- by Tera Warner and Simon Grisdale (translation and transcription from Japanese) Just the other day I read an article from one of my big spiritual crushes, Mike Adams. He said that we are “a mild earthquake away” from the obliteration of human life on Earth as we know it. *thud* Things in Japan are pretty discouraging right now and it’s affecting us all. There’s a lot of “bad news” circulating about that part of our world. I thought you might appreciate this interview from the heart of Japan where Dr. Masaru Emoto, the author of The Hidden Powers of Water, recently granted us the opportunity to conduct an interview asking about what we can do to turn things around. (It’s a tear-jerker. I haven’t been able to stop crying since I read it. Guess it’s that whole water thing, huh? ) As a single mom of two trying to pave a path to a better world, I need to hear stories of what we can do when we come together in love, hope, optimism and understanding. And I’m pretty tough in my own way. I have looked a few of my own tigers in the eye with a sense of fearlessness before. But there are only so many articles about the potential obliteration of humanity and life on Earth that a girl can take. As you’re about to discover,
Masaru Emoto is a Japanese author and entrepreneur known for his claims that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water. Emoto’s hypothesis has evolved over the years of his research. Initially Dr. Emoto claimed that high-quality water forms beautiful and intricate crystals, while low-quality water has difficulty forming crystals. According to Dr. Emoto, an ice crystal of distilled water exhibits a basic hexagonal structure with no intricate branching. Emoto claims that positive changes to water crystals can be achieved through prayer, music or by attaching written words to a container of water. Since 1999 Emoto has published several volumes of a work titled Messages from Water, which contains photographs of water crystals next to essays and “words of intent.” In addition to his books, Emoto also sells various water products from his websites and catalogs, which are purported to have healing properties derived from his research and experiments.

Interviewer: Thank you very much for taking the time today to do the interview. Dr. Emoto: My pleasure. I: The first question is about you. What did you want to be in the future when you were young? E: Well, it changed as I got older, but in secondary school, I wanted to be the Secretary General of the UN. Before that, I wanted to be a musician. I: So your interest in music came early on. E: Yes, I wanted to be a singer as I’ve always been into my singing. I: What was the reason that you decided to study water? E: When I was around forty-five years old, I started working on my own. Up to that point I hadn’t done anything to do with water but I was interested in ‘subtle vibrations’. I found a machine that measures this in America called MRA, which stands for ‘Magnetic Resonance Analyzer’. Like a child, I took it back home and started to make music with it as if it were a musical instrument. I soon developed a technique of playing it while at the same time gathering information about people’s bodies by detecting the vibrations. This machine was also able to correct any irregular vibrations, by using water. The vibrations make an imprint on the water, which when drunk, has the power to cure many different illnesses. So this is what I did for five or six years. I managed to heal many people afflicted with various illnesses. I wrote ten books on my experiences of vibrations and waveforms at the time. However, back then, no one believed that an illness could be cured from just water, or that water could record information so I was not understood by people. It was then that I got the idea to take photos of crystals in water. Since music and words affect water, I used these results as proof of my discoveries. I: So first it stemmed from an interest in waveforms. E: It stemmed from music first. I had a talent for music, probably from my mother. I didn’t have any training in science, like physics or anything like that. I was good at looking at analysing people’s bodies through music. I: You just mentioned that you are not a scientist in the formal sense of the word, but what are your opinions on the science world today and how they relate to things which are unseen? E: I can’t help but think that the science today is not the real science. We human beings start from a fertilized egg to a baby, then we grow into an adult. There is a design plan to us human beings. If there wasn’t, we wouldn’t know whether to grow into a dog or cat, an animal or a plant. I believe this design plan is actually from a world which cannot be seen. And if we don’t understand this world, then we won’t be able to understand ourselves. Scientists nowadays are only looking at things which are here now. They only look at the make-up and behaviour of an object. That is not enough in my opinion. They are not looking at the source. For example, there are the numbers zero, one, two, three, four, but there are numbers before zero also; minus one, minus two etc. It is this unseen world that until now scientists have been denying the existence of. If we ask what kind of world this is, it is the world of religion. When human beings first existed in the world, we asked why we were here, and started to think of philosophical and religious ideas. I think that in itself was the first ‘science’. It is when people started to ignore this when all the problems we face today started. I: Did your way of thinking change at all after doing this research? E: It didn’t change, no. It confirmed the beliefs I had previously, actually. I: When you look at the world today, there are many problems relating to water. For example, as the world gets more and more urbanized, water sources are becoming more polluted. What does this tell us about ourselves at this moment? E: As you know, the world is practically all water, as is the human body. However, I believe we still know nothing about water. I believe the first thing that science should be concerned with is finding out exactly what water is. At the moment, nothing about water is studied in primary school; it is only until secondary school that it enters the curriculum. This means the basics are not understood, and therefore the many problems that the present day society faces are not being resolved. For example, take the radiation problem which is a big cause of concern in Japan at the moment. Like that there are many problems that we the human race do not understand at all. Earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, floods, etc. We have no idea why any of these happen. I: Is it because we don’t understand the link between our minds and these happenings? E: Yes, we don’t understand our mind and also the mind of Mother Nature. I: You just mentioned the problems in Fukushima. I’m not sure what the exact situation is at the present moment, but after the tsunami, radioactive water was leaked into the sea. What effect does this have on us all in the future? E: This is an extremely difficult situation. This time Japan had this accident, but there are many atomic power stations all over the world. The earth is able to generate these radioactive materials. It holds many different kinds, such as uranium, caesium, and others. When these types of materials assume various forms and come out in to the open, they have a negative effect. For example, with this accident at the power station, it is possible that due to the laws of resonance, the radioactive materials in the power stations around the world and in the earth became activated as a result. In my opinion, radiation acts due to the laws of waveforms. Scientists nowadays, however, do not acknowledge that it does, and therein lies the crux of the problem. I: Even in the face of problems like this, do you believe that we have the power in ourselves to change the situation? E: Yes, I do. I believe not only that a person’s consciousness can change a situation but that everything that is happening today is due to the consciousness of people. Take Einstein’s famous equation, E=mc². Because of energy there is this universe, the earth and us. But what is the real meaning of this energy? Normally ‘m’ means mass, but I believe this ‘m’ can mean the number of people. ‘c’ is taken as being the speed of light, but I take this as people’s consciousness, which has the same speed as light. This is why if you put these together, the number of people multiplied by their consciousness equals energy. Every person’s consciousness is creating energy in my opinion. If we go hundreds, thousands, millions of years back, I don’t know if human beings existed then, but I believe this world exists now as an accumulation of all those years of people’s consciousness. As I said before, this consciousness has the same speed as light. Therefore, considering seven billion people live in the world in the moment; if the consciousness of ten percent of these people, seven hundred million people changed for the better, then I think everyone’s consciousness around the world will change in an instant. This also corresponds to what I heard from an expert in microbes, who said that out of hundred microbes, if ten are good, healthy microbes, ten are bad microbes and the rest are neither, then the rest see which way the wind blows; they will join whatever side is stronger. So in the same way, if there are hundred people and ten or eleven of them have a good quality consciousness, then the eighty people out of the remaining ninety will also become good. I therefore believe that in the earth, inevitably the consciousness will change, and that the energy will become positive. When this happens, any radiation, toxin, virus or any harmful thing will lose their ability to function any more. One more thing is to do with the DNA which is in our bodies. According to experts in hereditary genes, on average, only three percent of DNA is currently being activated. This means that only three parts of a hundred are understood. I believe a person’s memory, their genetic information and water are all inter-connected. Therefore we are only aware of three percent of ourselves because we don’t understand water. If we understand water then our memory, our DNA will also be activated. Once this happens, I believe that energy will thus keep on improving to higher levels until all problems become resolved. I: In the world today, technology has been advancing with great speed. With the invention of the internet, people are able to write words they wouldn’t normally use since they are able to hide their identity. Since words create waveforms, as this increases will it cause problems? E: Yes. There are many people who worry that only the bad things that happen are being picked up by people. But if we were to see how much bad stuff and good stuff there is, I would say there is more good stuff. With the bad stuff, a lot of it is designed to shock, so it is noticed more, but out of all the information gathered from around the world, I would say there is a lot more good information than bad information. A world in which information is not restricted, where people are able to speak freely and say what they want is becoming more possible now. This has only happened in the last five or so years. Until then it was just the media, or the government, people in power, who dictated what information was released. So these people in authority only released information that suited them and, as a result, they created a lot of the instability we see in the world today. Nowadays, however, it has become possible for people with good intentions to get their voices heard. In another couple of years, this balance will have completely shifted. Before, although people in authority could shamelessly slander good people who had merely stated the truth, now there are blog websites like ’2 channel’ in Japan where anyone can write their opinions. It’s a period of transition, but I don’t think there’s any reason for concern. I believe one hundred percent that in essence, human beings are good. I believe that the number of people who have very bad thoughts are less than one percent. I: People tend to be very easily influenced. E: Yes, people may be swayed by charismatic leaders. However, since six years ago I have been carrying out the Emoto Peace project where I go to various places and give my book ‘Messages from Water’ to children for free. The book teaches what the real essence of water is, and that if you use good words they create beautiful crystals and if you use bad words they create ugly ones. I believe this is a quick and effective way to spread peace. I: Going on from the power of words, You have discovered that the words ‘Love’ and ‘Gratitude’ create the most beautiful crystals. Are there other words that we should be also mindful of? E: Definitely. Words like ‘Innocence’, for example will make a beautiful crystal. ‘Peace’, ‘Consideration’, words like that. When we think about it in a simple way, the world, the universe is a work of art. The combination of vibrations is what forms this universe. Vibration is energy after all. In this combination of vibrations, there are ones which have resonance with others, and ones which have non-resonance with others. For example, on the piano keyboard, C, E and G will make a nice harmony. C, F, A and A, D, G also. These sort of sounds together make a beautiful energy which we can pick up with our ears. If, however, we hit C and D together it makes a dissonance. This has a destructive energy. Harmonies like C, E, G and C, F, A have a constructive energy. When God had in mind to create something great, that which has constructive energy was the building block, because with destructive energy you can’t create anything. So originally when the universe and this earth was created, only beautiful energy was present. And the essence of this energy is love and gratitude in my opinion. Love is the energy which you give. Gratitude is the energy to receive that love. Yin and Yang, plus and minus- if there isn’t an energy to receive love then things cannot be created. Because I believe water is the messenger of God, I believe the essence of water is made up of love and gratitude. Take the chemical formula of water, H2 O. The O is oxygen, but I see it as love. The H is hydrogen but I see it as gratitude. So one part of love and two parts of gratitude, this is the real meaning of water in my opinion. So when the words love and gratitude are shown to water, it is the most happy. There is resonance; ‘yes that’s right, that’s right’, it’s saying and makes a beautiful crystal. So why is it one part to two? Why is the giving part one and the receiving part two? The reason this makes a good balance is because if it was just one part to two, then things would not progress. When love is given once and gratitude is received twice, the energy continues on and on. For this reason I believe H2 O is the chemical formula for water. I: In regards to music nowadays, modern classical music for example uses a lot of dissonance. In the past there were composers such as Mozart who were making beautiful harmonies- will music go back to creating pleasant harmonies again? E: I believe the wavelength emitted from the society at the time has a big influence. In Japan after the war, it was a tough time. No jobs, nothing. Surprisingly though, the songs that were popular at the time were cheerful songs. It was music that was designed to offer comfort to those who were depressed. In New York, as lots of different races were mixed together, a different type of society with different sorts of relationships between people was created. In so doing, a different sort of music was created, ‘modern jazz’. It was a sort of music that reflected the social situation at the time. Inside that type of music, there was obviously bad music too. Really energetic, noisy music. I don’t think rock n’ roll is bad, but some types of it I feel there is a destructive energy which tries to destroy things in the world. I: In your research, what do you want people to learn most of all? E: From water, I want people to learn to love, to express gratitude. Since water is in all things, we can express this love and gratitude when relating to all things. When we really do this, the energy of this thought gets connected to our real parent, God. When this happens, we start to see the remaining ninety-seven percent. At present, there is three percent. Do a bit more study and it goes up to five percent. A little more understanding and it goes up to ten percent, fifteen percent and so on. And in that, an amazing quality of energy is created, which then changes all the many problems at the moment in an instant. In the world today, there are of lots of things we wish to know, mysterious things. Every time we search for and discover these things we can experience so much joy. I: Is there a particular routine that we should do everyday? E: Yes,as I said before, try and express love and gratitude in your life. Obviously relationships with people can be complicated in this world and you can lose your temper. But this will always come back to yourself. These two words are enough to keep in mind, in my opinion. Love and Gratitude. Love and Gratitude. I: Last question, this Summit is called WISH summit which stands for Women’s International Summit for Health. What wish do you think women should have in this present age? E: That’s quite a difficult question. (laughs). Well, first of all, I don’t know if it is necessary to differentiate between men and women. In the beginning, I don’t think there were men and women - it doesn’t apply to the Creator. Then people started to live in a way that was against the Creator’s wishes, which is when age and death occurred. I believe there was no such thing as age for people in the beginning. From that point onwards, we became a type of animal, and our lifespan was for a couple of hundred years, before it gradually started decreasing. When this happened, like the other animals we were divided into male and female, in order to continue the lineage. Originally, I believe the female is closer to the true nature of the human being. So if women can hold important roles in society such as politician or company president, or academic, then they will be appreciated more and more. Ultimately it would be good not to have to make a distinction between men and women. For any person, to go about one’s daily life with a sense of ‘mission’ would be the best in my opinion. I: And how about you, Dr. Emoto, what is your greatest wish? E: Well, there are so many parts in the world where if we go on as we have been, the future is very bleak, but I believe it is important for the whole world to believe in the same thing, one theme. According to the country and people, there are differences in history, skin colour, political system, and so on. If you start expressing your opinion on various things such as territory, conflicts arise. So we have to ask- what is it that the human race all share with each other, that everyone needs in order to survive? That is water. Well, water and air. Although I think air and water are really the same thing. Light as well, of course; all of these are connected in my opinion. But the most tangible thing out of these, is water. It has weight, and it can change shape. So I vouch for putting water in the primary school textbooks of all the countries in the world. I want to show how water carries information. My earnest wish is for people to keep doing things to ensure all children in the world learn about this fact. Then everyone will realise that we are all the same.
I: Thank you once again for taking the time out to do this interview, it was very interesting.
E: Thank you very much, it was my pleasure.
Please leave your comments below. I feel this is one of the most important interviews I have ever read or had the privilege of facilitating. Please do let me know what you think. Thanks so much.
