GHR 2024 Q1: Our Planet/ Water

Hello Healers!
As 2024 begins, we are dealing with global wars, environmental problems, and lots of division among communities everywhere. It would be wonderful if we all thought like Roana Jones who said, “When I look at our planet I don’t see any borders. So I see you as Citizen of Earth just like me, this is who we truly are.”

It made sense for our theme to be OUR PLANET—everyone’s planet. And remember, “There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. We are all crew.” says Marshall McLuhan. What kind of impact do you want to make on Mother earth? L.M. Wilde said, “When we honor the earth, we honor ourselves.” And I would like to add that we honor each other, too.

This year we will start by honoring our WATER. Quarter two will be EARTH followed by FIRE and then AIR.

“Thousands have lived without love, not one without water.” — W. H. Auden

We can’t live without water. We are made of it, it nourishes us, bathes us, carries us to new lands, holds so many creatures and (I’m sorry to bring this up) so much of our waste in this current day. Our water needs our attention. Leonardo DaVinci said, “Water is the driving force of all nature.”

Water also has power. The same water that comforts us in a warm bath wears away the stone—sometimes drip by drip or by crashing wave. Hydro power is one of the oldest and most widely used renewable sources of energy.

As I have noted on the bottom of this page, World Water Day is March 22nd. Please take a moment to look at the United Nation’s hopes for this day. Appropriately, their theme is “Water for Peace.” Join me in celebrating these possibilities!

You might not know I am an avid open water swimmer and I can tell you if I am in the water I am in my happy place. I personally hold the health of our water dear to my heart. (And, yes, I am a Pisces. LOL)

Thank you for the waves you make in this world. I am grateful for each and every one of you. Please feel free to contact me if I can help you implement these materials in any way. I do love hearing your feedback and learning how you have used The Global Healing Response.
