Water is one of the most important substances in our lives. Our bodies, which are largely composed of water, require daily intake to maintain health and well-being. Water not only sustains us, it has also been used as a fundamental source of cleansing throughout human history.
The act of spiritual bathing is intertwined with healing practices across the world. From the inviting waters at the Golden Temple of India (pictured below) to the subtle act of a Catholic Church Baptism, ritual cleansing remains a powerful force within the human experience. Whether seeking a clean slate or affirming a path already begun, such a ritual can serve as a focal point in making an auspicious move forward.
A spiritual bath consists of water infused with positive affirmations, as well as incorporating plants, stones, and essential oils to wash away the negative effects of anger, fear, anxiety, grief, trauma, troubling dreams, sadness, exhaustion, world-weariness, stress and confusion.
Based on a Mayan ritual, the bath is prepared in a bowl of purified water. First saturated with herbs and crystals, the water is filtered before being infused with a blend of essential oils. The client may choose to sit or lay atop a protective cover. An aura cleansing will be preformed through the use of prayer, incense* and the sprinkling of the prepared bath. The result is a truly lovely ceremony for those ready to release their troubles and receive an extraordinary experience of self-healing. Clothing should be comfortable and something you won''t mind getting wet. A change of clothes on hand is recommended.
