Aqua June Is Coming - Spread The Tidings!
June the 8th, all sea lovers are invited to partake of their favourite kind of H2O - salted water - as it will be a special day in which we will all give our thanks for the oceans that we do have: and pledge to defend them forevermore as well.
You see, June the 8th was chosen by a real sea hero - Ocean Defender - better than Aquaman, infinitely better than Sub-Mariner and all-around more efficient than the Defenders Of The Earth as well: for it is an organization, a very real one made up of very real, flesh-and-bone heroes, that does exactly what the name indicates it does!
The contingent of this great organization based in Hawaii (appropriately named OCEAN DEFENDER Hawaii - duh! Makes me think of my good old plans for an AQUA FORCE Atlantic and AQUA FORCE Pacific - ahh, excuse me while I verse nostalgic for just a tiny second here...! It's okay: I'm done! Carry on now!) chose this date to invite everyone to a special gathering day - mainly due to the fact that June 8th is already inked in as OCEAN DAY as well! Our friends over at O.D. Hawaii (they really, truly are my friends too: on Facebook!) want to make the day extra special by staging a special MEDITATION/TIME OF PRAYER for the oceans, for the sea, the sea near you or even a river, lake, whatever body of water that you have nearby and that is dear to you...! This time set aside for our beloved AQUA is to last no longer than fifteen minutes, at your lunch break, so that a maximum of people can participate worldwide! But do not take my word for it - take it straight from OCEAN DEFENDER ''himself'' - here is what was posted as an all-important share on their Facebook page dedicated to this very special event...
We believe that the power our thoughts can not only create our reality but help shape our future.
Our ocean is alive and like any other living entity it needs to feel love and gratitude to stay alive and well. The time has come for us to unite not only physically but spiritually for the healing of our beloved mother ocean. Your actions as consumers and citizens of the world do help and now we want to ask you for your spirit to align with ours in the process of the healing of our seas.
June 8th is ocean day and have chosen this day as our gathering day, the day we all unite spiritually for the first time to do part of our jobs as healers and light workers.
We have received blessed water from very special source and we have been asked to share it around the globe so that it can heal our oceans faster. We have chosen specific countries and areas of the planet making a complete circle around the world so only 22 people will receive the blessed water.
We invite everyone else to gather by the ocean or any body of water if you can and meditate/pray for 15 minutes sending all your love and gratitude to the OCEAN at 12:00 pm noon June 8th 2013.
For those who don’t have any of the blessed water, be empowered to bless a small amount of sea salt with water mixed in a wooden bowl and then pour it in the ocean or any body of water at ceremony time. Please fell free to share your pictures with us on our FB Page Ocean Defender Hawaii
We will be in Kauai blessing the waters of Anini bay.
We are still looking for people in the Middle East and India if you know of anyone who would like to help please message us here.
We, here, at Aqua Musings, had no idea sea lovers were few and far in-between in India and across the Middle-East: just one of the many things one learns when befriending THE MIGHTY OCEAN DEFENDER! But we digress...
The fine people at Ocean Defender included a picture that, for them, exemplifies best what a quarter of an hour of meditation by the sea or prayer for the ocean is all about: it is the picture below, a fine work of art to be credited to one Valerie Millett...
Picture yourself now, on June the 8th, assembling with all sorts of fellow sea lovers - and stopping for those few minutes, taking a break from the hellacious pace society has you on just to keep up, pausing to commune with the ocean...
And, if you are not fortunate enough to be close to any banks, any beaches, any body of water at all, do as the smart people of Ocean Defender suggested: pray over a small amount of sea water mixed with water in a wooden bowl - the full-on medieval magic effect right there! You'll have to pour it into the ocean (or a river, or a brook) by ''ceremony time'' - 12:00pm noon, eastern time (we assume!)
We, at Aqua Musings, encourage one and all to participate that day - and to pray, meditate and send good vibes to the oceans, and its creatures, all over the world, any other day too.
However we will beg to differ from OD's point of view (not espousing AC's here - fear not!) as to the ''blessing'' part there... The ocean water is already blessed water. It is we who desecrate it, day in and day out, with a ll the foul things that we dump in it. Healing it from all this is a monumental task - perhaps too monumental for our own undertaking. But we cannot help it; we feel guilty about it - as well we should! We are guilty: guilty of it all! Our prayers will have no more power than the aquatic make-believe super-duper-heroes have in mending what has been done wrong to our ''mother ocean'' and all of its affluent streams. The Blessed Water overall - all the oceans and bodies of water of the world; over 70% of this Earth - is so Blessed by its Creator. And He (She? To be frank, the Creator is beyond such gender definitions...!) may be the only one able to undo the harm done over this, all-in-all, very short time - since the industrialisation of our society, basically. We can only pray for His Intervention - and ongoing Blessings for the seas and all its denizens. Aye... God - Save Our Oceans. So should be the central core of the prayer said on June the 8th. We don't expect it to be: but it is what it really should be, there is absolutely no doubt about that. Just ask any sea creature... AMEN!
