Modern medicine is beginning to comprehend the healing wisdom of the Maya and other ancient cultures. How we feel affects how we function. Studies have shown that when we are happy we tend to be healthy. There is a link between many physical illnesses and unresolved emotional stress and distress. Neuroscience is beginning to explain how brain chemistry affects our mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
The Maya, as with traditional cultures worldwide, recognize diseases of the spirit as well as the body and are aware that there are both energetic and physical causes of illness. Many cultures (i.e.: Christian, Muslim, Jewish and many others), had a form of spiritual bathing and ritual cleansing in their history, and that is true for Maya civilizations as well.
From ancient indigenous wisdom we have learned Maya Spiritual Healing which uses water, plants, prayers (appropriate to your faith), bodywork, and incense to facilitate a release of ‘stuck energies and entities’ to facilitate a deep spiritual cleansing. It is a unique way of touching and healing the heart and unlocking the wisdom of spirit, and rebalancing and harmonizing the human aura or energy field so that we can attract good into our lives and repel that which does not serve our divine and highest purpose.
Traditionally the Maya people have used spiritual bathing as part of their healing practices. A spiritual bath is a method that can rid the body of spiritual dis-ease, by clearing stagnant energy, reconnecting you to the boundless Universal Energy and help remove obstacles that may be blocking your life journey.
The Maya refer to the divine energy that flows throughout our bodies as Chu’lel, in traditional Chinese medicine this energy flow is called ‘Chi’. A Spiritual Bath helps to restore and rebalance that flow of energy. By using the vibrational power of water to act as a carrier for the healing power of the plant world, affirmation and intention a Spiritual bath can literally wash away negativity, energetic blocks, fear, anxiety and general emotional upset.
This healing work addresses the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies of each individual in such a way as to return that person to vitality, peace and well-being. Thus, we are better able to lay down the baggage from the past to realize the fullest potential of a human being as intended by the Divine Creator.
Discover your true and divine authentic self and realize the healing capacity of rebalancing mind/body/spirit.
What to expect in a dedicated auric harmonizing and balancing session
Together we will take a moment to set the intention for this ceremony.
You begin being brushed with fresh herbs, to remove negative attachments or energies, and enter a safe space created for you to hold the healing process.
After changing into a sarong, you are seated in a peaceful space as sacred copal incense from Belize begins to drift around you. The practitioner directs this smoke around your physical body, moving the healing experience into the subtle bodies as a pulse diagnosis is made. Prayers, appropriate to your faith, are directed into the pulse points inviting the divine agents of healing into the sacred ceremony.
Each personalized bucket of water holds the charged plants and herbs which were gathered earlier in the day with gratitude, intention, prayer and reverence to aid in bringing their infinite powers to your bath. An aspersion begins with fingertips, bundled herbs or certain holy leafy branches opening the door to your own inner guidance.
Once the bath is completed, you sit in quiet meditation as integration takes place, followed by tea and light nourishment. This experience can be quite transformative, so please allow ample time to assimilate your senses.
Spiritual Bathing leaves a person calm, more centered and reflective. Each person’s experience will be their own unique transformation.
“It is folly to ignore the sacred in life or medicine. Skirting the spiritual has had a shattering effect on every dimension of contemporary existence.” – Rosita Arvigo
