As a spiritual being on this planet, it is essential to consider the impact of our dietary choices on our spiritual growth and awakening. The question of whether eating meat affects spiritual growth has been a topic of debate for centuries, with different spiritual traditions offering varying opinions on the matter.
Based on my extensive spiritual research and practice, I firmly believe that what we consume affects our spiritual journey. The energy and vibrations present in the food we eat play a significant role in shaping our overall energetic state and consciousness.
eating meat and spirituality
The short answer is that certainly, eating meat lowers body vibration first, then in time brings down also soul vibration it’s that simple, it’s only the basic physics of Creation. It affects our spiritual awakening and soul growth fundamentally; I experienced this directly along with other advanced seekers.
The long answer is that eating meat means first killing and then eating corpses of other animals, as also humans' bodies are actually. Since you are destroying and eating creatures that are at the same body level vibration as you are (mammals) that proves to Creation that even if you meditate and even lecture others about spirituality and preach Unity, at least concerning facts you do exactly the opposite, it’s that simple. Facts are much more powerful in Creation than words like “Humans have higher consciousness than animals, and is our right to kill and eat them!”.
Does eating meat lower our vibration?
We must understand that a soul (who’s just awareness and no energy at all) needs to use an energy instrument (a body) on a planet (who’s also energy obviously) to be able to interact around with other energies (nature, other people, animals, etc). Thus, that soul is able to gather life experiences and fulfills his life plan (destiny) as best as it can.
Throughout life, the mind&body complex that a soul uses gathers the energies he/she collects from around through life experiences by using his free will. After tenths of years of usage, the body gets imprinted with these energies, and hence carries the average energy level as a result of his demeanor. If this energy vibration he collected in his body is higher than the average for humanity, then his soul awareness might also increase. If the collected energies are lower as vibration (as it generally happens on this planet) then it pulls down also the soul vibration. It’s the basic Physics of Creation, it’s a very simple automatic mechanism actually built into Creation.
As a result of this mechanism, the soul and body have different vibration (awareness) levels, but they influence each other throughout life. The body vibration's spiritual meaning is that it shows how a soul fared until then in life, how well he reacted to life challenges, and which kind of feelings he chose to use against these challenges.
What food to avoid for soul growth
If you want to eat something and didn’t become a breatharian (living just on prana with no food or water), the rule of thumb in Creation for this matter is to eat always food that is much lower in vibration than your body vibration; generally, organisms with less body organization complexity have lower vibration.
I give you below a food vibration chart that I spiritually researched and checked energetically over time by following the food energy's impact on many human bodies' energies.
For instance, a fish is much less complex than a chicken (bird), and a chicken is less complex than a cow (mammal). Animal bodies including humans have on average 3.5D vibration (D-vibration dimension, or chakra scale), where eating red meat (e.g. beef, pork, sheep, etc) have the most negative impact, while white meat (eg chicken, turkey) has a lower negative impact. Further on, eating seafood (eg fish, shells) has an even lower negative impact. So, if you can’t give up meat at least try to eat only fish and shells and the like. Speaking of the sea, beware not to eat dolphins or whales, or other sea mammals' meat, that would be disastrous.
Many religious and spirituals asked themselves over time "Does eating fish lower your vibration?” and as you see the answer is true. Just that the impact of fish eating is considerably less than eating red meat or even white meat.
Plants are even lower as vibration on the chakras scale in the 2D vibration range, where the descending order of negative impact is vegetables, fruits, and greens (e.g. salad).
Minerals are even lower as vibration in 1D vibration and they also have in their range a hierarchy, but it’s not relevant for this subject.
Since eating stones is not that easy, eating greens, fruits, and vegetables (2D) is the obvious choice that brings a minimal negative impact on your body's energy fields.

Does eating fish lower your vibration? I met many spirituals who are convinced that eating fish doesn't impact their spiritual evolution. As you could read above, eating fish has certainly a much lower impact on your body vibration than eating red meat, but it does have a higher a considerably higher impact than eating vegetables. Therefore, if you could give up eating fish it will help you on your spiritual path.
The fact is that eating meat lowers your vibration. Science could confirm just the physical downsides of eating meat, but if you compare how you feel after eating meat and how you feel after adopting a vegetarian diet, or at least a more healthy diet, one doesn't need spirituality and energy sensitivity to be persuaded about this. In general, low vibrational foods will affect not only your spiritual vibration but your health first and foremost!
A high vibrational food chart is an excellent compass to enhance your body vibration and hence progress on your spiritual path.
A high vibration diet, and high vibration foods in general, will certainly boost your body vibration and energy. However, these considerations have a big impact on medium and especially advanced practitioners. For the spirituals at the beginner level (3D to 4D soul vibration) what he/she eats doesn’t matter so much since other issues present to him/her bigger hurdles for spiritual growth…
As a fact, it’s typical for beginners in spirituality and atheists for instance to deny the influence of food on soul and body vibration. Accepting it would put them under lots of mental discomfort, and as history shows many human beings killed other human beings only not to be pushed out of their mental comfort zone.
