Traditionally, water has been used to heal, cleanse, and renew the body for generations. Spiritual baths are a powerful way to cleanse your energy so that your highest self can shine through. Taking a cleansing bath before your fertility ritual is an empowering way to reclaim your energy and heal your womb.
What is a spiritual bath?
A spiritual bath is not necessarily about getting clean, but rather clearing the negative blocks in your physical, emotional, and spiritual body.
The key component of a spiritual bath is intention. When baths are paired with strong intention, you are creating a ritual. Performing rituals not only gives space for your intentions to manifest, but cleanses your energy field so that your spirit guides can work with you easily and more often.
A spiritually cleansing bath can take form in many ways:
Soaking in a bathtub
Taking a shower
Washing your hands or feet
Splashing water on your face
The way in which the spiritual bath is taken is not important; what matters is the intention you put into the practice.
Why is spiritual cleansing so important?
Cleansing yourself regularly with a spiritual bath is important because it will wash away the negative energy blocking you from manifesting your new reality.
Although you may be seeking the help of a healer or root worker like myself to become pregnant, you are ultimately responsible for your own energy honey.
If you are trapped in a negative energy pattern, your spirit baby is not going to feel safe connecting with you, and won’t feel ready to enter the physical realm.
If you are unsure of what your energetic blocks are, look to your ancestors and spirit guides for insight. My fertility readings are an opportunity for you to receive guidance about the karmic blocks you are currently working with.
Here are the blocks I see most frequently with my JUJU mamas:
Lack of self care or self love
Issues with family members
Negative energy in the home
Taking the time to perform a spiritual bath can heal these energy patterns, making space for your spirit baby to connect with you, and bring healing energy to your womb.
How to take a spiritually cleansing bath
It’s important to remember that a spiritual bath doesn’t need to include an elaborate ritual or ingredient list. In reality, you don’t need much to have a positive experience.
I recommend keeping it simple at first, so that you don’t get caught up or distracted by all the herbs, oils, candles, etc.
If you’d like to use herbs, oils, or candle magick to enhance your experience, please do so, but just remember it is not necessary.
Here are my top tips for creating your spiritual bath:
Use Epsom Salts or Sea Salt
Salt is the most simple and effective ingredient to incorporate into your spiritual bath. Epsom salt or sea salt cleanses the body by drawing out toxins in your energy field so that you can regain balance. The magnesium found in Epsom salts also helps relieve stress and allows you to relax. Relaxation is especially important for my JUJU mamas experiencing physical imbalances, so make sure you’re prioritizing it.
Meditate Before & After On Your Intentions
The whole purpose of taking a spiritual bath is to make your intentions known. To get the most out of your experience, write your intentions down before you begin your bath. Throughout the experience, meditate on your intentions, and ask your guides to send you insightful messages. Once you are finished, release your intentions, and thank your guides for being present.
If you are having trouble putting words to your intentions, try these fertility JUJU mantras to get started.
Enhance Your Experience with Music, Candles, and Herbs
To enhance your experience, you can use a variety of spiritual tools to get you in the right mindset.
A few ideas to explore are :
Remember that these tools are not necessary for you to cleanse yourself. It is important to not let these things distract you, but rather use them to increase the power of your experience.
Spiritual cleansing is an important component of your fertility journey. A spiritual bath can help clear negative energy, and help heal karmic blocks preventing you from becoming pregnant.
I recommend all my JUJU mamas cleanse themselves before participating in my fertility rituals to get the best experience possible.
Healing your spiritual trauma as a part of your ttc journey can be difficult, but when you show up and do the work, you can manifest your new reality.
