Masuru Emoto ~ interesting thoughts

"Water reflects the human soul.  If you say, 'thank you' to water, it will be reflected in the form of beautiful crystals overflowing with gratitude in return." — The Secret Life of Water
The Secret Life of Water ~ by Masuru Emoto, 2005
From its arrival on earth to the vast areas it traverses before emptying into the sea, water holds all the knowledge and experience it has acquired.  As phenomenal as it may seem, water carries its whole history, just as we carry ours.  It carries secrets, too.  In this book, bestselling author Masaru Emoto guides us along water’s remarkable journey through our planet and continues his work to reveal water’s secret life to humankind.  He shows how we can apply its wisdom to our own lives, and how, by learning to respect and appreciate water, we can better confront the challenges that face the twenty-first century — and rejuvenate the planet.
The Hidden Messages in Water ~ by Masuru Emoto, 2004
This book has the potential to profoundly transform your world view.  Using high-speed photography, Dr. Masaru Emoto discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them.  He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns.  In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors.  The implications of this research create a new awareness of how we can positively impact the earth and our personal health.
I'm frustrated because my library does not have either of these books. The next time I visit my branch library, I intend to put in a request that we acquire both books.

When I posted this, the Quote of the Day at the top of my sidebar next to it said,

"Some people strengthen the society just by being the kind of people they are." — John W. Gardner

I definitely think there's a connection. The focus of our society seems to be violence, whether in "thrillers" or movies or football. We need to think good thoughts toward each other and the world — and even the water we drink.

Water. It is so essential to our every day being yet we take it for granted. I actually need to live by the ocean, to me it is so calming. However, I know I don't really think about it enough.

And, I LOVE photos of water, especially when they've slowed down the shutter speed and catch it in action!

Finding these quotes here and on FB has me wondering about this author and his books! Since I lived in Japan as an adolescent, I always like Japanese viewpoints.

I recently, within the past four years, have grown to love water. I truly believe it is without a doubt proof of the divine. Both of these books look absolutely fascinating.

I hope the library can get them for you soon.
