Paranormal activity and sightings of ghosts are more than often reported near to water. Many investigators, including ourselves undertake experiments that include water because water is believed to be a conduit for spirits to manifest because its a natural element.
Experiments such as water scrying should be taken more seriously because there is claims that water holds Memory and may be affected by our emotions!
Water Theory and Water Memory
When you think of water holding a memory just think of it like the stone tape theory.
The stone tape theory is a theory that ghosts and hauntings are analogous to tape recordings, and that mental impressions during emotional or traumatic events can be projected in the form of energy, “recorded” onto rocks and other items and “replayed” under certain conditions. The water theory is very similar, many believe ghosts can imprint a memory in water or use water to form themselves in.
Water memory was first proposed in 1988 by French Immunologist Jacques Benveniste. Benveniste proposed that a serial dilution, used in homeopathic treatment would “remember” what substances/molecules were added in. During treatment a Sample would be diluted until not a single molecule remained. His test used Human antibodies. Those tested had an allergic response to the dilution.
These serial dilutions are made with distilled water or alcohol, vigorously shaken in a process called succussion. Succussion was believed to activate the “vital energy” of the diluted substance, thus increasing potency of the homeopathic treatment.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, given mainly in tablet form, with the aim of triggering the body’s natural system of healing.
The findings were published in Nature journal in 1988. Colleagues of Benveniste challenged the findings calling it pseudoscience. He stated that tests defied established laws of chemistry. The publisher, John Maddox, demanded replication of this experiment. Under direct supervision of a hand picked team they called “ghost busters”. These “ghost busters” included Maddox himself, James Randi, a paranormal researcher and physicist, Walter W. Stewart. Multiple complaints of distractions, magic tricks and witch hunting plagued all future tests.
A $1 million dollar prize was offered for any party that could replicate positive results to the same test.
A chemist from the University of Belfast, Madeline Ennis almost claimed $1million dollar prize in 1999. In 2010, years later, Ennis’ point of view is still that: (…) there appears to be some evidence for an effect – albeit small in some cases(….)
In 2011, Research from the Aerospace Institute of the University of Stuttgart in Germany supported the theory that water has a memory.
The youtube video below, shows some fascinating experiments with water “memory” from the Aerospace Institute of the University of Stuttgart. The results with the different types of flowers immersed in water are particularly evocative.
If Benveniste is right, just think what that might mean. More than 70 percent of our planet is covered in water. The human body is made of 60 percent water; the brain, 70 percent; the lungs, nearly 90 percent.
Our energies might be traveling out of our brains and bodies and into those of other living beings of all kinds through imprints on this magical substance. The oceans and rivers and rains might be transporting all manner of information throughout the world.
However, many are extremely skeptical of the university’s claims with other sceptics stating the imprints that can be visually seen is nothing more than a pattern that is formed from the surface the water has been put on.
Is Water affected by our Emotions?
It has not be sciencfically proven that water can be affected by our emotions, even though some sites will lead you to believe it has.
The most famous experiments done on the power of the human mind to physically impact water were led by Dr. Masaru Emoto, head of the Hado Institute (IHM Corporation) in Tokyo, Japan, in the 1990s.
He exposed water samples to various emotional stimuli—music, words in several languages representing both positive and negative emotions, et cetera. He found that when the water samples were frozen, those that had been exposed to positive human intentions formed beautiful crystals, while those exposed to negative human intentions formed distorted and ugly crystals.
Containers of rice were subjected to the same stimuli and left for 30 days, after which time the levels of mold and decay were compared. Again, the rice exposed to good thoughts remained unspoilt much longer and the other two groups (one exposed to negative thoughts, the other ignored) became black with mould. One of the lessons drawn from the experiment was that neglect and indifference can be as damaging as overt abuse.
Emoto‘s experiments was extremely critized but Emoto still sticks by his claims and even stated on his site that he believed our emotions could influence a vessels pH levels.
With such claims, if water does hold memory/past information and does interact with our emotions then it provides a good base to why make water scrying experiments or experiments closer to water may need to be took more seriously in the paranormal community.
For instance, if a death has occurred in a river and you attempt river scrying in this area. If memory and information is stored in water, surely such a negative emotion from that person who dying may be stored and maybe that information can be relayed back to us via scrying.
A perfect example of this, is when we conducted a pond scrying session in wombwell woods, the pond does have a documented death. We used a UV light for a different light spectrum which provided ourselves with some interesting captures. Take a look below
