What is the spiritual significance of water from the seven rivers?

The seven rivers referred to here are, the Ganga, Yamuna, Godavari, Saraswati, Narmada, Sindhu, and Kaveri. Water collected from these seven rivers is put in the ritualistic pot, which is used during ritualistic worship. 'Water from the seven rivers has the ability to attract and transmit the frequencies of seven superior Deities. (Deity Shiva, ShrīrāmShrīkrushna, Deity Māruti, Shree Ganapati, Deity Datta and Shrī Durgādēvī). India is known as the most Sattva predominant place on the face of earth because all these seven rivers flow only through it. Many yogis have undertaken penance on the banks of these rivers so as to acquire the principles of the seven superior Deities in the universe. This water from the ritualistic pot is used for the consecration of the idol of the Deity by sprinkling on it (abhishēk). The subtle sound frequencies from the ritualistic pot absorb the frequencies of the seven superior Deities in the water and effectively transmit them into the atmosphere. Since these subtle sound frequencies have a higher speed and expanse, the effectiveness of the frequencies of the seven Deities transmitted into the atmosphere through the water of the seven rivers remains in the environment for longer periods. Since these frequencies are transmitted with the help of the particles of the absolute water element in the water and the particles of the absolute ether element from the sound frequencies in the ritualistic pot, this water can be used as Holy water (tīrtha). If consumed with spiritual emotion and devotion, then due to the Divine frequencies in this Holy water the dormant five vital energies surrounding the navel in the body of the devotee are activated. With the help of these vital energies these Divine frequencies spread all over the body of the devotee. As a result purification of the vital energy body and its sheath of the embodied soul (worshipper) occurs and the devotee derives Sattva predominant happiness and enthusiasm from it.
