I once heard of this concept, “The Power of Words” when I attended a Church meeting many years back. The Pastor shared about why it is so important that we should always change our negative thoughts, words, and deeds and make it positive and I also remembered vividly that the Pastor shared pictures of an experiment that was conducted by Dr. Masaru Emoto, a Japanese author and entrepreneur.
In the experiment that was conducted by Dr. Masaru Emoto, he exposed water in glasses to different words, pictures, or music, and then thereafter froze and examined the aesthetics of the resulting crystals with microscopic photography.
The results of the experiment were pretty astounding and it showed that the water in glasses that were exposed to positive words, pictures, or music had a nicer structure than that of those water in glasses that were exposed to negative words, pictures, or music.
If you have the time to spare, do check out a video that I have found on Youtube regarding Dr. Masaru Emoto‘s experiment.
Well, if that wasn’t interesting enough, a local Singaporean by the name of Ken Casimir Koh conducted somewhat a similar experiment and documented it. In the experiment that took Ken 2 months and 15 days to conduct, Ken had three bowls of normal beancurd [a.k.a Tau Huay] bought from the hawker stalls and he labelled them A, B, and C.
You would see that in the video, Ken spoke positive words of encouragement to beancurd A, words of comparison to beancurd B, and discouraging words to beancurd C.
Interestingly enough, the results were quite amazing and the beancurd labelled A has a slower rate of decomposition as compared to beancurd B and beancurd C. Another interesting result that was observed from the experiment was that the container of beancurd B was deformed.
While it may be difficult to explain how and why such a phenomenon took place in the two separate experiments [and probably many other more] that were conducted, what is important for us to note here is that words contain energy and they can have an effect on the people around us.
The Book of Proverbs in the Bible says that the tongue [which translates to the words that we speak] is a tree of life and that it can promotes health. However, the Bible also says that a perverseness of the tongue can break the spirit and lead to death. [Proverbs 12:18, Proverbs 15:4]
Therefore, in all that we do and whether it be at home, school, or work, it is extremely important to watch what we say, do, and think about. Choose to be positive. Choose to be happy. Choose goodness in life.
