Messages from Water and the Universe

MESSAGES FROM WATER & THE UNIVERSE Masaru Emoto It has been fifteen years since we succeeded in taking the very first photograph of a water crystal. It took more than two months to get that image after we started the experiment. I still remember how deeply moved my staff and I all were when we finally captured it on film. When we developed the photo, a beautiful hexagonal crystal appeared. I was captivated by its beauty, and since then, my team and I have continued taking many water-crystal photos.

We came up with the idea to take photos of water crystals after the water was exposed to specific kinds of music or written words. Words and phrases that are based on universal truths, such as thank you, formed lovely, symmetrical hexagons. But water that was exposed to negative words of phrases produced ugly, misshapen crystals.

The beauty and mystery of the crystals
Among all of the pictures, the most beautiful crystal, in my opinion, is the one that was exposed to the phrase love and gratitude for twenty four hours.

Take a look at this photo. What do you think? To me, it resembles an open flower and emanates a mysterious and graceful light. I don’t think this kind of magnificent beauty can be created by any human being. Even after examining thousands of photos, this is the one that captured my heart, but I wondered how those simple words could give birth to such an exceptionally elegant crystal. This became the burning question that I had to solve at any cost. Looking back now, I realise that the last decade has been dedicated to finding the answer.

In recent years, I’ve finally reached a conclusion. And within it, there’s an important message, that is the theme of Messages from Water and the Universe. I’m going to share what I’ve learned about the truth of the crystal of love and gratitude, and this message couldn’t have arrived at a more perfect time.

The world is in turmoil, as a great turning point is approaching. Many of us are already experiencing the various problems that humanity is facing, such as the economic crisis, diminishing natural resources, or newly emerging diseases that threaten our health, to name but a few. A lot of people are simply at a loss when it comes to how they should live in this chaotic world.

However, everything becomes clear if you listen to the messages taught by water.
I believe what causes our confusion is the fact that we haven’t learned the authentic nature of the world or the essence of living, but this wisdom is revealed in water.

Since I was a child, I’ve wondered about these seemingly simple questions: ‘Where did I come from?’ ‘What is my purpose?’ and ‘Where am I going after I die?’ I’ve never stopped looking for answers; and when I ‘met’ water at the age of forty three, I dedicated myself to studying it and have been deeply absorbed by its power ever since. In the course of seeking the truth, I’ve discovered the answers to those fundamental questions. Further, I was led by water to develop my own understanding of the way of life that can bring the greatest happiness, and even how the universe itself was created.

The biggest catalyst for me was gazing upon the crystal of love and gratitude. Water taught me that those words shine most beautifully. In fact, I think they’re the key words in the coming age of the great transition. Love and gratitude make up the essence of life.

The essence of life
As I travel the world and meet new people, I refer to those who shine with the light of love and gratitude as Aikansha-bito – ‘beautiful humans of love and gratitude’. When everyone on Earth embraces these values, we’ll be surrounded by this spectacular, eternal shining light.

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 Messages from Water and the Universe to you for that day when you’ll be born again as Aikansha-bito.

Know that the best way to shine is to follow your heart and express loving-kindness to everyone you encounter. Always remember that water will show you the way, no matter where you are or what you’re doing.

When you look at a water crystal through a microscope, you can see countless other crystals behind the one you’re focusing on. It’s as if an extended universe exists within a tiny drop of water. When I get a glimpse of this beautiful world, a single thought comes to mind: once we activate our DNA to its full potential, a door to a new way of life will open, When that happens, our hearts will be filled with love and gratitude for each other and the entire planet. Imagine what a wonderful world that will be!
