Life without water is no life and without water nothing can live. Water plays in an important role in our daily rituals. We clean ourselves with it, immerse ourselves in its warmth when we take a relaxing bath, drink from it and live of it. And we may not realize it but according to the late Dr. Masaru Emoto – who was a Japanese author, international researcher and entrepreneur- water is highly sensitive to all forms of energy. He even went as far as to say that he believed that the human consciousness can have an effect on its structure. Quite a fascinating idea indeed.
Water is unique
Like snowflakes, not one is identical under a microscope, each frozen water crystal has it own unique fingerprint. Dr.Emoto stated that emotional energies and vibrations have the power to change the physical structure of water and he devoted over 20 years of his life to finding scientific proof for this phenomenon. He therefore executed specific water crystal experiments from which he learned that not all water forms beautiful crystals when frozen.
The beauty of natural water
He tested tap water from around the world and came to the conclusion that tap water does not form water crystals. And neither does stagnant or polluted water. Instead these form ugly and deformed frozen structures. On the other hand rainwater, water from clean streams and rivers, glacier water, and water from holy places around the world apparently form beautiful crystals after being frozen. After this first realization that pollution has an effect on the visual beauty of an ice crystal the researcher decided to find out if other external stimuli could have an effect on the water as well. Emoto exposed water in glasses to a variety of words, pictures or music. He then froze and examined the characteristic properties of the resulting crystals with microscopic photography. Emoto claimed that his experiments confirmed that water exposed to positive speech and thoughts would result into a visually pleasing formation of ice crystals, and that negative actions would yield unattractive frozen crystal patterns. Words like Thank You and I Love You made lovely intricate combinations while You are a fool or You make me sick or even the word Hate alone would impact its visual beauty considerably. Playing pleasing or classical music in the presence of tap water influenced the creation of frozen crystal formations; they became beautiful. He even went as far as to say that sending prayers to water – even located thousands of miles away- by sending it beautiful thoughts changed the qualities of the later to form ice crystals considerably.
The ideas and philosophy of dr. Emoto have never found approval within the scientific world. Many find his findings controversial, his way of working not scientific and therefore the question of its validity remains unanswered. But there must be some truth to the power of energy. For example we know from personal experience that plain tap water that has been soaking up the energy of mountain crystals for 24 hours, really does taste softer and better. Why that is? The energy from the crystals is the explanation (you have to load them up in the moon- or sunlight, we read somewhere) And although we can’t see or touch that kind of energy we often subconscious can feel it. Think of the people that can lift you up to great heights simply with their presence. Yet some people can wear you down tremendously with a forcefield of invisible negativity. So if Dr. Emoto states that the level of pollution of rivers can be affected by communal prayer, we can only hope its true because that would open up a whole world of endlessly wonderful possibilities. After all the human body consists of 60% water. Imagine what beauty and kindness will do for mankind then? But in all truth does it really matter if the experiment of Dr. Emoto can be verified? The idea that positivity boomerangs with more happiness and positivity, is a concept which we embrace with both arms. And the idea that we should be kind to our environment and everyone and everything in it, should be a basic rule of life from which the whole world can only benefit. Because imagine if thoughts can do that to water, imagine what it can do to us. Watch the video below with highlights the water experiment of Emoto in a nutshell. It is taken from the documentary what the bleep do we know, the program that propelled media attention for Emoto’s theory.
