If you want to grow spiritually or enlighten, food is a wonderful place to start. The rule of thumb here is to be mindful of the life or energy ratio within all the foods you consume. The closer to its life your food is, the more elevated or ascended energy it will impart to your bodily systems.
(Please know I am not speaking about the consumption of meats, but rather plant based foods and liquids. Because of the way animals are commercially treated and slaughtered you can be reasonably assured that their meat will be tainted with not only the chemicals used in their life and death but also the energy they endured throughout their lives. That energy is transferred directly into your system. So, if you eat meat, please make sure it is organic, grass-fed and grass-finished (if it’s beef) and that the animals themselves were treated humanely and with kindness throughout their life and death. Check out ethical local farms; more and more are popping up everywhere.)
As many of you know, I grow a lot of my own food. Not all of it, but a good amount. I grow what I want to eat and nothing more, and I try to use the entire plant, if possible. If I’m harvesting a carrot I don’t simply eat the carrot but I puree the carrot tops and freeze them for smoothies to make at a later time. I eat the leaf and stem of my kale and collard plants. And when I harvest, I talk to my plants and thank them. I use only what I need, and I bless my food.
I am lucky that I can go out and pick what I need and immediately consume it. This insures that I am taking in elevated earth and life energy — energies very similar to Source energy. The more of this type of energy I consume, the more it will augment and raise my own signature. This directly aids spiritual growth, enlightenment and Ascension.
I realize that not everyone has a huge yard or can grow a large garden. Still, most of us can at least grow some of our food, even if it’s just potted herbs in a window or tomato plants on the balcony. You can grow some part of your essential spiritual foods and consume them immediately upon harvesting, like I do. This guarantees that their energy will be as clean, pure and strong as possible upon consumption. All other foods should be organic and purchased in-season and locally sourced, if at all possible. Even if you can’t buy organic, choosing raw fruits and vegetables over processed foods and meats is infinitely better. There are degrees to everything. Do the best you can, without judgment.
If you are interested in eating spiritually, you might also like to consider juicing. Take fresh, organic fruits and vegetables and juice them, removing all of the fiber. Pure juice, like pure water, is a conductive, which means it literally runs energy throughout your body. Your body also won’t have to work so hard to digest juice, allowing it to divert its energy to other necessary activities, such as healing and the raising of its energies.
If you don’t want to lose the fiber from those veggies and fruits, that’s perfectly okay. Make a smoothie instead, incorporating pure juice and plants. Throw in some chia and flax seeds and some kefir, too, if you’re so inclined. Your body will cherish and utilize the nourishment and the beautiful life energy you take in. You will heal yourself while at the same time increasing your spiritual and psychic abilities.
Holistic health is a major cornerstone of spiritual growth. When we honor our bodies as well as plants, animals and the planet itself, we are working within very sacred energies. When we remove processed foods and the things we know cause damage to our systems, we simultaneously bless our systems and allow them to advance.
The following is a small list of some particularly spiritual (and healthy!) foods and herbs/spices. Eat them liberally and enjoy!
- Coconut (flesh, milk, water, oil)
- Cruciferous vegetables (kale, collards, cabbage, etc.)
- Dark/colorful fruits (blueberry, cherry, raspberry, etc.)
