I’m a water sign and as is the case with many Cancerians, Scorpios & Pisceans, I have a strong bond with the element of Water- its connection to the Divine Feminine, its attributes of purification, love & healing; and of course its reign over our emotions.
Some of you may already know about Dr. Masaru Emoto’s theory on water and the power of words- and if you don’t I recommend you check out his experiments which are absolutely fascinating.
In one of his experiments, he took containers of water and taped different words to them- some words were positive such as love and happiness, while other words were negative like hate and anger. Afterwards, he froze the water and took pictures of their crystalized shapes. The water with words of positivity formed beautiful, symmetrical snowflake-like shapes and the water with negative words became chaotic, fragmented, misshaped crystalline forms.
Like many other scientific spiritualists, his experiments have plenty of nay-sayers, however witches don’t need much convincing as we already understand the magick of water and the power in the vibrations of our words.
Since over half of our body is water and we’ve seen how words and thoughts can affect the molecular structure of water, it’s safe to say we all should be more mindful of our words to each other and ourselves.
Furthermore, to sustain a physically healthy body we should drink an abundance of water on a daily basis.
But instead of mindlessly grabbing a bottle of water, try enchanting your water with words of positivity. You could use one word or try full affirmations, prayers, mantras, etc.
All you need are pieces of paper, a pen, scissors, tape and a glass container.
I chose this glass carafe and filled it with some bright lemon slices, which we know offers medicinal and magickal properties of purification and crisp cucumbers for its healing benefits.
After filling the carafe with water, I wrote down my positive words and taped them to the glass using some decorative washi tape.
At this point a prayer can be said over the water to solidify your intentions and send your words of love out to the Universe.
“By holding the intention of peace towards water- by thinking, speaking and acting with the intention of peace towards water- water can and will bring peace to our bodies and to the world.”
