Since the beginning, the elements of earth, water, fire, and air have been powerful forces that connect us to our planet, to our spirits, and to each other, offering guidance for our lives.
WATER is our ally in reminding us to relax and go with the flow. Most of us try so hard to control every aspect of our lives–but thatís a sure way to end up stressed and crazy! Take a few moments right now to remember the feeling of floating on your back in a swimming pool or lake. When you just lay back and allowed yourself to trust in Waterís buoyancy, you were upheld.
People have trusted in Waterís amazing soothing and cleansing powers since the dawn of human time. Give yourself permission, just for today, to give over some of your worries and concerns to the compassion of this element. If you live near a stream or river, visit it and watch the soothing flow for a little while. Take a special shower or bath, and imagine that Water is gently easing your burdens, and carrying them away.
