Message in a Bottle: The Power Of Intention

I first became aware of the power that words had on simple things like water when I moved to Los Angeles. I love exploring health restaurants and spiritual centers. One of my favorite restaurants, Café Gratitude in LA, has bottles of water for all of their tables. These water bottles are special, though, because every glass bottle has a word etched in the glass, such as Love and Peace. The words are not there for mere decoration, but they are there because they instill the vibration of the word into the water. After seeing these mantras on their bottles, I came across blessed water at the Kabbalah Center on Robertson Blvd. The water was blessed or prayed upon by Rabbis for a specific amount of time, thus infusing the water with the prayers. I even came across plastic bottled spring waters in Whole Foods that had mantras on them. It was clear to me that there was something to all of this—and that there was a trend brewing out there.

I did some research and discovered the works of Japanese author Masaro Emoto, who has studied the effect that words, music and emotions have on the structure of water. His findings are astounding, as I never gave too much thought to the idea that words or music might have any effect on the structure of water. One of Mr. Emoto’s findings was his examination of what water looked like under a microscope from a polluted dam in Japan. The water appeared distorted, dark and lifeless. A Buddhist monk then prayed over the same water for an hour, and the water was reexamined under the microscope to find a completely different image. The water now looked like a crystal structure full of life and light. Mr. Emoto’s research further found the affect that certain music did indeed play a role in the appearance of water. In addition, heavy metal music was found to distort the water, while classical music created beautiful crystal structures. Merely, writing positive words and affirmations on the sides of water bottles had a similar effect, where negative words made the water lackluster and positive words created beautiful formations.

Humans are made up of 70% water, as well as most living things on earth. It is pretty mind blowing to reflect on this concept. Henceforth, it is undoubtedly something to consider by taking more stock into the words and intentions we use in our everyday lives.

  1. Words do create a vibration and the intent behind them especially. The Universe delivers to you exactly the vibrational equivalent of how you feel about what you’re thinking and speaking. So, just as soon as you not only begin to deliberately alter the words you choose to speak, let alone the thoughtst that you are, mostly subconsciously thinking without knowing it and creating unwanted things as a result. There are 2 of you. When you can catch the one doing the wrong thining in the act, the one that’s doing the witnessing is the REAL you…The Unlimited You. So, be gentle on yourself and quickly think of something you can easily mean that you’re grateful for. And the more you do this, the richer and heatlhier and successful and happier and content you get.

  2. How long do you wait after treating water with words before you drink it

  3. This goes with any kind of energy work/intention work…the only true moment is Now. When u feel/believe that it is Done, then it is Done. For me personally, when I write a word on a water bottle, I would like it to sit for a few hours, BUT if I write a word on it and reiki charge the water and say the word to the water bottle..especially in an I AM statement, I feel when I am done charging it, it is ready to drink. So, for water u won’t be drinking immediately, u can just write on the bottle. For water u are going to drink right then and there, pray over it, do reiki, speak to the water for everything IS consciousness at its core and although water may not be self-aware, it IS conscious.
