It is a ‘special water’ and a very interesting matter, as it is characterized, or rather impregnated, by celestial influences, by subtle qualities within and by the frequency condition of calm, peace, quiet, silence, conciliation and meditation, which affect the Earth’s atmosphere during the night time and the dark phase. We commonly associate this time period, this phase of the day, with the human unconscious; therefore with a state of interiority and introversion. Moreover also with the ‘collective unconscious’.
Even before the modern scientific studies on the memory of water, the ancients were aware and they knew about the singular characteristic that water has of recording and gathering within itself the electro-magnetic fields, energies, frequencies and information of the forms or materials with which it comes into contact. In fact, we can say that water has a huge dynamic memory capacity. It very easily acquires every emanation of the electromagnetic fields with which it comes into contact, those that usually or commonly we call as energies. And so, with so much ease, it makes the accumulated memories and information available.
As the ancient alchemists said: “The VEHICLE of that volatile and subtle energetical nature’s essence, is water; the fluid and feminine nature. It reaches us at night in the form of CELESTIAL DEW, gently dissolved in the air we breathe..”
An ancient book of Alchemy cites the following:
“When the water has risen from the earth, it has been deprived of the various ferments of which it has been filled for the different generations that have been made, through it, inside and above the earth. It falls back to earth itself through the air, where it supplies itself with pure Spirit, which is undifferentiated, to do all things.”
Dew, then, slowly crystallizing and coagulating during the night on a specific flower/plant, naturally acquires its subtle qualities, its energies, its frequencies and electro-magnetic properties. The moment of greatest presence of this quality, occurs throughout the night, up to the Aurora (down, twilight), which the alchemists anagram in: AU – ROS (RORIS); that is, ‘GOLDEN DEW’.
This is why Dew brings with itself distinct attributes and properties that balance and harmonize human interiority. Analogically, it is pregnant with nocturnal qualities, and represents a condensation of the nocturnal archetype, linked to the Moon, the Feminine, the unconscious, to the subtle and sensitive qualities, to the conciliatory, meditative, reflexive, insight and introspective attributes, to which it is linked the night phase/time.
