"One of our favourites, Alison's simple and practical approach to natural medicine and understanding of the body as a whole infuses us with the hope that we can overcome anything!"
Patrick Timpone, One Radio Host
This stunning image and many others of water crystals have been taken by Masaru Emoto and his team over the last 15 years. For those of you that are not already familiar with his best-selling books, Masaru is a Japanese born doctor of alternative medicine that became fascinated by the fact that no two snowflakes are ever the same. He developed a system to capture this phenomenon using high-speed photography in freezing conditions.
The results have both delighted with their beauty and provided irrefutable proof of the effect of consciousness on matter. More exquisite than the most amazing diamond, the formations of these crystals speak to us about the fractal architecture of the universe, the amazing properties of water and the effect of consciousness upon the fabric of reality.
Masaru began by photographing water from different sources including chemically treated municipal water from all over the world, pure water from natural sources and water recognised to have special healing qualities such as that found at Lourdes.
However, his work then expanded into photographing the crystals formed when water was first exposed to:
Specific pieces of music - from the most beautiful classical music, through the Beatles to heavy rock and gangster rap
Music from different genres from all over the world including Korean folk songs, Tibetan chants, polkas and gospel
Words written in different languages and taped to the water container
Images of a variety of places and objects including landscapes, crop circles, planets, shrines, etc.
Speech - both life-affirming and insulting phrases
Song - including traditional and children's songs
Radiation from various sources such as the television, mobile phone or microwave oven
Both kind and unkind thoughts
Classical music by the likes of Mozart, Bach and Beethoven produced exquisite crystals as did 'Yesterday' by The Beatles
'Heartbreak Hotel' by Elvis Presley produced a crystal broken in two!
Many diverse traditional musical genres also produced beautiful crystals
Water exposed to hard rock music failed to crystallise
The same word in different languages produced variations on a theme and the crystals seem somehow to capture the essence of a nation
Water that was either insulted or ignored failed to crystallise
Even slight variations in words such as the difference between "Do it!" (an order) and "Let's do it" (an affirmation) produced a massive difference in structure
The words 'Sorry', 'Love and gratitude' and 'Thank-you' produced the most regular, stunning and colourful crystals
Water that had been irradiated failed to crystallise
Water that had been exposed to negative thoughts formed incomplete, asymetrical crystals in dull colours
His work has profound implications. First, because both our bodies and our home planet are mostly water. Second, because we have not even begun to explain the special properties of water such as the 'memory' employed therapeutically by homeopaths. Last, but not least, because his work confirms what the mystics have maintained all along: That we create our own reality.
Masaru suggests that this knowledge can produce personal and planetary transformation - starting with each one of us and the things we say, do and think.
