Clean, fresh drinking water is essential to human life and is so vital to us that people build cities and towns near places where water can be obtained, and Wars have even been waged over water.
Three-quarters of the Earth’s surface is covered with water, two-thirds of our human body weight is water, fruit and vegetables are three-quarters water and some simple plants are even 99 per cent water! There is no clearer liquid in nature than water, and the amount of water remains exactly constant……there is never a drop more, never a drop less on our planet. This story of circular infinity, of repeated rebirth in different forms, is like the soul itself.
Yet, why despite its role in the cosmic hierarchy, why when we live in a country with an almost abundant supply of water do we neglect to drink enough of it? Why do we neglect to nourish ourselves with this elixir of Life itself?
The following is a list of 7 reasons why water truly is Life:
(1) Improves the functioning of the Brain.
Every cell in our body depends on adequate water to ensure proper functioning, and the brain is no different. Water can significantly improve our ability to think and remember!
(2) Makes us more Energetic
By removing toxins and waste products from our body
(3) Aids weight loss.
Water increases our metabolic rate, contains no calories, suppresses your appetite and removes the by-products of fat in your bodies.
(4) Makes you look younger
Dehydration is bad for the skin, whereas drinking the appropriate amounts of water moisturizes skin, maintains its elasticity and prevents dryness by detoxifying the skin. (Drinking enough water can also combat skin disorders such as eczema, wrinkles and psoriasis!)
(5) Strengthens our immune system
And helps fight against some illnesses, and even has the ability to dilute the concentration of cancer-causing agents reducing the risks of certain forms of cancer
(6) Makes you happier!
Even mild dehydration has been proven to dampen mood, and increases fatigue and anxiety. Water determines the effective functioning of the body and a healthier body means a happier life!
(7) Increases your Spirituality –
When drinking water, drink it consciously. When drinking try infusing your water with love and positive emotions, think thoughts of gratitude, joy and happiness! (Some metaphysical experts have even recommended writing these words on your water bottle to infuse it with those vibrations – Did you know it’s been proven that when the words “Hot” and “Cold” have been written on water containers that the water temperature is actually altered!)
Water has some powerful properties that go beyond the physical.
It truly is a sacred gift that we can use in many ways. Hopefully this has inspired you to think about water in a whole new way. Water can be used in a healing way for body, mind and soul. Water is H20, two parts hydrogen, one part oxygen but there is also a third part that science can not prove.
So, if you haven’t already, please go pour yourself a large glass of water, infuse it with love and gratitude, and repeat this practice multiple times a day!
PS. Drinking too much water can lead to a condition known as water intoxication and to a related problem resulting from the dilution of sodium in the body, hyponatremia. It is rare, but spread out you’re drinking of water through out the day and its not advisable to drink more than 10 liters of water daily over a long period.
“Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield.
This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.”
– Lao-Tzu (600 B.C.)
