Sprinkled with Hippy Water

I thought this story from Boing Boing would be appropriate for Holy Week.

“Claire Brightwater” bottled water has gone new-age with the concept of holy water.  The label reads: “This water has been programmed with music, crystals and prayers for good health, happiness, creative energy and prosperity.”  Sold at two Whole Foods Markets in NYC, Here is the New York Times excerpt on how Clair Brightwater water becomes so powerful:

It is a complicated process. Once the bottles arrive from their source near Saratoga Springs, N.Y., Ms. Brightwater said, she lays out tumbled stones that she has “programmed for love, health and prosperity” around and on top of each case.She burns sage and sweet grass, herbs used by the Native Americans, to clarify and purify the energy of the water, and prays for its drinkers to experience good health, good luck and prosperity. She said she then asks “the Great Spirit to help feed the hungry children, keep the waters clean and to protect the two- and four-legged on this planet.”

She plays CDs of Native American and Buddhist healing chants for 12 hours a day, until the cases of water are delivered.

Ms. Brightwater has found a powerful distribution channel for her water: two Whole Foods Markets in the city have started carrying it this year. Bottled water, measured in units, is the company’s top-selling item, and she said she is already hearing from appreciative shoppers. “So many people have e-mailed me to tell me they can feel the energy flowing through them when they drink the water,” she said. “I’m astounded.”

    That’s not all that out there. This Japanese scientist has actually performed studies on water crystals and how they form when the water is a container with a positive label(like love, happiness) vs water crystals formed when the water has negative labels (hate)…he found that the positive water crystals were more uniform and pretty and the negative ones were all chaotic. So if she’s SINGING to her water, those must be some happy molecules!

    I would say she is astounded b/c it is a crock that she is selling

    Yes, she is probably also feeling astounded from her native “herbs.”
