Plant Experiments: The Power of Words

Many of you may be familiar with Dr. Masaru Emoto’s water experiments, where he exposed water to different words, music, names, prayers, blessings, etc., and then photographed the way the water crystallized when frozen.  Here’s an example:
water20pics1   These experiments continue to fascinate me, so I decided to replicate them in my own way – with plants.
I went out into the yard and found two weeds that were the same size. (I have a witness to the fact that they were identical in size and appearance, but sadly I do not have a ‘before’ picture.  Next time though!)  Then I found two similar containers and proceeded to plant the weeds in them and cover the outside of both of them with everything I could think of – one, with everything negative, the other with everything positive. This included phrases, words, names, etc.


Then I put them in the window and they each received the same amount of light and water.  About two weeks later, I was forced to move the plants outside, and this was the result2


The one on the left is the “negative” plant, and the one on the right is the “positive”.  As you can see, the plant exposed to all the negative words seems shriveled and sickly looking. In fact, I don’t think it grew at all.  While the positive plant definitely grew and seemed vibrant and healthy – even leaning its branches away from the negative plant.

Why this response?  Because everything is energy


Thoughts, words, sounds, colors, all of these things are a unique form of energy, vibration, and frequency.  Expose yourself, water, or a plant to an energy that is “negative”, you will see negative result.  Like attracts like.
The same can be said for the positive, and that is how experiments like this work.

That morning, after I woke up I went over to look at them and noticed that the negative plant was covered in little specks.  Upon closer examination, I realized that they were baby spiders, and immediately removed the plants from the house.  Here they are, notice the webbing?


At first I was confused.  Why did the spiders appear on the negative plant but not the positive one?  Shouldn’t it be the other way around, and the other creatures moving into the plant be a sign of vitality and thriving life?  Then I remembered how I feel about spiders.  I can’t even tolerate them.  To me they are interesting enough, but they give me the creeps.  To put it bluntly, I would rather deal with any rodent, reptile, bug, whatever, over spiders.  And then I realized I know a lot of other people who felt that way about spiders, and I remembered Masaru Emoto’s water crystals that were exposed to the names “Adolf Hitler” and “Mother Teresa”.  Why would  a name create such a drastic difference in responses?  Because of the general opinion, the energy surrounding that name.  If someone I didn’t even know came up to me on the street, looked me in the face and said, “Adolf Hitler”, my brain would immediately fill with images of concentration camps, swastikas, and mass graves.  On the other hand if someone said “Mother Teresa”, my mind would fill with images of a compassionate woman with a child in her arms.  Make sense now?  It did to me.

Makes you wonder what fills people’s minds when they hear your name, doesn’t it?  Something to think about, about what comes out of your mouth, and the impression you leave people with each day.  What we say is arguably the biggest way we impress ourselves on people.  Here’s a few verses I found on the subject, and these are only a few examples:

Ephesians 4:29
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Proverbs 12:18
The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Proverbs 16:24
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

    • I would think any plants would respond to this experiment, but I have only tried it on weeds so far. Let me know how your experiments go! 🙂

  1. I tried it this summer with two ferns… I named them Adam and Cathy, pulling names from East of Eden. Adam got the good water and Cathy got the bad water. By the end of summer, Cathy was browned and Adam was green and vibrant. Here’s the hard part: When I saw that Cathy was browning, I began to use good water on Cathy so that I could try to reverse what had happened.. I felt bad for what I had done. But regardless of how much good water I used and how much I spoke sweetly to this plant, I couldn’t bring it back. I’m still trying, but it looks so pitiful and brown 😦 Adam on the other hand is happy and green.

    • I didn’t go into this with that much planning, I’m afraid, as I didn’t really expect much out of it. I ended up being pleasantly surprised with the results though, and I would say that they are definitely

  2. But the one with negative comments also has more paper around it so it’s preventing light more than the positive one. That one seems more transparent and less paper around it

    • That is true, but plants use sunlight for photosynthesis with their leaves, not their roots, so I would assume the difference in that respect would be minor, if at all. Thanks for pointing it out though, I’ve been meaning to re-create this experiment anyway. ❤
