“ What we imagine in our minds becomes our world. 

“ And we are beginning to hear the groaning from our tortured planet.

We are at a point when we must realize that

if we want to continue to call this planet our home, 

we need to change - not the planet, but ourselves. ”

If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, 

to who you are, here and now and when you get there, 

you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, 

even in a mud pond, beautiful and strong. ”

Masaru Emoto is best known for his claims that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water. Emoto's hypothesis has evolved over the years of his research. Initially he believed that water takes on the "resonance" of the energy which is directed at it and that polluted water can be restored through prayer and positive visualization.

Masaru Emoto was born in Yokohama in 1943. He is a graduate of the Yokohama Municipal University's department of humanities and sciences, with a focus on International Relations. In 1986, he established the IHM Corporation in Tokyo. In October of 1992, he received certification from the Open International University as a Doctor of Alternative Medicine. Subsequently he was introduced to the concept of micro cluster water in the US and Magnetic Resonance Analysis technology. The quest thus began to discover the mystery of water.

He undertook extensive research of water around the planet, not so much as a scientific researcher, but more from the perspective of an original thinker. At length, he realized that it was in the frozen crystal form, that water showed us its true nature. He has gained worldwide acclaim through his groundbreaking research and discovery, that water is deeply connected to our individual and collective consciousness.

He is the author of the best-selling books Messages from WaterThe Hidden Messages in Water, The True Power of Water and Love Thyself. He has now also authored two children’s books,The Secret of Water for the children of the world and The Message from Water children’s version. He is a long-time advocate for peace in relation to water. He is currently the head of I.H.M.General Research Institute and President Emeritus of the International Water for Life Foundation, a Not-for-Profit Organization.
