A revealing insight into why long-standing
traditions exist of “blessing our water” before we ever consume it: Doctor Masaru Emoto became renown among hipsters after publishing results of an experiment where he used music AND written messages to check if such seemingly benign forms of communication hold energy to physically affect water and create different crystal forms according to the kind of message and music the water 'hears.'
Music was tested first and a fresh container of water was placed next to a pair of speakers before being frozen to get the kind of crystal formations. Classical
music played to a water sample resulted in well-formed crystals with
distinct characteristics. In contrast, the water exposed to violent heavy-metal
music resulted in fragmented and malformed crystals at best.
Dr. Emoto developed a technique using a very powerful microscope in a very cold room along with high-speed photography, to photograph newly formed crystals of frozen water samples.
It's the Thought that Shapes
Next thing was the messages, Doxtor Masaru Emoto wrote words or
phrases like “Thank you” and “Fool” on pieces of paper and wrapped that 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
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.
Emoto continued the study into the effects of prayer, blessings, and spoken words. Not surprisingly, his results indicated that
water crystal formation was also sensitive to ‘messages’ from
sound/music or written words.
“Molecules of water are affected by our
thoughts, words, and feelings,” says Emoto. Although all of this was brushed off by other scientists who tried to replicate the experiment via double blind testing and emotionless expectations but failed to come up with the same results, Emoto is still happy for his “research.”
Maybe a quantum theory can be had for explaining how all of this ties up with each other. Forget the lifecoach hoodoo riffing off 'The Secret.' Any 'emotive' power that ties up everything is certainly something that can be comprehended and should be more incredible than just whimsical hipster inspiration (don't you abhor life coaching).
