About the Author
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.

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.
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.Read more ›

Book is about BS...total BS. The author sells this fake water....no peer review...Published 10 months ago by joliett
The book is just very vague and tries to cover too many things in a short book. The water crystals only form for a matter of seconds and aren't even consistent. Read morePublished 15 months ago by TrailMix
