This may seem like a silly post, but it's actually in response to one of the questions I receive most often when I am teaching: “Do you have any suggestions on how I can drink more water?” This method always comes to mind because I understand that it is a challenge for many to drink more water who may be addicted to energy drinks, iced teas, soda, etc. or simply find water boring. This process elevates the water to a ritual versus a necessity.
In 1996 I took an amazing energy-healing class from a teacher originally from India. He taught us about the *chakras and their related colors and we learned about light, sound, color, and vibration. We also learned about a process called solarization using rainbow color therapy, in which you place your water in colored glasses and then let them absorb the sunlight. Since then, I have started drinking my water out of colored glasses on occasion once I understood their color frequencies. I cannot quite explain it, but it makes drinking Plain Jane water more pleasurable and it just feels different. The bottom line is this: I understand energy and I like pretty things.
If I'm feeling a bit extra and have a moment to add a fresh edible flower, or a fresh sprig of mint or basil, I will add that too - which makes water drinking seem more like a ritual than a necessity. Water is our first medicine.
Right now I am drinking water from a purple glass carafe with a yellow brittle-bush flower from my yard. Purple-Violet as it relates to the chakra system reinforces Divine Realization and stimulates creative imagination. Perfect for writing this post.
HOW TO SOLARIZE YOUR WATER WITH THE COLOR FREQUENCIES
Decide which chakra you want to work with and choose your color accordingly
Get a glass in the color of the chakra you want to work with.
Fill the glass with water (preferably spring water) and place it in the sun. I usually put mine on my kitchen windowsill in the morning.
Allow it to sit there for at least an hour. The sun's rays will have infused the water with the vibrations of the colored container.
I then incorporate that water with the rest of my water I intend to drink on that day.
The word chakra is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning “wheel”. In both Buddhism and Hinduism the chakras are represented by colourful wheels along the spine from the base to the top of the head. You can learn more about them HERE.
