Born July 22, 1943 in Yokohama, Japan, Dr. Masaru Emoto was widely considered one of the most influential leaders of water research, spirituality and consciousness. He brought this generation a new understanding of the power of our thoughts, words, and intentions, and our ability to influence the quality of our personal lives and our environment.
He gained worldwide acclaim through his groundbreaking research and the discovery that water is deeply connected to our individual and collective consciousness. His water-crystal resonance research consisted of exposing water to different vibrations and then freezing and examining the aesthetics of the resulting water crystals with microscopic photography.
His stunning water-crystal photographs have enchanted millions of people across the globe. His documented research has shown that thoughts, words, emotions, prayer, and music have a direct effect on water-crystal formation, and since our bodies and our planet are mostly water, our thoughts and words affect not only ourselves, but also the world around us.
For over 30 years he shared his message of the power of love and gratitude in creating peace on our planet through his understanding of water’s true nature. The message of his work is that waters memory and resonance, and the connection to the water in all of us, and our planet, will help bring peace to all humankind.
