“WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE, And not a drop to drink”




And not a drop to drink


By Mary Nell (Kennedy) Carson and contributor Dulce Levitz


These are well known Lines from “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The speaker, a sailor on a becalmed ship, is surrounded by salt water that he cannot drink.

What is water and why are we dependent upon it for sustaining life?

Water is the most abundant molecule on Earth. Approximately 70% of the Earth’s surface is water. Water is also the only substance on Earth which naturally occurs in a solid, liquid and gas form.

The human body is between 50-75% water.  

What Is the Function of Water in the Body?

Water serves multiple purposes: Water is the primary building block of cells.

It acts as an insulator, regulating internal body temperature. This is partly because water has a high specific heat, plus the body uses perspiration and respiration to regulate temperature.

Water is needed to metabolize proteins and carbohydrates used as food. It is the primary component of saliva, used to digest carbohydrates and aid in swallowing food.

The compound lubricates joints.

Water insulates the brain, spinal cord, organs, and fetus. It acts as a shock absorber.

Water is used to flush waste and toxins from the body, via urine? Water is a basic molecule made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. When these three atoms come together, they form a strong bond that is difficult to break. The strength of this bond keeps a water molecule together for millions and even billions of years.

As we see we cannot live without water.

Since we see that pure water is our life, questions are raised;

What is Damaged or Dead Water?

Companies who sell water purifying units explain it this way:

Until recently it was not understood that pollution and EMF had an additional damaging effect on water by causing the molecular clusters in water to disassociate and to rob water of its life-energy.

In the case of damaged or “dead” water, the all-important energetic functions required for the proper functioning of all life forms are rendered defective and even nonexistent.

Dead water has had the health giving and beneficial molecular vibrations removed from it through piping, electro-smog and chemical poisoning. The potent energies that the natural, healthy water had acquired through absorption of nature’s energy and its exposure to beneficial underground magnetic fields are lost.

In some locations water is full of energy, sometimes it is sluggish and exhausted and in some conditions it dies. Most of our water is dead. Almost everything we have done to water has polluted and destroyed it.

Water treatment plants make water safe to drink, but they destroy water’s life giving properties. Chlorine and other heavy metals are not good for water because this distorts water’s healthful crystalline structure. Keeping water in stagnant storage tanks and forcing it to travel through miles of pipes strip water of its natural energy and oxygen, disrupting the hexagonal clusters. By the time water reaches home, it is devoid of healthful properties.

More and more people are hearing the expression, “our tap water is dead water”. We already know much about the health risks in chlorinated and fluoridated drinking water. Yet, little is commonly known about the actual energized forces at work in clean, naturally-flowing, vibrant water; which enable it to so effectively perform its functions.

So how about the safety of bottled water?

“He, who has the biggest pump, gets to take the most amount of water” “Big corporations”

The cost of bottled water is higher than the cost of gasoline. How could this be; this is supposed to be a free resource.

“Water is a basic human right and is necessary for the survival of life on this planet”

The plastics used to bottle this water are causing all sorts of environment destruction and issues. This is also causing suffering to those who live next to plastic bottle manufacturing plants, such as Flint Hills in Texas; those living near these refineries are suffering for many debilitating illnesses, and the surrounding ground water is also being contaminated from spills. This affects all of us!

Bottle water is not environmentally safe, to our bodies and our planet; and also linked to many diseases and birth defects. Bottle water companies are taking water from mountains and lakes and removing this precious resource from areas where this water is needed, and then transporting it all over globe; by doing this they are destroying the natural resources and the land in these regions.

We are not innocent; as consumers we are also contributing to this issue. It’s also about supply and demand; we must limit or altogether stop the purchasing and using of these and other harmful products.

Some bottled water and other drinks are heated at high temperatures before being placed into plastic containers (Called “hot filled”); we need to question the safety of this?  The EPA warns us not to leave filled plastic beverage containers in a hot car or in a freezer, then why is it safe to heat these liquids before pouring them into plastic containers? Would this not also be a safety concern?

These bottles are made of oil and produced in oil refineries; they contain: plastics such as, PET (polyethylene terephthalate), which is in the Benzene family (causes cancer), Bisphenol-A (the chemical linked to breast and other types of cancer), Toluene (a gasoline byproduct), Styrene (causes cancer), and Phthalates? These chemicals are very toxic to the human body; as explained in the documentary “Tapped” on (YouTube).

The FDA does not have control, of much of the bottled water being packaged and sold. Bottled water is not being tested and regulated by the FDA; the FDA relies on studies that come from the bottled water industry, themselves. We just trust and assume that what we are getting is safe; most consumers are not aware that bottled water may not be safe. The American public is not properly being protected from this; we must be aware of these issues and protect ourselves! Knowledge is POWER!

How water crystals are damaged.

In the New York Times bestseller, internationally renowned Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto shows how the influence of our thoughts, words and feelings on molecules of water can positively impact the earth and our personal health.

This book has the potential to profoundly transform your world view. Using high-speed photography, Dr. Masaru Emoto discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns. In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors. The implications of this research create a new awareness of how we can positively impact the earth and our personal health.

So, as we understand how much water is affected by words and images, how much more we can readily understand the effect of man-made pollutants such as pesticides, herbicides, genetically modifying chemicals, as well as heavy metals such as fluoride and lead, and very importantly, the practice of fraking are ruining our water which is jeopardizing our very lives.

We can more appreciate why the Sioux Indians in the Dakotas are risking life and limb to protect the water on their TREATY land. Because “Water is Life”

Right now the largest Native American PROTECT (not PROTEST) in history is happening in the Dakota’s. What’s going on? Well, the US Government is taking control of Native American lands and forcing them to allow oil developers to drill on their land and move oil via pipelines.

Why are the Sioux and many other tribes subjecting themselves to torture by American law enforcement by being sprayed with water in 23 degree temperature which resulted in massive hypothermia and being sprayed with chemicals in their face to protect their Treaty land? Because they realize that these pipe lines do bust and cause much damage to our environment and planet.

The Dangers of Fracking 

Fracking poses serious dangers to both human health and the environment. The three biggest problems with fracking are: Fracking leaves behind a toxic sludge (called drill cuttings) that companies and communities must find some way to manage. Safely disposing of the sludge created by fracking is an ongoing challenge.

Somewhere between 20 percent and 40 percent of the toxic chemicals used in the fracking process remain stranded underground where they can, and often do, contaminate drinking water, soil and other parts of the environment that support plant, animal and human life.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a least nine different chemicals commonly used in fracking are injected into oil and gas wells at concentrations that pose a threat to human health. 

Fracking also poses other hazards, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council, which warns that besides contaminating drinking water with toxic and carcinogenic chemicals, fracking could trigger earthquakes, poison livestock, and overburden wastewater systems. 

There is much to consider; we must be aware of what’s going on in our backyards. We must insure that there is always pure water for all of planet earths inhabitants; now and in the future.

Water Wisdom…We would do well to remember, that water should never be taken for granted; we should honor it, thank it and always raise it vibration before consuming; thank it for its nourishing effects, healing and cleansing energy. “Water is sacred; Water is Life”

Pure water is LIFE.

If we continue to pollute our water supply will we one day be saying:
