Diving to Heal

Healing is getting to a state of wholeness and deep understanding with on your own, your partnerships and your atmosphere. Recovering always includes aspects of body, mind as well as spirit. Our bodies are comprised largely of water. The planet is primarily water and also the majority of that is sea water. In his books regarding the miraculous intelligence of water, Dr.Masuru Emoto describes exactly how water alters it’s crystallized form relying on how it is sent thought, audio and also speech energy. All our ideas are power and if we and our planet are water then our type is transformed considerably by just how we talk, think and also engage with ourselves, our fellow men and also our planet.

Diving is one of one of the most straight techniques of communicating with water and feeling yourself to be a water based life form. Breathing undersea has captivated humans for centuries and checking out the oceans is as amazing as checking out celestial spaces as well as has produced much current rate of interest in documentary films as well as pop culture. The diving recreational sector has exploded in the previous years encouraging many of us to directly look beneath the surface of our watery planet.

Diving as a sport has the possible to reveal people just how beautiful and essential our seas, coral reefs and marine atmosphere are. Nonetheless, as with much of the popularization of any activity, cash and it’s quest dominates the scuba diving training as well as dive facilities around the world and typically eliminates the element of recovery from diving. The supremacy of commerce in diving similar to all human endeavors turns a possibly recovery activity for people as well as a means to further understanding of our world to an activity of mass usage as well as damage of the very wonderful we are so excited to see and also experience.

After 15 years of diving in the Red Sea and more than one decade of mentor Diving full-time I am seeking ways to urge the market to innovate and also look to the future of diving and our blue planet. I ask myself daily, just how can I get people in the dive market to recognize that the means they are diving is harmful to the reef environment? I ask exactly how can I develop options in this market or should I abandon it altogether?

5 years ago I started explore combining yoga komodo day trip exercise breathing as well as reflection strategies with diving in order to improve this recovery impact of the sea as well as to instruct individuals to diving in a much more eco pleasant and respectful method. This course which I called “yoga diving” for lack of a better term, has actually slowly gotten some interest from dive magazines and so forth. I haven’t nevertheless been able yet to locate a method “in” to the dive industry itself and urge substantial notification and also ideally modification. I compare the modification I would certainly encourage to exactly how the health food/organic foods market has changed a great deal of the food and farming industry in recent times. Educated people nowadays generally consider problems like pesticides in food, just how industrial farming damages the atmosphere, chemicals in food etc. As our earth is a lot more water than planet and as the pureness of water amounts our health and survival I am thinking of methods to advertise all natural, ecologically sound consciousness in diving in a comparable way to just how organic farming urges the exact same with the planet.

Diving has constantly been a reflection for me and also most knowledgeable scuba divers will say the very same. Drifting weightless in the sea, seeing fish and also corals up close and also totally, the slow-moving, balanced manner of breathing in scuba, all these bring a sense of stillness and tranquility to the diver. Nevertheless the way diving is primarily carried out by the visitor market, that feeling of peace and consistency with our marine globe is appropriated by rushed, group oriented, money based surface dive training to get as several scuba divers on the reef as rapidly as possible. The safety and security of the divers and also even more importantly the effect these inadequately trained divers on the fragile reefs is backseated to “manufacturing facility diving” and also mass advertising. Like convenience food and most of commericialized society, revenue inspires the dive facilities, paradoxically usually run by ex divers that used to link to the tranquility of the dive experience defined over.

How can the dive market make modifications to motivate understanding and healing of ourselves and also our blue earth? Similar to all recovery, health of body, mind as well as spirit should be considered in the quest for balance. Moderation, sound ecological development certainly are international issues as the dive market is embedded in the larger range of “tourist” both are completely linked as well as healing hence a lot more complex than changing simply the way we dive.

Nevertheless those people that dive either properly or as a leisure activity can facilitate, sensible changes now. Dive centers can make their teams smaller sized with greater supervision by skilled dive experts. Huge groups of vacation divers on a coral reef are like squadrons of bulldozers over a beautiful flower yard. These potentially devastating teams of divers ruin the coral reefs very typically irreparably. Longer, more thoughtful training targeted at training divers correct abilities and buoyancy in smaller sized teams (3 scuba divers to a pro preferably as an example) would enable scuba divers to dive more secure on their own and for the reef. In my training course we start our diving day with gentle yoga exercise as well as reflection to boost the ability to discover as well as to open up to the intelligence of the sea. In contrast most dive facilities highlight goal oriented, vanity based dive attic rooms underwater. Most of the scuba divers who join my course do so because of discontentment with the method the dive centers are run. Alternatives to factory diving and also to the energy of anxiety and also exploitation of nature (constantly wanting even more and also worry of not making enough cash) are rare in diving although there are people that enjoy nature and also the sea and are genuinely concerned. These rare individuals in the dive market do not nonetheless, have places to advertise their love of the sea. Dive facilities are out for profit first and their short term objectives are again, ironically, damaging the basis for their “sector” particularly, the elegance of nature.

The recovery power of the sea is unrestricted. The healing power within each people is unrestricted. We do not require to follow “market” as if it’s the only choice. Specialist scuba divers who enjoy the reefs and also would love to utilize diving to heal let’s get up, assume globally as well as act in your area in your own dive facility! Leisure scuba divers, question methods of your dive facility, take obligation for your training and also really feel the one-of-a-kind, privileged area your are in to experience the recovery of our seas.
