“What the Bleep do We Know’ featured work by Masaru Emoto on the effects of intention on water crystallization. It is work by only one researcher so who knows how reliable it is – but it does make intuitive sense. [It seems that anyone should be able to replicate it, especially those living in climates with cold winters and a microscope.]
Emoto found that clean water and/or healing intentions (gratitude, compassion etc) leads to the formation of regular and beautiful water crystals.
Impure water and/or non-healing intentions produces less well-formed crystals.
In any case, it is a reminder of the power on intentions – they form our life, our role in the world, and collectively – the (social/ecological) world we live in.
