Masaru Emoto Demonstrates the Importance of Gratitude and Love - Literally!

Masaru Emoto is the bestselling author of "Messages from Water." The personal development books by Emoto are quite unique in that his theories are backed up by beautiful photographs of water crystals (frozen water photographed using a microscope). He uses these crystals to show how powerful thoughts, emotions and intentions are and how they affect the structure of water. Here's how that goes:

Water subjected to loving thoughts, emotions and intentions creates bright, beautiful symmetrical crystals and water subjected to negative thoughts, emotions and intentions creates dull, ugly asymmetrical crystals.

His message is that those same thoughts affect our bodies, other people, and the planet in the same way since we are all made mostly of water (up to 75 percent of the human body is water).

Obviously spiritual teachers and many others have been saying millennia that our thought, emotions and intentions affect ourselves and our environment (no physical action required!), but since we cannot SEE this for ourselves, it has remained a theory or has even been considered 'hogwash' by mainstream culture.

Mr. Emoto changed all that. His very hands-on, practical approach with the-evidence-in-your-face-just-watch-the-photos presented in a no-nonsense, yet gentle, kind and loving way is part of what has rightfully made Mr. Emoto so famous all over the world.

When we literally SEE the effects of the power of thoughts, emotion and intention as shown in photographs of water crystals, it becomes really hard to deny that what we think, feel and intend actually has an impact - a physical impact - on ourselves and the world around us.

About Masaru Emoto

Masaru Emoto was born in Japan on July 22, 1943. He attended Yokohama Municipal University and later when on to establish his own company. He also received a Doctor of Alternative Medicine degree in India.

Eventually, he was introduced to micro-cluster water and began deeper research into the mysteries of water. He is currently head of the International Water for Life Foundation.

During his years of research, Mr.  Emoto has studied the affect of many different variables upon the structure of water.

Many of those photographs have been released in his bestselling books.
