There are times that you come across things that are very inspiring and up lifting. Fortunately for me my social media is filled with with positive up lifting people and messages. People often sharing success and strategies to face adversity. My social media feed is a powerful group of people, and I fill invigorated every time I go online. I would encourage each and everyone of you to do the same thing, and eliminate anything that causes bad feelings inside of you and substitute it with people that make you feel good.  In fact a business that I follow shared a simple but deep image on their timeline that says it perfectly.


To many this may seem like a simple message, however the results of adhering to it are profound. If we take check of how the people around us effect our thoughts and emotions for better or worse we would be amazed. In fact it reminds me of the Masaru Emoto experiment and how powerful the words of others can be on you. 

The study of Masaru Emoto on consciousness and water has been a paradigm shifting study and one that has significantly influenced the worlds understanding of consciousness. Though the study has not been recreated in any meaningful way and faces some criticism, the study and the findings tell an amazing story about the power of love, and the complexity of water.

For those that are not familiar, Dr. Emoto, he set out to discover the effects love and hate have on water. Since water makes up the majority of the earth and the majority of the human body the effects these two feelings had on water would be fairly meaningful. Masaru designed the study in a way that proved to demonstrate some remarkable results, and here is how he achieved it.

He took water and exposed it two different emotional energies both love and hate, in the form of someone saying nice things like “I love you” consistently to one glass of water, and someone saying something mean like “I hate you” to the other glass of water. Emoto then froze these glasses and examined the frozen water under a microscope. The finding according to what was published was pretty impressive. The water exposed to the loving words formed complex well organized shapes, where as the water exposed to hate formed unorganized shapes that were less aesthetically pleasing.

Emoto carried out this experiment in a variety of ways by also introducing water to different frequencies and music. Water that listened to harmonic and complex music like Beethoven formed proportional shapes that were aesthetically pleasing. Water exposed to heavy metal music formed disproportionate crystalline structures that appeared ugly for a lack of abetter word. Similarly, frequencies of different hertz were played next to the water and the frequencies that are harmonic created more proportional crystalline structures compared to their un-harmonic counter parts. These findings are similar to what people are discovering when experimenting with cymatics. Higher frequencies will create more complex structures than there lower frequency counterparts.

With cymatics sand is normally placed on a metal plate that is tuned to resonate a certain frequencies. When the plate resonates at higher or lower frequencies the sand on the plate begins to take different shapes. Again, as the frequency of the plate increases, the shape takes a more complex shape. This was first demonstrated by violinist in the 1800’s by strumming his violin bow across a metal sheet with sand placed upon it. This has been recreated in modern days with electrical equipment that can resonate the metal plate by simply turning a knob up and down.

Emoto’s experiment became another leg of this experiment by seeing how frequencies affected the form that water took as opposed to sand. Though a little different, there findings suggest that frequencies affect matter, whether is be a deliberate frequency, or a certain frequency of music, or the frequency of a word spoken.

This experiment highlights how malleable our environment and ourselves are to the external frequencies around us. Whether it be the music we constantly expose ourselves to or the conversations we partake in, we are being penetrated by their frequencies.

It is common for people in the field of consciousness to say “raise your frequency,” and now we may have some more substance behind exactly what that means.

Although Emoto’s experiment does face some controversy, because of the way it was structured. It has begun a conversation that future scientist may be able to expand upon.

Regardless of the details of Emoto’s experiment, there is something to be said about the people you surround yourself with, and the conversations you fill your time with.

Find positivity. Be positivity.
