Hello Water Friend,

Even though most of us take water for granted because it is so commonplace, it actually has some mysterious properties—both in nature and in the human body.

For example, have you ever considered the fact that when other substances go from the liquid state to the solid state, the density of the solid form increases and becomes heavier and thus sinks in the liquid?

So, why then does ice float? This is one of the most mysterious things about water. If you don’t know the answer, you might want to read our feature article on the “Mysteries of Water in Nature and in Human Life.”

In the human body, water is involved in every single bodily function. We would simply die if we lost 50 percent of the water in our bodies.

On a more positive note, water’s power to heal in the body is significant. Not only does proper hydration improve every function in the body, water is the transporter of energy and information.

Thus, water is used in many health modalities from hydrotherapy to homeopathy.

And if you have spent any time walking on a beach or sitting by a river or lake, I am sure you have experienced the calming and healing effects of water on your mind or emotions.

Scientists now refer to this as the Blue Mind effect of Blue Space, a term used for any body of water. See “Water and Solitude” below to learn more.

With gratitude for the many life-giving properties water,
