Let Us Oft Speak Kind Words

Masaru Emoto did experiements with water and published the book, The Hidden Messages of Water, which I purchased many years ago because the power of words on water is fascinating.

Emoto would attach written words to a container of water before they were frozen and the resulting water crystals will be beautiful or ugly depending upon whether the words or thoughts were positive or negative.

Of course gracious means thank you and I looked up the meaning of the other words and trust me, they are vile words and you don't want to look them up.

As of late, I have experienced both positive and negative messages. Thankfully, all the messages I have received have been from those we know and love and have been positive and uplifting. I have a new appreciation for people who uplift, inspire, and are not wanting to pass judgment nor condemn. The only negative messages have come from anonymous people on newspaper internet sites, which I will no longer read in any circumstance.

These pictures demonstrate the kind of affect that words can have on not only on our Spirits but on our bodies because we are made mostly of water. I feel bad for people who speak such negative words because it must make them feel spiritually and physically awful.

Our recent experience has taught me a valuable lesson and renewed my commitment to speak kind words of people and not pass judgment. I have often said that sometimes Heavenly Father has to hit me over the head with a sledge hammer to teach me important lessons. OUCH!!!!

tanya, i find this so fascinating. at school i have kids read a positive affirmation everyday and then throughout the day i whisper how great they are in their ears and it's exciting to really understand the impact it is having. reading your blog makes me see that it's probably the very best thing i do for those kids. and here i thought it was my fabulous well planned lessons!
