The sea is indeed so bountiful, it provides us with everything, from being a reservoir of water, food, wind, sea currents and anything you might think of. And for those who can see auras, the energy of the sea is very positive and healing in nature.
And that brings us to the most familiar gift from the sea right in our kitchens, sea salt. A simple process of evaporating sea water in salt pans and we get the salt. But no, we humans have managed to mess up this gift from the sea and today the cooking sea salt “refined salt” available with your grocer is devoid of energy and totally worthless for consumption. But we have been conditioned to believe that “refined”, “with added minerals”, “free flowing” and what-not is actually good. So we are stuck with our refined salt filled with anticaking agents, titanium di oxide and other unnecessary and even toxic chemicals.
I remember as a child in the 1980s, my mom would buy a kitchen salt that was slightly greyish white, crystals and would get damp in the monsoons. And it tasted not purely salty but tasty. I could suck on a crystal like it were a boiled sweet loving the taste. Then somehow refined salt made its entry in my kitchen and I forgot how sea salt really tasted like. Then a few years ago I remembered and searched my local grocers for this sea salt of my childhood. Of course I did not find it in shops, as they all sold refined salt. But then I managed to locate this “samudri” salt (samudra is sea in Sanskrit) in a shop that sold supplies for cattle nutritional supplements. At least the cattle are getting the benefits of pure sea salt.
So now lets see what all sea salt can be used for, first obviously as a table salt and in your kitchen will add the natural salt taste to your food.
Then for cleansing the aura, do this once a week on a Saturday or a Tuesday. Use a natural crystalline sea salt for this, not ‘refined free flowing salt’.
- Take a fistful of sea salt in your right hand and move it around your own head in a clockwise manner seven times. Then throw the salt in the sink turn on the water and let it dissolve down the drain.
- If you want to soak your feet in a bucket of warm water once a week, put a fistful of seasalt in this water. Ensure that the water reaches upto your calves and do not touch your feet to each other, relax for 15 mins. Visualise all your stress draining into the water. Dispose off the water carefully in the toilet without splashing it everywhere.
- If you are really low, you can wrap a fistful of sea salt in a cotton kerchief and keep it under your pillow overnight. In the morning carefully wash off the kerchief under running water. Dont drop the used salt let it dissolve completely and down the drain.
As a SOS. If you are really really low. Like if you are bone tired but have to go to office. Take a fistful of seasalt wrap it carefully in a cotton kerchief, tie a few knots so that it doesn’t spill. Keep it in your pocket throughout the day and then after you are done wash it off carefully. But remember this is a SOS not a daily thing to do.
And once a week or as you feel like, mix a fistful of salt in the water you use for cleaning your house floors and and wipe them out. This will remove all the negative energy residue that gets accumulated in the house. I am reminded of one incident, one of my clients young son had an imaginary friend who looked like “chhota bhim”/a cartoon character, it was a highly high level negative entity who had “befriended” the child. My client had a very big house and the child had a personal loft in their bedroom where he would sometimes read or play alone, his personal space. When we understood what was happening, my brother and I cleaned out the house and counselled the child against talking to strange entities even if they look like his favourite cartoon. Still for the next few days the child would say that the ‘chhota bhim’ is calling him. It was strange as we had “cleaned” the house thoroughly. So we asked the mother (she really loved the child best, maternal energy is quite powerful) to wipe out the child’s personal play space, the loft with salt water. She did it and then, the entire bedroom and the house “shook”, there was an unbearable stench and the mothers arms were in pain. But it was worth it, as the child then stopped hearing the voices, life went back to normal.
So salt is a very useful item, use it often to replenish your energies and clean out your houses and auras but always with a deep intention and a heart filled with gratitude.
