Pregnancy is a truly magical time for a woman and her partner. Conceiving a child is a sacred bond and the ultimate act of commitment. While some couples find it easy to get pregnant, for others the process can be extremely disheartening and overwhelming.
When you are trying to bring a child into the world, it is important to incorporate traditional medicine with spiritual techniques. Always consult with your physician to discuss the ways you can best prepare your body for pregnancy and to rule out any medical issues that may hinder your ability to get pregnant. Once you have sought the advice of your doctor, you can proceed with some spiritual methods to help enhance your probability of conceiving.
Preparing a Fertility Bath
One of the oldest and most powerful fertility enhancement techniques is a ritual bath. Ritual bathing involves using special herbs to impart essences that are conducive to achieving your desired goal - in this case, love and conception. Spiritual baths have the multi-faceted effects of relaxation of the body and stimulation of the inner-self.
A potent herbal blend used to boost fertility is 13 Aromatic herb bath. When performing a ritual bath, it is vital that you are able to fully relax and focus on the process. Be sure that you will have the time and frame of mind to fully commit to the ritual.
To begin, anoint a Fertility candle with Rose Oil. Light the candle and place it in a spot that you will be able to see it from the tub. Prepare the herb bath by steeping the herbs in boiling water. Once the liquid is cool, strain the mixture. Be sure that the stopper is closed in your tub so that the liquid does not go down the drain. Pour it over the body while standing in your bathtub. Recite the following:
"With a same purpose, we call you.
With one heart, we long for you.
Child of the Earth, air, fire and water,
In our lives, we welcome you"
Fill the tub the rest of the way with water and soak for at least 15-20 minutes. Let the flame of the candle mesmerize you and send you into a state of deep relaxation. After your bath, do not dry yourself with a towel. Allow yourself to air dry. For maximum effectiveness, repeat this ritual every day for 13 days.
Honoring the Goddess of Fertility
The Orisha Yemaya is the goddess of the ocean, women and fertility. She is a nurturing caretaker who watches over all things with a keen eye. The source of and controller of all waters, she is the quintessential mother. Yemaya gives life and offers support to all who inhabit the Earth. Her generous and protective nature endears her to those who worship her.
When issues of fertility and conception are at hand, Yemaya is the one to summon. To invoke the powers of this Orisha, prepare your altar in her honor. Start by spreading a green handkerchief over the altar. Place a Yemaya statue on the cloth. Anoint a Yemaya 7 Day Orisha Candle with Yemaya oil. Light the candle.
Cut a pomegranate in half and spread honey on both sides. Write your name and your partners name on a small piece of paper. Place the paper between the two halves of pomegranate and press them together tightly. Petition Yemaya with the following prayer:
Yemaya, Blessed Mother of the Seas, let your sacred waters wash over me.
Mother, embrace me, your humble child.
Cleanse me, nurture me, sustain me.
Yemaya, beautiful one.
You who wear the Seven Skirts of the Seven Seas,
swirl around me and create a flow of energy
that can wash away all bane.
Yemaya, Mistress of the Moon,
Shine your light onto me,
And fill me with your magic.
Help me to accomplish my goals
Yemaya, healing Ocean Mother
I ask you to fill me with your healing energy
Let your cleansing waters wash over me
Heal me with your regenerative powers.
Incorporating Talismans and Amulets into Your Fertility Rituals
Talismans and amulets have been used for thousands of years to enhance good luck and prosperity. Easily integrated into your daily life, these objects should be kept near you at all times. A mojo bag is one easy way to make use of fertility-enhancing items. Sprinkle Yemaya perfume on a green Mojo Bag. Fill the bag with a Power Fertility Amulet, some Dragon’s Blood Resin, and Tumbled Moonstone. Place the bag in your purse or pocket and carry it with you wherever you go.
Wear a Pregnancy Bracelet or Yemaya Necklace to surround yourself with positive energy while you are trying to conceive. Place a Rose of Jericho plant in a bowl of water and watch the dry plant come to life and turn into a beautiful green flower. The water is said to have mystical qualities and can be sprinkled around the house to erase negative influences, bring peace, harmony, and abundance. This symbol of fertility is believed to bring fruitfulness to those who bless themselves with the plant.
There are few things more magical than carrying a child. It is a time of abundant blessing and fortune. Focusing your energy on your ultimate goal will help you increase the odds of bringing a new love to the world.
