Dr. Masuru Emoto: How are Frozen Water Crystals Photographed?

Dr. Masuru Emoto has graciously allowed us to show a video about how he and his fellow researchers collect water and process it to produce the frozen water crystals used in his photographs.

Be sure visite Dr. Emoto's web sites for more information. www.hado.net and www.masaru-emoto.net

The following is an excerpt from Dr. Emoto's most recent book, Love Thyself: The Message from Water III. It is published by Hay House and available at all bookstores. A longer excerpt, plus an interview and more photos of water crystals, are available in the February-March, 2007 issue of Arizona Choices Journal. You can find the Journal in many locations around Tucson, and you can also read it on line as an Adobe Reader pdf file.

It was the summer of 1994. I walked into a bookstore to kill time and ended up buying a book called The Day That Lightning Chased the Housewife: And Other Mysteries of Science by Julia Leigh and David Savold (HarperCollins). I opened the book and immediately noticed a sentence that said something to the effect of: “There are no two snowflakes that are alike.” This was it! I thought, Snow is frozen water. So if we freeze water, the water will be crystallized. If we’re able to take pictures of water before and after the HADO (vibration) is copied, and if we’re able to display these pictures so that people can see how the crystals from the same water change, the world would become aware of, and accept the existence of, HADO. I remember feeling absolutely confident when I had this epiphany.
     In the autumn of 1994, my plan began to take shape. After listening to me go on and on about my water-crystal idea for about two months, one of my staff members responded to my determination that we can take pictures of crystals. He was a decent scientist and a pure man who had completed his doctorate at a national university. He was new to my company, having just been hired in the spring of the same year. This man worked hard through a continual process of trial and error for about two months. (Through this and later experiences, I’ve come to believe that purity is an absolute requirement for the people who study water.)
     One day in September he ran into my office, his face beaming, holding a picture in his hand. “I got it, chief!” he announced. We shook hands firmly with each other. I still remember how deeply moved I was.
     We continued taking pictures of frozen water crystals using various methods almost every day. The technique that shows letters and pictures to water was brought about from various experiences of HADO measurement, and the idea was nothing unconventional to me, so I adopted it naturally. These first pictures were compiled and published to the world as a photo album entitled The Message from Water (HADO Kyoikusha). It was June 1999.
     More than a decade has passed since we started practicing water-crystal photography. The laboratory staff takes pictures of all kinds of water crystals every day in the large, cold refrigerators. As I mentioned in the Preface, what started with one researcher and one refrigerator has now become six researchers and three refrigerators. Today we take many more photos than ever before, and our results are much more stable.
