I have to say I am just as guilty of this as the next person. That is, how I talk to myself. You know that chatter that goes on and on in your head. We can tend to use negative words or berating sentences in our thoughts. Why negative or berating, because it is easy. It is easier to look at the negative side than it is the positive, to think positively takes more effort so we tend not to.
Imagine the thoughts and words that we say to ourselves saying them to our child, Mother, Father, Sister, Brother or Best friend, how would you feel, how would they feel? I am guessing pretty horrible, yet we let ourselves get caught up in negative self-talk through fear and ease.
Dr Masura Emoto was a Japanese businessman and scientist who claimed water could respond to positive thoughts and speech. Dr Emoto's water crystal experiments consisted of exposing water in glasses to different words, pictures, or music and then freezing and examining the properties of the crystals with microscopic photography. Water exposed to positive speech and thoughts would result in beautiful crystals being formed when that water was frozen and that negative music, words or pictures would show ugly crystal formations. He also used different water forms from mountain streams, springs along with polluted water sources.
The results can be seen on the video in this article.
Given the body is made up of approximately 70% water, would our thoughts and words have the same impact on us as Emoto’s experiment? This I think is a question we should all ponder when we start to spiral into negative thoughts and berating sentences. Catch yourself and remember the video images below.
