Preparing the Ultimate Spiritual Bath

Preparing the Ultimate Spiritual Bath

  I think it's safe to say that just about everyone has taken a bath at some point in their lives. Can you remember how soothing it felt and how relaxed you felt after? As a matter of fact, baths are most parents go-to for bedtime routines to get those little ones simmered down for the night. Water has always been sought after for its calming abilities.

Phases of the Womb

    Back when shamanism was a highly respected practice, the woman was seen as highly intuitive and an important figure in society (still my belief).

Befriending the Ego

    The Ego. A word that has been used loosely in our society to mean confident, in a more cocky sense. The ego is better described as your conscious mind - who you choose to identify as. The ego is born in childhood, as you learn to control the Id - your primitive, irrational human instinct. Social conditioning helps to mold the ego by teaching yourself what is socially acceptable and what is not. This isn't always a "good" thing as your ego is also responsible for urges to fit in and feel socially accepted. This means shutting down who you...
