When I was a little girl I remember my mother used to use something called Bay Rum. It was yellow, I remember, and had a beautiful pungent smell that perfumed the house. There was a time when I had sleep paralysis and my mother came and wet me from head to toe with the Bay Rum to bring me back to myself. Up to now, as I write, I can see and smell the Bay Rum – which was my mother’s choice of spiritual perfume.
As a spiritualist, I know the many uses of spiritual perfumes.They are very useful in certain works and what the spiritualist needs to achieve, but out of them all, my own personal favorite, and it is because I have seen what it can do and what it has done for me, is Florida Water.
I will go as far as to tell everyone who reads this post to never be out of it! Just as how I instruct you all to always have a bottle of Jamaican White Rum.
As usual let me tell you a little story about the mysteries of Florida Water….
Many years ago I stepped into a church, it was my church but I had not attended for months. It was a Good Friday and I was late. As a matter of fact, I arrived when church was about to finish. It was a spiritual church so the Pastor and the attendants were “working” the pool, meaning that they were all entertaining the water spirits by the pool.
The church was loud and sweltering hot, the overwhelming feeling of spirits crowding the place. As I entered the church, the Pastor looked up and saw me. As he was just about to finish working by the pool, he called me forward. He gave me a sly look and smile and admonished me for not coming to church. He then dipped a cup into the pool water, added more things and last among them was Florida Water. As he held the cup out to me to drink, I hesitated. The human side of me worried that this was alcohol based perfume, could I drink this? But I knew this was spiritual and could not harm me, and so I accepted the cup and drank to the last drop.
Now, before this day, my enemy was experiencing terrible pains that I had silently worried about, never having told anyone at all about it. But as I entered that church, as I entered the spiritual invocation of healing spirits, the spirit within that wonderful Pastor saw my silent plight and healed me.
The thing I worried about to drink was the main ingredient of the healing. This was what was later told me to me by spirit. Now, I am not telling any of you to ever drink Florida Water, please remember that this was within a spiritual session that this was done, but the reason why this worked was that these were bodies of people who were standing by a manmade pool spiritually invoking healing energies to come forth on that Good Friday.
It was correct that I had come late, just in time to meet the help that I needed. So what was at work for me in that cup was the healing water of the pool, ingredients from his altar (perhaps consecrated olive oil?), and the heat of the Florida Water to activate it all. This now became medicinal for my complaint, and within that moment, all that disturbed the body had gone.
Why Does It Work?
There are many things that attract things from beyond our world to enter our space and either do good or bad. Beyond us here in human form, there are worlds that exist and there are energies or forces that belong to those worlds who are incredibly intelligent, more so than us. We are connected to outer realm beings and many things within our world are also connected to those beings and can bring those forces into our reality. One of such things that attract forces, other than light and sound, is fragrance.
If you have ever been to a Catholic Church where the Priest will light his incense and walk throughout the church swinging his incense burner of frank incense and myrrh (have you ever wondered why they did this? It is a type of invocation. He is calling into the church and to himself celestial beings, or what you may call Angels (or Light Beings), to come forth). In the spiritual churches, at a certain point the leadress or leader will spray perfume or spew rum from his mouth, depending on the force he has seen that has entered the space. By doing this, you “entertain” what has entered your space.
But there is a difference in what you use for spiritual purposes because not all things call forth the same kind of energies. It is always important to know what you are doing!
In spirituality, symbolism is very important to understand. So for instance, Florida Water and Jamaican White Rum are both light in color but the latter is more pungent in smell and potent in taste. Therefore, they will work differently although they both attract Light Beings, however, one may attract a stronger force of light beings than the other. It’s like calling forth Angels vs. Soldiers. Both are here to do a good deed but will deliver the job in different ways.
Hennessy, Whisky, Brandy, Kananga Water are all dark in color and potent as well. These, therefore, will attract another set of beings that the “normal” person will not be able to handle. And for those who know about Kananga Water, it should never be used after 12 midnight (I may teach more on perfumes in class).
Florida Water, on the other hand, works because it gently attracts sweet energies that save and assist humankind quickly. The persons who created this perfume did not know what it would do for the world spiritually, but alas, here it is, and it is wonderful.
When to Use Florida Water
01. Dispelling Negative Energy
Use Florida Water in any space that you are where you feel the energy has shifted from positive to negative, or if you feel a looming of malevolent energies that wish to pass through. How will you know this? You will suddenly feel irritated or confused, your animals begin behaving strangely, or there is suddenly tension in the air between you and others in your home or space (See this post on 16 Ways to Know When Bad Energy is Passing Through Your Home).
02. Aches and Pains (that are not real aches and pains)
Often times aches are not just physical, they are spiritual. So if you have ever had a headache where you have taken medication and many other methods that have not worked, the person should now consider that this ailment is spiritual. Perhaps not always a spiritual attack (although also possible), your first thought should be that you have encountered a negative energy or perhaps your an empath or sensor and have pulled another person’s pain, but something has latched onto your physical body that does not belong to you. Do not hesitate. Use Florida Water.
How to Use it In This Case:
For Aches and Abnormal Lethargy: The head is one of the most vulnerable parts of the body. We will now use the Florida Water to rid body of the energy that has attached itself. Use the Florida Water at the crown of the head (that soft spot of when a baby is born, even though you are an adult who no longer has this spot, this spot is still a portal). After this area, then use the Florida Water to rub the back of the neck and face (avoid your eyes!). Cup your hand over your nose and inhale the scent several times.
If you are at home, have someone sprinkle the Florida Water over your body as you lie underneath white bedsheets. Remember the headache is not a headache. This is a dark spiritual force that has attached itself and we must now combat it with Light, and darkness and light can not exist in the same place.
03. Cleansing Your Current Space
Often times, either in your business place or home, you can feel a shift in energy. If you’re reading this post, then I am sure you are familiar with energy and energy shifts. Everything is energy and it can only transfer, never die. If a person enters your space with negative energy, they can (unintentionally, of course) leave an essence of this behind. If you can imagine several tiny bouncing dark little balls bouncing around, these are the little malevolent forces left behind. When they are not removed, they bring with them quarrels and fights, aches and pains, negative thoughts or sadness, breakups and even sickness. Pay attention to how you feel.
In these cases, use Florida Water to “flash” your house. How do you “flash”? Hold your index finger over the mouth of the bottle, leaving a little space open, and go through every room and spray the liquid about. Pray as you do so, either aloud or in your mind, that any negative that is around be dispelled immediately, and all positive come forth.
Do this in every room and even onto yourself. You can also do this in your car (remember, energy transfers!), and if you have children, you may “flash” them also. Let them get used to this so that when they grow up, they will learn by example.
04. Moving Into a New Space
Before you move into any space, use Florida Water. Use it to flash the house and wipe areas. Pour it into a bucket of water and use it to mop your home. Just Florida Water and water, nothing else. It can be joined with the powerful Jamaican White Rum, but it is not really necessary. You can add it to a spray bottle (no water) and spray each rooms, including the yard outside, most especially the basements where dark entities like to hide. These actions will dispel and tell Mr. and Mrs. Non-Physical family to leave, you are moving in now. As with all things, do this with prayer. Do not rely only on Sage, Florida Water is a more forceful (and reliable) defender.
01: Use when setting up your altar space. Locate your altar space and add the Florida Water to the area, and then atop your table and tablecloth (before adding anything to the table). This will consecrate the space.
02: Use before lighting a candle for ancestors or altar space. When buying a candle for spiritual use, the idea that this candle has been handled by many is often overlooked. Florida Water is used in purification, so use it to clean the candle first.
03: Use to cleanse yourself after leaving places such as funerals or hospitals, or even to visit someone on their sickbed. Use the Florida Water as you leave and before you get home so that you do not return to your own space with that energy, and so that the energy does not attach itself to you!
05. Florida Water Bath to Attract Prosperity (Christmas Bonus)
As this is Christmas season, and everyone is looking for some money to assist them for the holidays, this is my gift to you. Put Florida Water into a clear crystal bowl of water, just a few drops, about 5-9 drops. Add white flowers (any flowers – pompoms, chrysanthemums, or even roses). Light a white candle beside this and pray for progress and success and financial increase. Let this concoction sit for at least 3 days. Upon the third morning, use this water to wash yourself from head to toe with prayer for financial success.
This is a wonderful bath for the coming year and to open up the way for you.
