"If there is magic on this planet,
it is contained in water."

Loren Eisley

Living water is the elixir that facilitates creative mind. Without sufficient water in the body and brain, the electrical activity of creative thought is greatly impaired. 70 to 90 percent of all organic matter is water. The brain is approximately 83 percent water. A dehydrated brain cannot think or process information correctly.

Elixir of Life


Let's explore the properties of water that make it the elixir of life. In doing so we understand its potency as a carrier of the life force and vehicle for creative mind. Dr. Alexis Carrel, the scientist who won the Nobel prize for keeping the cells of a chicken heart alive for 34 years stated, "The cell is immortal. It is merely the fluid (water) in which it floats that degenerates. Renew this fluid at intervals, give the cells what they require for nutrition and, as far as we know, the pulsation of life may go on forever." That's a potent statement. Stop for a moment and contemplate what he said. If the water in the cells is renewed properly cellular life as we know it is immortal.

The hydrogen atom is the key to the value of water as a life giving and preserving force. The word hydrogen comes from the Greek meaning "water-former". Water is composed of hydrogen and oxygen. Water is formed when hydrogen is burned by oxygen. Water molecules consists of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom, H2O.

Water has the unique ability to form weak bonds with other molecules. It is this ability that allows water to disassemble and rearrange the essential chemistry of life. Thus it is called the universal solvent. Water is also a perfect conductor of electricity. This is one of its great roles in facilitating thought. Thought is the electrical potential shared between brain neurons through electrochemical transmitters. It is essential that the electrical potential of brain chemistry be present for clear thought to transpire.

It is electricity that carries the message down the neuronal axon to the synaptic cleft. This impulse or electrical charge has been measured at approximately a tenth of a volt from bottom to top. The impulse only lasts for about 1/1000 of a second. The axon itself has many tiny channels or gates in its cell wall that regulate the relationship of sodium (Na) molecules on the interior with potassium (K) molecules on the exterior of the axon. When this chemical balance is changed and sodium flows into the axon, increasing the interior concentration, an electrical charge is built up. It is the continual movement of this charge down the axon, receiving sodium at each new channel like a domino effect, that pushes the chemical neurotransmitters to the end of the axon and out the synapse.

Elixir of Life

At this point neighboring dendrites pick up the neurotransmitters and continue this process throughout the brain. An average cortical neuron has an axon with perhaps 10,000 side branches or dendrites. A neuron in a selective attention system, or the brain-stem arousal system, has a lot more side branches that average perhaps a million. Without this electrical current moving through the neuron and axon channels, thought is impossible. You will also notice on the image above that the Calcium (Ca) molecule is also very important to clear thought. If the brain does not have enough calcium present, the electrical process of thought is impaired.

Dr. Hayashi, a Heart Specialist and Director of the Water Institute of Japan, believes that water treated with electrolysis has essential benefits to health. The process of electrolysis passes filtered water into a chamber with a platinum coated titanium electrode. There the positive ions gather at the negative electrodes to produce cathodic or reduced water. Negatively charged ions, gather at the positive electrode to make anodic or oxydized water. Ionized cathodic water has an excess of electrons, thus a higher Ph, making it an alkaline substance. Negatively ionized, or alkaline, substances also have greater electrical potential, not to mention their ability to act as anti-oxidants.


Free radicals in the body are created when oxygen atoms missing an electron in the outer shell begin to rob electrons from neighboring molecules. As they move throughout the body grabbing electrons the cells they deplete are damaged as a result. Putting water in the body with an excess of negative electrons allows the free radical oxygen scavengers to fill their electron shells without robbing from healthy molecules.

Dr. Patrick Flanagan has produced an excellent product by the name of Microhydrin that will introduce a large amount of negative hydrogen electrons into the body, without the need for any electronic equipment. It comes in a powdered form and can be added to his microclustered water as the best form of free radical scavanging drink I have yet to experience. Flanagan studied the waters of the Hunza's, who live well past 100 years old, and discovered that it was the quality of their water that added to their longevity. After extensive research he devised a way to create a similar water that is nanocolloidal in structure. This clustered water is called Crystal Energy and when mixed with distilled water creates a product of extraordinary properties, allowing all the micronutrients we ingest to be immediately available to the cells. Adding Microhydrin to this clustered water adds further to it's ability give a powerful antioxidant boost to the body. If you are interested in learning more about this special water send an email and you can receive the details.

Research has also shown that water has "memory" and that the shape of the water molecule has a great influence on how the water is assimmilated in the body. When "healing waters" from around the world are examined on a molecular scale their structure tends to form a beautifully symetrica six pointed star. In the few locations where these specific waters do exist naturally, the people are known to lead long, vibrant lives without many of the health problems that are prevalent in western society. See article on Clustered Water ™

I also own a living water system based on the work of Victor Schaueberger. This unit transforms the water from my well, through vorticular motion, producing a vitalized and pure substance for drinking. Using both this system and the micro-clustered water, not only has my health in general improved with the intake of living water, but my ability for clear thought that generates creative solutions has improved as well. If you were to do nothing else to improve your health and mental clarity than to ingest pure living water, you would greatly enhance your creativity as well as your life span.
