bath time meditation: healing your body

Meditation and water are wedded forever.  -Herman Melville

We know that water can be very therapeutic, so take a moment with your next bath for some guided healing meditation.  I love this book Clean & Serene: Meditations for the Bath, a waterproof book full of meditations that can be done at bath time–a great stress relieving way to end the day!

Here is an excerpted meditation from the book to try out.

Waters of Healing: A Meditation for Good Health

Try the following to create the ideal bath time atmosphere:

1.  Add one tablespoon each of lavender, thyme and rosemary to your bath water to create a relaxing infusion.  They can be contained in a thin cotton bag to steep in the water like a tea bag.

2.  Light candles in the bathroom, as flames symbolize good healing.

3.  Drink rose hip tea, rich in vitamin C to boost your immune system.

4.  Arrange small bowls of fruit in the room as their natural scent will enhance the experience and serve as an offering to nature.

Visualize:  A bright light flickering inside of you.  Think of the flame expanding within you and emenating throughout your whole body with its warmth and healing abilities.

Say aloud:  Everyday I will listen to my body and take care of myself.  I will find the strength to create my own well-being by giving myself comfort, sympathy and pleasure.

Happy healing!
