Snow's Secret Vibrations

A deep layer of snow blankets a pristine winter woods landscape; what a favorite scene for us all this time of year! A beautiful and serene wonder of nature occurs when colorless water paints the world white with the magical frosting of the first snowfall. We have an innate attraction to such natural beauty giving us peace, security and joy.

Perfect snowflakes are energetic vibrations converted into substance —crystallized pure water. Energy turns into matter and vice versa in the continuous dance of the universe surrounding us. Think of the simple snowflake. At first glance it is a fluffy white dot, but on closer observation the snowflake is a beautiful geometric ornament.

You may have heard that freezing snow crystals can be affected by beautiful music or strong emotions. This phenomenon is expressed in the work of Masaru Emoto (The Hidden Messages in Water, Beyond Words Publishing, 2004). Emoto found that the crystal structure formed when water droplets freeze could be significantly impacted by exposing the water to vibrational energy in the form of music and emotions.

His experiments exposed crystallizing water to beautiful music, dramatically affecting the shape of the crystals that were formed: delicate crystals with Mozart, distinct geometries with Beethoven and elegant details with Chopin, as if snow "feels" invisible musical vibrations and is sculpted by them. Likewise, exposing positive emotions and words corresponded to beautiful, symmetrically-shaped crystals while negative thoughts produced malformed, disjointed snowflakes. Snowflakes, in their infinite variety, reflect the endless feelings, thoughts and music that are part of us and our world.

We cannot see sound vibrations or detect emotional energies, but they are as real as the snowflakes that are shaped by their influences. Each snowflake is nature’s artwork, displaying a perfect crystalline shape bound with heavenly music. It is obvious why a pristine winter scene looks so pure and healthy; harmony and resonance from perfect snow crystals transform the landscape and bathe everything in joyful energy.

A logical extension of Emoto's work is that a healthy body is reinforced by positive emotions, natural beauty and harmonious music. Better wellness is possible through vibrational energy. All living things, from the most complex to the lowliest microorganisms, are made from, and require water to sustain life. Our body is 70% water, strongly influenced by the tides of its surrounding environment.

Current scientific thought suggests that the material world is held together by harmony or resonance — that mysterious force that determines how subatomic particles relate to and bond with one another and controls how oscillations of galactic gravitational fields interact. These very same invisible forces rule in our subjective worlds, like music changing our dispositions. Just as no two snowflakes are exactly alike, no two people's energies are identical. Their beauty is in their variety and endless expressions to tune our bodies, grow our minds, harmonize our souls and make perfect beauty in nature.

Enjoy the blessings of a song in a snowflake. The universe is one of matter and energy — inseparable, indivisible, one.

Stopping By The Woods On A Snowy Evening
By Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
