Journey to the beach with a bouquet of roses. (Six yellow roses for Aphrodite and/or seven white roses for Yemaya.)
Stand in the shallow water. Dip each rose in sea water and then massage it, gently, one at a time, over your body, stroking downwards: down your legs, down your arms, as if you are removing something. Use a light touch. Toss each rose into the sea after you've used it to cleanse yourself.
When all the roses have been given to the ocean, enter deeper water and allow significant waves to pass over you, seven for Yemaya, six for Aphrodite. If you're afraid of the deep water, or if you are not a strong swimmer, sit or recline in the shallows and let the water pass over you.
Ask these beautiful, benevolent spirits to cleanse you and replenish your aura and energy. When you are done, turn around, walk out of the water and go home.
