I’m a water snob. I don’t drink just anything. If Ben Franklin had access to a pristine spring, and didn’t have to make beer to get a potable liquid, he probably would’ve said, “Spring water is proof God loves us and wants us to be happy.” But he was working with what he had, which led to beer. Luckily, we’re past that and with a couple clicks of the mouse and keyboard, you can find a spring close to you, see pictures and read reviews, all in your pajamas. Or you could distill your own water. I used to be all about spring water, but right now I’m on distilled water and am really enjoying it. I’m going to mention some reasons why one might want spring water, and then I’ll cover why I like distilled and what I think the best method for conditioning is.
Why spring water? Because traditionally, it’s the best, most of the time, unless it’s raining. Rain was essentially distilled water, pre-industrial revolution. There’s a reason so many bottled water companies market their water as “spring water.” However, it’s important to note that “spring water” is a very loosely defined term, at least in the bottled water industry. Most bottled waters are from a municipal supply anyway. Most of these, like Poland Springs, are in plastic, so even if it were true spring water, it would still be best to avoid it. If I'm drinking bottled water, it's got to be true spring water in glass. My favorite is Castle Rock.
I’m trying to be a “glass half full (of spring water)” kind of guy, so I’m going to avoid writing about hydrofluorosilicic acid, chlorine, trihalomethanes, pharmaceuticals, barium, nitrates, nitrites, perchlorates, haloacetic acids and the multitude of other contaminants in tap water. I’d like to cover a few very basic points, that could inspire you do continue your own research.
A crystal is defined as a substance having a naturally geometric form with symmetrically arranged plane faces. A snowflake fits that description. Dr. Masaru Emoto shows that intentions can alter the crystalline structure of water, made visible when frozen. Positive, loving intentions result in more intricate and pleasing shapes while negative thoughts result in incoherent, asymmetrical structures. Different frequency vibrations (from a hum to a thought) also create different shapes and patterns. Placing sand on a plate, and introducing a specific sound results in a specific pattern. That visual pattern is a representation of information. Personally, I want my water to have positive, beneficial information. Growing up we had a well, and my dad always told me it was important to drink water where you live. He never gave a solid answer other than, “it just makes sense.” He was lucky enough to grow up with spring water flowing through the pipes of his house. I now understand why drinking your own local water is important. Water carries information about your immediate environment. It picks up the local vibes and delivers them to you!
Water is a very unique substance, in that it’s present on Earth in 3 forms: solid, liquid and gas. It’s also very special because it gets denser, until it hits 39.2°F, at which point it expands. It's at this point that is harnesses the most energy. It is the product of hydrogen from our Sun meeting oxygen from our Earth.
So let’s get one thing straight right off the bat. Water is living. The majority of your body is water. As we age, we dehydrate. An infants body is ~75% water, while an adult averages 50-60% water. From there it can be extrapolated that water is a youthening agent. Dr. Batmanghelidj, in his book, Your Body’s Many Cries for Water, argues that thirst is not the only sign of dehydration, but many common ailments are actually the result of dehydration. Dehydration can be caused by a few different factors: poor quality water, insufficient water or excessive water (ie. inadequate salt intake). The water you drink becomes your blood.
A good friend of mine once said “all water is created equal.” I replied, “that’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.” On second thought, she might be right. The water is merely a medium that responds to the environment. If we pollute the environment, we get less than ideal water. That doesn’t mean a million years from now fungus won’t use the water and remove radioactive particles, the water molecules could seep back down through the ground and then get pulled back up through a spring. I don’t know if I can conclusively say that water doesn’t make decisions, but follows (flows with) patterns of nature. It’s the ultimate intuitive, I guess.
In California at least, the best water I see people drinking isn’t water, but pressed juice. Juice is water with lots of other stuff in it. Water is foundational, vital. Plants use and store water. This gives it a specific, organized structure, just like a plant is deliberate and organized. Think hologram. The plant is organized on a macro level, ergo it’s organized on a micro level. Fruit and vegetable water contains within it countless compounds beneficial to us, including water!
Distilled water is immature water. It’s pure H2O, and it pulls to it whatever is around. It hasn’t been run through silt, tumbled through rocks (crystals and polycrystals), or vortexed (or dynamized, what a great word!). That is by no means a bad thing, but something to keep in mind. Distilled water is a blank canvas. Are you trying to pull stuff out of your body, or are you trying to push stuff in? I started by pulling. Straight distilled water. Loved it, I could feel myself opening up, calcification leaving my body. Within a month I had already noticed my flexibility improving. Now I alternate between drinking immature and conditioned water. That makes sense to me, because in the wild I would probably alternate between spring and rain water, depending on availability. Below I will spell out how I condition my water. The point of this is to try mimic as close to clean spring water as possible. I use the Waterwise 7000 Automatic Distiller. It works great. Auto-fills, auto-shuts off. It's very easy to clean, the chamber just pops right off.
- Chill - Yourself and the water. You don’t want to prep the best water when you’re pissy. The water will hold information better when it’s densest. The denser the water is, the more energy it contains. Weird right? Because it’s cold!
- Mineralize - I add sea salt. At times I add Omica ActiveIonic Concentrated Fulvic & Ocean Minerals.
- Vortex - Spin it by moving the container or stirring with a wooden spoon. I don’t use metal with distilled water, or plastic.
- Structure - Anything you add to the water will structure it, so be selective. Salt and Crystal Energy will do this, as will vortexing. Those aren’t the only ways though, put some intent in your water! Crystal Energy will give structure to the water. It also lowers the surface tension of the water, making it more permeable, and sudsy. Salt does the same thing on a smaller scale. Haven’t you ever notice how foamy the ocean is? Because it has a low surface tension and can break easily and trap air.
Drink up! I hope you enjoyed reading this!
