The Hidden Messages in Water

Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, Jul 5, 2011 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 200 pages
In this New York Times bestseller, internationally renowned Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto shows how the influence of our thoughts, words and feelings on molecules of water can positively impact the earth and our personal health.

This book has the potential to profoundly transform your world view. Using high-speed photography, 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.

I thought this book was amazing and definitely should be read by all! It made me see the world in a new light. We do really make an impact on our world in positive and negative ways and if we all were able to see it we could start healing it starting with water. Read full review

Page xxv - I had so far seen — formed by being exposed to the words "love and gratitude." It was as if the water had rejoiced and celebrated by creating a flower in bloom. It was so beautiful that I can say that it actually changed my life from that moment on.
Page xxiii - We next thought about what would happen if we wrote words or phrases like "Thank you" and "Fool" on pieces of paper, and wrapped the paper around the bottles of water with the words facing in. It didn't seem logical for water to "read" the writing, understand the meaning, and change its form accordingly.
Page xxiv - The results of the experiments didn't disappoint us. Water exposed to "Thank you" formed beautiful hexagonal crystals, but water exposed to the word "Fool" produced crystals similar to the water exposed to heavy-metal music, malformed and fragmented. Further experimenting showed that water exposed to positive expressions like "Let's do it!
Page xxiv - Let's do it!" created attractive, well-formed crystals, but that water exposed to negative expressions like "Do it!" barely formed any crystals at all. The lesson that we can learn from this experiment has to do with the power of words. The vibration of good words has a positive effect on our world, whereas the vibration from negative words has the power to destroy.
