The Science

Lake Winnipeg Water Walk organizer Katherine Morrisseau-Sinclair read about the work of Dr Masuru Emoto and his studies on the power of positive words to affect the health of water crystals. The science of Dr. Emoto, blended with the traditional Anishinaabe Midewiwin teachings she receives, inspires her to continue the work she does for the water.

The Lake Winnipeg Water Walk is an activation of the power of prayer, positive words and thoughts through traditional Anishinaabe Midewin teachings of caring for the water.

The following is an excerpt from:

Through the 1990′s, Dr. Masaru Emoto performed a series of experiments observing the physical effect of words, prayers, music and environment on the crystalline structure of water. Emoto hired photographers to take pictures of water after being exposed to the different variables and subsequently frozen so that they would form crystalline structures. The results were nothing short of remarkable.

For example:

Water Before Prayer                     Water After Prayer

Biwako Lake (polluted)                 Shimanto River (clean)

After observing these miraculous results, Dr. Emoto went on to type out different words, both positive and negative in nature, and taped them to containers full of water. The results were as follows:

“You make me sick, I will kill you”           “Adolph Hitler”

“Thank you”                                                   “Love and Appreciation”

As you can tell, the water stamped with positive words is far more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing than that stamped with dark, negative phrases.
