The power and influence of positive and negative thinking could not be more profoundly proven than the way that Dr. Emoto does.
Being the “I have to see it to believe it” person that I am, I found this book not only fascinating and incredibly interesting, but particularly useful for me in reinforcing my belief system that there was a strong and significant connection between the thoughts that we have and our bodies.
The premise and conclusions made from Dr. Emoto’s research was that humans could influence how water molecules looked when photographed, by our beliefs or statements towards it. Taking samples of water from various sources, and freezing them, Dr. Emoto was able to take photographs of what the water molecules looked like originally, and under other circumstances, such as after being blessed by a monk, or while listening to rap music, or having statements such as “I love you” or “I hate you and want you to die” said to a glass of water or affixed by a note.
The photographs are amazing and quite affirmatively demonstrate that our thoughts, energy, intent, and emotions toward water has a significant impact on how it looks when photographed.
It seemed hard to believe at first, but upon further review made perfect sense.
Taking his findings one step further, as posited in the book, in thinking about our bodies being made mostly of water, there is a significant impact by our thoughts and feelings about ourselves on our bodies. What things do we say or feel about ourselves when we look into the mirror? What do we say about ourselves to others? How do we perceive our bodies? What do we say (by words or feelings) about ourselves to ourselves and how often?
This is the stuff that one could law awake contemplating, but suffice to say it allowed me the opportunity to pay attention to what I think, say, and feel about myself, and what I say to others about me. I am a more significant and powerful influencer on my health than anyone else can be, because I’m pretty sure I have more thoughts about myself than anyone else does, so why not choose to be more kind and loving?
