When the moon rises in the heavens of Lemuria, follow the winding pathway, through the whispering woods, to the moonlit water garden. Sit and rest awhile... run your fingers through the cool enchanted waters...Look for images and metaphors... watch for a message. Begin writing
Take a simple bowl of water and let it act as a kind of enchanted bowl. I always use a black bowl, burn some incense and light a candle so we can see the flame. Spend some time meditating upon the water and the light.
