In the movie, What the Bleep Do We Know!?, a reference is made to how the molecular structure of water can be affected by the words, thoughts and feelings it is consistently exposed to.
This isn’t something they pulled out of thin air. It is based on the studies of Dr. Masaru Emoto, a Japanese author, researcher and entrepreneur.
Dr. Emoto was born in Yokohama Japan in 1943. He graduated from Yokohama Municipal University and began his studies on water in the mid-90s.
Emoto believed that water is the “blueprint of our reality”, and that emotional vibrations could change the physical structure of water. He claimed that water exposed to positive speech and thoughts would create visually pleasing crystals, while negative thoughts would results in ugly crystal formations.
It is said that 70 to 80% of the Earth’s surface is water. You might be able to think of something else that consists of 70 to 80% water – our bodies.
This causes one to wonder whether or not there is any connection between the words we speak and the lives we live. If words, thoughts and feelings can change the molecular structure of water, then what are the implications for the things we say to ourselves and to the people we routinely come into contact with? How do the things we say affect our lives?
Are words beacons of creative power, or are they mere devices of communication?
