Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov on how to eat- the yoga of nutrition

Communicating with nature as we eat

Through nutrition we come into contact with nature, and this contact can be made in different ways. For example, you take an apple, peel it, cut it into pieces and eat it: this gives you a particular sensation. If you bite straight into the apple, you have a different sensation. Now, go into an orchard, pull the branch of an apple tree towards you, and start biting into an apple without picking it: what a difference! You can feel how alive the fruit is, and you experience a sense of plenitude and joy, which the tree itself is communicating to you, because it is linked to the earth and to the sky and draws forces from both. While you are eating, you are in direct contact with a current of pure energies. Through its fruit, the tree has put you directly in contact with the universe.

Eating with love

When you hold a piece of fruit for a moment, it receives the heat of your hand and becomes warmer. So why would your love not influence it as well? When you hold a piece of fruit lovingly, not only does its temperature rise slightly, but it also takes the warmth of your heart into its aura. In this way you adjust the piece of fruit to your internal inner temperature and then it becomes well disposed towards you. So remember, before eating a piece of fruit, hold it for a moment in your hand, and ask it to open up to you. This will transform its etheric matter and it will bring you much more than just physical energy. It will allow you to participate in its life and in the life of everything in nature that took part in its formation and gave it colour, perfume and flavour. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov  Daily Meditations

A meal is a magic ceremony

“A meal is a magic ceremony, thanks to which the food entering your body is transformed not only into health and strength but also into love and light. So you must pay attention to your inner state when you sit down to eat. Haven’t you noticed that when you eat in a state of anger or rebellion it takes you hours to regain your peace. Why? Because through your thoughts and feelings you had a negative influence on the food, which then sustains your negative feelings. Everything in life is sacred; everything has a meaning. Nature’s intelligence prepared food in order to sustain life in us. If you introduce toxic vibrations into the food which has been prepared by the intelligences of nature to maintain your life force, you will pay for this negligence and lack of respect in one way or another. Your inner state present while eating is recorded somewhere in your body, and this state determines your physical and spiritual health.” Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov     The Yoga of Nutrition More on …

Meditative mealtimes-deciphering the messages in food

Food is a love-letter sent to us by our creator and we must learn to read it. To my mind it is the most eloquent, the most potent of love –letters for it says, “I love you and I am giving you life and strength’. More often than not, human beings swallow their food without reading the words of the letter, in which the Lord also says, “My child, I want you to be perfect. I want you to be like this fruit, to have a delicious flavour. For the moment you are sour, bitter and tough, you are not fit to be eaten. You still have a lot to learn. Look at this fruit: if it has reached maturity it is because it has been exposed to the sun’s rays. You must do the same: expose yourself to the rays of the spiritual sun and the sun will work to transform all the bitter, indigestible elements and  give you bright, beautiful colours into the bargain.’ This is the message the Lord sends us through …
