Baths have long been revered for their sacred healing properties. Spiritual Baths are an ancient method of spiritual cleansing. These magical baths cleanse our auras & aid us in purging all the mental and spiritual dirt we may retain.

Spiritual baths are a powerful mystical remedy that utilizes the purfying power of steam along with herbs, essences, & spices to heal, restore, & rejuvenate us inside and out. While normal baths are taken to cleanse our bodies, these baths are taken with the specfic intention of removing unwanted energies & ridding oneself of negative vibrations. The purifying power of a spiritual bath an restore harmony & balance to your life.

A good spiritual bath may be the perfect way to end this year & bring in 2016 with a soul that’s fresh, clean, & ready for a new start.

There are many types of spiritual baths. My favorite {and one of the simplest to perform} is the vinegar bath.

Vinegar has long been used has an agent of protection & exorcism. It banishes evil, misfortune, negativity, illness, & even pesky germs. It’s pH balancing properties provide natural toning and conditioning to skin and hair. Adding it to your bath will provide body & soul benefits.

Step 1

Prepare Your Station.

Prepare any ingredients you will be using for your bath {in this case, it’s just vinegar, but other times it could be a combo of herbs, oils, etc.} If using herbs you will need to either pre-soak the herbs in hot water or prepare a bath tea bag for the herbs to sit contained in the tub, while the water takes on herbal essence.

Step 2

Cleanse Your Body.

Before partaking in any type of spiritual bath, you must first ensure that your temple is clean. Take a normal shower or bath previous to any spiritual bathing to rid yourself of any physical dirt.

Step 3

Prepare Your Bath.

Fill your tub with warm water. Add your ingredients. If using pre-soaked herbs strain your mixture to pour in the herb infused water. If using herbs in a bath tea bag/container, add these herbs now and let them soak for about 10 minutes before you get in. {If pre-soaked, you don’t have to wait any}. In the case of the vinegar bath, simply add 7 to 9 caps of vinegar to warm steamy bath water. Feel free to light candles or do anything else you’d like to set the ambiance for healing.

Step 4
Take your bath. Hop in and enjoy the warm water and steam filled with healing elements surrounding you. As you indulge in this peaceful experience, keep your intention stayed the spiritual cleansing/healing you seek. Trust the process to accomplish its purpose. Do not use soap or any additives in this bath. You may perform the motions of washing, using the infused bath water all while holding the intent in your heart that you are cleansing your soul. Remain in the bath for at least 15 minutes for maximum benefit.

Step 5

Air Dry.

Once you have exited the tub, Do Not dry with a towel. You may drape a robe around you or some other comfortable clothing if you wish, but allow your body to dry naturally.

Step 6

Enjoy & Let Simmer

Enjoy the soul lifting effects of your bath. It is best to wait 12 to 24 hours before your next bath.

Again vinegar baths are my favorite, as they are easy & effective. But I looovvveee herbal magical baths for spirit as well. Depending on the combination of herbs there is so much variant magical soul work that can be accomplished with a spiritual bath.

If you’ve never tried a spiritual bath, start with the vinegar one & tell me what you think!

Happy Bathing & Happy New Year!

Power to the Pussy! All Hail to the V!

The Yoni is both sacred & divine and should be treated as such for maximum health & joy. This power-packed organ is highly resilient, but also sensitive, and must be properly cared for to flourish at its full capacity.

I am very careful what I allow on or in my Yoni. I eat healthily, I do not wear tampons, I wear yoni eggs for spiritual & physical yoni maintenance, and I’m sure to do my kegals to keep my yoni operating in its proper perfection.

As stringent as I am a about what goes near my sacred space, you know that any product I use down there must be to a high standard. And Goddess Body Yoni Oil is so quality it not only meets but, dare I say, exceeds this standard.

The Sacred Art of Letter Burning

.{The Sacred Art of Letter Burning}.

burning paper 02

Fire is a sacred and holy element. It has the ability to purify as well as solidify intention in the spiritual and physical plane.

I once used fire in a purging ceremony, where we burned up words/cards/representations of things we were purifying from our life for good and would have no more of. It was a very impactful, cleansing ceremony. One that I’d say I am still feeling the positive effects of today. However that is not use of fire I will speak about today.

This fire is set with a whole ‘nother intention. The intention to communicate your thoughts and desires concretely and directly to your higher self, your spiritual guides and the cosmos.

Letter burning is a direct path of communication with your spirit guides that is not obstructed by the mixed messages of muddled thoughts.

Letter burning is a spiritual task I have commenced numerous times, and each time, no matter what, the communications I send out are answered and the desired expressed are granted.

Here’s my step by step guide to Letter Burning:

Step 1:

PREPARE YOUR LETTER.

Genuinely contemplate the message you want to send to Spirit. You may brainstorm and write down bullet points first or even pre-write the whole letter using a phone, laptop or some other technical device. However there is a certain energy that hand-written communications carry that I find to be powerful in this practice. In this preparatory period, is important to ponder things you are grateful for as well as things you desire. Once you have the basics of what you want to communicate clearly outlined in your mind, you are ready for the next step.

Step 2:

WRITE YOUR LETTER.

Now is time to put pen to paper. Begin this process wherever you feel most comfortable doing so. I find it calming to burn incense or herbs such as sage or mugwort to bring peace and clarity to the space where you are now preparing to open your soul to the Universe. Open your letter in a spirit of gratitude and thankfulness. Show genuine respect and appreciation for all that you do have, before asking for more. As you begin to delve into your desires use positive verbage. Don’t harp on about what you don’t like and what you don’t want. Focus on what you do. Be as specific as you possibly can in your goals/desires without limiting the cosmos. This is to say that in our human forms, we have no way of knowing all of the possible outcomes of any give situation. Who is to say that what we have envisioned is the best? I like to ask for what I want very specifically in faith that I will receive it, while coupling it with a request that Spirit grant me the highest good/highest possible outcome in the area of my concern. Pretty much to say “Spirit please grant me this or better”. Only Spirit would know if there is something better for us than what our desire may be. And we wouldn’t want to close ourselves off from that possibility either. We must find balance in being specific in our desires while trusting that the Universe knows exactly how best to deliver what we want and need. End your letter with an attitude of gratitude as well.

*sidenote: your letter does not have to be a certain length either. It could be a 4 page letter or a paragraph. Nor do you need to have some massive desire to be attained. Some people even write letters requesting things as simple as their car keys to be manifest/found (hey it works!). Just as long as you feel like your message is clearly communicated to Spirit.

Step 3:

BURN YOUR LETTER.

First things first bring your letter to a place that is safe for burning. You need a safe, controlled fire source, a place where smoke can breath, and something to catch the ashes. In my personal practice I have burned letters over a large pot as well as over a grill.I almost always use a lighter or a match for my safe controlled fire source. Don’t be afraid. This should not become anything close to an uncontrollable blaze. But safety is key anytime we are dealing with fire. Make sure the entirety of your letter is burned to ash. That the fire as touch all parts of your words. Through this powerful elemental process, your words are being carried to the spirit realm. Let the ashes amply cool before disposing of them.

Step 4:

HAVE FAITH & WAIT TO RECEIVE.

As you have communicated your intentions into the cosmos, trust that it has truly heard your expression. Trust that the Universe is conspiring to grant you good…the highest good. And remain confident in this fact as you await its response. Do not become stagnant, of course. Continue to do what you can to move forward toward your goals and do not let fear creep in. The Universe is ready and willing to answer your plea. You can have what you desire!

*If you follow all these steps and for some reason your desire does not come to pass, trust that the Universe has made the choice for your highest good. Something even better for you than what you expected is coming your way. Stay open to receive it!
