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:
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
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
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.
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.
