Today I would like to share the recipe for my Weight Loss Bath. The question occasionally arises in my practice if it is possible to lose weight through Voodoo. This is a difficult question to answer since Voodoo, like most religions and spiritual practices, was developed before dieting and weight loss were a concern for many people. In fact, today in West Africa, Haiti and many other places where traditional African and Afro-Caribbean faiths are practiced it is considered desirable, attractive and even healthy to be somewhat overweight. However in our modern world many of us struggle with weight issues and there is no question that obesity can cause serious health problems so I feel it is perfectly acceptable to give ourselves a spiritual edge when trying to lose weight. The following is a bath that I designed years ago while living in Spain for the purpose of losing weight quickly and in a healthy way. It has worked tremendously well for me and for others over the years.
Before getting into the ingredients and preparation of the bath, I’d like to talk a bit about the circumstances under which I first developed and used it as it is an interesting story. In the fall of 2001, I was 18 years old and beginning my first semester at an American university in Madrid, Spain. As part of the program, it was a requirement that I live with a Spanish family. I was placed with a single woman in her late 50’s named Charo. Needless to say, I was fascinated by all occult topics and of course practiced Voodoo even in those days. Charo found this incredibly odd to say the least and after a dramatic flip out scene after I had burned a candle that I anointed with honey and cinnamon and made a fruit offering to some saints, I decided that it was best to do any future rituals in secret. In retrospect, I realize that I should have been more sensitive to Charo’s feelings on the subject of Voodoo and spiritualism, but having been raised in those traditions I didn’t fully realize at that young age how certain people perceive such topics. As spiritual people, we should strive to be respectful and create an environment where all people can be comfortable while we try to educate on spiritual matters and teach tolerance and respect.
At the time, I was several pounds overweight which I needed to lose quickly so I decided that a discrete way I could go about giving myself a spiritual edge would be to create a bath for this purpose. So at night, I filled a big glass pitcher with water and several ingredients, but I forwent the step of boiling the bath, as I could not access the kitchen without rousing suspicion. I said a blessing over the bath and allowed it to sit and steep until morning. When Charo was at her job at the Ministry of Economics, I took the blessed herbal infusion in the bath room and after my morning shower I poured it over my head. I repeated the bath once each month for the three months that I stayed with Charo and by the time I returned to the US I had lost 50 pounds. I would like to add that I did this without following any form of diet as I had to eat what Charo prepared for me, but I did get more exercise than usual as I spent hours exploring Madrid which is a beautiful city. I have recommended this bath to others over the years and have seen it produce impressive results.
You will need:
A large pitch or container
A cinnamon stick or ground cinnamon
Dried mint or spearmint
A paper and a pen
Add all the ingredients to the pitcher. Use one teaspoon of each. Fill the pitcher almost to the top with water.
Write your goal weight on the piece of paper and rest it on top of the pitcher if possible, if not, place it next to it.
Hold your hands over the pitcher and say, “With the help of this bath, may I reach my ideal weight quickly and safely. So be it!”
Allow the bath to sit overnight and the next morning either add it to your bath water or pour it over your head in the shower. I recommend repeating the bath once a month on the same day each month while you are trying to lose weight. Also before taking this bath, it would be a good idea to take a simple salt water bath for purification to start with a clean base. Also, cinnamon can be a skin irritant, so if you have sensitive skin, it might be advisable not to attempt this bath but rather try a weight loss spell instead.
I hope you have enjoyed this post and I hope this bath helps in your weight loss efforts. I would advise you to follow whatever weight loss plan you normally would and allow this bath to give you a spiritual edge and turbocharge your weight loss.
As always I wish you peace, happiness and abundant blessings!
