Are Your Thoughts Making You Sick?

Are your thoughts making you sick?

The connection between the mind and the body is more powerful than many of us realize. For true healing to take place, it often has to occur on both an emotional and spiritual level as well as a physical and mental level.

It’s easy to say all of this, but another way to look at it is that our body is over 60% water. This is important to understand because Dr. Masaru Emoto, who passed away recently, made some interesting observations about water crystals.

He observed that when you prayed, blessed or spoke positively around water, the crystals would take on beautiful shapes and patterns.

However, when the crystals were cursed, yelled at or spoken negatively to, they appeared broken, damaged and deformed.

Dr, Emoto also conducted a similar experiment using a combination of cooked rice and water.

He placed the rice and water into two different jars, one labelled “Thank You” and the other “You Fool”, he also had a control jar that had no label.

He then instructed students to hold the jars for a few minutes each day while thinking positive thoughts for the ‘Thank You’ jar and negative thoughts for the ‘You Fool’ jar. The jar with no label was to be ignored.

The children did this experiment for thirty days and found that the rice in the “Thank you” jar remained intact whereas the rice in the “You Fool” jar became rotten and black.

People around the web have also tried this rice experiment for themselves (and you can too!)-

We all know that water is made up of two atoms of hydrogen and one of oxygen, however as you can see from the images, it appears that the structure of water is highly sensitive to the energy around it.

Our words and thoughts hold a powerful vibration, which are clearly able to shift the delicate geometric patterns of water molecules and when you consider that our bodies are more than 60 percent water, it is easy to see how our thoughts can also influence our health.

Every thought that you have is shaping the water crystals in your own body and as the rice experiment showed, positive thoughts give rise to a health and longevity, whereas negative thoughts cause sickness and decay.

From his experiments, Dr. Emoto concluded that human consciousness is able to directly effect physical realities and that positive thinking is truly a powerful healer.

Here are some more examples-

While it can be hard to control every thought that comes in and out of our minds, we can take steps to be more consciously aware of negative thoughts when they arise.

The easiest thing to do when you notice a negative thought is to accept it, acknowledge it and let it go.

It may also help to turn it around into something positive or to adopt a mantra such as- “I love myself and know that everything is working out in my favor and for my highest good.”
