It’s TAX TIME! I’ve heard the expression “taking a bath at tax-time” so let’s go with that. Just what kind of bath should one take for the occasion?
I know! How about filling the tub up with dollar bills ($5’s, $10’s, $20’s, $100’s – you know, whatever you have in your wallet), then get in and roll around on them. Of course, you’ll need a “real” bath after ’cause money is pretty dirty.
After the “money bath”, take THIS bath – much cleaner and probably more fun. Plus it’s relaxing and soothing and really good smelling…because it’s a MILK & HONEY BATH! Guaranteed to make you feel RICH RICH RICH!
Light a candle, put on some gentle music and get in this bath after you’ve sent off your taxes:
- 2 cups Epsom salt
- Rose Oil – about an 1/8 of a cup – I like Almond Glow Rose Oil
- or some Lavender Essential Oil, 5 – 10 drops – add any perfumed oil that makes you happy
- In a pot heat 2 – 4 cups of milk and 1/2 cup of honey – pour in tub when warmed*
- If you have some bubbles, add them too!
- Hang out for at least 30 minutes!
*Alternative – you can also use powdered milk and add a couple of cups directly to the running bath water.
Milk baths are great for your skin because the lactic acid in milk is an alpha hydroxy acid, a natural material that dissolves the glue that holds dead skin cells together. Ewwwww! Glue and dead skin cells! Ewwwwww! Epsom salts exfoliate and honey softens the skin. Ok, honey makes up for the Ewwwww of alpha hydroxy acid.
Remember to do some moola affirmations while in the tub!
For this bath, feel appreciation and gratitude for money and for the fun and good it’s brought into your life. Think of all the cool stuff money has done for you, like:
- How it’s paid the water & gas bill so you can have hot water for your tub
- How it bought the Epsom salts, milk, honey, and bubbles for your bath
- How it purchased the computer (or iPhone or iPad, etc..) that you are currently reading this post on
The work is to let go of any resentment you might have around money and to change your attitude about it – especially if you are feeling financially stressed.
Louise Hay says:
You can never create prosperity by talking or thinking about your lack of money. This is wasted thinking and cannot bring you abundance. Dwelling on lack only creates more lack. Poverty thinking brings more poverty. Gratitude thinking brings abundance.
So drop scarcity thinking! It only brings more scarcity. And we don’t want that. Think about what you WANT, not want you don’t have. OK?
Try it. See what happens. All your doing is changing your mind – and that’s FREE. Here’s some of Louise’s affirmations to get you started:
I AM A MAGNET FOR MONEY. PROSPERITY OF EVERY KIND IS DRAWN TO ME.
MONEY COMES TO ME IN EXPECTED AND UNEXPECTED WAYS.
I ALLOW MONEY TO FLOW JOYOUSLY INTO MY LIFE.
MY GOOD COMES FROM EVERYWHERE AND EVERYONE.
