3 Spiritual Baths to Cleanse Your Aura From Negative Energy

article-migration-image-aurabath2.jpg

Regularly cleansing your aura and your personal energy is an essential act. Whether or not you know it, you come into contact with various people and environments, all of which have their own energy vibrations. Not all of these frequencies are high and positive.

Thus, your energy field is constantly taking in and putting out vibrations, some of the vibrations (including your own thoughts, as well as external influences) are low and will bring you down if left unchecked. While our energy body is constantly readjusting itself to bring our energy back into harmony, the negative energies can linger and build up over time. A monthly salt water bath is an easy and very relaxing way to cleanse your aura of negative energy.

We’ve mentioned other methods before, so why a bath? It’s because it’s a great ritual that combines to tie in body and spirit. When you immerse yourself in a ritual bath, you are participating in an initiation to open yourself up spiritually. 

Ritual bathing cleanses you from physical grime and negative spiritual grime, thus purifying both your body and your aura. It is a signal that you are willing to listen to your Higher Self and begin to trust something outside of your rational mind. It indicates that you are open to ask the universe to transform what you believe needs to be changed within yourself.

What is a Spiritual Bath?

Ritual bathing cleanses you from physical grime and negative spiritual grime, thus purifying both your body and your aura. It is a signal that you are willing to listen to your Higher Self and begin to trust something outside of your rational mind. It indicates that you are open to ask the universe to transform what you believe needs to be changed within yourself.

Taking a spiritual or ritual bath is meant to cleanse and protect a person spiritually; therefore, making it different from a normal bath you might do every day. There are very specific directions to follow in order to maximize the effect. Among these instructions is not using any soap, shampoo, or bath oil, etc. Once you step into the water, you are entering a spiritual experience, so it’s important to distinguish regular bathing from ritual bathing.

Benefits of Spiritual Bathing

Though they are different, spiritual bathing or ritual bathing can have great effects on your physical wellbeing, as well. According to Gateways to Inner Peace, here are just a few benefits:

 

  • The skin is an organ of elimination, and a saltwater soak will draw toxins and heavy metals from the tissues.

 

  • The essential trace minerals your body needs are absorbed through the skin to enhance your health

 

  • Skin conditions can be aided, as bacteria and other debris are also drawn from the skin, leaving it feeling fresh and rejuvenated

 

 

  • Circulation is increased, which your body can always use

 

Other important notes before getting started: this first bath is to be used only once a month, as it is very strong. It’s recommended to try it on a Friday close to a full moon for the best results. Energy therapist Lidia Frederico also advises, “do NOT prepare or have the bath around 6 am, 12 noon, 6 pm, 12 midnight. This– this includes half an hour before & afterward (so NOT between 5:.30-6:.30 or 11:.30-12:.30 for both am & pm)!”

3 Spiritual Cleansing Baths

To begin, clean the tub carefully. Take a shower before taking the ritual bath. Then, wash thoroughly with positive energy in the following ways.

Salt Water Bath

There’s nothing more relaxing than a nice, hot bath, and by adding saltwater, you can gain even more benefits for your skin. There’s a reason why they say that floating in the Dead Sea is so good for your skin, because the high salt content helps repair damaged cells, stimulate blood flow, and provides for a general detox. Bath salts such as Epsom salts are also an option as these contain other minerals that benefit the skin such as magnesium potassium. 

 

  1. Make sure you won’t be disturbed for at least an hour. Optional: light candles or incense or play relaxing music. Utilize what makes your aura lighter.

 

  1. Fill your bath with warm water. The level is up to you. Don’t make it too hot.

 

  1. Add 2-3 good handfuls of salt. Use a good quality unprocessed salt, such as unrefined sea salt or Himalayan salt. Do not use regular table salt, as this has added anti-caking agents and has been refined, which removes beneficial minerals.

 

  1. Optional: Add a few drops of pure essential oils for aromatherapy purposes. Lavender is a good choice, as it will also help you to relax and unwind, and is generally very safe.

 

  1. Soak for about 20-30 minutes. While you do so, make it your intention to let go of all negativity. You can pray for the release of any energy that you no longer wish to carry, or that is not for your highest good. You can also ask for spiritual support to raise your spiritual vibration.

 

  1. For the best results, air dry when you get out of the bath. You may use a towel for your head and put a robe on, but do not towel dry. If possible, don’t take another shower or bath for 24 hours.

 

  1. Take a saltwater bath no more than once a week. As noted, once a month may be the perfect amount of time in between.

By following these seven steps you’ll be able to not only remove negative energy spiritually, but you’ll give yourself a nice physical detox from any buildup of toxins your skin might have accumulated.

All Natural Ocean Bath

 

This is a great way to go if you live near a body of saltwater. The timeless ocean has amazing healing properties. If you have ever had the joy of swimming in the sea, you’ll know how refreshed and wonderful you feel afterward. This is because of the aura-cleansing properties of the seawater.

 

Baking Soda Bath

 

Taking a bath using baking soda, or bicarbonate of soda will also cleanse your aura. Just use the same method as for the saltwater bath above. This bath will also leave your skin feeling nice and soft.

 

Other Cleansing Rituals

There are a number of other cleansing rituals you can combine with your bath or hold separately that can clear negative energy, while boosting positivity, good luck, good vibes.

 

Smudging Your Home

Before you begin your spiritual bath, smudge your bathroom—not only will it clear the space, but it will leave a pleasant, lingering aroma for you to enjoy while in the tub.

Smoke in general will kill bacteria and purify any space in which it is allowed to waft, which is why you should smudge. Typically sage is used in a smudging ceremony, but you can also use palo santo, essential oils, or any other cleansing herb to hold a purifying smudging ceremony. If this feels a little witchy, that’s because it is, especially if you decide to do it during a new moon. But don’t worry, we’re not putting a hex on anyone.

Using Crystals

Crystals such as amethyst, clear quartz, and selenite are great purifiers for any household. While some may be skeptical of crystals for anything other than aesthetics, crystals do in fact have electromagnetic properties that can attract certain energies. Embody your inner hippie and encircle your tub with healing crystals to draw out that negative energy and transmute it into something positive.

There are many ways to purify your aura with spiritual baths, as well as a number of ways you can enhance the space in which you bathe. Remember that this process should be focused on self care, self-love, and honoring your higher spirit. Taking the time to clear any trapped negative energy in your life, you’ll notice immediate improvements to your soul’s eternal glow.
