There is a calmness that comes over my soul when I am in the presence of water. Water is a mighty healer, and if you've ever spent time at the beach or near a waterfall then you know what I am talking about.
Along my healing journey, water has been a source of strength for me. It has been a place of refuge when no other place would do. I have spent countless hours sleeping under the stars on the beach and watching the sunrise over the Atlantic ocean. When I moved to Atlanta, Ga, I knew that I had to find some body of water to call home. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there are many beautiful waterfalls north and south of the city! What a treat! The power of a waterfall, the majestic sounds, the innerG that you feel when you are near them is magical to say the least. Yes beautiful people, water has been, and continues to be an ally on this journey called life.
Now, if you are unable to get to the beach, or to a waterfall or even a lake (which I looooove), no worries; a tub will do! Let me tell you how much I love taking a warm bath with epsom salt and essential oils, candles and flowers all around, and some beautiful music playing in the background! It is a weekly ritual that works wonders for your nerves and is an excellent way to reap the healing benefits of water. I could go on and on, but I think you catch my drift. Water is life!
So the next time you are feeling a little land locked or feeling like you need some extra H2O in your life, take a trip to the ocean, find a waterfall or a lake near you or hop in the tub and soak it all in!
