Water - The Bathroom
Care, Wisdom, Tranquility, and Healing
The room of cleansing - The place we renew
Water transforms Earth.
Water quenches Fire.
Water saturates Air.
Water is an essential element in your home. It helps you create a space and place for tranquility, peace, nurturing and cleansing.
One excellent way to incorporate Water into your home is by creating altars that reflect the
element of water. On that altar, by representing water, you invite it into your self and home. If you love plants --- bring in a lucky bamboo plant! It loves low light, humidity, and provides cleansing and healing! Additionally, ritual baths and showers can support you in your daily life.
Other excellent ways to incorporate water into your life are to engage directly with the element! Get outside and connect by dipping a toe in the ocean, splashing in a puddle, dancing in the rain, taking a deep breath as you watch that same rain move across your windshield, or watching a storm pass.
It’s not often that people consider the bathroom a sacred space. Too often we are wrapped up about how clean the bathroom is, or whether or not the toilet paper roll has been filled or if the toothpaste cap is on. If you have not considered it before, the bathroom should be considered one of the most sacred rooms in your home!
So often we forget to take time just for us! The bathroom is one of those rare spaces that, in general, when we say we need time alone, we will be left alone. Consider taking time in that space just-for-you!
Spending time in a sacred space, just for ourselves allows us to understand ourselves on a deeper level and allows us to be more full. It allows our personal magic to work more clearly and wholly. Working to enhance our personal understanding of who we each are creates nourishment for our souls and in all things, access to Self (capital S) and to the tranquility we all deserve.
Additional benefits of focusing on your bathroom space will not only enhance your own personal tranquility but for those who also use that space! Look at what you hang on the walls, the colors you work with to decorate, and how you are enhancing your space with smells. Rituals in that space that work through meditation and specific rituals around the element of water will activate the sacred energy of your personal space. Consider spending your time intentionally and doing your magical work for healing, tranquility, and peace. You won’t be disappointed!
