CLEANSE

Begin Here

Start here to learn why we need to energetically cleanse.

*please excuse the happy kitties in this recording, Deborah recorded this after an early morning meditation"

RITUAL

If you are bathing:

Begin to run your bath. Turn down the lights in the sacred space you are creating. Add all ingredients to your bath (found below). Before you begin the ceremony, take time to clear your energy by moving a selenite wand around your body focusing it where you need it most. Place your obsidian crystal as well as any crystal allies** into the bath.  Light a candle. Cleanse your aura with the smoke of white sage. Place your hands over the water and say "you are love" three times. Next, turn on the ceremony (audio file found below). Step into the water and dunk your head underneath. And begin to breathe at your own pace taking two inhales through the nose and one exhale out of the mouth repetitively. 

Please feel free to add or subtract any of these ingredients to really make this experience your own. Other cleansing tools we like to use are apple cider vinegar and bentonite clay. 

CLEANSING RITUAL BATH

Love is the most powerful force in the universe. Some would even say that the universe is love. When we connect to the vibration of love through caring for ourselves, our plants, our animals, our families, the earth, everything that we are hanging onto that no longer serves us begins to dissolve. Outdated habits, patterns, beliefs, relationships that are no longer in the highest vibration of love for us, dissolve. When we are connected to that vibration of love, we become very, very grounded. This bath is to help you to connect to the love within you. 
 

RITUAL BATH INGREDIENTS:

4 to 5 cups of epsom salt

one pot of green tea

ten drops of lavender essential oil

fresh or dried organic rose petals

**Put all your non-water soluble crystals in this bath for example: smokey quartz, obsidian and amethyst. Refrain from putting salt based crystals e.g. selenite into your bath. 

If you are laying down:

Find a comfortable resting place on the floor or on your bed, Light your candle. Turn down the lights in the sacred space you are creating. Take time to  clear your energy by moving a selenite wand around your body focusing it where you need it most. Once you have found your resting place and begun the ceremony, place your obsidian crystal as well as any crystal allies anywhere you are feeling you are needing grounding. If you are unsure where to place your obsidian, I recommend your head or the space between your heart and your throat. Next, turn on the ceremony (audio file found below). Begin to breathe at your own pace taking two inhales through the nose and one exhale out of the mouth repetitively. 

If you are listening/walking:

Simply omit the breathing and spiritual tools (e.g. bath ingredients and crystals) noted above. You can listen to these recordings on your cell phone and take in the Medicine from anywhere.

We recommend listening to The Cleanse Ceremony with headphones ~ the sound will best travel this way. Adjust the volume to your liking as everyone will be hearing the sound differently.

Please note this Bespoke Ritual Bath has an accumulative effect and we encourage you to listen once or twice a week.

Please note to change your Auto-Lock Settings for the recording to continue to stream on your phone. For iPhone: Settings > Display & Brightness > Auto Lock > Change to Never.

Begin ceremony. Listen with your heart. 

 

FOR A DEEPER CLEANSE...
 

We recommend trying this Energetic Cleansing for two weeks following a Full Moon. You may begin to find that it is easy enough to continue and add to a regular self care routine.   

Try a plant based diet.

If you are in a crunch for time, our friends at Sakara Life have given us a a members perk (REF_MAMAMEDICINE15). On your own, make sure you include greens with every meal and trying to keep your diet to 90% plants. Superfoods like spirulina and hemp seeds contain the protein you need.

Get regular workouts in.

At least three times per week.

Honestly when it comes to working out, I’m a bit lazy but I know that moving my body is key to keeping my energy clear.  For spiritual people it’s so hard to accept that the body and the material world are just as important as the downloads and insights we receive. Yoga is my first love on this spiritual path, but I also love muay thai kickboxing for when I really just need to release. Our friends at HIT HOUSE have given our members a discount on single or six-pack classes: MM25.

Digital detox.

One day a week, challenge yourself to a digital detox by not touching your phone or. try to give yourself at least two hours before bedtime to unplug. Put your phone on airplane mode at night. Sophia Gushee of Detox your EMFS and A-Z detoxing are excellent resources for the art of unplugging.

 Journal at the end of the day to clear thoughts: Did you practice healthy energetic boundaries today? What were the lessons you received? How are you feeling? Were you able to stay focused on love? Were you able to embody yourself and do your own healing?

 

Additional spiritual practices for cleansing.

In addition to indulging in the ceremony above with Ritual Bath, try some of these techniques below.
 

  Once a week practice Trataka ( sanskrit for “to look” or “gaze”)   The practice of in a completely dark room, sit in an open eyed meditation and stare at a single flame, placed slightly above eye level, while trying not to blink for about ten minutes, the tears come and when we release tears we are cleansing our hearts and our intuition.

Tools for Cleansing: where to buy

 

*Deborah is using an Icaro (a Peruvian medicine song) which was taught to her by her teacher, a native Amazonian healer in the Mestizo Lineage.  Out of respect for him, we will keep him anonymous. . After an 8 year apprenticeship with him, the Amazon, and the plants she was asked in a coronation to sing and share the Icaros in her own ceremonies..

A portion of the proceeds from BYOH will be donated to the Amazon Watch. Deborah is personally working on a project to protect the indigenous peoples of the Peruvian Amazon and their land. 

*Please out of respect for the Icaros and the lineage they came,  do not share or replicate this sound healing experience.
