Masaru Emoto was born in Yokohama in July 1943. He graduated from the Yokohama Municipal University where he studied International Relations. In 1986, he established the I.H.M. Corporation in Tokyo. In 1992, he received certification from the Open International University as a Doctor of Alternative Medicine. Subsequently, he was introduced to the concept of micro cluster water and Magnetic Resonance Analysis technology. He is currently the head of the I.H.M. General Research Institute, Inc., the President of I.H.M., Inc., and the chief representative of I.H.M.'s HADO Fellowship. In his first book, The Message from Water (in three volumes), Emoto documents his findings of what he calls "the true nature of water," discovered in his study of the effects of human vibrational energy, thoughts, words, ideas, and music on the molecular structure of water. He has also published The Hidden Messages in Water, and his work was popularized through the movie, What the Bleep!?: Down the Rabbit Hole.
Emoto has discovered many differences in the crystalline structure of water collected from a variety of sources around the planet. Water from pristine mountain streams shows beautifully formed geometric designs when frozen, and polluted water shows definitively distorted and randomly formed crystalline structures. Emoto photographs these molecular changes in water by freezing droplets and magnifying them under a dark field microscope.
Since 1999 Emoto has published several volumes of a work titled Messages from Water, which contains photographs of water crystals next to essays and "words of intent." [wikipedia]
“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.” [Masaru Emoto, Secret Life of Water]
“No one particular religion has been able to secure the exclusive rights for the power of prayer. No matter who you are, we all have the ability to take advantage of this amazing and wonderful power. Once you realize this, you will then be filled with the desire to help others realize this as well. More and more people are resonating with this understanding, and this could result in a more wonderful future for mankind.” [Masaru Emoto, Secret Life of Water]
“It is chronic water shortage in the body that causes most diseases of the human body." [Masaru Emoto, The Healing Power of Water]
“While there is no one who hasn't an evil bone in their body, there is also no one who is totally evil to the core. The fact that someone harbors opposing emotions simply makes them human.” [Masaru Emoto, Hidden Messages in Water]
“I know that my unity with all people cannot be destroyed by national boundaries and government orders.” [Masaru Emoto, The Secret Of Water]
“In the process of falling to the earth, seeping into the ground, and then emerging, water obtain information from various minerals and becomes wise.” [Masaru Emoto]
“To give your positive or negative attention to something is a way of giving energy. The most damaging form of behavior is withholding your attention.” [Masaru Emoto, The Hidden Messages in Water]
“Water records information, and while circulating throughout the earth distributes information. This water sent from the universe is full of the information of life...” [Masaru Emoto, Hidden Messages in Water]
“Why, when a poison is diluted in water to the point where it cannot by physically detected, does the previously toxic solution then become therapeutic? When the substance itself is gone, and all that is left is the information from the vibration, both poison and medicine become the same.” [Masaru Emoto, Hidden Messages in Water]
“What is the relationship between love and gratitude? For an answer to this question, we can use water as a model. A water molecule consists of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom, represented by H2O. If love and gratitude, like oxygen and hydrogen, were linked together in a ratio of 1 to 2, gratitude would be twice as large as love.” [Masaru Emoto, Hidden Messages in Water]
“Of course, we all know that water is transparent and has no taste, smell, or color. What’s amazing about water is that it is able to show us myriad “faces” depending upon the condition it is in or the information it is given.” [Masaru Emoto, Messages from Water and the Universe]
“If we consider that the human body is a universe within itself, it is only natural to conclude that we carry within us all the elements.” [Masaru Emoto, Hidden Messages in Water]
“The vibrations created by irritation are equivalent to those of mercury, by anger to those of lead, and by sadness and sorrow to those of aluminum. In the same way, uncertainty is related to cadmium, despair to steel, and stress to zinc.” [Masaru Emoto, Hidden Messages in Water]
“When the medicine enters the body and stops the pain, the vibrations from the combined substances stop, and the various substances return to their original states, in which they emit their original vibrations. However, if these vibrations happen to damage other cell structures, then harmful side effects will result.” [Masaru Emoto, Hidden Messages in Water]
“Dramatic and sudden changes in the body's frequency result in great pain and damage. In such cases, treatment must involve equal or stronger frequencies to be effective - often having to do with the scalpel. Sharp instruments, by nature, have a higher frequency...” [Masaru Emoto, Hidden Messages in Water]
“My hope in sharing this message from water is to touch your heart so that you experience peace and healing through love and gratitude. And I would like to dedicate this book to you for that day when you’ll be born again as Aikansha-bito.” [Masaru Emoto, Messages from Water and the Universe]
“... there is a large connection between Saturn and lead. Metals resonate the emotions and moods of people, and so the next logical deduction is that Saturn is close related to anger.” [Masaru Emoto, Hidden Messages in Water]
However, my feeling is that distance would not make much of a difference. What would make a difference is the purity of intent of the person doing the praying. The higher the purity of intent, the less of a difference the distance itself would make. [Masaru Emoto]
Think of it in terms of vibration. It's easy to understand that language - the spoken word - has a vibration. Well, written words also have a vibration. Anything in existence has a vibration. [Masaru Emoto]
Beautiful words have beautiful, clear vibrations. But negative words put out ugly, incoherent vibrations which do not form clusters. Language is not something artificial, but rather is something that exists naturally. I believe that language is created by nature. [Masaru Emoto]
This principle is what I think makes swearing and slang words destructive. These words are not in accordance with the laws of nature. So, for example, I think you would probably find higher rates of violent crime in areas where a lot of negative language is being used. [Masaru Emoto]
In looking at the various environmental issues we are faced with, and the tasks that we need to fulfill for the planet, if we could get more than 10 percent of the people consciously aware, than I believe we could pull the 80 percent in that direction, too. [Masaru Emoto]
I believe that prior to Adam and Eve water itself held the consciousness of God - that God's intention was put into the medium of water, and that this was used in the creation of Earth and Nature. [Masaru Emoto]
In the past 100 years the world's population has increased from 1 billion to 6 billion. During these 100 years, war and capitalism has dominated the planet. Rather than being able to detach from our desires, the opposite has been true. Our desires have grown and grown. Very few people have been able to attain enlightenment in this environment. [Masaru Emoto]
"What we imagine in our minds becomes our world." [Masaru Emoto, The Hidden Messages in Water]
The words themselves actually emit a unique vibration that the water is sensing. When water is shown a written word, it receives it as vibration, and expresses the message in a specific form, like a visual code for expressing words. Water exposed to words 'Thank you' formed beautiful geometric crystals, no matter what the language. But water exposed to 'you fool' and other degrading words resulted in obviously broken and deformed crystals. When a complete geometric crystal is formed, water is in alignment with nature and the phenomena we call life. The words gratitude and love form the fundamental principles of the laws of nature and the phenomenon of life. [Masaru Emoto, Hidden Messages in Water]
Existence is vibration. When we separate something into its smallest parts, we always enter a strange world where all that exists is particles and waves. The fact that everything is in a state of vibration also means that everything is creating sound. And as sound is created, there is a master listener to receive the sound: water. Why would crystal formation be affected by music, and why completely different results would be reached depending on the spoken and written words water was exposed to. Water, so sensitive to the unique frequencies emitted by the world, essentially and efficiently mirrors the outside world. Music and spoken words are vibration; they are easily understood and interpreted by just about anyone. Sounds like the chant created by a human voice at a Buddhist funeral create a healing frequency. [Masaru Emoto, Hidden Messages in Water]
Love tends to be a more active energy, the act of giving oneself unconditionally. By contrast, gratitude is a more passive energy, a feeling that results from having been given something, knowing that you have been given the gift of life and reaching out to receive it joyously with both hands. What the world needs now is gratitude. We must begin by learning what it means to have enough...to feel gratitude for having been born on a planet so rich in nature, and gratitude for the water that makes our life possible. Do we really know how wonderful it is to be able to breathe a big breath of clean air? If you open your eyes you will see that the world is full of so much that deserves your gratitude. When you have become the embodiment of gratitude, think about how pure the water that fills your body will be. When this happens, you yourself will be a beautiful shining crystal of light. [Masaru Emoto, Hidden Messages in Water]
And we are beginning to hear the groaning from our tortured planet. We are at a point when we must realize that if we want to continue to call this planet our home, we need to change - not the planet, but ourselves.– Masaru Emoto, The Secret Life of Water
"Water has a memory and carries within it our thoughts and prayers. As you yourself are water, no matter where you are, your prayers will be carried to the rest of the world." [Masaru Emoto, The Secret Life of Water]
We Love Water.
We Thank Water.
We Respect Water.
We Are All Water.
We Are All One. – Masaru Emoto, Messages from Water
