The Healing of Water



What comes to your mind when you think of water? Well I can think of a few things.


Water gives life to so many things.


Water flows like life, like thoughts flow through your mind, like life flows every day, just as a river, always moving forward, going somewhere.


Water brings healing to so many things – it is like medicine. It brings physical healing as well as emotional healing. Why emotional healing? Remember that feeling when it suddenly starts to rain after a very long drought, as the water starts running and nourishing the earth? Does that not make you feel Joy and Happiness instead of misery?  Have you ever seen kids or animals playing in water and listened to their laughter while they’re having fun with the water? Isn’t it wonderful?  Nothing is as healing as a good laugh.


Water gives energy and it is also able to create energy, even electricity if it is used in the correct way. Look at animals and plants that are weak, the moment they receive water it is as if their energy returns again, just as in humans.

Water is a force not to be taken lightly. It can also bring destruction; it is super powerful in many ways.


Water can heal illness, if we can just remember that little health tip – TO DRINK WATER. No, you will not rust! Your body is not made of metal, so there’s no excuse.

On average, the body of an adult human being contains 60% water. Most of the water in the human body is contained inside our cells. In fact, our billions of cells must have water to live. Think about it, what do you need to survive, really survive; food and water. The human body can go without food for about three weeks, but only three to four days without water.

Water serves a number of essential functions to keep us all going. It first acts as a building material; it regulates our internal body temperature by sweating and respiration. The carbohydrates and proteins that our bodies use as food are metabolized and transported by water in the bloodstream. Water also assists in flushing waste material from our bodies mainly through urination. Water acts as a shock absorber for the brain, spinal cord, and fetus, it forms saliva and it lubricates our joints.

The brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79% water, and even the bones are watery: 31%.

So, can you now see the importance of water? Water is the life force of the human body!!

The brain that consists of 73% of water, always gives you a message when it is dehydrated. Can you guess what it is…?  Yes, a head ache. So, before your run to the medicine cabinet for a headache tablet, rather run to the kitchen for a glass of water or even two. You will find that it works perfectly most of the time to get rid of that headache.

Your skin is 64% water, do you feel dried out, scratchy and itchy, try drinking water instead of putting pots and pots of cream on your skin. Problems always comes from the inside, not the outside. You’ll find that you’ll have fewer pimples and wrinkles, too. (Remember, water flushes those toxins)

Why do we need saliva? Saliva helps chewing and swallowing, it has a lubricating effect, it moisturizes the inside of the mouth and creates smoother speech. It also has a solvent effect which dissolves food and allows the tongue to taste food, a cleaning effect that washes away food debris and bacteria remaining in the mouth. Imagine if you had no saliva, how terrible would you sound when speaking or how boring would food be if you cannot taste it? A glass of water before each meal works wonders; you will even eat less food because it makes your tummy feel full. Good for the figure, lol.

Did you know that when you drink coffee, you are actually dehydrating your body? I know you might like your cup of coffee in the morning once waking up, but a glass of water is so much more beneficial and healing.


Your body is craving for water when you get up in the morning. Drinking 2-3 glasses of water as soon as you get up can rejuvenate you and your health in more ways than you can imagine.

Drinking water on an empty stomach helps in the cleansing of the colon, which in turn increases the efficiency of the intestine to absorb nutrients. Drinking water on an empty stomach helps in correcting bowel movement, which may prevent constipation, bad digestion and intestinal infections. This keeps your gut healthy; we all want a healthy gut.

Water keeps your body hydrated which is important for the proper functioning of the internal organs in your body. This keeps your lymph system healthy. The lymph system balances your body fluids.

The body has its own immune system which helps in fighting against many infections and bad cells. Drinking water on an empty stomach increases the body’s efficiency to fight against infection.

Water helps in eliminating toxins from the blood which keeps your skin glowing, healthy and clear. You can’t let your poor kidneys and liver do all the work alone. Water does not only heal you, it also keeps you beautiful.

When drinking pure clean water, your body can absorb it directly and start with the healing work that it needs to do. On the other hand, if you start your day by drinking a soft drink or a tea or a coffee, the water from these drinks first has to be cleaned and cleared by the kidneys and only then can it start its work. You are also causing your body to use up more energy in the process, energy that you could be using for many other things.

Now I must let you in on a little secret and we all love secrets …

Did you know that one positive word can change water’s structure? There is proof. A Japanese scientist named Masaru Emoto did a series of tests and discovered some very interesting results. Emoto realized both positive and negative words can have an influence on water’s structure by changing water’s crystalline structure. During his study of water, Emoto uncovered some fascinating revelations. He came to see that water was the so-called ‘’blueprint of our reality’’ and our emotional energy and vibrations can change the physical structure of water. Emoto’s tests consisted of putting water in glasses and then exposing the water to different words, pictures, and music. He then froze this water and analysed how these water crystals looked. And through his research and analysis, he came to the conclusion that if we “influence” water with positive words, pictures, or music that water crystals will be nicely formed. On the other hand, if one puts water near negative influences, such as saying negative words, or if you turn on some loud heavy metal music then the results would be the total opposite. Those water crystals will be distorted and formed in an ugly and negative formation. (Click here for further information) 

So, my recipe for this article would be the following:


Always drink water from a glass bottle. (Preferably one should always store any food or liquid in glass containers). 

Take a sticker and /or a permanent marker and write positive, loving words on the container in which you store your water. You will be amazed by healing action and even the taste of the water as you consume it into your body.

These days you can find nice printed glass water bottles from your local health shop with awesome words on them.

Love and Gratitude is the way of living.

Until next time, happy watering!!
