There is mystery and wisdom in how water refreshes and restores the balance in your mind, body and spirit.

After a vigorous workout or several hours of yard work, you can’t wait to take a shower and feel clean and cooled off. A shower is relaxing and calming. And, a shower can be a mystical experience when you mindfully listen to the sound of the water and feel the sensations on your skin.

Then take it a step further and imagine the energy of the shower washing through your aura and energy field, flushing out the anxiety and any discordant emotions you’re aware of. Allow yourself to be totally present in body, mind and spirit to this experience. This is a very good grounding exercise and an excellent way to recoup your scattered energies.

There are times when you can’t hop into the shower if you need a quick way to come back into balance. So here are some suggestions for other ways to refresh and restore yourself with water:

  • If you live or work near a body of water, river or stream you can easily see from inside or outside of where you live or work, plan on a few minutes to gaze out at that water and to allow it’s vibration to soothe you and support you.
  • If you have photos or framed artwork of water falls, sunsets over water, anything with water in it, consider using those scenes for a short reflection. Imagine yourself there walking at the edge of the waves on the shore, or standing near the spray from the waterfall. Allow your consciousness to shift into a kinder and more gentle place. You will feel refreshed and more productive when you come back to the tasks at hand.
  • If you can be by yourself for a few minutes and block out all distractions, close your eyes. Give yourself permission to let go of any tension or urgency in whatever you’ve been doing. Imagine a shower of white light coming from above you and flowing all over, around, and through you. Feel any burden you’ve been carrying begin to lift; allow any issue you’ve been concerned about begin to let go. Choose to be totally aware of yourself as a spiritual being living in the human experience. You will find yourself more positive and able to see things from a bigger perspective.

And yes, if you have the chance to watch a summer rainfall from a safe place, it’s a glorious experience to see and hear it coming down. It’s exhilarating to inhale the freshly ionized air. It’s a mystical experience to be part of nature refreshing and refurbishing from head to toe.
