Water Healing Discussion
By Coyote Moon
As we all know water has been used in healing as long as anyone
can remember. It not only
helps the body heal itself, it also helps prevent sickness and
disease when used to cleanse oneself
and the area one lives in. It also makes up over half of our
body chemistry and covers over half
of the world's surface. On a more personal level, water is very
important to me. Not only do I
prefer it over most beverages, it is also a favorite source
of entertainment, and also acts as a
remedy to most sicknesses. When I say "remedy" I mean
exactly that. If I catch a fever I can
soak in a tub or take a shower and if the fever doesn't break
soon there after, it will at least
diminish. If I have an upset stomach or headache a hot shower
helps both of these and in a matter
of minutes the stomach calms down and the headache dissipates.
If I'm tired I can get into a tub
of water and by the time I am completely refreshed and ready
to take on the world again. That
said, has anyone else ever had a connection with an element
like this where all it took was being
in/around it to make you feel better, if not improve your health?
Each of the elemental forces have healing and purifying capabilities.
You may notice water more
since you seem to have an affinity for it, but it's no different
than the others as to how it affects
us. We can use any of the four elements to heal ourselves.
Coyote, I have that same affinity with water that you describe.
I've noticed that that kind of
connection with water could indicate the empathically picked
up energies being washed off... or
blockages that are literally washed clear. I also have found
similar results in the wind,...
visualizing and "feeling" the wind flowing through
my head, blowing the headache away. Or the
wind picking up energies that aren't mine from my aura, and
releasing them from my energy
field by blowing away. Knots in my stomach can be blown away
that way. Lying down on the
Earth has also done similar bits of healing... as long as I
am willing to release the headache or
upset stomach or back ache or whatever. If it doesn't release,
with any element, then I know that
it's truly mine to deal with, and it usually means: "Shut
up, lie down and for Pete's sake, give
yourself a break woman!" I've not found a way to do that
with fire yet... though I do find that fire
can help me with emotional aches in much the same way. A flame
of a candle will help some,
but a roaring fire in a pit outside... whoa yeah, Baby! That'll
clear out and burn away anything
that doesn't need to be there. And more often than not, a Phoenix
will arise shortly after.
Cinn, Granted, it is just that I don't do anything to affect
this, it does it by itself. I've used earth
before, and fire in some instances, but water does it without
me having to try to do anything at
all. (Just looking for other's thoughts and opinion. Im
not totally blind, Im just trying to pry my
other eyelid open. )
Mouse, You bring up the one Spiritual Being that has jumped
back into my life within the last
week. Coincidence? Nah, couldn't be. The Phoenix was the first
Spirit Animal I ever connected
with and it kind of laid low for the past several months. It's
back now though. LOL. probably has
something to do with me being spiritually active again. As for
the healing properties of Fire. For
me it has always being healing through change. Generally in
lifestyle, thinking, habits, etc. It
also is a good emotional cleanser for me. Water does the same
thing though so I don't use Fire
as much. I'm a pyro at heart, but sometimes the Otter just has
Coyote, I also prefer water than any other beverage. This has
been so for about 2 years. I recently
had a cold and wondered why for the first time it didn't turn
into bronchitis. After reading that
water thins the mucous and helps get it out, I now attribute
it to drinking water. So in a sense
water helped heal me. I also live a few miles from the ocean.
I moved here almost 3 years ago
and ever since my emotional state has greatly improved. Whenever
I travel out of state I actually
yearn to be back by the ocean. I can feel a sort of depression
setting in, but knowing I will return
soon helps with that. Water is definitely the strongest of the
elements for me. I also think there is
a connection between being a Scorpio (water sign) and water.
I am curious to know if you are
one of the water signs as well? My sun sign is Taurus (Earth),
but I've got way more water in my
chart, among others, my ascendant (Cancer), moon (Pisces) and
North Node (Pisces).
I posted in the spirituality and metaphysics board and got a
few replies back for some
astrological research. I have my natal chart but I'm afraid
I don't understand it at this point.
(Hence asking for the info. Though I haven't had a chance to
look into it yet.) At this point all I
know for sure is my sun sign is in Leo and my rising sign/ascendant
is in Pisces. That and 99%
of my chart is on the right side.
Here's a list of what the signs are:
Now I'm not a person who knows much about these kinds of things,
but just by logical deduction
I can guess a few things. (Even though logic sometimes has nothing
to do with it. ) Leo is a fire
sign I know. Virgo is earth. I think Scorpio is Fire. I'm not
sure about Sag or Libra but Air comes
to mind. Cancer is water I think and I think Taurus is an earth
sign. So if I'm right, then I'm
predominately Fire and Earth, with a little bit of Water and
Air thrown in just for good measure.
Gee, that sounds backwards!
Coyote, Water has been renowned for its ability to cleanse you
simply by being near it. Though
for me I find that present in the Wind/Air too. I work well
Fire cleanses through smudging and smoke too *S*. And to be
honest, if you sit with Fire it has a
calming effect just as Water does. If you sit on the Earth you
will find it grounding (a healing
quality) whether you focus on that or not, if you are thinking
"release" in any form Earth usually
jumps in and does the drawing with the natural forces at play.
So by focusing on the elemental
force you feel you want to work with just intensifies the process.
Aware or not, the elemental
forces are active in our lives. Its the awareness that
lets us consciously interact with them.
