This ritual is best done when the Moon is in a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces), but it can also be effective at other times.
Water is the element associated with the emotions so this is a great thing to do when you’re feeling exhausted, sad or even just out of sorts.
Make sure that the bathroom is warm and that you have a warm, clean towel.
Run a warm, pink salt bath that is deep enough for you to relax fully into. You can add a Bush Flower Essence to the bath, an Essential Oil and some fresh flowers for a special touch and if you want to complete the ambience light some candles.
Because of its association with the heart, a Rose Quartz Crystal is also a nice addition.
Make sure that you are not going to be disturbed for the next 20 minutes.
Step into the bath and relax. Take deep breaths and close your eyes. Tune into how you are feeling.
Don’t worry if you find it difficult to relax at first. Just lay in the bath, even if your mind is racing, and continue to take deep breaths.
If you have a crystal with you, you may wish to hold the crystal whilst you take deep breaths. Direct the breath to your heart.
If you have added an essence to the bath imagine that you are breathing it in as you take each in-breath and imagine the energy of the essence surrounding your body and infusing with your energy; holding and healing you.
Take 3 deep breaths in and out.
Take another deep breath in and on the out-breath say the words “I am at peace”.
Take another deep in-breath and on the out-breath say the words “I am loved”.
Take another deep in-breath and on the out-breath say the words “I am always supported”.
Imagine the overwhelming/sad emotions that you have been feeling going into the water around you as you breath out.
Take another deep In-Breath and as you breathe out say the words “I am surrounded by loving friends and family in my life”.
Continue to do this saying anything that comes to you and that feels appropriate in the moment.
Once you feel that you have completed this remove the plug.
Lie back and feel the water drain away around you. As it does so, feel all of the emotions that you placed into the bath draining away with it; disappearing down the plug hole.
Lay in the bath until it has completely emptied.
You may feel tired afterwards so take your time getting out of the bath and remember to extinguish the candles.
You may want to go for a lie down or a sleep if you are able.
