Ever feel like you hardly have time for meditation because life has you going in circles? Are you in need of some soothing relaxation with spirit?
One of the best places to meditate is in the shower.
You take showers already, so this is a perfect oasis to open the channel of communication with the Universe!
We come from the water in our mother’s womb, we are made up of 70% of water, and our energy flows as water does. It makes sense that as the water flows down your skin, under the shower head, you can make this a place for peace of mind.
I like to do this practice at least 3 times per week, preferably at night but it works for morning showers as well.
Here are some amazing techniques to create the ambiance for complete oneness with mind, body and spirit.
Step 1: Prepare your Oasis
Light some candles (1 or more is fine). The fire from the candle is a portal that opens up for our ancestors, spirit guides and angels to communicate with us. This is the doorbell to the ancestral realms, and it let’s them know you would like to connect. Your higher self will appreciate this simple step.
Step 2: Play Soft Meditation Music
The music will allow you to calm down and relax, and also give you a rhythm in which to calm your breaths. It will also feel really good, as if you are in a personal waterfall. You may actually travel to another dimension in this state.
Step 3: Set Your Water Temperature
Set your water temperature just right. Make it warm enough that you will be able to put your entire body under the water; face, hair and all.
This is your time to connect with the water and deeply cleanse, so make it special!
Step 4: Bring in your Mobile Alter (Optional)
Now this is optional. You don’t have to have an ancestor alter, and if you don’t have one that is perfectly fine.
What this does, is usher in the spirits of your ancestors and lets them know that you are thinking of them and want to connect. It is a great addition to your meditation but not necessary. They will hear you.
Altar Materials Can Be:
Pictures of deceased loved ones, angels, guardians
Incense (frankencinse and myrrh are great) of your choice
Step 5: Set An Alarm (If you have too)
If you have to go to work, an important meeting or simply somewhere to be, set an alarm. This practice does not have to take long at all.
I suggest this practice be at least 5 minutes if that is all you can squeeze in. There is no judgment, so be true to yourself. If you can go longer, great!
Step 6: Shower or Bath Time!
Once you are in the shower or bath, as you wet your body express gratitude. Give thanks for the new day, for breathe, life and everything you are thankful for. Allow this to open up your meditation session.
Give thanks to your angels, ancestors, spirit guides etc..thank the water, thank your body , your higher self and so forth.
Mentally state your affirmations over and over as you calm your breaths.
Inhale & hold for 5 seconds. Breathe out slowly. Do this at least 10 times repetitively .
Now what I like to do is sit cross legged on the bottom of the shower floor for at least 15 minutes. ( Yes you just might get wrinkly but it’s worth it).
Close your eyes as you feel the warm shower running down the lower half of your body.
Feel all of the sensations happening internally and externally. Allow whatever is happening, and focus on your breath. Begin to slowly silence your thoughts. Use this time to listen to the meditation music, and drift off within.
No thinking, just listening.
If you notice thoughts arising, let them pass. Just continue to be taken away for the duration of your oneness.
Tap in and tune into all of the vibrations internally and externally.
Once you have completed your meditation, go ahead and cleanse yourself. Wash your temple with the ultimate care. Look at your delicate skin, and scrub with love.
When you get out make sure to keep the candles burning. Keep the flames of conversation with spirit going.
The energy is still flowing, and it expresses love to the Universe.
Remember you are spirit and spirit is you, make time for SELF!
