The healing power of water...


Inspired by this book ' The Hidden Messages of Water by Masaru emoto ' and reflecting on my long journey of life, I am writing this so as to open up our hearts and minds to the power of water on our lives. It all start with a conversation I had with Steven some months ago. We, that is my spouse, me and Steven were enjoying Teh Tarik and Roti Canai at a Mamak store and the subject of this book was brought up by Steven. He say that I must read it and that he would send a copy to me when he gets back to the UK. When he return to the UK he send me the book and I start reading. As usual with me I analyse the content and after some soul searching I found that what the good doctor [Dr.Masaru Emoto] say in this book is actually nothing new. The only different is that this good doctor did many experiments with water to proved to the scientific world that there is more to the water than its looks. By itself it is indeed a simple cure for all illness as well give us the quality of life that we have always wanted. He has proven with scientific evidence that water is alive and that it reacts to command the we give and by that could react to heal or cure sickness. You would understand more if you take the trouble to read this wonderful book. I am in no way promoting this book. I am doing this just to satisfied my curiosity as to the why water works in our body and its healing process. Now I am no longer sceptical but believe for a fact that waters do have the power to heal.

Let me give some of my experiences when I was growing up in the forties. At that time modern medicine was just beginning to take root in the society. There was very few doctors in the government hospital and one of two GP clinic in the town of Kuantan and I believe it was the same in other towns. In the rural area there was none at all. For thousand of years we as a society had survived without modern medicine and relied only on our Shaman, Dukun, Pawang, Bomoh or for the Chinese their Sen Sai. Every time someone get sick in our house we do not rush him/her to the hospital which is some kilometres away but we treat it on our own. In the case of our family there is the Dukun who live opposite our house. A respected man, a simple man who works with the local council for a living but at the same time he often act as our Medicine man. I was just a small boy then and only know this man as Tok Yek. So every time someone get sick I would be ask to call Tok Yek. I would ran across the road and get to his house and told him to come over and tell him that someone is sick and need his help and then I ran back to the house. In the mean time at the house my mother had already got ready the peripheral for the use of the Dukun. Which consist of a bowl of fresh water, some lime fruits, some pop rice [bertih] and incense burner and of course the Tepak Sireh. After a while Tok Yek would arrive and after checking the patient, would take the bowl of water and did the ritual of cutting the lime into two and placed it on the water with the pop rice. He then ask for a glass of water, crystal clear water that come from the well near our house. He recites some words softly into the water and then ask the patient to drink. After that he would take leave with some words of advice. He did this voluntarily and no payment is made. Mostly of the time I notice that the patient got cured.

So coming back to water, what the Dukun give is just to drink the water and usually is the only treatment given to heal the sick or for the cure. Only after reading professor Masaru Emoto book that I realised and understood that the water indeed has the power to cure if treated with love. They say Love cure all and in this case it is love that had been transmitted into the water that provided the cure or heal the sick person.

Even in religion water is used in so many ways to purify, to heal, to cure or just for ablution before a prayer. In Islam whenever a Yassin session [the recitation of chapter 36 of the Koran] is held, jugs of water are placed at the centre of the doa session and later the water would be used for healing the sick or other uses for the goodwill of the family.

Folks non of us would have survived before the coming of modern medicine had it not been for the wonderful service of these Shamans or Sage. Surely they had some means to cure or heal that we do not really know. When modern medicine arrives from the west some of these Dukun, Bomoh were ridicule and eventually it fade away form the need of the society and Modern Medicine and the Doctor took their place. Of course there are the Dukun, Bomoh who still practice. I believe the failure of most modern day Shaman, Healer and Sage is because they have added a monetary value to it service, whereas in the past it was just a service toward humanity. In a way they do not made a living on it but use their gifted knowledge of healing/curing the sick as a sincere contribution to the society. It was not a mean but an end by itself. In the case of modern day Shaman or Sage most of them do it as a mean to an end which is to made a living. This is why these folks who call themselves Dukun, Bomoh or Pawang in most case was unsuccessful in their treatment and some folks get cheated.

I am a strong believer in science. I am sceptical about myth and the supernatural but I know as a Homo sapient that I am a spiritual being as well. There are so many things that we have yet to know and understand. Maybe this book would open our mind to more possibilities that would give a better quality of life to us all. I am indeed in depth to Steven for the gift of this book, that has is some ways open my mind to the new science of water and its power of healing. Some scientists are still sceptical about this finding so let us have an open mind on this as well. Now that science has proven that water does have in some ways a healing power we should use Water with love and give more respect to it.

Have a nice day.

Cool. That's why I always say that water is the most important resources in the world. More important than fire and electric.

Horizon, thanks for the visit and the good word on this posting as well as sharing you thoughts on the subject of water.

Well 70 percent of our body is water and how can we live without it. Read the book and I think you would get to know more about water.

Dear Pak Idrus

Interesting. I know that we have to drink lots of water everyday. Even more when we are sick. That is to avoid dehydration. Personally, I baca certain ayat Quran for my children (sometimes suami too) yang degil dan dihembus ke dalam air & diberi minum. Alhamdulillah hati nya lembut. Semuanya kuasa Allah Taala, wallahualam.

tireless mom, thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts on the subject of water.

There are not much we know about water except that we could not live without it. This book is the beginning of new knowledge about this very important element for the survival of all species on this planet.

Have a nice day and take care.

Capt's Longhouse, thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts on this subject. True our forefather knew it all along that plain water is good for our health but as usual we rarely listen. As for me pure crystal water is what I take all the time except sometime I do go for the coke or the other malt drinks.

Have a nice day and hope to get to meet you some time in the near future. Take care.

Dear Pak Idrus

I just want to share with pak idrus about miracles of water :-

The water had the best transformation with 2 words: "Love" and "Thanks" in every language they used.
Language is not in the DNA. It is learned. How did Adam and Eve learn language? The vibration of a great angel taught language to Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve listened to the vibrations of the sounds of nature and learned the language. This is why there are different languages around the world. Because different areas, due to their different topography, fauna, weather patterns, etc., have different sounds. They have different nature sounds. Some sounds are scary. Adam and Eve, and the others who came after them, were "tuning in" to the sounds.

The Effect of Prayer on Water (this is taken from Quantum Water). Water can reflect human thought. (See Figure (6)). Water is the Source of Life.
Water contains 2 gratitutudes and 1 love. 2 ears = gratitude. You listen.
Love x Gratitude = Immunity
Dr. Emoto consulted with 15,000 people. "People who don't have much immunity have negative thoughts. If a person is full of love and gratitude, sars can never attack the person."
Mother earth is short of immunity. Her children (us) have to offer lots of gratitude and love to the mother. Do it to the water (the blood of the mother).

Einstein's Law of Energy
E = M C 2
Energy = Mass * Speed of Light
Energy = World Population * Consciousness

Dr. Emoto has found that the level of consciousness is at 3 people out of 100 (I wonder if he has checked this recently? I'll have to ask.) He says this because the "DNA activation wave is at 3% and we have to activate the other 97%".

Have a nice day and hope to get to meet you some time in the near future.Take care.

Megam, thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts on the subject of this posting.

I am glad that you have taken your time to explain at length the important of Water. The more knowledge we have on this very important element for our survival the better for the future of our species. It is the exchanges of such knowledge that would do more good to us all.

Have a nice day.
