Blue Mind

Did you ever wish you might someday move to a tropical island and share it with the deep blue sea? Water lovers try to live as close to water as they can because water makes them feel happily alive. But did you ever wonder why we seek water for peace and pleasure, yet seldom seek to know the natural source of the waters we drink? Just a question to ponder as you ponder your attraction to water.

The most nourishing waters, the source of living water, comes from deep beneath the earth where it stays for hundreds for thousands of years picking up electromagnetic resonance from soil, rocks, minerals, and organic matter. This is what gives water the ability to nourish billions of lives on the planet.  It flows to the surface and moves by gravity to the places where it can be accessed by all members of Planet Earth. Where water is most present and alive is where it is allowed to be free, moving in its own unique way. This is not water in municipal systems, but water that is found in the wild.

It is no wonder so many of us love this wild and free water. We love it because we are part of it, and it is a part of us. Some forget that detail. For those who remember, we hear the ocean, rivers, and streams call to us and following that call fluid and babbling, thunderous and wild sound, we open our hearts and let water bring us inner peace.

I suppose you could say, we are Water's children. After all, the mother of all life is Water. Some of us have forgotten that important family tie. We grew in the womb, a water-filled cave. As we grew flesh and bones,  we retained 80% of the water. This water was provided to us by our mother's consumption. After she blessed it and drank it, that water was imprinted in our molecules. We swam in sacred water. We grew and developed as we swam; and, as human beings, we cannot live without that percentage of water in our own bodies. This makes us part of all water on the planet... we are indeed, kin. It is no wonder many of us seek water in order to feel alive.

Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, PhD. marine biologist and neuro-conservation researcher found that a brain change occurs whenever people look at water, think about water, or immerse themselves in water.  "Blue Mind" is the term he uses for the process the brain goes through.  The brain immediately activates a calming response to the entire body; and all sensory functions become super-receptive. Finally, science is documenting what shamans, priests, mystics, and spiritual healers have known for millennia. Water is the most powerful change-agent on earth; and since we are water, we respond to that power throughout our minds and bodies. The chemistry in the brain that washes through us when we feel love or pleasure is the same chemical cocktail we experience when we connect with water even in small ways. 

Why is an "ocean view" the most enticing phrase in the english language, and adds an automatic, unquestioned  premium to everything from lunch to a hotel room to a beachfront cottage? It is because almost everyone loves water, loves to be near it, and loves to look at it. We are remembering... 

Stress causes disease, and water reduces stress. The ocean is good medicine for an overworked body and mind, as are the creeks, rivers and lakes. Not only that, but water changes our clarity and our ability to think, create, and remember.

The greatest unexplored mysteries of the sea are buried not under a blanket of blue sky, but deep in the human mind. Ancient knowledge and new information live together in there. They await human discovery. For instance, why does the color blue activate all the same responses as when we think of water or see it? Blue is a light temperature that becomes visible through our brain, not our eyes. This explains why we are not first reminded of the skies when we are shown blue. We have seen the sky since we were born but the human mind doesn't have a detectible emotional response to the sky,like it has with water, because we have no experience with being "air;" whereas with water we have a shared experience of being "Water." Our strong responses come to us because water is part of us. The sky is not, except for the air we breathe; but that is an autonomic function and we usually don't give our fullest attention to loving our breath.

Humans have such a strong and emotional response to water that we automatically attribute the color blue with being water. The brain does this without our conscious knowing. When we surround ourselves with blue, use blue clothing or accessories, or home decor, or see blue in any shade, we are remembering our origin, and creating an open neural pathway to more blue mind associations.

Water Blessing Labels work because they initiate an intention that immediately becomes an energy, that eventually affects the entire cosmic field, but especially influences water molecules. A glass of water symbolizes the vast oceans and rivers. This is a metaphysical phenomenon, not scientific; but it is nonetheless, an accurate description of how blessings change our realities. When we place them on our water glass or drinking bottles, our brains expand because of the emotional relationship we have with water, and we able to use our minds in new ways to manifest our wishes and goals in that expansive space – those new neural pathways in the brain; and we are able to do so with the "higher mind," or the mind that is not limited by conditioning. We are powerful creators. Blessings work with our energy as activators living with a Blue Mind because we are 80% water.

The next time you feel the incoming tide swirl around your ankles, or you wrangle a foothold in the fast moving stream... the next time you dive into a refreshing lake, pond, or river, or cautiously swim into the vast ocean... or tiptoe under a misty or gushing waterfall... or float in the still water of the backyard pool... or stand longer than usual under the refined spray of your shower... or linger in the pouring rain for no particular reason, remember the family ties you still have with your first true mother, Water. We are all endowed with a Blue Mind whether we know it or not.
