An important part of the ascension process is the purification of our bodies and chakras. For the most part, our thoughts, attitudes, emotions, and the food we ingest all contribute to our overall ‘frequency’. But the ordinary routine of bathing can become an extraordinary way to cleanse, purify and purge all that does not serve our highest good. Here, I will give guidance on how to achieve that higher state in a most luxurious way — the ‘Ascension Bath’. Regular bathing in this manner will help to maintain a higher-vibrational auric field, and will leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed and revitalized. Let’s face it: ascension is about raising vibrations. This bath will do exactly that… and more. ~ :) ~
For the ‘Ascension Bath’ you will need of course, a bathtub — and the following:
- Baking Soda
- Epsom Salt
- Himalayan Pink Salt Crystals
- Castor Oil
- Essential Oil
- Loofah Sponge
- Meditative Music/Soothing Sounds
RECIPE FOR THE ULTIMATE ‘ASCENSION BATH':
Bathtub with 7-inches [or more] of hot water
4 cups pure baking soda
2 cups pure epsom salt
1/4 cup Himalayan pink salt crystals
1 tablespoon castor oil
1/4 teaspoon essential oil
Water - Add a minimum depth of 7 inches water. The water should be as hot as you can stand, yet comfortable. Hotter is better, since you will be in the tub for a minimum of 30 minutes. A home water filtration system is recommended for removing toxins and impurities such as chlorine and fluoride, but not imperative, as this recipe and regime proves to be equally effective in cleansing and purifying water as well.
Baking Soda - Since you will be using 4 cups of baking soda per bath, the most economical route is to buy baking soda in bulk – a 14 pound bag will last you a while. Baking soda is a natural cleanser and aids in drawing impurities from the body.
Epsom Salt – Buy this in bulk quantity. Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) has numerous health benefits. One of the key benefits here is for its natural source of magnesium and other trace minerals, which are known for their soothing properties — especially for relieving pain and reinvigorating sore muscles.
Himalayan Pink Salt Crystals - I recommend you buy this in bulk as well. You may use sea salt crystals, but Himalayan pink salt presently has a greater purity than the salt of our oceans. The salt crystals are abundant in essential trace minerals, and will naturally draw out toxins from both your body and even your auric field.
Castor Oil - This natural oil from the castor plant helps to moisturize, soften and nourish skin and hair. You may use coconut oil if you wish, but make sure to run hot water again for a full minute after tub drains to avoid eventual clogging of pipes (if clogging does occur, use a mixture of pure baking soda with apple cider vinegar to de-clog the drainpipe).
Essential Oil - I recommend lavender or rose essences. Both are soothing and raise vibrations naturally. Use menthol, eucalyptus or camphor oil for therapeutic results (i.e. for sore muscles after long hikes). You may even use fresh rose petals to add a heavenly fragrance to your bath.
Tub - Never use commercial cleaning products when cleaning your tub, since the residual toxins from these chemicals will absorb into your body through your pores while bathing. Instead, clean your tub using pure baking soda with apple cider vinegar, to effectively scour, cleanse and remove residues.
Loofah sponge - Use a natural loofah sponge. Sure, you can use a synthetic plastic scrubbie, but why? You want to cleanse your body, not toxify it. The texture of the natural loofah is ideal for stimulating the skin and enhancing relaxation.
Crystals/Gemstones - Your preference, and as many as you like. Use your favorite healing crystals and place around the tub, or you can place them into the tub if you like — this will also aid in cleansing your crystals (just be mindful where you place them to avoid minor injury).
Candles - Your preference, and as many as you like. White candles are good since they represent purity and divine presence. Pink candles invoke a warming energy of love. Light a few around the tub, such as in the four corners — but be careful around open flames while bathing (a jar candle in a very thick glass is best for safety reasons).
Prayers and Mantras - Your preference, as many as you like. This is your way of blessing and being blessed.
Sound Therapy - Your preference of meditative music or healing, soothing sounds. Choose any sound therapy which raises your vibrations and makes you feel blissful, yet serene.
THE ULTIMATE ‘ASCENSION BATH':
Bathing - Give yourself plenty of time for this bath. This means before, during and after. Think of ‘ascension bathing’ as a sacred ritual. It is not something you want to put on ‘rush mode’. The natural elements will draw impurities from your body, so allow time for this process. If you find yourself in ‘rush mode’, you should schedule your bath when you have more time, or you really need this bath — now.
Water - If you have a smaller water heater, I recommend you keep the thermostat at the highest recommended setting. Begin by using only hot water, without any cold dilution. You want at least 9 inches of water that is as hot as you can handle. Since the feet aren’t as tempered to heat as the hands, dip your foot into the water to gauge the heat.
Therapeutics - Have your candles pre-lit and your crystals and stones pre-set. Have your healing sounds or meditative music playing softly. Add the baking soda, salt and castor oils while the tub is filling with water. Just before entering tub, add the essential oil.
Hydration – Make sure you are fully hydrated before and after bathing. While the water itself can hydrate the outer layers of your skin, you are also losing water through the inner cleansing process and perspiration. Drink a full 12 ounces purified water before and after your bath.
Blessing – Say a blessing or prayer after settling into the tub. Any “I AM” or Violet Flame invocation/visualization is good for this. Throughout your bathing experience, you may wish to to use a prayer or mantra, or anything that gives you a feeling of purity and empowerment.
Breathing - Think of the ‘Ascension Bath’ as a form of meditation — because it is. Relax completely and be mindful of your breathing, and your pranic breath. Move your awareness out of your mind and into your heart center.
Positioning - Settle into a comfortable position at first, then turn at intervals, so every part of your body spends some time immersed in the water. A comfortable position while lying on the stomach is to fold the arms in front of the torso, and hold the head intermittently left, then right, alongside the tub rim (you may want a towel for cushioning, though I’ve never experienced discomfort).
Stretching - Basic Yogic stretches are good now, as you are in water and your body is more fully supported. The combination of light yoga with the natural hydrotherapy of this bath can be quite beneficial.
Duration - For maximum clearing and cleansing benefits, remain in the bath at least 30-40 minutes. More important than focusing on the time, is focusing on the fullest experience possible.
After-Bath - While the water is draining, remain in the tub and focus on gathering your energy field, since it will be very “open” and clear at this point. Use a visualization or invocation to “seal your aura’ and your auric Pillar of Light — here is where you may again invoke the Violet Flame (I also recommend Lisa Renee’s 12D Light Shielding Technique video meditation/visualization from the Energetic Synthesis YouTube channel). You may wish to lie down and meditate further after you are finished bathing — follow your own inner guidance.
Benefits - With regular ‘ascension bathing’ you will feel and see the results, as others will too, for your body will be less dense, and your aura, brighter. You will be more relaxed, focused, centered… closer to the beautiful pure Being of Light you ARE. ((((( ~ :D ~ )))))
