Rituals For Calming and Releasing Stress
There is no way to avoid stress. Everyone will experience it at one time or another. Uncontrolled stress does not only feel bad, it can negatively impact your health, your love life, and your success. Still, even though you may not be able to control the stressful things in your life, you can control how you respond to them. Here are some ways you can manage your stress on the spiritual level:
Get a Good Night's Sleep
Agitation and anxiety can harm your sleep, and sleeping poorly can add to your stress. Turn your bedroom into a peaceful sanctuary -- do not read or use your phone in bed, decorate your room in calming colors, and bring in lots of fresh air. Place an amethyst cluster on your nightstand next to your bed, and tuck an anti-stress dream pillow into your regular bed pillow. Sprinkle some Peace sachet powder into the corners of the room. Before going to bed, close your eyes, clear your mind, and say,
I ask that all doors, windows, and gateways
To tranquility and my higher good
And that all doors, windows, and gateways
To things that would do me harm
Take a Peace-Drawing Bath
Spiritual baths surround you with the powerful vibrations of herbs and oils, allowing you to absorb their properties directly into your aura. Start by lighting a candle -- either a Peace & Tranquility or Corderito Manso candle will do. Draw a bath of warm, clean water, and add some Peace water. Immerse yourself in the bath, allowing the warmth and calming, tranquil scents to fill your senses. When you feel that the bath has done its job, step out, allow yourself to dry, and put on some clean, soft clothing. If you like, you can also dust yourself with Calm sachet powder for extra power.
Create a Peace Candle
If you like, you can create your own peace-promoting candles filled with your specific intention. Start with a plain white or blue candle. Anoint it with Calm magical oil or clary sage essential oil. Carve symbols or words of your intention into the wax with a pin, knife, or tip of a crystal point -- this can be a peace sign, a dove, a sun, the word "Calm," or any relaxing words or images you can think of. If you like, you can roll the candle in Peace In The Home sachet powder. When the candle is ready, hold it in both hands. Visualize it filling with a calming, golden light. Say...
With this candle,
I bring the light of peace into my home.
All stress and tension must leave,
And only tranquility may remain.
This is my will,
So it shall be.
Place it somewhere safe, where it will not be disturbed. When you need some relaxation, light the candle, sit, and meditate until your mind is calm again.
Protect Your Aura
Sensitive people can feel stress simply by being near stressed-out people. Take steps to shield your energy by picturing yourself surrounded by a shield of light every time you leave your home. It is also a good idea to wear a black tourmaline pendant, as this stone is excellent at helping you shield yourself from negative energy. Wearing an amethyst bracelet on the wrist of your non-dominant hand can also help you remain calm and stress-free, while it shields your aura against negativity.
Stress and anxiety can come from a million different sources, and negatively impact your life in a million different ways. Do not let stress get the best of you -- use these small rituals to help yourself relax, unwind, and stay happy and healthy.
