I have many interests as you may or may not know. I’m a voracious reader and know just enough about everything to be dangerous. One of my latest areas of interest is quantum physics.
One area of quantum theory that has captured my focus lately is the focus of Dr. Masaru Emoto who wrote the book, "The Hidden Messages in Water." He’s the guy (a doctor of alternative medicine in fact) who discovered that water communicates with us. Really he posits that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. I know what you’re thinking, cause, well, I thought it too. This can’t be founded on any known science. I was wrong and so are you.
He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns when in a crystalized (frozen) state. In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors.
The idea is connected to quantum physics in so much as we don’t know shit about reality. In the case of water, words are affecting the reality of water. Which then begs the question of whether or not we can affect our reality simply by thinking of it, or more precisely, forming our own reality.
We, as humans, are 90% water so this theory should be of great interest to humans. If our thoughts can impact our reality, then doesn’t it stand to reason that positive thoughts create a positive reality and negative thoughts a negative reality? Negative self-perception is clearly harmful to our psyche and emotional state, and some indications tend to support the idea that negative thoughts can also harm our physical health. The question is whether or not just by thinking positively all the time would make you not only a better person to be around (clearly), but make you a healthier person.
New agey crap aside, this is a theory I can get behind and support.

That really is fascinating; I think I’ll have to read that book! I love quantum physics and how messes with my head.
The whole quantum thing makes my head spin. I am interested but everytime I read something about my head explodes.
Interestingly there was a study in the UK amonsgt cancer patients which found that having a “positive” attitude had no impact upon recovery/survival rates. I remember it simply because I had thought that being of positive mind would have physcial benefits. Having said that maybe have a positive state of mind prevents you from falling ill?
Hmmm… of course, you have to question the sources in either case. I’ve read of stories in which cancer patients went into remission with a combination of traditional treatment and mental exercises. In one case, a child who was told he had inoperable brain cancer, simply thought about his tumor and imagined he was attacking it with a spaceship… slowly destroying the mass. Now, I have yet to find substantiated proof this even happened, but the cancerous tumor melted away to nothing.
“A positive mental outlook can actually promote your body’s healing. During the last few years doctors and researchers have explored the interconnectedness of a person’s immune system and mental state. As “non-orthodox” healers have known for thousands of years, the mind can really help to heal the body. It could be called psychosomatic healing. Dr. Bernie Siegel, in his books (ie. Love, Medicine, and Miracles) and therapy clinics has documented such “unscientific” events as malignant tumors shrinking after patients had practiced positive thinking and self-love techniques over a period of time. Your E.I. symptoms may not shrink away dramatically if you find and keep a positive attitude but the odds are that it will certainly be better for your physical health than if you had a negative attitude.” (source: http://www.hhinst.com/Artfinding.html)
Sure, but no disrespect ( aww what the hell..some disrespect) to therapy centres producing their own books..they would say that wouldnt they? Whereas the NHS study, and I wish I could remember where the hell I saw it, probably The Lancet or BMJ, was a clinical study with all the random do dahs that that implies…ok, forget it, its late here and Im babbling..
