Full Moon Bath Ritual

Smudge the space as the water begins to collect, place the crystals in the tub and allow their energy to charge the water. Add the oils, pouring your intentions into the water with every drop. Light the candle and place it next to the tub, allowing the flames light to cascade over your body. When the water is ready, take a step into the tub, whispering your full moon intentions as you submerge yourself in its calming warmth.
Play relaxing sounds while you are in the tub, meditating and asking goddess to send you any messages as you soak. Once you are done with the bath, journal what came up for you. Blow out the candle as you thank the divine for their guidance.
A bath is an oracle, as we soak in the sacred waters emotions, thoughts, and visions rise to the surface.

The heart chakra is the center to your being the pathway between your lower and upper chakras: Root, Sacral, Solar, HEART, Throat, Third Eye, Crown. By cleansing your heart, you are able to find more emotional balance and clarity. I like to think of the heart as the place where the soul resides. When someone asks for you, you tend to point towards the center of your chest in response, “Who Me?”
There is a Japanese art called Kintsugi, where broken objects are put back together using lacquer mixed with powdered gold. This practice of golden rejoining brings beauty to imperfection, the pieces are alchemized into a flourishing masterpiece.
