Product Description

Review

A blend of science and spirituality marks Masaru Emoto's lovely "The Secret Life Of Water", which links the search for happiness and serenity with the life of water on this planet. From interviews with healers and shamans whose powers have changed the shape of water itself to photos of water crystals and cycles of water and life, it's hard to easily peg "The Secret Life Of Water" -- but it will often find its way onto the science shelf and from there into the welcoming hands of spiritual readers as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some food for thought. 29 May 2007
By Uenna TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In this book Dr Emoto traces the journey of water through our planet and the ancient wisdom, memory and knowledge carried in water. This book has a lot of depth and inspires one to a deeper contemplation of life and consciousness. Dr Emoto's simple style of writing makes this book an enjoyable and easy read but at the same time awakens one to be more cognisant of oneself and one's role in the planet.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice Photographs 27 April 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the first book that I have read by the author so I may not be fully appreciating his ideas or the way he writes (or has been translated).

I didn't feel this is a book about science or medicine. It is more about one man relating his ideas about nature and contemplation through the ubiquitous nature of water and at the same time giving us some beautifully produced photographs of ice crystals. A book to help us become self-aware and improve our appreciation of the planet? Yes. A book to advance scientific or medical discussion? I don't think so. By his own admission, he offers no real explanation and for me, his anecdotes lack credibility.

Emoto could have left it at that and I would have been much happier, but throughout the book he seems to be making an attempt to improve the scientific credentials of his ideas by trying to relate them to the theories of great scientists such as Heisenburg and Einstein. When he substituted his own parameters into Einstein's famous 'E equals M C squared' equation, I became more than irritated and the glaring error in the statement that the birth of life occurred 3.5 million years ago (sic, p174) left me with a less than harmonious feeling about the whole book. A simple error, but if the generally accepted facts are left unchecked, what might that say about the theories?

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Exploration of Hado Forces and Water 8 Jan 2006
By D. Buxman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Before getting to the substance of my review, I'd like to point out that this book is very attractive from a physical standpoint, with beautiful, color photographs on high-quality paper. As such, the reading experience itself was quite enjoyable.

On a substantive basis, this book is an exploration of water and the impact of the subtle energies of Hado, a force that is present in all things. Masuro Emoto has blazed a trail in the study of the effect of words, music and images on the formation of water crystals, operating under the hypothesis that negative words create a negative reality in the formation of ugly ice crystals and vice-versa. This is very interesting from the standpoint of the transformation of non-physical concepts (thoughts), into physical form. I've always struggled with the mechanical aspects of manifesting my thoughts into reality, and I think this book explains the process pretty well. Having said this, the author himself points out that his adherence to the scientific method is not strict and that his work is somewhat subjective. He also has a slight tendency to stray far afield, as in his discussion of hemp as a means of alternative energy. In spite of these small complaints, I found the book to be worthwhile and quite fascinating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Secret Life of Water- crystals with a message 13 Mar 2006
By Marla Katz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This was an incredible book about the amazing pattern of crystals made from water. It was remarkable how the author discovered the process of how to look at and feel the message coming from the fluid of life which is water. You will get a real sense of water beyond what we know through ordinary science. And the pictures of the crystals are just amazingly beautiful. I highly recommend the book for those on their spiritual path. M.K. Cleveland,OH

5.0 out of 5 stars Just holding or seeing the book invites one in 14 Aug 2006
By Valda Wells - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Everything this man does emanates love, beauty, and truth. The photography, the explanations, the involvement of many people together resolving serious planetary problems with "simple" solutions - all based on love - getting results. Mr. Emoto's work doesn't just give me hope, it gives me absolute confidence that our planetary problems - both local and international - including greed and war - can and will be resolved. How long that will take will depend on how many people are working toward the resolution. I think it is a movement of growing momentum - especially for people who are willing to take personal responsibility.

4.0 out of 5 stars A remarkable journey into every drop of water 4 Jan 2006
By Park Howell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Masaru Emoto takes the reader on a fascinating exploration into water in its infinitely varied frozen crystaline forms. He demonstrates how water crystals, from their beautifully symetrical to awkwardly disturbing structures, are the byproduct of our glorious and chaotic world. You will also learn how Mr. Emoto and his scientists are able to manipulate and predict the ice crystal's form by subjecting droplets to both positive and negative stimuli. This book gives a whole new meaning to the ripple effect.

3.0 out of 5 stars More than Water flows in this book 1 Mar 2006
By Maurine Killough - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Thought provoking and definitely outside of the box. This book isn't just about "water" but everything that we are: psychologically, socially, physically, spiritually and beyond. This books is another voice in the choir that sentience exists on all levels, and that respect and kindness (and conversely cruelty and disrespect) affects everything small and large, whether we can see it with our naked eyes or not.
