Our world is amazing

My friend Jill Monroe is an astrophysicist wannabe and a romance author. (A fabulous combination; her second book is coming out in April!)

We've been having a discussion on the Wet Noodle Posse loop about the power of positive thinking, and whether or not repeating affirmations and focusing on the good can actually make a difference in one's life. Many of us agree that there is a spiritual level to all of this--myself included--and others tend to focus more on what they can comprehend and understand using science and math.

At any rate, Jill was a self-identified skeptic, until she found a book called Hidden Messages in Water. In this book, a scientist took pictures of the molecular makeup of water. Amazing photos and images in itself; but then, he began to submerge printed copies of different words in the water. Peace, love, hate, fear...etc. And then he took photos of the molecules again.

The molecules actually changed! When beautiful words/thoughts were used, the molecules looked like crystals, snowflakes--but even more intricate and beautiful. When unsettling thoughts (like "you make me sick") were used, they turned thick and oily.

Our bodies are over 70% water. Think about it.

Colleen, the more I learn about quantum mechanics, the more I see the hand of God. We have an amazing world, don't we?
