A Few Words on Negative Self Talk

Water with the words,
"love and appreciation."

On the same subject as the previous post, I would like to specifically talk about negative self-talk and how it affects us on all levels, including physically.

Before I get into that, I would like to get a bit "scientific", which for me is a stretch since I'm your typical artist type (and I prefer that way, lol...). Some of you may have seen the film, "What the Bleep Do We Know." If you haven't, it's sort of a beginners intro to Quantum Physics as it relates to spirituality, and particulartly, to the Law of Attraction. If you haven't already seen, go buy it or at least rent it. It's well worth taking a look.

One of the talks in the film is about Japanese scientist and doctor of alternative medicine by the name of Masaru Emoto, whom you may have already heard of. If you already know about him, bear with me while I give some background to those who have not.
Masaru began to do research on the affects that words and emotions have on water. Through his research he found out that it was when water was in a frozen crystal from, it revealed its true nature. He began to do experiments with water of all types where he would have a drop of water on a slide, with words or phrases typed onto the slide. He would then freeze this water until took on a crystalline form. His conclusions were amazing and something out of science fiction...

When he placed the water next to positive words, the water would form beautiful and intricate designs, but when negative ones were placed, the formations were very ugly and distorted. This result happened over and over again.
Keep in mind, that these were just words typed on paper, placed next to the water. Pretty inoculous one might think. Just by having a piece of paper, which holds no energy of emotion, we can change the structure of water. big deal right? WRONG!!

Now you add to that, the power of placing an emotion behind those words. Add to that again, the fact that we are made up of 80% water and the fact that we are constantly being bombarded with negative images, words, thoughts from every direction possible (especially in our own minds). Not to mention, the fact that our thoughts, feelings, actions and words are highly contagious...

Water with the words,
"You make me sick, I want
to kill you." do the math.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why we live in such in unhappy and out of balance world.
A great deal of research has been done since these initial experiments, and there have been some incredible realizations that have come from it. Namely the diseases that have nearly taken over the world at an alarming rate, namely cancer. Western medicine already knows that stress causes most illesses. Literally we, as a society, are killing ourselves with negative thinking.

Here are a few more of Emoto's photos of how different types of words affected the water crystals for you to ponder as you're reading.

Now...there's no hard scientific proof of this next idea, but if our thoughts and emotions have the kind of power to change our own water / crystalline natures, in the way that the water changed in Emoto's experiements, what do you think those same thoughts will affect our own bodies? All I can say is, "OUCH!" No wonder cancer is the leading cause of death in North America.

Ponder this for a moment...imagine the result of years of some of that harshness and cruetly that we place on our own selves, much less what other think and say about us...add to that the violence in the media and even in our own back yards. Well...It seems to me that its a miracle that we haven't wiped ourselves out completely by now, and doesn't surprise me in the least, that cancer is one of the biggest killers of our time, and getting worse.

Having said that, going back to the previous post and the idea that for every single positive thought, there's 10,000 negative ones that are neutralized...there is hope in all of this! Which makes the challenge I put out there in the last post even more critical. If we all spend some time consciously changing the way we thing, speak, feel and act, this alone, can change the world. If you don't believe me, just try the challenge for a day and see what y0u think...

The point is...let's get this message out there in a big way, "When you change your thoughts (and emotions), you change your reality." LITERALLY!!! So, let's change our reality for the better starting NOW!!

Just some food for thought!!!

"Thank You"
