Now I by no means have a scientific brain (I’m much more interested in how things relate to each other) but I was fascinated by Dr. Gerald Pollack’s recent talk at the Breath of Life Conference. He introduced us to the fourth phase of water (beyond solid, liquid and vapour) to something he called EZ water (exclusion zone).
Although science is not my thing, I am madly in love with the elements (fire, water, earth and air) as the building blocks of life – and often feel the imbalance of these in a session with a client. For instance dehydration feels ‘sparky’, lack of earth often leads to disconnection from the midline, air imbalances often get held in the diaphragms and lack of fire often presents as lack of potency. There is a whole blog just on elemental balance there, but back to water and Dr Pollack...
Water is obviously a key element (we are, after all, made up mostly of it) so this scientific discovery feels to have many impacts on our future work, not all of which are at all clear to me yet!
This fourth phase of water forms at air/water interfaces. One of the things that struck me was the fact that there is a huge storage capacity in EZ water, much more even than you have in your computer! And experiments show that this fourth phase is charged; and, the water just beyond is oppositely charged — creating a battery that can produce current.
A mind-blowing fact is that 99% of our molecules are water! So understanding what charges the EZ battery becomes very important. This is where we begin to realise that we are not that different from the plant world because light charges this battery. Water receives and processes electromagnetic energy (light) drawn from the environment in much the same way as plants.
There are other things, other than light, that charge the EZ battery: green juicing, turmeric, coconut water, and earthing. According to Dr. Pollack, there’s compelling evidence that EZ water is indeed lifesaving and my sense is much will unfold in this area in the years to come. Fascinating!
