Is There A More Spiritual Diet?
The question of 'Diet' is an important
one for us spiritually-minded people, not just for ourselves but our
families as well.
we need to be vegetarian, vegan, eat only
holistic foods, or gluten free? No doubt your diet is probably
changing and evolving, and there is an absolute wealth of information
online about 'spiritual' food and drinks that supposedly raise you up
spiritually - so let's answer this question once and for all to end all
doubts about it.
Does Food Affect Us Spirituality?
This is an
absolutely fabulous question and you will hear different
opinions on this depending on who you listen to or what you read. In
affect, there can be many answers and many different lifestyles to
choose from. I have tried many diets myself from vegetarian (10 years)
to vegan (4 years) to eating meat but no dairy, avoiding alcohol,
eating gluten free and probably some others I've forgotten about. Is
there ONE absolute way, or are we all looking for the best individual
diet that suits us?
I can honestly say that I've never noticed a diet affect myself in a spiritual
manner (and I channel, do clairvoyant readings and spiritual writing) - yet, I do believe
that a very bad diet can slow us down physically - as does smoking
cigarettes, drinking to excess and lack of exercise. All of these most
definitely affect our
general energy levels in a big physical
ways. But you can most certainly smoke, drink and not
exercise and still be a spiritual person.
How can this be?
For starters, much that is written about spiritual food is in fact in
reference to its physical affects upon us, but food does not affect how
spiritual we behave. And there are many convincing myths out there, for
example, that eating meat makes us more aggressive or even more angry.
This is a frightful myth, based on us consuming the negative vibrations
that are stored in meat. Although meat may have stored, negative
vibrations I have never personally felt more angry or aggressive after
The years that I was vegetarian were in fact my most angry years, which
perhaps a coincidence, but I went through some major anger issues in my
twenties whilst I was vegetarian. When I began to eat meat again, I was
no longer angry in my life. This may vary for others but it was my
experience that avoiding meat did not make me calmer. By being a
learned to see through the many myths written about it. Due to low iron
levels, I now eat 'some' animals again and I find it suits me okay.
But, we are individuals and are all different. Men may find it easier to be
vegetarians than women since they don't menstruate and lose
iron each month.
Another myth is that living on vegetables and nuts affects us in terms
of our spiritual advancement. There is no doubt that it affects us
physically, but does
it make any difference to our spiritual life or beliefs? I see
statements like, "Eating eggs is a desecration of the divine feminine."
Where did this come from? Did God say this or has someone simply
supposed it seems poetic and must be true? I think it's fine if one
believes this, however my own angels do not personally care if I eat
eggs or not (yes, I asked the angels about my diet). My angels are much
more concerned over whether I am loving
to other living creatures than the food I consume. I love consuming
free range eggs and I know that God still loves me. I progress at the
same speed along His path.
Individual Diets & Plans
I cannot live without vegetables and fruits, for they give
me energy and help with digestion. Any meal I consume that contains no
fresh or green foods is difficult to digest. I feel like when I consume
rubbish, I literally feel sick. I like to snack on fruit and eat plenty
of fresh salad and vegetables. Whilst I am spiritually minded, I find
my beliefs do not change if I eat badly. So I would have to say that
no, food has never affected me spiritually, despite the realms of
information that suggest that it does. However, careless eating can lower not just
health of the physical body, but health of the etheric body (the
physical double) that we rely on.
I personally stick to a gluten free diet because wheat became a big problem
for me. I suffered digestion issues and massive bloating, which ended
when I gave up wheat. I can eat minuscule amounts but find the flavor
disagreeable. Has my spirituality changed through this diet? I have to
say no not at all. But it helped me kick the sugar habit that I'd had
my life. Eating wheat increases appetite and without it,
feeling hungry all the time. Kicking a long standing habit like sugar
makes me feel amazing as now I am able to eat very well a lot more of
Should a person cut out carbohydrates? I feel this will not make
anyone more spiritual. Another option is to cut out dairy. Sure you can
do this but it doesn't mean you are closer to God. I truly believe the best
way is to experiment and see which diet is personally beneficial to
you. I recently added diary, especially cheese, back into my diet after
two decades of avoiding it. I'm surprised to see I'm having no
difficulties. As long as I stick to my current diet, I
seem to be doing well.
In some countries and cultures, as well as financially speaking, we are
impacted by different limits on what's available or what's
affordable to consume. As I see it, we are ALL spiritual beings no matter what
those who hang out at MacDonalds each day. My conclusion has to be that
our diets do change as the years go by, but as long as we believe in
whatever we do making us kind and loving, this can never alter
with diet. Any article or book that lists certain foods
that are the best to consume for spirituality probably can't make this claim as it can't be proven anyway. It
may be very good advice to us in a physical sense, but food in and of
itself will never make us more God fearing - that comes from our heart and our Soul.
My suggestion is to let's all try to be healthy and enjoy a spiritual lifestyle with as many
fresh foods as we can, as nature intended. Don't worry too
much about articles that say you need to eat more of this or that to be
spiritual! No - just look to God for that to occur and reach out to
Him. It is true that food contains energy and we want to put the best
energy into our bodies. But if you can't afford to eat healthy all the
time, do not worry about your spiritual side. Trust me, a kind person
who eats meat three times a day will do better than a salad muncher who
is mean and back-stabs others. At least this is what I think, others of course are free to disagree.
