Hydration For Body Soul & Spirit
We are all spirit beings on an earth bound mission encased in a human body. The human body is a well designed machine housing many aspects of our lives, spirit, mind, body. A healthy body can be the foundation for pleasure, function, peace, fun, enjoyment and fulfillment if taken care of in a way that promotes its youthfulness, flexibility, synergy and flow.
Our body’s need solid foods and liquid nourishment to feed the cells, tissues, organs and provide energy to the muscles, bones and brain. One of the most essential and much over looked forms of liquid required for holistic health is water. Water that is clean and alkaline provides an energizing fluid hydrant most necessary for the inner workings of the body. Everything in the body is energy and movement – vibratory frequency. The bloodstream, organs, brain, muscles, heart, stomach, in fact, the entire body requires fluid to function and work properly together.
Water is a conductor which facilitates movement in the body through the cells, tissues, vessels, organs, and all matter in the body. It energizes the inner environment that is constantly required to vibrate and flow. Water is vital for our hearts to lovingly pump the blood that is transported through out the body to brain. Water is critical for the blood to be liquified in the right proportions to be able to flow without stagnation and for the heart to pump without intermittent timing, palpitations or even failure.
Water is a conduit for God’s vibrational frequency & energy to be transmitted to our spirits and for our spirits to send and receive the connection to the Source, God, Creator. Water, too, has a spiritual nature and thus has memory. Water can take form as liquid, solid (ice/frozen state) and vapor (steam/fog). Without water, nothing on this planet would survive. Without water everything including our bodies would be dried up, dehydrated, lifeless and useless. It is the God consciousness in water that is the prime memory that is most suitable to soothe, energize, moisturize, cleanse and maintain the body to function, give and receive from spirit. Even when we take in and absorb food, we are extracting the spiritual nutrients with which to fortify our whole selves. That extraction requires a measure of fluidity.
The body can utilize the nutrient water from vegetables and fruits which would be considered a form of liquifying the body and that is good and necessary, however no liquid should nor can, take the place of good clean tepid, room temperature water on a daily basis in intervals throughout one’s day. Pure clean tepid water is absorbed without shocking or stressing the system or the heart, digestive tract, brain and other vital organs. For those that prefer cold water, cool is exceptionally more suitable to the inner workings of the body than icy cold.
Adequate hydration supports all internal functions and cleanses the body of dense waste matter, toxins and phlegm. Digestion and bowel function require adequate water hydration to optimally function. Our eyes are a prime example of the need for molecular hydration because our eyes are partially embedded within our body and partially exposed to the outside environment. In order to move and rotate without pressure and stiffness the eyes must be maintained in a certain amount of fluid which is nourished by adequate intakes of water.
The skin is the largest organ of the body and requires water from inside and out. Flawless supple skin is maintained by adequate intakes of water and bathing. Often wrinkled skin is housing a dehydrated body and may smooth out substantially with adequate hydration and moisture. Water also cleanses the skin which allows the pores to breathe and create an effective barrier to stave off ordinary germs.
Our hair and scalp needs water. Course and coily textured hair is often dry and revels from regular wetting, misting and moisturizing (just like a dry house plant that revives when watered). Hands and feet appreciate a good soak in nice warm water. Applying certain essential oils to the soaking water will also assist in detoxifying and drawing out toxins from the body. Spirit, mind and soul tremendously benefit from internal intake of water and water bathing, prayer and oils.
Whenever the body’s immune system is compromised or cold, flu, allergies, disease and toxicity is imminent, water is essential to flush and rinse out and neutralize. The water purifies and regenerates. Colonic hydrotherapy is very useful for cleansing, refreshing and anti-aging as it breaks up and rinses out accumulations and waste matter in the colon. This method of internal cleansing has been used by many Yogis and health enthusiasts worldwide and the method instructed to the ancients is referenced in ‘The Essene Gospel of Peace” by Edmond Bordeaux Szekely.
Water has been called the river of life and rightly so because without it life would cease to exist. We can go without food for a good number of days but not water. The efficacy and purification of water has become a controversial subject around the globe, because some water due to the detriment of man’s behavior and/or even climactic changes render some water unsafe or impure or too acidic to be beneficial to the health of humans, Mother Earth and all forms of life. In future offerings we will write and present views on various types of water suitable for consumption (bottled, filtered, spring, deionized, purified, mineral, tap, pond, well, structured, alkaline, and we will discuss water storage (plastic vs. glass).
There is an African proverb spoken by the traditional Ifa Yoruba Prophet Orunmila who said, ‘Water has no enemy’ which was immortalized in a song by the late Fela Ransom Anikupolo Kuti, ‘Water No Enemy Get’, which means that all life force needs elemental water.

The Japanese author Dr. Masaru Emoto wrote many books about the memory and spirituality of water including, ‘The Secret Life of Water’, ‘The Message From the Water’ and others. He brought to the forefront in his writings the knowledge that “human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water” and that “water takes on the resonance of the energy which is directed at it” and that “polluted water can be restored through prayer and positive visualization”.
The Iranian physician Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj presented the book ‘Your Body’s Many Cries For Water’ in which he suggests drinking 2 quarts of water every day and 1/2 teaspoon of salt which balances the inner water balance. He also maintains that regular water consumption can eradicate toxins and diseases from the body.
