Spiritual Bathing Ritual
There's no question that a warm and relaxing bath at the end of a day of work is a great way to restore your energies. But what about a spiritual bath?
A spiritual bath may be a whole new experience for you and it should be seen more as a ritual. In fact, it comes from African-derived traditions such as Santería and Hoodoo. Spiritual baths were seen as a ritual to cleanse your chakras, revitalize your aura, and leaving you feeling more present, and in an extremely positive state of mind. Root-workers, Hoodoos, Shamans, and conjurers of all sorts have long turned to the therapeutic and mystical properties of sacred baths to enhance the quality of life and to affect selves, others, circumstances and the climate. Spiritual baths are often prescribed for specific purposes such as drawing deep soulmate love and large amounts of money. These baths are also popular for facilitating healing, cultivating wisdom, eliminating negative conditions, uncrossing and reversing spiritual attacks, providing protection, increasing personal influence and domination, and creating success.
