Here is my most recent article I wrote for the St. Croix Current, a local newspaper in Prescott, WI.
As I sit here to write this article, I am looking out at the beautiful St. Croix River watching the water flow, soft waves ripple, and the beautiful sunset over the horizon. I come down to the river quite often. hile I am here, I usually find myself reflecting on my life or when I need some extra healing and love. So let me ask, are you one of those people that are so use to driving by it every day you hardly even notice? Or do you take time to stop frequently and use it for adding value to your life?
I recently came across the following quote (on wwww.thewhitegoddess.co.uk) and thought that it would tie in nicely to what I wanted to share with all of you: The true essence and meaning of the element of water and how we can use the confluence of the Mississippi and St. Croix Rivers to our advantage.
"Water is a cleansing, healing, psychic and loving element. It is the feeling of friendship and love that pours over us when we are with our family, friends, and loved ones. When we swim it is the water that supports us, when we are thirsty, it is the water that quenches our thirst. Water is something that we need to survive. As well as being vital for life, within the energy of this element is contained the essence of love. Love is the underlying reason for all magic. Water is love."
Since I started my spiritual based lifestyle a few years back, I have found myself coming down to the water quite often. I come down here to be inspired, like right now as I sit here writing this article. I come down here to be in the flow, just like the water flows so easily and effortlessly, I too allow myself to do the same. Flow with all my thoughts, feelings, thoughts and emotions. I come down here to reflect. Have you ever looked in the water and saw your reflection? Try it out sometime. The water will tell you a lot about yourself that you need to know. I encourage you to come down here sometime and take advantage of all that this water has to offer. Use it to deepen your spiritual gifts, to feel the love and nourishment it offers, and to feel the healing and cleansing powers.
When I am working with clients, I take them on a guided meditation journey where they envision the water healing and cleansing them. Feeling the water "wash" over them to bring love and light into their lives. I encourage you to give healing a try. Whether its during a healing session with me or if you choose to just come down by the water. Allow yourself to flow through emotions to heal your mind, body and spirit.
A few other ways to connect with water:
· Drink plenty of water as it flushes away toxins
· If you feel negative energy build up during the day cleanse that energy by washing your hands (warm water to cleanse away the energy and cold water to reenergize the energy)
· Take a nice relaxing shower or bath and imagine the water washing away anything that does not serve you, and just be in the presence of a body of water.
· Meditate and just listen to the flow and current of the water
I will be holding a group meditation very soon. And I thought what better place to do it than down by the water.
