What draws us to sacred waters? Why does the ocean seem so cleansing and purifying?
The experience of sacred baths brings in the art of bathing as it’s practiced in many countries including: China, Japan, India, Turkey, and Greece. As we do some research, we find that this ritual of bathing can be found in every culture, in every land, and has been refined over the years. It is used to purify, soothe the soul, increase our health and vitality, develop sexual magnetism, open our intuition, and inspire our beauty. The most famous historical figure is Cleopatra with her beauty secrets in bathing, essential oils, and lotions.
Each bath is a personal spiritual journey to connect with your subconsciousness and create a spiritual bridge within your soul to find clarity and wholeness. You will be given tools to raise your vibration and amplify your intentions, within your bath. The sacred bathwater becomes a powerful transmitter of your desires and intentions as you are guided by your inner soul.
The average person spends a year and a half of their life in the bathroom. 66% of mothers hide out in the bathroom for quiet time. 47% of Americans contemplate their future in there. Now you can accomplish all that with positive intention.
Bathing in water is a spiritual symbol. Water is a conductor of energy. Many individuals have stated that they are more connected intuitively when they are showering or bathing. They receive intuitive information and/or creative ideas and solutions in the shower or bath. You may also notice that the shower and bath assist in relaxation and calmness. Many individuals will take a bath or shower to help them relax before going to bed.
A spiritual bath is a ritual that is used to heal, release, and energize our physical and etheric bodies. The ritual may include adding dried or fresh herbs, essential oils, fruits, flowers, and salt mixtures to your bathwater. The experience can include meditations, music, candles, rituals, etc.
I started taking salts baths as a pre-teen. This ritual was important to me and I remember my family not understanding my need to have salt baths. At the time, I was struggling with relationships at home and at school. The challenges of navigating the world as an empath lead me to crave sacred rituals without really understanding the gift that I was receiving from these sacred practices.
The Salts & Water
Salts hold a sacredness that most individuals take for granted. Salts assist us in cleansing our auras and bodies of negative energies. They have also been used in rituals, ceremonies, and as magic for protection.
The Dead Sea is known for its healing properties. People have traveled to the shores of the Dead Sea for centuries to soak in the salty waters. This water is filled with natural healing properties that occur naturally in our bodies. When we soak in water enriched with Dead Sea salt, it is known to benefit the body, inside and out. Some salts that you can buy in the stores have been processed and treated, losing the important minerals. You will want to find salts that contain their natural properties.
Water is often associated with the unconscious. When you dream of water, it is often symbolizing your awareness of your spiritual well-being and purification. Being in a bath or washed in water signifies emotional and psychological cleansing. Water has been used in rituals and ceremonies for centuries as a purification and cleansing process.
Water is a conductor and it will amplify the energies. Have you ever noticed that you receive intuitive information more clearly in the shower or bath? The water amplifies all the energies around you, and it is easier to tap into your inner guidance system when you are in water. It can provide powerful healing and releasing.
