Many people have felt "out of sorts" over the past week, reliving old issues, trying to resolve long-standing illness, or dealing with relationship problems which we thought we had solved.
We are entering a time of massive clearing and change that is drawing us towards the necessity for deeper solutions to our challenges, both personally and globally.
Astrological indications show that we have the opportunity now to tackle issues that we may have felt were insurmountable. Transformation and Regeneration are key words now and for the next 3 weeks.
We have resources we may draw upon during these troubling times.
These are the elemental energies of our planet...earth, water, air, fire....these are in the realm of the devic kingdom. Understand that these entities also are ruled by higher intelligences, and it is these ruling forces which can be invoked to assist in transformation.
What does this mean exactly? The simple acts of taking a bath, or sitting by a wood fire, can be transformed into healing ritual events.
The key is within you. It is your Intent.
The cleansing ritual of water can be personalized according to your own tastes, however, I have found the following useful; Obtain mineral salts of any variety, epsom salts, baking soda, batherapy, etc. Purchase essential oils which cleanse the aura; lavender, bergamot, rosemary, sage, sandalwood, basil...etc. Make sure these are essential oils and not fragrance.
For additional cleansing help use bentonite clay in the bath as well.
minerals salts 1/4 to 1/2 cup
bentonite clay 1/4 cup
essential oils of your choice 10 drops.
While drawing the bath, light candles. Turn off all artifical light. If there is a window in the bathroom, crack it to allow old energies to escape. Turn off phone and make sure your space is quiet and private.
Before entering bath, invoke all sacred energies, especially those of water. Ask that the water be infused with healing energy, which will help resolve and carry away negativity.
When bath is desired volume, add minerals and clay. Invoke the earth elementals to cleanse the body mind and spirit. After entering bath, pour in essential oils. These comprise etheric, fiery and watery energies. Request their help in cleansing the aura.
It is also helpful to use a loofah or ayate cloth in the bath to thoroughly cleanse the skin. This opens the pores and helps in the release of toxins, both in the aura and in the body.
While bathing, imagine that the bodymindspirit is releasing and resolving the issue that you are dealing with.
Meditate or merely breath deeply and slowly, breathing out your problems. Breathing in healing.
Invoke the elementals of air to allow the heavy thought forms to move out through the window.
When the bath is done, rinse with clear water, while thanking the elementals for their assistance. This bath ritual is amazingly healing when done with the proper focus.
Tomorrow I will discuss cleansing rituals using fire.
