Isolt's Enchantment & Holy Water

One day she gave birth to a daughter, beautiful, vivacious and flowing. Una said, “I shall name you Isolt of the Waters, for you have brought with you all the springs, rivers, lakes, and oceans.” — Isolt's Enchantment

Water—from its supernatural qualities, especially potent in the enchanted world's Great White Sea, to its source of energy, inspiration, and wisdom throughout Melia's journey—serves as the passageway between the enchanted and mortal worlds and is a significant actor in Daughter of Light cosmology,

It's curious that, even today, water's unique qualities cannot be explained by quantum mechanics. Probablitity waves, definite states, pilot waves, quantum coherence, tunneling ... no one's figured out water's quantum magic. But we do know:

-- every organism we know of needs water to survive. In fact, without water, life on Earth would have never begun. 

So we'll begin our journey today with an ode to Isolt of the Water's dark enchantment, Holy Water by Big & Rich.
Lyrics:

Somewhere there's a stolen halo,
I used to watch her wear it well.
Everything would shine wherever she would go,
But looking at her now you'd never tell.
Someone ran away with her innocence
A memory she can't get out of her head.
I can only imagine what she's feeling
When she's praying kneeling at the edge of her bed.

And she says
“Take me away,
Then take me farther,
Surround me now,
And hold, hold, hold me like Holy Water.
Holy water.”

She wants someone to call her angel,
Someone to put the light back in her eyes.
She's looking through the faces and unfamiliar places.
She needs someone to hear her when she cries.

And she says
“Take me away,
Then take me farther,
Surround me now
And hold, hold, hold me like Holy Water.

She just needs a little help
To wash away the pain she's felt.
She wants to feel the healing hands
Of someone who understands.

And she says
“Take me away,
Take me farther,
Surround me now,
And hold, hold, hold me,

She says:
“Take me away
Then take me farther,
Surround me now,
And hold, hold, hold me like Holy Water.
Like Holy Water,
Like Holy Water,
Like Holy Water.”
Isolt of the Waters is an ancient water elemental whose betrayal and enchantment has forever changed the Whole.
