While it is nice to enjoy a stroll along rivers and waterfalls, to drink spring water, and to swim in a lake or the sea, this is not really work. It will never produce the slightest change in you until you learn how to truly connect with the water, how to speak to it and form a link with it.
In order to enter into contact with water, the first condition is to approach it with respect, knowing that it is inhabited by beautiful and pure entities that will only be well disposed towards you if you have love and consideration for them. For example, if you want to swim, especially in a lake, you must be careful to put yourself in a suitable state of mind. Begin by asking the water entities for permission, because in bathing there, it is as if you were discarding your impurities in their home, and you must be conscious of the fact that you may upset them. So be vigilant.
