Sensually cool water flows around and past me as I step barefoot into the stream. Soft mud stirs and is carried out by flowing Water. The heat and sweat of hard work is cleansed from my skin. Feeling refreshed, I give thanks for all that Water does for me. Without her, I cannot live.
Without her nourishment, I cannot love or grow.
The element of Water is a manifestation of emotion, healing, and cleansing. Water is representative of purity, flow, intuition, and abundance.
The element of Water is a huge source of living for us. Entire civilizations were born from rivers and oceans. Sources of water made it possible for nomadic societies to settle in one place by providing a means for farming. Water is connected to the heart and emotional transformation. When we meditate and focus on our breath we can feel the rise and fall of our chests. The ebb and flow of this is how we connect to the flowing energy of Water.
As the seasons change so can the energy of Water as an element.
In spring, Water helps us nourish ourselves and our plants. It also carries nutrients to all life forms, including trees through their root systems. In summer, ponds and lakes help keep us cool and refreshed. In fall, we reflect on our subconscious intuition. In winter, Water transforms us and often freezes over as ice and snow.
I ask that Water come to my rituals to aid me in healing, emotional stability, cleansing and purification of myself, my life, and others. Intuition, Healing, Tides, and Flow are all in the realm of Water.
