Emoto: Love Thyself

I don't know how many of my readers have delved into Masaru Emoto's The Hidden Messages of Water. That book written during his extensive research with water was published in 1999 and became an immediate best seller. His research showed that water crystals responded to prayers, words, music, and energy. It also showed water can be renewed. The Hidden Messages of Water explains the methods he used and is filled with remarkable photographs of crystals made from water around the globe.

Recently I began reading another of his books. This one, released in 2004, delves deeper into the messages from the water. The title is Love Thyself —The Message from Water III. The author included even more photographs of crystals, as well as the giving the word and language used to create it.

Emoto also conducted research using the names of five religions (Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and Hinduism) to created crystals. In his research, he used different languages, music, and prayers only to discovered that these elements didn’t prevent the formation the crystals. It seems as if the water has a mind of its own, and it created crystals as though it understood the meanings of the words used whether spoken or silent and despite the language.

I will not attempt to explain his methods. His book does a excellent job of this. I cannot accurately describe the beauty of his photographs. His book shows that. I urge you to read a copy of the 2004 book for those details. But I can offer you some of Emoto’s ideas about water.

  • Water catches the vibrations of words and reflects them back in the form of crystals.

  • As long as a word is used correctly, the reaction of water will be the same, regardless of language.

  • It is better to be as precise as possible, as water is very sensitive to vibrations. (For example, using “Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome” instead of “SARS” allowed the water to absorb the meaning of the words.”)

  • The words love and thanks have very positive energy and create exceptionally lovely crystals. The word war creates a horribly misshapen one.

  • Distilling water forms a damaged crystal.

Emoto tested water by using both spoken words and by placing the water in a glass that had a written word on it. The water reacted similarly with both methods. It makes me think of words we find on glasses and cups. I’m thinking of creating a set with words like grateful, love, honor, truth, and hope instead of “Thank God it’s Friday” or “Another blue Monday.”

What does all of this mean for you and me?

NASA says, “About 70% of the human body is made up of water and, coincidentally, more than 70 percent of the Earth is covered in water.” It reinforces what we have been told over the ages; our emotions and words hold great power, and perhaps we should give more thought to how we express them. It raises the question about the energy of water. Does Emoto’s research lend credence to what the sages teach that raising our vibrations is the method to peace on earth? If so, that has to begin with each of us. We need to love ourselves before we can love another.

I hope this information intrigues you enough to go to the library and check out Love Thyself, buy it from Amazon or Barnes & Noble, or borrow it from a friend. It is well worth the time to read this fascinating research and its implications.
