Water is the giver of life and is essential to existence on this planet. Spiritual disciplines across cultures have long revered water and utilized it for purification and blessing. Through water, we are all intimately connected to the wholeness of this life. The spiritual qualities of water may be harnessed in our own lives through ritual. From giving thanks as we drink to more elaborate ceremonies of purification, water offers us a gateway to the gift of life, transformation, and connection to the divine.
If you are interested in attending a Shamanic Reiki Sound Journey where we work with the Water Element here are a few that I will be offering in 2021 during the
Water Element Season.
A Ceremony for drinking water
While holding a glass of water, take a moment to close your eyes and feel gratitude for the water of this earth. Feel into the oceans, rivers, rains, and streams, and sense genuine appreciation for the life that this element brings. As you drink, allow yourself to be nourished by this gratitude.
Infuse With a Written Prayer
Before going to sleep, take some time to write a prayer or affirmation that is particularly meaningful to you on a piece of paper. Take the paper and wrap it around your water bottle or glass. As you do so, imagine the water pulling in the vibration of your words and intentions. In the morning, take a moment to reconnect to your prayer. As you drink this water throughout the day imagine the vibration of your prayer/affirmation permeating every cell in your body.
