The power of our words and thoughts and, most of all, their vibration is also the very essence of Abraham’s teachings on the Law of Attraction.
I previously mentioned that sound can alter cellular and molecular structure in my post entitled The Many Benefits of Chanting but Masaru Emoto has famously demonstrated the immense power of our words, thoughts and intentions through his experiments into the effect of human consciousness on the molecular structure of water. His research has shown that water exposed to positive words and thoughts results in visually pleasing crystals being formed when that water is frozen, and that negative intention yields “ugly” frozen crystal formations. Masaru Emoto’s book entitled Messages from Water and the Universe, contains photographs of these crystals and Emoto’s work also appeared in the movie What the Bleep Do We Know!?.

A later experiment by Masaru Emoto had him pouring water over three identical samples of cooked rice and then every day for a month he said, “Thank you,” to one sample, “You’re an idiot,” to the second and simply ignored the third. The results are astounding:
