Week 19 (3-13-17) Rice Experiment–The Power of our words

Not sure who Dr. Masaru Emoto is? He’s worth looking up.

Dr. Masaru Emoto was (he died in 2014) a Japanese scientist who proved through his studies on water and words that the molecular structure of water can be changed merely by speaking positive or negative words over the water.

In essence our words–either good or bad, breathe life or death. Blessings and curses.

What you can find online are pictures that Dr. Emoto had photographers take through a microscope of polluted water before prayer. And after.

Simply incredible.

So. If our words have this type of power over water…and our body is composed of 60% water, what is the chance that  our words have an impact–positive or negative on us.


The two lists on the board were examples of blessings and curses.

What we’d like to know or find out over these next three weeks is to what extent our words impact our experiment. Specifically our rice.

Here we’re filling three bags apiece with cooked, white rice.

We’re also giving each bag a different label.

One bag will say, “I love you.”

Every time we pick this bag of rice up, we’re going to bless it with words like–thank you, I love you, you’re amazing, I’m proud of you. Words that bless.

Another bag will say, “you fool.”

Every time we pick this bag of rice up, we’re going to speak curses over it with words like–you’re ugly, how could you?, this is gross, you fool. Words that curse.

Our final bag will be labeled “control.”

We won’t even bother picking up this bag of rice. We will ignore it.

With our rice set aside, it’s time to ask ourselves: what will happen to the rice?

What we need is a question for our experiment–what do we want to know?

And a hypothesis–based on what we know, what do we think will happen?

This is the part that takes time.

But we’ve got three questions here, all essentially asking the same thing.

Will positive words slow down the decay of my rice?

Will there be less mold growth on the positive-words rice?

Before we leave, we got to go over our rice experiment instructions–one more time.

Then this grid is how we’re going to keep track of our data.

Our goal is to speak to our rice each day.  But we need a means to record that we have or haven’t spoken to it. The grid makes it simple.

Here, by each date, we’ll simply make a check in the box for each rice bag that we speak to or ignore–positive-words rice, negative-words rice, control rice.

All of our instructions, grids, and rice get packed into our kits and head home with us.

Look at these guys! Proud of them.
