‘Bless the Waters’ is produced by Amani Friend and imbued with a Native American prayer written by John Ball Running Eagle of the Sioux Nation, and a Native American song dedicated to the ‘Holy Water’ written and sung by Black Fox Pomani from South Dakota. John Ball was a student of Dr. Masaru Emoto from Japan, whose research revealed that water holds intelligence and memory. Following a path blazed by previous Liquid Bloom releases, this music flows as an intentional journey that can be used daily to energize and re-structure water you consume, and to send out your daily gratitude to the liquid lifeblood that creates and sustains life on this planet.
Clean drinking water should be available for free to all people, as a basic human right. As such, this water blessing music is also free to download and share so it reaches the most people possible. Please consider donating as generously as you can, because 100% of the money generated from the sale of this music will be donated to the water protectors of the Sioux Nation, and to The Water Project charity, which builds wells around the world for those in need of clean drinking water.
The natural flowing waters of the earth are the lifeblood of our ecosystems. They need to be protected for all of life on Earth, and for our future generations. At this time in human history, we need to gather and send our deepest prayers to the waters of the world, and especially to the waters that we consume on a daily basis. Prayers of love and gratitude can re-structure water when we focus our intentions on it. With the latest Liquid Bloom track “Bless The Waters,” Amani Friend set out to create a piece of music that incorporates an intentional water prayer, and to provide an alchemical sonic foundation for people to enjoy in their own personal daily water meditations.
O Mitakuye Oyasin
I send out a voice to the direction West, home of the Thunder Beings, the Waquin, the Lightning Beings, the Heyoka and the Black Stone. I offer this water for their blessing of power. In gratitude we align the water within us with the power of the West. May we always choose to walk the right Red Road, from the West to the East.
I turn to the North with my offering of water to ask their blessing. A blessing from the Tatanka Oyate, the Buffalo Nation, and the Red Stone. The Red Stone given to us by the White Buffalo Calf Woman, so that we many always speak in truth. I ask a blessing of truth and sincerity upon these waters, that they may always run pure.
Looking to the direction East, the home of the Morning Star, the Rising Sun, and the Yellow Stone. I lift my glass of water to the truth vibrations that daily gift us with life, and ask for their blessings of love to enter my glass and my body. Fill me with the refractions of love in all the molecules of water in my body
Turning to the direction we are always facing, the Wanagi, the Spirit World. We offer our water to our common destination of the Spirit World and ask their blessing. This blessing flows from the Spirit World into our glass of water, into our bodies, and entrains the frequency of the water already in our body to the vibration of love. Our waters leave us and mix with the waters in the world to bring love all throughout the world. This is the blessing we ask from the Wanagi, the Spirit World.
Looking upwards to my Grandfather, Tunkashila, and Wambli Gleska, the Spotted Eagle who flies closest to your face, and the Blue Stone, I ask your blessings upon my waters. Grandfather, whose voice from the Great Mystery is silence, bless this water. Transform it into the original purity of love it has been so we may walk in beauty.
Leaning close to my Grandmother, Unchi Maka, whose body is so beautiful. From whom all things come, upon who’s face we tread, and the Green Stone I ask for your sweet blessing. Find our care of your water pleasing to you. Help us regenerate the life you have given us, so that it may be in harmony as above, so below.
Let the waters within me spill out into the world as a blessing of love to all.
