[A picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you]
Years ago, I watched "What the bleep do we know?" and it planted the seed that THE SECRET grew into a fundamental shift in everything I believe. It filled in the gaps that Christianity had always tiptoed around and made me understand there was so much more than anyone had ever let on.
But before I had my epiphany, I learned of the works of Masaru Emoto, a Japanese author who is famous for studying the effects of positive and negative emotion on water and illustrating his results by freezing and photographing the water molecules. Over and over he realized that positively charged water - that is water that had been shown prayer, love, compassion - formed beautiful snowflakes. Negatively charged water - that which was show belittling or threatening emotions - was unable to achieve the same level of beauty.
This set my mind in motion. If a glass of water could exhibit such a difference from emotional stimuli, how would the human body react, seeing we are 95% water. If a single molecule can become such a unique and beautiful snowflake, imagine the potential in each of us. And for people who are abused, degraded, neglected, unloved - just how detrimental these feelings are to the person as a whole.
This comparison changes the way I see other people, the way I react with them. It has changed the way I think about myself. When we feel down on ourselves, we are causing the most damage, perpetuating the decline of our own positive crystallization. I'm sorry, Tyler Durden, we really are unique and beautiful snowflakes. And we have the ability to be exceptionally more.
