According to some, introverts make up about half of the population, even though much of society glamorizes a highly extroverted lifestyle.

If Thoughts Can Do This to Water, Imagine What They Can Do to Your Body

Masaru Emoto was a Japanese author and researcher, well known for his experiments involving the effects of human consciousness on the molecular structure of water. Emoto’s early work explored his belief that water could react to positive thoughts, words, and music and that polluted water could be cleaned through prayer and positive visualization.
