Water is powerful and can talk to us (as you’ll read later).
I started drinking my water this way for the past couple of weeks and I love it. I can drink so much more water than when I just drink water alone.
Start with chlorine filtered tap water or any chlorine-free water of your choice (but jeeze…NOT Vitamin Water). Then take fresh sprigs of rosemary and fresh mint and tap them gently with a knife to open the leaves so you’ll get the flavor in the water. Add a slice of lemon (Make sure you wash the outside of the lemon before you slice it). I don’t need any sweetener with this water because the mint tastes sweet. You can switch up the herbs as you like.
Use a washable reusable straw as disposable straws never biodegrade. Never. The herbs will float, so drinking it with a straw, you won’t get any “stuff”. (although it’s kinda nice if you get a bit of mint)
Don’t add ice, as your body will use energy heating the water up inside your body. Try to drink room temperature water and save that energy for healing.
Now for the most important part.
Say something nice to your water before you drink it. Even saying the words “love” or “peace” will do the trick. Or a nice blessing…
“Bless this water and allow it to infuse my body and soul with health and happiness.”
“As a child of God, I bless this water that it may nourish my soul and enrich and heal my body.
or try Dr Masaru Emoto’s blessing:
“I love you water, I thank you water, I respect you water.”
Dr Emoto is from Japan and has done research on the powerful healing vibration of water. He discovered that when water is frozen it forms crystals (no big shocker there) but the interesting thing is that the crystals form beautiful patterns when exposed to loving words or beautiful music, but form grey blobs when exposed to hateful words or ignored.
Dr Emoto explains that everything has resonance and so do emotions and intentions. You can transfer the positive vibrations to other things. he says, “We all have the ability to love. We can transfer this energy to anything.”
While some may think this is pure rubbish, what harm would it do to think loving and peaceful thoughts directed at the one liquid that is responsible for your life and health?
Think about the real sanctity of water. You are made of mostly water. It makes up most of our planet, and it is everywhere…from clouds, to dew to rivers, lakes and streams. The very air you breathe is infused with it.
It loves you. Take a moment to love it back.
The supreme good is like water, which nourishes all things without trying to.
Water is life’s mater and matrix, mother and medium.

The Rice Experiment (two of the same jars of white rice infusing with opposite emotions to see the result)
You’re almost there!
This week’s meals are going green. Green for spring…green for health…green for new beginnings.
Jump (like a green frog) over to Flo’s blog for the recipes where you’ll love being green with us!
Next week is the last week in your 6 week challenge! Way to go!
Yes, my new favorite afternoon-break beverage is all those things:
Dandelion root tea with Turkey Tail mushroom-infused maple syrup and plant-based milk!
When I say dandelion, you probably think “kill it!”, but ironically, dandelions are helping some to live. A recent study on patients taking dandelion root tea shows that it causes remissions in some forms of leukemia. It’s cancer fighting properties are being further studied. (The dandelion leaves are great also as they are extremely high in iron and cancer fighting vitamins. Have some leaves in a salad with your tea!)
That brings me to the turkey tail mushroom extract. Turkey tail mushrooms are being studied and have been shown to reduce the incidence of recurrence of breast cancer. Special turkey tail mushrooms are grown just for the study. I could think of no better way to get my daily dose of turkey tail than in sweet rich Vermont maple syrup!
Top it off with sweet mimicreme or coconut milk and you won’t want it to end!
Cheers to your health!
