This week’s Soulful Sunday Ritual centres around my favourite thing: The Bathtub!
If you’re like me, baths + anything water feel like a sacred place. They always have done… (yes, I’m a watersign, Pisces sun)
In the last few years, I adore a Sunday eve boujee bath to calm my nervous system, connect with my soulful self + to release what no longer serves me.
All of this beautiful inner ‘work’ surrounded by candles, music and essential oils. BLISS!!
Ready to DIVE in…
This bath ritual can be done with a bathtub full of water, but I’m boujee and I love the sensual ritual experience.
Here are some gorgeously indulgent options to play with…
Once your bath is prepared, here is my ritual to Connect + Cleanse for the week
As your bath is ready, I invite you to set an intention for this experience. Your words are wands! For example… close your eyes, place your hands on your heartspace, and say…
Thank you for this peaceful experience to feel one with myself, to feel one with my desires, to feel free from any limitations. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
As you settle into the bath, focus on your breath. Your breath brings you into the moment, into the eternal now. This is where we experience the ritual – in the present.
Try box breathing – breathe in for four counts, hold for four counts, breathe out for four counts. Repeat 4 times to relax your mind + body, feeling more present.
In the now, focus your attention on what you’re grateful for in this moment. Connect with deep appreciation for this moment. Allow the feelings of gratitude to wash over you in abundance. For example… close your eyes, connecting with the present, and say…
Thank you for this moment, I feel alive. Thank you for fresh water to be here in the bath, feeling cleansed. Thank you for the craftsmanship + natural ingredients of this candle, it smells sublime, I’m so grateful to be able to appreciate the smell.
Keep going, allowing it to flow, speaking out loud in a whisper.
CONNECT WITH DESIRE
When you’re feeling the bubble of appreciation for life as it is, allow your focus to shift to your desires. With your eyes closed, allow yourself to immerse in the experience of what’s possible + inevitable for you.
Perhaps it’s business success, a trip of a lifetime, dream home, expanding your family, soul mate love, leading your Ted Talk with confidence.
Perhaps it’s a desire for this week. Calling in clients, receiving exciting news, accomplishing a project, receiving a call.
Whatever it is, allow yourself to connect with the desire with love + gratitude. Enjoy the experience.
Then, simply be. Choosing to be present, enjoy this moment for as long as you desire.
Perhaps looking at the candle flame or with your eyes closed in meditation. Whatever feels good for you – this is YOUR ritual.
This is one of the most gorgeous parts of the ritual – releasing what no longer serves you in the present! When you’re ready, pull the plug on your bath and stay laying down. As the water flows away, set this intention…
Thank you for cleansing me of any lower density energy + any limiting thoughts, beliefs + patterns that no longer support me in receiving my desires in abundance with ease. I release you now. Thank you for the cleanse.
Watch, feel, sense, hear the water flow away – and KNOW that any limitations are flowing away too. You are intentionally choosing to cleanse.
PROTECT YOUR ENERGY
When the water has flown away, gracefully enjoy your evening in this energy. I tend to do this ritual just before bed to protect my energy – less outside interference.
I love to keep lights low, not check my phone, and head straight into my bedtime routine ready to take this energy into the morning.
Even just thinking about it + sharing this ritual with you has calmed my mind + body!
It’s truly magical for all your senses… as well as your soul. You’re ready for your week feeling aligned, intentional + cleansed.
Let me know how much you enjoy this ritual… and if you would love any product recommendations, let me know
Sending you so much calm + love this Sunday,
