Water Art – Observing Ice Patterns By Freezing Water

Waterart Our connection with Consciousness Observing ice Patterens by Freezing

Dear community,  

We are announcing a new project! It is called “Water Art”!

Water Art builds a relationship with Water, through communication and observation.  

Water Art encourages people to engage in playful communication with Water by creating images of ice crystals, playing with their own imagination, e.g. using an image, music or even by their thoughts. All that is needed is a Petri dish with Water, an open mindset, inspiration, freezer, and a camera. We invite you to give it a try!

By playing with Water, sharing thoughts, intentions, and imagination when using a Petri dish, freezer, and camera, people learn to communicate with Water. Hundreds of children (worldwide) have already learned to observe Water from entirely new perspectives using this technique.

Some of them have seen their own thoughts crystallized in ice. Seeing the response of Water, in the form of ice crystal images, brings the wonder of Water to life.

This gives them a very simple yet practical understanding of how their own thoughts can have creative power and it strengthens their self-confidence and admiration for nature. Thus, Water Art not only fosters creativity but also promotes Water awareness and consciousness.

For me, when personally experiencing a direct connection with Water through Water Art, touches the depths of my consciousness, and makes me feel humble and in awe towards the whole.

Water Art education

Water Art unlocks children’s Water awareness by letting them use their own imagination.

Learning by observing how our communication with Water results in an outcome, not only clearly demonstrates that Water is conscious, but directly influences mindset, social interactions, and our health. When children in elementary and secondary schools learn Water Art, the deeper lessons learned will have a profound impact on all future social interactions of humanity.

We believe that all children should have the opportunity to connect to Water, learn that they are Water, and become inspired by the wondrous behavior and patterns of freezing Water!

Therefore we are launching Water Art! Bringing Water Art education to schools, children, their parents, and the rest of humanity.

Children need connection and playfulness and wonder in their life right now! We will start with pilot projects in schools, extracurricular activities, special projects, and eventually aim for regular modules in the classroom.

Global social interaction, Water events and sharing Water Art

We will offer the ability to upload images to an online Water Art Gallery, and stimulate and facilitate local and global Water Art events. With these, we aim to inspire children to share their work, stories, and experiences in their school, city, region, country, continent, and the world.

Water Art origin

Water Art was discovered by Veda Austin (New Zealand). She is of Maori descent, an artist and Water researcher. And Veda wondered… How does Water communicate?

Veda’s first experience came about after holding a Petri dish in her hand and subsequently freezing the Water. The frozen Water showed an X-ray-like image of her hand.

Veda then started to explore other possibilities.

To the right you see how Water responded, after Veda put a Petri dish with Water on top of a photo of her friend. She received a beautiful ice crystal image that perfectly interpreted the photo.

Veda found that Water communicates in three different ways

Signature patterns

They can show the difference in Water quality. For example, the difference between spring Water, rain Water, filtered Water, radiated Water, etc.

How does this relate to us? To our health?

Artist expressions

They show images that Water has received  from the connection and impression given to the Water.

How does Water do this?

They show a symbolic language of Water. What does Water want to communicate with us?

When people from different countries and different languages communicate with Water, Water shows similar symbols, i.e. the hydroglyphs represent a new universal language.

Can Water respond to thought and music ?

In the Water Art video above, you see Veda’s experiment after Water listened to music.

  • Nahko – Great Spirit

Also shown is Veda’s experiment after thinking of a sailboat.
What do you see? And would you like to learn to be able to create images made of ice crystals using your thoughts too?

And there are even more possibilities.
When women use their saliva, the ice crystals show differences in their fertility. Different signature patterns and hydroglyphs appear when women are non-fertile, in their menstrual transitional phase, and when women are fertile.

These are only a small selection of over 38.000 examples…

Veda Austin compared to Masaru Emoto's research

Looking at Veda’s research, many, if not all, members of the World Water Community think about the research done by Masaru Emoto.

If you do not yet know Masaru Emoto’s work: He researched the effect of words, thoughts, sounds, and intentions on the formation of ice crystals and he claimed that human consciousness could affect the molecular structure of Water. Masaru Emoto’s research continues today by a few researchers.

Observing hidden messages in frozen water art.

Some great experiments can be done in a classroom. Such as having different bottles of Water with flowers or rice and adding different labels to the bottles and subsequently observing the effect on the rice or flower, showing that the labels have effect on the flowers and rice in the Water.

But generally the work of Emoto requires a temperature controlled room with low electromagnetic interference and a special microscope to be able to photograph the ice crystals.

The overall difference? Creating Water Art is simple!

The difference between the ice crystallography techniques of Masaru Emoto and Veda Austin is that Veda’s Crystallography technique is simple and anyone can do it, even children. No special microscope or temperature controlled room is needed; You only need a Petri dish with Water and a freezer.

When it comes down to having an open mindset to communicate with Water, then children between 8 and 14 simply “do it”; whilst from age 15 and older, we start to (over)think that “it” can not be done, it is impossible, or we simply “want it” too badly, trying to demand from Water a specific outcome, etc… but Water is FREE and can not be forced.

Veda says about this:

Using our thoughts to attempt forcing Water to create something we want works as well as demanding from someone to love us. 

Veda Austin’s methodology allows people to learn how their thoughts and mindset influence their outside world in an easy, practical, and hands-on way. When we have an open mindset, and use our imagination in freedom, Water surprises us with all her gifts. Therefore mindset is key!

Worldwide Water Art education

Our aim is to bring Water Art education to all schools worldwide, at lowest cost possible. 
Preferably we offer education to schools free of charge, but that doesn’t mean that it is free of cost. The estimated costs for developing a Water education line are € 50.000,-.

And since not all children speak or read English, we need the materials in 15 languages (videos voiced over and instruction documents translated): Arabic, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, Urdu.

Besides developing a Water education line, there are yearly costs for booklets, Petri dishes and support. Hence, in order to be able to give Water Art education to all schools worldwide, donors and sponsors are required. 

When you have read this far, you may be interested enough to share this blog, the video and help find people who are inspired to donate, sponsor, or give their time to the Water Art project.
