I stumbled across his study a few years ago and bought some of his books, my favorite being "water crystal healing" as it comes with 2 CDs of classical music which really help to fix my mood sometimes.. His study actually saved my life, my ex was trying to kill me and I thought to use positive words and phrases to change his vibrational structure and make him stop... It worked like something out of a movie, my words were a weapon and he panicked and covered my mouth, but it made the evil that had overcome him disappear.. Which I now realize was brought out by my own fear and negative emotions.. I'm not sure if the words are as much responsible for the response I got, or if it was my own state of calmness and compassion, but either way, it was Masaru's study alone that made me think of it and for that I will always have much respect and gratitude for Masaru Emoto.
Anyway, there are some skeptics over his studies, but I know that it is real simply due to my own personal experience. I keep positive words written on my filtered water dispenser. :)
Oh and also, a good way to obtain water is via the roof on your home, earthships have a great water collection method, and I think that all houses will be built similar to that in the near future.. Even a normal house you could collect a decent amount of water simply by putting barrels at the end of your gutters(especially where I live in washington). For those that don't get enough rain, we can control the weather with our thoughts and emotions and send rain to the dryer areas.. We just need to live more permaculturally and look for ways to work with the world rather than against it.. :)
