Water to Water
(an almost found poem)
by Rose Mary Boehm

Experiments showed that human thoughts and intentions
can physically alter the molecular structure of water.
Dr Masuru Emoto

Water covers about 71 per cent of the earth’s surface. Around 60 per cent of the human body is water. Scientists now believe that water has a memory, meaning that what once was seen as a simple commodity has now been closely examined to reveal a mind-blowing truth: Water picks up and stores information from all the places through which it travels, suggesting that everyone is globally connected by the water in the human body. Water retains a memory for approximately 5.6 months. By placing positive intentions into water, we can change our planet’s life.

I sit at the ocean’s edge and let my water connect to the sea,
to the sand, the green growth along the rock cut,
the seagull, the pelicans, the fish, the dog that passes…

I send my thoughts of love and wonder to Fukushima
or Chernobyl perhaps, to the land threatened by the rise
of sea levels, the islands that are evacuating…

Wherever water touches land, where rivers flow,
where lakes and clouds form, where people sicken,
I reach out, screaming silently: let it be true.

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: I had ‘”met” Dr Masuru Emoto’s work many years ago and was absolutely stunned. In the meantime quite a few scientists have become interested in his discoveries and came to their own, confirming conclusions. And if they’re right, it stands to reason that we can use water as a planetary healing agent. What we need is a change of consciousness and positive intention. We ourselves consist of approximately 60% water, so we can easily commune with our planet which consists of even more. Let’s put our minds to work, we don’t have much time left.
