Water covers 70% of the earth’s surface, comprises 60% of our body composition and we spend the first 9 months of our existence in the womb immersed in water. It is essential for life, healing, energy, renewal and refreshment of our body and soul. In its absence, we cannot exist! Water transforms our lives in many ways. It can gently hold and protect our minds, heal and soothe our bodies and at the same time has the ability to energize, excite and rejuvenate our souls. Being immersed in it brings relief and healing for exhausted minds and bodies. Water is, in fact the most life-sustaining gift on Mother Earth and is the interconnection among all living beings. It sustains us, flows between us, flows within us, and replenishes us. Water is the blood of Mother Earth and, as such, cleanses not only herself, but all living things within her.
Whilst water is a great and sacred resource, the way we source our drinking water nowadays is utmost harmful! Before we pour a glass of water from tap, the water has been through a treatment process in order to make it safe to drink. Most water filtration systems use chlorine and other chemicals to kill harmful germs. Whilst these treatments make the water safe for drinking, they also destroy the water’s vital life energy and shift its natural pH. The water tastes ‘dead’, it is not easily absorbed by our cells and is unsatisfying, leaving us wanting more. On the other side, bottled water is laced with harmful chemicals such as phthalates, which have been linked to an increased risk of cancer. Additionally, plastic bottles contain BPA which has been linked to various reproductive issues.
The way in which we prepare and drink our water is critical for its power to be released!
If we respect the water we drink, it will unleash its blissful positivity and rejuvenate us. According to Ayurveda and backed by scientific studies, keeping simple tap water in a copper vessel, preferably overnight or at least for four hours can boost our vitality, well-being and body energy in general, as the stored water acquires a certain quality from the copper vessel. This practice of storing water in copper vessels has historical roots worldwide that extends back to thousands of years!
