Water energy is flowing, free, and mysterious. When I think of water energy I think of cleansing, healing, psychic abilities, emotions, the subconscious, purification, and intuition. If you are trying to tap into this energy you should think of the healing and cleansing aspect of it. What do you need to heal from and why do you need to cleanse. This all has to do with our emotional well being and how we feel overall. I like to tap into water energy in a couple of different ways.
One of my favorite ways to use water energy is by taking a spiritual bath. I love doing this especially if I am stressed and picked up on a bunch of negative energy that needs to be removed. I fill up the bathtub with really hot water that I can handle. I then sprinkle Epsom salt in the water. I like to use a lot, but use as much as you would like. I then add essential oils. I usually use lavender, eucalyptus, or frankincense & myrrh. I add herbs as well such as rose petals, chamomile, lavender, and sunflowers. Lastly I will add vanilla or coconut scented bubbles. Again you can use whatever oils, herbs, and bubbles you feel comfortable with using. I then burn some sage and incense to get the atmosphere calm and soothing. Lastly I burn some candles and turn off the lights while playing some nature sounds or mediation music in the background.
Before I enter the bathtub I pray on what I want to heal and how I want to feel after the spiritual bath. I then go inside the bathtub with my background mediation music still playing and just close my eyes and let the healing and cleansing begin. You can sit in the tub as long as you need to and by the time you are ready to come out you should let your body air dry. Usually I do these baths at night, so afterwards I feel extremely exhausted and I end up going to sleep right after. This process literally cleanses your aura and you will feel so much better after it. A quick way to cleanse and heal is by just swimming in water. It can have the same impact as a spiritual bath. I personally like the ritual part of a spiritual bath.
When it comes to tarot and water energy it is all about emotions, love, and feelings. When you look at the cups minor arcana you can almost feel the flowing emotional energy coming out from the images regardless of what deck you are using. There a few major arcana cards that have this same water energy feeling such as the high priestess, temperance, the moon, and the star. You can use the cups minor arcana and the few major arcana card that I mentioned to evaluate your current emotional state. Pick a card that speaks to you and meditate on it. Visualize yourself within the card and evaluate how you feel. After mediating and visualizing on the card that you chose write down your feelings in a journal. If you have other ways to use water energy I encourage you to follow your intuition and what you feel comfortable doing. How do you plan on using water energy?
