Bath Series #3-Intention Baths

What is an Intention Bath:

An Intention bath is used to remove negativity, celebrate a season change, to ask for abundance or protection or other symbolic reasons. They are also know as spiritual baths, bath rituals or chakra baths.

Intention baths are religiously all inclusive. For example Christians get baptized in water to wash their sins away or be cleansed. In Islam Ghusl is a mandatory ritual cleansing. Hindu’s also make a holy pilgrimage to be cleansed in the Ganges river. People recorded the the first spiritual baths in the Grihya Sutras that were found in Pakistan region where the Indus valley civilization lived.

How do you use an intention bath?

First, figure out what you want. What is a goal you have?

Visualize it. Exactly how you want it.

Think of a Mantra that represents what you want. Use I am________________________________________

For example: I am successful, I am a business owner, I am protected, I am safe, I am abundant.

During the Bath:

Once you have all the supplies run your bath water, light the candles and lock the door. As you add ingredients to the water speak your mantra.

Get in the bath and visualize your goal. Spend time visualizing each detail of your wish. Speak outload what you see. Express your gratefulness for what you have currently and repeat your mantras again. Breathe Deep. Have good feelings. Smile, laugh and enjoy the vison.

After the bath

You may want to gather the flowers, herbs, or crystals that were in the bath so they do not go down the drain. Take your time getting redressed and keep imaging your life how you want it.

Go on with you day!
