The full moon combined with the lion’s gate energies had many feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, and down right drained. To aid in the healing of all the madness I decided a bath was necessary. I was guided to utilize epsom salt and lavender. My lavender essential oils and dried flowers made a perfect pairing with my refreshing and grounding epsom salts. Six drops of lavender for healing and nurturing, three scoops of epsom salt for expansion and growth, and a pinch of dried lavender for an earthy connection. As I soaked, I pictured everything I needed to release permeating from my pores into my bath. I allowed everything that no longer serves me to slough off of my spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical being. I allowed all thoughts that entered my mind to sit with me as they presented themselves. Once they were finished I asked that they too be exited from my being filling the tub. I usually use stones, but was not directed to use any at this time. I physically removed all dead skin, dirt, and grime from my physical form representing the emotions, thoughts and behaviors I wanted to exit my other ethereal bodies. When I was finished and felt fully cleansed, I asked Archangel Raphael to patch up any wounds left open as I pictured myself engulfed by an emerald green light. As the tub drained I pictured all of my worries, sorrows, fears, and other aspects of myself and my life that no longer served me leaving my space. I thanked all of my guides for being present and aiding me in this process. I encourage all of you to take some time for yourselves and allow a moment for release. ⠀

This card aligns us with our life purpose by clearly showing us our path. We are being asked to rise into our true potential of unique greatness. Before we rise, we must make a series of transitions to become the person we are meant to be. In order to change, there must be a motive, a tangible solution, and the willpower to see it through to completion. There are many changes people want to see within the world and their lives, however, they are often unwilling to look within and grow and develop themselves. Individual transformations are necessary in order to make major shifts in our lives, in society, and in the world. Here are 5 steps to make that soul connection with your higher self in order to raise the vibrations of the collective consciousness.
Let go. This includes people, places, objects, thoughts, moments, and behaviors that are toxic. If it does not stimulate your growth, keep it out of your space. Do this with love and acceptance. For thoughts and behaviors, look at patterns you exhibit. Forgive yourself, and then find tools to make better choices for a more positive outcome.
Self-love, self-care, self-acceptance. No one else is with you 24/7 to do all of this for you. It is important to come up with a routine to practice these three underestimated necessities of life. Baths, crystal healing, meditation, Qigong, yoga, Tai Chi, sound therapy, self-massage, and so much more are wonderful ways to show yourself gratitude.
Eat and Hydrate. Do not skip meals! Hangriness does not lead to happiness. Graze throughout the day if you’re a snacker – just make sure your intake is healthy and organic. Always have a full cup of water. Our body predominantly made up of water. It is a necessity of life, and one of the two ways we get oxygen to our bodies. It is also cleansing and purifying.
Sleep. Catch as many zzz’s as you want. If you want to sleep in this Sunday (and can), then go for it! Feel like you need a nap in the afternoon (and have time/space)? Take advantage of it! Your body probably needs to rejuvenate via peaceful slumber.
Let your light shine! Get creative and have fun expressing yourself! This can be anything from dancing in your pjs to singing in the shower, working on your garden, prepping your favorite meal, crocheting your next masterpiece, going to a paint night, or even cleaning! Whatever it is that you enjoy – do it with every inch of your being and bask in the present moment.
Work on these 5 basic tools to make the necessary adjustments within yourself, and you will start feeling these changes and seeing changes in your life. I know these are everywhere, and you’re all probably thinking, “Duh! I know this!” But, are you DOING any of this? Regularly? Mindfully? Give it a try, and really be in the moment. Also, keep your eyes peeled on some techniques I will be sharing about how to be mindful, and change reactions into thoughtful actions.

Today I have been in dire need of love and care. I can always ask it of the world, however, I will only feel the full effect if I do it myself. So, I decided I will self-love, self-care, and self-soothe. One of the easiest ways for me to do this is relax and recharge with a cleansing bath as I submerge into water. I chose some Himalayan salt and cleansing epsom salt to diffuse my charged energy. I also picked a rose from my “garden” to aid in my skin care, and create a feeling of love and harmony. Finally, I chose red jasper to center and ground me and my Qi, lepidolite to soothe my nerves and anxiety, blue chalcedony to further calm and relax my subtle bodies, and serpentine to aid in my self love and care. I encourage everyone who needs a break from life to garnish your bath with healing tools such as these for a deeper cleanse. ⠀⠀
