Last night, I was at a class and a topic that arose was the power of words — how the meaning and intention of words influence the spoken tone, energy and vibrations, which impact our bodies and external environment. I learned about an experiment performed by Dr. Masaru Emoto: he photographed the impact of words or phrases on water; specifically, on how words or phrases alter water crystals.
After seeing the images above, I went online to learn more and found the video below. It’s beautiful and thought-provoking.
Why is this relevant to us? If these changes are occurring in water, then what is the impact of words on us — our emotional, physical and spiritual health? Our bodies consist of up to 60% water!
Wanting to learn a little more about Dr. Emoto, I found the interview of him in the video below. At the end, there’s a suggested experiment that one can do to see for ourselves!
Dr. Emoto and his experiments have been criticized for a number of reasons, of course. Based on my personal experiences in life however, I won’t quickly discard the idea that words influence our bodies and environment. I’ll shelf this as something interesting to keep in mind. I think the suggested experiment at the end of the above video will be the first “science” experiment that I’ll do with my daughters.
