Today I am so very grateful for the flowing of water. The way it washes me clean. The way it fills me up. The way it overflows my heart and my eyes.
There is so much symbolism to be found in water and its abundance in our bodies.
I recently had a vision during a facilitated meditation of a vessel being held under a roaring waterfall. That the water was limitless prosperity and abundance pouring into me. And where it overflowed it soaked the ground, making it fertile, and new life began to grown.
I held that vision close to me and drank water with a reverence that had been missing in my routine for a while. That night I slept on it and the next morning as is my habit, I journaled.
“The goblet is the representation – WE are the true vessels. We need to allow the light, magic, wonder, power, prosperity, health, wildness to pour into us until we are overflowing. What overflows will nourish the dry ground creating a fertile world with more people that allow themselves to overflow and nourish more ground.
We can empty our cup – and the repercussions are dis-ease and disease. And, our vessels can never be too full – we can never have too much, we can never be too much.
Breathe and let the waters of life pour in.”
Yesterday I found a cheap plastic pitcher in the back of a cabinet and I washed it with reverence. While I filled it with water I prayed. I thanked God, Source, the Universe (whatever you care to call it) for filling me up with excitement and wonder for the upcoming day. I marveled at the creativity flowing into my vessel. I said thank you more please and allowed the water to flow and flow and flow while I poured out my hopes, dreams, and desires.
All day I sipped on that water – I did pour it into a more manageable cup and each time I said thank you more please – and guess what, I had the best day! Several new opportunities were presented to me. Several people reached out to express how I had facilitated a shift for them. I wrote a new chapter in a new book……
All the good things – and even the bad things (bad being highly subjective here) like finding out that the IRS has garnished my refund, a pounding headache, tech issues – I was able to handle with an equanimity that has been lacking.
Last night I decided I deserved a vessel more worthy of all that I was pouring into it – literally and metaphorically. The metaphorical is a work in progress – the literal arrives on Wednesday!
