What Should I Eat/Not Eat?

This is a question that I get asked all the time. It is also something that I have intensely studied for the last 20+ years. My answer these days is unconventional and has evolved as much as I have. I say it is unconventional only because people that ask me this question are looking for specific answers, which I can’t give.

 

How can I or any other “expert” know what your body specifically requires? The answer is simple – we can’t, but you can. This is where I will invite you to pause, breathe, and ask your heart what it wants. It takes practice to be able to listen, but the answer isn’t from the mind. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in judging foods as good or bad, healthy or unhealthy, but the truth is that all food is just pure energy, which is pure love.

 

When we can get in tune with this, our bodies can receive the food from the place of love – of neutrality. What foods bring you JOY If your answer is potato chips and ice cream, don’t fret – me too. These foods are not to be feared. Your body will be able to let you know when you have had enough when you are present with your food. This means sitting down while you eat and experiencing your five senses This act alone transcends that energy of good/bad, healthy/unhealthy, organic/non-organic, etc.

 

Dr. Masuru Emoto, a Japanese scientist, discovered that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water. It is fascinating. He captured pictures of crystallized water that he printed words on, like love and fear. The images represent what these emotions look like in water. We are 60% water, so set your intentions toward love and peace and appreciation when eating for optimal balance and harmony!
