I’ve been focusing on my relationship with the 5 elements, moving into my capacity to offer healing as the Earth heals me. A mutually supportive relationship. It’s been really nourishing to approach each element as a relationship that I have something to bring to––and what I can bring is reverence.
My relationship with Water is going beautifully, so I’ve got some ideas for you… for mutual healing.
Water = flowing, life-giving, cleansing, inclusive, nourishing. Us = made of about 70% water.
When we connect more deeply with the element of Water, the key characteristics of water get stronger within us. It’s like hanging out with friends who influence us in a positive way. A mutually supportive relationship. We sync up. Our “inner” water content gets impressed upon by the qualities of Water Itself. We ourselves become more flowing, life-giving, cleansing, inclusive, nourishing.15 WATER-HONOURING WAYS TO CREATE MORE ENERGY FLOW IN OUR LIVES
1. WATER GRATITUDE LABELS
Create water gratitude labels for your taps or water containers. I got this idea from my friend, Rochelle Schieck. I have “gratitude labels” on every tap in my house. I make water labels for friends. The tap runs, we say thank you.
WATER IS LIFE… BLESS THIS WATER… THANK YOU… WATER IS LOVE…
2. THE WATER BLESSING PRACTICE
The Water Blessing Practice helps to calm our inner world so we can have more ease in our interconnectedness to… LIFE and others. The astral and “emotional” realm is symbolized by Water. We cleanse our “inner waters” so we can navigate with more clarity. Less emotionality, more grace. For this practice, you’ll need a glass vessel (ideally blue glass) and a space where you can see it everyday. You can work with this practice for a period of 7 days or longer.
3. TRY THE APPLE EXPERIMENT
See what happens when you speak positively and negatively to apples––how its water molecules respond. This is especially cool to do with kids!
4. LEARN ABOUT THE INDIGENOUS SAFE WATER CRISIS
“Don’t drink!” “Boil water alert!” Imagine living in a community surrounded by water… yet not having clean drinking water. – @seeingred6nations
On the Indigenous shores of Canada, the planet’s largest bodies of freshwater, over 50 Indigenous reservations have been under contaminated water advisories for years. Black “water” out of the taps. Not unlike the crisis in Flint, Michigan, it’s a disaster willfully ignored by political leaders.
5. SPEAK FOR WATER
Sign this petition lobbying Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to do the right thing.
6. WATCH THE WATER WALKER
This short documentary (14 minutes), follows 15-year old Anishinaabe Global Water Activist Autumn Peltier as she speaks truth at the United Nations with the hope of preserving the future of Indigenous communities for generations to come.
7. FUNDRAISE ON YOUR BIRTHDAY OR THROUGH YOUR WORK WITH CHARITY WATER
663 million people live without clean water. The majority live in isolated areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water. This keeps kids out of school and parents away from money-earning time. In 2019, Team D raised $10,000 USD for charity: water to sponsor a pipe system that brings clean water to a community in Nepal. Access to clean water = education, income and health—especially for women and kids.
charity: water is a nonprofit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. With a radically transparent model that sends 100% of public donations straight to the field, charity: water funds sustainable water projects in areas of greatest need and works with local partners to implement them. And the organization shares every project, using innovative technology and powerful storytelling to help connect donors with their impact.
8. TRY WATER STRUCTURING WITH FREQUENCY THERAPY
I’ve been researching water structuring and decided to invest in a SomaVedic… “a device that can reliably mitigate unwanted influences of: EMF radiation (4G/5G, WiFi, phones), geopathic stress, water crosses. Oxidative stress / Free radicals.” I am most interested in its water structuring capacity and I got the Vedic model for that purpose. This is an investment. I keep this on the top of my fridge, which happens to be next to my Berkey Water filter. Perfect positioning.
I connected with the SomaVedic folks and they’re offering Danielle readers 10% off. Use the CODE Danielle10.
