this purpose and easily available in most grocery stores. Never use regular table salts because they contain anti-caking agents and have gone through a refining process that has removed many of the beneficial minerals. Rose water, Rose cologne or rose water makes an excellent spiritual bath to uplift moods and make you feel more self-love if you’ve not been taking good care of yourself lately. Throw in some rose petals (fresh or dried) for good measure and let the fragrance of the bath fill your spirits with new energy and appreciation of who you are. Goat’s milk, if you have been having a run of bad luck, then a spiritual bath with goat’s milk can help you turn around the situation. In a large bowl, add 3 cups of goat’s milk with a cup of holy water, sea salt and a handful of fresh parsley. (Parsley attracts good luck and wealth, and is also an herb associated with protection and purification.) Let the concoction sit for a few hours before straining the parsley out and pouring the remaining liquid into the bathtub. Baking Soda, Bicarbonate of soda, or baking soda, helps to clean negative debris from your aura, and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth as well. Sesame seeds, if you’ve been worrying about finances, then a spiritual bathwater infused with the vibration of sesame seeds (soaked for an hour in boiling water and strained) can help remove blockages and bring more abundance into your life.Enjoy spiritual bathing and remember that this method of bathing only works if you believe it does.
