The Power of Water

WaterMany of you who come to my practice know that I offer spring water that I collect from Newlands Spring. But what you may not know is the sacred reasons behind it!

 

In ancient Hermetic texts, thousands of years old, it speaks about how light entered into our sector of the Universe. And as it entered our domain, the light first encountered WATER. And it was water that conducted light and this lead to the creation of our known world.

 

So as we progress and grow in life, water is good for:

 

1. increasing your access to divine flow of energy

 

2. being more in the flow of life and good energy

 

3. helping you to shift old energies out of your system and flow new energy into your being

 

4. staying positive

 

5. supporting the vital life force energy to flow through your body

 

Quality of drinking water is also key, and the quality of the spring water I collect has (documented) excellent properties and it still has the vital force of energy from the Spring having been recently collected. This does however dissipate over time. There are a number of technologies to re-vitalise water and you may want to look at the use of orgonite as one of them (www.awesomeorgonite.com) and consider storing water in glass. It takes approximately 24 hours for water molecules to re-shape to the correct shape after being stored in plastic. The shape of the molecules affects how much the water can support you energetically!

 

We are 60%+ water after all, and the work of Dr Emoto has highlighted how responsive water is to good energy, and therefore the energy of water we drink is so important. I cannot encourage you enough to research a local source of water near you. The following website will give you information all over the world www.findaspring.com

Return to the Sacred: Quan Yin

Quan Yin 02

Return to the Sacred is a #hashtag that I have been using for some time. I desire this deeply in my soul, to see us returning to sacred living in parenting, relationships, our relationship with food, work, living a life of purpose and meaning. There are so many areas where we can return to more meaningful living and in fact all of my articles are inspired by this concept.

 

For today, I am drawn to talk about a specific being that has supported me a lot in my return to magical living and that is the Goddess Quan Yin. Known as an Eastern Goddess, she is available to serve anyone who needs her support.

 

In a world where we are so focused on outcomes and delivery of goals, we especially need the balancing energy of Mercy and Compassion. Sometimes we need to learn to flow, like water with the energy that is available. Sometimes you need to rest despite that schedule, or be kind to yourself despite that ‘mistake’, or to be kind to another because that is the energy that will best serve them.  And a major key is, often we need to forgive. Quan Yin is also the Goddess of Forgiveness, and the key to healing is always forgiveness. Sometimes we need to forgive another and let go of a perceived injustice we experienced and often we need to forgive ourselves for what we feel we did wrong. Holding onto the poison stops the flow of goodness in our life and it’s like being stuck behind a giant tree that has fallen across a river: we will struggle against the natural flow of life and experience more pain and suffering.

 

In a culture where we overuse the phrase ‘I’m sorry – and this is throughout the Southern & Central African countries I have been exposed to – we can use this phrase too lightly, expressing sympathy, which weakens the recipient and the person offering the sympathy. Sometimes true compassion is gentle and kind, but it may look like strength, where we do not allow ourselves or another to be a victim to life.

 

If you feel you are unclear about the difference between the two, or need more compassion in your life, invite Quan Yin to flow her energy into your life, so you can understand this energy and empower yourself to know the difference.

 

Quan Yin has many faces, and interestingly she is also a goddess that supports Abundance in your life, and so the understanding of true strength & true compassion are keys to be connected to the universal flow and be more in alignment with Abundance in your life!

 

This energy of Mercy and Compassion is known as Chesed in the Tree of Life, and here you learn how to be in alignment with this energy and the flow of true abundance in your life.

Building Strength

LionBuilding Strength is key to creating more joy in your life. It is a quality that builds over time: think of how metal is thrown into the fire to get stronger and stronger, the more it is tested.

 

My own practice is built on the knowledge that everyone can live a life of purpose, passion and joy, and follow their heart. But although fulfilling your dreams is a main key to finding joy, the quality of strength is what we need to develop, so we can fulfill those dreams.

 

But what is strength and what does it look like?

 

Strength has a number of faces:

 

1. Being able to keep your focus on what your passion is, and maintain that vision while other challenges try to keep you off focus. It is important to be able to split your focus to finish a crisis/urgent situation, but then return your focus back to what is important. Keep the eye on the ball, in other words.

 

2. Being able to do things you don’t enjoy for a period of time so you can do what you enjoy doing. Who enjoys going on a sugar detox for example, but sometimes you have to do that so you can have a body that is happier and can serve you for what you want to do.

 

3. Having consistency in what you say and do, following through on agreements you made, and sometimes having the strength to change those agreements when you realized you could not deliver on them. This means you need to have the strength to be accountable for your actions and words, and understand that this is a universal law and no one escapes that.

 

4. Saying no to what feels inappropriate to you even when it means you may be uncomfortable with the outcome. Sometimes saying no means you will reduce your popularity or access to affection and positive feedback. Having strength means you can see beyond short term comfort and see long term returns and be able to handle periods of discomfort.

 

5. Not allowing others’ emotions, moods & opinions to affect how you feel about yourself. This is a big one, and you will be tested over and over again until less of other people’s opinions, emotions, moods affect you and you have the strength to selfnavigate your ship through life – in fact you can choose to sail in completely different waters away from those winds.

 

6. Having strength ALSO means doing things that bring you joy, and choosing joy over pain and suffering. This seems easy, but is not so easy. There is an addiction to pain and suffering which has been part of our consciousness for some time: we choose money over passion, gossip, all kinds of addictions, depression, anxiety and a host of experiences which do not bring us joy. Choosing to seek help, take up exercise that you enjoy, choice in food that will empower your body, choosing to be with good people that appreciate your growth and strength, choosing good memories to focus on, choosing to do the things you love doing, and making the time for this, takes an amazing amount of strength.

 

These are just some of the faces of strength, and as you review these, do acknowledge yourself for what you have attained in these areas, and gently assess where you can make some course correction moving forward.

 

This energy on the Tree of Life resides in the Sephiroth Geburah, and as we start stepping into our personal power in life, we start to master the energy of Geburah. It is possible to get out of alignment with that energy, and that mis-alignment will look like being overcontrolling and domineering in our lives. This energy needs to be balanced with what is known as Chesed on the Tree of Life which is Mercy and Compassion. I will speak more about in the article following ‘Return to the Sacred: Quan Yin”
