World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has been criticized for his comments about changing the molecular composition of food and water with positive thoughts on his latest Instagram Live session. Djokovic has been hosting a series called The Self Mastery Project on his Instagram Live account during the current lockdown and his most recent guest on the show was Chervin Jafarieh.
Jafarieh is the founder of a company called Cymbiotika which aims at managing lifelong learning, advanced knowledge, and optimal health. Djokovic commented, “It’s the connection that you’re talking about, the innate connection and really being present and being conscious of the moment and being conscious of the fact you’re drinking water.
“I’ve seen people and I know some people that, through that energetical transformation, through the power of prayer, through the power of gratitude, they manage to turn the most toxic food or the most polluted water, into the most healing water.
“Because water reacts and scientists have proven that, that molecules in the water react to our emotions, to what is being said. “I truly believe that we should continuously, every single day that when we sit, we sit without cameras, without phones … or even worse having nervous discussions and conflictual discussions at the table with your close ones during your meal”.
Jafarieh also agreed with the comments of the 17 time Grand Slam champion. “They saw if you had specific thoughts, specific emotions onto the water, if they were happy thoughts, if they were good thoughts, they created a molecular structure that had a geo-prism based on sacred geometry meaning there was symmetry and balance.
“On the opposite end when you give water pain, fear, frustration, anger, that water will break apart”. The show has been watched by more than 550,000 people on his Instagram account. Former player Mary Carillo, who is now one of the top tennis commentators on television, says Djokovic’s comments were disturbing and his wide reach could lead many people to believe his theories.
“We know that he believes in meditation, in prayer, in holistic healing. “He hated that he had to get his elbow cut, he tried to stave that off for a long time because he genuinely thought he could heal his own body.
“I’m very disturbed that Djokovic and that other guy are saying you can change toxic water to drinking water. “This is dangerous stuff and when I looked at it … it already had half a million hits.
I really hope he backs down from that”. Jon Wertheim, another noted tennis commentator who writes for Sports Illustrated and also appears on the Tennis Channel, also said that the Serbian tennis champion needs to be careful about expressing his views.
“He really needs to be careful, there are consequences to this. “It’s a very short jump to these conspiracy theories which now, more than ever, are really dangerous. “So I was disappointed, like you Mary, to see that because I think there’s a real responsibility that comes with being No. 1 and that includes respecting science and objective truth”.
