“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” ~Albert Einstein
Have you heard of Dr. Emoto? He’s been all over social media and consciousness documentaries like What the *Bleep* do We Know? If you haven’t heard of him yet, or still want to hear more, then this is your Dr. Emoto primer. First of all, can I congratulate you on your name, Dr. Emoto. Are emoticons named after you? For a man who has determined that inanimate objects respond to emotion your name (in our ethnocentric western world) is just perfect.
First a little on the inimitable Doctor. Masuru Emoto is a Japanese man who started out with a degree in International Relations then studied Natural Medicine in India. I haven’t read his book, The Hidden Messages in Water, so I don’t know why he started his study of the effect that outside abstract influences have on water. In his study he used high-speed photography to take pictures of water that was frozen after having been subjected to written words, typed words, music, intentional emotions, and concepts like peace and anger. How can a word taped to the outside of a glass container of water make a difference in how the water inside behaves?
In quantum mechanics it has been shown that objects, like electrons, will act differently when being observed. The observer influences the actions of the observed. That’s pretty amazing when you think about it. Dr. Masuru Emoto has taken that observation to water. First, he studied water from different sources and found strong differences in how they formed crystals when frozen. Some water, from polluted sources were unable to form crystals. Now this all makes perfect sense to me. There were probably pollutants in the water that inhibited crystal formation. It’s what he did next that didn’t make sense in the scientific way.
He took two samples from the same source of water and exposed them to music. The water exposed to the beautiful music formed a lovely crystal. The water exposed to heavy metal music did not. It was unable to form the typical hexagonal crystal of water. We’ve all heard of the experiments in which plants were subjected to various types of music and how they responded, so this, too, is not beyond our ken.
So, he continued to expand his research. Next he tried using written words to influence the crystallization of the water. this stretches the scope of our belief systems. How can written words affect water. He had containers of water from the same source and he attached different words to each container. There were quite dramatic results.
He used prayer on water.
Dr Emoto tried many different way to influence water, from music, to written words, to thoughts and prayers and his results showed that there was a direct influence on the water. It gives a whole new meaning to saying grace before meals.
And you know, the science community is calling it a lot of hooey. And there are no experiments done by any others to corroborate, but I believe it. Because I know that what we think and do affects everything in our lives. So, call me crazy, but my Brita water pitcher has a peace sign and a heart and a smiley face on it. I try to remember to realize that all my food is perfect for me. I infuse love into my life and what goes into my body.
Is it real science, what Dr. Emoto does? I don’t know. I don’t care. I just know about the transformational power of energy. I know that the consciousness we focus on an object changes it. I know that thoughts become things and that what we focus on is what our life becomes. So, I’m going to focus on the positive and go from there. I’m going to put some Mozart on for my water now.
- I know that my thoughts affect my life.
- I use positive feelings and thoughts to improve my life and others.
- I feel love, gratitude, and kindness towards myself and others.
- I forgive myself and others.
- I encourage myself on the path that brings me delight.
- I see the best in people.
Before you eat or drink, infuse your food with love, gratitude, and perfection. You are what you eat.
