Remarkably, alternative healer Dr. Masaru Emoto believes he has discovered proof that the thoughts, intentions, and words of human beings significantly affect the physical world. Emoto argues that, “HADO creates words. Words are the vibrations of nature. Therefore, beautiful words create beautiful nature. Ugly words create ugly nature. This is the root of the universe.” HADO means “wave” or “move,” and it is the minutest unit of energy—and the basis of the energy for human consciousness.
Emoto claims that water is a reflection of human beings; this theory has the potential to be revolutionary. More specifically, water is said to be a reflection of human words and thoughts. Even though Emoto’s critics have labelled him as a pseudo-scientist, he continues to strengthen both the tone and depth of his arguments.
Emoto’s books, seminars, and presentations all make his position clear, and his insights pertaining to the effects of human interactions with water made it into a popular movie called, “What the Bleep Do We Know?” In 1999, Emoto sold millions of copies of his book titled Messages from Water; it outlines how what human beings say, feel, and listen to impacts water. Since human beings are comprised of 60% to 75% water, if positivity can enhance the behaviour of water, then it can likely enhance the behaviour of people.
“If you have a peaceful mind and peaceful thoughts, water becomes more peaceful.”—Dr. Emoto
Emoto’s rice experiment is featured in the above video; rice is put into three glass beakers, the beakers are filled with enough water to submerge the rice, and each beaker is faced with a different type of emotion from Emoto himself. Emoto says, “thank-you,” to the first beaker, “you’re an idiot,” to the second beaker, and nothing at all is said to the last beaker. One month later, the thanked rice had fermented and released a nice smell, the offended rice had turned blank, and the ignored rice had begun to rot. Emoto likens the rice to children; human beings must interact with their children in positive and attentive ways in order for them to respond positively in turn. Emoto argues that this is the power of positivity at work, and his video has gone viral worldwide.

Yet, whether you believe Emoto’s theory or not, it’s difficult to argue with his recommendations; it should go without saying that all parents should strive to interact with their children positively, and also that negative parental behaviour is oftentimes reflected in children’s behaviour. What’s more, psychologists have demonstrated that outlook and actions have significant impacts on the human body.
