The Untold Truth about water memory & Dr Masaru’s Emoto “What the Bleep Water”
About feelings (love, contentment), prayer and … water memory, ionized water, water crystals as they were captured by Dr Masaru Emoto and the movie “What The Bleep”.

The amazing film, “What the Bleep” awakened countless thousands of ordinary people to the possibility of a quantum existence; the realization that things may be happening simultaneously on many planes of existence, encompassing all possible outcomes. It was an extraordinary film from a daring and visionary director and producer.
One of the most outstanding images in the film were the subway pictures of Dr Masaru Emoto`s magnified water crystals, because they appeared to assume perfect ice-crystal-like form when exposed to positive thoughts of love and compassion. The inference was obvious; that the expression of love and compassion can alter reality at an atomic level.
Anyone who has read Deepak Chopra`s books would already be familiar with this concept. He describes it as the point where energy becomes matter. In my years in India I found a teaching from the Kashmir Shaivites, the predecessors of Buddhism, called the Spanda Karikas.
In the Spanda Karikas, reality as we see it was described as a continual `flashing forth` or energy in the form of God. If we were to slow down this continual and repetitive `flashing forth` of what we might call slides of reality, we might see that not only do they manifest on this plane, but on all others at once, and that it is merely our attachment to this plane that causes us to experience where we live. Heady stuff indeed, especially when you consider that this theory is almost identical to the core lessons of “What the Bleep”, espoused by some of the more daring scientific minds of our time.
The Spanda Karikas were laid down by yogis sitting in meditation, yogis who had never seen a car, much less a nuclear reactor, the internet or microscopic photos of water crystals. In such basic circumstances, their brilliance of perception and insights into the holographic nature of existence, seems to me to be all that greater than someone who today has the support of the greatest array of available data and research in the history of civilization.
So when I see the wonderful concepts in !What The Bleep! I remind myself of the old Yogis sitting alone in a cave in the Himalayas who had already worked these things out!
Back to the Bleep Water. Dr Masaru Emoto has now conducted thousands of experiments on water from many places and has found that in many cases, water seems to assume a beautiful crystalline structure when prayed over, or even when it has had words like `Love` stuck to a bottle. This is indeed a wonderful idea, but there is a danger in extrapolating Mister Emoto`s findings to include waters that have not been prayed over or emotional affected.
The argument goes like this:
Mister Emoto`s water samples, when prayed over, assume a beautiful crystalline form. Therefore waters with beautiful crystalline form are beneficial waters. But what about the trillions of snowflakes that fall gently from the sky, each with a perfect and unique crystalline form? How were these water crystals able to assume this amazing form and yet not be prayed over?
To take it a little further, if for instance, a magnetic field could restructure water into a perfect crystalline structure, should we therefore assume it was more beneficial, or had the energy of Love imprinted in it?.
It`s clear that many of us would dearly love to believe that if we had crystalline formed water, we may experience more love in our life, or any of the other wonderful emotions and effects Mister Emoto used to create his specimens. But just as clearly, water with crystalline structure isn`t necessarily imbued with any of these attributes.
So what does cause a water to restructure into this crystalline format?
Well, without getting too technical, it all depends on the negative charge in the water. This means that the water holds enough negative hydrogen ions to restructure itself into an eight-sided matrix rather than the smaller matrix of ordinary H2O. That`s all! This occurs as rain precipitates from clouds in the form of snow, (in the right atmospheric magnetic field) and in many modern water filters. In fact you can create your own Emoto water with three of the new Neodymium magnets – the sort used in hard drives. Just strap them around your ordinary fifty dollar water filter and they will create a magnetic field through which your water will pass, restructuring itself as it goes. You can do it even more simply. Tape two of these magnets opposite each other on your water pipe under the sink. The magnetic field they create in the water flowing through the pipe will create the same `Emoto` effect. Total cost: $20 at the most. There are plenty of Neodymium magnet suppliers on the net.
Of course seeing this crystalline structure is much harder than getting the effect. It requires Mister Emoto`s special water freezing process to be able to see a sample of your water in this form. This requires you to send it to Japan plus rather a larger outlay for the testing. However there is a way to see whether your water is what I`d call Emoto water, and it doesn`t take a trip to Japan.
The reason the water changes its crystalline form is the abundance of negative hydrogen ions in the water. These are ordinary hydrogen atoms that have become negatively charged as a result of the magnetic field. Because of this charge, they force the oxygen in the water to bond in a bigger structure or matrix. It is this structure you see in Mister Emoto`s beautiful pictures. So if you have lots of hydroxyl ions in your water, you can be sure that your water would, if you could see it, be like Mister Emoto`s water.
How do you find this out? You use an instrument called an ORP (Oxidation or Reduction Potential meter) If you are really keen you can buy one for about $100. This meter measures the positive or negative charge in a liquid. The presence of a strong negative charge indicates the presence of a large number of Hydroxyl ions; hence, you have Emoto water.
Ordinary tap water, measured by an ORP meter, will be around +250 millivolts. Some water filters with Tourmaline in their filters, or Neodymium magnets in the filter, will reduce this to close to zero. (Tourmaline has many names including some proprietary Japanese ones, but it is used because it has the ability to emit Far InfraRed energy, which has the same effect as a magnetic field in the restructuring and negative charging of the water.)
This makes the water nicer to drink, but is it better for you? Yes it is. The hydroxyl ion is often referred to as the primal antioxidant. It is what is `caged` in foods that are known as antioxidant foods. So having Hydroxyl ions in your water, no matter how they are created, is fundamentally good.
So if a little is good, is more better? Of course. The wonderful thing about antioxidants is that scientists say that you will take up what your body needs. You won`t overdose. Of course, if your body is heavily positively charged from exposure to other electrical fields such as mobile phones, computer monitors, TV`s etc, it will need more negatively charged Hydroxyl ions. We are, as author Ray Bradbury said, `The Body Electric` and every chemical reaction that happens inside of us is a fundamental electrical one. So in today`s world, we often feel lethargic because we have far too few negative ions in our body. So how do we get more negative ions?
Interestingly, in the experiments I have done, a magnet strapped to the outside of a water filter has consistently performed better in Hydroxyl ion production that some very expensive imported water filters that claim to create restructured water. By measuring and tabulating the results of various combinations of magnets and water filters, I found that few magnetic or tourmaline-only systems brought the tap water lower than zero in millivolts. Practically, what this means is that it is certainly better than tap water, but it still isn`t contributing a net negative charge to your body.
The only way I could get a reading of negative millivolts, which indicated a net negative charge in the water, and far greater volumes of Hydroxyl ions, was by the use of an electronically controlled magnetic field induced in a purpose-built chamber in a standard Jupiter Science Water Ionizer. The computer-controlled magnetic field was strong enough to separate out the positive ions into a separate stream of water. In this way, I received water that was had far, far more negative ions than any other method. To give you an idea, if tap water was +250mv, the best reading of negative charge I saw on a magnetic or Tourmaline water filter system was +50mv, whereas the electronic water ionizer consistently produced water with readings as low as -400mv. In ideal conditions this reading can be over -800mv.
It isn`t necessary to get all technical here. You can simply look at the differences and work it out yourself. The lower the ORP meter reading, the better the Emoto effect. Pity we can`t see it, Maybe Mister Emoto will create a home crystal maker.
In the meantime, if you want crystalline structured water like Mister Emoto`s, buy a couple of magnets and strap them to your cold water pipe. If you want lots of negative ions, buy a water ionizer from IonLife.
