Scientific Proof: The Power of Positivity Alters Our Physical World The most famous work of Dr. Emoto was published in 1999 and is called ‘Messages from Water,’ which has sold millions of copies all over the world.

#SIWSDay5 – Snowflake Quotes

Quotes About Snowflakes “Perfectly Imperfect We have all heard that no two snowflakes are alike. Each snowflake takes the perfect form for the maximum efficiency and effectiveness for its journey.

They are on the same journey, but each takes a different path.

One of these parallels is of snowflakes and us. We, too, are all headed…

#Day2 – 27 Days of Snowflakes

Snowflakes with a Cause – by Kathleen Tennant – Artist I know it isn’t Christmas any more but the snowflakes are still falling in many parts of Canada and the United States these days. However, this new art piece I have created really has nothing to do with a season and everything to do with raising money for an important cause.  Mental health seems to be a hot topic these days.  Awareness and education is totally needed to erase the stigma surrounding those who sufferer from mental health issues.  From day one I have supported Carol Todd and her desire to carry on her daughter’s dream of helping people.  Carol and I were chatting the other day and she asked what I thought of making a “second edition” of Snowflakes for a Cause.  Carol works tirelessly for the charity named after her daughter, Amanda Todd.  After Amanda died, Carol literally threw herself…
