Spiritual baths are an age old practice dating back to Ancient times and wide-ranging across virtually all cultures. Used in various religions and spiritual teachings as a means to “cleanse” or purify the non-physical bodies and mind, these baths vary from specific purpose to ingredients. There are many different types of spiritual baths and reasons to engage in the practice. Many people practice spiritual bathing for its use in rituals and/or aura cleansing. Spiritual baths are known to aid in the removal of negativity from one’s personal energetic field or aura.
Spiritual bathing, as a means to ‘clear’ one’s aura, has become increasingly popular in Western society over the last decade in ‘holistic’ healing practices. A trip to a spa or retreat is not necessary to enjoy the benefits of spritiual bathing and it does not have to be a complicated process. Finding a spiritual bath that resonates with your being can be an overwhelming process due to the varying information found during research. As with most things, simple is the way to go! The purpose of this article is to provide an easy, straightforward approach to spiritual bathing.
Spiritual baths help to cleanse the aura from the ‘dirt’ of everyday life that consciously, or unconsciously, seeps into our energetic being. Engaging in this practice, on a regular basis, is beneficial in helping to maintain a “clear” aura, free from as much negative energies as possible. We pick up these energies all day long as we go about our daily lives. There is no wonder why we feel the build-up of these outside energies at the end of the day. For this reason, many find it difficult to unwind and release the stress or negative energies that surround our being. Spiritual bathing removes the grime that sticks into the aura and helps to relieve the negativity and stress it causes. Feeling less bogged down from the counteractive forces previously in the aura, positivity, free and light feelings, and clearer thinking are ususally the result of the cleanse.
Because these baths are spiritual in nature, they differ from regular baths and there are some guidelines one can follow to ensure the most beneficial experience. With all things spiritual, a positive mind set with proper intention and focus is a must! Be sure to induce this state of mind prior to the bath with breathing(a few slow deep breaths), meditation, nature sounds, music, etc.
