The milk bath is commonly prescribed for healing women of specifically female issues. Issues of violation, rape, incest, assault, transgression against our female body and being. This healing may be extended to an entire female lineage as one does it, biological or otherwise or to one ancestress in particular who would benefit from it. Offering healing through our physical embodiment for one who no longer has a body is a common prescription. Men who are transgressed against in this way may also use this ritual as a way to heal and cleanse these violations.For this ritual you will need:4 cups of milk (any milk you choose is fine)A bathtubCandlesOne raw eggWood ash or salt
The basic sweep or “dompla” in the Dagara tradition is a very common ritual prescribed often in divinations when one needs “dirt” cleaned off them. This “dirt” can collect for any number of reasons. We often do not need to know why. It is common to need a sweep. Alarm need not be present in this ritual.
If you feel “icky,” psychically burdened, emotionally weighted down, victim to “bad luck” or if you are physically ill, a sweep may very well be needed. It always feels remarkably good to receive a sweep and is equally potent to be the one doing the sweeping.
