Facts that you always wanted
to know about water

The Emoto Project: How Love, Hate and Ignorance shaped my Water! 🦠

Have you ever heard of the Japanese pseudoscientist Masaru Emoto, who claims that human consciousness can influence the molecular structure of water and that words can affect the quality of rice in a jar? When I saw the tests on Social Media, I wanted to try it for myself.

Spoiler alert: It worked. Watch the video below to the end to see the astonishing results.

Three glasses with stickers Love, Hate and Ignore. Emoto Test

What was my approach?

First, I wrote the words " Love," " Hate," and " Ignore" on the stickers that I put on the three glasses. Then I added fresh lemon juice and water. I covered the glasses with plastic wrap and put them on the shelf.

For the next 30 days, every time I passed by, I treated them as follows:

  • I told the glass with the " Love " sticker how beautiful it was.

  • I gave the glass with the "Hate" sticker my bad energy and told it that it was bad and ugly.

  • I completely ignored the glass with the "Ignore" sticker.

Not much happened in the first few days.

But then this happened. After a few days, mold formed on the surface of the lemon water in all three glasses. In the "Love" glass it was only a little, while in the "Hate" glass significantly more mold formed. But the "Ignore" glass had by far the most mold development.

Three glasses from above. After a few days, light mold has formed.

The result after 30 days

As the mold continued to grow over the next few days, the results became even clearer. As you can see in the picture, the "Love" sample developed the least amount of mold, while the "Ignore" sample developed the most. It is also easy to see that the glass with the "Hate" sticker developed the darkest mold color. Since the results were already obvious, I decided to stop the project after 30 days.

My conclusion

As other projects with the rice sample have shown, words, energies and vibrations can influence objects. The most interesting conclusion for me is that ignoring an object can be worse than expressing hate, and that the negative influence turns the mold black.

I admit that the way I conducted the test may not be scientifically accurate. That wasn't my intention. It was more of a test to see what would happen. But now that we see the results, we can use them as an opportunity to think about how we should treat people, animals, and our food. Maybe the results make you think about someone you've been ignoring for the last few days, weeks or years. Then maybe now is the time to get over yourself and get in touch with that person.

With that said: Drink water, #spreadlove
