Review

A blend of science and spirituality marks Masaru Emoto's lovely "The Secret Life Of Water", which links the search for happiness and serenity with the life of water on this planet. From interviews with healers and shamans whose powers have changed the shape of water itself to photos of water crystals and cycles of water and life, it's hard to easily peg "The Secret Life Of Water" -- but it will often find its way onto the science shelf and from there into the welcoming hands of spiritual readers as well.

-- "Midwest Book Review", May 2006

About the Author

Masaru Emoto is an internationally renowned Japanese researcher who has gained worldwide acclaim. Emoto is a graduate of the Yokohama Municipal University's department of humanities and sciences with a focus on International Relations, and he receive certification as a Doctor of Alternative Medicine from the Open International University.

Emoto's research has visually captured the structure of water at the moment of freezing, and through high-speed photography he has shown the direct consequences of destructive thoughts and the thoughts of love and appreciation of the formation of water crystals. The revelation that our thoughts can influence water has profound implications for our health and the well-being of the planet.

Masaru Emoto has written many books, including the New York Times bestselling The Hidden Messages in Water, and his books have been published in twenty-four languages.

Before getting to the substance of my review, I'd like to point out that this book is very attractive from a physical standpoint, with beautiful, color photographs on high-quality paper. As such, the reading experience itself was quite enjoyable.

On a substantive basis, this book is an exploration of water and the impact of the subtle energies of Hado, a force that is present in all things. Masuro Emoto has blazed a trail in the study of the effect of words, music and images on the formation of water crystals, operating under the hypothesis that negative words create a negative reality in the formation of ugly ice crystals and vice-versa. This is very interesting from the standpoint of the transformation of non-physical concepts (thoughts), into physical form. I've always struggled with the mechanical aspects of manifesting my thoughts into reality, and I think this book explains the process pretty well. Having said this, the author himself points out that his adherence to the scientific method is not strict and that his work is somewhat subjective. He also has a slight tendency to stray far afield, as in his discussion of hemp as a means of alternative energy. In spite of these small complaints, I found the book to be worthwhile and quite fascinating.

This was an incredible book about the amazing pattern of crystals made from water. It was remarkable how the author discovered the process of how to look at and feel the message coming from the fluid of life which is water. You will get a real sense of water beyond what we know through ordinary science. And the pictures of the crystals are just amazingly beautiful. I highly recommend the book for those on their spiritual path. M.K. Cleveland,OH

Everything this man does emanates love, beauty, and truth. The photography, the explanations, the involvement of many people together resolving serious planetary problems with "simple" solutions - all based on love - getting results. Mr. Emoto's work doesn't just give me hope, it gives me absolute confidence that our planetary problems - both local and international - including greed and war - can and will be resolved. How long that will take will depend on how many people are working toward the resolution. I think it is a movement of growing momentum - especially for people who are willing to take personal responsibility.

Masaru Emoto takes the reader on a fascinating exploration into water in its infinitely varied frozen crystaline forms. He demonstrates how water crystals, from their beautifully symetrical to awkwardly disturbing structures, are the byproduct of our glorious and chaotic world. You will also learn how Mr. Emoto and his scientists are able to manipulate and predict the ice crystal's form by subjecting droplets to both positive and negative stimuli. This book gives a whole new meaning to the ripple effect.

'The Secret Life of Water', when you compare it with Emoto’s first book, 'The Hidden Messages in Water', is something like the scientific back office of water research.

Here, Emoto really explains what hado really is, this strange concept that seemingly was unknown in our own culture until very recently, except among natural healers and clairvoyants. Yet it is a very old concept, part of the treasure of ancient Japanese wisdom, and thereby part of perennial science.

Once I got familiar with this knowledge tradition, I found a number of other books about hado, as for example sending out hado by deliberate intent for healing, or learning the hado of cooking. Myself a passionate chef, I always wondered how it is possible that two people using the same recipe, and the same kitchen for cooking the same food can end up with cooking food that tastes differently. While the dish may even look the same, the taste is different. The Japanese say that the cook whose dish tastes better has a better or more sublime hado. I found books how to deliberately improve your cooking hado so as to cook better-tasting food, while you may cook the same food that you always cooked before.

This is not all about hado, it’s just a starting point. From about page 50 of the book, Emoto expands about healing with hado. And he has collected amazing examples from all over the world, and from different researchers, to prove his point. He envisions what he calls hado medicine becoming one day the medicine of the future. He writes:
—All symptoms of illnesses vibrate at a unique frequency. By knowing the frequency, it is possible to overlap the exact opposite wavelength on top of the symptom’s wavelength; thus, the frequency of the illness is dissipated and the symptoms are alleviated.

Thought provoking and definitely outside of the box. This book isn't just about "water" but everything that we are: psychologically, socially, physically, spiritually and beyond. This books is another voice in the choir that sentience exists on all levels, and that respect and kindness (and conversely cruelty and disrespect) affects everything small and large, whether we can see it with our naked eyes or not.
