Water is the hottest element of 2020! Many are hearing the call of water because it is essential to our being. Did you know that our bodies are made up of 80% water at birth? When our levels reach 50%, we die. Incredibly, research demonstrates how water changes with intention. Stay hydrated and give love and gratitude to water and yourself whenever you can. Your body will thank you! Read about quantum physics and cold water.

In our culture, we often avoid, repress, deny or minimize experiences and emotions that are perceived and judged as negative. Yet it is precisely when circumstances are beyond our control (such as now), that darkness and difficult emotions can come to the surface.
