Does Water Have Consciousness?
By James Donahue
Water, perhaps the most vital component for life, is so abundant
on Earth that most humans take it for granted. Yet the very consistency of water is a mystery within itself.
Comprised of two explosive gasses, hydrogen and oxygen, when
combined in a simple formula of two parts oxygen and one part hydrogen, it becomes a fluid substance that has the capability
of dowsing fire and maintaining life. Once the gases combine to form water, it almost takes a rocket scientist to figure out
how to separate them again.
Now a Japanese scientist is saying he believes that water
has a consciousness of its own and that mankind must not only understand this, but learn to show a love and respect for water
if we expect to continue our existence.
As a major component of Planet Earth, a sentient giant that
many humans believe is the creator of all living things that exist in and on its surface, the discoveries by Dr. Masaru Emoto
must be given serious consideration. If the Earth is a living thing, and all of the cells that comprise the things on it are
not only alive, but aware, who can say that the water that covers a portion of its surface and flows through the underground
rivers like blood through our veins is not also alive?
Emoto, the author of Messages
From Water, says he has discovered that water, which is nearly as old as our planet and a basic component of life, has
a consciousness and can perceive, remember and communicate with the environment like all other living organisms.
An alternative medicine specialist, Dr. Emoto believes water
has a natural healing power. He has been researching its mysteries since 1994 using a magnetic resonance analyzer to measure
While we know so little about water, Emoto believes it is
important that we learn what the ancients once knew, and start to live in healthy harmony with the substance that comprises
over 70 percent of our bodies.
He also believes that humans must experience a paradigm shift
of thought before they will have any chance of uncovering the consciousness of water.
Emoto’s experiments with water included collecting samples
from around the world and then observing and photographing them through a microscope as they were frozen into crystals.
Using magnifications of up to 500 times, Emoto discovered
that while thawing, as the frozen flakes became liquid, they revealed certain crystal structures.
“It is impossible to obtain identical crystal pictures
even from one type of water . . . but there is a certain tendency in all of the samples to form a crystal grid,” he
He said he had the feeling that each crystal was trying hard
to become beautiful. “It’s trying to purify itself,” he said.
And there was something else. Emoto found that there was a
significant difference in the way water crystallized and the crystals broke down again when the samples came from urban areas
compared to other more healthy environments.
He said the “healthy water” would show a complete
hexagonal crystal structure that did not exist in water from polluted areas.
Emoto believes water contains Hado, an intrinsic vibrational
pattern at the atomic level in all matter. “Water is the most receptive of the four elements,” he said.
His experiments involved placing bottles of distilled water
between amplifiers and playing various kinds of music. When classical works or the chanting of monks were produced the water
produced clear and beautiful crystal structures. When pop or heavy metal music was played, the crystals were haphazard.
The experiments also involved the way water reacted to energy
from pictures and words. “Letters and pictures contain vibrations, too. Our consciousness, values and feelings are imprinted
on such objects,” he said.
He said he found that water is capable of memorizing sound
vibrations and this memory is reflected in the way it forms crystals. “Water reflects what it perceives,” he said.
Emoto found that water crystallization changed when it occurred
in different human environments. For example, when the water was placed in front of a computer monitor, no crystals were produced.
But when a piece of paper with a positive word like “love” was attached to the bottle, crystals developed. When
placed near a television playing a movie with a positive storyline, there were lovely crystals.
The words “devil” and “angel,” having
negative and positive connotations among the humans around the water, also affected the water. The crystals changed from a
deformed, blackish structure to beautiful hexagonal formations.
“The medium is not as important as the energy it conveys,”
Emoto said. “If you have a happy and positive conversation on a mobile phone, the water will form good crystals.
“Positive information results in beautiful hexagonal
crystals, while negative information shows otherwise,” he said. “If we are aware of this and communicate good
feelings and messages, the quality of crystals will be beautiful and hence the quality of the water will be good,” he
As a physician, Dr. Emoto said he believes that if we learn
to take care of the water that is within our bodies, we can heal. “As we are mainly composed of water, we should vibrate
good energy to the water in our bodies. Positive thinking and emotions, for example, can readily affect the quality of water
in our body. Stress, a cause of many illnesses, is a result of the bad energy we carry in our body’s water.”
Emoto also urged people to be kind to other water-based beings
on the planet and create positive energy flows throughout the world.
The tragedy is that water around the world has become highly
polluted as a result of human ignorance and un-gratefulness. Emoto believes, however, that we have the power to improve the
quality of this water by becoming aware of its qualities and learning to be more grateful for it.
“By changing the vibration, we can change the substance.
So we can alter the environment,” he said
