Hi everybody, and a special welcome to all new subscribers :-)

It has been an interesting week, some virus is cruising around and left me unable to eat for the past 7 days just taking in fluids and lots and lots of water.

Which really brought it to my attention just what a lifegiving liquid this is, Water ...

I have been fascinated with Masuro Emotos work on Water, he photographs water at the turn of freezing . His findings show that Water is a living conscious being, responding to emotional reactions towards it

~ if you say I " I hate you " to the water- at the point of freezing it cannot form into a crystalline snowflake pattern, but rather ends up distorted.

~ if however you say " I
Love you", "Thank you" or "I am grateful" to the water beautiful snowflake crystal patterns are created like pieces of divine art.

But think about this - Humans are made up of nearly 90% Water !!!!

~ If you say or even just think you hate me ~ my waters react
~ If you say you love me ~ my waters react

Something to ponder

. ..and do take a look at Masuro Emotos Work at his website

~ So Joyful Water is the theme of this ezine :-)

Poem about Water

“Lie back, daughter, let your head be tipped back
in the cup of my hand.
Gently, I will hold you.
Spread your arms wide, lie out on the stream and look high at the gulls.

A dead-man’s float is face down.
You will dive and swim soon enough where this tidewater ebbs to the sea.

Daughter, believe me, when you tire on the long thrash to your island,
lie up, and survive.

As you float now, where I held you and let go,
remember when fear cramps your heart what I told you:
lie gently and wide to the light-year stars,
lie back, and the sea will hold you.”

Phillip Booth, Words of Mouth

Creativity Project 1

~ Water to me symbolizes journeying, movement and constant change
~ I have been drawn to the fast moving sacred rivers of this world and had the priviledge to sit by the Nile, to meditate by the Ganges and to feel connection beyond measure

What does the River of your Llife look like?

~ take a large sheet of art paper
~ take a pencil
~ find a quiet space within yourself, meditate or pray for 5 minutes to be firmly centered in your heart space
~ set the intention to let your heart draw

~ then take your pencil for a walk over the paper - yes simple take your pencil for a walk but close your eyes as you are doing it.
~ Take your time and feel where the hand is being led to by the heart.. just follow the movement
~If you are working on your own - set a timer for approx 5 minutes so you can go undistrubed into a deep space
~ When your time is up -- remember to ground , drink some water and then l take a look at the line left by the walking pencil

~ Do you recognise any patterns or shapes?
~ What did this exercise make you feel like?
~ Is there a specific area you are drawn too?

~ Let yourself be immersed in the drawing and take some time with paint and pens to color in areas you like, to flesh out shapes and forms without being fixed on any particular outcome - simply stay with the connection and let it expand into your consciousness..


You may post your artwork at the yahoogroup if you like :)


Creativity Project 2

Tell your Water how much you Love it

~ take a water bottle or water container you use
~ make an artful label that declares your love and gratitude for the "Water of Life "
~ display it proudly for your water to "see" , but the water container on top, or embellish the bottle, or hang it from the neck of a bottle, your tap or your favourite mug

~ Everytime you take a sip of water - look at your artful label and feel the water your drink mingling joyfully with your own bodily waters and being renewed :-)

Have a Joy-Filled Day .... Milliande :-)
