Dr. Masaru Emoto, a Japanese author and researcher believes that water is a “blueprint of our reality,” which can be literally restructured by the “vibrations” and “energies” people transmit. Emoto exposed water in glasses to different music, words, and emotionally-charged phrases and examined their properties using microscopic photography. He hypothesized that positive speech would actually make the frozen water crystals more aesthetically pleasing and vice-versa. According to Dr. Emoto, his experiments proved his hypothesis correct.
Additionally, humans are 60-70% water, so essentially what Dr. Emoto was hoping to illustrate with his work is that we are all just fleshy sacks of water affected by words and vibrations. If someone says something kind or in a certain way, you are physiologically programmed — even by the very water you’re comprised of — to have a reaction. In other words, “vibes” are a real thing. If you get a good vibe or a bad vibe from someone, trust your instinct.
His peers have questioned his methods, but Emoto’s concept is intriguing at the least. Now when someone calls you a millennial snowflake, simply point out that their negativity is sending bad vibrations through your watery self.
