Cleaning up Japan's Mother Lake
By the time you read this, I will have arrived in Tokyo for my first 'live' water Intention Experiment. Plans for this historic event began 21 months ago in June 2008, when Dr. Masaru Emoto and I were speaking at an event in Hamburg, Germany.
He arranged to meet me as soon as I arrived, and it was then that he proposed an ambitious plan: to set up the first live water Intention Experiment on the United Nation's World Water Day on March 22, 2010.
He had in mind a special conference in Lake Biwa, Japan, to clean up Japan's 'Mother' lake. Lake Biwa, one of the world's oldest lakes, is home to more than a thousand animal species and supplies water to 14 million Japanese residents.
Nevertheless, as Dr. Emoto explained, since 1983, after rapid urbanization of the surrounding land, domestic and industrial waste has changed the population of microorganisms in the lake, causing outbreaks of red tides, water bloom and water weeds and a moldy odor.
These discharges from home and industry have dumped high levels of nitrogen and phosphorus into the lake, altering the population of microorganism and algae.
Recent laws now regulate the amount of nitrogen and phosphorus in discharges from factories and businesses and also from domestic detergents, fertilizers and waste. Nevertheless, attempts to restore the water quality to Lake Biwa have not reached projected targets.
Can thoughts clean up the water?
Dr. Emoto decided to enlist me and the Intention Experiments to be used for this purpose. Although he himself had carried out ground-breaking demonstrations about the power of thought on water, he wished to see a true scientific experiment about this.
So all those months ago, we agreed to carry out this experiment. And now this historic event is about to come to pass.
I will be speaking in front of hundreds at our conference. But I've also arranged for all of you to take part.
Our web team will be supplied with a photo of the sample of the lake water - the same sample we'll be sending intention to at our event in Japan. If you join us, you will be sending the exact same intention with thousands of people all around the globe.
If you have already signed up for one of our Clean Water Experiments, all you need to do is come one hour earlier and sign on, wait for the experiment to begin and follow instructions.
If you haven't, please sign up today by following instructions on:
Here's the time of the experiment in your time zones. Please mark down the date and time now. If you are outside these time zones, please consult www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzc.tzc
One hour before the experiment is due to begin, please login, to avoid a cyber traffic jam.
You may leave your computer and then come back right before the start of the experiment. Then just follow instructions. We'll be controlling the pages from our end. The experiment will take 20 minutes in total.
