Yesterday, March 22nd, was World Water Day, and there were meditation and healing events throughout the world.
Mandy Brinkley (a yoga teacher from England) and I, decided to Unify and hold an event on our little island paradise.
We really weren’t sure what to expect, who would come, or what the weather would be like when we initially decided to take part in this ‘synchronized water ceremony’. But both of us are really striving to help cultivate change, so we decided that even if it was just the two of us, we would meet, send healing, and honor and love the water that sustains us.
We held the event at the beautiful Praia Formosa on the island of Santa Maria, in the Azores. It ended up being the warmest day of the year. And we had a lovely group of women come.
Mandy and I took turns leading a gentle fluid yoga practice. We chanted, called upon Green Tara to help us become more compassionate. We held hands and created a healing circle. We got our feet wet. At 3pm, guided by the sounds of the ocean, our breath, and our collective energy, we all tuned inward for a 20 minute healing meditation.
We need to love, respect, and heal the Earth. When I think of what greed has done to our world, I cry. My tears taste like the ocean. My body is 80 percent water. What will happen if there is no clean water?
“Filthy Water Cannot Be Washed”-West African Proverb
We have to change the way we live. We have to change the way we think. It has to be now! And the Shift is happening. One by one, we are changing. And when one person begins to change, it has a rippling effect on everything. Slowly, we are awakening, and reconnecting with a long forgotten primal knowledge that all things connect. We are all one. Uni-verse, literally means ‘one song’.
“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.” -Chief Seattle
