The Scientist who explored the effects of consciousness on water - Masaru Emoto
“Water has a memory and carries within it our thoughts and prayers. As you yourself are water, no matter where you are, your prayers will be carried to the rest of the world.” – Masaru Emoto
Dr. Masaru Emoto was a Japanese scientist and author who explored the effects of human consciousness on the molecular structure of water. His early work involved testing the influence of thoughts, prayers, and intentions on water. For over two decades – until his death in 2014 – Dr. Emoto spent his time perfecting his theory and scientifically proving what he knew was the truth from the very beginning.
The Messages in Water
There are some who say – with full conviction – that our emotions as well as our conscious and sub-conscious mind can alter the outcomes of the physical realm. Perhaps this is the reason Dr. Emoto’s book – The Hidden Messages in Water – was received with open arms.
“Words are the vibrations of nature. Therefore, beautiful words create beautiful nature. Ugly words create ugly nature. This is the root of the universe” – Masaru Emoto
The New York Times Bestselling book recounts the Japanese scientist’s extraordinary work with water. Dr. Emoto used high-speed photography and Magnetic Resonance Analysis technology to capture the changes in the molecular structure of water when different sounds, emotions and environments and presented.
Dr. Emoto found that positive words, loving thoughts, pleasing sounds, and prayers when directed at water resulted in the formation of water crystals with molecular structures that were beautiful and symmetrical.
Using the same method, he then showed the opposite – the use of unpleasant sounds, harsh words, and thoughts charged with emotions like fear, anger, and disgust resulted in crystal molecules that were disfigured, ugly and twisted out of shape.
The Prayer Ceremony at Fujiwara Dam
“Understanding that water exists as a solid, a liquid, a vapor, as a molecule, and at some point as light is to also understand our own nature and possibilities because we are mostly made of water. After I realised that we are water I came to realise that we do not have death; we only change into higher vibrations of being. This is an irreplaceable finding for me personally.” – Masaru Emoto
A prayer ceremony was conducted by the chief priest of Jyuhouin Temple, Reverend Kato Hoki, on the Fujiwara Dam. The molecular structure of the water crystals from Fujiwara dam was photographed both before and after the ceremony.
Dr. Emoto showed that unclean water with unpleasant and deformed crystals, changed into healthy water with perfect crystalline structures, which were symmetrical and pleasant when subjected to positive intentions and prayers.
The Effect of Sound on Water
Just like the experiments that studied the effect of emotions and words on plants, Dr. Emoto believed music would also influence water. His music investigations involved exposing water samples to classical and heavy metal music.
The findings of Dr. Emoto’s music experiments validated his work on the relationship between consciousness and water. He first subjected water samples to Mozart’s classical work; the immensely famous Symphony no. 40. He then played heavy metal music and captured its effect on water samples. While the heavy metal music produced disfigured crystals; Symphony no. 40 resulted in beautiful crystals.
A Pioneer like No Other
Dr. Emoto’s work was certainly one of the most interesting finds of current times, however he faced great criticism from some members of the scientific community. At times his work has been labelled as unscientific due to a lack of clinical trials.
Human consciousness and water are two parallel yet separate derivatives of nature. The scientific world thought these two, to be two parallel lines of a railway track, both hugely important for mankind; never would they coincide at any point. Dr. Masaru Emoto aimed to prove to the scientific community and the world at large, that consciousness is a part of reality that is dynamic and temporal.
“I believe my research validates the idea that water hold and transmits information. I believe that the more we properly understand water, the more we can expand our consciousness into other dimensions. For me personally, this validation has been invaluable because to be honest I could not sense the invisible world through my own sensibilities. When people would speak of the inner world of our psychology, I would wonder if that was even possible. But through this validation, seeing how our thoughts affect water, I no longer doubt this.” – Masaru Emoto
