The Wisdom of Water - Alanna Moore
by Alanna Moore
The Wisdom of Water suggests greater diversification in water harvesting, such as seeking sources of ‘new water’ deep in the Earth, telling how people already find it. It looks at traditional modes of weather prediction, whereby changes in plant and animal behaviour can herald rain with more accuracy than meteorologists. And it outlines how farm planning and landscape design can be used to store water in the soil, where it belongs, in order to reverse the processes of desertification that are so evident in countries like Australia.
Fresh water tends to vanish when human impacts are high. But we can reverse the trend and re-connect with the wisdom and healing powers of water. In this book, author Alanna Moore delves into water’s mysterious origins and manifestations; its energetic and spiritual aspects; global traditions; as well as water in Australian landscapes. The book is unique in giving holistic understandings about water from a geomancer’s perspective, including water divining, historical, esoteric and Indigenous perspectives.
Water pollution and lack of rain may be remedied with subtle means. Rituals can connect us to water’s powerful elemental forces and help us find deep cleansing on emotional and spiritual levels. It is no wonder that it has always been the most highly revered of the elements. This book hope to re-kindle that reverence and provide inspiration for greater kindness and care for all the Earth’s waters. water harvesting.
