Planning a trip?
22 March 2017 is World Water Day. With respect to the importance water has in our lives this should be a day off. Perhaps one day it will be. On this important day, we have prepared a few suggestions for you on how to pay due respect to water.
- Drinking water consciously. Experience each sip of water paying it due respect, sense its life-giving mission and finally thank it. It’s thinking about it that counts, however, a spoken “thanks” will have an even more profound effect. In the morning, it is recommended that you first rinse your mouth and only then proceed with drinking the first glass, best with a few drops of lemon, on an empty stomach. Before the main meal at noon some water will help your digestion. The last few sips before sleep will provide sweet dreams and allow the water to flush all the unnecessary toxins from your body.
Time devoted: 2 – 4 minutes.
- Showering consciously. When taking a shower, picture how water is also rinsing away the psychological dirt and stressful situations that accumulated throughout the day. Be aware that you are at one with the water and that 99% of the molecules in your body consist of H2O.
Time devoted: 5 – 10 minutes, on World Water Day a few additional minutes would do no harm :).
- Let’s learn about water. Read a book about water. Water can be found anywhere on our planet, therefore we see it as something utterly everyday and not as something miraculous. With all its anomalies, water is creating a stir in the scientific world and at the same time inspiring poets with its spectacular forms. We can go dancing with water, the original title of the book is “Dancing with water” by MJ Pangman and Melanie Evans. This excellent book is about the different ways in which water can be structured. We take pride in the fact that our Flaska found its place in the second edition of the book!
Time devoted: a matter of choice.
- Afternoon outing. Let us go to a spring, brook, or a waterfall. Slovenia is exceptionally rich in water and different types of springs are aplenty. Less common are rejuvenating springs. They are intensively engaged by some researchers. Jože Munih is the greatest expert in this field in the Tolmin region, while Primož Hieng recently published a book “Healthy and Healing Waters in Slovenia”. We also have many waterfalls – let us go for an afternoon walk to a waterfall and stop for a moment. Negative ions and water spray will cleanse you and fill you with new energy.
Time devoted: 2 – 3 hours.
- Weekend trip. Our weekend excursions are almost inseparably connected with water. It is irrelevant whether we go to the sea or skiing for a few days, water is always near. However, let this weekend trip be different. Let us make water the centre of our talks and let us educate our children about it. Pick up a can that a stranger discarded and left lying in nature and throw it in a rubbish bin. Time devoted: 2 – 3 hours.
- Short holiday. You can find an idea for the next destination in the book “Vibrational waters” by Fabio Noncentini. The book describes 50 springs with special, healing vibrations. All the waters are classified in a special way. Jože Munih, who was mentioned above, also started a classification in a similar way. You will be able to compare the water of Lourdes, Medjugorje, Saint Conrad or San Damian. The book also cites a spring which neutralizes the harmful effects of modern electronic devices...
Time devoted: 7 – 10 days.
- Journey. Exploring our planet is always interesting and exciting. When thinking about it, you can travel on water, with water, while we most typically travel somewhere near the water. At this point, it makes no sense to name the “classic” destinations such as the Victoria Falls, the Great Barrier Reef and the like. Why not rather be intrigued whether the Hunza Valley is really home to centenarians? How about the mystical mountain of Roraima in Venezuela? Or the River Ganges? The starting point for your next adventure may as well be water and its extraordinary properties.
