What is the difference between water revitalization and water purity?

Water revitalization is different from water purity. Water supplies that are contaminated with any natural or human-made chemicals, minerals, pharmaceuticals, etc. must be treated to remove the impurities, and there are a variety of physical and chemical methods for doing this.  This is water purification.  Water revitalization is the act of restoring the structure of water and shifting its energetic memory of water (whether it is purified or not) back to a more natural and vibrant state.  When water structure is in tact, it is considered living water - water that is capable of carrying hydrogen and other gasses as well as salts (minerals) and information to our cells.  Revitalized water has been shown to have profoundly different effects on living systems than water that is not revitalized.  

Why is water revitalization important?

The human body is 65-75% water and 99% of the molecules in our body are water.  Our energy levels and all of our biological systems rely on it.  Yet the majority of our modern water, whether it is bottled or piped into our homes has lost most if not all of its vitality or life force.   Living water, water that maintains a crystalline structure, is more effective at carrying nutrients like salts/minerals and gasses (hydrogen and oxygen) into the cells.  Doesn't it make sense to consume living water - water that is better absorbed by the body and more hydrating, nourishing and energizing - than water that has lost most or all of it's life force?  

What we take into your body has vibration, and these vibrations affect your overall state of wellness and connectedness.  Consuming food and water of higher vibration (life force) supports you in many ways, both consciously and unconsciously.

Does drinking revitalized water have an effect on the purification process of the physical body?

High quality drinking water - re-vitalized water - is very important because it supports the purification processes of the body, which is essential for health and well being. The vital or structured water molecule rotates clockwise, whereas toxic agents within the body rotate counter-clockwise. Clockwise-turning water molecules help eliminate the counter-clockwise-turning toxins, and make it easier for the body to eliminate them.

About Nature's Design Glassware

Nature's Design glassware products are unique masterpieces of form and harmony - like musical compositions in glass.  No other household glassware is made with such specific intention and awareness of the effects of the form on what will be held within it.  More than just "beautiful", and "different", the design principles used in the creation of this glassware are the same as those found throughout the natural world - the Golden Ratio of nature itself.

How is the Nature's Design re-vitalizing effect different from other methods?

Conventional water quality systems are usually integrated into the "water circuit", which is whatever physical system is used to move, store and cleanse water (for example, the pumps pipes, tanks and fixtures of a typical household water system).  The stabilizing effect (stabilization of the vitalizing or quality improvement effect) of these systems is rather small, because the water is only exposed to these vitalizing components for a relatively short period of time as it is moving through the system.  After vitalization, the water continues its way through pressurized pipes and tanks, which weaken the effect.  The water in Nature's Design carafes, however, remains in the vitalizing field for as long as you choose, which makes the effect more sustainable.  The vitalization process in Nature's Design carafes is realized without any other influencing factors, such as electricity or magnetism. 

How long does the vitalizing effect last?

The revitalizing effect of Nature's Design water lasts approximately one week outside of the glassware, if the water is stored in another glass container.  Some people put Nature's Design water into a plastic bottle to carry it with them.  Due to the "counter-clockwise-turning" energy of plastic bottles, the Nature's Design vitalizing effect is then limited to one day.  The effect can last between 1-2 days in stainless steel containers.  Use your own intuition and experience, which are your best guides.  

How long does it take to vitalize water in a Nature's Design carafe?

It takes 3 minutes for normal tap or bottled water to regain its vitality in a Nature's Design carafe.

Is there a difference between vitalizing water in a Nature's Design carafe and in a Nature's Design tumbler or drinking glass?

The vitalizing effect of Nature's Design carafes is twice as strong as in a Nature's Design tumbler or drinking glass.  

What is the effect on liquid placed in Nature's Design glassware?

Nature's Design glassware increases the biological vibrancy of whatever is placed within it, as well as the area around it.  That means the glassware revitalizes the natural quality of water and other liquids by the effect of the resonance waves which pass through the liquid within it, and which harmonize with and amplify each other.  This generates increased vitality and a larger force field, improving the quality and biological value of any liquid.  This resonance field is experienced within the glassware and is also transferred to the surrounding room in which the glassware is placed.  This effect of Nature's Design glassware forms is due to their specific design, which is based on universal principles of musical and geometric harmony (also referred to as Sacred Geometry). 

What is the composition of the glass used in Nature's Design glassware products?

Depending upon the product, Nature's Design glassware is composed of either standard unleaded quartz glass, or standard unleaded borosilicate glass.  There is no lead or other heavy metals used in the manufacturing of this glassware.  The shape and the wight of the mouth-blown products may differ slightly from item to item, which is a mark of their originality and the fact that they are hand-made. 

Where is Nature's Design glassware made?

For more than 200 years, the glass-works of Nagelberg, a small town in the Austrian Waldviertel area, has been known for producing hand-crafted glass products of highest quality.  This long tradition has helped regional glassblowers to gain deep insights into the natural synergy of wood and quartz sand, and has enabled them to create unique masterpieces in glass.  

Inspired by this hand-made glass manufacturing process, the founder of Nature's Design energy design Thomas Chochola developed an interest and affection for the synergy of music, water and glass.  Nagelberg is the place where the first Nature's Design products were created.  This beautiful town remains to this day one of the most important manufacturing sites for Nature's Design glassware and new product development.  Due to the increasing popularity of Nature's Design glassware products, they are now manufactured in a variety of glass-works in other countries as well, including Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia and China.  

What is the significance of the curved surface in the design?

The six- curve surface structure of Nature's Design is a unique and purposeful feature, resulting from the intention of the overall design - to create a form in harmony with the underlying principles of nature, "Nature's Design".   Proportional relationships between the 6 segments of the design are based on one of the expressions of Sacred Geometry which is known as the Fibonacci Sequence, or more commonly known as the GOLDEN RATIO.  This same ratio or set of proportions is seen, for example, in the nautilus shell and numerous other living creatures and aspects of nature. 

Sacred Geometry and the Golden Ratio Design

What is "Sacred Geometry"?

Geometry is a branch of mathematics which has to do with mathematical relationships and a ,mathematical understanding of our physical world and universe.  According to Wikipedia, geometry is "...concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space".  (www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geometry) "Sacred Geometry" has to do with an understanding that different shapes, forms, positions, etc. have different energetic qualities, and effects on living organisms, such as people and animals.  The ancient Chinese art Feng Shui is an example of one type of a Sacred Geometry system.  Sacred Geometry also has to do with the form and energetics of living systems, and how they are supported by - and interact with - the Earth, moon, the sun and other heavenly bodies.  

Sacred Geometry has many different expressions or ways of being understood.  One example of this is what is referred to as the "Fibonacci Sequence", also called the Golden Ratio or Golden Mean.  Popularized by the Italian mathematician Leonardo Pisano Fibonacci in the first half of the 13th century, this sequence is a series of numbers - starting with the number 1 - in which every in the sequence is the sum of the two previous numbers.  So the first several numbers in this sequence are: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34 and so on.  More recent studies of this particular sequence and the proportions represented by it have discovered that it is virtually universal in the natural world.  Everything that is alive and growing - from the proportions of the human body, to leaves, flowers, plants, even the outlines of continents and other major features of the Earth itself - the Golden Ratio (Fibonacci Sequence) can be found within it.  Could this particular set of proportional relations (sequence of numbers) be considered a "blueprint for life"? (see The Power of  Limits by Gyorgy Doczi, in the Suggested Reading list) Nature's Design energy design glassware is all based on the Golden Ratio design.  The Flower of Life symbol which is sometimes used on the bottom of different pieces of this glassware is another powerful expression of what is called Sacred Geometry.  

Does every form have an energetic effect?

Yes, every form has an effect on its environment and the energetic flows within that environment.  The old Masters of Design were aware of this power of form, and used this knowledge and awareness in their architecture, which can be seen in the monuments of the ancient world and throughout the cathedrals of Europe.  This concept is the basis for the centuries-old Eastern art of Feng Shui - the influence of the energy and feeling, based on the placement and form of objects in a space.  Feng Shui can be considered another expression of Sacred Geometry.  

The Flower of Life Symbol

What is the purpose of the "Flower of Life" symbol on the bottom of the carafes and glasses?

The "Flower of Life" design is considered one of the most powerful symbols of sacred geometry, and is one of the most ancient,  It has been found in ancient temples and monuments all over the world, including the walls and monuments of the temple to the Egyptian god Osiris (the Osirian temple).  It is a symbolic representation of the source and interconnectedness of all life.  In many cultures of the world, the Flower of Life symbol has been known and used for energizing and stabilizing food and water.  This symbol is emblazoned on the bottom of the Nature's Design carafes, tumblers, drinking glasses and energy plates in a variety of colors.  Each color has a specific intention effect on the water (or whatever is in the carafe) and the surrounding area.

 The effects and symbolism of the different Flower of Life colors:

Platinum FOL: Fired into the glass at 1112°F (600°C).  In color therapy, the color platinum has been associated with self-love, acceptance, and "self-esteem".  

Gold FOL: 24-carat gold, fired into the glass at 1112°F (600°C).  In color therapy, the color gold has been associated with strengthening of the immune system and stimulation of higher consciousness for the evolution of Self.  This Gold FOL vibrates with the 3 highest chakras within the physical body.  

White FOL: Fired into the glass at 1022°F (550°C).  In color therapy, the color white has been associated with the health of the physical and emotional bodies, and healing generally.  It is also associated with the Spirit of Self.

Rainbow FOL: The multi-colored or "Rainbow" version of the flower of life is specifically designed for children and the "Inner Child" in adults.  This color palette stimulates the energy and experience of joy.  In Europe this Carafe is referred to as the "Happy Alladin".  

Using your Nature's Design Glassware

What liquids can I put into Nature's Design carafes and Nature's Design tumblers?

You can use our products with food, water, juices, adn wine - even pet food!  The Nature's Design glassware which is made with borosilicate glass cannot withstand hot liquids.  These include the Nature's Design UNIVERSE, Nature's Design BEAUTY, and DELICATE carafes, and the Nature's Design DRINKING STRAW.  The DELICATE carafe can be used with the TEALIGHT WARMER TRIPOD to heat liquids and keep them warm.  

Can I use a Nature's Design GOLDEN ALLADIN with a HAPPY tumbler or is it better to combine a carafe and a tumbler from the same series?

You can combine Nature's Design products in any way you like, and notice the different effects that different combinations have.  

What is the best way to clean my Nature's Design products? 

We recommend using citric acid or sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to keep your Nature's design products clean.  Baking soda has an antibacterial effect and dissolves calcified residues easily.  For cleaning, put a tablespoon of citric acid or baking soda into hot water, then add cold water, put it into the Nature's Design carafe or tumbler and leave it there for 2-12 hours.  Make sure you wash it out completely before using it again.  You can also use mild dish detergents, as with other household glass products, although detergents do not have the same decalcifying effects as bicarbonate.  We do not recommend placing glassware in the automatic dishwasher.  

Where is the best place to put a Nature's Design carafe in a room?

In order to benefit from the effect of Nature's Design products in rooms, place the carafe within 6 feet (2 meters) of you.  

About ANCHI Crystals

How can crystals impact water?

ANCHI Crystals when placed in close proximity, have the ability to structure water, enhancing its life force or "Chi".  These ancient crystals are also known to have an equal effect on the human body (and all living things), restoring harmony and aligning as well as balancing the Chakras.  This ability to structure or "organize" water and other living things has to do with something called epitaxy. It is scientifically explained best by experts like Dr. Rustum Roy in the field of water science. 

In their book "Dancing with Water" Pangman and Evans refer to Dr. Roy on the science of how crystals interact with water:

"In his 2005 literature review on the structure of water, Dr. Rustum Roy from Penn State University discussed the significance of a well-known but often overlooked phenomenon known as epitaxy.  Epitaxy is the transfer of atomic structural information from the surface of one material to a liquid - without the transfer of any of material.  In other words, by providing a structural pattern or template, it is possible to induce an entire body of water to crystallize in a pre-determined pattern.  Epitaxy explains how quartz crystals are able to convey structural information to water."

What does the name ANCHI mean?

ANCHI is an acronym for "Ancient Chi".  Chi is the name for the vital force thought to be inherent in all things, according to Taoism and other Chinese doctrines, as well as an increasing number of western perspectives.  It is considered the pre-existing force in the Universe from which all life comes.  The unimpeded circulation of Chi and a balance of its negative and positive forms in the body are held to be essential to good health in traditional Chinese medicine.  The Ancient Chi referred to in the name ANCHI is the 1.6 billion year old geological imprint of the ANCHI Field that contains the original ordained life building energy patterns of Earth.  These patterns were transferred and encoded into the community of over 50 different minerals found at the unique ANCHI Crystal site.  The beneficial properties of ANCHI Crystals positively affect whatever body that is near them, be it human, animal, plant, or water.  

What makes ANCHI Crystals unique?

Dr. Rustum Roy offered a scientific explanation as to the uniqueness of ANCHI Crystals.  In scientific terms, each place on Earth has its own geomagnetic field that contains a distinguishing set of characteristics, like a thumbprint.  In rare instances, the geomagnetic pattern is so strong that it transfers the characteristics of that site into the crystals, thus creating a unique mineralogical geo-imprint.  This unique geo-imprint is the source of ANCHI Crystals' Field.  Many people buy minerals and/or crystals for their specific properties.  In the case of ANCHI Crystals, it is not duplicated in any other gemstone and distinguishes ANCHI Crystals from all other crystals and minerals in the world.  Just as Dead Sea Salts can only come from the Dead Sea, ANCHI Crystals are found only at the ANCHI Crystals site.  

How do ANCHI Crystals work?

Dr. Rustum Roy of Penn State University explained that ANCHI Crystals have "epitaxial" properties.  If you Google "epitaxial" you will get sites of super conductor companies.  Why?  What do super conductors have in common with ANCHI Crystals?  The word epitaxial indicates the ability to template, store, and transfer what has been stored exactly.  Both super conductors and ANCHI Crystals utilize epitaxial properties as an active mechanism.  Because crystals grow, former IBM scientist Dr. Marcel Vogel considered them to be "living".  Dr. Vogel helped develop the liquid crystal technology used in our watches today, and was part of the group that learned how to grow crystals in laboratories.  As a scientist he became so fascinated with crystals that he devoted his retirement years exploring their life-enhancing capabilities.  He explored their ability to affect the body in positive ways and found that this was partly because of their capability of organizing and directing energy.  All crystals are organized but ANCHI Crystals have this capacity along with epitaxial properties that carry the profound ANCHI Field.  

How do I use ANCHI to energize/re-structure water?

ANCHI Crystals can be placed in or next to any natural water container (we recommend Nature's Design glassware) or your bath water to energize/re-structure it.  Because ANCHI Crystals structure the life force in all living things, they can be placed near our bodies as well as pets or plants to help them thrive.  

How do I use ANCHI Crystals for better health?

ANCHI Crystals may be safely used anywhere on the body.  Generally they are placed on the heart, third eye, or areas of pain.  They do not require focus or meditation.  They are, however, important companions to meditative practices.  ANCHI Crystals do not alter mental faculties.  They can be used any time throughout the day and are great to have while driving or traveling.  It is highly recommended to use them to synchronize your systems before sleep by placing a pouch on your heart or another desired are.  It is acceptable that they fall off the body during night and remain in the bed.  Your own insights can be the greatest source of where to place them.  

What makes ANCHI Crystals rare?

ANCHI Crystals are rare both in their age and type of formation.  ANCHI Crystals have been dated to be at least 1.6 billion years old.  This places their formation at the first stages of Earth's geological history.  These crystals are found in only one location on the Earth.  The site represents a "community" of over 50 crystals, including tourmalines, the most pyroelectric mineral, and quarts - the most piezoelectric mineral.  Because of their age, these ancient crystals are opaque rather than clear in appearance.  Young tourmaline crystals are clear in color and are usually dated to be a billion years younger than ANCHI Crystals.  ANCHI Crystals are truly Ancient Ones in the mineral family.  Dr. Al Falser of the University of New Orleans is familiar with the geographical aspects of ANCHI Crystal site.  Dr. Falser explains that only about 1% of all geological formations on Earth fall within the category of ANCHI Crystal site.  In addition, less than 1% of these locations have the complexity that the ANCHI Crystal geological formation has.  ANCHI Crystals are rare indeed!

Has ANCHI Crystals' life force or Chi been documented?

Yes, ANCHI Crystals have been studied in several ways.  Initially they were tested to document their ability to create vitality in water by Dr. Konstantin Korotkov at St. Petersburg State Technical University in Russia.  Dr. Korotkov is known internationally for his development of GDV software, which documents subtle energy of the body, and the vitality of water and minerals.  The primary use of GDV software in Russia is in hospitals.  Five types of water were tested after being exposed to these crystals and in every case the vitality was increased significantly!  The test stated that the "increased energy" was due to the crystals' apparent ability to organize the molecules in the water.  The crystals were also tested for their ability to hydrate skin in women ranging in age 20-60 years old.  Again, positive benefits were documented.  ANCHI Crystals were then added to popular skin creams.  They were given 27 minutes to raise hydration levels higher than the same cream without the crystals.  In every case, hydration levels were significantly higher.  Subsequent to these tests the Annaé Geoceutical Skin Products line was developed utilizing the crystals under the trade name of POMÈ Crystals.  The powerful benefits of the crystals are dramatically revealed with only one 30-minute Annaé Crystalline Masque.  Annaé skin care products are available through spas and online at www.annaebeauty.com.  People all over the world are discovering their skins' ability to remember its optimum state.  Tests conducted at Pennsylvania State University by physicist Dr. Clause Swanson documented the active mechanism of ANCHI Crystals was the field around them.  Dr Swanson's work was based on the positive effect of ANCHI Crystals on the Raman Spectrum of water.  Currently a team of physicists in Europe are researching the wide range of potential found in the ANCHI Field.  The information and possible application covers every aspect of our societies.  The ANCHI Field is truly a resource for transforming the 21st century.

How long do ANCHI Crystals last?

ANCHI Crystals will last a lifetime.  They have already existed for 1.6 billion years!  The original pouches will not, of course.  Some people transfer the crystals to a new pouch or container with deep personal meaning.  Others purchase replacement pouches either from the original supplier or from other sources.  

Are there any negative effects from ANCHI Crystals?

There are no known negative effects.  It is important to correlate your ANCHI Crystal pouch to your needs.  On occasion, people who have too strong a pouch for them will have the urge to remove the pouch.  If so, simply purchase a smaller one or remove a portion of the crystals from your bag.  If the pouch is placed over an area where there has been injury, mild discomfort is sometimes felt at first, as the old energetic patterns are reorganized towards health.  However, none of these conditions are harmful.  The only "caution" for every user is to know that once you have experienced ANCHI Crystals, you will not want to be without them!  As one user eloquently said, "You do not buy ANCHI Crystals, you adopt them".  Most users carry them everywhere they go.  

Is there a problem if other people touch or use my ANCHI Crystals?

Many people feel very personal about their crystals and this is understandable.  However, ANCHI Crystals quickly adapt to interact with each person and their particular situation.  If another person holds or uses your crystals, do not worry about any interference with your own connection to them.  The crystals will quickly adapt back to your specific field upon their return, and will work to balance your specific energy patterns.  The ability to immediately interact with each person and their ever changing moments is one of the reasons ANCHI Crystals are truly remarkable.  Whenever you wish to cleanse your ANCHI Crystals, simply place them in the sunlight for several hours.  

Why are the ANCHI Crystal Gift Bags not completely filled?

The ANCHI Crystal Gift Bag is meant to conform to body contours.  Many people place them over places of pain or areas that need support.  Completely filled pouches are stiff and have no flexibility.  Partial filling allows the bags to mold to the desired location such as knees, head, etc.  The pouches are sold by weight.  The exact amount of ANCHI Crystals in a generous container is simply a matter of convenience and a more pleasurable tactile experience for the user.  

After continued use, why does my ANCHI Crystal Bag seem to have fewer crystals?

In some instances, constant use causes the crystals to rub against one another in such a way that the crystals become smaller in size.  Smaller sized crystals will compact more, taking up less space than the same amount of crystals of a larger size.  The weight of the crystals is the same.  Since the effect of the crystals is based upon weight, the effect remains the same.  

Where can I go for physical restoration and still maintain my lifestyle and busy schedule?

ANCHI Crystals quickly address our energy patterns and flows, our electrical fields, and other aspects to create cohesiveness or wholeness simply by being within close proximity to them!  ANCHI Crystals do not require focus or meditation.  ANCHI Crystals soothe and smooth out the effects of stress and re-instate our naturally ordained electromagnetic fields.  When we operate in cohesiveness we have more productivity and a greater sense of well being.  

Why are ANCHI Crystals important Manifestation tools?

According to yogis and adepts of all traditions the first element in successful manifestation is synchronizing the chakras.  Synchronized chakras naturally create a connection to all that is.  This oneness is the foundation from which requests were made to heighten success when manifesting.  Many people who meditate or are interested in using the Law of Attraction use ANCHI Crystals to facilitate their practices.  

Are ANCHI Crystals gathered with integrity?

The owners of the mine have a strong sense of stewardship and integrity.  They practice nontraditional, holistic mining practices.  They keep the community of crystals, meaning the combination of every mineral found in that geographic location, complete and together as they were formed in synergy 1.6 billion years ago, and they utilize all they gather.  They allow no harsh chemical processing.  The only processing of ANCHI Crystals is size reduction.  Above all, nothing that would harm or alter the unique geo-imprint of ANCHI Crystals is allowed!
