I decided that if I were to build a time machine, it would look like this:
I am certain a vehicle such as this could take me anywhere I want to go in the universe.
I’m also pretty sure I’ve time traveled in the bath.
Two things happen in the bath. I am able to quiet my mind and the thoughts I do have are creative, not destructive.
The bath is my favorite place on earth.
I take frequent baths. Several times a week. It helps my joints stay flexible and pain-free, and it helps my mind stay that way too.
Baths help me maintain a sense of equanimity. It’s a place where I can let everything that concerns me float away. Astrologically, I’m a water sign, so it makes sense that I’m happiest when I’m submerged. I feel truly protected in the water.
Try this sometime:
- Add 1 lb. each of sea salt and baking soda
- Place clear quartz crystals that have been cleansed and activated around the edge of the tub
- Bless the water with love and gratitude
- Allow yourself to think or not think as mood dictates
- Request the company of angels (if you are so inclined)
What this bath will do is remove negative energy picked up during the course of one’s day and I can guarantee, it will make you feel like a brand new person when you get out, whether you are in for 10 minutes or an hour.
My relationship with water is special. I find that I tend to meditate in the shower and pray in the bath. I think it’s because I shower in the morning before work and I bathe at night before bed. Both of these rituals are important and contribute greatly to my spiritual life and my ability to stay sane in this chaotic world.
Time does not have to exist in the bath. This is why you can go wherever your mind will take you while you’re in there.
