“Treat yourselves to the newness of discovery. For you do not truly understand the magic your body holds. It is in this connection to the magic communion with Divine Love can occur. Light fills every cell in the body. Every cell is precious and a universe onto itself. Therefore, the body represents a cosmic temple- a place for the Divine to reside. Upkeep requires simple love and nurturing-qualities of the feminine that must be brought forward again.”
“Conditioning through life has dulled the awareness of the brilliance your bodies contain. Disregard for the body has broken the feminine heart. Perceived flaws, misgivings, and self-hatred pervade the feminine consciousness, and illness finds a home in your shattered bodies. The key to your happiness on earth is revealed when you discover the magic your body carries.”
“You are walking goddesses. Adorn yourselves. Take the time necessary to love your body. Feed the beauty that lives in you through the portal of ritual.”
“Begin by engaging the water elemental. Draw a bath and infuse it with oils, with scent, with salt from the sea. Bring in the fire elemental with candles. Lie in this bath and let the water draw out all your sorrows, all your hatred, all your fear. Feel the loving embrace of water, enveloping every inch in its healing fluid.”
“Water makes no distinctions when it surrounds your body. No part of you is deemed unworthy in its caresses. Mediate on this. The water takes in all of you. Every sacred inch of your flesh it caresses.”
“Engage in conversation with the water elemental. She is a great healer and will offer you comfort and wisdom. Take the time necessary to create this ritual of self-love. Do this seven times between the full moons. A transformation will occur within you. Engagement with an ancient consciousness you all hold will develop over time.”
“Through this simple offering to yourself you will open a chamber filled with memory. The water opens the inner doorways. Immerse your luscious, sensual, sacred bodies into her depths.”
