In Memoria: Masaru Emoto

July 22, 1943 – Oct.17, 2014

Dr. Emoto was born in Yokohama and graduated of Yokohama municipal’s University Department of Humanities and Science, with a focus on international relations. In October 1992 he was certified by the Open International University as a doctor of alternative medicine. Subsequently he was introduced to the concept of micro-cluster water and magnetic resonance analysis technology. Thus his quest began to uncover the mysterious qualities of water.

He undertook extensive research of bodies of water around the planet, not so much as a scientific researcher, but more from the perspective of an original thinker. At length he realized that it was in the frozen crystal form that water showed its true nature.

He gained worldwide acclaim for his groundbreaking research and discovery that water is deeply connected to our individual and collective consciousness. In his various books he introduced the novel idea the water not only reflects the physical world around it (a placid lake or pond acts as a mirror for example), but that it also reflects the consciousness of the beings introduced to it.

The experiment he used to discover this included bottles filled with water that were exposed to a positive or negative influence. For example, some bottles of water were wrapped with written notes, with the writing facing inside towards the bottle that said, “Thank you.” This was done in various languages. No matter what language was used, the water in these bottles, when frozen, created complete crystals that were lovely to behold.

Water over which a priest prayed with love and gratitude created the same type of crystals. Conversely, unpleasant, incomplete, and malformed crystals were created in water that was exposed to people saying or writing, “you fool,” or other negative expressions.

Dr. Emoto was the author of the best-selling books Messages From Water, The Hidden Messages In Water, The True Power Of Water and Love Thyself. He also authored to children’s books the Secret of Water for the Children of the World and the Message from Water children’s version. He was a long-time advocate for peace in relation to water, was President Emeritus of the International Water for Life Foundation , and CEO of IHM General Research Institute in Tokyo.

Beyond Words Joins BLEEP

Thirty years ago, Beyond Words started along their path to changing how people view themselves and the world. From coffee table books to international bestsellers like Hidden Messages in Water and The Secret, and now to partnering with revolutionary filmmakers like Will Arntz and Betsy Chasse, Beyond Words is always on the lookout for what will take peoples’ lives to the next level.

Cynthia Black and Richard Cohn have worked diligently to create a company that draws the first and best in the world of transformation, and the fact that Will and Betsy came to them was no accident. A shared commitment to give people new access to why they are who they are and to give them new actions to take to live a life of their dreams, compels Will, Betsy, and Beyond Words to work together for the release of the 10th Anniversary edition of What the Bleep Do We Know?! This film was revolutionary in its time and Beyond Words is just the company to herald this milestone in the film’s history.

Working together to bring an updated and expanded version of What the Bleep?! to it’s fervent and faithful audience, Beyond Words, Will, and Betsy have marveled every step of the way at the passion, insights, and revolution this film brought about in it’s time. We continue to be excited at the reach and profound impact this film had and is still having on our society today. Ideas that were once almost unthinkable are now every day, explanations that once went over the heads of many of the people in theaters are now a topic of dinner table conversations. Just how influential, we may never know, but we know for sure that What the Bleep?! is a classic in the transformational DVD lexicon, and it will endure for years to come.

Beyond Words is thrilled to be a partner to Will and Betsy in spreading this message to a new audience, and rekindling the fervent hop and belief the film brought to the world 10 years ago.
