if all of us: individuals, priests, ministers, rabbis, gurus, healers, poets, and people of all faiths would turn our thinking away from rage and distress over the apparent problem in the ocean and literally, prayerfully send the energy of loving-kindness to the water, holding her in our thought in Light and claiming her wholeness by the power of All that is Holy, we could, on this physical plane, by the focus of our thought, change the chemical make-up of each crystal of water and help the ocean clean itself up. Even better, if we gathered at her shores from all around the world en masse in this effort, we would make an even bigger impact toward her healing.
