Women have a natural bond with water, because we are both life bearers. We carry our babies in internal ponds and they come forth into the world on a wave of water. It is our responsibility to safeguard the water for all our relations.― Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants
Hello, Beautiful Mamas (and Papas)!
Water is a sacred resource.Water is life. Without water we couldn't live.
How lucky we are to have clean water to drink, to bathe in, to wash our clothes. Many people in the world don't even have access to clean water. Did you know our bodies are made up of about 70% water and our brains about 90%?
Some benefits of drinking water:
▪ Increases Energy & Relieves Fatigue
▪ Promotes Weight Loss
▪ Flushes Out Toxins
▪ Improves Skin Complexion
▪ Maintains Regularity
▪ Boosts Immune System
▪ Natural Headache Remedy
▪ Prevents Cramps & Sprains
With the warmer temperatures these days, it's good to be mindful of our water intake. Drinking about half of your body's weight in ounces each day will keep you hydrated. It could be a little more or a little less depending on activity levels and the water content in your food and drinks-there's more in fruits and vegetables and less in alcohol and caffeine.
Next time you reach for a glass, say a little prayer of thanks and infuse your water with positive intentions. For some amazing inspiration on this topic, check out the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto who claimed that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water.
