The article, Scientific Evidence Thoughts & Intentions Can Alter The Physical World Around Us via The Mind Unleashed suggests that human thoughts and intentions can alter physical reality, such as the molecular structure of water. Does that sound familiar? That’s right, they’re referring to Dr. Masaru Emoto’s studies.

They also talk a little bit about the rice experiment.


Dr. Emoto placed portions of cooked rice into tow containers. On one container he wrote “thank you” and on the other “you fool”. He then instructed school children to say the labels on the jars out loud everyday when they passed them by. After 30 days, the rice in the container with positive thoughts had barely changed, while the other was moldy and rotten.

The experiment itself is very similar to his water crystal experiments in which he found that intentions may be able to influence the structure of water.

Based on everything we’ve had the opportunity to explore together, there’s a question that must be asked:

We’ve learned that metal is a conductor of electricity. But we can’t forget that vibration, frequency, and energy are all terms commonly used in reference to electricity. Some experts even describe our thoughts and the activity in our brains as electrical signals. Based on this evidence, is it possible that our words, thoughts and intentions could have some kind of effect on metal atoms or inanimate objects?
