Heal Yourself Bath Meditation – Experiential How-To

Water bears the imprint of its spiritual surroundings–commonly known as Chi–according to Masaru Emoto, who has published books of photos showing water crystals and how they appear to imbue the essence of their surroundings, such as pollution, or a clear mountain stream. The mind-changing photos are of crystals from water that have been imbued with music, or entrained to love, gratitude, and even hate.

Since water is the central source of our beings, part of every cell and fiber, our very essence, if water bears the imprint of all surrounding it, then it is vital that those surroundings hold all that we would want. If water is the common denominator that weaves us all together as one, the ultimate connector, it is an incredibly humbling opportunity to make the threads those of love and healing.

Here is a wonderful bath meditation to help you learn how to charge the water with all that which holds healing for ourselves and the Earth:

Meditate With Water

This meditation was created with the generous help of William E. Marks, author of The Holy Order of Water, a fascinating book about the subject.


The reason I like this meditation so much is that it begins a relationship between you and water that is a type of communication, and most likely different than what you most lhave experienced before. Here is an abridged version of this helpful meditation:

1. Fill a bathtub with water of a temperature that feels right to you.

2. Before stepping into the bath ask Water to cleanse, heal, and purify the deepest pain inside of you, whether it be physical, mental, or emotional.

3. Once you are in the bath relax, and ask for a message about your pain. It helps to give a sound to the pain. Its source will usually be identified almost immediately, and more information may be provided about how to help enhance the healing. Maybe nothing occurs to you, but the healing will be present during the rest of the day or more. Let yourself be free to receive the healing.

4. After about 20 minutes, thank the Waters that reside within you and within the tub, and step out. (I like to first sing my thanks to the water by singing whatever sound feels appropriate, before getting out of the tub.)

Masaru Emoto is a quack with no scientific authority or credentials whatsoever. His "findings" are all self-published and have never appeared in any actual scientific journals. AFAIK other people who have tried to systematically and carefully replicate his "experiment" with water have seen none of his claimed effects.

While a tub of hot water and some scented oils might offer valuable help to a novice meditator, any talk of "asking the water for things" is complete bunk.

I have also hard about an emotional cleanising technique to be used under shower. Imagine that all your deseases and negative emotions are washed away by the healing shower.. Imagine that it renews every cell of your physical and mental body. It's very important that the water goes away. And you must believe into it. A small doubt will cancel the effect so remember that. If thee is no real water, imagine the energetic shower with the same effect. You can also energise the drinking water just by simple but sincere prayer, and drink it every day during e.g. 3, 9 or 14 days conciously and with gratitude feeling every drop.

I'm looking forward to trying this meditation in my next bath. I have also being putting a healing word under my water filter which is what Emoto did. Leaving it overnight is good though I thing 24-36 hours is even better if I remember correctly. Please clarify if I'm wrong thanks.:-)
