Be Like Water

Updated: Feb 9

Throughout the past year, I've been having vivid dreams of dancing in water, surrounded by crystal quartz and the expansive sky. I feel a sense of freedom, ease, love, restoration, and nurturing. There is always light and water, and I am flowing or dancing with both. Sigh...

A description of the benefits associated with Crystal Quartz

The Messages of Water

Years ago, I read "The Hidden Messages of Water" by Masaru Emoto, a book that explores the effect of thoughts and words on water. I was captivated by the beautiful pictures of crystalized water after it was infused with positive words. My favorites were "Love" and "Thank You." Emoto's work was also featured in the movie "What the Bleep Do We Know," where it was suggested that if water is affected by thoughts and words, then our bodies, which are made up of 90% water, could be affected as well.

Emoto's Controversial Work

Emoto's work was somewhat controversial. According to Wikipedia, his early work revolved around hypotheses that water could react to positive thoughts and words, and that polluted water could be cleaned through prayer and positive visualization. Emoto claimed that water exposed to positive speech and thoughts created visually "pleasing" ice crystals, while negative intentions yielded "ugly" ice formations.

Recent Inspirations

Recently, I watched a YouTube video of Veda Austin, where she explains her work photographing frozen water with her iPhone. By the end of the video, I was in deep thought about how water, as a living intelligence, captures thought, impression, intention, and word.

This led me to wonder:

  • How might this impact the water in our bodies?

  • How might we co-create with water to enhance our well-being?

  • How might we inform or co-create with the water present, the water we ingest or immerse ourselves in for more nurturing, health, and flow in our bodies using our thoughts, words, music, and movement?

Introducing Veda Austin

Veda Austin is a New Zealand water researcher, author, artist, and mother of three. For nearly a decade, she has been photographing water in a 'state of creation', the state between liquid and ice that she believes is responsive to consciousness. Veda views this phase from three perspectives: scientific, artistic, and spiritual.

Veda's Inspirations and Beliefs

Inspired by the works of Viktor Schauberger, Marcel Vogel, Theodor Schwenk, and Rudolf Steiner, Veda adopted a Goethean approach, weaving science with phenomena-based learning and refined observation. For her, water is not limited. It enters the bodies of people as freely as it enters the bodies of ants; it can be found in the Heavens as well as the Earth, and it never dies, always reincarnating between liquid, solid, and gas. Veda believes that water is FLOW—it does what it is.

Quotes from Veda

Here are some thought-provoking quotes from Veda Austin to ponder:

  • "If we think water can feel, we will care for it. If we think it is intelligent, we will learn from it."

  • "Water is the rebel element; it won't conform to the laws of physics or gravity and it can't be killed. Without it, there is no life. It reincarnates for all to see, and science tells us it came to Earth from outer space. Rebellious, nonconformist, eternal and alien... just look at the power we are filled with."

  • "By molecular count, our bodies are made of 98-99% water."

  • "There are more molecules of water in the body than there are stars in the Milky Way."

  • "Water is multi-disciplinary and is able to pick up on things that we wouldn't normally think it would."


Dancing in wonder

Movement Invitation:

Close your eyes, place your hand on your chest, and tune in until you can feel your heartbeat. Let the beat reverberate through your hand, tissues, organs, and internal waters. Scan your body to see if any part wants to flow, move, or unfold. If none do, slowly lift your arms, mimicking a yawn or stretch. Allow your body to gently and very slowly unfold, unwind, and flow. Imagine yourself moving as if in water. Be Like Water.

I hope you enjoyed this exploration into the messages of water, the work of Emoto and Austin, and the potential for using our thoughts, words, music, and movement to co-create a better relationship with the water inside us and around us. May we all learn to be more like water—free-flowing, adaptable, and life-giving.

Love and peace! 💕
