The Divine Mystery of Water

In the elemental realm, Water is the manifestation of Love. You are the manifestation of Love. Divine Love is a mystery in all of her ways. You and I, and many of the manifested beings on our “Blue Marble,” Earth, are made up of a large percentage of Water. It fascinates me that our physical body content of Water nearly equals the percentage of Water that makes up our Dear Earth Mother. As we are the holy, sacred and beloved manifestation of the Divine, so is the Earth and Water.

Years ago I learned that the elements of Hydrogen and Oxygen were not supposed to go together in the scientific arrangement of H2O. That in itself is a mystery. For some reason that makes me happy. Add to that the other unusual properties of Water– that it can be a liquid, solid or gas– and you have the beginning of a study that can take you into infinite spiritual and scientific realms of inquiry. Add to these elements the life-giving and transformative, healing properties of Water, and you have sufficient motivation to help the Waters of the World.

Exploring the mystical properties of Water can bring you an increase in your intuition, wellness, inspiration and creative abilities. You probably have noticed that you get your best ideas in the shower. I get my best ideas swimming, or being near any body of natural Water. Holding a glass of Water, thanking it and drinking it works well also.

When we study the work of Masaru Emoto we can begin to understand the mystery of Water. He discovered that water has memory. Water responds to our thoughts and feelings of Love in remarkable and powerful healing ways, as demonstrated in his rice experiment and in a myriad of different ways in his book The Healing Power of Water.

A crucial and potent way that our understanding of the practices of using the Divine Mystery of Water is our consciousness raises and shifts. Homeopathic remedies, flower essences, spa treatments, bathing in hot springs or any natural body of Water, have the ability to lift our consciousness and raise our frequency. Something as simple as a hot bath can change our whole outlook, which in turn helps us attract our good. Understanding and using the memory of Water contains infinite ways we can help ourselves and the world’s Water.

Patricia Cota Robles offers sacred healing Water for free on her website, EraOfPeace.org. Waters from 100 sacred wells, rivers or springs from around the world have been collected. Written instructions for the ritual and invocation are included with the package containing the vial of Water. I am always amazed and refreshed just reading about the locations of all of the sites around the globe from which the Waters have been collected. It’s easy and free to order this Water. Enjoy.

I enjoy creating Water ceremonies and rituals for myself and the Oceans. One that always makes me smile and feel my connection with the wholeness of the Waters of the Earth is simple. To a container of the purest Water you have (natural spring Water is best), add your feeling of Love. Hold the container next to your heart and fill it with gratitude for its life-giving and healing properties. Next, if you are near a creek, river, lake or ocean, pour out the Water you have blessed. If you are unable to give your holy Water to a natural body of Water, pour it on your plants. It will find its way to the ocean by its inherent property of being a part of the wholeness of the complete Water cycle. Masaru Emoto teaches us that the Hado, or Spirit of Water, is what prompted him to do his research studies, and that it took him around the World teaching about Water’s Divine Mystery. I Invite you to see what the Hado of Water can do for you. You might be very surprised. Don’t we always love a good mystery?

The Divine Mystery of Trees

mystery of trees

First graders, six- and seven-year-olds, know that trees are people, too. I had the joy of observing this fact one summer when I taught a series of Nature Camps for children. We went to a local park that had seven young coast redwood trees, and I had seven young participants. The instructions for the children were simple: choose a tree, name it, be with it for a while and ask it what would make it more comfortable. All of the children went right to work with no questions asked. Some quickly gathered rocks from the creek bed to make a circle of protection around their tree, and others went to the fountain to get their adopted tree water. I was delighted to hear the names they chose and how quickly each had made friends with their tree and why they had chosen the names.

Many indigenous people call trees the standing people. I feel this way, too.

A few summers ago I was camping in a new place and felt uneasy. My tent was near a very old oak tree. As I was silently standing by it, all of a sudden I saw a spirit-being who jumped out for just a moment and said: “Don’t worry. I will protect you.” Wow.

I had known about dryads, tree spirits, but I had never seen one. That feeling of protection, wonder and the Divine Mystery of Mother Nature stayed with me and brought me comfort.

A delightful book, How to Catch a Fairy, by Gilly Sergiev, reports: “Every tree, bush, or thicket growing has a female dryad and hamadryad spirit joined to it. Able to separate from its wooden host the dryads are the ancient guardians of trees, much communicated with and contacted by Druids for inspiration and advice.”

I hadn’t discovered this book until months after I had the experience with the Dryad near my campsite oak tree. The photo in that book is very similar to the one I had seen, only mine had jet black hair and the one in the book has light auburn hair.

Eckhart Tolle, in Stillness Speaks, reports “Through you nature becomes aware of itself. Nature has been waiting for you, as it were, for millions of years.”

You will easily communicate with trees if you allow a few moments of silence standing next to one. Even better, if there is grass or moist, soft earth underneath your new friend, stand barefoot. Five minutes is plenty to breathe in the prana and enjoy any inspiration or thoughts you receive. Or, ask the tree, “How can I make you more comfortable?” This will get the conversation going. My wish is that you will continue this practice and enjoy the peace, wisdom and joy it will give you.

The photos accompanying this post are of trees in my front yard. Each has a very special healing frequency that I take advantage of often. I asked that they send that bridge of love-light to you. They are two of the 85 varieties of Eucalyptus trees. Eucalyptus can have a bad reputation for breaking limbs, falling over and being messy, though that is only one very common variety. Check into the other 84 varieties that are beautiful with gorgeous flowers and fragrances and not as many “vices.”

Another valuable new (2017) booklet you may enjoy as much as I have is The Wisdom of Trees Oracle: Oracle Cards for Wisdom and Guidance by Jane Struthers. This booklet comes with a deck of beautifully illustrated cards. The booklet contains a section for each of 40 trees on their history, scientific facts, legends around each and message from the Deva of each. Also, Jane explains in detail how to tune into trees. Highly recommended. The quality of the cards, the art and the research included in an easy-to-understand format is that of a much more expensive deck with booklet. Enjoy. The trees are missing you.
