Today is World Water Day, as proclaimed by the United Nations. According to their website, “World Water Day is an international observance and an opportunity to learn more about water related issues, be inspired to tell others and take action to make a difference. World Water Day dates back to the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development where an international observance for water was recommended. The United Nations General Assembly responded by designating 22 March 1993 as the first World Water Day. It has been held annually since then.”

Water links the world. We need it to survive. A person can live only 3-4 days without it. After that, extreme dehydration can cause systemic shutdown.  Crops require water to sustain their existence. Animals depend on humans to care for their water sources, since they have no control over our indifference to their needs.

Humans take this element for granted, assuming that it will always be plentiful, pollute it with chemicals and trash as well waste it by leaving the tap running unnecessarily. Throughout the world, drought conditions put all life at risk.

What can we do, beyond reversing those attitudes and actions?

Dr. Masaru Emoto, who died on October 17, 2014 pioneered groundbreaking work called Messages From Water, subjected frozen water molecules to hateful, negative messages and positive, loving messages and witnessed twisted, distorted images vs. exquisite shapes with each group. He then played various types of music, ranging from  Bach to Beethoven to heavy metal songs. Guess what the outcome was? His contention is that since human beings contain 60-70% water, imagine what those messages and musical input are doing to us!

Since learning of his work through the iconic 2004 film What the Bleep Do We Know? which makes concepts of quantum physics understandable for lay viewers, I have done my own experiments. Not using the scientific model, but rather anecdotal. I have written words on paper and taped them to glasses and pitchers and then drinking water from them.  Looking at the words:  love, gratitude and blessings, helps me experience more of those qualities. I have prayed over bodies of water, sending them healing. I offer Reiki to the food and water I imbibe. Feeling more nourished as a result.

I was a water baby. I loved baths, taking some of them in the kitchen sink. My first visit to Niagara Falls happened when I was younger than two. Although I have no conscious memory of it, my parents told me that we went on the Maid of the Mist, which is the boat that floats scarily close to the thundering cascade. A trip the Atlantic City occurred around the same time and I entered the ocean on my father’s shoulders. A kiddie pool in our suburban South Jersey back yard and our local pool became part of my summer playground. I began taking swimming lessons around age four and by the time I was 11, I joined the swim team. That love affair lasted until my early 20’s as I became a lifeguard and coach. I still enjoy time in or near water; with beach walking being among my favorites. I imagine sending love to the waves as the energy is carried out to sea and travels around this big blue marble on which we splash about.
