Spiritual Baths

Like many people, you probably enjoy taking a nice, luxurious, warm bath at the end of the evening. I know that I do! In fact, it’s one of my favorite daily activities, and if it doesn’t happen at least once a day, something feels off. But, how much thought and effort are you putting into these baths? Maybe you’re like me, and don’t add much effort at all. I  run my bath to the desired temperature, hop it, sit around for 15 minutes playing on my phone, hop out and that’s a wrap. So, what’s the point? Well, have you ever had a spiritual bath?

“Spiritual baths have been used by our ancestors as a connection with Spirit. The baths are used to cleanse your aura, or energy field, and that in turn will attract or manifest what one desires. They are also used to help remove or release blockages from one’s energy so that they can align themselves with the desires and plans of spirit (or one’s self),” instructs Free L’Amour from the company Let’s Get U.G.L.I. L’Amour is in the businesses of selling these wonderful spiritual baths with many different meanings an intentions behind each one, and she has firsthand knowledge of the usefulness of these cleansing spiritual baths.

Water is the element associated with the intuition, our emotions, our subconscious mind, and the Divine Feminine. When we enter the water, it helps us to relax. When you are in a state of relaxation, Spirit can then communicate to you while you are awake. In a state of relaxation, it is easier  to tap into our subconscious mind which can direct us, guide us, and show us how to manifest, release, attract, or remove,” L’Amour explains.

Recently L’Amour’s company sent me one of her bath kits- the Love Kit. This kit is useful for attracting love, loving oneself, or removing the blockages which allow us to love fully. Within it came two candles, a rose quartz, palo santo, and her beautiful bath mixture that was full of pink salts, sugars, herbs, oils and rose petals. I felt more loving just opening it all.

“The herbs, oils, and the salt color that have the energy for attracting love and/or releasing blockages that keep us from allowing love to flow to us. The benefits of using the bath are spiritual, emotional, mental and physical.  This bath helps us to balance mind, body and soul. Once aligned, then we become the magnets that we are to attract and manifest a life that we love.”

This takes our ordinary soothing bath to a whole new level physically, spiritually and emotionally. Physically our body is soothed by the oils that glide over our warm skin. Emotionally, our spirits are lifted from the earthy scents of the herbs, salts and rose petals. Spiritually, we are cleaned from the inside out allowing room for new and more meaningful things in our lives. We leave behind the plain bath of hot water and IPhone time, to a magical experience that transcends us higher and more into our intuition.

“Each Kit is prayed over under the power of the moon phases as I connect with the powerful energies and I direct those energies into each soul. It is like me touching in agreement with the person ordering and I know and fully believe that if ‘two or three agree’ we gain the intention is spirit (or the universe, or ourselves) immediately.”

If you want to try out one of I Am U.G.L.I’s kits, click here . There are many to choose from depending on the needs that you have right now. Add even more fun: Pick a few oracle cards before your bath like I did for something to meditate on!

Let me know in the comments about your bathing experiences, and if you enjoy spiritual baths.

Love & Light.

Mercury Retrograde

Another Mercury Retrograde is upon us, and I don’t know about you, but I can already feel that heavy energy. Or, maybe you sitting here wondering “What the heck is a Mercury Retrograde?” A Mercury Retrograde is where the planet Mercury, for a three week period, appears to be moving backwards in the sky. Star-gazers have been watching this for millennia. The effects of a retrograde are universal it seems, and if you begin to look at patterns of your life up against a calendar of retrogrades, you may find a pattern along with your frustrations.

Red Moon in Aquarius

Thankfully we had a soft, tranquil transition throughout the new moon this August, because we will really have needed it with the full moon coming. This full moon in Aquarius, the Red Moon, is going to be intense, shaky, and perhaps life-altering. Under this new moon, things will come to an end, adding in room for new beginnings. Full moons are usually filled with energy, but with an upcoming eclipse, we are doubling up on that fiery energy. Oh- let’s add to that- August 13th starts another Mercury Retrograde.  Go ahead and take a deep inhale, open mouth exhale. Good. Continue reading “Red Moon in Aquarius”

Embracing Your Moon Cycle (or, dealing with your period)

It’s at the doorstep. Maybe you don’t even need to mark it down, because the tell-tale signs always rear their ugly head. You’re snapping at your boss, or you’re crying over a Cheetos commercial. Your bloated as all hell and your pants don’t fit. Maybe it was the Cheetos. No, you know it’s on it’s way. Another month, another Moon cycle. She’s coming.

Full Moon in Capricorn

moon+magic+banner+2.pngTake a nice deep inhale through the nose, open mouth exhale with a nice, long sigh. Again inhale through the nose, rounding the belly, big and beautiful. Travel the breath up through the lungs, to the top of the throat, and hold. And exhale alllllll the way down, bringing navel to spine. Now you’re ready for your Monday morning. Continue reading “Full Moon in Capricorn”

New Moon in Cancer

The new moon is upon us in a few days, this month the new moon is in Cancer. As always, the new moon is a time of rest and rejuvenation, a moment in the month to reflect on all that has been accomplished, and a time to soak it in. The time of introversion and a focus on self care has peaked. Allow yourself to jump head first into this YOU time, remembering that self-care isn’t selfish. Do what your body is telling you it needs, and allow this to be a time where you put yourself above anything else. Continue reading “New Moon in Cancer”

Following the Moon Phases

Following the Moon Phases

The moon has a strong affect on our everyday world. From our tides and oceans, to our emotions and actions. Most people go about their day and their month unaware of what phase the moon is in, and how it is affecting and directing their life. They may be blissfully unaware of the fact that the full moon is making their emotions more intense, or that the new moon is causing them to feel withdrawn and introspective. We all know the ocean affects the tides, and being made of 75% water, wouldn’t it make sense that the moon has a large pull on us, as well? Continue reading “Following the Moon Phases”
