The work of Viktor Schauberger is controversial. He thought of water as the “blood of Mother Earth,” directly contradicting our long-held materialistic view of water being lifeless, a simple chemical matter of H2O.
Instead, Schauberger talked about the different categories of water. Explaining that water is alive. With ignorant handling, such as by humans and animals, water gets diseased.
Modern people only think about the cleanliness of the water. Which has led to the chlorination of water to the detriment of beneficial micro-organisms that sustain all life.
To ensure that the water we drink has the highest amount of energy, life force and health, we must take some precautions. For example, learning how to care for water. Living in harmony with nature’s laws is the only way to thrive. Water is the giver of all life and needs to be treated with high regard.
In this article, we’ll explore some of Viktor Schauberger’s work on water, water’s connection with the forest, and his many lessons from nature. In an attempt to better understand how we can care for water and allow water to benefit living beings.
Who is Viktor Schauberger? (A.K.A The Water Wizard)
Viktor Schauberger (30th June 1885 – 25th September 1958) was a forester from Austria. He had a gift of perceiving natural energies and understanding how nature operated. Instead of going to university, Schauberger took off into the forest, living in an area undisturbed by man and learning directly from the world around him.
Later, Schauberger managed to practically demonstrate what he’d learned about the inner workings of nature during his time in the woods.
Schauberger’s Categories of Water
Schauberger thought of water as having different qualities. Here are two categories that he used to explain water:
Juvenile Water – Sterile, distilled water is classified as Immature or Juvenile Water according to Schauberger’s theories. As sterile water flows around it, it snatches everything it comes into contact with. Much like a baby, juvenile water takes and doesn’t give.
Ripe Water – spring water which has matured in the forest. Water that’s self-cooling, bubbling, gurgling and full of life energy.

Water’s Connection with the Forest
Thanks to his time immersed in the forest, Schauberger observed a close relationship between water and woodland. Not as we currently perceive it, with the trees simply consuming water. Instead, he theorised that water was produced in the forest.
Water is kept cool in the forest by overhanging vegetation. When a forest is felled, the groundwater is exposed to the rays of the sun, making water hot and aggressive. Schauberger said that this sort of disregard for water makes water lose its character. Explaining that widespread deforestation is one of the causes of the deterioration of water quality.
Encapsulated by the great Schauberger quote: “Every economic death of a people is always preceded by the death of its forests.”
Planting trees, and re-forestation has much broader implications than simply climate change. It helps to restore water’s energy and promote life on earth.
5 Viktor Schauberger Quotes
Here are five quotes about nature and water from Viktor Schauberger.
“More energy is encapsulated in every drop of good spring water than an average-sized power station is presently able to produce.”
“The Upholder of the Cycles which supports the whole of Life, is WATER. In every drop of water dwells the Godhead, whom we all serve.”
“This unique law, which manifests itself throughout Nature’s vastness and unity and expresses itself in every creature and organism, is the law of ceaseless cycles that in every organism is linked to a certain time span and a particular tempo.”
“The drying up of mountain springs, the change in the whole pattern of motion of the groundwater, and the disturbance in the blood circulation of the organism – Earth – is the direct result of modern forestry practices.”
“The pulse beat of the Earth was factually arrested by the modern timber production industry.”
The Most Crucial Factor Affecting Water
Energy can be equated with life or life force. Water reaches its highest energy content when it’s at it’s densest – which is when it’s at a temperature of +4°C (+39.2°F).
It just so happens that a true water spring will normally have a temperature of +4°C (+39.2°F). When water is exposed to heat, it’s said to lose it’s vital life energies.
Water maintains its energy by keeping cool and continually moving, preventing the germination of harmful bacteria. Water can resist rapid changes in temperature, which helps us maintain a healthy body temperature.
We get ill if our temperature rises just 0.5°C (0.9°F). Little alterations to temperature, can produce large results – especially in organic, living organisms. As Schauberger put it:
“The slightest disturbance of this harmony can lead to the most disastrous consequences for the major life forms.”
Too much heat harms water. According to Schauberger, as long as water remains below +9°C (+48.2°F), it’s passive and it helps to build life. Above this temperature, the oxygen in the water is said to become aggressive and highly active.
What’s more, as the temperature of water rises it can create an environment that welcomes pathogens.
If the temperature of water is strictly regulated, the body’s internal terrain is full of beneficial bacteria. Higher temperatures destroy good bacteria and make you more susceptible to disease.
How to Naturally Care for Water
Water should be protected from direct sunlight, preferably in the dark. It should be stored in opaque containers. Like other living things, water needs to breathe and keep moving to stay healthy.
In 1952 the Stuttgart University of Technology in West Germany put Schauberger’s theories to the test. Finding that when water is allowed to flow naturally, it generates energy.
If Schauberger’s philosophies resonate with you, the work of Dr. Gerald Pollack’s work is likely to do the same. His TED Talk is a good starting point.
Perhaps Schauberger’s most famous quote – “Comprehend and copy nature” – is the only way we can reclaim the earth and restore balance. Because water is the giver of life, it needs to be handled correctly, in accordance with nature, to thrive. Otherwise, all organisms that rely on water for life will perish.
For the benefit of all living beings, we need to learn how to live in harmony with nature. Effectively unlearning many of the habits that we’ve learned from modern society. So that life on planet earth can be harmonious and in balance with nature.
