Water: Is It Simply Just a Clear Liquid?

Updated on February 22, 2014

Did you ever wonder about the simplest thing out there: water?

Like, why does it do what it does...

  • It can knock down buildings if there's enough of it...
  • The sound of slow trickling water soothes you and can put you to sleep...
  • When you're in the shower you're likely to sing (which I do or beatbox) but it seems to open your mind...

I've found myself starting a lot of poems in the shower and then repeating the lines over and over in my head so I can write it down when I get out.

Why Does Water Have Such an Effect On Our Minds?

Is it because we're composed of almost 70% water and it stirs up our cells?

Isn't it odd that the earth is about 70% water too? ...and things like a cloud or a watermelon are also about 70% water?

Is it really just liquid harmony pouring over us when we're in the shower? It just sets our mind in line and we can think clearly; we feel all relaxed and just feel altogether balanced.

Bruce Lee once said to "Be Water" ... water can flow or it can crash. When you put it in a cup, it becomes the cup... when you put it in a pot it becomes the pot... so be water, adapt and change to things.

We are mostly water, so we can always be more fluid in our daily lives. Now the phrase, "Go with The Flow" has a bit of a different meaning, doesn't it?

Messages From Water

There was a study done once by a Japanese man named Dr. Masaru Emoto.

He would take bottles of water and then on a piece of tape on the outside of the bottle he'd write words, or he'd just say some words or play music. Things like thank you or love & appreciation.

He was in a very cold room, ready with a powerful microscope to take photos of newly formed crystals on the frozen tap water then he noticed something... from normal tap water beforehand to after he had taped words onto it, said some words or played music all the molecules had changed and the shapes were different depending on what the word was.

Check out his books called "The Hidden Messages in Water" to get more details on this phenomenon.

Here's a couple samples so you can see what I'm talking about:

More From Dr. Masaru Emoto

Now isn't that weird?

It can change into something completely different just from a few words or some music. Just like a few words can effect how we feel inside.

Do the words we hear daily change all the water molecules inside us? I'm beginning to think so.

Isn't it odd how much a word or a sound can change things in your daily life?

So what the hell is up with water?

It's just a clear liquid that everything needs to survive, right?

It's just that simple, right?

No... water is and does so many things and yet it's one of the most common things out there, you wouldn't think it'd be so complex.

Just makes you wonder about the other things out there that actually ARE more complex on the outside.  If something like water, which we find to be so simple, is actually this complex and mysterious then what do we really know about anything if we haven't figured water out yet!?

If you'd like you can watch the short video below for an interview with the man himself, Dr. Masaru Emoto. If you're not convinced, there's an experiment you can try at the end of the video

      I didn't create the image, Randolph Lee... so the word "molecule" was already on there and all the images are of Dr. Masaru Emoto's work and are supposed to show the same thing: frozen water under a microscope.

      When I first saw a video on his work I found it really interesting, but many people have challenged him on his work and wonder why he doesn't disclose all the procedures he used to attain such results.

      A double-study in 2006 administered by Emoto and Dean Radin produced good results but a triple-blind study at another time didn't produce good results. But both studies were based on groups of people focusing positively on the water? So, I don't know how you could really get accurate results with that.

      If they want to prove that it works they should use music, or messages on a bottle, and test it over and over again. If it really does work then there's a lot that can be explained and changed in the world, if it doesn't work then at least it sparked thoughts, ideas and discussion on important aspects in our lives.

      Water and good intentions.

      This is potentially a very powerful message, but reading it carefully one cannot help but notice some very sloppy rhetoric/science. The pretty pictures of the "molecules" are not pictures of molecules, but of frozen water crystals that consist of myriads of molecules. The ugly pictures are pictures of who knows what. What a shame that such potential is wasted or, worse, is the product of borderline calumny.

      Let there be no doubt: Quantum physics opens the world of science to exactly such consciousness changing explorations, but sloppy crap that attempts to hitch a ride on that same magic wagon only drags it down. What a shame!

      Thanks, drsteffan... I'm really into "out of the norm" studies like this and I LOVE water!

      I'll have to look into her books, dallas93444... there are so many people out there spreading good philosophies. I think we're all connected, more so than most think.

      I just saw a documentary about someone hooking a lie detector to a plant and it actually reacting when stress levels were up in the room or when someone went to light a match to burn the plant. Interesting stuff!

      Lynne McTaggart has written books about intent. She suggest we exist in a unity, a relationship - utterly interdependent; the parts affecting the whole at every moment...

      Thanks VivekSri! Sometimes I get inspired to write like this... we'll see what the future holds.

      Absolutely delightful! As I enter my third career in water - love it - water exercise, pure drinking water - all of it! Great Hub!

      Yeah Maddie, I really enjoy the "Eastern" train of thought... Not being brought up in that area it's really interesting to see other perspectives.

      It's true. Energy follows intent. During my massage training, I really noticed the difference between the Western approach in Swedish Massage (body as muscles, fascia, bone, etc) and Eastern perspective in Zen Shiatsu and Thai Massage... body as energy, as emotion, as xi. (Check out my hubs on the subject for more info.)
