Many people cleanse or bless their home to rid it of unclean spirits/negative energy by means of sage and repeating positive affirmations, mantras, or spells. It is just as important to rid your body of energy that you have picked up from other people, different environments, or the ones you have created yourself.
Spiritual baths are a wonderful way to rid yourself of stagnate and negative energy. I believe they should be done at the LEAST once a month, but whenever you feel it is necessary will work as well. Spiritual baths can be viewed as a process of detoxification. People who have taken detox baths may realize that many ingredients can be used for spiritual baths. The only difference is your intention or purpose.
Detox baths remove toxins from the body that you have acquired from eating, psychological stress, and your environment. They can also be used for ailments such as muscle pain, arthritis, the common cold, yeast infections, and constipation. Epsom salt itself is a powerful agent that can be used as a remedy due to it being made of magnesium. My undergrad Health Science professor drilled the many benefits of magnesium into me and my classmates' psyche, which I am forever grateful for. Every class he would mention several ailments and the cure always included magnesium. For example, constipation is trapped waste/energy in your body. The use of magnesium in the form of Epsom Salt can help relieve you of the problem. However, prolong relief will require a change in diet and lifestyle.
Spiritual baths provide the same detoxing properties, but with a focus on energy release for spiritual reasons. This energy is weighing you down and can be preventing you from manifesting certain things in your life. However, prolong relief will require a change in your thoughts and lifestyle.
