How Wiccans Revitalize When Feeling Overwhelmed

“I’m so tired. I’ve been working my regular job and trying to do my art on the side,” Jessica said, in an exhausted whisper.

“How’s it going?” I asked.

“I am just way overworked, and I don’t know what to do.”

So, what is a witch to do?

What really helps is a Two-Step Release and Recover Process.

We’ve all heard about draining out negative energy. It’s also important to take the next step and fill up with positive energy.

What you will need:

  • Consecrated, blessed oil (for anointing yourself)
  • Two candles
  • Incense
  • Salt
  • Cleansing Herbs
  • Nylon stocking
  • Lighter

Step One: Ritual Bath to Release Stress and Negative Energy:

Take an evening to just lounge in a ritual bath.

  • Place appropriate herbs into a sheer nylon stocking. Use the soothing fragrance of Lavender. (Perhaps, you might find other herbs that calm you.)
  • Pour a bit of salt into your bath water. Place your herb-bundle into your hot bath water.
  • Light two candles and some incense.
  • Recline into the water. Breathe deeply. Close your eyes and call on the Lord and Lady to help you release all the toxins into your bath water.
  • Let all your stress drain down and away—after your bath.

Step Two: The Special Ritual Anointing of Your Body to Revitalize Your Energy

  • Apply your consecrated oil onto your skin. Visualize that the Lord and Lady are embracing you with positive energy.
  • Say aloud (you can repeat this chant throughout the anointing of your body):

Lord and Lady,
Enwrap me with Your Love
Strengthen my body,
Revitalize my energy.
So, mote it be.

May this process bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

The Importance of Ritual Bathing

Imagine you could enhance your magick working with a simple process. How? Your ritual bath. It’s important because it puts you into the right frame of mind before you perform ritual. Secondly, you physically clean your body of the dirt and grime of the day. Finally, ritual bathing cleanses you of the psychic garbage that clings to you.

You can choose any soap (a required part) that you prefer. Wiccans appreciate handmade soaps, especially if they already contain the herbs or essences one already uses in magick work.

How do I make my bathing a ritual bath (or shower)?

Bless and consecrate your soap and shampoo. Set these aside for use only during your ritual baths.

How to make a sachet with cleansing herbs for a bath:

Use a stocking or cotton cloth, and place inside selected cleansing herbs. The total amount of all herbs will be one tablespoon.

If you use a cotton cloth, gather the corners and tie them with a string. Make sure the sachet is closed and secure. This keeps the herbs from clogging your drain.

Place your sachet in the bath water then sprinkle in some sea salt and let steep for 5 or so minutes. Then enjoy.

 

Making a cleansing shower tincture:

If you will be showering, place your sachet in a large container of hot water to steep. Sprinkle sea salt and dissolve it into the mixture (the tincture). When the water cools to a comfortable temperature, then take into your shower and wash with soap, envisioning all the psychic garbage leaving you.

 

Then pour the contents of the tincture over your head and rub it in. In this way, the contents help you complete your cleansing. The residue flows away, down the drain.

 

Add a blessing

I also add a blessing at the end of my ritual bath. I’ve added some modifications to a popular blessing.

 

Wiccan Blessing

Starting at your forehead say as you touch you third eye say:

I bless myself by the Goddess,

(Touch your right breast)

By the air that is her sweet breath,

(Touch your left shoulder . . . [you are actually forming a pentagram with these movements].)

By the earth, that is her fertile body,

(Touch your right shoulder.)

By the waters that is her life giving womb,

(Touch your left breast.)

By the fire that is her bright spirit,

(Touch your third eye.)

May I be blessed, so mote it be.

Upon completing  your ritual bathing, you’re now ready to enter circle to honor the Gods respectfully. Not only will the Gods be happy but your fellow practitioners will be grateful, too. (Trust me.)

Are there particular rituals you like to do prior to entering circle? Let me know in the comments section below.
