The Duwamish is sacred to local Native American tribes, and has suffered greatly at the hands of industrial interests who have polluted the waterway with PCBs, phthalates and heavy metals. Home to many forms of wildlife and a vital link for migrating salmon, in 2002 the Duwamish was listed as a Superfund site.
On a recent visit to Seattle, Dr. Masuro Emoto, bestselling author of The Hidden Messages in Water, took a sample of the Duwamish (which showed that no crystal would form from the heavily polluted water), and encouraged Eileen Dey of The Reiki Fellowship to conduct six monthly public ceremonies on the 25th of each month to help heal the waters. After the ceremonies are completed Dr. Emoto’s coordinator will take a comparison water sample in hopes of being able to visually demonstrate the power of energetic intention.
This month, on September 25 beginning at 7:00 p.m., we will gather to complete the series, and as Eileen Dey puts it in her post The amazing effects of doing six months of Duwamish Blessings, “…see what our mojo can do.”
