We Have One Word For You: Water

In Mike Nichols’s 1967 film “The Graduate,” a 21 year old Benjamin Braddock, played by Dustin Hoffman, is at a cocktail party his parents have thrown to celebrate his college graduation.  A friend of Ben’s parents, a businessman named Mr. McGuire, takes Ben aside at the party and says he has one word of advice for him, just one word—and the word is “plastics.”

In 1967, plastic was about to revolutionize the world but today it has created one of the major problems our planet faces.  Without getting into the complex issues that have been brought about because of plastics (save for another blog), we do want to present the power of having simple answers in a complex world.  Our answer to the future of health and well being is “Water.”

The next time you are on an airplane, take a look at the people who are in first class (not that I would not enjoy sitting there from time to time), but the group is usually made up of business people who have earned the right to sit there, not from paying extra, but from living a life of flying around the country on business … frequent flyers!  They are usually haggard executives who are thankful to have been seated first so that they can enjoy a glass of alcohol and a bag of chips, all given to them free of charge.  That is a reward?  Sounds more like a poisoning.

These people, despite their apparent financial success, can understandably find themselves confiding in friends saying, “I wish I had more energy and felt better.”  If I were their friend I would say “Water … start not just any water, but rare, healing water that can only be obtained from a pure source … a place like Pocahontas Spring at Boston Clear.  Don’t take our word for it, listen to people who make a career out of healing people.

Jody Hawkins operates Full Circle Health Counseling where she is a Certified Holistic Health and Nutrition coach.  Testimonials on her website speak to her work and one of her blogs speaks to our spring!  Not only did Hawkins find water, she discovered a healing spring here in Lynnfield where she takes her family;

Finding this spring and sacred healing spot, has been life changing for us. It came into our lives at exactly the right time, as most things do, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the benefits I have seen.

Another professional who comes to our spring is Regina Schulman.  Schulman and Tim DeSutter founded  The Infinity Healing Group in Andover, MA.  Our water has been a part of their work for years, including Schulman’s volunteer work with women who were trying to overcome sexual and drug abuse issues.  “When I was doing some volunteer work,” Schulman said, “the center that was housing these women served soda and chip, which were mostly donated goods.”  She said that the joke among the women was that the place was known as 30-30, “If you went for 30 days, you gained 30 pounds.”  The fact is that Schulman was trying to change the lives of these women and help them to clear their mind so that they could make a positive change.  She needed to get them away from things that were destroying their lives and that included the food they were eating.

Schulman changed one thing within her group and issued a challenge; substitute one soda with one. water.  They sat at a table with a gallon of our Pocahontas water, poured some into glasses and talked about the water, what it meant to them and what it was doing to heal their bodies.  While nourishing their bodies, the group used Shulman’s encouragement to focus on other, more complex issues … “The water provided a focus for these women so that they could address other issues in their lives.

How powerful has Schulman’s work been?  Take a look at this testimonial filmed at our spring (click here).

We would like to thank the professional nutritionists, faith healers and physicians who visit our spring on behalf of their clients.  We welcome you and we welcome them.

If someone asks you what is the one thing they can do to improve their life, tell them “water.”  Not water bottled in some factory, wrapped in plastic and shipped to your local grocer, but water that is delivered from the center of the earth as a gift for those who seek to find it.

 

 

The Growing Water Crisis Around Us

We know that you bring your containers to our spring searching for a trusted source of clean water.  For now, it is mostly a secret that visitors have started to share among their friends and families.  By sharing these stories, people learn of the nourishment that our spring provides but we also hear the stories from those who have searched for clean water like ours.  We encourage you to share those stories with as many people as possible.

In the future, sites like ours will become more sought after as local water departments are unable to fix the problems of treating the unwanted chemicals in our drinking supply by dumping even more chemicals to remedy it.  It is a fruitless effort that is wrought with even more harm to our citizens.  Water, the control of water, is going to reach a crisis level here in the U.S. within our lifetime.  All the warning signs are there.

The legal war between Georgia and Florida has been going on for years.  Georgia, whose growth around Atlanta led to the damming of the Chattahoochee River to form Lake Lanier as a drinking reservoir, has been a source of legal action for years.  Florida claims that the river once supplied fresh water to its residents and was necessary for to support oyster (and other wildlife) along the Florida coast.  The Supreme Court ruled that Georgia needed to prove that it could continue to hold back the water, signaling that Florida could end up getting more water flow … they the issue becomes, what about Georgia?  Yet another water crisis that has already cost both states over $100 million in just legal battles!

Here is the water situation closer to home:

Norton, MA – The city had such bad water last year that they also made the news for brown and smelly water coming from the tap.  The solution was patience while a new water plant was being built … completions was scheduled for summer 2019 but delays and cost overruns have put it behind schedule.

Scituate, MA – The water in Scituate, down on the Cape, has a reputation for having bad water flowing from the top.  However, today’s water quality has become so bad that the water has both an offensive color and smell.  Upset, concerned and angry citizens filled a town hall to let Scituate town officials have a piece of their mind.  After a five year project to clean up the water, residents went to a town hall meeting to demonstrate that they are frustrated.  According to reports here on Boston 10 (NBC), residents who even installed filter systems could not keep up with the amount of pipe sediment flowing into their homes.  Some residents bagged their filters from home and showed that were so filled with debris that they were rendered useless after just a few days of use.  Citizens were assured that by next year, the final patches to the water improvement program will be complete and they can begin an extensive flushing program.

Since our bodies are over 90% water, make a choice to put only the finest water into your body.  That water comes from natural sources, rich in earth’s minerals, just like the one at our Pocahontas spring.

Many people who come to our spring travel from miles away to fill their containers … some travel for over an hour.  Keep coming and encourage your friends in Norton and Scituate to visit us to get a taste of what pure water from the earth tastes like.

Set your GPS to 165 Lowell Street, Lynnfield, MA 01940.  Bring your family, those who are sick, those seeking peace and those who are thirsty for water that is pure.  All are welcome.

More Work To Do !

We want to thank you for all of the support you have shown us over the years, especially over the past week as we went before the Lynnfield Board of Appeals.

While we presented our case and were allowed a fair hearing, the ZBA postponed a decision on our spring until a future date (September, October, or later).  They allowed us sufficient time to present our case and a few of the neighbors provided their opposition.

If one thing was made clear by this hearing is that we need more tolerance and understanding in the world.  It is our belief that the spring provides a hate-free place where people are brought together for a common cause of nutrition and spirituality.  We will keep you posted on things but until then, let’s keep the dialogue going on something that is most important to all of us … water!

We heard from you and the Lynnfield ZBA heard from you.  THANK YOU!  We know how much you love the spring and are especially happy to share some of the posts that we received.  Here is one and please keep them coming:

Dear folks at Boston Clear Water or Pocahontas Spring,

I have been going to this beautiful mineral spring for a few years now and am so grateful that this water has been open to all of us who value fresh and live mineral spring water. This is a rare opportunity! I travel 40 minutes as often as I need to get this water and it is the only water I drink… I have sent many people to the spring who also travel far and wide to get this delicious spring water. Many people feel that this water has improved their health as do I. Beyond being able to get this water to drink, this spring has been a refuge, a beautiful place to go and sit in nature for me. Nestled in this residential neighborhood it is like a surprise retreat place.
I do not understand how this could be closed down and not available to the public! The owners have been so generous in making this available to all. They are certainly not making money there but out of generosity of spirit they make it available because they understand how important good fresh clean water is to those who are interested in health!
Please don’t even consider closing this incredible resource to those of us who value and take advantage of this special water and serene place.
Thank you,
Kailia S.
Kailia, we hear you and we are staying !!!
Keep these stories coming and we are happy to share them.

The Lynnfield ZBA Meeting Is Tonight, Honoring Our Customers

Tonight is the Lynnfield Zoning Board of Appeals meeting regarding our spring and, more importantly, your ability to come to it for water.  While we intend to honor our spring by working to share it with all of you, we are there to honor your rights to come to our spring for its healing waters.

A few people have spoken out to restrict this site and that means a lot more people have to speak out about keeping the spring open.  We are confident in our ability to overcome these obstacles and in doing so have rediscovered our purpose in serving many of you.

As a result of the many letters and input that we have received, we are going to start a series of posts on the people who visit our spring.  We find many of your stories inspirational and visitors to our spring represent a special community of people who are committed to the movement of clean water.

Here is one of the letters we recently received in support of our spring that was also sent to the Zoning Board of Appeals (the author was kind enough to share the letter):

Dear Lynnfield Zoning Board,

Many years ago a good friend of mine told me about Pocahontas Spring in Lynnfield.  He explained the amazing taste, high quality and health benefits. Knowing that this person practices a healthy lifestyle and in his quest to be healthy to find the perfect water, he researched many different types of water and what is the best for our bodies; I buried it in the back of my mind knowing that one day this information would be of use to me.

About a year ago I decided to give it a try.  The water is so fresh and crisp it is like drinking water that flows from a glacier!  I was immediately addicted! For many years my liver was sluggish from all of the toxins and metals from tap and bottled water. My liver now feels great and I have lost 30 lbs.  I also believe that drinking from plastic water bottles is very toxic to our bodies and not very good for our earth.  I can’t even imagine how many plastic bottles are in our dumps and in our oceans!

Every week I drive to Lynnfield with 8 glass gallon jugs, and fill them and return

home to enjoy this wonderful water all week with my family of three and 2 cats.

I have tried to find another Spring similar to this in Florida where I will eventually live part-time.  It just does not exist!  We are so very, very lucky to have this Spring in Lynnfield. Honestly it is helping a lot of people for many health reasons.  When I fill my jugs, I am usually the only one there the property is so quiet and peaceful. I also take a peek at the Spring in the back and say thanks for this delicious and hydrating water.  This is a precious gift from nature to us, please allow the Spring to remain open.

The Spring Hears You, Let Lynnfield ZBA Hear You Now

There are feelings that motivate us into action, one of those is love.  We are extremely thankful for the outpouring of support to protect the water that flows from deep in the earth to this sacred spring in Lynnfield.

Springs have provided life, hope and joy around the world.  Our spring is no exception and we appreciate everyone of you who have taken the time to visit us.  We know that people not only come to fill their containers with our mineral water, but most take time to visit our peaceful pools.  This link between water and spirit is what makes our spring so special.
As you know from our previous blog, we asked you to reach out to the Lynnfield Zoning Board of Appeals to let them know how you feel about the spring.  While we have a team to represent us at the upcoming meeting, it is your support that secures our future.  The ZBA has heard from you and WE continue to hear from you.  Here are a few of our favorites:
My wife and I live in Bedford and we discovered this beautiful source of clean natural spring water only recently.  My wife has been struggling with serious health problems for a very long time.  She has numerous allergies and has bad reactions to many things that the rest of us take for granted and do not think twice about.  Water has always been something of a struggle for her, since the chlorine and other additives in municipal tap water have bothered her stomach.
 
I found the Boston Clear Water Company online and I took her to the spring to fill some containers.  She loved the water and the look of happiness on her face when she could drink it without her stomach becoming upset was something I will never forget.  We recently found out about the issues that the Boston Clear Water Company is facing with their abutters.  We are afraid that this amazing and historical spring will be shut down and no one will be able to benefit from the water again, including my sick wife.
 
I would like to respectfully request that the Lynnfield ZBA consider how important this water is to people like my wife and to find a solution to allow us all to continue to enjoy it for years to come.  I know that as a new customer, I would gladly pay more in order to continue to get this water.

I have very fond memories of visiting that spring as a child with my father,  who has now passed. Closing the spring to the public would be such a heartbreaking travesty. The spring provides a connection for everyone to nature that is increasingly scarce in our busy industrial and computer driven world. For many of us it  also provides a closer connection to family. I can’t imagine why anyone would want to shut down such a beautiful natural blessing. Please don’t allow this to occur.

My friends have come to the spring for years.  I am writing on their behalf.  I have come once and sensed the healing properties of the water and the place.  Please Boston Clear Water open for the public.  It is too precious not to be.
– Maria C.
Keep those comments coming as we are happy to post them here.   Your voice is making a difference so let the Lynnfield ZBA know how you feel.   We plan on letting them know how we feel !!!
In the meantime, we will get back to work bringing you the finest water in the universe.

Keeping Our Spring Open To The Public

At Boston Clear, we let the water do all the talking … well the water is talking these days!

Our spring was recently featured in the Lynnfield Weekly News about legal issues we have as a result of some people who are seeking to shut down our the spring.  Rest assured, we have a team of dedicated professionals who represent both our and your interest in preserving this amazing place.  We thought the article was fair and we were glad to hear a satisfied customer being quoted as saying, “The water is so good, it’s like a fine glass of wine.”  We could not agree more!

We are fortunate to have so many wonderful people who come to our spring, for water, to meditate, or just out of curiosity.  No matter their reasons, we welcome everyone and offer a place of refuge, hope and nourishment.  However, a very small group of people have chosen to challenge our right to serve you and your right to come to our spring.  We are confident that we will prevail because the basis for our defense is based on truth where opponents of the spring have theirs founded in deception.

Some of the same people who are now trying to stop your access to the spring, are taking water from it.  While their true motives remain hidden, we believe, based on their complaints, they are intolerant of certain religious and spiritual beliefs that are freely displayed on our site.  It is truly sad because we have welcomed everyone, no matter their beliefs, race or gender …. All are welcome.

We use this platform to communicate with those we serve and we welcome your comments.  Your support is critical to our success and will play an important role in the decisions city officials in Lynnfield make concerning our spring.  There is a Zoning Board of Appeals meeting on Tuesday, August 7 at 7:30pm where issues concerning the spring will be discussed.  You can reach out to board members by clicking on their name sending them a note about

  • Why you come to the spring
  • How long you have been coming (whether you are a first timer or been coming for years)
  • Why it is important that it remain openLet the board members know how you feel (click here to go to ZBA website) or email us at aqua@bostonclearwater.com. … we would love to hear from you and will gladly pass on your comments at the Lynnfield ZBA.Enjoy our water and look for updated posts.

4 Million Americans Could Be Drinking Toxic Water and Would Never Know

RANGER, Texas — The leaders of this former oil boomtown never gave 2-year-old Adam Walton a chance to avoid the poison.

It came in city water, delivered to his family’s tap through pipes nearly a century old. For almost a year, the little boy bathed in lead-tainted water and ate food cooked in it. As he grew into a toddler — when he should have been learning to talk — he drank tap water containing a toxin known to ravage a child’s developing brain.

Adam’s parents didn’t know about the danger until this fall.

The Source Mission

The Source Mission has begun. The healing, living mineral water of the Pocahontas Mineral Spring flows from deep within the Earth, down into the Ipswich River and to the Atlantic Ocean. Water is the most nurturing of all the elements. We turn to water when we need comfort. There is no life without water. Water feels safe to us — for it was water that first held us in the womb. Next to the air we breathe, water is the most important thing we will ever put in our bodies. It is surprising that little attention is given to the quality and effect of the water that we consume. Most is chlorinated, bottled or filtered tap water, not a living high-alkaline mineral spring water. The Creator has given us this Source that we must protect and steward.

The Native Americans have shown us that the Sacred Source holds many powers, for it was their ancestors that lived on this site over 400 years ago until their interaction with the English and that the land they “owned” was no longer their land. Native Americans who long ago traveled over this landscape that we call today “our” front yard and backyard, and along “our” rivers, and through “our” forests. Much of “our” land could be considered “hallowed ground.” Their way of life revolved around The Source for their existence and healing of their infants. This sacred property sits on the vortex of one of the most powerful ley lines and is considered a mother source of ancient old water from the creation of the earth. With much respect to Mother Earth and the Creator, it is The Source Mission to bring back and give back what it has given us.
