EWAO Continued Research Supports The ‘Water Has Memory’ Theory These amazing discoveries about the properties of water could revolutionize our world! By MindBodySoulSpirit Filmmaker and mystic ecologist David Sereda discussed some of the amazing properties of water– it may actually have memory and consciousness, he said. Human beings are mostly made up of water and he suggested that restructured water could have healing properties on their bodies. An example that Serada gives is how restructured water can transform polluted water into clean, fresh, and palatable drinking water! Following up on the groundbreaking work of Masaru Emoto, Sereda exposed water to the sounds of the sun, and the water crystals changed to a beatific shape.

Beth Moon Photographs The World’s Oldest Trees Illuminated By Starlight Ancient trees affected by cosmic rays are the subject of The “Diamond Nights” project by San Francisco-based photographer Beth Moon. Moon has spent the last 14 years photographing the world’s oldest trees in daylight, but this series captures them at night. Her photos feature primarily baobab and quiver trees in South Africa, Botswana, and Namibia. “Our relationship to the wild has always played an important role in my work. This series was inspired by two fascinating, scientific studies that connect tree growth with celestial movement and astral cycles,” explains Moon on her website. The first study concluded that cosmic radiation impacts tree growth even more than annual temperature or rainfall; the second found that tree buds change size and shape directly correlating to the moon and planets. A guide lead Moon to each location during the day. More info: | Facebook | Amazon (h/t: mymodmet) Thanks for sharing! 3x per week 30,000,000+ monthly readers Error sending email
