I have always been a believer in the power of the word. I’m am constantly trying to get my daughters to talk to each other with love, even when they are at each others throats. So when I came across an article about the scientific proof that words can alter the physical world around us, I took notice. It was a simple experiment conducted by a researcher and alternative healer from Japan, Dr. Masaru Emoto. He added water to three jars of rice and said “thank you” to the first jar, “you fool” to the second jar, and ignored the third. The results were amazing. After 30 days, the rice that was told “Thank you” was barely changed, while the others grew rotten.
