I am the sailor who sails the sea
Water, the healer
The energy of Water
As I write this, peaceful protestors, the “water protectors” of the Sioux nation and supporters from across North America are being attacked with water cannons, CS gas, concussion grenades and “rubber” bullets in Morton County, North Dakota. The local sheriff says they’re trespassing and set off fires. The protectors say they’re protesting the violation of their treaty rights by the Dakota Access Pipeline company which wants to build an oil pipeline across their land. Their slogan, “Water is life”, echoes their concerns about the safety record of the pipeline companies and how a breach can endanger the water supply of 19 million people.
The water cannons, in below freezing temperatures, are causing many cases of hypothermia. The people say they started fires to warm themselves. The police say they were “acting in a threatening manner”, yet it is they who’ve set police dogs and attacked them several times over the last months. A woman from New York had her arm almost completely severed by a “concussion grenade”. She’s in hospital undergoing surgery, and may lose it.
In the meantime, President Obama, who met with Indigenous peoples in 2014 and promised to help them, is at a ceremony in Washington awarding the nation’s highest civilian honor, The Medal Of Freedom, to celebrities like Michael Jordan, Diana Ross and Ellen DeGeneres while ignoring pleas for intervention.
The pipeline, supported by Bank of America, HSBC, UBS, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo will go on.
This reminds me of a story I wrote on January 13, 2011, The Water of Life
When we left Atlan, we looked back one last time at our home. The Blue Planet, so called because it was covered mostly by water. And we flew here to Earth; once again, to a new, blue, planet.
And when we fled the destruction of Atlantis, we were the sailors who sailed the sea, till we found new homes in other, distant lands.
When I do my healing I see, once again, our relationship with water. The energies I pick up and cleanse myself with afterwards, are, water. (Fire and Earth and Air and Spirit too, but that is another article on the natural forces, or energies)
I was reminded recently of how out of balance we are, with water. The number of people who are ill with emotional illness and pain, are out of balance with water. (Cancer is an emotional illness as well, but here I’m only dealing with the energy of water, and our relationship with it)
If you search for Masaru Emoto’s images of water, you will see the beauty within it. His crystalline pictures are stunning.
Our connection with the Psychic, or emotional chakras is thrown out of balance and only by exploring those energies can we start our own healing. But I want to speak about water.
It is no coincidence that Australia and Germany had catastrophic floods recently. The Earth itself is out of balance and has lost its ability to nourish us, but must heal itself. Hence, the changes in weather and other disasters in the making. This time last year we had the earthquake in Haiti. The year before that the War against Gaza, another imbalance which is a result of the imbalance within us.
And then again, the floods in England just after we arrived in 2007. The vision of the Asian Tsunami I had ten years before it actually happened. The visions of more, to come.
The earth, like us, consists of water. The weather that affects our food supply depends on the oceans, our climate on the balance between warm and cold ocean currents, and human life, on a safe supply of water to drink. Yet we continue, in our blindness and greed, to exploit and pollute it in a manner that can only be called insane. If there’s one last pristine source of water left, we will want to exploit it for a mining company, or oil sand processing facility, or Coca Cola. And we add a known neuro-toxin like Fluoride to our drinking water and pay a ridiculous premium for bottled water. And, after vaccinations, the primary cause of cancer in society is the pollutants we pump into our air and water. As I said, insane.
But you already know all that. You just don’t know how to fix that.
There is a river that flows across the Universe. When it hits this planet it will sweep us all away. Don’t fight it, just ride it like a surfer riding a wave.
Ps: As I write this in June 2011, radioactive waste from the Fukushima nuclear meltdown continues to pour into the Pacific Ocean. This may turn out to be one of the greatest environmental disasters, ever. What will it take to get people to wake up and heal the planet?
This is why, Trump. Why I said if this is what you need to wake up, so be it. And why I said, the healing begins in 2017. Because you will need to protect the planet. And it starts with water.
Water is life.
