The Japanese author Masaru Emoto famously studied the molecular structure of water and how energy and words from human consciousness affect the crystalline structure of ice. When asked what words are used to create the most beautiful crystal, Emoto unequivocally answered, "Love and gratitude."

Masaru Emoto's experiments on water began in the mid-‘90s, where he would expose water to words (written or verbal), pictures or music and then freeze the water.  Before analysing its structure under the microscope.

Water that is exposed to positive energy like compassion and love results in pleasant geometric molecular formations. Whereas water that is exposed to hateful energy results in chaotic and unpleasant structures.
