Emotions Affect the Environment


The science of quantum mechanics has long reasoned that the universe is infinitely more complex than anyone ever imagined. As it turns out, every aspect of who and what we are, including our emotions, has a significant impact on the environment. By simply “being”, individuals are creating their own impact on the environment every second of every day. This impact is largely due to our emotions as we perceive the world around us.

No one knows this concept quite like Dr. Masaru Emoto. Dr. Emoto, scientist turned artist, has spent a significant amount of time in his career studying human emotions and their impact on the universe. Emoto theories are based upon the rules of quantum mechanics, wherein the mere existence of everything has some sort of impact. Physicists have long questioned whether anything truly exists without the presence of an “observer” to experience it, thus the presence of the observer as well as the emotions of the observer play an important role.

Dr. Emoto’s artwork/scientific genius is proof of this concept. The idea to work with water occurred to Emoto in 1994, when the doctor began to perform experimental procedures in which Emoto interacted with frozen water crystals in ways that generally humans use to interact with one another. Emoto spoke to water, sang to it, and even presented water with pictures of differing alphabetical letters.

Astoundingly, the water responded. The crystals that formed during Emoto’s positive interactions were of incredibly beautiful and breath-taking design. Never the same, one crystal formed right after another with impeccable grace. Dr. Emoto decided to introduce the crystals to a wide variety of emotions and scenarios, and just as he had surmised, they changed according to the stimulus he placed on them.

For example: if he played soothing music to the water crystals, they proliferated in lacy abundance, but if he made lots of raucous noise or played unsettling music to them, they would not even form properly. Emoto also spoke to the water crystals, using various emotions in the doctors tone of voice, being careful to allow Emoto to truly experience the emotion he was trying to convey for the purest of results.


The procedure was done the same way each time, with the same water, in the same environment. There were no changes in procedures, only in the emotions that he intended to share. From these experiments, Emoto conceptualized an entirely unique art form and helped the rest of the world to understand quantum mechanics in a way that many would not have anticipated.


Lovers of the quantum sciences appreciate them for a variety of reasons, but one of which, is the incredible interconnection that is noted in the universe. This kinship between the observer and the observed is quite literally what makes the world as it is. It is not surprising that others in the world respond more positively to goodness than to anger or resentment; therefore it stands to reason that the environment also responds exceptionally well to positive reinforcement.The emotions people have, whether good or bad, affect not only our environment but the world around us.
