Ritual baths have been a wellness tradition in many ancestral cultures.
Here are a few suggestions to make this divine connection with your most sacred self in a day where the winter begins and we connect to the openness and quietude of darkness. You can also use these suggestions for the spring and fall equinoxes and the summer solstice.

These are only suggestions, you will intuitively know exactly what to do to nurture yourself in this intimate moment of receiving light for the seasonal change. Listen to your intuition to make this the best for your soul’s solace.
Make this bath as beautiful as you want. Imagine that you are bathing in water that is alive in beautiful divine energy (see Dr. Emoto’s images of water crystals when imbued with beautiful energies like love or gratitude https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAvzsjcBtx8 ). Only send to the water your highest vibration so that the energy is all loving kindness. Clear the space in the bathroom and make it as beautiful as possible so that you feel that you are immersing in your purest infinite light. See your intentions in the salt crystals and then on the water.
Before the bath. Open the salts and place them in a bowl at the bottom of your tub (without water) with a candle safely lit and a crystal stone by it; this will help create the highest vibration in your tub. I like quartz, for it magnifies and harmonizes energies well. With your intentions poured on to the salt crystals, surrender to your highest vibration and to the divine feminine, however you conceive this.
If you want to, you can do this in silence or you can play meditative music or a visualization that helps you connect deeply from your highest self.
Before the solstice, once you have cleared the bathtub energetically, prior to the bath meditate 20 or 30 minutes on your intentions for 2019 and see yourself bathed in divine light, deep bliss and peace.
Right before the solstice, in the intimacy of your bathroom, anoint yourself with oils that deeply connects with your vibration. Intuitively massage to open your energetic fields to receive. Wrists, feet, neck, forehead, crown are important.
Light a candle safely in one or as many corners of your tub as you’d like. Now pick up your bowl of salts and your candle. Now, hold the salts up and offer them to the infinite creator or higher power of your understanding and say your intentions our loud as you hold your salts up asking for all your energy to be lifted and transformed into divine love and a blessing for this earth, for your peace is also the peace with all your circles and their circles’ circles. Remember that in this space, you want to only use positive soul language.
Now open the flow of water. Fill the bathtub with a water temperature that is comfortable for you to sit in for at least 20 minutes. As you watch it flow, send a prayer of forgiveness to all beings and feel this light open deep into your energetic layers a space of loving quietude. Breathe in deeply this harmony and this peace. Remember that anything that is released into the water will free you from lower energies as we move forward to 2019.
When the tub is filled to your liking, grab your bowl with salts and pour them in the water. Say out loud what you desire to shift or bring forth. Stir them a little so they dissolve. Now enter into the bath and sink into this delicious divine peace you have created. The energies infused in the slats will make you feel and deeply understand that you are infinitely loved. Use your little bowl to wash yourself. Make sure to have a bath towel by you so that you do not splash it into your eyes but feel free to pour over your crown and your back. Open all your vessels and meridians to receive the highest frequency from heaven and earth. Sink into the love of mother divine that has blessed these salts and meditate in this delicious silence.
After you emerge, do not rinse the bath from your body, let the electromagnetic energy stay on your skin over night. You may use oils or a lotion to help your skin be yummy. But the salts ar designed to help your skin. Neem is awesome for this.
Wrap yourself in delicious towels and if possible, go and rest and immerse yourself in the surrender and openness of divine feminine for another quiet 20 minutes. Do not think. Do not expect. Just feel the divine seeds growing in every cell of your being and let your light shine on to your loving circles. Your creative powers will be opened, renewed, and you will be ready to receive 2019 in a deep self-love as you are awakening the divine empathy and compassion for your being. Your stillness will be the rock of the world in all directions of time. Sit still in gratitude for this blessing.
I have prayed over these salts since 11/1/19 and they have taken in the beautiful energy of the light, the leaves, of the oils and all the Qigong movement prayer that have been poured onto all these. Allow these waves of love to transform your creative energies and to bring much needed love to the world. Let your light shine!
When you finish use a sieve or paper towels to capture all the herbs so that you do not clog your drain. You can also choose to just steep the salts in the bag they are in. These are organic bags so you can submerge them into the water as if you were making a huge cup of tea.

El Tule Institute was created in October 2012 by Dr. Martha Perez, with over 27 years experience as an educator and eco focused life coach via Haitian drumming and dance spiritual traditions.
This collaborative center has evolved from the vision of a brick and mortar physical space to a virtual space for workshops, collaborative projects, educational presentations and technical art that encompasses music, movement, mindfulness, visual art, and a combination of modalities creating synthesis in new ways of expression. This shift in focus is in line with global changes resulting from the Covid 19 pandemic and need for social distancing.
