Do healing waters really exist? And if so, where? Science Weighs In

Legends of magical waters that heal the mind, body and spirit, and even turn back the clock, are weaved into stories from around the world. These fascinating tales have inspired many grand voyages to far-flung corners of the planet in search of the ultimate elixir.

Even Alexander the Great spent much of his life looking for a river that healed the ravages of age. The 16th century Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon was also on a mission to find a miracle spring, and was convinced that it was in Florida of all places. And they wouldn’t be the first or last explorers to embark on this adventure.

But do healing waters really exist? And if so, where?

In Freddy Silva’s book, “The Divine Blueprint,” he argues that these magical waters hug up against many of the world’s ancient temples, stone circles and sanctuaries. In fact, our ancestors intentionally chose these power places for their metaphysical properties.

Magical Hot Spots in the Earth

At these otherworldly spots, many believe that the veil is just a bit thinner, giving us access to invisible dimensions beyond the 3D world. More importantly, they give our healing and supernatural abilities a boost.

And it’s true that you get twilight goosebumps when walking around the Egyptian pyramids or St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City (which was actually built upon an ancient mound for the goddess Cybele). But your awe-inspiring wonder may be sparked by more than ingenious art and architecture.

Many sacred sites sit upon invisible electromagnetic paths that criss-cross the face of the Earth, called leylines. These forces connect us to the earth’s energetic grid, and influence the body’s electromagnetic field. When you stand on or near leylines, your emotions are heightened and your overall health is improved. Even the plants seem to grow better along these magical channels!

But our ancestors chose these precise locations to build temples for another reason — water. You can almost always find water near sacred sites from the Egyptian pyramids, stone circles and the Navajo altar in Monument Valley. And this is actually really impractical. Building a temple on soggy soil doesn’t exactly make for a solid foundation. In any case, these ancient sites might highlight where we can find the infamous healing waters from legends. But is the water near these ancient sites any more special than normal water from the faucet? Let’s find out!

Ordinary Water vs. Healing Water

According to tests using infrared spectroscopy, water near sacred sites has very different properties than ordinary water. It is pure, contains natural minerals, and absorbs light at different frequencies. The hydrogen atoms in these healing water molecules also spin at a different orientation, which affects the electrical charge and in turn, the electromagnetic field.

Lastly, the experiments by the Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto prove that concentrated thought can alter the crystalline structure of water. In other words, water retains information. That means that the water from a sacred site contains the memories of millions of affirmations and prayers over hundreds and maybe even thousands of years. And since our bodies consist of two-thirds water, and 90% of the brain, it’s no wonder they have a powerful affect on us!

But even before scientific proof, the waters surrounding these sacred sites have attracted pilgrims for centuries.
