Hello and welcome to Magick Month! For the entire month of October The Guitar Witch will be posting a new tip or challenge to help your creativity flourish and pulse with all the energy and life it deserves! You can find previous days here. Today I will discuss taking a ritual shower.
Yesterday and the day previously I discussed Shadow Work. You can check out Part I here. I feel like a discussion on further cleansing and centering would be beneficial for anyone who has done the previous day’s work.
As we have read or experienced, doing shadow work – finding what is dark and hidden and often repressed inside of ourselves and bringing it to light – is a powerful practice.
While it is deeply beneficial, I also feel like it is almost a type of psychic surgery.
Self-care afterwards (and regularly) is important.
Here’s a few other forms of self-care:
A ritual shower is a simple visualization based practice that you can do each time you shower. You imagine the water as light, cleansing you inside and out.
This is a practice based off of a very intense seer, Sarah Wreck, from California. She used to have some great pamphlets and articles up on Tumblr, but a year or two ago she took everything down and cancelled all her social media, I believe as a period of seclusion to work on her spiritual practice. She has a compilation of her cartoons, Shitty Occult Comics here, but the price is obviously just a joke. I highly recommend looking out for her return.
Sarah explained it so well and I wish I would have saved her work before it got taken down, but I’ll do my best to tell you how I do this now.
Go into the bathroom. Light a candle or use soft lighting if you wish.
Breathe deeply, feel your energy. Lightly stretch.
Get into the shower. As the water comes down, imagine it as white light.
This white light is cleaning you, body and soul.
Imagine it, tell yourself it. Feel it.
Imagine and tell yourself that everything weighing you down, clouding you, blocking you, is swirling down the drain.
Keep repeating to yourself that you are being cleansed.
You can wash your hair, use whatever products you normally would, or whatever suits your taste.
As always, say thank you and goodbye to that which is not serving you, and thank you and hello to that which is.
Let gratitude be your constant companion, even through pain and strife.
This is such a simple practice and can be done every time you shower. It doesn’t take any extra time, but it does call your attention. An exchange well worth it, in my opinion.
If you have any questions do not hesitate to comment below.
Thanks for reading!
