Being in water changes us.
We know that we can hydrate from the inside, such as by drinking glasses of water or tea during the day. This refreshes us, and gives our cells the hydration they need to do their work.
But we also can hydrate and heal by immersing our bodies in water: in a long shower or bath. By soaking or standing in a hot tub or warm springs. Or by swimming or floating in a pool, river, lake, or ocean.
There is something that happens to the skin in water, and to the body in water, that causes us to revert to a state of joy almost instantaneously.
Our skin feels different: instead of air on our skin, we feel the denser, soothing aspect of water. We are immersed once again in the floating Universe of our mother’s womb.
Our bodies feel different; instead of fighting the pull of gravity, they are free to move and stretch much further than we are on land. For those who have pain, this gift is a freedom indeed!
We move differently too: not quick and hard and forced, but fluid and slow and with the water. We move in Flow.
The next time you are in water, consider this baptism. Consider how you are not just washing or submerging your body, but you are washing and hydrating and immersing your aura, your energy body.
