The Philosophy of Healing through Water
We are water, and water is life. Our
emotions are the waters that flow through us, cleansing us and awakening
newness, or getting stuck and stagnating. When our emotions get stuck, they get
stored in the water crystals and muscle tissues of our bodies, thus creating
All pain is stagnation.
the waters of nature--rain, rivers, tides-our bodies own rhythms dance in the
waters of who we are, or reek and suffer in the cesspools we create.
Negativity, resentment, blame all are natural emotions for us to feel, yet they
are difficult and many of us have a hard time accepting them, therefore not
acknowledging and honoring them as needed so they can complete their course and
move on, much like a storm. Sometimes, the storm lingers, as intense emotions do,
but it always passes.
emotions are unfelt, unacknowledged, stuffed under, they fester. They become
attachments. Water, emotions, have to move to do their job. Stuck emotions
create pain--first temporary, then deeper, more chronic, the longer they are
stuffed and ignored. Water, like emotions, is essential for the renewal of
life. Healing the body requires healing the emotions, and therefore we heal the
world. Water flows, water pushes past all things stuck. Water opens all locks,
smooths all rocks, softens all knots.
The art of healing this water, our
own springs and sources of connection to our soul, is medicine water.
