Sunday we discussed in detail how to create your own magickal bath. If you haven’t read it yet, read here to get you started before you plan for a Wednesday Magickal Bath.
Wednesday is the right time to strengthen the intellect. Learning, problem solving, understanding the world around us and applying our knowledge with wisdom are all very important parts of our growth as individuals.
Whether you’re learning something new (and aren’t we always?) or enhancing what you have already learned for application, you can perform a magickal bath to help this process and keep you sharp.
The colours associated with intellect are blue, orange and yellow. Choose the colour that you really connect with since this is all about your mind.
Herbs and plants that can be used are balm of Gilead, lemon and rosemary. Rosemary is really affective for improving focus and retention of information. (Go easy with rosemary in aromatherapy it can be very strong and cause headaches. Do not put rosemary oil in the tub, it shouldn’t come into contact with mucous membranes.)
Tiger’s eye and topaz are the perfect stones to work with. You can have a cleansed and charged pendant to wear whenever you are learning, reading or observing.
The number 6 is associated with intellect. I like to use 6 ingredients in this bath. You can have a mix of candles, herbs, stones that all add up to six. Or you can repeat your incantation 6 times. These are just suggestions get creative! Do what speaks to you.
For this bath, instead of burning incense I like to diffuse essential oils. Incense sometimes makes me feel a little hazy, but a fresh burst of lemon essential oil in the air snaps me to attention.
Your incantation can go something like this:
Focused are my thoughts.
Strong is my mind.
Knowledge and wisdom
in my mind, entwine.
I retain what I learn,
my mind is strong,
knowledge and wisdom in my mind, belong.
