Bathing in Moonlight

Full Moon Ritual Bath Salt Blend

1 Cup ~ Himalayan Salts

1 Tsp. ~ Dried Eucalyptus

1 Tsp. ~ Mugwort

2 Tsp. ~ Jasmine Flowers

3 drops ~ Wintergreen Essential Oil

3 drops ~ Sandalwood Essential Oil

Blend all ingredients together and add 1/4 cup to running bath water. This is a very powerful blend so you do not need much. Tie in cheesecloth and add to water if you wish to keep the herbs together. Adding a couple Moonstones to the bath is also recommended. Soak in water for 20 to 30 minutes while meditating on drawing down the moon’s energy into the water and absorbing it into your body.

This blend is wonderful for:

~ Strengthening your Intuition

~ Increasing the Constructive Lunar Energy for Magical workings.

~ Manifestation of Desires

~ Authentic Expression of Self

 Bath Salt Crystals are great for aches and pains and they have a strong purifying and re-mineralization effect; which restores the balance of energy levels and provides extreme relaxation. The salt minerals penetrate your skin in form of ions. On the day of the full moon the body’s absorption potentials is at peak. Bio-energetic weak points will be balanced and your body’s energy flow will be activated, making these perfect to use before and after any Ritual work. These salts can also be used for Crystal Charging.

Feeling the Shadow Self

Throughout history, it has been believed that eclipses where very auspicious signs.  Some believed they happened when we have angered the gods.  Metaphysically speaking,  each type of eclipse brings it’s own process for us to work through.   The processes brought on by a Solar eclipse tend to be more visible and manifest in an outer way, relating to the ego.  The processes of a Lunar eclipse are experienced  in a deeper, private way, working with our subconscious and inner feelings.

A lunar eclipse may impact you emotionally as its energy is directed inward. You may feel a sense of loss, sadness, or depression, as the moon influences our moods and our emotions.  I had this very experience on Sunday and found that many of the people I spoke with had very similar feelings as well.  Most of these are due to the nature of lunar eclipses. They tend to bring change to our lives and push us outside our comfort zones as they remove things from us. We tend to forget that most times things leave our lives in preparation for new more suitable situations to be drawn in. We can be so hard on ourselves and self doubt can easily find its way into your subconscious during these times causing us to question the path we are on and the choices we are making.

These are times of great spiritual growth. Trust that whatever feelings you had, or whatever surfaces, you are evolving into the person you were destined to become. Do not allow yourself to stay with negative feelings long. Although quiet reflection has it’s place in our journey, allowing despair to eclipse your self worth is not healthy. Remember that your are a reflection of spirit. Namaste! The light in me greets the light in you. Shine that light bright for all to see!
