Pisces Full Moon Bathing Ritual
This ritual can is best done from August 26-September 2, 2018
You will need:
- Flower Petals (fresh or dried)
- Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt
- Essential Oils
- Your favorite crystal
- Smudging tool of choice (eg. sage, palo santo)
- Candles (optional)
This is a bathing ritual, if you don’t have a bath, simply combine the ingredients in a jug to pour on yourself in the shower.
1.) Start by smudging yourself and your surroundings. For more detailed information on how to do this read this. As you smudge recite the following mantra or write your own-
“Everything is as it needs to be for I am light and love. I am right where I need to be for I am light and love. As I accept, I cleanse, and as I cleanse, I am free. I am light and love.”
2.) Begin running the bath water and take the salt in your hand. As you sprinkle the salt recite the following mantra or feel free to write your own-
“This salt cleanses and purifies me. It heals my wounds. It cleanses and releases anything that is no longer serving me.”
Next add the flower petals while reciting the following mantra-
“These flower petals add sweetness and love. I love myself and I am gentle with myself. I have come so far, and I am proud of myself for all that I have achieved.”
Finally, add a few drops of essential oil while reciting the following mantra-
“This oil signifies that I am right where I need to be. I accept my life. I accept where I am and know that I have the strength and confidence to make changes. This oil will open me up to receiving guidance on the next steps I can take to make my life even better.”
Light some candles to create ambiance if you wish and then step into the bath. You can also leave your crystals nearby or surrounding the tub.
3.) Enjoy a few moments to yourself in the warm bath. Imagine the salt, flowers, and essential oils working their magic and restoring your mind, body, and soul.
4.) Breathe deeply, place your hands over your heart, and keep repeating “thank you” to yourself. Do it at least 10 times. Thank yourself, your body, your mind, your spirit, your organs, your lungs, thank every inch of your beautiful self.
5.) With eyes closed, try to still your mind. Try to release any thoughts. Try not to engage with any thoughts that come through. Keep your mind still and just listen. Focus on listening to the rise and fall of your breath.
If this is too hard to do or you find yourself getting distracted, focus instead on 10 things you feel grateful for in your life. Really feel into them and allow the emotions to course through your body.
6.) When you are ready to get out of the bath, give thanks to yourself, to the bath water, to the Moon, and to the Universe.
7.) Once out of the bath hold onto your crystal and rub it gently to get the energy flowing. Open the palm of your hand and blow onto the crystal. Imagine you are blowing all the beautiful energies you soaked up from your bath into the crystal.
8.) Drain the bath water, discard the flower petals outside, and keep the crystal by your bedside as you sleep. The crystal will remain charged with the beautiful Full Moon energy until the next lunar cycle. Hold onto it and work with its energy whenever you need to feel calm or protected.
Happy Full Moon!
