Dr. Masaru Emoto and Water Consciousness - Hidden Messages in Water

Water is the most sensitive medium where vibrations are visualized, showing us the vibratory essence of life.

Dr. Masaru Emoto, the Japanese scientist dedicated his life to researching the effects consciousness has on water. The results of his water research experiments illustrated how our thoughts and intentions impact the physical realm.  For over 20 years until he passed away in 2014, he studied the scientific evidence of how the molecular structure in water transforms when it is exposed to human words, thoughts, sounds and intentions.

The extraordinary life work of Dr. Emoto is documented in the New York Times Bestseller, The Hidden Messages in Water.  In his book, Dr. Emoto demonstrates how water exposed to loving, benevolent, and compassionate human intention results in beautiful geometric molecular formations in the water, while water exposed to fearful and discordant human intentions results in distorted, disfigured, and “unpleasant” physical molecular formations.  He did this through through Magnetic Resonance Analysis technology and high speed photographs.

 One of the water experiments conducted was on water from the Fujiwara Dam water. After the above water sample had been taken, the Reverend Kato Hoki, chief priest of the Jyuhouin Temple, made a one-hour prayer practice beside the dam. After that, new water samples were taken, frozen and photographed. As you can see (at right), the change is stunning--the ugly blob of the former sample has become a clear, bright-white hexagonal crystal-within-a-crystal.

At left, for comparison purposes, is a representative photograph of "untreated" distilled water. Different samples of distilled water showed different formations, but none were crystallized. Then this water was treated by taping words or people's names to the bottles, playing music to them, or exposing them to floral essences. One interesting result was that there was a language difference. For example, "Thank you" in English evoked different crystal formations than the same sentiment in Japanese. Here are some other effects that Emoto claims to have found in his research:

  • Water from clear mountain springs and streams has beautifully formed crystalline structures, while the crystals of polluted or stagnant water are deformed and distorted.
  • Distilled water exposed to classical music takes delicate, symmetrical crystalline shapes.
  • When the words "thank you" were taped to a bottle of distilled water, the frozen crystals had a similar shape to the crystals formed by water that had been exposed to Bach's "Goldberg Variations" (see right) -- music composed out of gratitude to the man it was named for.
  • When Elvis Presley's "Heartbreak Hotel" was played to water, the resulting frozen crystals were split in two.

  • When water samples are bombarded with heavy metal music or labeled with negative words, or when negative thoughts and emotions are focused intentionally upon them, the water does not form crystals at all and displays chaotic, fragmented structures.
  • When water is treated with aromatic floral oils, the water crystals tend to mimic the shape of the original flower. At right, water crystals were exposed to aromatic essence of chamomile.

    Of great interest for healing and just day-to-day well being is the extreme effect upon water crystals of negative words and ideas. When the words "Adolf Hitler" were taped to a bottle of distilled water, the results seen at left were obtained.

    Sometimes, when we cannot see the immediate results of our prayers and affirmations, we think that we have failed. But, as we learn through Masaru Emoto's amazing photographs, that thought of failure itself becomes represented in the physical objects that surround us. Now that we have seen this, perhaps we can begin to realize that even when immediate results are invisible to the unaided human eye, they are there. When we love our own bodies, they respond. When we send our love to the Earth, she responds.

    For our own bodies at birth are 70 percent water, and the percentage of water in our bodies remains high throughout life (depending upon weight and body type). Also, the earth's surface is 70 percent water. And now we have seen before our eyes the proof that water is far from inanimate, but is actually alive and responsive to our every thought and emotion. Perhaps, having seen this, we can begin to really understand the awesome power that we possess, through choosing our thoughts and intentions, to heal ourselves and the earth. If only we believe.
