A number of months ago I blogged about being a Water Witch. People wrote me back saying how much they enjoyed it and that they want more information. So I decided that today is the day that I work on a blog about that.
One of the comments that came in was a pondering about how it must be difficult to be a Water Witch in the prairies. The theory on that is that there is not much water, when compared to living ocean side. To this I must say that, although the phrase “bald prairies” did become a thing…that has more to do with the lack of mountains. But we do have hills and valleys and we definitely have water systems (as can be seen when you are flying over the prairies in a plane)…and those water systems are connected to every other water system, because water does not just happen out of nowhere. We don’t have to be a Sea Witch to be a Water Witch.
Now that this has been put to rest, so to speak, I would like to move on and talk about various forms of Water Witchery that I, personally, use, both in my private life and in my professional life as a Shaman. To begin with, I drink a lot of water. This keeps me hydrated on a physical level, but it also keeps the energy flowing through my chakra and meridian systems. We are made up, predominantly, of water. Allowing ourselves to become parched does our entire systems, physical and energetic, a great disservice. The water that I drink is filtered and mineralized, yes. But it is also programmed with intention. For example, if you hold a glass of water and focus on a concept, such as “healing,” then the molecules of that water will adopt that intent and change their shape to express that intent. Then, as you drink that water, it serves to not just hydrate you but to also bring healing energy into your physical body via the physical body’s water system. If you want to learn more about that, you can research this by reading some of the scientific works that were done by Masaru Emoto and you can also get his book, The True Power of Water: Healing And Discovering Ourselves. It is a fascinating read!
So the water that I drink is programmed with intention. This is why I am very particular about if someone wants to sip from my glass. They may not mesh with the intention I set, so the answer will be “no” as I pour them their own glass of water. Besides, sipping from someone else’s glass only serves to pass germs and bacteria and viruses from one to the other and back. This is another reason that I am particular about who I kiss on the lips, because saliva is a form of water. This also aligns with my germ phobia, by the way. But it is not just water that I will set intention into. I will do that with a cup of tea, a cup of coffee, and a bowl of soup. I will also do it with alcoholic beverages because, let’s face it, there is liquid involved in the creation of those as well.
When I water my houseplants I will set intention of good health and nourishment into the water with which I am watering them. My house plants do extremely well with that. If I am using a garden hose to water outdoor plants, I will set intention as the water moves through and out the hose.
I will use Sacred Water at my altar to cleanse and purify my third eye as well as the palms of my hands. Often I will moisten the centres of my palms and then sit, palms up, as I connect with Spirit through my meditations and prayers. I will also incorporate water flow in my body movements as I practice my Qi Gong, Gung Fu and Tai Chi. This allows the energy to flow through me much better.
The element of water is also in snow and ice, of course, so sometimes I will utilize those aspects in the healing spells that I do. For example, if I am wanting to send healing energy to a particular family member, I will take an ice cube in my hand and program it with healing to be sent to that family member. I then place it in a small bowl and allow it to melt, warming any cold and blocked up areas of their energy field as it does. Then, as it evaporates, the blockages that were once almost stone-like in their energy field will dissipate. As it does, it gets transformed into positive energies and becomes part of the very air we all breathe. So the healing is able to ripple outward from that person to all people…whomever needs it. There is always a ripple effect, and this is just one way of honoring that.
If I am having a personal struggle with something, I might focus on that thing and then envision what it would be like to have mastered that struggle, all while holding some water in a bowl. Then I place the bowl somewhere safe where it will allow the water to evaporate and, as it does, the solutions to the struggle will present themselves to me.
This can also be used in an opposite manner. If, for example, I am having a struggle with someone’s negative influences upon me, I can focus on those influences and envision them becoming a part of the vessel of water I am holding. When it feels like I have completed that transfer of energy, I pour that water into an ice cube tray and freeze it, thus freezing the negative influences. Once frozen, I can either take those ice cubes out into a park or some place of nature and throw them as far away from me as they can get, wishing them well on their way to becoming more positive energy. As the ice melts, that negative influence then transforms into something nurturing for the Great Mother. This does not mean that I necessarily will have nothing more to do with the person that those negative influences were coming from. But what it means is that the relationship is free to shift and those influences no longer affect me.
Water is Sacred. Truthfully, it is a scientific fact that life on our planet could not exist without it. This is why it is so important to not be polluting it. This is not just a “First Nations issue” (as many of the First Nations are having to resist corporations from polluting their water) and water should NEVER be a capitalistic thing, such as certain companies wanting to “own” our water for their greedy purposes.
Because water is Sacred, I put a lot of personal time and energy into rippling healing to all the water systems around the world. Every little bit counts. And you do not have to be standing right in the water that you are healing in order for the healing to happen. You can do that from the other side of the planet altogether because the water will feel the intent and shift its molecules.
I also like to spend time submerged in water now and then. This allows me to hear things that are normally drowned out by all the noise of the world around me. So laying back in the tub, allowing my ears to go underwater, will block out most of those sounds and then, because I can hear my own heart beat and my own breath, I can whisper intent and have that flow throughout and around me. And I can hear the Spirit of the Water speak to me while I am down there. I can dip my hand into the water at the shore of a lake and be given information about everything in and around that lake. It is a fabulous experience and I highly recommend trying that. Also, storm clouds communicate. I love the sound of rain falling, but also it often communicates things. And if we are in a drought, we can actually call on the rain clouds to bless our land with water through rain.
Even just beginning with a simple exercise of standing for a moment in the shower and asking the water to wash away tension and stress can be quite beneficial. Close your eyes. Feel it flow off of you and down the drain, to be recycled into positive energy along the way. I also enjoy having 432 HZ music with water sounds going in the background as I live and as I work. I find it very relaxing.
These are just a few of the things one can do with Water Witchery. I hope that some of the suggestions will be of assistance to you, my faithful reader.
