Meditating in Water


One of the favorite parts of my conscious tours is that we meditate in the water, either in cenotes (sink holes), in the ocean, in lagoons, sometimes in dry caves.. .this makes the experiences to be very unique and special!!

“Water can enhance the power of a meditation—reverberating a mantra’s sound, calming the mind, and encouraging a feeling of non-attachment and weightlessness.”

The image of water is commonly used in meditation as a symbol of the infinite flow that moves through blockages and unlocks inner peace and healing. What better way to access this flow than by turning visualization into reality and meditating in water, rejuvenating the mind, body and spirit in the process? Water can enhance the power of a meditation—reverberating a mantra’s sound current inside a human body of water, calming the overactive mind, and encouraging a feeling of non attachment and weightlessness.

We are over 70% water, so when we are in water, we feel at home and amongst family. We feel like ourselves. Regular water meditation leads to the transmission of positive energy and also provides happiness in life. Water meditation boosts the mood and makes the person energized. It is very beneficial to enhance the confidence in the person. It is also very important to have confidence in achieving the goal of life. The Psychological Benefits of Water In addition to the physiological benefits of water (like reducing muscle tension and joint stress, staying hydrated, and keeping skin moisturized, hair shiny, etc.), there are interesting psychological benefits.

According to scientific studies, being by the sea has a positive impact on mental health. Minerals in sea air reduce stress.Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain (they are also present around waterfalls), which improves alertness and mental energy. And salt in the water preserves tryptamine, serotonin, and melatonin, which aid in diminishing depression, giving us a better night’s sleep, and boosting feelings of well-being.

Even the sound of water has positive effects on our mental health. Water sounds have long been used in meditation to create a soothing atmosphere for our minds. Science suggests that the rhythm of ocean waves and tides coming in and out can affect the rhythm of the neuronal “waves” in our brain, encouraging a more peaceful pace of thought.

Some scientists refer to the sounds of water as “white noise,” in which we can hear any number of things and we are able to let go of our thoughts and let the noise wash over us. In listening to these sounds during meditation, we learn how to be present in the moment and directly experience things as they are instead of getting lost in rumination.

One of the psychological effects we’re most aware of when we’re by the sea, lakes, or waterfalls is a feeling of awe. There’s just something about the beauty and vastness of a natural scene that has a profound impact on the way we feel. Science has even found that such feelings can lead to prosocial behavior like altruism, loving kindness, and magnanimity.

Some studies have even found that awe leads to greater life satisfaction. It fosters a sense that time is plentiful, and people donate more of theirs to charity while valuing experiences over possessions.

In the Yucatan Peninsula there are different kind of water bodies, it hosts the largest underground rivers in the World, which give birth to the astounding cenotes (sink holes) and its beauty is almost unbelievable-sweet and fresh water to refresh specially in the super hot summer days!! There are also many lagoons and the beautiful Caribbean Sea, all of them inviting us to their turquoise waters where I will take you to experiment this amazing way to meditate where we can feel even more connected to nature!!

“Meditating in water has the ability to enhance the impact of your thoughts and words and turn wishes into realities.”

With Love
