The Power of Water July 4, 2006

Sorry for the rapid postings, just felt like I’d get back on track with them. On another side note, a friend of mine has been added to this blog and I’ll leave it up to her to introduce herself when she gets around to her first post inshAllah.

So to the main subject of my post. SubhanAllah. I first learned about this in high school, but something made me think about it again. Dr. Masaru Emoto, a Japanese researcher has done a lot of research on water. You must be thinking, “Water? What can he possibly be researching? Where the Earth’s cleanest source of water is?” Well, not exactly. He basically tested water’s emotions. Now, before you think I’m getting too spacy let me explain.

The Earth is mostly made up of water. So are our bodies, correct? Well, Dr. Emoto decided that with his highly specialized equipment he would expose water to certain external factors. Now that could mean, a researcher yelling harsh words at the water, or talking sweetly to it, or different types of music being played to it. And? The water responded. Now, it’s not like that movie that has run on Comedy Central a few times (the name escapes me), in which the mysterious substance starts bubbling in anger. Actually, Dr. Emoto took pictures of the crystallization of the water and noticed that with the sweet sounds and words, the crystals were beautiful and symmetrical. With the harsh music and words, the crystal formatios were jagged.

Dr. Masaru Emoto discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns. In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors.

The implications of this research create a new awareness of how we can positively impact the earth and our personal health. The success of his books outside Japan has been remarkable. Dr. Emoto has been called to lecture around the world as a result and has conducted live experiments both in Japan and Europe as well as in the US to show how indeed our thoughts, attitudes, and emotions as humans deeply impact the environment.

It’s kind of amazing. SubhanAllah. Obviously, they note above that this research has some profound implications. If we can effect water by our thoughts and words, what can’t we effect? Nearly everything in this world is made up of water. There’s a lot to wonder about what this means in our daily lives, but I’ll leave that up to you. 🙂
