SIMPLE SELF-CLEANSING

June 16, 2017

The ritual can be broken down into three simple parts: Cleanse, Consume, and Cease.

To Cleanse:

✨A shower is ideal.

✨Turn off the lights and open the window.

✨If it’s night time a few candles (in containers is safer but I’ve used tealights without issue)

✨A body scrub (exfoliating is good DO NOT USE MICROBEADS THEY ARE TERRIBLE FOR THE ENVORINMENT.)

✨Typical shower items

✨Freshly washed towel

✨Moody Music (I listened to Eivør and Faun and Omnia for this myself)

✨Red Yarn

✨While in the shower imagine your body is coated in a thick, black tar. Starting from your head peel (yes physically) the tar from the top of your head down.

✨The more you “struggle” the better I feel the results tend to be. Really tear at the stuff and work your way all the way down to your feet. Once the last bit is torn off and down the drain wash up really well. Pay attention to lather in especially sore or achey areas.

✨I focus in grounding and even on light trance work in the shower. If you are uncomfortable by this you can avoid it. I clear my mind and sit in the floor eventually working into a position where my forehead touches the floor (child’s pose).

✨After this it is important to get up slowly, I’ve gotten really dizzy from standing up too quickly in the shower before.

✨While I towel dry I dance around the bathroom, snuffing candles out until I’m left in silence and darkness.

✨At this point I do daily grooming things but pay attention to how. Lotion and toner is applied with thought and consideration. Slowly building up these methods of care as a means of replacing what was lost and washed away. Though, care, and energy is important when repairing after cleansing. If you like you can encorperate sigil work (amulet work/ talisman work to some) into this aspect of the ritual.

To Consume

✨Cook yourself some simple and yummy food. Don’t make anything too heavy but indulge in foods rich in color and that make you feel better.

✨Often I cook eggs, jams and breads, and honey covered cakes and things of that nature. Meat is also a good choice.

✨ Season with strong protection or warding foods such as garlic, honey, rosemary, thyme, salt, lemon and so on.

✨Settle down with something stimulating but also that you enjoy like a favorite song or book. Nourishing yourself is more than simply eating food.

✨If you fancy it a nice walk or a quick trip out is also a good method of clearing your mind.

To Cease:

✨Make up your bed and make sure you sleep with iron under or above the bed (I sleep with a throwing axe).

✨Before you go to sleep tie a red yarn around your neck (loose enough to not harm you but tight enough not to snag while you sleep).

✨Wear the yarn for the duration of the next day and at nightfall cut it off and burn it. Dispose of the ashes in running water or at a crossroads.

These steps have never failed me so I offer them to do with as you will. The thing with rituals is you must repeat them so this is something that requires monthly maintenance at the very least in order to remain effective.
