Two weeks ago we looked at how the spiritual awakening process invariably asks us to heal and resolve the energetic of judgement, and we brought up food choices as a great example of an arena in which our judgement comes to the foreground to be addressed. Food is such an incredibly touchy topic that it deserves its own discussion. So this week I thought I would specifically address the energetics of food.
One of the first things to be understood when looking at food from an energetic perspective is that, in the scheme of things, the vibrational energetic underpinning one’s food consumption is more important than the specific kinds of foods one eats. (A premise which flies in the face of more conventional health paradigms. #Fun).
“I am eating this food because I am right about food, and other people are wrong” reflects an energetic of judgement.
“I am eating this food primarily because I am worried about other foods being detrimental to my health and well-being” reflects an underlying energetic of anxiety.
If judgement or anxiety (or any other negative emotion, such as self-loathing) are dominant underlying energies from which one consumes food, then these energies undercut the physical body’s ability to receive nutrient value from the food one eats. The physical body is first and foremost a bio-energetic system, which means that it is a physical translator and mirror of energy. Not only do these underlying energetic states limit the body’s ability to receive value from the food, but the body will often react to an individual’s underlying negative energetic states by displaying food allergies or intolerance.
