How Words Affect Us: Can Water Remember?

One of the most groundbreaking pieces of research on energy in recent years has been that of Masaru Emoto’s study with water crystal. Emoto, a Japanese researcher, began looking into homeopathy, whereby a medicine is diluted in water until the medicine is no longer detectable. The diluted medicine eventually has no trace of the original medicine, yet even without any trace at all has the same curative effect as the original medicine.

Emoto decided to study this concept further to see if somehow water could “remember.” He began to freeze water and take photographs of the crystals that were formed—with astonishing results. At first, Emoto looked at the crystals formed from samples of tap water taken from different locations. He could not find one crystal in his frozen sample of heavily chlorinated water from Tokyo, yet natural spring water, no matter where it was from, always formed beautiful, complete crystals.

He then decided to see what would happen if he played music to the water, then froze it to form crystals. Again, he was sure the music would somehow affect the water. Placing a bottle of water on a table with two speakers either side, music was played to the water—and again, the results were astonishing. When frozen, water that had been played classical musical made beautiful, well-formed crystals, but water that had been played heavy metal music formed distorted and malformed frozen crystals.

Next, he took things further. Emoto wrote words onto pieces of paper like “fool” and “thank you.” It sounded crazy to think that the water could somehow read the words, but if words carried an energy and water was the best absorber of energy, then maybe something interesting would happen. The water receiving the words “thank you” formed wonderful crystals, but the water receiving the word “fool” made similar distorted shapes as the liquid exposed to the heavy metal music. The most beautiful frozen crystals were formed by water that had been exposed to the words “love” and “gratitude.”

If our bodies are 70 percent water and words carry a vibration that affects water, it stands to reason that words greatly affect us.

“The entire universe is in a state of vibration, and each thing generates its own frequency, which is unique.” Masaru Emoto
