Ceremony to Send Love and Thanks to Water on July 25
Reports from foreign countries (4)
I would like to share with you that our ceremony was completly inspired by Mr Emoto's work. I began dreaming with this ceremony on the Riachuelo river since I first new of this marvelous work from Drunvalo Melquisedek. I beleive it was three years ago.
We choose the 13 th of july instead of the 25th, because in our country it is very dificult to gather big groups of people on a working day like a friday is.
So we did it on sunday 13th with the full moon.
I would like to share with you that on july 24, 11 days after our ceremony, and only hours before "The love and thanks to the water day", a whale appeared at the mouth of the Riachuelo river, just where it flows into the Rio de La Plata river. The place where it was spotted was very close to the place where our ceremony was held.
The whale swam
there all day and eventually it was led to the safe waters of the sea
by our coast guards.
We are still hoping you will be interested in verifing our work on the Riachuelo, known as the third most polutted river in the world.
Thank you again for your kindness
This article was published in CLARÏN, one of our leading newspapers. It's about the whale I refered to above. Sorry it's in spanish
PREFECTURA SEGUIA SUS MOVIMIENTOS ESTA MADRUGADA
Apareció una ballena a 200 metros de la costa, en Dock Sud
La localizó un petrolero que entraba al puerto. Por la altura de su chorro de vapor, sería de gran tamaño
Una ballena de gran tamaño, aparentemente sana, apareció anoche frente al puerto de Buenos Aires, y esta madrugada todavía nadaba en las aguas del Río de la Plata, a apenas unos doscientos metros de la costa.
Al cierre de esta edición, personal de Prefectura seguía de cerca los movimientos del cetáceo, que se desplazaba a lo largo del canal de acceso sur, tratando de salvaguardar al animal y preservarlo de los posibles peligros por el continuo tráfico de buques.
Un equipo de Clarín enviado al lugar, desde el buque "Estrella Pampeana", de la empresa Shell, anclado en la Dársena de Inflamables, pudo divisar anoche la silueta de la ballena, que esporádicamente soltaba por sus fosas nasales enormes chorros de vapor, de unos 10 metros de alto.
Esos enormes manchones de claridad en medio de la oscuridad de las aguas, de noche, daban al mismo tiempo la evidencia más clara sobre los desplazamientos del cetáceo en pleno río, frente a la ciudad.
Los enviados de este diario pudieron ver el primer chorro alrededor de las once y veinte de anoche, después de casi media hora de divisaje desde la popa del buque petrolero. A partir de ese momento, y hasta pasada la medianoche, el animal repitió sus exhalaciones durante unas diez veces.
La ballena nadaba frente a la Dársena de Inflamables, así llamada porque allí confluyen los buques petroleros a la zona de refinerías de las empresas petroleras en Dock Sud.
Fue justamente un barco de este tipo, el "Estrella de Plata", de la empresa Shell, el que divisó al animal. Ocurrió alrededor de las diez de anoche, e inmediatamente la tripulación avisó a Prefectura.
El prefecto principal Eduardo René Scarzello le comentó anoche a este diario que inmediatamente se envió al guardacostas "Río Deseado" de esa fuerza para rastrear al animal.
Al mismo tiempo, se avisó a las autoridades del Zoológico de Buenos Aires sobre la novedad, para que veterinarios y otros expertos conocedores de los hábitos de estos cetáceos los orientaran sobre la mejor forma de cuidar a la ballena y, en lo posible, ayudarla a retomar su hábitat marino.
Esta madrugada, la oficina de Prensa de Prefectura, desde el edificio Guardacostas, confirmó a Clarín que se trata de una ballena. El prefecto Scarzello contó que, apenas recibido el primer aviso, se envió a la zona al "Río Deseado", que además está provisto de cámaras. "Por las imágenes que ellos nos transmitieron, desde la Central de Tráfico pudimos confirmar que se trataba de una ballena".
Por antecedentes recientes similares en aguas del Río de la Plata, se especulaba con que fuera un ejemplar de los que tienen su hábitat en el océano Atlántico, por los mares del sur de Brasil y la Argentina.
Hace casi un año, justamente, una ballena de la variedad Minke apareció en el río Paraná de las Palmas, en el Delta.
A aquel ejemplar se lo divisó el 2 de agosto. Prefectura, asesorada por veterinarios del Zoológico porteño, trabajó durante casi dos días para tratar de reorientar al animal hacia aguas marinas. Pero al segundo día la ballena (que tenía unos 7 metros de largo y pesaba unas 8 toneladas) quedó varada en un banco de arena cercano a la isla Martín García.
Encallado en la arena, sobre apenas unos 30 centímetros de agua, el animal se fue enterrando solo, con sus propios esfuerzos por salir de allí. Las tareas de los veterinarios por mantenarlo hidratado resultaron inútiles, y la ballena murió de un paro cardiovascular.
Dear Dr. Emoto,
Thank you for what you are doing for the earth.
I participated in your Project of Love and Thanks to Water by myself on July 25 and drank the water after I had given my thanks, love and respect. I could taste the difference.
As more and more people participate in your annual
project I am sure we'll change all the water on earth.
Thank you dear Water, i love You!
Dear Mr. Emoto,
I spoke with Sally Reedman last week and told her about my experience with Thanking Water on 'Thanking Water Day'.
On that day I went to the Columbia Gorge in Northwest Oregon. I took my best friend, her teenage daughter and my 9 year old granddaughter.
We first stopped at a small stream in an area off the gorge...it has been overused by humans and needed help. We stood on a suspension bridge and did our thank you's.
We then went to the Columbia River, near the Hanford Nuclear Waste Dump. The Columbia Gorge is one of the Northwest's most breathtaking locations. It has high winds, steep cliffs and the beautiful river. They are now aware of the problems that were created in the early 70's by having a waste dump so close to the river. But even today the gorge is considered the most spectacular windsurfing area in the world.
We did our Thank you Water meditation at the mouth of the Columbia as it goes into the Pacific Ocean and near the waste site. We felt that having children with us was incredibly powerful....they are the ones that live with the results of how we care for water in today's society.
I hope you enjoy hearing about our experience in Oregon, USA. I heard about the event from Ruth Joy and Rachel Finney who sent the original email to many locations around the world.
Thank you for thinking of this wonderful chance to help. We will continue to make a difference with the waters of the world.
The ceremony of thanking water, hence Nature,reminds me of the native North American Indian practice of giving thanks to the water, sky, land, earth, directions, animals, & the Source, the Big Spirit, Wakantaka ..
Yes back to Nature ---with love & gratitude ...instead of pave the planet for carz ...& exhaust with no thanks ..
My teacher AC Bhaktivedanta swami said that Nature responds to our thoughts & activities ..By showing lack of respect & mistreating animals by slaughtering them She responds with world war 1 & 2 along with devastating Nature occurances ..It appears that We may be at a crossroads .. I have also heard of tornadoes hitting a row of houses , then jumping over one & then again descending to obliviate the rest ..hmmm
Thank you for your kind response. How is Dr. Emoto? Please let him know that he is in my prayers. I apologize if I sent too much information. This is very exciting to us, here at home.
Here are our locations for our Six Pointed Star.We are all praying for world peace.
I wrote to 12 people who participated in
the Global Water Blessing Ceremony July 25, 2003.
They found my email address from the Projects Home Page. This is also where I went to gather the email addresses to write to a small number of people. I hope that was ok to do.
The feedback from the people was positive. My focus and intentions here are to spread the message of Dr. Emoto's work, and to continue to gather for water blessing ceremonies.
After meeting Dr. Emoto, I organized a non-profit corporation to continue to create water blessing ceremonies, to teach people how to create them on their own.
I have wrote to the HADO institute to keep you updated of my activities, in the hopes of working with Dr. Emoto someday...as I would love to support the Hado institute.

Dear Dr. Emoto,
Attached are photos from the ceremony on Lake Michigan, USA, on July 25.
Susann Lederle has previously written briefly to you about this ceremony, and had promised photos, but I don't believe she ever sent them to you. So I take this opportunity to send photos of my own, and also correct my name which is: Forest (not Froest (!) as she had written). I will add my own narrative of the event:
companion Susan and I had been motoring, circling Lake Michigan clockwise
for several days, with visits to numerous waterfalls, small lakes, and
to Lake Superior (largest freshwater body in the world),
While Susann and Kathy live
on the shore of a great freshwater lake, Susan has lived for many years
on the bank of the Missouri River, one of the longest rivers in the world;
and I live at the shore of Puget
I have just returned from a visit to nearby Vashon Island where I was delighted to discover that my friend Shaheeda Pierce is deeply involved in this Project (as reported to you by Korina).
Susan and I will find a way to participate in November 8 ceremonies, and feed the growth of this blessing activity.
Peace and love,
Dr. Sir Emoto
In Quebec, July 25, 2003, a group of 27 people, coming from all horizons, got together in the Laurentides, at Ste-Anne-des-Lacs, to celebrate WATER, around a pure lake. Echoing with the Palestinian event, we emitted harmonious vibrations of peace and praise.
An enormous inflated balloon in which the Planet Earth was imprinted, served to help us with our presentation. We had to throw the balloon to each other, giving our name and why we were there. Then we distributed to each a crystal goblet. The animator poured some water in each glass from a pitcher and each person was invited to silently bless the water and drink slowly.
After we inscribed our wishes on a piece of birch bark and gave it to the lake. Then we poured the lake water on a clay model of our surrounding mountains and in a state of consciousness, we knowingly sent our wishes to the other bodies of water that influence our ecosystem. Musicians emitted then crystalline sounds from adapted instruments. It was a magical moment, the moon shone down upon us and our tranquil vibrations filled the air. We sang and recited poems on the theme of WATER.
We then entered the chalet to watch a video and embarked on a group discussion on "What we can do socially and in community, to become more ecologically conscience".
The evening ended at 10:30 P.M. Everybody brought back with them their angel which for a moment was elevated with the other angels in the air of the night.
Event organized by Marcel Dubuc, Montreal
for your efforts on behalf of creating awareness and sending love and appreciation for our water. I have alwasy held this consciousness (since infanthood) but until now, have not found others who could understand or resonate with this wonderful connection and appreciation for water.
I am deeply grateful to all of those who have created this experimentation, awareness, the website the allows us to connect more easily.
Blessing for you!
