[quote=“Wednesday, post:1, topic:8748”]Hi. I am wondering about the recipes for consecration and expelling water. It calls for river water. Crap. I live in the stupid greater Boston area and every freaking river is polluted as fuck. You can’t even eat the fish in some of them. E.A. is infinitely blessed to live where he does. His stuff is pure and untouched, but what about the rest of us?
Is the fact that it is river water trump the pollution? Is it better to just use Poland spring or some crap? Same thing goes for the harvesting of plants and things. Should I just use polluted water, or bottled?[/quote]
I know this post is a bit old but I wanted to chime in.
So years ago, I began to experiment with the four elements by becoming more in-synch with them. I did it via Modern Magick by Donald Michael Kraig. As I did spiritual purification rituals, I noticed some of the physical elements alter each time I came near them. Strange is it sounds, after a period of several years of daily ritual work, water tasted better, earth was more rich and air was purer.
If you’d like to experiment, you could do many spiritual purification rituals and then align yourself more towards water to purify your local area. I’m guessing it could take as long as it did for me. I’m not saying I performed miracles or anything but I did notice that tap water tasted like fresh water. Of course, this was before I knew about water purifiers and such and do remember water from the refrigerator always having that metallic taste and over time, it never tasted that way.
I don’t suggest purifying the entire Boston-area water system simply because I know people will think that since the water is fresh now, it wouldn’t matter if they continued to dump in it or not. Obviously no one cared in the first place.
However, you could do your own supply. It’s probably easier. Again, my medium to enact change wasn’t in purging pollution from water but from myself and then yoking with the element of water later- so basically white magick. I studied magick during the early 2000s so my definitions are a bit dated. Best of luck.
