The power of water crystals

November 2, 2015

I am fascinated by the work of Masaru Emoto, the Japanese scientist and doctor of alternative medicine, who died last year. Dr Emoto began a lifetime’s study of the molecular structure of water in the 1990s, having become intrigued by the appearance of ice crystals.

As part of his work, he took many photographs for extensive study. Dr Emoto proposed that the crystal structure of ice depended on the origin of the water it had once been. So he began exposing water, in glasses, to other stimuli – such as specific words and types of music before freezing it.

Afterwards, he learnt that water exposed to positive words such as “thank you” and “please” froze into beautiful symmetrical hexagons. Negative words such as “war” or “you idiot” led to the formation of ugly misshapen forms.

When Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake was played to the water, balanced and harmonious structures resulted. Heavy metal made the crystals small and fragile; they shattered. Dr Emoto wondered: could water retain and absorb energy?

His work resulted in a series of best-selling books of crystal photography and thoughtful comment, including Messages from Water and the Universe. Dr Emoto deduced that there is a message in water which humans might well heed, that the vibration of good words could resonate like a chant or prayer as a means of communication between man and his god or belief. He also proposed that water had the power to be the ultimate medium.

The idea that water – the element essential to life – could also be the key to unlocking life’s spiritual purpose, is one I find most enthralling. It suggests that every thought form is energy. That the thought we carry becomes the vibration we live in. Sixty per cent of our body is water which then ‘‘remembers’’ the vibration of our thoughts, positive or negative. This explains why spiritual dis-ease eventually manifests into physical disease.

Thus our intention and thoughts have a very profound impact on our wellbeing and our reality. Think happy thoughts, and pray.
