It’s True! Evidence That Thoughts Shape Reality

Is there any scientific evidence that shows our thoughts directly influence our physical reality and surroundings? Actually, there is – and this unique research was conducted in the 1990’s by a Japanese author and researcher, Dr. Masaru Emoto.

Dr. Emoto believed, and set out to prove, that human consciousness affects the molecular structure of water.  So, what does this mean?  Consider this: half of the Earth and three-quarters of the human body are made of water.

If human consciousness changes the molecular structure of water; it follows that our thoughts do shape our physical reality.  Dr. Emoto’s research provides photographic evidence of these molecular changes.

Dr. Emoto’s Water Experiments

For his experiments, Dr. Emoto used a combination of a high-powered microscope in a cold room with high-speed photography.  Specific emotions or thoughts were directed towards water and the newly formed ice crystals were photographed in great detail.

The photographs show that positive, healthy emotions like “love” and “gratitude” resulted in the formation of vibrant, geometrically perfect crystals with intricate, snowflake like patterns.  Negative emotions like “anger” or “hate” exposed incomplete, asymmetrical patterns that appeared dull and lifeless.

The quality of the water also had an important effect.  Positive energies directed towards clear, Spring water produced the most desirable results, whereas negative thoughts directed towards polluted waters displayed troubling images.

You can see the results in the images in this video.


Enhance Your Health and Well Being

Try conducting your own experiment by paying closer attention to where your thoughts wander.  Is your inner voice often critical? Do you ever find yourself feeling tired, anxious, ill or even angry and aren’t sure why?  Chances are you are being impacted by both your own thought processes and the energies being emitted around you.

Take a few minutes each day for a week or two to stop and observe your thoughts.  Take note of what you are thinking, where you are and how you feel at the moment. Turn off the TV and step back from social media for awhile. Most people are shocked by how much disconnecting helps improve emotions and mental clarity.

These simple mindfulness exercises can determine how to best improve the energies that surround you and come from you.

We can’t always control the world around us or who and what we come in contact with, however there are many ways to promote positive energies, restore health and shield ourselves from negativity.

One such way combines Dr. Emoto’s water research with the use of gemstones.  Stones have been used for centuries by many cultures for their protective and healing properties.  The combination of specific stones with purified water provides a concentrated source of targeted energy.  Drinking this enhanced water can restore energy and boost your vitality and well-being.

VitaJuwel bottles use gem water to vitalize water using the various attributes of the gems. Stones like amethyst and rose quartz enhance awareness, promote inner calm and open the heart chakra to embrace unconditional love and acceptance.  Gemstones like emeralds and clear quartz help enhance vitality and promote overall improved health.

Sage Smudge

The use of smudge sticks is based in Native American tradition and can help to cleanse and purify your environment. These smudge sticks are made from natural botanicals and are mostly used for cleansing spaces such as homes.  In addition to their metaphysical cleansing properties, these natural botanicals also have an amazing, calming aroma and are perfect for use in soap-making, crafts, scented sleep pillows and more.

How to Use Stones for Healing

Crystal Stones in HandsStones can be used as an aid for all types of healing – mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. All aspects of our being are intimately connected, whether we perceive it or not. When we focus on healing one area, the other corresponding aspects respond in kind.

Have you ever felt sadness after going through something traumatic and noticed that you physically felt heavier, particularly in the chest area? Perhaps it felt hard to take a breath, or like a weight was sitting on your chest. The feeling of a “broken heart” is actually your heart center or heart chakra. The pain of a trauma is so intense you can feel it not only emotionally, mentally and spiritually, but physically as well. This is an example of interconnectedness we have all likely experienced at some point. Fortunately, what we do to heal one aspect of our being will also positively impact our health in other areas.

Stones can be used to help facilitate the flow of energy through our ethereal body and through the chakras, realigning and healing our spiritual body. Through this healing process, we can also release pain or illness in the physical body as well as any negative thoughts or feelings that may be feeding those physical ailments.  It’s a holistic form of healing that embraces the whole being.

There are a variety of stones with many different healing properties. You can work with one at a time, or several depending on your personal needs. There are many different techniques for using stones for healing purposes.

Wearing stone jewelry is a simple way to carry a stone’s healing energies with you throughout the day. Stone jewelry should be cleansed often to purify its energy. Carrying loose stones in your pocket or placing them under your pillow can also expose you to a stone’s energy for an extended time.  Many believe that sleeping with a stone helps facilitate the physical healing properties, since the body works to restore itself at night.

Lay stones on your body during meditation to target healing to specific areas.  As you lay flat, place a stone or stones on your body to correspond with your chakras to cleanse and balance your auric field. You can also lay stones on specific parts of the body that are displaying symptoms.

Shungite Tumbled Stone

With specimens that have dated back almost 2 billion years, Shungite is indeed a very ancient, and powerful, stone.  It is also quite rare, found only in the Karelia region in Russia.

It’s origins are very mysterious and no consensus has been reached by scientists as to how it came to exist on Earth.  Theories abound, from it being the remains of ancient sea life that no longer exist today, to the possibility that it came here via meteorites.  It’s history, mystery and age alone make it a truly special stone to add to your collection, but it is also said to have powerful metaphysical properties.

Shungite is said to have healing properties due in part to antioxidant components called fullereness, a type of natural carbon molecule recently discovered in the 1980’s.  It is believed that these natural healing substances within the stones help them cleanse water and infuse it with healing properties. Since ancient times, locals in its area of origin have known of it’s abilities and used it for water purification.

Today, this stone is being used in an array of products and is also being researched for possible future industrial use as a natural replacement for silicone.  Shungite is even found in some balms and lotions due to its anti-inflammatory and detoxification properties.

This stone’s energy is similar to other black stones like Onyx that absorb and transform negative energies.  Shungite interacts with electromagnetic fields and neutralizes negative impacts from electronic devices.  Keep a piece in your office to help neutralize electromagnetic stress that can lead to chronic feelings of anxiety and even physical illness.

Shungite is an excellent stone to introduce to your spiritual practices as well.  It is grounding, but also amplifies higher vibrational energies, making it ideal to enhance meditation and promote altered states of consciousness.  Use it to improve your intuition for better decision making and well rounded thought processes.

Wearing Shungite promotes feelings of calm and stability throughout the day and can offer protection against negativity from others and within the environment.  Its durability makes it a great stone for jewelry. The jet black color is neutral so that it can be worn with nearly any outfit.

Whether you choose to wear it in jewelry, decorate with it or place some loose stones about to heal your workspace, you’ll love the look and energy of this interesting and versatile stone.
