Lessons from Water with Dr. Masaru Emoto

gratitude love mindfulness self-talk Dec 06, 2023

Dr. Masaru Emoto in his book The Hidden Messages in Water recounts astonishing results from years of water experiments.  He froze water from different locations and photographed the ice crystals.  Different water formed different crystals.  Some water, such as tap water, formed no crystals at all.  Some crystals were beautiful, while others were deformed. 

Then Dr. Emoto expanded his study of water to include exposing it to various stimuli and photographing the results.

He placed bottles of water between two speakers and played music for the water to “listen” to.  Water exposed to classical music like Beethoven formed beautiful hexagonal crystals, while water exposed to heavy metal music was either fragmented or malformed.    

Dr. Emoto also wrote words on paper and then attached the paper to the bottle of water with the words facing the water.  The positive words (like “thank you”) had similar effects as the classical music.  The negative words (like “fool”) produced results like the heavy metal music and tap water.  The most beautiful crystals were exposed to “love” and “gratitude.”

He also showed the water photographs of various objects and places – from mountains to Stonehenge to dolphins. Dr. Emoto took before and after pictures of lake water that was prayed over.  Check out the results in his crystal photo gallery.

How is this possible?

What it boils down to is vibration.  Everything in the universe vibrates and has a frequency.  Humans vibrate and can feel the vibrations of others.  The same applies to objects and locations – even written words. The water mirrors these vibrations and transforms them into structures that we can see (the crystals).  “Good vibes” create more beautiful water structures than “bad vibes.” 

Now consider that the average human body is 60% water.  What does that water get exposed to?  What do you imagine our crystals look like?  Does our self-talk create beautiful structures or deformed ones? Since there is currently no scientific evidence that the water that forms the beautiful crystals has more health benefits than the water that produces malformed crystals, we can only speculate.  What do you think?  Which would you prefer to have in your body?

At the very least these experiments demonstrate the power of our environment and what we expose our cells to.  The words we speak, the music we listen to, the objects we surround ourselves with, the places we go have an impact on us.  The signals we send out to the world are significant.  Dr. Emoto asserted that by purifying the water in our bodies we can live happy and healthy lives.  He suggests that to change the world “we fill our lives with love and gratitude for all.”  How can we go wrong with that?
