3 Simple, Beautiful Ways To Honor Bodies Of Water
When I was 9 or 10, I had a bike accident - I was hit by a car at high speed while I was riding my ten-speed bicycle. I was pronounced dead for about 2 seconds.
During that 2 seconds, I underwent what I believe is a Shamanic Initiation.
Some time later, I visited the beings I met in that Shamanic Initiation. I have since come to call them "The 3 Grandmothers."
Once, when I visited to their cave again in a Shamanic Journey, they said to me, "Honor your element." I had no idea what that meant, so I kept going back to ask them about it. For a few months, I pleaded with them to tell what they meant.
All they kept saying was, "Honor your element."
Until the one day they came right out and said, "Honor your BIRTH element."
And it still took me a little bit to understand, because I wasn't a huge astrology person at the time.
But as I continued learning about various nature-based spiritual paths, I began to understand what my "birth element" is - it's water (I'm a Pisces sun sign by birth).
So honoring my element - the element of water - became a big thing for me. Mostly, it became a big part of my practice because ... well, I've always been attracted to water.
In this video, I tell about 3 ways you can honor the element of water in it's form of BODIES of water on our planet. If it's your birth element, especially, you should try these. But even if water isn't your birth element, Mother Water still deserves your love - so why not try honoring water anyhow?
If you have ways of honoring your birth element - even if it isn't water - tell me about them! I'd love to read about them!

Peace, blessed be, and namaste!
