The Spiritual Benefits of Salt

Salt has been called “The Tears of God” and with good reason, as it is one of the purest substances on earth. Negativity cannot adhere to salt – therefore it is an effective substance for cleansing oneself. There are a number of ways to utilize salt for spiritual benefits, here I will go over a few of the easy ways you can incorporate it into your day-to-day life.

The first thing to do is to bless the salt. This is done easily by saying over the salt:

 “The Blessing of the Father Almighty be upon this Creature of Salt, and let all malignity and hindrance be cast forth hence from, and let all good enter herein, for without Thee man cannot live, wherefore I bless thee and invoke thee, that thou mayest aid me.”


Now your salt is ready to be used in any of the following ways:

Spiritual Cleansing Bath

Pour about a cup of salt that you have just blessed into your your bath and get in, then say with this salt bath I cleanse myself of all negative energies. As you lay in the bath call upon Archangel Michael to cleanse you of all negative energies. Visualize the white light going through your body in from your head down and out through your feet and visualize a big bag under your feet. Let all unwanted energies go into the bag, have Archangel Michael tie the bag and throw far into the universe and ask it to be dissolved with Gods light forever.

 Many individuals like to begin by taking a spiritual salt bath even before other cleansing rituals. Sometimes we need to start fresh, clean our bodies and clear ourselves from a negative experience or unwanted energies that have attached themselves to your aura. Your intent must be strong when you ask to be cleansed. Remember Ask, Believe and Receive.

Astro Sleep Protection

It can also help to salt your mattress – remove all bed covers, liberally sprinkle sea salt onto the mattress, then re-make the bed. It is an Irish tradition to throw a handful of salt under the bed.

Cleansing Your Home With Salt

Sea salt is an excellent neutralizer! The best practice is to hold the salt in your hands and ask for positive energy to flow through your hands and into the salt. Let the salt absorb this energy and ask for your intention.

For proper cleansing, you should start at the front door and go (counter-clockwise) around the house and sprinkle salt in every corner of every room. You may also wish to sprinkle the windowsills and over the door jambs. At the front and back door, sprinkle salt over the threshold as well. If you are able to, open all of the windows before you do this and close them after you pass by them.

Then stir in at least two heaping tablespoon’s of salt in a glass of water three quarters full and invoke Archangel Michael to please help you then say your intention with your own words to remove negative energies from your space. Place a glass in a corner of every room where it can’t be reached by children or pets and leave there as long as possible.

Happy Salting!
