The Hidden Messages In Water – A Book Review


I came across someone who had read this book a few months ago and it immediately caught my attention.  The magic of water. A man who has been able to photograph the transformations of crystals of water after being exposed to music, words, pictures and more.  A seemingly very simple idea, the results that it went on to produce were quite astounding and the book has been a worldwide bestseller.

Masaru Emoto is a Japanese author and researcher and began studying water in the 1990s with the belief that ‘Understanding the fact that we are essentially water is the key to uncovering the mysteries of the universe’.

His research led him to study effects on the molecular structure of water captured in water crystals. To do this he wrapped pieces of paper with words typed on them to bottles of water, words in different languages such as ‘Thank you’, “Love and Gratitude’ ‘Let’s do it’ as well as more negative statements such as ‘Do it’ ‘Adolf Hitler’ ‘You make me sick’.

He wrapped pieces of paper with different images such as the earth. He played music to the water from Beethoven to Heavy Metal and much more.  Masaru’s premise was to his experiment was that ‘all things vibrate, and they vibrate at their own frequencies.  When you understand this then you will significantly broaden your understanding of the universe’.

Masaru’s conclusions are that water ‘faithfully mirrors all the vibrations created in the world, and changes these vibrations into a form that can be seen with the human eye’ and he has found a way to successfully capture this image.

You can seeHiddenmessages2 some of the pictures of these water crystals online on his website and there are lots more in his book.

It is from here that Masaru begins to explore the implications of his findings.  The affects that words, music, feelings and more can have on our own beings, on other people and on the world.  According to the USGS Water Science School in some organisms up to 90% of their body weight comes from water and in humans up to 60% of the adult body is water.  Water is both around us and in us and is shown here to reflect positively or negatively depending on its surrounding.

So what do we learn or take from these mirrored forms of vibrations that we can see from the human eye. Now Masaru has come in for a lot of criticism within the scientific community and some people are not completely convinced by his research’s ‘scientific’ validity. What I did love reading about this book is the message that Masaru so neatly explores through water. Could our words, our messages, our feelings have this effect on the molecular structure of water that makes up the vast majority of the world and living things.  There is an old saying that ‘sticks and stones may break your bones but words can never hurt you’.  Maybe this doesn’t quite work when we look internally.  And of course here at Capital Smiles we are always trying to great positive vibrations with our projects our followers.

If you want to explore this theme yourself then I can recommend this book.

Much love to all of you and many thanks for your continuous support!
