Life on our planet is unthinkable without water.
Since the human body consists for the most part of water, we have to constantly ensure that our water balance is balanced. Water is an element that is always in motion.
Water stores and transmits information.
Hence it is necessary and helpful to consecrate the water before using it for magical purposes.
In the ritual in the West, the element of water stands for the unconscious, intuition, dreams and knowledge.
