LIQUIFY is the word I like to use to describe a healing experience that takes place in water.
When you LIQUIFY in water that is above 33C , the experience is deeply relaxing and soothing on many levels.
Initially a person is floated on the water’s surface where gentle movement is introduced, following the natural flow of the water and the body’s individual way of releasing tension.
As a session progresses the receiver might be taken under water if this is indicated to be right for them. Further healing can take place as the breath is engaged more deeply.
To LIQUIFY in a natural body of water like the sea, can be wild and liberating despite the lower temperatures. In such cases, I find that water behaves as a catalyst for creative movement that with difficulty complies to set sequences.
Aquatic bodywork modalities like WATSU®, WATA® and Healing Dance® inform my personal way of holding space in water. Currently I am a student of Shantam’s Fluid Presence® way of being in water and David Sawyer’s Prenatal Journey® integral aquatic bodywork.
By taking my healing practice into water I found that it is easier to ground energies from the etheric into the physical dimension. The water acts as a kind of conduit that allows the easier absorption of higher vibrations by the physical body.
The lack of gravity in water also allows for a range and speed of physical movement that simply cannot be experienced on dry land.
The sense of freedom and heart opening that this new found movement creates, releases powerful emotions and generates growth both physically and mentally.
Allowing our bodies to be supported by water is healing in itself. The liquid content of our bodies resonates with the water surrounding us which releases toxic energies from our systems.
In water we feel a profound connection with an all-embracing love that can dissolve all pain and fear in our bodies.
A range of much deeper personal and collective memories can be surfaced in water too, including those of our existence as aquatic beings.
