When my friend Laura attended her first Ayahuasca ceremony in Peru years ago, she remembered the Shaman opening the ceremony by telling everyone to pour a little bit of Aqua de Florida into the palms of their hands, and to apply it to the back of their necks, onto their face, etc…it was refreshing and seemed to make her feel uplifted. Later, the Shaman would actually put some into their mouths and would blow a fine mist over each participant, clearing any negative energy. Since then, She has experienced this ritual being used with many different types of formulas and recipes. She now uses the practice of spraying a fine mist over herself before she meditates, prays, or participates in any plant medicines ceremonies. Her daughter Brianna, is a Kambo practitioner, sound healer, and Cacao Ceremonialist. She came up with this particular formula, and they have used only the finest essential oils and ingredients in it’s creation. It is very refreshing, and smells so amazing that I use it many times every day!
These are some of the Ways to Use our favorite energy cleansing spray, Zen Spray!
- To comfort and uplift the sick. When a pet, child or adult is under the weather you can bring comfort and healing to them by inviting this spirit in. Take a small amount into your palms and then stroke or caress your loved one (into their scalp, onto cheeks, back or extremities- following your instincts).
- To clear your energetic field. Spray it directly onto your palms and rub it onto the back of your neck, arms, and face. My husband likes to spray it directly onto his face.
- A way to open your senses prior to meditation or a shamanic journey. Take a small amount into your hands and rub between your palms. Smell the essence, reminding yourself to open all of your senses (smell, touch, taste, hearing, knowing…)
- To raise your vibration. Do you have a stressful meeting at work coming up? An unavoidable encounter with somebody who triggers you? Before setting foot in the meeting or encounter, splash yourself with the Zen Spray and set a powerful intention. For example: I am safe and divinely guided. Everything is working out for me.
- To clear a space (after there has been an argument or a lot of grief/heavy emotion expressed etc). Fill a spray bottle with purified water and add a few capfuls of Zen Spray. Spritz with the intention to clear the space. Begin by spraying around the perimeter of the room and again spray in the center of the space. Or (another option that is effective!) add a few capfuls to your mop bucket and mop away the heavy energy.
- As a sleep aid. Pour a capful into your hands and spread on yourself and jammies from crown to feet while holding the intention to find deep rest and relaxation. You could bless your pillow with a few drops too!
- To calm an anxious child or adult in need. Is a child or adult feeling nervous or anxious about an event or a bad dream? Take a small amount of the Zen Spray into your hands and bless them from crown to feet. (or you can put the Agua onto a feather and fan them head to toe). Add extra hugs!
- To cleanse the sacred tools on your altar or in your home. I do this with the crystal suncatchers I use in my windows when they get dusty. I soak them briefly in water with a capful of Zen Spray. Then, I thank them for all the beautiful energies they bring and for the bright rainbows they cast on my walls and floors.
- Remember: YOU are the medicine! The way you feel most inspired to work with this beautiful essence will be the most powerful!
