Take a Refreshing Dip

My Bali vacation in March 2012 was awesome. My husband and i had the privilege to cleanse and purify our Body, Soul and Spirit. We also took this opportunity to cleanse our crystals with the holy water. In Hindu rituals, water is used to cleanse the devotees before and after praying. Before praying to the shrines of Tirtha Empul (where the holy water is), we dipped ourselves into the pool of natural spring water. The water is very REFRESHING!

Kabbalists teach that immersing ourselves in water is one of the greatest tools for spiritual healing. They call it a mikveh, a specifically designed pool of water meant to cleanse our body and soul. Water is the closest earthly form that resembles the spiritual essence of the Light of the Creator. Think of water as liquid Light. Our bodies are more than 70 percent water. When the body is completely immersed, so that not even a single hair remains outside of the water, spiritual darkness is purified.

Special mikvehs exist throughout the world, constructed to specific measurements. But if you can’t get to one, dipping in the ocean, or lake or any natural body of water can do the trick. If all else fails, even the pool will suffice.

When was the last time you visited our great Ocean? Perhaps its time to do it again…

When was the time you connect back to nature: the spring  and/or the waterfall?

If you are living in the urban city, why not the dip into your nearest swimming pool for a refreshing dip?

With Love & Light,

Just a simple singaporean gal who loves simplicity and highly appreciates nature and beauty in life. I love travelling to unique places, trekking, white-water rafting, kayaking, canoeing, caving , snorkeling, sailing and am wanting very much to learn wind-surfing giving the opportunities too. I'm a lover of Nature and am passionate to share my travel-folio. So I created a "connection" on these pages. Occasionally, i will "lost somewhere", meditate and connect with Mother Earth. Trust me its a very very refreshing and connecting experience every time. Someone who continously searching for a place on earth that truely takes my breath away.
