Life can definitely be stressful and so it is important that we are always living a life where we can connect to our spirt guides and the universe. One way to calm the mind and make sure that your thoughts are not racing are to notice and realize what foods you are eating. The foods you eat play a role in your meditation state and when you eat poorly, your nervous system and brain will not allow you to reach the state of meditation that you need to reach.
When people say that you are what you eat, it is true in a way because culture lets us know that some food is good for us and some is bad for us. What we eat and what is going in our body can make us disconnected from the world around is and the natural world is where we get food.
We need to come to the point where we experience what is good for us and what we should eat. Why do we have this problem? There is no other thing on the Earth that is overweight, and it is because people make choices to eat foods that are not healthy for them and the foods do not let them thrive. This can cause them to be disconnected spiritually.
Connecting Food with the Source
We do not really eat real food. We eat food that is made of chemicals and it is hard to find food that is quality. We eat foods that are not healthy for us and they put us in a state of stress that keeps us trapped in our physical body and doesn’t allow us to get into deep meditation.
Our nutrition can be our ability to have deeper meditation and we have to understand how our food affects our central nervous system and our brain.
Our brain is complex and is part of our conscious mind.
The neocortex is the part of the brain where we become enlightened. This is where we are creative, and we learn things and where we want to bring meditation. This is where the pineal gland is and it allows us to connect with all living things. This is hard because life is always so full and when we add bad food to this, it makes us toxic.
The hind brain or the reptilian brain is our brain that is made up of survival. It allows us to breath and fight off intruders or to run if we need to. This is the brain that has no emotions and part of the brain where we avoid changing our behaviors.
The limbic brain is where we have emotions are where we have fears and where we fight and rely on things such as sugars and carbs. This is where we have our addictions and our emotions and where aggression comes from.
We know how the brain works now but how does this show us how to learn to meditate deeply? The only place we can figure this out is by looking to the past. Our ancestors considered food to be sacred and would only take certain foods to the temple.
Nature gives us food that is pure but as people, we fry it and eat foods that are toxic to our bodies and our minds and this food makes us have less awareness.
The neocortex needs fats to function and this can be found in seafood. The neocortex will struggle if you don’t give it the fat it needs. Each of our nerves are dependent on the fats in our diet.
This part of the brain does not work well with stress and that is where the limbic brain plays its role. That part of the brain handles emotions and survival techniques. That part of the brain is always competing for attention and wants sugar and carbs.
The neocortex and the limbic brain all have ideas of what foods it needs in order to be the healthiest. Some of the best foods are easy to find and taste good too!
- Omega 3 fats
- Pure and filtered water
- Little caffeine or other stimulants.
- Intermittent fasting
- Plant foods
- Natural foods
- Fermented and probiotic rich foods.
- Kombucha, kefir, mushrooms and kim chi
- Little pasteurized products.
- Avoid synthetic foods.
- Avoid refined sugars.
- Avoid fatty meats.
- Avoid stick meats.
- Avoid hormones and antibiotics in foods.
You do not have to be a vegetarian to eat healthily. Just pay attention to what you are putting in your body and it will help your spiritual health along with your physical health. Remember to trust your nutrition to help you to meditate and to be closer in the spirit world and the universe.
