The word self-care always brings us back to the principle of the oxygen mask on the aeroplane. Without placing the mask on yourself you can’t help anyone around you. Yet very often self-care is forgotten in our daily lives.
Creating a Ritual out of your self-care moments gives the possibility to form it into a habit. Just like brushing your teeth is a habit and a ritual practised in the morning and night. Connecting each Ritual to the energy offered by the moon, lets the practice become natural. You will be in an energetic flow, instead of feeling as if you are swimming up current.
Below we offer you a Ritual connected to each element the Moon passes through. We would like to invite you into this Magical practice and creation of a connected life to the Moon and nature’s elements.
Use the momentum of the moon travelling through an earth sign, to root in your goals and set the steps in place to achieve what is needed on your path.
Grounding Crystal Meditation
Take a moment to sit in a comfortable seated meditation pose. Observe your breath and the natural current of your breathing. Listen to how you inhale and exhale…
Upon your next inhalation, inhale for 4 seconds. Retain your breath and immerse yourself with the increasing energy, the fire within your body. This is what helps keep you focused. Upon your exhalation, exhale for 8 seconds. Exhale fully until no breath. Again you take a moment there before you fully inhale for 4 seconds, as you repeat the cycle above for a few rounds. Within each moment of no breath, bring your awareness to your heart. Your heart will show you the correct path to take. Your breath is the key to staying focused upon your path.
When the Moon travels through Water signs, practice compassion.
To others and yourself. Forgive yourself, be kind.
Take a moment to readjust and observe what it is you need.
Spiritual Bath Ritual
This ritual has been used by shamans for many centuries. The base of this recipe has its origin in South American Shamanism however it has been tweaked by us to serve the purpose of this moon. Taking a spiritual bath will help you to consciously release and manifest your dreams.
Use a bowl with 1,5-litre water, this can also be more if you like.
Create a sacred space and light a candle.
- A couple table spoons of Florida Water
- Violet leafs (or your favourite Flower)
- 3 drops of Essential Oil – Patchouli, Frankincense or your favorite oil
- Sea salt a table spoon
- Fresh Sage leafs
Florida Water is added to spiritual baths to enhance spiritual cleansing and for Purification & Protection.
The Essential Oil adds a meditative aspect, connecting you to Source Energy. It helps you to Spiritually Connect and Focus.
The Sea salt works as a Cleanser and bind the oils in the water.
Sage will Clear Blockages you might encounter
Violet increases intuition. When adding the flowers affirm that intuition will guide you into taking the right path towards manifesting your dreams and hearts desires on your path.
While you prepare your bath repeat your connected Affirmation.
You can create your own Affirmation or repeat ours:
”I trust my intuition which guides me into manifesting my dreams.”
Once you have prepared your bath you can add it to a bath tub and immerse yourself in it. You can pour it over yourself in the shower.
Or simply scoop out some spiritual bath water and pass it along your crown, fore head and sliding it along your arms and legs, ending at your feet.
If you would like you can keep it refrigerated for 3 days in a glass bottle.
Repeating the cleansing daily for those 3 days.
Make sure you rinse the spiritual bath water thoroughly of your skin and that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients. If you are you can decide to visualise washing your self with the bath, making the gestures but not actually using the water.
Fire signs enforce freedom.
Make use of this energy by riding this beautiful free wave.
Candle Meditation Ritual
This beautiful meditation allows you to feel free of your thoughts. To transform your perspective.
Grab a candle and hold the wick while repeating your affirmation for three times. Light your candle wick.
Then place the lit candle in front of you on the floor. The distance is right when you can rest your eyelids while staring at the candle. With each inhalation bring your awareness back to your candle. If thoughts arise imagine the fire burning your thoughts away upon each exhalation. You can decide to close your eyes and still see the candle from within. Connected to the transformational energy of Fire.
Sit here for the time that you need today.
