I was facinated by Gladyce Nahbenayash’s talk at the Nibi Wabo (Water Ceremony) at Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe Community College’s January Water Film Fest Event. She spoke highly of Dr. Masaru Emoto, the author of revolutionary work on molecules of water affected by our thoughts, words and feelings.
The tribal college had a few of the titles in their library. I remembered seeing a You Tube video of frozen water crystals on Facebook recently. The video was blogged by Brian Nolan. It made me cry when I saw how water responds to love and gratitude.
Such beautiful crystals, how could I have been so blind as to take water for granted. I turned the tap on and drank and didn’t even think to thank the water for the gift it was giving me. I was doing water ceremonies at the lake, near ponds etc. but I didn’t bring the message home.
Gladyce brought many of us back to reconnect with water not only at the beach but in our homes. The water is teaching us that we need to pay attention to her. Fresh drinking water is at stake all over the world and greedy privatization of water as a commodity is growing. Water is feminine and it is disrespectful to treat her in this way.
I thought you would enjoy the video. I am reading The Hidden Messages in Water and The Healing Power of Water by Dr. Emoto. The books and video are based on his scientific studies.
May we all appreciate the gift of life that water gives all living species.
Be happy insectamonarca friends where ever you are.
