I am publicly letting out this confession! I talk to objects. I call them nicknames, say hi when I am back home and apologize when I do wrong. To me, this didn’t signify any meaning, just a verbalization of my feelings and a way to sort them out. However, I noticed changes based on these conversations. If my car overhears me talking about another car I wish to buy, it breaks down the next day. And Food! I do it all the time when cooking and I notice a real change in the taste.
Getting caught by people talking to things that won’t reply back is awkward, but admit it, we all do it all the time. When your phone takes too long to stream a video on YouTube, when your laptop shuts down without saving your work, when you are begging your car to make it to the gas station. We do it everyday to all kinds of objects. People who play video games, project their anger or stress onto the game or joystick. All these objects won’t respond back but they will let you know when they are mistreated.
Words and Water
Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto, has done one of the most fascinating experiments on the effect that words have on energy in the 1990’s.
When frozen, water that’s free of all impurities will form beautiful ice crystals that look exactly like snowflakes under a microscope. Water that’s polluted, or has additives like fluoride, will freeze without forming crystals. In his experiments, Emoto poured pure water into vials labeled with negative phrases like “I hate you” or “Fear”. After 24 hours, the water was frozen, but not crystallized under the microscope like what was supposed to happen. It yielded gray, misshapen clumps instead of beautiful lace-like crystals.
In contrast, Emoto placed labels that said things like “I Love You”, or “Peace” on vials of polluted water, and after 24 hours, they formed into gleaming, perfectly hexagonal crystals. Emoto’s experiments proved that energy generated by positive or negative words can actually change the physical structure of an object. The results of his experiments were detailed in a series of books beginning with ‘The Hidden Messages in Water’, where you can see the astounding before-and-after photos of these incredible water crystals.
Words and Rice
In another experiment, Emoto tested the power of spoken words. He placed two cups of cooked white rice in two separate mason jars and fixed the lids in place, labeling one jar “Thank you” and the other, “You fool”. The jars were in an elementary school classroom, and they asked the students to speak the words on the labels to the corresponding jars twice a day. After 30 days, the rice in the jar that received constant insults had shriveled into a black, gelatinous mass. The rice in the jar that was thanked was as white and fluffy as the day it was made.
Words and Apples
Lara Potgieter said on her personal account: “Meet happy apple (left) and sad apple (right). These are two halves of the same apple. On 20 May, I put each in an identical container. For the next six weeks, happy apple sang, laughed, danced and meditated with me. I spoke lovingly to it and thanked it for all its appley splendor. During the same period, I spoke a lot of smack to sad apple. I called it a useless, stinking piece of fruit, accused it of messing with my blood sugar levels, and generally gave it a hard time. I also let it listen to Metallica and watch the news. I let the experiment run for as long as I could before sad apple started to become a health hazard. What you see here are the results. Your words, emotions, and intentions are probably (far) more powerful than you realize. Everything is energy. Just saying.”
Now that you know the effect words have on different objects by experiment, you need to change your attitude in using words. How many times a day do we throw our words away? We say things like “I hate my hair”, “I’m so stupid”, and “Such a bad day” all the time. Before speaking out negative words to yourself, people, or objects, think of how these words bring negative energy into our vibration and affect us on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.
