Cleansing Bath and Protection Work
1. Prepare your cleansing spiritual water. Gather these herbs (dried versions of the herbs are acceptable and if you plan on using this cleansing mixture for several days in a row, it is permissible to make up a big batch of it and keep it in the fridge). 4 sprigs of rosemary 3 Bay Leaves 2 bunches of fresh basil 2 oz of fennel 1 sprig of fresh dill The suggested number of days to take is bath is at least three if you need only a light cleansing to 13 days if you need a heavy duty cleansing. Heat up your herbs in a microwave safe container and let the herbs infuse in the heat. Strain your herbs. While your infusion is still hot, pour them into a suitable container (I like either a bowl or one of those tall plastic drink pourers with a spout that you might put ice tea or lemonade in). Take it to your shower, get your shower started, and before you get in, pray a cleansing prayer such as “I claim my spiritual cleansing by the blood of Jesus Christ whom I confess to be my Savior and my Lord” or other prayer that is suitable for you.
2. Once in the shower, dip your wash cloth into the infusion, and with a downward motion, clean yourself with the mixture. At the very end of your shower, pour the remaining infusion over your head and pray to be cleansed.
3. For a minimum of 3 days, perform the following Protection form Evil Influences candle ritual:
What you will need is 1 candle to represent you, one purple candle, and protection incense. As you light your candles, pray the following:
In the Name which is above every other name, and in the power of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, I exorcise all seeds and influences of evil. I lay upon them the spell of Christ’s Holy Church, that they may be bound fast as with chains and cast into outer darkness, that they trouble not the servants of God (Dion Fortune)
Or recite Psalm 1: Psalm 1 (English Standard Version)
The Way of the Righteous and the Wicked
1 Blessed is the man[a] who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
2 but his delight is in the law[b] of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.
4 The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; 6 for the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
4. At the conclusion of your candle work, it is time to seal your working with a protection bath; for cleansing leaves an empty space in you that needs to be filled in. Make up a small batch of water, rue, sea salt, and a splash of 4 Thieves Vinegar or your pee or ammonia. Dip your fresh unused wash cloth into the mixture and with an upward motion, say this prayer: I have faith for God is my guard, my security, my protection.
