Shoutout to Melissa (@curlz_n_kickz) for inspiring this new blog post. Honestly, I must say that social media can be a gift and a curse, but it all depends on your timeline. I choose to follow people who inspire me and who make me want to step my game up, but anyway, that’s a whole other topic. As I was going through my friend’s stories on IG, I came across Melissa’s story stating that yesterday, 11/11/19, was the day of the portal opening. Chile, this is another post in itself self but let me break it down real quick for you. It was a full moon, and google is your best friend when it comes to this topic. However, yesterday was a day where you could access higher divine guidance, expanded consciousness, incredible frequency, love, and healing. The number 11 is a sign of power, both mental and physical. I’ve always been curious and have been researching the effects of taking a spiritual bath.
A spiritual bath is a form of cleansing that is a reset button for your energy. When you take a spiritual bath, many people add such things as crystals, essential oils, herbs, flowers, bath salts as an act of blessing. These items are spiritually restorative, and when your body is submerged in the water, your body takes on their energies. According to Deborah Hanekamp, a seeress and medicine woman, you should spend at least 20 minutes in the bath, and as you soak, you should reflect on ways to serve and care for yourself. Once you exit the tub, you should feel recharged and have a new sense of your purpose. You can take a spiritual bath whenever you choose to, but many say you should during a full or new moon.
My purpose was to restore my energy as I was in a place where I was feeling a little displaced and wanted to release some things primarily from my past. I encourage you all to use Google and YouTube to get a better understanding of a spiritual path. Also, to see what items you may want to use for your spiritual bath. Below is a list of the things I used for my first spiritual bath, but in the near future, I want to add on items such as crystals, sage, and Florida water.
- Flowers (I used sunflowers and roses, but you can use whatever flowers you want).
- Rosehip + Jasmine Himalayan Bath Salt (TJ Maxx)
- Olivia Care Pure Essential Lavender Oil (TJ Maxx)
- Rosense Rosewater (TJ Maxx)
- White Tealight Candles (Dollar Tree)
- Mandarin and Neroli “Energy” Candle (Dollar Tree)
- Grapefruit and Bergamot “Positivity” Candle (Dollar Tree)
- Gratitude Box (TJ Maxx)
- Organic Rosemary (You can purchase from any supermarket)
During my spiritual bath, I focused on manifesting three things, which included positivity, good energy, and love. I also took the time to talk to God and let go of negative things that were having a toll on me. I also used my gratitude box and wrote down what I was thankful for. I wore a pair of amethyst earrings gifted to me from my parents. Amethyst also happens to be my birthstone and represents protection and purification, cleansing of one’s energy of negative influences and attachments, and creates a shield of protection.
A glass of wine was also on hand and my music of choice was “The Pure Meditation” playlist which can be found on Apple Music. I must say this experience was so amazing, and I feel so refreshed. As I stated, this is my first spiritual bath, and I have a lot more research to do, but every new and full moon this will be my routine. So I hope I encouraged you all to try a spiritual bath, and when you do, let me know how it went? Positive vibes, everyone!
