The realm of water is that of the emotions, the collective unconscious, receptivity, and intuition.
It is abundant and divine flow, and a place where secrets and other worlds lay hidden.
To the ancient Norse, water was a terrifying force that had to be met, appeased, challenged. To the Ancient Atlanteans, a tomb. It brings life but it can also take it away. It is a great cleanser and purifier, washing the world anew and baptizing new life and faith.
Water teaches us that there is an ebb and flow to all cycles in life, and to honor those cycles in our own lives. It is closely linked with our moon, as the moon moves the tides, and symbolically mirrors the mystical nature of water.
In my own life and work, I’ve found water to be a great emotional healer, nurturer, and cleanser, both it in its elemental form but also from the crystals that resonate with its energy. Anyone who’s ever gone to the beach, ocean, or river and found solace knows what I mean: there’s something very, very healing about water.
Water is something that those of us in “developed” countries often take for granted. The next time you wash your hands, bathe, or shower, consider taking a moment to greet the spirit of water, thank it, receive its healing and cleansing Grace.
