Report on the 2nd World Day to Send Love and Thanks to Water (July 25, 2004)
On behalf of Dr. Masaru Emoto, President of "Project of Love and Thanks to Water", I am writing this report as a Secretary-General.
We successfully held both Masaru Emoto's lecture and Ceremony to Send Love and Thanks to Water in Liechtenstein on July 25, 2004 — The 2nd World Day to Send Love and Thanks to Water. Below, I will present the report to you.
As I mentioned in my previous correspondence, I entered Liechtenstein in the evening of July 19 with my colleagues, Akihiro Otake and Takashige Kizu, and joined Mr. & Mrs. Emoto who had entered there a few days earlier.
Many water samples were arriving at the Hado Life Europe in Liechtenstein via tens of international parcels every day. Rasmus Gaupp-Berghausen, who is in charge of the Liechtenstein office, was amazed at the flood of water samples.
As many of you know it, July 22 was Masaru's 61st birthday. It seemed as if the various kinds of waters coming every day from all over the world were a present to celebrate his birthday. Masaru was very much touched by the scene.
From Arizona, USA, Ruth Joy and Jeanne Michaels came to support us as a volunteer. Ruth, Jeanne and Mrs. Kazuko Emoto cooperatively created a list of water samples including the place of collection, marking each water bottle with a unique number.
The person who sent us the most bottles was our good friend, Silver Star, from Missouri. She mailed us 14 different waters. The second person was Phyllis Von Miller from Washington with 10 waters. The third was Terri Peterson from Minnesota with 9 waters. Terri helped Masaru a lot during his lecture tour in the US.
As a result, we received in total 200 different kinds of waters from all over the world (List of waters is HERE).
According to the weather forecast a few days earlier, it was supposed to be raining. Yet, we had a nice and clear sky. On 2:00 pm, Masaru's lecture started at the Public Hall in Eschen, Liechtenstein. We had no idea how many people would come. As it turned out, we found that as many as 300 people came, just fitting all the seats we had prepared.
For the first time in his experience, he introduced a 30-min break between a 1.5-hr lecture and its 1-hr follow-up. Although it was a long lecture, he gave it very passionately and the audience listened to it very excitedly. Although it was Masaru's first lecture in Liechtenstein, it was a big success.
After the lecture, we promptly moved to the place of the ceremony and started to prepare for the ceremony. We brought microphones and speakers, set up a whiteboard and placed the water samples from all over the world in numerical order on a table.
In front of the central stage, we put a small rack and placed a round and flat container made of pottery. This was a container to use to pour all the waters sent from the world and mix them well, and Rasmus arranged it. It was really a firm and heavy container that you could use for Japanese flower arrangement.
We decided to delay the schedule 30 minutes, and to start the 2nd Ceremony to Send Love and Thanks to Water at 7:30 pm at the Bongert Place in Gamprin-Bendern.
I myself played a role of MC in English and Mr. Uls Loosli supported us in translating English into German. He had been helping us many times as an interpreter of Masaru's lecture. We also asked Ruth to lead a guided meditation during the ceremony.
The purpose of this ceremony was to mix all the waters into one, to dedicate our sincere prayer of Love and Thanks to it and then to pour it into the Rhine River.
Ruth said that she had asked the Rhine River if she would accept our pouring the water into her, as she had thought that we should first have permission from her if we would like to do that. The answer was, she said, "A big YES!". Encouraged by her comment, we started our ceremony.
First, we asked those who brought their waters with themselves this day to write the place of collection on the whiteboard and then to pour about a half glass of the water into the container. At the same time, we asked to speak the place of the collection using a microphone so that all the people could recognize the nature of the water. Various kinds of waters came together. It was impressive to me that one of the waters was from Lourdes, France.
The total number of the waters that the participants brought with themselves to the ceremony place was 51 finally. We didn't expect that so many people came here with their own water, a happy surprise.
Next, we were to mix the waters on the table which was mailed to the Liechtenstein office from the world.
We invited all the people to participate in this step. We handed each water bottle, one by one, to them all and asked them to pour the water into the container. Ruth called the place of collection of each water using a microphone.
The second last bottle contained a sacred water mixture that had been dedicated upon the Water Ceremony during The Global Assembly of Indigenous People at Hiroshima 2004 held in Hiroshima, Japan, on June 16. I received it from one of its committee members, Toshihiro Kishimoto, and brought it from Japan with myself. This water was poured into the container by the hands of Mrs. Emoto.
The last bottle was a water sample from Slovenia, brought here by Ales Naglas. He came to Liechtenstein by driving a car from his home country. Alex, as well as Ruth, had helped us a lot during the 1st Ceremony to Send Love and Thanks to Water held by the Sea of Galilee in Israel last year. This last bottle of water was taken by Masaru and the water was poured into the container.
When all the waters were mixed into one, the water filled the container almost to the brim. In total, 251 different kinds of waters taken from 29 different countries in 6 continents were gathered together to become one in the container.
Although this ceremony of mixing the waters together seemed a boring repetition of the simple procedure at the beginning, it turned out to be a moving experience to just watch the scene that more than 250 different waters sent from all over the world were being mixed into one.
Each time a new water was introduced into the container, it would generate small ripples on the surface. However, they settled very soon, and the new water became integrated into the existent water mixture without a trace. It seemed to be showing the oneness, not only symbolically but also in a very real way, that all the life on Earth is connected into one through water.
Minds and hearts of the people who had resonated with our Project were uniting together through water at a dimension exceeding the differences in nationality, race, religion, culture and 'Ism'. It was unexpectedly moving.
Then, we asked the participants to make a big circle by holding their hands together.
Through a guided meditation led by Ruth, our hearts were connected into one. To the water mixture brought into one, we said the following three sentences of Love, Thanks and Respect out loud together in German.
Water, we love you.
Time was passing by silently.
We asked the participants to lead the same prayer of Love, Thanks and Respect in a different language other than German. We followed sentence by sentence together. Finally, Masaru said the prayer in Japanese, and all the participants repeated it.
Then, Masaru sang "An die Freude" of Beethoven's Symphony No.9. People followed with a humming or sang together in German. Several other people sang their song, too.
A sound healer, Nikki Williams, from the UK sang a wonderful song with her extraordinary overtone voice. She was also a member of a film company, Third Eye Vision Films. She recorded this day's ceremony with a digital video camera.
Now, our sincere prayers and songs had been dedicated to the water mixture.
At this time, I said to the people "I guess this water right now is the happiest water in the world. Don't you think so? It seems to me that the vibration of this water becomes higher than before. What do you feel?". I felt it as if I were talking to myself, too.
Part of the mixed water was taken into a clear glass bottle by Kizu-san for the later observation of its water crystals. Next, another portion of water was taken for a fountain located on the periphery of the Place. The third portion of water was taken for the Rhine River.
We surrounded the fountain. The water mixture that had received our vibration of Love, Thanks and Respect was poured into the fountain by Mr. and Mrs. Emoto. Simultaneously, Masaru dedicated his words of gratitude to the land and people of Liechtenstein. The blessed water that flowed into the fountain would permeate into the whole land of Liechtenstein with the vibration of Love and Thanks that was sent by the people all over the world.
Then, we walked to the bank of the Rhine River. The sun had set completely, and we saw a beautiful half moon in the sky.
On the bank of the Rhine River, Masaru had been holding the glass bottle of the blessed water on his head. It was as if he tried to bring all the vibration contained in this special water into his body.
Again, all the people said the following prayer out loud in German to the water mixture.
Water, we love you.
Rasmus poured the twice-blessed water into the Rhine River. Making a beautiful arc, the water was drawn into the Rhine River. It is a large river that originates from the Alps in Switzerland, runs through Liechtenstein, flowing along the borders of Austria, Germany and France, cuts across Germany and the Netherlands and then ends up in the Northern Sea. Finally, it is connected with all the waters on Earth.
It seemed as if we could see the vision that our Love and Thanks were delivered as light particles through the water into every corner of the world.
Last of all, we took a group photograph and completed our ceremony.
On behalf of our Project of Love and Thanks to Water, I would like to give our sincere gratitude to those who joined our Ceremony in Liechtenstein, to those who kindly sent their water to our Liechtenstein office, to those who dedicated their Love and Thanks in their own way at various locations, and to all the people who are concerned in our Project including you who are reading this article right now.
Thank you very much.
After we cleared up the place, we had a closed dinner party at a nearby restaurant just across the place.
We asked everyone their impression of the ceremony. They all said that it was really a touching ceremony. Mr. Michael Hamilton, a founder of Angel Valley Ministries who came from Sedona, Arizona with his wife Mrs. Amayra Hamilton, said "I could feel the oneness very strongly and perceive that people are really connected with each other." Jeanne, who is working with them made a comment, "He usually would not say such words." I was moved to hear that, as I really knew that the Ceremony had touched peoples' heart at a very deep level and allowed them to experience the oneness.
Finally, we drank a toast at a restaurant of a hotel where Mr. & Mrs. Emoto were staying.
After we returned to Japan, I.H.M. General Institute took water crystal photographs of the mixture of 251 different water before and after the prayer of Love, Thanks and Respect by all the participants. However, as there were many hard water samples included in the mixture (we could hardly observe any water crystals in water with a high salt concentration due to a physical reason), we transferred the vibration of the waters into distilled water using a Hado imprinting machine, MRA and observed its water crystals.
As with the mixed water that contained 251 waters sent from all over the world, we observed a partially crystallized structure with a broken edge and an empty core. Are we missing something at the present situation of the world?
On the other hand, the same water mixture after given the prayers by all the participants showed a hexagonal crystal structure with no broken part. It seems that the core was filled also by being dedicated the vibration of Love, Thanks and Respect.
On July 25, 2004, the Ceremony to send Love and Thanks to Water had been held at more than 66 different locations in at least 14 countries other than Liechtenstein. We are deeply grateful to the organizers and participants of each Ceremony.
This time, we had received as many as 100 different water samples from the USA. I think this is mainly due to the cooperation from Barbara Wolf of the Global Meditations Network. We give our deep gratitude to her.
Thank you very much.
