Forever a debate rages about the food impact has on spirituality and soul growth. Some spiritual traditions managed the food impact on their followers by imposing periods of fasting as many major religions do, while others do not.
Basic energy mechanisms in our body when ingesting food
Our bodies are basically a bundle of overlayed energies, and eating is simply a transfer of energy from food to our bodies. We can fill ourselves with higher energy in many ways like through intended breathing, walking in nature, yoga, meditation, and eating high-vibration foods.
Did you notice that you aren’t as hungry when you spend a day at the beach or at a park on a sunny day? On the other hand, when doing your job in the office or in some site somewhere, or in front of a computer all day, you feel like starving.
You see, when you are at the beach, barefoot, surrounded by nature, you are absorbing prana, life force energy. You are thrilled and enthusiastic, you are “high”, you are open to everything around you, and this being nature it fills you up with higher energy. Therefore, you need less energy from food.
When you are in the office and you are working, you are giving away your energy to your work. Even if it’s a job you love you still will give up lots of your energy, even if less than if you are doing a job you don’t like. Did you notice that in winter when the sun is scarce over our heads we tend to eat more than in summer? Sun’s light literally feeds us with higher energy, and the feeling of energy input is less. Ultimately, our human bodies are the result of the marriage between Earth and the Sun, they are the parents of our bodies.
Additionally, technology tends to absorb our energy. You are being depleted in multiple ways so you and your body, conscious or not, become thirsty, hungry, and desperate to be re-filled with prana.
The hard part is the emotional and mental stuff that gets in the way and sets up unhealthy patterns and habits for us around food.
When eating when you’re stressed, bored, tired, or anxious, then you will feel a craving for sugar, sweets, and the like. Problem is that you can’t just change your diet without changing yourself. Diet represents what you think do you good, does nourish you. You collected over decades the beliefs that shape your diet, from childhood when mommy told you what’s yummy to eat and what's not, through school and friends, and ultimately in adulthood surrounded by society norms and mass media telling you what to eat and what not.
To be truly happy and healthy you need to nourish both your body and soul. As spiritual, you should look at your body as being an antenna for energies around, both sending and emitting energy of different frequencies from everybody and everything around. The antenna effect shapes your very destiny!
Foods to eat during ascension
If you want to feel light and bright, you will reach for plants that grow up towards the sun like leafy greens, sprouts, asparagus. How might a meal full of greens make us feel? Light vegetables and green juice physically help you feel lighter, eases the digestive tract, and help our energetic bodies lighten.
Vegan and raw diets have been referred to as yogi diet because it allows your body to be more aware, and more sensitive to energies, spirits, dimensions, and spirituality in general.
The gut-brain connection
On the other hand, they don’t provide enough proteins and might make you feel ungrounded on longer term.
If you are feeling lightheaded, tired, dizzy, or exhausted, root vegetables are great to enjoy. Now think about the vegetables that grow on the earth like potatoes, carrots, beets, turnips, etc. These ‘root’ vegetables share energy in the way they grow. They root us, help us ground, be steady, calm, and connected to Mother Earth.
They help us get back into our bodies and ground to Earth. We lose grounding when we are too much in our heads, daydreaming, always thinking about spirituality, soul, the divine, the future, and things we missed in the past, and never be in the Now moment. Our soul kind of expands too much beyond our body and we feel floating around, outside the body. In other words, he focuses too much on the upper chakras and too little on the inferior ones, and we get a chakra unbalance. This is a thing we want to avoid.
Root vegetables help us be present, here and now. Take a look at the food vibrational frequency chart I gave in my related post about high-vibrational foods. You will see there the hierarchy of food vibration and the types of foods that least impact our energy bodies.
Causes of food habits and impact on our body vibration
Our food habits have concrete causes that many people are unaware of, they take them as granted. For instance, the mood you are in when you cook the food also affects its vibrational levels. All of this is measurable by instruments. This is a real thing! Think about how food lovers cook with love and go that route. In other words, don’t cook angry or depressed.
Your thoughts create feelings, and your feelings create your vibrational state. Your feelings about those thoughts are based on your past and associations your subconscious mind makes about situations and circumstances. Never forget that your feelings are energy in motion.
But there is more to it. Other things that can affect your vibrational state are the foods you eat and your second brain, the gut.
Your gut is known as the second brain of the enteric nervous system. This nervous system is how the gut communicates with the brain and vice versa. According to John Hopkins Medicine, “The enteric nervous system doesn’t seem capable of thought as we know it, but it communicates back and forth with our big brain—with profound results.”
The foods we eat have their own vibrational frequency, and turns out the higher vibration foods are the healthier foods, and the healthier foods are what make our guts happy. Our body and soul chart of vibrations are influenced a lot by this connection.
Eating high-vibration foods improves your vibration in many ways. Here are just a few:
You feel better, lighter healthier when you eat higher vibrational foods, which in turns raises your vibrational frequency.
An unhealthy gut such as people who suffer from IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome) has a higher risk of depression and anxiety.
High-vibration foods offer the most nutrition from chlorophyll to antioxidants and even alkaline materials to keep our bodies in a good ph balance.
Heart, mind, and gut brains connection
Science established that besides the brain in our head also our gut (enteric system) has a brain of its own, and our heart also has its own brain.
When your gut is off balance, your digestion is off balance and you might suffer from anxiety, depression, impatience, indecisiveness, confusion, withdrawal, or disease.
When your digestion is working well you can experience confidence, joy, patience, logic, mental clarity, and a passion for life. All of those emotions are high-vibration emotions.
Give thanks to your food before eating, bless and pray over your food, and even offer loving intentions towards your food. Gratitude is one of the highest vibrational energies along with love!
Studies such as Dr. Masaru Emoto’s Water Crystal Study showed us that water's molecular structure can be altered when exposed to different intentions. Keep in mind that our bodies, our foods, and everything, are made up of water.
Emoto found that water exposed to loving emotions and intentions developed beautiful molecular structures, whereas water that was exposed to intentions of hate, disgust or evil was molecularly disfigured and ugly.
Masaru Emoto experiment with water
Emoto even did a study showing how a water crystal changed after one hour of prayer. Setting a positive intention, praying and gratitude for your food can change its vibrational and molecular state.
What Should I Eat?
Today we hear about so many different approaches to diet. How can we cut through the confusion and answer the simple question: What should I eat?
For those seeking higher spirituality and soul growth, Paramhansa Yogananda, a fully enlightened soul in the XX century, offered this valuable guidance "Material foods impress the mind with certain good or bad qualities, and people’s thoughts, actions, and health generally are determined by the foods they eat."
We need to choose as he put it, “those material foods which emit and lodge spiritual vibrations in man’s mind and brain.” Therefore, if we eat food with the right energy it will affect our consciousness favorably.
Yogananda counseled that, “One’s diet should be confined to foods which are easily converted into energy ...” This means pure, natural foods that promote good health and optimum vitality. Even fresh foods, however, have varying effects on our consciousness. We need a diet that brings us internal harmony rather than stimulation, one that keeps the nervous system calm and peaceful and fills the body with energy, vitality, and strength.
A spiritual ascension diet should observe at least what I described in the paragraph "Foods to eat during ascension" above, and moreover follow a food vibration chart guidance I spiritually and energetically researched and proposed in another post of mine.
I advise you to eat food according to the food vibration chart I researched vibrationally and confirmed to me by higher beings, including ancient high masters of the past including Yogananda.
Nonetheless, following a higher diet while you were used to a different one is not so easy, and as mentioned at the start of the post you need to change yourself first, and that means releasing your limiting beliefs that support your former diet. Nobody can go against himself for such an important issue as diet.
On the other hand, I assure you that from my own practice which also aligns with other seasoned spirituals, a spiritual can’t reach true and consistent soul growth with a “heavy” body, it’s just an illusion.
