About The Spirit of Water
Our Inspiration... Dr. Masaru Emoto
Water Blessing Labels were first inspired by the pioneering work of Dr. Masaru Emoto as he researched the way water demonstrates consciousness through its molecular structure and its inherent ability to respond to our thoughts. His work and the practice of blessing water was featured in the movie, "What the Bleep Do We Know?" Dr. Emoto's work with Hado – the spirit in all things – has convinced us, our blessings can and do work in amazing and profound ways. When we charge our water with blessings, and give focused attention to our thoughts, the energy lasts forever. We are deeply grateful to Dr. Emoto for finding the vital link between water and human consciousness. His contribution to the world are infinite.
About Shara Gardner, creator & owner
Since 2003, sales and production of Water Blessing hasn't stopped, even though her original partnership dissolved in 2005. Alone, Shara took over the business and nurtured it to its current level. This was a labor of love. Although this business is also a spiritual practice to bless water and the people who want to find answers, she creates art that touches her heart, and balances that with the focused intentions of running a serious (not hobby) enterprise.
In 15 years, The Spirit of Water has sold close to 2 million blessings all over the world, and there seems to be continued affection for her simple little intention labels as more people become aware of Water Blessing Labels through social media. Water blessings are a universal way to touch people's lives through intention, prayer, and the scientific/spiritual responses of water molecules.
Shara Gardner's contributions include creating visionary art, graphic design, creative writing, package & product design, website design, and new product marketing. Today, the product line features a mix of old favorites and new collections, created each year to encourage deeper personal expression.
When the business began, there were no other Water Blessing Labels on the market. Today, there is competition, but our original designs can be found in homes and markets all over the world. Shara has worked tirelessly to create blessings and phrases that apply to most life situations whether they are spiritually-oriented or offer guidance and encouragement for personal growth. In the past few years Shara has also introduced water-lover lifestyle gifts and products that delight her senses and show her love for water and its many dimensions. She not only blesses all water, but also helps support projects that provide clean water and clean oceans for all.
As a personal love and sideline to the Water Blessing business, Shara considers herself to be an Elder Water Goddess, a playful sea gypsy woman who cares deeply about oceans and all forms of water. The Water Goddess collection of gifts is a strong reflection of her identity with Water Spirits and she uses profits from those items in the store to support her stewardship of world waters. Shara's spiritual base lies deep in blue waters where she gets all her inspiration and spiritual support for her life and her art.
In addition to managing The Spirit of Water, she also facilitates Water Blessing Ceremonies & Workshops. She frequently facilitates Water Sound Healing Sessions in conjunction with Wild Water Goddess Weekends. She is the founder of the "Water Spirit Mystery School." She has authored five books: "Radical Peace," "Free Will Abundance," "Water Divination", "Romancing Your Life," and "Abundance Mantras." She recently presented a new workshop series entitled, "The Dreamer, The Builder, and the Shaman." It is focused on helping women start and manage small businesses the shamanic way. Shara writes a monthly blog about the insights and teachings she gets throughout her life with water.
