Does water respond to your emotions? Dr Masaru Emoto’s studies

Water is a remarkable liquid. Its extraordinary properties are unique to its molecular structure. Scientists have always wondered how these properties can be harnessed for human benefit. One such brilliant mind was Dr. Masaru Emoto, a Japanese scientist, author, and industrialist who revolutionised the idea that our thoughts and intentions could impact the molecular structure of water in his New York Times bestseller, The Hidden Messages in Water.
Dr. Emoto was among the pioneers to demonstrate that water is shaped by our environment, thoughts, and emotions. He explained how water when exposed to loving, benevolent, and compassionate human intentions resulted in aesthetically pleasing and physical molecular formations, while when exposed to fearful and discordant human intentions resulted in disconnected, disfigured, and “unpleasant” physical molecular formations. Furthermore, his research also highlighted that polluted or toxic water when exposed to prayer and good intentions could be altered and restored to its beautifully formed geometric crystals that are found in clean, healthy water. This directly lends credence to the well-known benefits of holy waters of sacred Indian rivers like Ganga and Yamuna.
By using Magnetic Resonance Analysis technology and high-speed photographs, Dr. Emoto presented several photographs of hexagonal water crystals of different shapes and sizes when exposed to phrases of different intentions. In one of his very interesting experiments, he gave a glass of tap water from Tokyo, irregular in molecular shape, to a group of researchers who expressed their gratitude to the water. When later microscopically observed by Dr. Emoto, he found the formation of small hexagonal crystals in the same water.
Dr Emoto hypothesised that water shapes itself differently when exposed to different thoughts, energies and emotions. This is because when we express any emotion, the vibrations emitted from our body coincide with different molecular matter around us including water, shaping its energy in a symmetrical sense.
Though several ancient traditions have spoken about the healing powers of water, Dr Emoto was a trendsetter in attempting scientific experiments to establish the link between consciousness, emotions and water. He also posited that water acts as an absorber or a mirror of human emotions. Just like emotions of gratitude and love leave a sense of contentment or happiness, water crystals reflect the same in a visual sense. And vice versa for negative emotions such as hatred or violence.
It is also pertinent to point out that there have been some controversies about the methodology adopted by Dr Emoto in showing his results and that there was “cherry-picking” to suit specific conclusions. Nonetheless, without deep-diving into those specifics, Dr Emoto’s research certainly opened the field for an exciting set of possibilities, and for a larger understanding of the role of structure of water. The success of his books and the striking visuals served to bring the topic of water and consciousness to the mainstream.
Several scientists and researchers have since engaged in in-depth studies to further this field and enhance our understanding of water. We shall cover more of that in later blogs.

Madhusudan Rajagopalan - Director

Madhusudan is an entrepreneur with rich business and consulting experience. An alumnus of Indian Institute of Technology (Madras) and Indian Institute of Management (Bangalore), he started his career as a management consultant with Accenture Consulting, where he worked on a range of strategy and performance improvement engagements across a wide spectrum of industries. He then co-founded Aranca, a leading provider of research and analytical services to global clients across financial research, business research, intellectual property research and valuation advisory services. As the company’s COO, his role encompassed all aspects of building and managing a global knowledge services business. He oversaw the growth of the company from inception to its position as one of the top independent firms in the industry.
His interest in yoga drove him to study the impact of energy on the mind, body and well-being. Hence, his career naturally shifted towards causes that blend commercial interests with a larger purpose, leading to domains that deal with food, lifestyle and water. This common interest in the cause of water with Eric and Dolf led to his involvement in Water & Light. He also contributes his time and skills to charitable organisations dedicated to selfless service to the world.

Dolf Zantinge - Director

Dolf is an entrepreneur with a background in fibre optics, telecommunication, artificial intelligence and data mining. Early in his career, he co-founded Syllogic, an international IT firm in the domains of AI, machine learning and database management systems. After Syllogic was acquired by Perot Systems, Dolf was European Director for the company. Later, he was the Director of IT at KPN, the largest Dutch telecom company. He founded and chaired UNET, one of the first fiber optics companies in Europe.
From a tech-heavy career, Dolf’s career took an unusual turn when he pursued the study of Chinese medicine / acupuncture and delved into the impact of electromagnetic frequencies on biological systems. This led to further research on photonics, physiology, light, and water. He partnered with Eric to develop the technology to create full spectrum coherent water and measure its positive effects on biological systems. He is passionate about providing holistic and natural solutions to counter the impact of electromagnetic radiation on our health and consciousness.

Eric Laarakker - Director

Eric is a holistic veterinarian, researcher, educator and entrepreneur.
Eric started his career as a veterinarian and soon realised that curing animals (and/or humans) required a much more holistic approach to treatment. After a deep study of several other energetic treatment methods, Eric went on to become the first in the Netherlands to be a veterinarian, acupuncturist and chiropractor. Besides his holistic veterinary practice Den Hoek, Eric is an educator and author, dedicated to spreading knowledge in the domains of holistic treatment. He is also active in the development of products and new treatment techniques.
His interest in holistic treatment naturally led him to the study of water and its role in sustaining all life on earth. After intense research and development efforts, Eric, along with his partner Dolf, pioneered the development of full spectrum coherent water. He is passionate about the cause of rejuvenating all the water on earth to its natural state and uplifting the health of our natural biological systems.
