When the Water Remembers

Water is our most important and vital resource for all life on earth. Dr. Gerald Pollack, bioengineering professor at the University of Washington, and the author of The Fourth Phase of Water—has been a leader in water research for nearly a decade. He claims that “because the water molecule is so small—the molecules in our bodies are actually 99% water.”

Viktor Schauberger, an Austrian forest warden and early 20th century water research pioneer, was one of the first to hypothesize that water has a memory. He is best known for his unconventional ideas about the unified consciousness of nature believing that “water is capable of absorbing information from its environment”. 

Experiments conducted by scientists within the last decade may support Schauberger’s memory hypothesis. The scientists discovered that when water comes into contact with an object(s)—such as pipes, plants, bottles, and people—it absorbs the objects structural information. This in turn will cause the structure of the water molecules to change—altering the water’s information. This means that water affects our bodies differently based on its previous interactions in the environment.

But to understand water memory and its effects on human health—we first will clarify the difference between ordinary tap water and structured water.

Structured Water

Structured water molecules are negatively charged and have ordered layers of various symmetrical patterns. Tap water molecules are more positively charged and are randomly oriented with little or no symmetry. Dr. Pollack found that the ordered layers of structured water change the chemical composition from H20 to H302. H3O2 is “referred to as living water. Meaning it’s more viscous, dense, and alkaline than regular water”. This structure also allows for greater cell hydration and communication.

Dr. Pollack refers to structured water as exclusion zone water or EZ water. The molecules of EZ water tend to be smaller which allow for easy absorption into human cells. When the negative EZ water is added to positivity charged ordinary tap water—the EZ water separates from the ordinary water and creates an “exclusion zone.” This exclusion zone acts similar to a battery which can both hold and deliver energy.

Furthermore, Dr. Pollack discovered that when electromagnetic energy, whether in the form of visible light, ultraviolet (UV) wavelengths and infrared wavelengths shined on the EZ water—the EZ zone expanded. In other terms—this means the power source for this “battery” is light which acts as a power source for cells. 

The Effects of Intention and the Environment

Results of several experiments indicate that the structure of water can be affected by consciousness and the environment. Water that travels through pipes absorbs the information from each environment it encounters.

According to Schauberger there are two forms of spiraling motion in nature—inward spiraling that builds up energy and outward spiraling that breaks down energy. Schauberger believed that this spiraling motion is crucial to the structuring of water.

However, our modern day water systems have pipes with sharp right angles which destroy the structure of water. Plus—our municipal purification system treatment plants use of purification chemicals—alters the molecular structure of water before it reaches our homes.

In an experiment conducted by Professor Bernd Kroplin at the University of Stuttgart in Germany—different flowers were placed in glasses of water for undetermined time period. The flowers were removed and sample drops of the water were placed on glass slides and examined under a microscope. Each of the drops contained an imprint unique to the different flowers. Thus, the water had absorbed the information from the flower and its environment.   

Structural patterns of water can change based on the thoughts and intentions of the people surrounding the water. In an experiment conducted by Dr. Glen Rein, a healer treated water with three different intentions—a loving intention… a dematerialization intention… and a return to the natural order intention. The water was then added to lab culture tumor cells and the effects were measured. In all three conditions the tumor cells shrank in size—but shrank the most with the water that had been infused with loving intention.

The most widely known studies on water memory were conducted by Dr. Masaru Emoto. Dr. Emoto examined the structure of frozen water that had been treated with a various number of spoken intentions. The words spoken were either positive or negative and ranged from “thank you” to “you disgust me.” The frozen water treated with positive words was arranged in symmetrical ordered layers while the water treated with negative words had no symmetry. This means that the spoken word can have a direct effect on the water we drink.

In conclusion, the idea of water memory is coming to the forefront of the international scientific community and has gained popularity within the last ten years. The fact that water can be affected by consciousness means that people have the opportunity to take control of their health in a unique way. Additionally, as researchers and scientist continue to study the many health benefits of structure water—it may one day replace the municipal purification system. After all—if people are kind to their water—it will be kind to their bodies.
