I grew up in rural NWPA, surrounded in forest. I took an early interest in cryprozoology and sharks and have read many books on various crypto subjects such as Bigfoot and Megalodon over the years. I am not a professional writer or a journalist, but I do the best I can. I have a quirky, obscurely dry and sometimes sarcastic sense of humor than can get me in trouble. Some love me and some hate me, but I am who I am.

I discovered this over at Before It’s News. I could do a lot of speculation and interpretation but I think it’s best left to speak for itself.

This is a small sampling of work from Dr. Masaru Emoto. We begin with a video from his documentary, “The Hidden Messages in Water”:

Now we come to an experiment you can do in your own home. It’s an exercise taken directly from experiments done by Dr. Emoto with everyday rice from the pantry.

1. Take two identical clear plastic or clear glass containers (obviously so you can see through them).
2. Fill each container with approx one cup or so of cooked rice.
3. Seal each container with lid and place on counter in kitchen at least 12 or more inches apart.
4. On a piece of tape, write a positive message such as “I love rice”.
5. On another piece of tape write a negative message like “rice is horrible” .
6. Stick the positive message on one container and the negative on the other. (you can write directly on the containers if you wish)
7. Now, at least once a day as you are in the kitchen, say one or both phrases directly to each corresponding container of rice, but with the emotion that would come with each. In other words, “I love rice” would be said with a happy tone and feeling while “rice is horrible” would be said with anger and disdain.
8. Repeat the phrases each day over a period of at least a couple weeks if not longer.

The results may surprise you. Below you can see examples of this experiment:

Here is a video of a similar rice study done by Dr. Emoto himself:

Finally, an interview with Dr. Emoto regarding his experiments with water:

I plan to try the rice experiment myself and I hope others will as well. I am of the opinion that outlook, attitude and emotion play an important role in how your life is lived as well as how the world around you is affected. On the other side I also believe that those around you can affect you deeply by the way they live, feel and act.

We could go a step further and consider how a like minded group may change the world just by how they think. We could even delve into how this may relate to supernatural and or paranormal occurrences. Many are of the belief that poltergeist activity is most often associated with young females entering puberty. However, for this article, I’d like to keep the focus on Dr. Emoto’s discoveries.

Now some call him a charlatan and a fraud and that’s OK as everyone is entitled to their own opinion. While it may seem like I am personally supporting his thoughts and ideas, that’s not the case. I am merely presenting the information for consumption. In fact, I link to a scathing review of Dr. Emoto in my associated content.

It’s up to each of you to decide for yourself. Do your own research and come to your own conclusions. What do you think?

Thanks to Before It’s News for the tip on this story.

Peenie Wallie’s negative review and opinions and on Dr. Emoto’s experiments

  • I’m trying it this starting this week.  If it doesn’t work then we shall dine on Hate Rice.

  • Valkyrie13

    Any video featuring music by Loreena Mckennitt is a ruse to recruit women to a cult.  I’ll try it but I’m writing “cynical and jaded” on one jar.  At the end of 2 weeks I expect it will have fermented with an attitude and I’ll have some sweet sake.  But it is all pretty cool if true.

  • Jon

    let us know how you guys go with the experiment, if you have any luck i might try it too. I’m agreeable to the belief that our thoughts affect reality. 

  • Rmon

    Okay… I remember his stuff about his hexagonal water and all. Sorry, i think it is all a load of crap.
    His findings are never reproduced by others and he is definitely not taken seriously by the scientific community at all. You can think all you want about science but if his findings were real, many many scientists would conclude the same thing. But they don’t.
    The “proof” of the pictures above is highly doubtful. It cannot be taken seriously if nobody was there to witness/check the process.

    All this Emoto guy wants is to make some buck selling some bullshit water and/or books.

    I do know that positive thoughts can have a “positive” affect on your health, the outcome of endeavors, and relationships, etc etc…not sure how it can be transfered to a remote object such as a cup of rice. But… Jesus told His disciples, after doing various miracles, that they too could do these things and more so long as they had faith. Just not sure faith can operate on cue such as in an experiment… 

  • Scary True

    But does the rice that you love taste better than the rice that you like to hang out with but don’t really see yourself in a committed relationship with?

  • Rmon

    “A better-controlled “triple-blind” follow-up study published in the Journal of Scientific Exploration did not yield positive results|”  (wiki)

    Sorry but this very controlled scientific method proves that these ridiculous claims of Emoto are BS.
    Also, the “dr” appearing everywhere possible, is a perfect example of appeal to authority (or argumentum ad verecundiam), a fallacy.

  • Scott_McMan

     Ramon, glad to see you are delving into this. I saw plenty of debunking out there when I wrote the article.

    I will see how my own test pans out. That said, spoiled rice does not give credence to his theories on water. It’s all quite a stretch but that’s why we are here.

  • Ravyn_Rozensztok

    Mush-headed bullshit.

  • dxcorp

    Well I only have to said that I try it by myself and it works….so!!…
