Water: Hydration, Intention and Vibration
Hi there dehydrated friend! Before we get started go grab yourself a tall glass of clean, crisp, refreshing water. Got it?! Great, let’s begin…
Now you might be saying to yourself that you’ve heard and know everything there is to know about water, but humour me would ya?! Let’s go through this quick refresher and then I promise to blow your mind!! *insert jazz hands
Water, it’s absolutely necessary to live.
The human body can last weeks without food, but can only last days without water. This is because the body doesn’t store water so you must give yourself a fresh supply daily to carry out every metabolic process. We are made up of 60-75% water. Your organs’ cells contain water, your blood wouldn’t be able to flow through your blood vessels without it and your brain and nerve tissues are about 80% water. How’s that glass of water tasting now?!
Here’s a quick list of water’s functions in the body:
- Provides lubrication to joints
- Aids in digestion and can prevent constipation
- Hydrates skin to maintain texture and healthy appearance
- Helps carry nutrients and oxygen to our cells
- Flushes out excess toxins that build up in the body
We lose about 2.5-3 litres of water per day through regular detoxification processes like perspiration, urination and defecation (poop!). This level is increased depending on conditions like weather and exercise. Making sure you consume enough water throughout the day is crucial because most of us suffer mild dehydration on a daily basis. Dehydration can be seen as obviously thirst, but can also be mistaken for hunger. You might experience things like lethargy, mood changes, dry or cracked lips, weakness, confusion and low energy. And how much is ‘enough’? You’re drinking enough if your urine is a light coloured yellow as opposed to a dark yellow.
Ok, so I’m about to blow your mind in 3…2…1….
You have the power to affect the water, which you consume. I know, I know, you’re probably about to leave this page in search of that Paleo blog, but hang on just a second! Taking into consideration what we just learned about water and its significance in the body, wouldn’t it seem important to know how you can improve the quality of that water? And right now I’m not talking about water filters, but intentions.
We are all made up of energy. Everything around us is made of energy. We vibrate at different frequencies all the time. Take that negative Nancy who sits across from your desk. Don’t you feel like joining the complain fest that much more when she’s around? What about that smiling face you encounter at the coffee shop; don’t you feel like smiling back? A lot of that has to do with the energy within us and that we give off. The same principal can be seen with water.
I’ve recently been thinking about Dr. Masaru Emoto and his research on how thoughts, intentions and our energetic vibration can affect water. Experiments were conducted on samples of natural spring water to visualize the formation of crystals. Kind of like magnifying a snowflake. It’s interesting to note that tap water produces misshaped or non-existent crystallization whereas natural spring water produces beautifully unique crystallization. This already speaks volumes on the importance of the quality of water we consume, but we’ll leave that as a point of interest for now.
“Thank you”, “You Fool”
One of his experiments included pasting the words “Thank You” and “You fool” on the water containers. The samples of waters are frozen and then monitored under microscope. Defined crystal formations were seen in the samples of water with the words “Thank You” as apposed to non-existent or distorted crystal formations from the “You fool” water. Another experiment was conducted in the same fashion using spoken words to the water samples where similar results prevailed. The water that was thanked formed unique crystallization.
The point is that words and thoughts have a vibration depending on their intent. And the amazing part is that you can change water with your mind! Like a really cool Jedi mind trick without the conspicuous hand wave and stare. If we are thankful for the water we drink and for it’s functions in our body we’ll be adding to the quality of that water. May be take it a step further and be thankful for that bite of food that’s about to nourish your body. May be you’ll stay on this woo-woo train and take it even further. Think about when we have negative thoughts about our bodies and it’s appearance; imagine how that affects our cells. Since we’re made up of around 70% water, wouldn’t that negative energy affect us?
