Hello TLE, As you might know, the Cape regions of South Africa are going through a terrible drought. The dams are bone-dry, overuse of water is being taxed heavily, and my family across two oceans has heard of this on their local news. Newspapers and social media posts are filled with warnings about Day Zero, i.e., the day when we shall completely run out of potable water. Rains in the normal course are not expected until April/May, and looking at the patterns over the last two years, we can't expect the rains to save us. Even if we do look forward to a heavier-than-average rainfall, Cape Town simply can't last that long. Unlike the US or East Asia, the Cape isn't at the thick of things politically. The people here are mostly Mature Souls under a Baby/Young government. The country has good relations with the rest of the world. And now we're feeling the brunt of environmental changes that the world has been predicting for decades. Here's a humble request, for suggestions on ways to save water that are also cheap. I live in a student community and most of us are always broke, so we can't afford to install recycling equipment or contraptions that circle water from the shower into the toilet. We're already limiting the number of flushes to one per day per person, skipping baths every other day, and only washing clothes once a month. We're using wet wipes and recycled paper plates and wiping our dishes down before we wash them. If any of you can suggest any other measures that will help us postpone Day Zero for as long as possible, we will be very grateful.

[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: December 2007] [Question] Like so many others, we work thru life issues in dreams. Intense dreams with water….flooding. dark, raging storms or instant floods…swim through…waking up up very emotionally spent. Please explain the flooding in dreams. thank you. [Michael_Entity] It is true that one level of dreaming is for the processing of events. In many cases the universal symbols are used to work through these events, such as Water equating levels of emotions. It could be said, then, that these descriptions you lend to your symbol of water are equated with the same descriptions you would give to some obvious experiences of emotion (or fears) in your waking life. However, what tends to be even more insightful in your dreaming is your position relative to the symbol. If you are drowning, the “meaning” can be very different from if you are managing a rocking ship. It is always a more direct and accurate route of dream interpretation for the individual to write down what the symbols mean to himself or herself and then put it back into the context of the dream and assess how those symbols interact with each other and the dreamer. In general, though, water is often used by fragments to symbolize emotions, or the lower astral plane (emotional plane).
