I have always loved all of the elements and elementals. I have studied a few cultures and their ways of working with the elements. Each has helped me understand their importance for our joy, health and Spiritual Growth.
I love my Irish heritage and have learned from one Celtic tradition that there are three elements: the Sky above, the Earth below our feet and the Oceans.
Another is our Western traditions of Earth, Air, Fire and Water, with each having elementals and Devas as part of their Beingness.
Traditional Chinese Medicine teaches us of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water, each having a season and purpose for our health.
All include Water.
I love Water’s healing and mystical qualities.
Masaru Emoto’s work demonstrates the magical and healing powers of Water in his many books and photographs. The photos of the Water Crystals, here, are from his Oracle Cards.
Also, his book The Healing Power of Water is an Anthology, and contains many authors in three parts: the Scientific Perspectives, Health and Healing Perspectives, and Spiritual and Mythological Perspectives. I have highlighted the article by Starhawk below.
“Waters of the World” by Starhawk:
One morning I was meditating beside a beautiful lake in Vermont, listening for whatever messages the water might have for me. ‘All water is connected,’ the lake said. ‘All water is in constant communication with all other water. The waters of the world are one—one consciousness, holding the world in liquid embrace. What you do to any part of the waters affects them all.‘
I hold my glass of water in gratitude and drink it. I know I have made a healing tonic.
Another simple practice I do, and receive an instant uplift from, is blessing a glass of water and pouring it in a river, creek, pond or in my bath water. I visualize it going around the world with its message of love.
Water is LOVE, in the elemental kingdoms and here in our everyday reality.
Water enlivens and heals. It rejuvenates and gives us energy. It quenches our thirst and Loves our body. It refreshes and resets us.
To learn more, Masaru Emoto’s, The Healing Power of Water, with perspectives from 21 authors from several disciplines, will inspire you to treat this beautiful element with respect, love and care. It is still available from Amazon.com.
The Ondines from the deep ocean, the sprites of the ocean shoreline and the Ocean itself, may give you messages. Your own mystical and intuitive abilities will be enhanced by listening to Water.
