July 22nd officially declared International Love and Gratitude Day to honor the life and work of Dr. Masaru Emoto

July 22nd, 2015 – Los Angeles/Tokyo -The Love Planet Foundation in co-ordination with The Emoto Peace Project have officially declared July 22nd International Love and Gratitude Day to honor the life and work of world renown author and water researcher Dr. Masaru Emoto.

They are dedicating this day to memorialize Dr. Emoto by creating a social media campaign to spread his powerful messages of love, gratitude and peace around the world. They further encourage schools, groups, communities and cities to get involved and create events around this day to educate on the messages of water, the power of our words, and inspire others to share compassion and kindness.

Dr. Masaru Emoto was a world renown water researcher and the New York Times Best Selling author of “The Messages from Water”, “The Hidden Messages in Water”, “The Shape of Love”, “The True Power of Water” and “Love Thyself”. He was born July 22, 1943 in Yokohama, Japan and passed away at the age of 71 on October 17th, 2014. He gained worldwide acclaim through his groundbreaking research and the discovery that water is deeply connected to our individual and collective consciousness. His water-crystal resonance research consisted of exposing water to different words and vibrations, then freezing and examining the aesthetics of the results with microscopic photography. His research documented that thoughts, words, emotions, prayer and music have a direct effect on the molecular structure of water. And since our bodies and our planet are mostly water, his theories proved our thoughts and words affect not only ourselves, but also the world around us.

His stunning water-crystal photographs have enchanted millions of people across the globe. His research also showed that two of the most beautiful and transformative words were “love and gratitude”. His message was that if we were to live these words everyday, we could create peace within ourselves, each other and our world.

He also authored two children’s books, “The Secret of Water for the Children of the World” and “The Message from Water” children’s version which was printed in over 75 countries and is available free of charge through the effort of his non profit organization,The Emoto Peace Project. http://emotopeaceproject.net/

Dr. Emoto is globally recognized as having been a true pioneer of water research, spirituality and consciousness. His theories and philosophies have brought this generation a new and greater understanding of the power of our thoughts, words, and intentions, and our ability to affect not only water, but the quality of our lives and the world we live in. Over his lifetime he was recognized and embraced internationally by people all over the world, including leading scientists, physicists, dignitaries, celebrities, world leaders, and the Dalai Lama.

A website and social media pages have been formed in the US as a central hub where people can find and share beautiful images that inspire his Love and Gratitude message. http://loveandgratitudeday.com/

The intention is to promote the Official Love and Gratitude Day every year and create a worldwide awareness by sharing simple acts of kindness and the powerful, heart opening phrases, “Thank you” and “I love you”.
