Self Care Spell: Heal The Past

Please note that posts on this site may contain affiliate links

When memories of the past bring you grief or remind you of past trauma, this self care spell can help you to ease your mind.

If the memory is too new or painful, it may be best to work with a therapist or discuss it with a trusted friend before doing this spell.

Resurfacing trauma before you’re ready can do more harm than good, so really think about how ready you are.

Healing Self Care Spell


  • A bath
  • 5 drops cypress essential oil
  • 5 drops chamomile essential oil
  • 10 drops olive oil
  • White candles
  • A white washcloth


Drop the oils into running bath water and light your candles in a safe area. Turn off the light, using the candle light only.

Get in the bath, and relax and meditate for a moment.

Think of the memory you are trying to heal or process.

Imagine the painful memory as if it were a cut on your own soul, then take the wash cloth.

Wipe the water against where your soul’s wound is, imagining it being cleaned and healed with each splash of the water against your skin.

Stay in the bath tub.

Envision your future without the pain and hurt of that painful moment.

See yourself smiling, happier than ever. You can achieve that.

Do this spell up to once a week.

Over cleaning an emotional wound will just lead to thinking about it too often and dwelling in the past.

What To Do After This Self Care Ritual

After this spell, I recommend doing a gratitude meditation.

This will help you to remember all the good things you have in your life.

You should do other self care rituals as well, such as a spa day or listening to calming music.

Even binge watching a show on Netflix can be helpful!

Constantly thinking about painful memories isn’t healthy, and it is good and healthy to take your mind off of the negative sometimes.

So don’t feel bad about thinking about other things after this ritual. Healing emotional wounds requires hard work and time.

The healing won’t happen instantly.

  2. Working With Hekate During The Full Moon

    During the full moon, we call upon Hekate to assist us in clearing our past, releasing our fears, and opening ourselves to new possibilities. We ask her to help us gain clarity in our lives, to help us transform our inner worlds, and to allow us to move forward with courage and confidence.

    It is said that Hekate helps us to overcome obstacles and challenges that stand in our way, and to achieve our goals. In addition to being a benevolent Goddess, she is also a fierce warrior. When we summon her, we invite her to help us take charge of our lives, to lead us into battle, and to fight for justice.

    I am an eclectic witch - I've been practicing since 1974. As a student of the occult, working with astrology, tarot cards, runes, and numerology, I found that this was a very comprehensive and well written text on working with Hekate during the full moon. Highly recommended. - Gail Sager

    Great read - a must have for anyone interested in working with the Goddess during the full moon! Highly recommended! - Luis Meyer
