Why did I choose this book/Source:
It was recommended to me through a friend. They kindly loaned me the book. 

What is the book about:
The Hidden Messages in Water is an eye-opening theory showing how water is deeply connected to people's individual and collective consciousness. Drawing from his own research, scientific researcher, healer, and popular lecturer Dr. Masaru Emoto describes the ability of water to absorb, hold, and even re transmit human feelings and emotions. Using high-speed photography, he found that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward it. Music, visual images, words written on paper, and photographs also have an impact on the crystal structure. Emoto theorizes that since water has the ability to receive a wide range of frequencies, it can also reflect the universe in this manner. He found that water from clear springs and water exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns, while polluted water and water exposed to negative thoughts forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors. Emoto believes that since people are 70 percent water, and the Earth is 70 percent water, we can heal our planet and ourselves by consciously expressing love and goodwill

My Review:
I have always believed that words have power and they like magic in our lives. The books starts off of how Masaru Emoto came across the idea of photographing water that has been exposed to different elements. He acquires ans assistant and the exploring begins. They test with words (in multiple languages), music and even television programs. Masaru and his assistant even test different types of waters from different locations.  Publishers were not interested in this book of photographs initially. Masaru also goes on to explain how this relates to our bodies. How are bodies start off as 99% water as a fetus, then when we are born our body is 70% water with a steady slow decrease as we age.

The message is beautiful and supports my belief of words can change your life. If we treat ourselves with love and gratitude, we flourish and bloom. I loved the theory. The most beautiful crystal to me is the one which was exposed to the words red dragonfly (from a Japanese nursery rhyme) as the shapes even look like little dragonflies. Yes it is a pseudo science but life is so much more than facts. This a beautiful book filled with a beautiful message and beautiful pictures.
