Shower or Bathtub Litany
This magical ritual helps you get rid of excess Fire energies. In magical terms water carries fire so this ritual works by taking excess Fire energy from your body, mind, and Spirit, and flowing it down the drain with water. For this ritual to work, you combine your intention with some visualization and the magic litany. Using this litany before going to bed can help release stress and tension and get you relaxed and ready for sleep.
The litany can be done in a bathtub filled as full as possible with cool water. Do not use cold water. Instead have the water just below body temperature. Or it can be done in a shower with the showerhead set so the water is hitting you at the base of the skull and running over your back and front sides. Again the water should be just below body temperature, cool but not cold.
In the shower, run your hands down your body to move your Fire energy down to your feet. In the bathtub, lie down in the tub with your feet at the drain and as much of your body as possible under the water. Then see yourself radiating fire energies out of your body and mixing with the water. As you see this and see the water going down the drain in the shower or as you open the drain on the bathtub, repeat the following litany out loud.
All the tension, all the strain,
All the pain with excess flame,
Flow with water, down the drain!
Keep saying it until you feel that the flame is gone in the shower or until all the water has drained out of the bathtub. Speak the litany with authority and power.
Creating Sacred Space for Sleeping
For those who wake up frequently with nightmares, you can burn a yellow or electric blue colored candle in the room. For safety reasons, we recommend using a candle that is enclosed in glass. Do the following steps 30 minutes to an hour before you are ready to go to bed.
Stand or sit in the south facing north with the candle in front of you.
Light the candle with paper or wooden matches. Do not use a lighter.
Hold your hands up to and around the flame, focusing your attention on the candle and flame.
Say the following charge verse in a strong, powerful voice.
Child of Wonder,
Child of Flame,
Nourish My Spirit,
And Protect My Aim!
Continue standing or sitting with the candle in front of you for a few minutes while you visualize your aim of having a peaceful night with uninterrupted sleep. Leave the candle burning for at least 30 minutes and then blow it out (don't snuff it out) Once your sleeping space is cleared of junky energies, it will remain that way through the night.
