What Are Affirmations?
Positive Affirmations are the encouragement and support you communicate to yourself.
Do Affirmations Work?
Dr. Masaru Emoto demonstrated the power of affirmations through his “Water Experiment”.
In the “Water Experiment”, Dr. Emoto filled multitude petri dishes of water, and selected a variety of words for each one (“I love you” for one, “You make me sick, I will kill you” for another, “You Fool” for the next, etc.)
Every day for 30 days, he said those words to the petri dishes.
He then froze the water and held them under a high powered microscope.
What he found blew him away.
The petri dishes that had positive words spoken to them had beautiful formations of crystals, while the dishes that had negative words spoken to them looked to be toxic and poisoned.
So if our bodies are 70% water what effect would our words have on our well-being?
