“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.”
~ Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad
Water has always held energies of healing and change for me. It cleanses, nurtures and empowers. Today’s oracle is all about using water to tune in to your own deeper soul wisdom.
Is your soul parched? Do you need more of water’s healing presence in your life?
Over the next week, pay attention to water wherever it shows up. The water that comes out of the taps in your home, the water you drink, having a shower or bath, going for a swim or soaking your feet, rain falling, and bodies of water such as rivers, lagoons, lakes and oceans. See what water whispers to you. Pay attention to what it shows you, and how it makes you feel.

♥ The Healing Message and Gift of the Water♥
Each water image has a message for you. I have also selected a crystal to best support the message and energies of change in your life. You could wear or hold this crystal, pop it in your pocket, under your pillow or beside your bed. (If you’d like to know more about working with crystals click here) The Power Word is a word to remind yourself of the quality you most need right now. You can turn it into your own personal mantra by saying “I choose ___________ ” (insert your Power Word).
1. Green Lake:
♥ Message – Green Lake invites you to embrace happiness in relationships. This is the energy of lasting love visiting your life. It is a deeply heart-centred message, reminding you to start by loving and caring for yourself. From this sound relationship with self, deep and loving relationships with others will follow. Green Lake also shows you that love and friendship are moving toward you. This is a huge heart-chakra healing, shift and opening. Family healing can occur. Relationship healing can occur. Recovering from trauma can occur. There is opportunity coming for you to begin new and meaningful heart-centred relationships. Soul mate relationships and life-long friendships are being drawn to you or presented for you to renew and reinvigorate. For some it also heralds the arrival of a child.

Intuition is a natural force, and a normal part of life. In you, intuitive abilities run deeper than for most people. It’s something that has been a part of you for lifetimes. Look to activities and teachers that help you to explore and connect with this wise part of yourself. Time in nature and on your own will help ground you and hone your sensitivity.

This is not a time for living superficially – it’s a time to prepare for decisions, plans and big changes. The Universe is calling you to step into a new phase of growth, productivity and responsibility.
