The Shape of Love: Discovering Who We Are, Where We Came From, and Where We're Going
This cutting-edge new work, by the author of the New York Times bestseller The Hidden Messages in Water, presents a revolutionary understanding of life and consciousness and provides answers to the most profound questions of existence.
Introduced in the bestselling The Hidden Messages in Water and the hit cult film What the Bleep Do We Know?, the groundbreaking work of Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto captured the popular imagination and launched a worldwide movement. Using high-speed photography, Dr. Emoto discovered that crystals formed in frozen water are affected by our thoughts, words, and feelings. Since humans and the earth are composed mostly of water, his findings have far-reaching ramifications for individuals, for human society, and for the global environment.
In The Shape of Love, Dr. Emoto shares new images from his research and for the first time draws out the significant lessons of his work. In a clear, conversational style, he interprets the messages hidden in his extraordinary photographs and explains how his discoveries can help us find answers to these eternal questions: Where did we come from? Why are we here? Where will we go after we die? Providing a new way of looking at such important issues as how we treat others and the earth itself, Dr. Emoto’s findings encourage the positive actions that spell a better future for all.
A magnificent follow-up to The Hidden Messages in Water, The Shape of Love is a fascinating investigation into the intersection of science and spirituality and its impact on our lives and our world.read more
Unfortunately, I didn't find this book as good as Emoto's others (those I've read). (Sorry, Dr. Emoto,)This was partly because there were bits about musical notes that I didn't understand, partly because of a long chapter expressing Emoto's personal views about the origins of our Earth. He has a theory that water came to Earth by way of comets, and this may well be true, and that the people, animals and so on came later. I agree that human beings originate from other solar systems or what not (See David Icke's books, among others), but not or at least not exclusively from the Big Dipper, as Emoto suggests.However, I learnt something important from his photo of the crystal formed (or rather not formed) when water was exposed to the words "Do it". I understand that my well-meaning advice to others, including my daughter, in difficult situations is perhaps not as helpful as I thought, since the photo shows that water,for one, wants to make its own mind up as to what to do. (Not that I would say to anyone that they HAD to do something). So thank you, Dr. Emoto.I was also inspired by the chapter "The power of prayer", where Emoto recounts the result of an experiment where a priest performs incantations and prayers directed to healing the water in the Fujiwara Dam. A week after the treatment, the body of a woman surfaced at the reservoir, the killer being apprehended shortly after. Amazingly, through Emoto's eyes, the water crystal picture prior to the treatment looked like a woman struggling and suffering. After the treatment, and the surfacing of the body, a crystal picture showed a merciful face the author thought resembled that of Mahatma Gandhi. Wondrous things happen in Emoto's world.So despite my reservations, I feel this is a worthwhile book and recommend it too to those interested in Emoto's work.read more

As author of several spirituality-cum-science titles including The Hidden Messages in Water, Emoto introduced the world to his claim that a sample of water is capable of responding to human words. Using a high-powered microscope camera, he demonstrated that water reacts to positive language by the formation of beautiful, snowflake-like crystals and to negative terms by forming ugly or distorted shapes. This breakthrough was featured in the hit underground film, What the Bleep Do We Know? While Emoto's earlier works were generally focused on health and healing, his new book attempts to extrapolate a religious narrative of the origins of life on Earth. The hypothesis-which includes the assertion that the water on earth was delivered by God in comets sent from somewhere near the Big Dipper, as well as the claim that humans were "sent to the earth in the form of water crystals"-is mostly incoherent and unsatisfying. Worse, it strays from the simplicity of his powerful earlier work with the water samples. Still, newcomers will be pleased that Emoto rehearses much of his earlier material, and serious fans will doubtless find his flights of fancy intriguing. 40 color photos, not seen by PW.
