“Empaths are highly attuned, sensitive individuals who have a natural connection to the subtle worlds. These are the subtle worlds of thought, emotion, spirit and energy. These people tend to be artistic, intuitive and right-brained individuals who process the world around them through “feeling”.”
It is essential for empathic people to take time for rest and relaxation. This is how you disconnect from harmful energies, and recharge yourself so that you feel more vital. I urge you to make a daily ritual of this. You will find yourself improving every day.
A powerful way to recharge your essence, and bring yourself to center is through the ritual of bathing. Bathing has been a powerful form of energetic cleansing for thousands of years, and it offers you a chance to charge your energy with good intention.
Adding crystals to your bathwater will create a unique vibration that can infuse the aura, and invigorate the spirit. I have created a simple bath for empaths. Try this and see how you feel.
Crystal Bath for Empaths
Gather 3 crystals: Citrine, Amethyst, and Rose Quartz.
Citrine is the path opener stone. It pushes out negative vibrations and enhances the aura to a state of wellbeing. Amethyst is a stone of protection, and clarity, opening the third eye to help with clear intuitive perception. Amethyst will also act as a vacuum for holding unnecessary energies. Rose Quartz is a heart stone, releasing any bound up energies that may be clogging the heart center.
Combined together, these 3 stones create a calming, healing and stabilizing vibration that will benefit anyone, especially the empath.
Also gather essential oils of lavender, rosemary and geranium.
To create your sacred bath fill you tube half full with warm water. Make sure that the temperature suites a relaxing state of mind. This is a type of meditation, and isn’t meant for bathing with soap. You are creating a sacred moment.
Add to the water 3-5 drops of each oil. Be sure to do this as the water runs, dropping them under the spout so that the oils are dispersed evenly through the bath. You can even drop the oils in ½ cup of witch hazel, and then pour them into the bath.
Now place each stone into the water, focusing on their specific vibration. Ask for their energies to infuse the bath, and charge your aura to bring you into equilibrium, and honor your highest good.
When the bath is ready, simply step in and sink down. Let yourself melt into the calming presence of the scents of the botanicals, the vibration of the crystals and the serenity of being alone, and in the moment.
Release anything that seems to be troubling you. Imagine that it is flowing out, into the water, and transformed by the healing properties. Let yourself be filled with light, and vitality. Feel this in every fiber of your being. You are glowing.
Set an intention for yourself. Affirm that you are safe, balanced and whole. Affirm that you are in this moment, now… fully present, open to the shift, and completely deserving of this gift.
Stay there for at least 15 minutes, or as long as you like. When you are finished express a feeling of gratitude. Towel yourself dry, and turn in for the evening.
