Bad Moods And Good Energy In Homes Food And Water

Updated on February 7, 2014

There have been numerous studies done on homes, food and water retaining emotions and the results have been astonishing. Houses, the food we eat and the water we drink all hold energy of moods past.

Albert Einstein said, “Everything is energy and that is all there is to it.”

Seeing Is Believing

This may sound far-fetched to some of you but there has been too many scientific studies validating these findings to overlook them as indigenous superstitions. If you’ve ever gone into a house or building and felt creepy or on edge it could be because something bad happened there. You might not know why or have any idea it just feels wrong. Some of us are more in-tune and able to pick up on this than others.


For centuries the Chinese have believed that our mood when preparing food is essential to the outcome as well as the digestion of the recipient. If you eat a meal cooked by a person who is angry, sad, or resentful you won’t enjoy your portion near as much as you would having eaten dishes served and made by people who are in a good mood or better yet happy. You may get indigestion or feel uneasy after eating; this could be because the cook was not well emotionally or mentally.

China isn’t the only country with these beliefs. African and Native American people are also aware that juju or mood is transferred into what we make and where we live. Our well-being or the lack there-of is absorbed into the product we are preparing and the structures where we work and live.

I wouldn’t want to eat anything that came out of Hell’s Kitchen, there is too much anger and frustration in the food.


You’ve heard of haunted houses and whether you believe in ghosts or not it has been proven that houses and buildings retain emotions or energy.

Trent Reznor is said to have bought the house where Sharon Tate and family were murdered by Charles Manson and his followers. He wrote a lot of dark songs while living there and attributes his muse from the vibes he got from the house. The home was later demolished.

Strong emotions give off an emotional residue. Studies have shown that when entering a home or room where a major event has occurred, the place will have an atmosphere of joy, fear, anger or sadness.

Homes sold due to divorce or death are often resold many times. The new owners never quite feel good about the place so they sell and move on. There are bad emotions attached to the place even though the buyers never know its back story.

People will subconsciously avoid a place where tragedy has happened that is why a business will often fail after a murder has been committed on the property.

Feng Shui

Pronounced “fung shway” is the art of arranging furnishings and other things in our life to achieve positive qi pronounced “chee” and means energy. It is believed that the way we position our belongings and even the buildings where we live or work can have an impact on our mood and prosperity.

Some think it is silly superstition but others follow the practice religiously. It is based on the sun and moon and the magnetic pull of both. The moon affects the tides, births as well as emotions. It has been known for years that the sun has a strong impact on our mood.

There are many books and videos on this practice if you want to learn more about this art.


This study has the most physical evidence of emotions leaving behind residue. Dr. Masaru Emoto has done extensive experiments on water after being exposed to music, speech and even pollution. Water is life and energy and retains emotion. This may be why our food holds mood since there is water in most foods we eat.

Dr. Masaru Emoto has written books and given talks on his findings. You can find videos on YouTube showing some of his pictures; I’ll share one below.


It is well known that the mood of the creator makes a big difference in the outcome of the piece whether it is music, writing, sculptures or a painting. Some of the greatest works of art have been produced when the artist was under duress. Look at musicians or painters most celebrated pieces and then read about the person’s emotions while working on their creation. Strong emotions bring out vibrant work.

Moods Are Contagious

Most of us know that when one of us is in a bad mood everyone else soon becomes agitated. Now you know that not only do the people around you absorb your anger but so does the food you are cooking, the walls around you as well as the water you drink. Keeping a good attitude is best for our own health as well as the ones we live with and the future generations who will reside in your home.

Meditation can help keep our minds serene.

Removing Bad Energy

You can pay someone to come into your home and remove the negative vibes but you can also do it yourself. Native Americans have been smudging or burning sage for generations to get rid of bad energy. They say a chant along with carrying a smoking bundle of sage brush throughout the home.

You can replicate this by burning sage, saying positive words or prayers; recite happy poetry or play joyful or peaceful music. Any of these things will help eliminate the negative energy in the home. Make sure you keep happy energy flowing by being in a good mood and thinking good thoughts as much as possible. Staying upbeat will transfer positive energy to your home.

If it’s really bad some just tear down the house and start over but the emotions may go deep into the earth so that may not be enough.

      It is no coincidence that I found this hub today. I am fascinated with universal energy and the power of our thoughts. During my meditation this morning I was unusually tense and I know that it has a lot to do with the negative energy my wife and I have been building in this house over things like finances and such. We just bought this house and I don't want that junk in here. I was unaware of the affect on food and water. That was interesting. I see some smudge sticks in my future.

      Relationshipc, it is amazing how that works. Sometimes we just get a bad feeling about a place. I also agree about food made with love, it just tastes better.

      I totally believe this – and I gotta say, no wonder food made with love always makes me feel loved. :)

      My husband and I have always been in tune with the vibes we get from people and places. When we first walked into our house, we felt at peace and we knew we wanted it. It has always retained that positive vibe, and we try to make sure we retain a positive vibe to keep it that way.

      Since moving in four years ago, the house across the street that has been sold over four times, and we know that it has something to do with the atmosphere in the house. We also think the energy attracts a certain type of family to move in – always been a family with a few kids, unhappy as a whole, and disrespectful as a whole, even though it is a very nice house. I think the energy fits their vibe and they resonate with it, which is what makes them buy it.

      Thanks for reading, Rajan Jolly. There is much to be learned on the subject of energy.

      Very interesting read and I'm certainly aware of the good/bad energy vibes that one feels towards people and places. There is certainly much more to mood and energy and their relation to us and our well being.

      Voted up and interesting.

      Praying before eating does help even if you are thanking the animal and plants that gave their lives for your meal as some native cultures do.

      This is a very interesting hub. I have heard that one should never eat when angry because the strong negative emotion affects digestion, etc. I think this why we say a prayer before eating as it blesses the food and this then sends good energy into our bodies. I also wrote a feng shui hub because I really believe in the flow of energy through our environments. Thanks!

      ImKarn, whether we believe in a greater being or not there is energy around all of us.

      Teaches, many people follow that practice with great results.

      I do believe energy fields exist and can affect moods. I find that positive response makes a difference. Prayers are what I use to change the atmosphere in the home and beyond. Great article.

      i have never been able to talk myself into any religion - and yet - the powers of the universe i feel every single day! I couldn't agree more that energy is everything - and everywhere. Look at some farmers these days that are bringing up their cows and chickens to be slaughtered - lovingly - giving them names - and fresh air and room to move...

      It'll keep us all healthier - i believe it!

      Too many odd things have happened to me for me NOT to believe that all things are possible - maybe even peace...

      (ok, i'm pushin'

      love your 'perception', dear..

      Thanks, fpherj48. Not everyone believes this but after they see scientific proof they start to come around.

      Pam...This does not sound "far-fetched," to me, in the least. It's all very valid and real. Thanks for bringing this out, for your readers to contemplate. Albert Einstein was 100% correct...."and that's all there is to it."...UP+++

      Voting up! awesome hub.

      It's true, when you're around other moody people, somehow it gets you in a bad mood too. I agree with your points. I practice feng shui. I apply it to my bedroom, work space and home. It's funny cuz I'm always rearranging my furniture around and adding decorative pillows & a lot of Burgundy red colors, which are supposed to attract love. I recently added a bagua mirror, You have to hang it above main door. It's supposed to repel negative energy. I also believe in good energy from food and water. Love is the secret ingredient when it comes to cooking. Add some candles and set the table nicely, put some music and it sets the mood. It does make a difference.

      Pam, you have broken it down beautifully, and I applaud you for it.

      Confession time...

      I had a friend who had these bottles of water. Each was labeled with a different emotion. He followed the principles outlined in your hub. Because I didn't know better, I thought he was nuts!

      Come to find out, in my more recent odyssean wandering, I've accumulated a great deal of knowledge, especially from my dear wife, as to the belief system as well as science that support these ideas.

      When I take it back in my mind all the way to the original Garden, it makes wonderful sense. There was definitely a living interplay between man and his earthly paradise. Interpolating forward into the realm of modern day architecture, it follows perfectly that the moods within a building--past and present--definitely maintain residence long after their human sources have passed on.

      Next time I'm in the midst of an argument with my wife, I'm resolving here and now to use this hub reminder as a stop sign.

      Aloha, and mahalo for writing this wonderful piece.

      I always knew that homes can retain the emotions and energy of those who have lived there. I didn't know about foods and water though. This was a very interesting hub.

      Voted up and interesting.

      Everything is energy and artifacts and humans both positive or negative energy. Great read!

      I don't believe this is far-fetched at all. I have always believed in the energy fields that surround us all; the world is one big fluctuating energy field, so it makes sense that people give off a certain energy as do buildings. Very interesting hub.
