Sample One-Card Reading with the Faerie Oracle by Fae Moon
It is May now, the height of spring, beautiful with cactus blossoms, and mild, warm temperatures. Humidity is low, giving a quick, cooling feeling to the skin. The lovely faery, Tobaira of the Waters, is here to remind us that even though we may feel comfortable, we need lots of fresh, pure water to keep our bodies healthy and working properly. Gentle reminders to drink more water are felt by a slight headache, minor tension, and irritability for no known cause. Lack of water is the number one trigger for daytime fatigue.
Lack of water can readily be seen in children, too. Overly flushed faces, red ears, red and irritated or dry eyes, daytime rubbing of the eyes, and aggressive, irritable behavior are some of the more easily recognized symptoms of dehydration.
A slight 2% drop in body water can impact short-term memory, cause problems understanding basic math, and can make it difficult to focus on your computer screen or textbook. This mild dehydration can slow the body’s metabolism by 3%!
75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. Ten glasses of water has been found to significantly ease back and joint pain for many sufferers. Drinking only five tall glasses of water a day can decrease your risk of colon cancer by 45%, breast cancer by 79%, and bladder cancer by 50%.
37% of Americans suffer from a damaged thirst mechanism. It is so weak that thirst is often mistaken for hunger! Those midnight hunger pains can be shut down by one 12 ounce glass of water.
Water has been an important healing tool throughout the centuries. The waters in Bath, England, had been renowned for their curative healing powers. In Colorado, the Great Pagosa Hot Spring was recognized by the Ute Indians as having healing and restorative powers. It was used for bathing to help relieve from rheumatism and other joint and general health problems. It is said that there are many benefits that can be derived from drinking the water. Eureka Springs, Arkansas, is a town built around a very remarkable healing spring. The spring’s healing waters became legendary when "...Sioux Indians brought the young daughter of a great Chieftain to the Spring in search of healing. She suffered from an eye affliction which had taken away her sight, and the people were deeply saddened that such a fate should befall their beloved little princess. The young girl bathed her eyes in the waters, and within a short time her eyesight was fully restored, to the great joy of her people who told the story far and wide until it reached the ears of the first white men exploring the region."--The Eureka Chronicles by June Westphal
Through the hard work and loving dedication of Tobaira and her many helpers, water has been recognized as healing tool. We may not be able to take advantage of these famous healing springs, but we do have the opportunity to daily care for ourselves with fresh, pure water... and lots of it! Water is the healing fluid of life. Active children especially benefit from drinking plenty of water. It keeps them hydrated, alert, triggers a healthy appetite, and helps them maintain a calmer, happier demeanor. To help keep you more healthy in body and spirit, make drinking pure, clear water a priority. And, remember, the faeries are there to help remind you to take care of yourselves.
Always check with your health practitioner to get the best all-around health care.
