"Message from Water" and Birth Psychology


Have you heard about "Message from Water"? I have a feeling that many of my friends already knew about this and fascinated with Dr. Masaru Emoto's experiments and his book, The Hidden Messages in Water.


Because I DID and I was quite shocked to read this book.


For those of you who do not know about Dr. Emoto, here is a quote from the Emoto Peace Project to show their core message for the world.




As both we human beings and the earth are almost 70% water, we can improve both our environment and ourselves and make it the better place for all; animals, insects, trees, plants, mineral, and all beings to live if we change our everyday attitudes, words, and consciousness in a better way because we all live on this earth.

And when we talk about consciousness, I feel it is very important to find out when we start becoming "conscious". When exactly do we become conscious?

I have researched consciousness study while attending The Evergreen State College and graduated in the summer of 2013. I thought I was well informed about it...



I was completely WRONG! ...on top of that, I never imagined that I am going to have a desire to keep researching this after graduation. BUT! It is happening, NOW!!! The Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health is offering many courses through their Prenatal and Perinatal Learning Center™. I have been taking the online program called Prenatal and Perinatal Educator (PPNE) Certificate Program, which has 11 modules focusing on the importance of the influences during conception, pregnancy, birth, and the first year of life affect our health throughout our lifespans and lay the foundation for our personal development, affecting future generations. Started taking this PPNE Certificate Program shifted my understanding quite dramatically!

I have 4 more modules to finish, but I am so excited to share what I have been learning about for Japanese audiences.

Many people read the Japanese translated version of "The Secret Life of The Unborn Child" which became available about 40 years ago. Since more than 240,000 copies have been sold in Japan alone, you can probably easily imagine how many people actually aware of the consciousness of unborn babies at least in Japan.




Yet, there wasn't a single person who kept their thirst for learning Birth Psychology from Japan.






...Why isn't this important message reaching the general public?


I assume this is because researchers are trying to pass on this knowledge to pregnant mothers in a way that is easy to understand as they pursue their expertise, but this requires a huge amount of interdisciplinary knowledge, which is too much for a pregnant woman to take in during her pregnancy.


Therefore, if Japanese people who already have knowledge of Prenatal Memory for about 20 years receive this information and disseminate it in their respective fields of activity, the flexibility of Japan and its sensitivity to parenting will gradually be noticed by people around the world. How is it going to happen? I think slowly but gradually, just as Ms. Hayashi recently found out about Birth Psychology.

Ms. Michiko Hayashi, the Global Director for the Emoto Peace Project, interviewed Dr. Thomas R. Verny last week and released the link on her YouTube channel with the title:


Dr. Thomas Verny, author of THE SECRET LIFE OF UNBORN CHILD, cellular intelligence & consciousness


Ms. Hayashi has been collaborating lectures with Dr. Akira Ikegawa for quite some time in Japan and through one of Dr. Ikegawa's online interviews, he mentioned Dr. Thomas Verny's research (from 12:41). Dr. Akira Ikegawa talks about quantum physics and Unborn baby's memories. (Japanese)


It is so wonderful to feel that we are expanding, resonating, and sharing such important information, globally! This is a goal that I could never achieve on my own, but through these wonderful connections, my dream will become a reality, and I will continue to push forward to make this a global project worthy of the name, Prenatal Memory Global Project.
