A lot of people take a shower to help them wake up in the morning so let’s have a look at how we can bring mindfulness into our shower routine and see this act with brand new eyes.
We shower to clean our bodies, but have you ever thought about cleaning your energy body as well? Events, emotions and feelings all carry a frequency and attaches itself to our energy body and it is good to remove old frequencies that no longer serve you to make space for better things. Water is an emotional element, so use this knowledge when you shower. As you wash yourself bring into your mind’s eye how you are washing away all the negative emotions and events as well.
Arch angel Gabriel
If you believe in Angels you can call upon Arch Angel Gabriel to cleanse the water flowing over you and you can ask him to purify your entire being with the water.
If you are familiar with shower meditations, this is also a very good way to bring mindfulness into the shower.
Just be present. Try to take a shower like you are experiencing it for the first time. The shower used to be one of the places I loved to think, but I realised that when I tried to conquer the world and find a solution to every problem that arise in my thoughts during that time, I don’t feel refreshed after I took a shower. I would just feel drained and I would shower for longer periods of time searching for more answers and the feeling of refreshment. It was only when I became mindful in the shower and removed the problems from the outside world that I got the best benefit from something as simple as taking a shower.
Blessing of the water
Bless the water as it flows over you. Not only for yourself but that same water running back to mother earth will recycle more love to Mother Gaia and the next person that uses it. Pay it forward. It is done with one small mindfulness act at a time.
Affirmation examples while in the shower:
I call upon Arch Angel Gabriel to cleanse the water flowing over me. Please poor over me your cup of purity. Wash me clean physically, energetically and emotionally. Wash away anything that is attached to me and no longer serves for my highest good. Shower me with your blessings and let these same blessings flow into the drain to Mother Earth and everyone else.
I am clean, I am pure and I am blessed, always. I thank you for your presence with gratitude and love. Namasté
