There is a wonderful bath ritual you can perform next time you take a bath. This ritual is best done during one of the two days of the weeks – Wednesday or Friday. Those two days are the two feminine days, since they are considered as even days of the week (as oppose to odd ones: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday). Besides, the planet Venus, one of the two very feminine planets, patronizes Friday. The other planet is Moon.
What you will need for the ritual:
+ Salt – Sea salt is the best but you can use any other salt.
+ 20 min of your time
Important: You can do this ritual either on the waning or waxing moon but not on the new moon or full moon.
Fill the bath with hot water. Light your candles. Make sure no one bothers you for the next thirty minutes or so. Before you get into the bath you should do a couple of things, which is basically part the ritual itself. Depending on the moon, draw twelve waning or waxing little moons on the water with your finger. Then, read a prayer. You can pick any prayer within your religion, or if you are not religious, any strong cleansing saying. The prayer should be the one that you would use to protect yourself in times of danger. Think of what you usually use and use this prayer. If you cannot think of anything, try to find something close to your heart from the existing prayers. Traditionally, since this is a Slavic ritual, an orthodox prayer of The Lord’s Prayer is used. So you can try to find something similar, as strong and profound that would correspond to your beliefs.
Once you have chosen your prayer, read it twelve consecutive times out loud with as much feelings as you can. You have to really mean what you say. Then, baptize and bless the water twelve times. To baptize it traditionally, just draw twelve little crosses again on the surface of the water using the salt. This is a traditional way, you can choose your own way of making the water holy by drawing other special symbols of your choice. Just make sure you use salt when you draw them.
Now, say the following:
On the waning moon – “As the moon is waning, so and so is going away from me”. Pick whatever you no longer want to have in your life. It can be debt, disease, bad mood, anything you don’t want to have anymore.
On the waxing moon – “As the moon is waxing, so and so is coming to me”. Pick whatever you want to have in your life. New relationships, health, money, anything.
Now, sit in the bath for twenty minutes and soak in your intentions. Enjoy your experience and know that this ritual works and your intentions will come true. So choose wisely 😉 If the moon is waning, you can additional visualize how all the unwanted things go away as you watch the water drains at the end of the bath time.
Stay blessed, ladies!
