Water have always been important to me. I love the sea, the rivers, the waterfalls, and dream of having a small house near by the ocean one day. I love swimming, and learned to do so at a very young age, and loved it when we went hiking in the mountains and I could take a swim in the melted glacier water. Freezing cold, but tit didn’t bother me. Still, I will wade or swim in water so cold everyone else shudders just thinking about it. I grew up spending so much time in or near water, and would be lost if I had to go too long without seeing the ocean, a lake or a river.
As a grown up, I’ve learned to treasure the healing spirit of the water… it cleanses, not only the outside, but within.
We all feel the physical stress of life bearing down on us. I exercise as part of dealing with the stress, but the shower afterward is a huge part in the "detox" as well. We all have so many things on our plates: family, friends, work, social structures which takes a lot of effort, care and attention to keep on track. Spiritually, in our lives we encounter people, concepts and situations that we are forced to deal with in our daily lives that cause us to feel unsettled or challenged.
I stand in the shower a long time to saturate my body with water. Allowing my body to feel relaxed and open from the new energy I am being provided with through this element. The water is cleansing, healing, washing the impurities of the daily chaos away.
