How Does it Work?
1. Cleansing Your Mind- Preparing your mind is essential for a spirit bath, allowing your mind to go to a place of mind and cosmic bliss. This allows your mind to transfer negative energy into positive energy. Play Mediation music of your choice to allow your mind to set free and allow yourself to go to a place of divine peace.
2. Preparing the Bath- I use two cups of Epsom salt ,salt helps detox your body and pulls the negative energy from your mind. I use a few drops of lavender, and I place a few chamomile tea bags or fresh chamomile in my bath. I sometimes use a few fresh rose petals .I use warm to hot water to relax my joints and muscles.I normally soak in the bath for 30 mins-1 hour, sometimes longer.
3. Aromatherapy- I light candles such as blue,white,purple,and lavender candles.
White Candles- Destruction of negative energy.
Blue and Deep Blue Candles- Mediation,Healing,and Happiness
Purples Candles- Spiritual awareness
Lavender Candles- Peace and Intuition
