REVITALIZING BATHS

Originally published on Solzana.com on October 15, 2018

Baths rituals have been around since the beginning of time and are used all over the world in different cultures. Renowned for their healing and therapeutic properties, baths were used in ancient civilizations such as the Mayans and Egyptians for spiritual cleansing and meditation. Even if you don’t think of baths as a form of ritual, most of us have experienced bathing in some form. Whether you were a baby receiving your first bath or soaking in your kiddie pool to escape the heat during the hot summer months. These “bath rituals”, help connect with others and refresh the mind, body, and soul. All of us have benefited from some type of bath in our lives.

Baths truly have the power to purify the spirit and help manifest our wishes.

I am excited to share the below bath rituals that I use in conjunction with my manifesting spells and Reiki.

May these enhance your life and refresh your soul! Enjoy!

ABSOLUTE SUNSHINE BATH

This bath is used when I feel drained and I want to boost my energy!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Cup of Sea Salt
  • 2 Lemons – The Juice
  • Half a Cup of Honey
  • 1 Cup of Milk
  • A few sprigs of Mint or Lemon Grass (optional)

While filling your bath with hot water, sprinkle the sea salt, lemon juice, honey, milk, & mint/lemon grass. Stir in well so that all of the ingredients dissolve. As you get towards the end of filling up the bath, change the water temperature to cold, that way to balance out the heat of the bath until it is at a comfortable temperature. Careful not to scald yourself.

Before getting into the bath, take time to imagine that the water is turning into liquid gold that is radiating light energy. Concentrate on the belief that your body will soak in this energy and increase your vitality as well as help you attract more of what you wish for. Like bees to honey, you will attract abundance, health, and happiness.

For those that are Reiki attuned: Channel Reiki energy into the water to increase the power of the above intention.

Get in, relax, and enjoy!

LOVE POTION BATH

This bath is used to increase self-love and/or to attract love.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Cup of Sea Salt
  • Half a Cup of Honey
  • 1 Cup of Milk
  • Rose Petals

While filling your bath with hot water, sprinkle the sea salt, honey, milk, & rose petals. Stir in well so that all of the ingredients dissolve. As you get towards the end of filling up the bath, change the water temperature to cold, that way to balance out the heat of the bath until it is at a comfortable temperature. Careful not to scald yourself.

Before getting into the bath, take time to imagine that the water is radiating green and pink color light energy. Concentrate on the belief that the salt is a cleanser. That it will help release past traumas, fears, and any negative thoughts or feelings towards any past relationships or yourself. Imagine that the milk & honey will help heal all wounds and help attract true love and healing.

For those that are Reiki attuned: Channel Reiki energy into the water to increase the power of the above intention.

Remember, you must love yourself before you can love another. Get in, relax, and enjoy!

Finally Healed After One Year of Repurposement

mountshasta-sunset-500

It’s been exactly one year since I repurposed AKA retired.  I have to say that I recently had the honor and privilege to go on a much needed retreat with Blissful Massage.  It was such a beautiful experience.  Almost 3 days back home and I am still dwelling in the blissful experience.

We went to Stewart Mineral Springs Retreat in Weed, CA which is right outside Mt. Shasta.  I can only say, Wow.  It was so beautiful and peaceful.  It had a Creek running through the middle of the grounds.

It was such a healing experience.  Jody Davis of Blissful Massage and Amber Nicole, The Daily Healing, put together a very conscious uplifting retreat.  They are both Reiki Masters and there was burning sage, singing bowls, tuning forks and lots of love and nourishment.

Cocktails

Our meals were consciously prepared with love and nourishment.  Healthy juices, grains, fruit, vegetables, hummus and a magical ceremonial tea.  Did I say chocolate? Everything was ooey gooey dripping with love.  And there were 6 other beautiful women.  I have to admit, I was a little concerned about being with women that I did not know.  I was hoping they would keep their claws in.  I had fear about the women and hoping they were kind to me.

Well was I just so blessed.  I met some of the kindest most beautiful women.  I forgot my socks and Amber (a different Amber)  let me borrow a pair.  I didn’t have a hair tie and Linda gave me one.  They were so nurturing and kind.  I really appreciated their kindness.

Stewart Mineral  has these amazing mineral springs that is super healing.  Then we went in a sauna that was heated with firewood to be followed up a dip in the 45 degree creek.  It was so rejuvenating.  Wow I absolutely loved it.  There were beautiful trees and rocks and stars, birds.  I know my ancestors used to do this.  You see I am Native American.

The first night it rained and I really felt like it was God’s way of making sure there were no fires.  He wanted to protect us.  Think of Glinda in the Wizard of Oz making it snow.

We did some amazing yummy yoga nidra and I slept so good.  Also we did some amazing journaling.  OMG Jody came up with the most healing journal practice that brought us to our labels that we were given as children.  It was super healing and we did a ritual of releasing these false labels.  We also were roaring which was so fun!!

We went to a beautiful Labyrinth and it was just so healing.  There were healing trees and prayers galore.  You can write a prayer and tie it to a tree.  Lots of crystals and malas, crosses and statues.  We walked around there barefoot and could feel the grounding energy of our dear sweet Mother Earth.

These are real rose quartz crystals that are here to make this alter.  Nobody takes them because that would be really bad luck.

So I can now say one year later that I am feeling so nourished, supported and loved.  I honestly owe it to this retreat full of beautiful women that were so kind and supporting and loving.  I want to thank each one of them for their beauty.  I made some great friends and we are staying in touch.

I left out the part where we went to downtown Mt. Shasta and I admit I went a little insane in this crystal shop.  I couldn’t resist all of the beautiful crystals.  Just so beautiful.  Crystals just brighten up my day.  They are completely natural and I just want their beautiful healing energy around me.  I’d buy a crystal any day over something plastic.  Also when I’m no longer here, my family will have these beautiful rocks to remember me.

I am so thankful and blessed for the opportunity to go on this retreat.  My hope and prayer is that you will be able to carve out a little time and go on a retreat to reset, recharge and get back to who you really are.  You little Rock Star you.  You’ve forgotten your greatness.  Your job is to find your greatness.  If you need help, just ask.  May you have a long life and peace, joy and love in your heart for all eternity.

Interview with a Psychic

Chakra-locations

I first met Mayra at a Health and Wellness Fair in the North San Francisco Bay Area.  She gave me the most amazing Tarot Card reading.  The absolute best I’ve ever had.  Let’s just say December is going to be the most amazing month.

She went to San Jose State and majored in marketing.  When I saw her booth set up, it made complete sense because her booth was so inviting. It had some beautiful soft fluffy blankets and some plush cushions.

After she graduated, she did the usual of working very hard to climb the corporate ladder.  But she was finding things very difficult and she decided to quit her job and move back home as she felt very lost.  This was a difficult time when the unthinkable happened. A dear close relative ended up with a life threatening disease and she was actually able to assist her mother who was at Reiki II practitioner at the time.

Recently I had the opportunity to sit down with Mayra a Clairvoyant  who is also a Blue Lotus Reiki Master/Teacher  and Medium who also does Tarot and Card and Oracle readings at https://www.solzana.com.   She is a Clairvoyant who like most healers began with the realization of self healing.  She had gone to a workshop called Meet your Angel at The Mystic Dream in Walnut Creek, CA and she went into a deep meditation and met her Arch Angel Michael.  He showed her that her hands were filled with light and that’s when her journey to Reiki began.

I asked Mayra since she’s a Clairvoyant, how does she get her messages?  She said usually it is not like a picture but it is through her third eye or mind’s eye she is able to have recurring thoughts or visions of different things.  And the thought will repeat in her mind and that’s how she is able to give her reading.  She has the benefit of speaking with the Spirits so she can hear them, she can see them which means that they convey images or colors and then she translates it to what makes sense.

I asked Mayra if she’s ever experienced synchronicity.  She said yes that everything she does is like being guided by the Universe.   When on the wrong path, everything becomes very difficult.  She has to work very hard at whatever it is she is trying to do. Whether it be a job or a relationship.  When you are on the right path everything is facilitated for us.  Things tend to flow smoothly and you have a huge sense that you are on the right path.

She indicated she was coping with illness of a family member and she was reevaluating her life as she felt lost.   While going through this difficult time she read the book, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho  It says that things will happen smoothly when you are following your path.  When she read that book she felt extremely lost and didn’t know what to do.  She was trying to force her life into what life expects of you. It’s a story of a guy is traveling the world and he noticed that whenever he’s going against his path or journey it’s harder.  And when he goes into the right direction everything just becomes easier and falls into place.  Mayra learned that family is the most important and that we must value and live each day sit could be your last.

Now she she’s doing her passion, everything is so much easier. For questions you can contact Mayra and she offers services in Tarot and Oracle Card Readings, Reiki, chakra balancing and House/Business blessings and atonement for all levels of Reiki but the most important thing is to find somebody that you are comfortable with.

Mayra advises that if you go to a mystical shop and they have free sessions, go try the free sessions.  See what you feel comfortable with.  Do you feel comfortable with these teachings and this practice.  She welcomes anyone to email her through her website or a phone conversation when she’s available.    There are so many different healing methods and she wants her clients to feel comfortable with her and healing process and their own journey.  You can email here at Solzanahealing@gmail.com.

This was a very informative interview for me and if you want to meet Mayra, she will be facilitating  a Reiki Share event in Vacaville, CA at Bounty Books on September 26, 2018 at 7:00 PM.  Space is limited and you may contact Bounty Books directly for more information.
