Subject: what we did for water day
Date: Mon, 28 Jul 2003 08:40:46 -1000

aloha, i just wanna let u know what we did for rwater day.

we had hawaiian dance performance @La Pena in berkeley, California to thank water on the earth and in our body.

"Hawai'i" litereally means "sacred water ". we feel we are really connected w/ocean.

" rain drops from the sky. and the rain penetrates into the soil. the plants suck the water & ingredients from the soil. we pick up the vegetables or the fruits (plants) and eat them. and things we eliminate from our body go to the river and to the ocean. fish eat them in the ocean. we catch the fish and we eat them" ---- we all connected. 75 % of our body is water. and about same ratio---75% of the earth surface is water. ---- we did this statement to the audience and we danced & chanted for water. our performance itself is the prayer.

we'll keep reminding more people of givin' thanx to water (spiritually & environmnetally) through our dance & chant (our hawaiian dance is ancient style).

Subject: Ceremony 25th July from Geelong Australia
Date: Tue, 29 Jul 2003 11:57:08 +1000

Four of us, Robynne, Robyn, Krys and myself, members of Byakko, gathered by the Barwon River in Geelong, Australia. The 25th July was a very cold but sunny morning. The wind was biting. The previous three days had been wet and wintery. We had not had weather like this for 5-6 years as we had been living in drought conditions. Was the energy building up already? Was WATER letting us know it appreciated our efforts and gratitude in anticipation of this ceremony?

Our first stop was under an old arched bridge which gave the most beautiful resonance to our words and sounds. It was also a popular fishing spot and we thought it would be a lovely gift to leave those fisherman with a peacful energy. Along with the declarations, we performed the INS of Ware Soku Kami Nari and Jinrui Soku Kami Nari, the peace prayer, and words of infinite light, the purification for humanity and a meditation.

We talked about how these words of light and love would be travelling downstream, and out into the ocean, and from there all around the world, effecting all of creation as they pass by. Also how we would breathe in the vapours and integrate them into our bodies which are made up also of mostly water and as we breathe out, someone else is breathing in that same energy. Also the plants and animals we eat also contain water, so how much more will food benefit us if it is imbibed/imbued with this energetic water.

We then decided to perform the INS and words of infinite light at seven different spots along the river. Seven being a powerful number.

Our next stop was further upstream, closer to the cement quarries. We thought it an opportune destination, as WATER probably needed help to overcome any possible contamination with pollution.

We then headed back downstream and found a picturesque spot which was framed by the arch of the old weathered bridge and we could also face the length of the approaching flow of the river. But behind us we noticed that river narrowed very quickly and became a mere trickle and wondered how the water course could change so dramatically, as the Barwon was a large river. We then realized this was not the Barwon but the Moorabool, which is a tributary of the Barwon. So we continued our journey and came to a secluded, quiet, peaceful spot where the river widened a little. As I listened to the sound of birdsong (as opposed to the sound of machines nearer the quarry), I was overcome by the beauty of nature and the harmony of colours that surrounded me.

Down the path we came across a bridge and stood in the middle of it facing four different directions. There we met a man walking a dog, who asked us if we were doing gi gong. He had not heard of this day of gratitude to water, but had been doing his own meditations and marshal arts exercises down by the river. The Universe provided for some networking, and we moved on.

Next we came to a dry rocky bed, outlined with old river red gums. We figured there was probably water deep in the earth, so we stayed there for a while.

Our final spot was on the Barwon proper. It was sparkling in the sun, and singing sweetly as it bubbled over rocks. I felt such joy at the sight and sound. After we performed the usual exercises, individually we had some quiet time alone with WATER and then we drifted back, silently to the car park. I for one, felt a quiet, joyful contentment and a satisfaction that I can contribute to the well being of the earth and humanity, not as an in-your-face activist, but quietly, on an eneregetic and sprititual level which is non-confrontational and I believe, much more effective.

Thank you to those who have brought to our attention the opportunity to join with others around the world to give gratitiude and love to water.


Postscript: I have no attachments to any outcomes, but we have had much more rain since that day. Is the drought breaking?

Hi Sally....Thank you for your mail about the ceremony. This is how it was at the Chalice.

Glastonbury Chalice Well

At 10p.m sixteen of us walked through the magical gardens and gathered around the Sacred Well Head.This included Gabriella and her Chello and her Father and Brother who had met Dr. Emoto in Germany. Lynn the Guardian of the Well was also there

It had been raining that day but at the beginning of the ceremony it was only drizziling and so with the aid if a large umbrella Gabriella was able to play to the Spirit of the Water. The sound was so alligned that it was hard to know if it was the waters rushing through the well or the music. I invoked the essence of all waters of the Earth and of our Human bodies and called the Guardians of all the Portals of Light to assist the work we were all internationally about to do.

Because I know the Kinneret and Sally and the School I found it very easy to connect to those at the Lakeside. It all felt so unified. We let our voices merge with the sounds and poured our Love and gratitude into the Well waters.Then we passed a Chalice of water and gave our prayers into that. The remaining water was poured into the well to flow out into Glastonbury and into the waters of the world.

It felt so powerful to be connected to Israel from this sacred Vortex. For me two places I deeply love.

There was nobody here with me at home here in Ireland, so I did the ceremony on my own, at 7 am with a lighted candle. I missed 1 pm and 7 pm, but did it again twice later anyway, no candle this time. Each time I thanked, sent love and blessings to water everywhere, and then drank the glassful that I based my ceremony around.

Dear Everyone,

It was a deep experience to Love and Thank Water. We were four of us in the morning, five at midday and the two of us in the evening. Through this meditation we established a new link between likeminded people - something that we all have been longing for in this farming area.

Sharing our experiences afterwards we realized how different the day was and we have several ideas how to continue with healing Water, Mother Earth, individual people and ourselves.

Love and Thanks,

July 30, 2003

Dear Yasuyuki NEMOTO,

On July 25, we joined in to the ceremony of the World Day of Love and Thanks to Water, with 50 children at the Manitoga Summer Camp, in Garrison, NY. I will be sending you samples of the water to test, and am attaching photos of the event. The children are really hoping that you will test this water, and they are so keen to know the results.

We gathered around the edge of the "Quarry Pond", which was originally a rock quarry many years ago and was once an empty pit. The American designer Russel Wright helped to "heal" this giant hole in the ground many years ago by diverting a stream to make a waterfall and fill this quarry with water to create a pond. Thus it is called "Quarry Pond." This water is not safe to drink at all, and was tested several times this summer by the health department and was found to contain bacteria. We are pretty sure, based on Mr. Emoto's experiments, that you would find that this water would not crystallize.

At 9:30 a.m. on July 25, the children (ages 4-14) lined two sides of the pond. First we took a water sample. Then we conducted the ceremony as written to us in your e-mail, joining hands and saying "Water, We Love You, Water, We Thank You, Water, We Respect You." We said this aloud together 3 times, then all closed our eyes and sent our love and thanks to the water from their hearts silently for a few minutes. Then we took another water sample.

What struck me was the incredible peace which descended on the children during this ceremony. When we first arrived at the pond they were very excited about the frogs, the fish, the snakes, and all the multitude of wildlife in and around the water. But as soon as the ceremony began, they became fully concentrated and focused. I was amazed, as a teacher, to see them all take it so seriously. When we completed the ceremony, they were totally still and silent. It was one of the most magic moments of the summer for me, and I will never forget it. There is a great simplicity and power in doing such a process with children; no judgment, no skepticism, but real belief.

Later in the afternoon, I asked the children what they could remember of the ceremony, and one 8 year old girl said, "We did a ceremony to the water so that diamonds could come out of it." I hope that she is right and the crystals will form from the water sample taken afterwards.

Thank you for including us in this worldwide process, it was really an honour and a privilege to take this up with you. Please let us know of the results of the water testing if you can. This report is coming to you via e-mail and also a hard copy will accompany our water samples.

With many thanks,

Love and Thanks to Water Essence

In October 2003 Dr. Emoto invited Ruth Joy of Angelic Essences to join him in the ceremony of Love and Thanks to Water on July 25, 2003 at the Sea of Galilee, Israel. Ruth was invited to make an essence of the prayers of Love and Thanks to Water that occurred during the ceremonies that day. This essence could then be placed in water sources around the planet to spread the power of the prayers through the waters of the world.

This essence carries in it all of the prayers of Love and Thanks to Water from the ceremony at the Sea of Galilee and the ceremonies around the planet. It carries prayers and healing energies that are multidimensional and beyond time and space. It also contains the energies of the unification of the seas. This essence is for clearing, healing, and raising the vibration of water. It is offered in love.

Love and Thanks to Water Essence is offered at a special price of $11.00 plus shipping. You may purchase it through www.angelicessences.com.


Yassu, I don’t know if I shared this with you. During the making of the essence I saw a figure of light that I did not recognize in the area where the essences were being made. I asked “Who are you?” He said “I am John the Baptist”. I asked “Why are you here?” He responded “ This is what I am here for; to bless these waters that these blessings be spread to many.” I found out later that the area we were in was John the Baptists ‘neighborhood’ (as Sally put it). Nearby is where he baptized many, including Jesus. Pretty amazing to me.

Please let me know that you received this and the pictures and if there is anything else you may need from me.

I hope you are doing well. I so appreciate you and all you have given and shared.

Sending you big hugs!

Dear persons,

thanks so much for telling us about the world wide prayer and thanks to the water on July 25th. We, living on a small island in the Caribbean, have held our own ceremony. It was beautiful and the next morning I got the attached response, called Echo of the water.

I would like to share this with you.

Love, light and joy,
Lyn de Bruijn, Curacao, Netherlands Antilles

Echo of water

From all over the world into the universe
Your prayers of thanks were heard
In the moment where the water
Was still quiet and at peace
After a night of reflective thoughts
Where humankind stood together
To give thanks to the fluid
That started their life
And will continue forever more
As long as the human understanding
Will develop more and more
Into the conscience of earth

We have heard your prayers also
And found their words
Filled with understanding and wisdom
And when the echo of those words
Reached the waves around the earth
A new awareness was started
Into the souls of mankind
Where profound love for nature
Settles the score
Of many misunderstandings
And earth will bloom once more
In the knowledge that she is part
Of the greater All

So we thank you that you have noticed
The special time and day
Where the crystals of the water
Form the eternal circle of joy
And spread throughout the world
Into the hearts of you,
And all who prayed that very day
That very same moment,
Suspended in time,
And gave to the world a present
That has the power to heal
From which the earth can take strength
To repair the damage
And grow into beauty again,
As she was before…

Subject: 25th July water ceremony

29th July 2003-08-01

An American friend, Jill Over (who lives in Durham, North Carolina) told me about the special day to honour water on 25th July 2003. Jill and I met on a shamnic course taught by Sandra Ingerman of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, which introduced us to the work of Dr. Masuru Emoto.

I live in Scotland and am presently on holiday in St David’s, Pembrokeshire, Wales. I performed a thanksgiving ceremony at St. Non’s Well. St. Non was the mother of St. David – the patron saint of Wales – and her well has been considered a sacred site since ancient times. I took some water from the well and poured it into the sea at Whitesands Beach – a most beautiful place and the site where St. Patrick and other Irish people of great spirituality landed in the early days of Celtic Christianity.

I was struck by the image of these words, “For life and death are one – even as the river and the sea are one”

Also T.S. Eliot’s words from The Dry Savage “The river is within us, the sea is all about us”

I honoured both fresh and salt water at one of their merging places. In a Celtic Shamanic sense, Whitesands Beach is a ‘betwixt and between’ place. The day of July 25th was one of storms and driving rain, with all rivers running in spate. The sea, rich of surf and spume, crashed onto the wild shore. Later, towards evening, the weather cleared allowing us to enjoy a superb lingering sunset.

Dear Friends,

In Austria we had a lot of activities taking place along the Danube and otherbigger or smaller rivers as well as at lakes and wells. Some of us just took a glass of water and organised a small ceremony at home.

I had sent you information about our project at Pochlarn a few weeks ago and we held the ceremony as planned.

We were 50 adults and lots of children, we drew a water symbol (with flour) in the grass and we put small bowls with specially energized water around the water symbol. Then we made a circle and took each others' hands and told the water 9 times (holy figure) : "we love you, we thank you and we bless you" opening our hearts and embracing the water. Then we sang an old mantra and an old song in the honour of the water and played some music.

At the end we poured the energized water in the Danube.

The ceremony was very simple, but honest and we all felt very happy. Unfortunately we did not take photos.

Well I hope you too had a nice ceremony and I also hope that there were many other ceremonies all around the world. The more we are, the better, because we have to make people realize and appreciate the preciousness of water.

Our best regards
Herta + Helga, Klaus Behrendt + Franz Hillebrandt

Dear Ones!

Thank you for all the effort you have put into the project, I hope it turned out well!

In Findhorn we placed a chalice of water into our Sanctuary and blessed it with every meditation during the day. We used it in the evening to plant a tree with it. That was a beautiful ceremony. Some went at luch time on the Bay and blessed the waters there. It was pouring with rain at that time, water all around.

Thanks again my friends, infinite Love from Findhorn, Katharina

On the 25th of July, a group of 31 Danish tourists visiting the Swedish island of Gotland in the middle of the Baltic sea, celebrated a water ceremony.

They uncovered a well, which belongs to an old country keep near the coast, put burning candles around the circle of the well, sang an old Swedish folk song "Uti vår haga..." and read a thanksgiving prayer. The people are members of The Christian Community.

greetings from new york, in the northeastern u.s.a.

onondaga lake is where a virgin-born messenger from the creator gathered the five nations to bury the hatchet and plant the tree of peace:

at 7 in the evening on july 25, about 50 people formed a circle around a container of water on the shore of onondaga lake in willow bay of onondaga lake park. led by a native american, we performed a simple ceremony giving thanks to the water, then we each poured a bit of the ceremonial water into onondaga lake.

the local syracuse newspaper ran a sunday feature with two color photos and a brief bit if text.

I am holding two more water ceremonies at onondaga lake this summer:
at 6pm on saturday, sept. 6, after the next prayer for peace gathering.
at 4pm saturday, sept. 27, after my talk to the finger lakes dowsers chapter

my talk on the 27th will be about why and how onondaga lake is a sacred place. for a preview:

I hope to continue these water ceremonies beyond sept. 27, but I will go one step at a time and see where this path leads.


please let me know if you are planning any future global events.

Hello Hiro - and thank you for this message to see Dr Emoto again. I am leaving to go to the Northern Territory for an Aboriginal festival on the 6th August so sadly I will not be able to visit in Brisbane. We remain most inspired by this work.

On the 25th July we held a ceremony to send love and appreciation to water in Nimbin NSW and 12 of us gathered in a sacred aboriginal site on the edge of a lake in a permaculture garden. We all felt great peace and a strong sense of sending the golden threads of light out into the atmosphere to reach to the Sea of Galilee. Then just as the ceremony was concluding I took this picture of our circle. The picture reflects the beautiful feelings that we all had. It was not planned - just a lucky ray of light in the lens - or maybe…

Please pass this on to Masaru and the rest of your family with my love and appreciation. Hope it can go into the Love Water Web site. It felt like something started to shift when the next day I heard announcements of the release of captive Palestinians.

Love to you all

I want to report that a small group (6) of us held our ritual on July 25 beside the Ohio River in Louisville, Kentucky.

After a number of random decisions and circumstances resulting in the timing of our procession down to the water's edge, when we concluded our ceremony by tossing flowers into the river, waves then began crashing on the shore.

A boat had apparently passed by but it was out of sight by now and the waves took a while to reach the shore. What we experienced were waves sparkling in the sunlight and greeting us with their joyful splashing sounds in response to our ceremony. If only love exists and it is known by having an experience of its effects, then the circumstances arranged by the universe to bring it to awareness need not be a concern of the mind which is obviously limited in these matters.
