One of the most compelling pieces of scientific research that shows the physical effects of the power of the wordis that of Japanese scientist Dr. Masaru Emoto.
Dr. Emoto created a method to freeze water samples in Petri dishes in such a way that the surface tension formsdrops of ice in the dishes about one millimeter across. He was able to magnify and photograph the formation ofcrystals in these tiny drops of ice. Then Dr. Emoto conducted hundreds of experiments to see what effect, if any, thoughts and words would have on the formation of these crystals.
The results of these experiments have been published in several books including “The Hidden Messages in Water.” The photographs demonstrate the ways that thoughts and feelings can affect physical reality. By producing different focused intentions through written and spoken words and literally “presenting” them to the same water samples, the water appears to "change its expression.” Beautiful, perfectly symmetrical crystals form when the water was presented with the words “Thank you,” or “Love and Gratitude.” In contrast, crystals did not form when presented with the words
“You Fool” or “You Make Me Sick.” Dr. Emoto also conducted water crystal experiments with different kinds of musicwith amazing results. Learn more at http://www.masaru-emoto.net.
A picture is worth a thousand words....
The implication of Dr. Emoto’s research is vast and profound. Consider that our bodies are largely made up of water. If we are sending critical messages to our self or others in the form of thoughts or words, we are literally affecting the physiological structure of our cells to our detriment. If, however, we stop sending critical, negative messages and start consciously sending loving, positive messages, think of what a difference we can make. We can help heal our bodies, our minds, our emotions, and indeed, positively affect the world around us.
“Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Choose your words, for they become actions. Understand youractions, for they become habits. Study your habits, for they will become your character. Develop your character, for it becomes your destiny.”—Unknown
So send a message to your body this week by choosing positive, compassionate words - for it's not just for you, it's for your children.
