Dr. Masaru Emoto’s Water Experiment – A Functional Rustic Approach

Watch the short video below about the results from Dr. Masaru Emoto’s water experiment. He studies how words, music and pictures impact water crystals when they freeze.

Learning about this experiment changed my life. I first came across it while watching the film What the Bleep: Further Down the Rabbit Hole. I found the clip from the movie about Dr. Emoto on YouTube and watched it repeatedly. I still do. The message is profound.

Words matter. Intention matters.

This is why I share quotations. On a molecular level I am positively impacting myself and everyone that reads the words I share. Those quotes can literally change people. As I am holding my coffee cup, reading through my quotes every morning I am changing the water in the coffee. Each sip I take is like drinking those positive words.

This is why I share how I overcome negative thinking. I am not the only person that has doubts and fears and insecurities. When I find an approach that helps me keep those negative thoughts at bay – I share it so you can experience that positive change too. On a molecular level I am changing me and those that learn from me in beautiful ways.

This is why I share tutorials. I feel such pride in myself every time I try a new DIY craft. Every single item I make I admire and smile each time I see it because it is a physical representation of something I accomplished. By teaching you how to build the crafts you too can have the opportunity to feel that pride. You too can have that opportunity to imbue your positive energy onto items you keep around you.

This is why I create and sell handmade décor. When I build it, I do so with the intention of inspiring someone to try and create something themselves. I believe that on a molecular level my intentions impact the sign or candle holder etc. My designs are purposefully simple so as to inspire someone to say, “Ya know, I could make this.”

This is why I share my business approach free of charge. When I share the strategies I used to average thousands of visitors to my website, I don’t do it for money. The intention is to teach, not profit. I believe the noble intentions will actually impact how the lesson is received and how it will be implemented.

This is why I have not gotten another tattoo. My first tattoo was when I was 18 – its a duck. Ha. My second tattoo was when I was 20 – its an abstract face of a weeping woman. My third tattoo was when I was 23 – its a heart. The heart is on my hand and is honor of my brother Andrew. With my new found knowledge of the power of words and images, I want to be sure I am effecting the water in body the best way possible.

Like I said, learning about this experiment changed my life. What do you think of Dr. Masaru Emoto’s results?
