The ocean is truly amazing. It is one of the (if not the most) mysterious areas on Earth with 95% of the world’s oceans being unexplored. It’s crazy to think that we have explored outer space more than what’s right here on our own planet!
So why use ocean water as a holy water?
Well, oceans hold a great deal of power, life, and magic within it. Take a look at some of the breathtaking, albeit a bit horrifying, organisms found at the deepest depths and you’ll understand exactly what I mean. In addition, the ocean is obviously a very strong and turbulent force, causing hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, and tsunamis.
With that being said, there is a lot of strong energy that can be harnessed from sea water and thus can be used in your magical endeavors!
My mother taught me how to make this 7 Seas Holy Water and it is the most special holy water to me. I hold it very dear to my heart because it is my mother that instilled the love of magic and the interest in the “supernatural” since I was a child. I have not been able to find any other mentions of this water any where on the internet and since my mother is from Morocco, I will assume it is derived from Moroccan/Berber magic.
Making the water is very simple and very satisfying to do:
- Take a container (preferably glass, but any will do) and collect water from 7 different waves, representing the 7 seas, into the container. It’s not going to be precise and that’s okay, but try to get 7 equal parts as best as you can.
- While collecting this water, set your intentions into the water and think positive thoughts. Recite a favorite prayer and try to harness the energy from the Divine as you do so.
That’s it! Now you can use this water to wash and cleanse your mind, body, and spirit with as well as for protection. You can also put it in your bath to clear your aura and energy field. It’s really good to use when working with Goddesses and spirits of the ocean/water. Use it for the same protective qualities as moon water. What’s great is it can be done at any time of the year and still be extremely potent, unlike moon water which is at its maximum during the full moon.
But be sure to use the water quickly as there are live organisms in ocean water that will end up dying and contaminating the water if you store it for too long. It is probably best to use the same day or the next for maximum energy and freshness. Make some 7 Seas Water and unleash your inner Aphrodite today!
