IKEA, Bullying and Masaru Emoto



I've been fascinated for a long time by the work of Masaru Emoto, and consider myself fortunate to have seen him many years ago when he visited Melbourne.  Emoto exposed water to different words, pictures, and music, froze the water and took photos of the resulting ice crystals using microscopic photography.  He also took samples of water from pristine locations, and polluted environments, photographing the resulting crystals.  There are lots of images and videos of his work available on the internet, some are incredibly beautiful, others not so.

Emoto believed that energy influenced the structure of the water, and the more I learn of quantum physics and associated topics, the more I'm beginning to understand of the power of thoughts, words and deeds, both positive and negative.

I was recently reminded about the work of Emoto when I saw the above social experiment conducted by IKEA, trying to raise awareness on the effects of bullying.  Although many doubt the authenticity of the work of Emoto and the experiment by IKEA, my understanding of this world is that 'everything is energy'.  Vibrations and frequency are things we are still learning about.  In the meantime, I'll continue to practise loving kindness as many wise masters and guides have taught us.
