WE CONTINUE OUR SERIES ON THE ELEMENTS…

WATER PART II


Introduction: A SUMMARY OF THE METAPHYSCIAL USE OF THE ELEMENTS

Waterfall Earth Fire wood
metal

The spiritual use of “elements” or energies or substances have been incorporated into cultures around the world since day one.  These are not the “elements” you learned about in chemistry class on the Periodic Table that represent the atoms which make up our world. Instead, they are forces of nature and/or physical substances that have been important in our survival and lives since ancient times.  They are so basic that cultures and religions have gods and goddesses dedicated to them.  They are used ceremonially in all major world religions today. In a word, they are ELEMENTAL. For instance, the Chinese use wood, fire, earth, metal and water  in their Five Element Table of Correspondences which connects all parts of our lives including health and healing in a holistic way.  Native Americans use the Medicine Wheel and the four directions and incorporate their version into sacred ceremony—usually air, water, earth and fire.  Other cultures have used different combinations. What is important is that even in this modern world, we connect to these basic forces and substances.  Connection with the “elements” simplifies our complicated lives and brings us back to our roots. 

WATER-The basis of life


Water is the primary element that existed even before the heavens and the earth did!

HOW COOL IS THIS ??  ≈  ≈ ≈  WATER IS SO RECEPTIVE THAT ITS STRUCTURE CAN BE CHANGED JUST BY OUR CONSCIOUSNESS OR OUR THOUGHTS!!

    • MASARU EMOTO  is a  Japanese author and scientist  known for his experiments on water crystals. He discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them.
    • For instance,  if  human speech or thoughts are directed at water droplets before they are frozen, images of the resulting water crystals will be beautiful or ugly depending upon whether the words or thoughts were positive or negative. This can be achieved through prayer, music or by attaching written words to a container of water. 
    • Emoto's water crystal experiments consist of exposing water in glasses to different words, pictures, or music, and then freezing and examining the  resulting crystals with microscopic photography. He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex and colorful snowflake patterns.  In contrast, polluted water or water exposed to negative thoughts form incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors.

    Tap Water After Prayer

    Emoto says “When you drink water with a feeling of gratitude, the water itself is physically different than when you drink the same water with clouded feelings in your soul.”

    Thank You

    Thank You

    Back of Emoto’s Book Jacket States:
    “Since humans and the earth are composed mostly of water, (Emoto’s)  message is one of personal health, global environmental renewal, and a practical plan for peace that starts with each one of us.”

    WE SECOND THE MOTION!

    ACTIVITY

    PURIFY YOUR DRINKING WATER: (Do for a whole month.)  For any water you drink, cook with or serve your family----
    Send a prayer of gratitude into the water before bringing it to your lips.  OR, place a prayer or a simple “thank you” sign on your pitcher or water or glass.  See what happens.


    MEDITATION
    Take a beautiful glass bowl of water and gaze within.  Feel the movement, the ebb, the flow, the openness, the thoroughness. Connect to the total essence.
    bowl

    “The waterways are surrounding, joining, feeding the earth.
    The cushion of life supports the first movement of consciousness.
    See the colors, grays, whites, blues, greens.
      Feel the peacefulness, the tranquility.
    Breathe in the purity.
     Float your consciousness through the molecules?
     Allow love and gratitude to pass from the water to you and back.

    Allow pure love to heal the waters of the Mother.”
