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 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.
