WATER ELEMENT: while pouring and assembling these anointing oils i was thinking about my feelings towards water, in general but specifically when I’m literally underwater; peace comes over me. 🌊
I understand everyone has different relationships to water, but Do you know what I mean? 💧I have so many tiny memories barely reachable now but that are specific to the quiet and the wonder that I’m dealt while exploring or even just dunking beneath the surface. The instant in which terror and absolute peace are two in the same. I say terror to mean a deep seated fear of death and unknowns, of darkness, of harm. And peace because for a quick moment you are unreachable and held. But free. 🌊 This scenario even happens in the shower! Or a bath! So many lessons can be learned through the plunge and rebirth in a instant and perhaps over and over through a life time. For most of us it’s a compilation. Literal and figurative, the repeat of some stream of lessons, pulled beneath or pushed to our limits, reconciled and reconstructed by the watery ways of our bodies, our circumstances, and our choices. 💧I honor that peaceful pause beneath the water; the holding of the breath, the releasing of fear. The echoes of muffled sounds above and clinking or shifting of pebbles and sand below, like a slow motion video where nothingness can be seen and felt all at once. 🌊Clarification, boldness to change, or accept change more gracefully. To be change. The shift and the shift and the shift and the glide of water, powerful and determined as it permeates and gives and resists. As it serves and retreats and shines and makes shine, as it fills and dulls sharpness, as it cuts and makes sharpness. 💧Water. Yeah, my favorite element. I could wax poetic for a long while about it..
