Soul Washing to Attend to the Contents of Your Personal, Interior Space
Soul Washing is a ritual for deep self care. It is a time to check in with the contents of our interior, see what is there that needs tending to and offering it nurturing and care. If we have been especially busy, overworked or just come through a crisis of some sort, Soul Washing is a good thing to do.In this ritual we are washing and refreshing our interior space. It is different than the sweep because the sweep cleans the outside, the skin. Here we are reaching for our internal, private, vulnerable soul space, what lies within, the place only we have access to and that only we know completely, or can know completely.
For this ritual you will need:
A fire (either a fire in a fireplace, wood stove or outdoor fire pit. If you do not have access to these, a candle will do) Milk (any kind you prefer)
Healing charcoal if you have it.
Hyssop essential oil (optional)
One raw egg
A bowl large enough to hold the egg covered with milk
