Water is my element, it always has been.
Even as a young child I can remember water being a huge part of my life.
I was taught how to swim by my mum. Her method by today's standards was quite crude. Throw the child into the water and natural instincts will kick in. I dont know if she did this more than once but my earliest memory is being under the water, looking up at her smiling face. I didn't panic and in hindsight I did instinctively paddle to the surface. Applause for achieving the expected. Parents looking mighty pleased that they reached another milestone.
Did this moment leave any damaging effects? No, quite the opposite.
Water became my place to be. Any possible spare time was spent either at the local pool or on rare occasions when family days were upon us, at the beach.
My favourite time was being submerged in the vast openess of water. Usually in a pool because we didn't need any parental supervision back then.
When there is no one around there is a calmness and peace. Lying face up, eyes closed. Breathing slows as you attune to the echoing of your heartbeat. Everything syncs in time. Let go of all stress, drama, negativity. This is peace.
As I have matured I have implemented water into my living space. Tanks filled with colourful fish, trickling water that serves a dual purpose: aeration and fltration for my aquatic companions and meditative melodies for my soul. Visual hypnotics that can last for hours.
No need for talk, just sit and appreciate.
I would highly recommend that you find your element and embrace it completely.
Regenerate the calmness amidst the chaotic world outside. Let the vibes flow freely.
