The idea for this project originated from communication with a power animal, a Hawaiian Spinner Dolphin, during a shamanic journey conducted in a class led by Larry Kessler. We were instructed to ask our power animals what it was we were to do together. The dolphin said that we would be healing the ocean. It became clear that the dolphin did not mean just the bay less than a mile away. The dolphin intended that we heal the entire Pacific Ocean.
I told the owner of The Path where I was taking the class that I wanted to facilitate a group to heal the ocean. She said, “But you can’t heal just the ocean without healing the entire planet.” She went on further to say that healing the water would heal the planet.
It made sense to me to expand the scope to the entire planet since the ocean is part of the planet. The planet as a whole is an entity with its own soul. To heal just an ocean would be like healing just the arm or leg of a person. The funny thing was that every time I tried to type “Healing the Ocean” as I was beginning this project, I ended up typing “Healing the Planet.” And so this project has become the healing of the entire planet.
When considering the idea of healing water, the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto is preeminent. Dr. Emoto is famous for his experiments with water crystals. He discovered that the nature of water could be changed by words, music, and prayers. He came to believe that we could indeed heal the water and with it, our planet and ourselves. He said of this:
I firmly believe that it’s our duty as human beings to contribute to the healing of the earth and its waters. For many of us this has been a need for a long time. Now we know that together we can make big things happen, as the law of the hundredth monkey teaches us.
One of the most important messages that we receive from the water crystals is that each of our thoughts, words, and actions represents information that we send out. Our consciousness has a real influence on water, which becomes particularly powerful when many of us become one and aim for the same goal. In this lies the power of joint prayer. Let’s use this energy to give love and gratitude to water.
Let’s declare July 25 of each year a “World Day of Love and Thanks to Water.” We’ll start this event with a ceremony to send out our feelings to the life-giving liquid and in this way gradually raise our consciousness. Take part in it on your own or with others, and direct your thoughts and prayers to water. Every single person counts; each loving word matters. All drops that are treated with love and respect carry those vibrations out into the world.
To increase the power of the message, I suggest sending out the vibrations three times during the day, say at 7 A.M., 1 P.M., and 7 P.M. (your local time). Please direct love and thanks to water at one or all of these times and pass this information on to all those who are interested.
How you arrange the ceremony is completely up to you. You can say prayers from your own religion, or you can do a visualization. I, for instance, imagine silver/golden light filling water and the earth and flowing out of the heart of each and every person.
In addition to this World Day of Love and Thanks to Water, let’s send out our affection and gratitude at the same times on the 25th of each month. By doing so, you’re also benefitting yourself. You’re lifting your own vibration. And by thanking the water that, for example, runs over your hands while you’re washing up, you’re appreciating the same substance in your body, in your cells. In that way you’re contributing actively to your own well-being.
