Emoto said that water was a “blueprint for our reality”[clarification needed] and that emotional “energies” and “vibrations” could change the physical structure of water. Emoto’s water crystal experiments consisted of exposing water in glasses to different words, pictures, or music and then freezing and examining the aesthetic properties of the resulting crystals with microscopic photography. Emoto made the claim that water exposed to positive speech and thoughts would result in visually “pleasing” crystals being formed when that water was frozen and that negative intention would yield “ugly” frozen crystal formations.
Emoto held that different water sources would produce different crystalline structures when frozen. For example, he held that a water sample from a mountain stream when frozen would show structures of beautifully shaped geometric design, but those structures would be distorted and randomly formed if the sample were taken from a polluted water source. Emoto held that these changes could be eliminated by exposing water to ultraviolet light or certain electromagnetic waves.
In 2008, Emoto published his findings in the Journal of Scientific Exploration, a peer reviewed scientific journal of the Society for Scientific Exploration. The work was conducted and authored by Masaru Emoto and Takashige Kizu of Emoto’s own IHM General Institute, along with Dean Radin and Nancy Lund of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, which is on Stephen Barrett’s Quackwatch list of questionable organizations. In the experiment, more than 1,900 of Emoto’s followers focused feelings of gratitude toward water stored in bottles, which was then frozen and its crystalline formations inspected. The gratitude-focused crystals were rated slightly more “beautiful” than one set of control crystals and slightly less “beautiful” than the other controls. A
The use of gems to vitalize water is a traditional art which was already known to the ancient Greek and wise men and women during medieval times. Recently, this old tradition has been rediscovered. Gemstones have the ability to store energy. That effect makes quartz watches work, for example. Each type of gem, by nature, has its unique kind of energetic information. The gems inside the VitaJuwel vials transfer their information to the water that surrounds the vial and, thus, improve the waters’ vitalization level. An effect which regular water drinkers might even be able to taste!
A very significant enhancement of both, biological and technical water quality, is the result of the treatment with VitaJuwel – gemstone vial. The water sample is reaching a quality level otherwise only known from natural spring water. Compared to the neutral sample as well as other comparable tap water, a significant increase in quality can be observed.

Crier D. Krystal Starr, a chakra healer, plays her Tibetan singing bowls inside iChakras on Main Street.
In the bustling Bay Area, it seems as if everyone is busy with something. They’re running to their next meeting, furiously typing up this week’s budget or crafting tomorrow’s next big idea. In the midst of Silicon Valley’s hectic energy, some people may seek holistic healing to resolve the chaos around them. Until last month, Los Altos lacked a streamlined holistic healing space aimed at Silicon Valley workers, according to D. Krystal Starr, owner of iChakras. Starr opened her holistic healing center June 17 at the corner of Main and First streets. As the name implies, iChakras specializes in healing the chakras – seven energy centers in the body that each control an aspect of life, a notion of Indian origins. Starr offers a meditation space in her Zen Room and a range of products for customers to use at home. Each of Starr’s products, from her Magic Bath line to her individual crystals, aligns with a certain chakra and heals users from the outside in, Starr said. Using her expertise in chakras, Starr recommends products based on what she believes her customers need.“I’m not just a store for crystals,” she said. “I want people to walk in and have a healing experience. They’ll leave with an insight of, ‘Oh, I didn’t even know I needed that.’” Starr also invites customers to enter the Zen Room – a small room lined with square floor pillows for sitting – to meditate. At the front of the room are seven colored Tibetan singing bowls – one for each chakra. When struck with a wand, the singing bowls emit a note that lingers for several seconds. According to Starr, the vibrations from the bowls recalibrate an individual’s chakras when they have fallen out of place. On a television, Starr plays her own meditation tutorial videos that guide the room inhabitants in their meditation experience. Occasionally, she offers live demonstrations of her using the Tibetan singing bowls to meditate and answers questions about the process.“I’m trying to get people to come (into the Zen Room) to meditate and socialize,” Starr said. “People like to socialize at a coffee shop or a bookstore. Why not come here to meditate and relax?”HISTORY OF HEALINGWhile Starr is new to Los Altos, she’s a veteran of holistic healing. Her mother, also a crystal and chakra healer, raised Starr surrounded by crystals and Tibetan singing bowls. As Starr got older, she began to study healing on her own and earned accreditation in the holistic healing industry. She holds a Chakra and Aura Healing Certificate from Luna Holistics, which is certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. Prior to opening iChakras, Starr operated out of her office in Mountain View, where she offered one-on-one meditation sessions.As with any practice, chakra and crystal healing has its skeptics. But Starr doesn’t involve herself in trying to convince them.“It’s not for everybody – it’s as simple as that,” she said. “If it’s not for you, it’s not for you. I am not in the business of trying to change people’s way of living. If they’re going to feel it, they’re going to feel it. You can’t force it on everybody.”Skeptics aside, Starr said she enjoys watching her clients have fun with her products and services. She added that clients have reported having their problems resolved within one or two days after using her products.“(Customers) really start to see things with more clarity,” she said. “They buy (products) because it’s fun, but it really transforms the way they think. It’s not only making a difference in their life, they’re having fun with it as well. It’s only been two weeks, but we’re having so much fun.”
This is a most intriguing book! I would very much like to know how many people are helped by it, and how deeply. The subject itself is fascinating: the spinal centers in our bodies; how they affect us; the present and potential ways they affect our consciousness. Paramhansa Yogananda, in his world- known book Autobiography of a Yogi, states that thoughts are universally, not individually, rooted. This means that our brains do not produce the ideas that come out of them: they merely express concepts that belong to whatever level of consciousness we are living at, at the time. Any change in our level of consciousness alters instantly our very view of reality. The levels of reality we perceive depend entirely on where, in the spine, our energy and consciousness are centered. The chakras, viewed outwardly, simply channel energy to different regions of the body: the heart, the stomach, the sex organs, the legs, etc. Viewed inwardly, however—that is to say, when that same energy is withdrawn to the spine and directed upward toward the brain—the chakras become portals that open onto ever-increasing enlightenment. The spinal chakras, therefore, are of central importance to the science of yoga.I pray that this book will help many people better to know their own inner selves.
