Sharing a Thought for Our Well Being

I thought you'd like to see an interesting video or two on Masaru Emoto and his water crystal theory. You may have heard of him. He widely introduced the idea that what we say and do affects our inner environment and our external watery environment too.

He is not a scientist and quite naturally his claims have been challenged as pseudoscience. I don't hold any great belief on his theory, except that what we think and feel have an obvious effect upon us. Nevertheless, it's fun stuff that suggests we enjoy a relationship with our world that we may rarely explore. I also appreciate that here is someone helping promote the ideas of peace and caring.

On a daily basis, you'll experience your thoughts creating feelings and together motivating you toward or away from doing certain things. For example if you repeat the word 'Love', you'll feel noticeably different than when you repeat the word 'Hate'. Each has it's own meaning to you from your personal and socially accepted values.

Carry on and notice if you have any pictures or memories, that arise in your mind from repeating 'Love' and 'Hate'. Maybe they provoke more feelings and further thoughts. Like a car with engine and fuel, away you travel on a journey in a direction you choose. The pleasantness of your travels depends on the type of fuel. Will you prefer 'Love' or something else?

Does Thinking Change the Pattern of Frozen Water Crystals? What Does this Mean to Us?
Back to M. Emoto. How did he do his research? By high speed photography of the structure of frozen water crystals to reveal it's response to thoughts, words and pictures. What he claims to have discovered is different specific thoughts create different, specific patterns in the water crystal. Water, Emoto theorizes, has the ability to receive a wide range of frequencies (sunlight and sound) and reflect the universe in this manner.

Let's enjoy the two videos of Masaru Emoto. The first is a short interview with him. The second video describes more of his theory. Both are thought provoking in a useful direction.

Whatever your thoughts are upon this theory, it probably nudges you into caring more about what you think and feel for your well being. So, be quiet for a moment. Quieter still. As your silence becomes stiller while your body eases to help you be aware, that you can now remind yourself that thoughts and feelings are special and you only wish the very best.

Of course, the most important perspective is your own. I recommend using anything to remind yourself to think well, feel good and live with love.

Thanks for reading and please share your thoughts.


  1. Hi Jens,

    Like you, I was fascinated with Masaru Emoto's theory when I first saw the water crystal pictures.

    But after reading his books, I discovered how those pictures actually came about. His team would take tens to hundreds of pictures of water samples taken from a source (say water that has been exposed to the word love).

    Out of say 100 photos taken, some formed perfect crystals and some didn't. So there's actually a selection process going on behind those fascinating photos you see.

    But skepticism aside, I have no doubt about the influences of thoughts on a person's perspective and hence, his or her life.

    Thanks for reminding us about the importance of paying attention to our thoughts.

  2. Healthy skepticism!

    I've also read similar concerns about his research methods.
    I'm glad you took the article as it was intended and thanks for your comments.
