Question: My friends and I have often experienced that going to a body of water, such as a lake or the ocean, promotes deeper and more reflective thought. Is there any spiritual explanation for this phenomenon?
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Washington, D.C. (USA) in 2019.
Well, it is because the ocean or lake, especially if it is still, is like a mirror. And a mirror is an important symbol. You have the concept of the mirror-like wisdom. You can actually not only feel calmness, but you can actually feel that there is a certain reflection coming back to you from the ocean or from mountains, or from other natural phenomena, even a forest because there is not that human influence. There is not a human chaos that you see, for example, in a large city where often the energies are so chaotic that it is difficult, first of all, to feel the stillness of the mind.
But it is also difficult to know what is actually coming back to you. Is it just mass consciousness or other people’s energies? Or is it your own thoughts, your own energies? When you go to a lake or to the ocean, especially when it is calm, then you can have that reflection. And this can enable you to see something in yourself. But it can also enable you to just feel peace because you are not in the chaotic energy.
