Negative thoughts, words, and feelings produce fragmented, disharmonious crystal formations. For generations, in most of the cultures around the world, we have seen a concept of the Holy Water. Christians have holy water which is sanctified by a priest, and in Hindu culture the Prasad (food offered to the God and then consumed by the worshipers) and Tirtham (holy water) from the temple which have vibrations of positive thoughts, prayers, love, care, attention, concern and blessings in them. The food / water from a holy place does not have any magical ingredients in it, but when we eat food or drink water from any holy place, we feel positive, refreshed, energetic, happy and blessed. It is because this food has a special power of positivity in it, by the way of positive thoughts, prayers, love, care, attention, concern and blessings for mankind.
