Water: wild, weird and wonderful

I woke in the night so thirsty that my throat was on fire. Stumbling out of bed, I felt like the little mermaid in Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy tales — as though I were walking on knives. I was only 42, but I felt crippled as I stumbled to the kitchen just across the hall. I grabbed a mug from the rack and filled it with water from the tap. I took a swig, swallowed… and poured the rest away. It was disgusting, so full of chemicals I couldn’t bear to drink it. I resorted to orange juice from the carton in the fridge.

I went back to bed and lay there awake, wondering, not for the first time, what could be the matter. Why was I always thirsty? Why couldn’t I drink ordinary water? Was it me? Or was everyone feeling the same? I realised that I was drinking all sorts of other fluids, notably coffee, to avoid drinking water. Something was definitely wrong.

Changing the Quality of Water

Synchronicity perhaps, but a few days later a friend told me she had decided to sell water filters. I bought one that purified 250,000 litres (supposedly enough to last 3 years) and had it fitted onto the mains pipe so that all my drinking water was purified.

Within a few days of drinking water as and when I needed it, I noticed some miraculous results:

  • My headaches were gone. They had been constant and heavy. The doctor had suggested they were due to stress, and it was true that I had a lot of stress in my life. I’d managed to function through them, but now they had disappeared

  • Other aches and pains faded over the course of a few days. Previously my body had ached all over and my knees and feet were particularly painful, my shoulders and neck coming a very close second.

  • I was no longer thirsty

  • My skin was clearer

  • My eyes were brighter

  • My mood lightened

  • Food tasted better

  • I lost weight — I found I’d been eating instead of drinking. My consumption of coffee reduced considerably, and I found I preferred it less strong. I realised I’d been making it stronger to mask the taste of the water.

  • Although I felt better both physically and mentally and the water tasted so much better, I was aware of something missing from the water. The ‘something’ was indefinable. The more I tried to think what it was, the more puzzled I became.

Some properties of Water

I began to research the properties of water and amongst many other things, I discovered:

  • Every one of water’s properties is unique and they do not easily fit into the accepted view of physics. For instance, when it freezes it expands and thus is able to float on liquid water.

  • Water is the only substance on the planet that exists in three states, liquid, solid and gaseous.

  • Water has the highest surface tension of all liquids: it is the universal solvent because it dissolves more substances than any other liquid.

  • Water able to rise in the trunks of trees in defiance of Earth’s gravity. And most importantly

  • Water is more buoyant in the early morning and when it is cold.

  • Water has a memory.

Water has a memory

It was not long after the incident I’ve mentioned, Masuro Emoto [1] published his groundbreaking book Messages from Water. He was one of the first scientists to demonstrate that water has memory. In his laboratory he decided to flash freeze water, expecting to discover beautiful, shining hexagonal crystals like snow flakes. Unfortunately his first experiments were carried out on tap water and water from sources near big cities. To his dismay this water produced mis-formed crystals. It was only when he and his researchers froze water from pristine rivers and lakes that beautiful unique crystals were formed.

Since then, thousands of research experiments completed in laboratories around the world have shown that water receives and makes imprints of everything that occurs in the space around it. Any substance coming into contact with water, leaves a trace in the liquid. Any emotion does the same. In fact, any change surrounding the water is registered in it.

Our ancestors must have known this when they used silver vessels to turn ordinary water into healing water. According to Rustum Roy,(2) Professor of the State University of Pennsylvania, Member of the International Academy of Science USA:

“It is the best anti-biotic that is made. From Afghanistan to Iraq, the American army uses this water. One atom to 100 million will kill all the germs in a wound. This water can be used to keep infectious bugs from your hands. How can this be? The original view was that the chemical composition of the water is important. Now the current view is that that is nonsense: The structure of water is much more important than the chemical composition.”

The structure of water means the way in which its molecules are organised. Water molecules join together into groups called clusters. As Martin Chaplin,(3) Professor and Laboratory Chief of London University, UK explains:

“If you consider a cluster as a group of specific molecules, then it can survive only a short amount of time. But if you consider it as a structure, whereby molecules can leave and other molecules can come in at any time, the cluster can last effectively for a considerable period of time.”

These clusters work like memory cells in which water records and stores the whole history of its relationship with the world. Water clusters are similar to a malleable computer memory.

Wild Water v Water in Man-made Systems

Let us consider wild water for a moment. Magnificent, life-giving water. Water in its natural state. A rushing stream, perhaps? A sedately flowing river? Surf crashing on to a sandy beach? Or perhaps a Mediterranean beach of gently lapping waves.

In its natural state, water is never still: it moves in a spiralling fashion. Water flowing in a natural meandering river forms whirls and eddies as it dashes in a series of curves along its path: it never follows a straight path unless constrained by human interference.

This pattern can be seen throughout the whole natural world of which we are part, particularly in shellfish, snails, pine cones and climbing plants. The spiralling is caused by the effect of the Earth’s liquid core, as the Earth continually turns upon its axis. The effect of water spiralling in this way is to imbue it with natural life-force energy and bio-photons (light energy). It is living.

Contrast this with the water we use every day: water that makes a long and difficult journey through pipes before arriving in our homes.

Not so many years ago, human settlements could only happen where there was a natural source of water. But today this is not necessary because water can be transported for thousands of kilometres using high pressure. Whereas in Nature, rivers and streams always run along a smoothly curving course, water supply systems all have multiple right-angled turns. The natural structure of the water breaks down more and more with each such turn.

Water in man-made systems is degraded in other ways too: in many large cities the water flows through a closed loop system, which deteriorates the water even further. After undergoing aggressive chemical purification and passing through powerful filters, the water in these systems is returned to our homes, still remembering the chemicals and violence it was subjected to.

Even stronger, however, is the informational pollution that water accumulates as it flows down kilometres-long pipes through many thousands of businesses, houses and apartments.

Drops of water taken from any such water supply system will form crystals, but none of them will have beauty or symmetry: they will all be deformed. The same is true of bottled water. Its chemical composition can show it to be pure, natural and with some extra minerals. But in reality, whether piped or bottled, this is dead water in which there is no energy or life.

Most of the Human Body is Water

Depending on age, a human being is between seventy and ninety per cent water, or enough to fill the body from the feet to just below the shoulders. So it is not surprising that an adult needs to drink approximately two litres of water a day in order to sustain normal life functions. More water is absorbed through the skin during bathing or showering. Just think what has happened to the water they are using. This must have an effect on human health and the health of our special planet too.

On reflection

It would be interesting to know how much information is held in the water in the beautiful places shown below. First, the Pool of Reflection in Sydney’s Hyde Park is part of the ANZAC War Memorial: a shallow, rectangular, man-made pool right in the middle of the city that reflects the sky and surrounding trees. Although the whizz of traffic is close by, the calming effect of the water as you stare into it, blots out all but your inner thoughts.

When I was six, my parents took me to visit the Taj Mahal in India. The sun was blazing down as we walked beside the beautiful pool that stretched in front of the building.

Simply gazing at the photographs of these pools brings a sense of peace, but beautiful and calming as these pools are, they are so obviously fashioned, confined and restricted that they lack the beauty and life force of freely-flowing water. Like a caged wild animal, there is something raw and wonderful missing.

These are man-made pools that honour the dead. Perhaps it is appropriate that the water they contain is ‘dead’ too.

The future

Luckily, as more research is being done into the amazing properties of water, the work of the visionary Viktor Schauberger (4) is encouraging many researchers and engineers to look deeply into how this quality of aliveness can be restored to our streams, rivers, lakes and seas and particularly to our tap water.

I have never regretted investing in an implosion device and many visitors comment on the taste and quality of our drinking water.

Of course, the most important thing is to ensure that we ‘manage’ wild water so that it retains its life force for the benefit of all Nature, the health of the environment, and of ourselves.
