We are daily reminded of the water situation here in the Cape (and elsewhere in our beautiful country). No matter how we attempt to find solutions for this, it might be helpful to consider that our intentions make all the difference.

Amazing, life sustaining water.
Amazing, life sustaining water.

Mankind goes to great length to discover whether life exists on Mars. Yet we don’t know. What we do know is that life exists on our amazing, life sustaining Earth.

Science and reasearch have proven that human activity – and the thoughts , beliefs and emotions that make up intention – can directly influence climate change and weather patterns. In short; our attitudes may have a far greater impact on the environment than we realise.

Rain can be generous, replenishing and gentle.
Rain can be generous, replenishing and gentle.

Feelings of scarcity, thoughts like “there is not enough” or   “I am separate, powerless and what I say and do does not matter” all eventually manifest as waste, overuse, greed, pollution, and carelessness concerning our precious resources.

Many of our industries and products are an example of such disconnection that contributes to waste and abuse of our precious resources.

Use water wisely, with gratitude for this amazing life-giving element.

Belief creates result so even “saving water” due to your belief in scarcity and fear of there not being enough, will only result in a further lack of water.

Those who feel the gratitude for our magnificent Earth and her life sustaining elements and resources; those who feel “there is enough”, who want to create a better life for all, who won’t waste water, but use it consciously, wisely and with pure intention, will co-create the solutions so much needed now, regarding water.

Bring on the rain 101

  • Love and feel grateful for our amazing Earth and her abundant life-sustaining resources.
  • Know that rain is replenishing the water supply. Never refer to rain as “bad weather”
  • Rain can be generous, replenishing and gentle. (There’s no need for flooding, that we saw happening in many communities which, in turn, view rain as “ nuisance and do not like or want it).
  • Welcome the rainy season when it comes and know there is plenty of sunshine in between (so do not complain).
  • Use water wisely, with gratitude for this amazing life-giving element.
  • Being grateful for water in abundance never means wasting water.
  • Inventions that can “make water (such as desalinating seawater, for example) must be created from a clear and good intention, never from greed or just the need to make money.
  • Our thoughts are like invisible beams of energy. As with cell phone and WiFi  transmissions, just because we do not see it , does not mean its currents are not effective.
  • Our thoughts matter and absolutely affect the atmosphere.
  • Let us be grateful for the abundance of nature. Our gratitude for this abundance can indeed guide us toward a better use of our life-giving resources, and creating industries that produce what we need in abundance without pollution.
  • I live in a universe that wishes me well, and has my best at heart.
