Some Bleep to Think About

Posted on: June 15, 2011

Dr. Emoto and a beautiful water crystal.

What the bleep do we know about the power of our thoughts and words? I had fun with my previous post, “Up 2 the ‘C’ in Focus,” and then I remembered enjoying the movie, “What the Bleep?”  In this short clip from the movie, the amazing work of Dr. Masaru Emoto is featured. I find his research on the effects of words, thoughts, meditations and prayers on water to be extremely thought provoking.

In 25 words or less (and the previous 5 don’t count), his work illustrates, how positive consciousness projected onto water results in beautiful ice crystals, whereas the negatives result in nasty, germy looking formations. (You know, sort of like that stuff growing in the drain in that gas station bathroom on the interstate.)

Of course, the obvious connection here is the fact that our human bodies are- to a large degree-comprised of water. I’ve seen a lot of debate over exactly what percentage so I won’t go there here.

A few years ago, my then four-year-old daughter had a destructive streak going and she enjoyed breaking everything she could get her hands on. As I gathered up all the mini Disney Princess Christmas ornaments, I found- with growing frustration-that they were all missing body parts. What the bleep??!! Tinkerbell with no wings! Snow White without a head! Belle with no feet! Me with no patience for this!!!

I found myself at eye-level with her (mmm, that really makes those negative comments sink in fast and hard) saying, “I can’t have anything nice! You break all my pretty ornaments!” And as I heard the words spew out of my muzzle I realized I was “affirming” this negative trait in her. Labelling her for history. So, within the next couple of days, I changed my tone, my mind, my story and eye-leveled with her, saying, “You treat all our nice things so gently…blah, blah, blah.” I know, it feels silly at first but the transformation was so worth it!

So, I’m off to take my Giant Sponge of a physical body to the nearest mirror to say some sort of, kind of really nice things…. Mwah, ha, ha! (evil laugh) I’m off to create my next best version of “Quarky-stein!”

I couldn’t agree more and I read this from another author about the power of words from a young age. Good for you turning it around. 🙂 I hope you did as well in the mirror. HA!

And thank-you for your kinds words on my blog post. Loved your words!

Quirky/Quarky Girl:

Having kids really gives you a front seat to the creation process, doesn’t it? I just love hearing your illustrative stories. Please keep ’em coming!!!
