# happywater is now being made at the new Fresh Earth store in Blairgowrie, Jo’burg.
Bring your own container and fill up with living water. Or buy it in our iconic glass bottles.
# Having a function (wedding, birthday, staff party etc)? Why not put happywater on the table? It offers great water with an empowering message of happiness in a beautiful re-usable glass bottle for guests to take home (and remind them of your event every time they use it).
Welcome to the world of happywater – living water, purified, re-revitalized and re-mineralized.
By applying the ideas and techniques of some of the world’s leading water researchers, we take water on a journey of purification and enrichment to restore it to the life-giving essence that once flowed through ancient rivers and glaciers long before Man began to wreak havoc on the planet’s fragile resources.
We are what we drink
The human body is 70% water (the brain is 80%). You could say we are water. And we are, truly, what we drink.
happywater is different. It’s the result of a multi-faceted process that simulates the formation of living water by Nature, imbuing it with subtle vibrational energies and enriching it with a complex mineral balance. And it is made locally from existing water resources.
The fresh water catastrophe
Our planet’s fresh water supply is in a disastrous state and we are increasingly relying on a closed system of recycled, chemically-treated water. when excreted into the municipal water system, it can carry hormone and drug residues which mix with heavy metals, pesticides and other industrial pollutants as well as disease-causing micro-organisms. This toxic soup requires some serious cleaning to make it potable.
Filtered waters: Water filters, reverse osmosis, ionization and distillation provide a vital first line of defence against viral and bacterial contamination, and also remove chlorine (and its by-products) as well as some toxic chemicals and heavy metals from the water. But what sort of water are we left with?
To counter this, a more recent and fashionable trend has seen the introduction of filter systems that “dial-up” the pH of water to high alkaline levels (a pH of 8 +).
Various claims have been made about the benefits of these super-alkaline waters, but this, too ,goes against the research and philosophy that underpin happywater: we believe Nature knows best – and the natural state of water is slightly acidic or slightly alkaline – never extreme (bear in mind that pH is a logarithmic measurement – a 1 digit difference is in fact a 10-fold change, so a pH of 5 is 10 times higher than a pH of 4.) At happywater we aim for a pH range of 7.4-7.8.
Bottled/Prepared Water: Most bottled waters on supermarket shelves are simply waters processed by the methods (especially RO) described above. Minerals are sometimes added back, but in a coarse and often unbalanced form which the body really cannot absorb or use. The result is a lifeless substance of little benefit to the human body apart from basic hydration.
Spring Water: Bottled at a certified source, spring water is presumed to be pure and natural, though in truth it’s unlikely there is any water on this planet that has been able to escape the ravages of pollution/contamination. More concerning, however, is the carbon footprint generated by the transport of these spring waters from remote (usually mountain) areas to major centres. This is an unsustainable abuse of a precious resource. Our planet cannot afford the luxury of moving water often tens of thousands of kilometres from source to consumer.
The ideas behind happywater
The key principles behind the making of happywater are:
Water as living energy
Water is a vital, energized substance, continuously transforming from liquid to vapour (evaporation) to liquid (condensation) or ice/snow (freezing) in an endless cycle as it embraces the planet in all its guises, from icebergs and glaciers to rivers, lakes, dewdrops and rainclouds.
Much of the research into the energetic properties of water was done by Austrian environmentalist Viktor Schauberger, pictured here, who died in 1959. He demonstrated not only that living, energized water has extraordinary properties (see Resources below), but that, by copying Nature’s dynamic processes, one can “engineer” living water from lifeless water.
At the centre of Schauberger’s work was his understanding and harnessing of the implosive energy of THE spiralling vortices (mini-tornados) created by river turbulence as water cascades over rocks and other natural obstacles, absorbing minerals and the energies of sunlight and oxygen.
happywater is inspired by Schauberger’s philosophy and work.
Dr Emoto’s research led him to conclude that water receives “imprints” from its surroundings that are held in memory and directly influence the quality of the water.
Sound/music/prayer/thought/intention, or even words shouted out or written down, can affect it. Photographs taken of the crystalline structure of water will reflect these positive or negative imprints by revealing either harmonious, jewel-like hexagons, or distorted, broken patterns.
How we make happywater
The picture above shows our happywater plant in Richmond, Johannesburg. The various purification/enrichment techniques are explained below.
The Galtech opal gemstone cartridge is very effective in the treatment of lime and the reduction (not elimination) of calcium and magnesium in the water. It also prevents the growth of micro-organisms. Unlike other gemstones, opal does not have a crystal structure and can absorb up to 20% of its weight in water, which ensures that the water flowing through the filter gets maximum exposure to the gemstone.
Re-energize and Re-vitalize
The close-up picture here shows an example of the spiral helix that fits inside the copper pipes, creating the necessary turbulence that energises the water.
Exposing the water to light and air (picture sunlight dancing off a bubbling stream) helps re-establish the coherent crystalline patterns revealed by Dr Emoto.
Throughout the re-energising process, we envelop the water in a gentle “blanket” of sound, from classical music and meditative chants, creating positive imprints and a vibrationally-balanced water. We also imprint on the water the words Love, Peace and Gratitude, words that Dr Emoto found had an especially positive impact on the crystalline structure of the water (these words are also imprinted on the happywater bottles).
Re-mineralise and Balance
F. Now we move the water through its final stage – re-mineralisation. Recognising that living water requires much more than the basic minerals (calcium, magnesium, chloride etc), we feed the water through a chamber filled with ceramic beads containing a wide spectrum of minerals and trace elements.
The ceramic beads are composed of over 20 different elements such as zeolite, silica, tourmaline, silver and pearl calcium. As the water races through the chamber, it naturally scours the elements from the surface of the ceramic beads, mimicking a mountain stream absorbing minerals as it tumbles over rocks in the water.
The elements help re-establish the pH of the water, creating a mildly alkaline liquid with a pH of approx 7.5, which is the balance one would typically find in pristine rivers.
