On January 30th, Lynne McTaggart of "Living the Field", along with other participants, carried out an intention experiemnt. The experiment was the 19th such experiment to date. The experiment was designed to see if, solely through the power of intention, a beaker of water could have it's temperature and / or pH lowered one point. Many volunteers throughout the world participated. The measurements were taken and the data analyzed bh a team at the University of Arizona at Tuscon.This was called the "Water into Wine" experiment because the participants were asked to think about changing the pH of water so that it tasted more acidic like wine.
The university lab set up two beakers of tap water, one labeled as "Beaker 1" and the other labeled as "Beaker 2". They were hooked up to a computer which could measure both temperature and ph at a rate of twice per second. One beaker was to be the control and the other would be the focus of the experiment. The lab workers were not told which beaker was which.
The group of participants carried out the experiment for twenty minutes. There was a five minute "power-up" and then five minutes of explaining how the experiment would work. Then for ten minutes, participnts focued on the image of Beaker #2 and were told to focus on the intention of lowering the pH and/or temperature by at least one point or degree. They were also asked to focus on a pH scale and asked to visualize the pH moving toward the acidic side of the scale.
Here is the graph of the results:
This clearly shows that the pH of the target beaker (the red line) was measurably lower during the experiment than the control beaker (the green line) and went back to normal at the end of the experiment.
What does this tell us? That the energy of our thoughts is very powerful. This is a natural phenomenon. It is a skill or ability that we were designed or evolved to have. It is not an ability we have to cultivate, it is an ability that we all have because we exist. Because everything has energy, even our thoughts, there is no limit to what we can do, especially if we work together.
To me it is fascinating that there is now scientific proof of this effect. No longer do we have to depend upon explanations that involve words like "supernatural" or "miraculous" because we now know there is an explanation. This is why Jesus was able to say that whatever you believe in you shall receive.
It is easy to see now that our thoughts, beliefs and feelings can effect the weather, how our plants grow, how the others that we live with think, feel and behave, how we get along with our animals, and ultimately, how countries get along and cooperate together.
Is this change instantaneous? It depends upon the situation and the people and forces involved. We all know our bodies are too acidic, so the ability to alter pH even by a point could have a profound effect on our health. This experiment involved only ten minutes of directed intention. Imagine what one could do with sustained, daily meditation, and with conciously altering our usually random, daily thoughts?
This means we have to take responsibility for the state of our world. If we have family members that we argue with, employers who don't treat us very nice, or are constantly involved in one mishap or another, or often comment that we have "bad luck", how much of that are we attracting by focusing on it? How many of us have something unpleasant happen to us, and then we focus on it for the rest of the day? Getting those negative things out out of our minds is important if we want to change our quality of life.
Try repeating to ourself over and over, after you have experienced something you perceive to be negative, "I am a magnet for positive change." Get an image in your mind of positive energy rushing toward you and sticking to you. Realize that it is like a shield, protecting you from picking up anything negative. See that negative event sliding off you, as if it's slippery and can't stick. Nothing can touch you if you don't let it. You are a messenger of light.
