My Love of Water

I recently read something I always knew to be true:  Water has healing properties.

In the book I’m reading, it talks about ways the environments are affecting our mind, body, and spirit.  A lot of it talks about energy and how different things reflect different energies and therefore can produce healing properties, boost your immune system, or simply boost your mood.

Yesterday, I came across a paragraph that talked about the healing properties of water. Swimming in water, walking by it, or listening to it can increase so many positive things throughout your body. Obviously, I am no expert in the matter of energy boosters, but I’ve always believed that water is healing.

A lot of this began when I was younger.  The salt water of the ocean used to clear out my sinuses when I had allergies or a small head cold.  From there it just flourished.  

Since I’ve been living closer to the ocean, I’ve driven many times to the beach just to smell the salt air or take a dip to feel it cleanse me. The way the waves wash over you creates this idea of washing away the things that no longer serve you. Yet as the waves retreat back into the ocean they give you clarity and hope that they’ll come back again, as will you.

To some, this may sound a little silly, and that’s fine. Not everyone believes in Earth-Body connections and the energy you can receive just from stepping outside, but I do.

So, I guess I just wanted to say, I can’t believe that I get to live so close to something that heals me so well and so quickly.  I live on a boat for goodness sake!  Well, most of the time, but even when we’re not there, we’re near water.

Right now we’re at the river. A beautiful body of water that makes this place so beautiful and calm.

I remember talking to Steve a while ago about where we may want to live one day. I looked at him and very seriously said, “I don’t care where we are, but we have to be near a body of water.” I’ve always felt that way, and luckily, Steve agreed.

So, as I sit on the barstool at the counter writing this blog, in a cozy little cabin in the middle of January, I’m dreaming of diving off of the boat into the Bay and letting the water wash over me on a warm summer day.

Each day is incredible and each day I love, I’m just a tiny bit more excited for the warmer days to come.

Cheers, friends!
