Toddler Proven “Power of Positive Talk” Experiment #1 Inspired by Dr. Masaru Emoto Water molecule Experiment on Rice…

I have been struggling with my son using words as a way to hurt peoples feelings. I did not know what to do about his recent habit, all I knew is that it made me sad. I do not want my child to think it is good to use words as a weapon! I had tried several ways to talk to him about his new form of communication but nothing seemed to get through to him. Then I remembered the experiment by Dr. Masaru Emoto so I decided to give it a try with my 3 year old.

Each day we would wake up and as soon as we went downstairs for breakfast or snack we would speak to the jars we had labeled with either “I HATE You” or “I Love You”. But we would only speak nice, kind, loving and enduring words to the jar labeled “Love”. And we would yell at, tell nasty things to and say ugly words to the jar labeled “Hate”. Dr. Masaru Emoto had 3 jars & he ignored the 3 jars but I thought this concept would not be understood by a 3 year old, so we decided to skip the 3rd jar.

Negative talk damages and alters the make-up of molecules

As the days progressed we started to notice that the jar labeled with “I HATE You” was pretty dirty and cloudy in color. But the “I Love You” jar was barely effected at all. My son pointed this observation out as often as he could, constantly asking, “Mommy why is the “I hate You” jar so yuki? I would explain to him how our words can effect even the smallest of things like a few grains of rice… and rice isn’t even alive so that should tell you something.

Notice all the “sludge” on the I Hate you jar?

After a couple weeks of this routine the “I Love You” jar was finally starting to get cloudy and milky, so it was time to end the experiment. Here is a video of the final talk my son & I had about the Power of Positive Talk.

The final result of this experiment is profound and the interesting thing about the outcome is my now 4 year old son does not use words to hurt people very often at all. Children pick things up so easily. We adults take children for granted, underestimate them and sometimes believe that they cannot comprehend the world for what it is. But this experiment proves (at least to me) that children can learn to correct their behavior, they are Compassionate beings and when they realize that their actions hurt another being they STOP that behavior. Children are┬ánot the little “sociopaths” we can sometimes believe them to be… I challenge you speak to children like they are “real people” that they understand cognitive thought and if you have a little one (or big ones) I challenge you to do this experiment with them and see how they react…

Until Next Time… Peace be with You…
