Holy Wells, Healing Springs & Spas

When water first emerges at ground-level and comes out of the Earth, such spots are simply known as ‘springs’ of water. At sites where people have placed stone troughs or basins they are known as ‘wells.’ Water was of primal importance to our ancestors, not only as the vital source of life nourishment, but also as sources of spiritual nourishment. Anyone who’s spent a lotta time in the hills, alone, will understand this – and our ancestors knew this much more than any of us wandering modern-folk! Indeed in every culture on Earth, until very recently, water was of the utmost importance – but in the ‘civilized’ world things have gone a bit backward, as water is now treated simply as a ‘market commodity’: a belief system held by only the most retarded of folk.  Many springs and wells possess healing and therapeutic properties, as shown by chemical analyses (mainly in Victorian times, when a craze on these wells was in vogue), as well as folk traditions. To ancient societies and all normal people, water is our blood, the very blood of the Earth.
