Thinking Out of the Blue...

Life sometimes throw things such as dislikes, fears, anguishes and phobias on your path. Sometimes there is a logical explanation for it, such as an allergy but in other cases such fears can be debilitating like my phobia of water. I had a drowning experience as a child and that fear of water has stuck with me ever since. I don't like water, period. I don't mind swimming in clear, calm water where I can see the bottom and where I lay my feet. But the dark waters, the opaque waters, the raging waters...
Water is life, water is death. It has an energy, it is healing, it carries emotions & feelings yet no human can live under water. It is the realm of water creatures and all sorts of aquatic beings (some very ancient) that you don't want to mess with. I read about a theory that the reason why the vikings were such master sailors is because they revered the spirits of the sea and had an understanding with them (that would make sense to me). More recently I read that blog post regarding water spirits in folklore. Once again they are not to be taken lightly. Some of these water Elementals are also in control of the weather and can bring rain or drought whether they are acknowledged and respected or neglected and just part of the forgotten folklore. But the crazy weather might just be a projection of our "modern" way of life...
Anyway all these readings have been lingering in my subconscious and brought me to the conclusion that this fear of water, this aqueous dead end is probably an area where somebody somehow doesn't want me to wander. I'm not saying that I will ever get rid off that fear but I might be able to play around it, learn a few things and maybe get some blessings/help from water spirits along the way. I'm even starting to like the color blue but this is another story...
