Ritual Bath for Transformation
The intention for this ritual is to welcome and embrace our transformation and the new beginnings that are coming. We are showing gratitude to our past experiences and the mystery of the unknown. We are letting go of all that does not serve us and creating sacred space for happiness and deep true love. We are connecting with Mother Earth and showing her great gratitude for her offerings and sacred medicine that grounds us, connects and heals us. Of course, you can adapt and expand any ritual and its ingredients to suit your unique self.
Clean and keep your sacred space/home tidy. You don’t want to come out of bliss only to see your stack of dishes and laundry!
Prepare to turn off your devices, email and social media.
Prepare to go to sleep! You may want to crawl into bed and go to sleep after a bath ritual as it induces bliss, comfort and relaxation.
Palo Santo smudge for energetic protection and warding off negative energy.
1-2 cups of sea salt to invoke self-love, energetic protection, purification and a closer connection to the ocean.
Brew Calendula and Sage tea to support new beginnings and to cultivate gratitude towards the coming bright times. Strain the tea before pouring in the bath.

Put your salt and brewed tea in the bath water, pouring it while thinking of your healing intention.
Put several drops of Anise essential oil in the bath water
Add fresh and dried flowers.
Lay back in the water with just your face peaking above the surface. Lay the Tigers Eye, Moonstone and Rose Quartz over your sacrum, heart and third eye. Place your hands wherever they lead, perhaps over the crystals.
Speak your intention. State your gratitude for the unknown and the experience of new beginnings that help you witness yourself grow. Chant freely how your transformation is helping to support a life you love. Begin to let go of the habits that no longer serve you.
If needed, you can create a statement or affirmation to chant. For example, “I choose happiness, love and my divine wellness. I grow with change and new challenges. I am grateful for all of my blessings and I am living a life I love.” Envision a bright yellow light sweeping through your body, starting from your crown chakra and bursting through your feet. FEEL the gratitude that you have for your blessings, the unknown and tune into the love you have for your ever abundant life.
Express great gratitude to Mother Nature for her offerings and this healing medicine. Thank the water spirits for this cleansing water.
Create a circle for yourself by calling in the elemental spirits and directions. Call the spirits of the East (air), South (fire), West (water), North (earth) and Center (ether).
Close the circle by thanking the spirits for supporting you. Speak a closing rite: By the earth that is our body By the sea that is our blood By the fire that is our bright spirit and By the air that is our breath This circle is open, but unbroken May we meet, may we part, but may we meet again Blessed Be
Drink plenty of water, thanking the water spirits every time the water touches your lips
Refrain from checking your devices and social media.
Journal the ideas and messages that came through for you in the ritual. Keep the journal close as you may have more to write in the morning or during the week.
