summertime

7 Nov

Summertime is spreading her wings.  Rehearsing for the change of seasons which is almost upon us, and giving us a teasing taste of days to come.

The air is heady with the living green scent of the world.  It is thick to breathe in, and full of heat and steamy summer smells.

The days are longer, and the mornings are brighter, and somehow you have more hours in every single day.

Everywhere the atmosphere is changing, preparing, livening.  People on the streets wear flip-flops and singlets and they bare their legs.  The smell of cooking barbeques wafts in the evening air.  And the slightest breeze is a sighing relief.

Aaah, summer!  Time to watch the world ripen, and to covet the luxury of cool fresh water and to squeeze every extra minute out of every extra day.

Water Crystals – the impact of music and intention on water and on us

20 Aug

These experiments by Masaru Emoto on the effects of music and words on water are truly amazing.  As human beings are made up of 70% water it makes sense that we would be dramatically effected as well, which explains some of those deep down reactions you have to the sounds around you and the words you listen to.

In this study water from around the world was slowly frozen to form crystals (each one unique of course like any snowflake); where the water was from would change the crystal structure.  When the water was clean and healthy it formed beautiful crystals, when it was polluted it was as if it couldn’t make any structure to the crystal at all.

Then they introduced music.  We all know music makes us feel and we naturally gravitate towards sounds that make us feel full and joyous and strong, and we flinch when music seems to grate against us.  Water does the same.  They exposed water samples to different music before crystallisation, the intricate forms of the crystals responded to the sounds; most were variations of delicate beauty, but a few like heavy metal were fractured.

As this continued they then considered positive and negative language, samples were left over night with words or phrases in various languages before being crystallised.  Positive sentiments like thanks and love formed elaborate and lovely crystals, while negative statements like killing and disgust so distorted the crystals they were like polluted water.

The next time you feel an instinctual reaction to sound or even to thought, remember you are mostly water and water has great sensitivity to the stimulus around it.

Aim to be positive, healthy and surrounded by that which gives you joy.  When this is not possible, then just give yourself as much stimuli as you can find to give you a clear and beautiful inner soul.  We do all need darkness to appreciate the light.  Focusing on things that make you feel more complete will simply help you see the world in full, and make your water sing.  Be intricate and whole, choose to think positively and enjoy beauty.
