Mia and I have been discussing a number of New Age concepts on my blog lately and Dr. Masaru Emoto just happened to come up in our comments. Now if comments were any indication of who was reading my blog, I would assume that I have only two readers: Mia from Sweden and Tina from Spain!
But! As any blogger knows, you can get a daily report (thanks to your awstats) on who comes to your blog, what countries are these readers coming from, how they found your blog, etc. So I know I have a readership of several thousand people in over thirty countries! (Not too bad having started this blog just a little over three months ago!)
So for those of you who don’t comment on my blog, but faithfully read my posts, I thought it would be interesting to go more in depth on Dr. Emoto’s experiments with water. If you haven’t seen the film, What the Bleep!? - Down the Rabbit Hole nor read the book, The Secret, or haven’t seen the photographs that Dr. Emoto has taken of water crystals in his book, The Hidden Messages in Water, then read on!
The whole concept (which theologians having been saying for centuries, and scientists are finally coming to the same conclusion) that the Universe is nothing more than energy and that our thoughts are one of the most powerful sources of energy, is nothing new. What’s new is finally getting scientific proof of this idea.
Over forty years ago people were fascinated by research that was done in New York (the Backster Effect) and later in laboratories in California using sensory devices on plants showing that plants have a neural network and an understanding and knowledge beyond what we had previously thought. One experiment that was done was, Person A would go into a greenhouse (where all the plants had sensory devices attached to them) and would proceed to caress the plants and tell them how beautiful they were. He would water them lovingly and play soft music for them. He would then go out of the room and after a period of time Person B would come in, turn on loud music, tell them how ugly they were, scream at them, and before leaving, he would take one plant, smash it to the floor, and walk out.
The next day Person A would walk into the greenhouse, wouldn’t do or say anything except have loving thoughts for them and walk between the rows of plants. The plants all remained calm. After he would leave, Person B would walk in; again he wouldn’t do or say anything except think about smashing one of them and walk between the plants. However, from the moment that Person B came into the greenhouse, all the plants were jittery and nervous, the lines going off the charts like on a polygraph machine! Over and over the results were the same; the plants immediately recognized the difference between Person(s) A and Person(s) B taking part in the experiment. A good book to read for those who find this subject interesting is, The Secret Life of Plants.
Dr. Emoto has done a similar thing with water crystals. By taking a drop of water, freezing it and photographing it with different thoughts in mind, the water’s reaction to the energy of positive thoughts versus negative ones are astounding. (See for yourself by placing your mouse over each photo of a crystal.)
Maya Muses: There is so much more to this Universe we live in than meets the eye. It goes back to the idea if no one would look at the Moon would the Moon still be there or would it cease to exist? Afterall, what we are experiencing is an illusion that we’ve brought on by our thoughts. Consequently, we truly are creating our own reality by what and how we think and, more importantly, how we feel!
