The Water Element

By Tephyr

What is it....two thirds of the Earth is Water? Something like 90% of your body is water.  Apparently we have a need for water. And the Undines, the mythical name for many of the Water Elementals are everywhere. What a sacred thing drinking a glass of water really is.

Undines, Water Nymphs and Sprites. These are the most common Water Elementals. Our mythologies in all cultures are full of stories. The Devas of this element have been elevated to God hood in many cultures. Such as Poseidon to name just one.

Have you ever been to Niagara Falls? I hope you can get there some day if you haven't. This is one of the most powerful Devas I have ever come across. I was raised on Lake Ontario of the Great Lakes and that, along with the Atlantic Ocean are two other of the most powerful I've known. What do I mean by powerful? The best I can answer is they have a very, very strong presence.  

Undines like fun. Actually all Elementals like to have fun, it's just sometimes their concept of fun is a little hard for us to understand. But they can be fun for us to watch as well as play with them as well. Just go to the beach and there you both are! You can either get right in the water with them or lie on the beach and simply watch.

We obviously need water in the garden, even it we just rely on the Rain Elementals to do the work for us. 

The Water Elementals may* correlate with the direction West in the Sacred Circle.

The Flow of Life's Blood is of the Water Elementals.

* I say may as nothing is written in stone and if you feel another affinity for an element and direction: go with it.
