Dear Watery Ones,
Today I come to you with a heavy and very frustrated heart. I feel like I have been screaming this topic from the tops of my lungs for years now. For those that deeply understand my frustration please keep doing the hard work of protecting and cleaning the water. For those of you still putting yourselves first lets talk…
Flowers are beautiful and it seems natural that we would want to give them as offerings. How can you resist the sweet smell and brilliant colors? Working closely with nature perhaps gives you a natural inclination to working with water and plants. Flower essences and floral baths are certainly among my favorite practices. However, when it comes to working with a natural body of water we must be careful not to accidentally Curse the water in our efforts to Bless it.
I have written about how to properly give offerings to water spirits and older practices of depositing the offerings in the water in magazines, my books, and blogs. I have also created videos of this and mention it each and every time I lecture. When I first wrote these articles there were probably less than a dozen Water Priestess in the world. Now, it is trending and some of you either haven’t read these, have read them, and refuse to listen or are just ignoring the most important part of being a Water Priestess… to Protect the water!
At this point, not a week goes by where I don’t see some sort of image with a “maiden” in the water holding perfect, store-bought flowers. Now, in theory, if these flowers never touch the actual water, if they are there as a prop only and every bit of them goes home with you then there is no problem. Enjoy your flowers, enjoy your photoshoot they are a lot of fun and so empowering! Plus flowers are pretty, there is no reason not to take photos with them!
However, this is not what I am talking about. I am talking about people who call themselves water priestess or some variant thereof not only taking photos holding the flowers, but with them in the water, and sometimes throwing petals around in some sort of mock blessing ritual. The reason I say mock is because even if you think you are performing a blessing ritual with these flowers, the second those store-bought petals hit the water it becomes a CURSE.
When you willingly place foreign objects into the water and they contain chemicals such as pesticides and growth hormones you are not helping the water. Unless your flowers are homegrown and organic then they were most likely grown in a Hot House. Essentially they are grown in a flower lab. Flowers that are homegrown look much different than store-bought flowers. Have you ever noticed how big and perfect the flowers in the store are? Have you noticed how you can have out of season flowers during the wrong season? Have you noticed how much larger they are? Have you noticed that they contain no flaws and no bug chomps? This is because they are so pumped full of preservatives, pesticides and are grown in a garden laboratory setting. How can putting these things in the water be a blessing? Your words or “pure vibrations” do not cancel out the chemicals you just put in the water. No amount of Reiki, Prayer or Light working is going to clear away harmful chemicals from the petals now floating in the water. If you want to swim in these flowers save them for your home bath.
The Water Spirits have been screaming in my mind and heart to the point that I am willing to rock the boat to clean the waters. My path is dedicated to serving the HIGHEST GOOD of the water, even if that means not being popular, liked or trendy. If my words bother you, take a deep look at your shadow and try to understand why. However, what follows are not my words so if you will not listen to me, listen to the Water Spirits
So reluctantly I give you this message, direct from the Water Spirits. Received the night before last during the Pisces Full Moon ritual. Where I communed with them and they insisted I pass this message on. They are angry and say enough is enough. Do better or face the consequences.
A message from the Water Spirits:
“We see you take the name Water Priestess for selfish gain and not that of benefit to the water. We watch you claim status and rank in a path you no naught about. Then you spread your chemical-laden flowers, altered by scientists and full of growth hormones and pesticides. We see you as you soak up the attention for yourself, basking in your own accolades. As we soak up the poison you just place in our sacred body. We are stuck with the bane of your selfish desires. That then in turn inspires others to proclaim love and light while sprinkling the very same poison in our waters, thus destroying the very thing you claim to be a spiritual leader of. We have seen this all, we are memory, we will not forget”
So to sum this up I am publicly retracting my suggestion to only put organic, homegrown flowers in the water and only on special occasions. I will now stand firm in saying never put anything foreign in the water ever. Some of you are so self-centered that you don’t have the wisdom to make good decisions. Hopefully, this is more clear and you can understand now. If you can’t understand that the primary job of a Water Priestess is to protect it, not pollute it. Then perhaps you shouldn’t call yourself Water Priestess.
