How Water Reacts to Words and Music

How Water Reacts to Words and Music

Masaru Emoto, a Japanese research scientist, began conducting experiments with water in 1994. He would collect water samples from around the world, freeze it and analyze the crystals under a microscope. He started by studying and comparing water from clean, mountain streams to city tap water. Water from mountain streams and springs formed beautiful geometric designs in their crystalline patterns, while city water and polluted water formed distorted and damaged crystal structures. As Emoto furthered his research, he began to make astonishing discoveries as water reacted to words, phrases and music. Water exposed to positive words, music and thoughts formed beautiful crystals. Words exposed to negative words, music and thoughts formed fragmented crystals. Here are a few photos from his studies:

Considering that our bodies are made of approximately 60% water, I wouldn’t doubt that our thoughts, words and the music we listen to have similar effects that happen within our bodies. After discovering Emoto’s work over a year ago, I began paying closer attention to my thoughts and words. I have also started listening to classical music and songs with positive messages on a regular basis. It wasn’t until recently when I started paying closer attention to the water I drink as well.

After hearing about Water & Wellness through a friend, I decided to check out what makes my local water purification company different from the rest. After going into their shop to hear more about their purification processes, I discovered they actually incorporate best practices learned from Emoto’s discoveries into their water. In addition to their very thorough purification system, they play high-vibrational music in the purification room along with attaching positive words to their water storage containers.

I tried their ionized alkaline water and noticed a huge difference in the way I felt. The first couple of days was definitely a detox, as alkaline water will help remove acid waste from your body due to the higher pH levels, and ionization helps neutralize free radicals in your body. If you live in the Salt Lake City area, I highly recommend checking out the water at Water & Wellness. Regardless of where you live, I challenge you to step up your water game and see what better water can do for you. If you’ve found a great water purification company near you, please comment below. I would love to hear about it!

    Hello Laura. I read your article based on Bruce Kasanoff’s suggestion from LinkedIn. Your article is very interesting and inspiring. I have lupus and other autoimmunes as a result of it. As you probably know, multiple medications are thrown at it in the hopes to dampen it down. Can you advise how to find a local water purification company similar to yours? Our tap water in Chicagoland leaves something to be desired. I know some people who drink Fiji water instead. I’m turning over a leaf (or a few) and incorporating different types of wellness into my life. Thank you for sharing your story.

    1. Amy, thank you so much for sharing. I am sorry that you’re facing those health challenges. I hope you are able to find other resources on the site that help you as well. Let me do a little research for similar companies in the Chicago area and I’ll get right back to you. I am happy to help! I’ll be in touch very soon.

  2. This is terrible pseudoscience. Pure water can not be alkaline. Alkaline means basic. Pure water is purely neutral, based on the definition of acid and basic. “Water and Wellness” is scamming you. Additionally, Masuru Emoto’s “research” is also pseudoscience and has not been backed up by a peer reviewed academic journal. He also doesn’t have a medical degree so he isn’t a doctor. Your pictures of his crystals are terrible, they are not of the same amount of water, not taken from the same angle and are not at the same zoom. Some of the “negative” ones look like they are frozen on a surface and not of an individual crystal. Everything on this webpage is fake.

      Alexander, thank you for taking the time to comment. Do you have links you could share of scientific studies on this topic that further illustrate your points here? Would love to read/learn more. If you a professional in this field we’d be happy to review any studies you have to share that contradicts our information. Thank you!
