Using high-speed photography, Dr. Masaru Emoto demonstrates that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. Water that flows from clear springs or has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns, while polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, forms incomplete, asymmetrical, dull-colored patterns. Since humans and the earth are composed mostly of water, these findings have...
