Treat Your Body Like a Temple: The Importance of Food
"Our subconscious mind... absorbs all of the energy of the food we eat."
Food plays such an important role in our lives. It obviously nourishes us when we are hungry. Moreover, it connects us all to each other. Food is the great equalizer! So you may be thinking, “Okay… this is a blog about spirituality. Why are we discussing food?” Well, be patient! I’m getting to it!
In the United States we see an abundance of food. We as a country are truly blessed because we have the ability to pick and choose what we want to eat and when we want to eat. However, if you are living here, you are probably aware that our government forces food to be pumped with countless amounts of chemicals. This is absolutely horrible for our health. As a society, we revolve around fast food that is cheap and healthy food is becoming more expensive. However, we as practitioners of spiritually must stray from eating fast food. We must also avoid eating food filled with chemicals and antibiotics. When we go to the grocery store we must make the conscious choice on buying organic food. Yes it is expensive but not only will you become healthier physically; your spirit will become healthier. This leads to the next point. What we put into our bodies is extremely important to our spiritual health. If you decide to fill your body with garbage, don’t expect to have an abundance of clean, healthy, and fulfilling energy.
The next thing I say might upset some of you, but it is the truth. To have a truly fulfilling and energetic filled spiritual path, you need to avoid eating meat. Yes you must become, at the very minimum, a vegetarian. When we eat meat, whether it is pork, beef, or poultry, our subconscious mind picks up on the energy that the animal had before it was slaughtered. Most of the time it is fear. When we eat meat we put our minds into a fear-based mentality. We become fearful, angry, aggressive, and hateful. When an animal dies, the energy that it has flowing through its blood dies with it. The only way that we would be able to get that energy would be eating the animal directly after we kill it eat its flesh raw. GROSS.
Conversely, when we decide to eat an organic vegetarian or vegan diet, our bodies become healthier. Our spiritual energy becomes multiplied and we are able to absorb all of the energy that the plant has. When we eat spinach, we are able to absorb all of the properties that the plant has. The fact that we do not have to kill the plant to eat it. All of the energy that it created through photosynthesis is still in its veins.
Foods that fill our souls and bodies:
So I didn’t want to just make a post about how evil eating meat is. I also want to inform you on some of the excellent foods that fulfill you.
This amazing fruit can give you triple the amount of energy that one cup of coffee can! It also takes more energy to metabolize one an apple then the amount of calories consumed by them.
Dark Leafy Greens
These vegetables include kale, arugula, spinach, bok choy, mustard greens, etc. These vegetables are filled with energy that is created from the production of chlorophyll. Yes, spinach can make you just as strong as it made Popeye!
Raw Cacao/ Dark Chocolate
Cacao is filled with nutrients and antioxidants that help cleanse your body. It also helps the function of the pineal gland and improving your intuition. Dark chocolate does the same thing!
Fact. Dwight Schrute from the office had it right. Beets are a super food! They help detox the body of heavy metals and can assist in the cleansing of the pineal gland.
Drinking lots of water keeps you hydrated. Water helps you to detox negative energy and emotions out of your body.
Super Fruits and Berries
These fruits include Goji berries, golden berries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. These fruits are a sweet treat that vibrate with high energy! They are easily accessible and they help energize your body.
Didn’t change your mind?
Even if you decide that you still want to eat meat, I cant stop you. However, I can try to persuade you to buy organic and grass-fed beef, try to avoid pork, and buy organic free-range poultry. These animals are raised with a much higher standard of living.
Bless your food!
No matter what you are eating, it is important to bless your food before you eat. Before you eat say this, “I bless and thank this food! I thank the universe for giving me the opportunity to eat.” Then after you say that put your hands above what you are going to eat. Envision a cloud of love and light developing over your head. Once that cloud gets filled imagine the energy of this cloud pouring into your head, through your arms and out of your hands. Once you feel this energy flowing from your hands, bless the food again.
To give you some proof that blessings work, watch video below. Just to give you some background. There was a study done by a Japanese scientist. What he did was extremely amazing! He separated three jars of rice and water. One jar he blessed, one he insulted and the other he ignored. The results were amazing! Just watch the video!
