Much has been written about the health benefits of a vegetarian diet from which dead and devitalized substances have been eliminated. Ecological principles are also cited as a prime consideration for restructuring our diets to better serve the fragile ecosystems of the Earth and our own bodies.
But what about the spiritual impact of eating a diet in accordance with the laws of the Universe?
Gabriel Cousens, M.D. goes into great detail in his book, Spiritual Nutrition and the Rainbow Diet, describing the system through which he believes cosmic energy feeds and nourishes our physical bodies. This system begins with the potential energy that fills the cosmos prior to the materialization of an object. The first "stepping down" of this virtual energy is into something called a tachyon field space, which can be thought of as the virtual state trying to become a particle. This tachyon field energy is next stepped down as a particle of matter called a photon. This continues to be stepped down into what he refers to as Subtle Organizing Energy Fields (SOEFs). SOEFs create the template form of living systems, resonate with and energize the mind and body.
It is believed is that a perfectly organized SOEF can transfer by resonance from the level of purely cosmic energy to the biological level without a loss of energy. The SOEFs work in conjunction with the chakras and a series of subtle energy fields that regulate the flow of energy into the different parts of the body. Cousens says that the functioning of the SOEFs is impacted by the foods we eat: "When we eat in a healthy, harmonious way, our ability to attune and commune with the Divine is enhanced."
When we eat foods of high vibration that are raw, organic, and living, and when we live an energizing, harmonious lifestyle, the energy of the SOEFs is enhanced. When energized, the SOEFs develop a more structured, defined organization that better maintains the form and function of the human system. This optimal function can reverse entropy or aging. On the other hand, when SOEFs are depleted through eating low energy foods and living energy-depleting lifestyles, they become less organized and the body ages.
This is why the true source of abundance is the ability to receive this unlimited cosmic energy free flowing into the SOEFs and the physical body. As our mind and body become better conductors, we're able to store and transmit greater and greater amounts of higher energy. This explains how miracles occur in the presence of spiritual masters!
Raw plant foods, laughter, joy, bliss and unconditional love all exist on the same frequency. Tuning into this frequency raises the overall vibration of your energy field, causing anything that is vibrating at a lower frequency, such as fear, pain, depression and toxins to eventually percolate out to be removed from the body.
Once we clean our minds and bodies, we are able to live with the lightness that less eating and a clean body will produce and we will be able ready to get in touch with a much higher plane. As you change your diet to natural high-vibrational foods, and become free of the toxic waste, inner channels of receptivity are opened. We become dramatically less dense and better able to pick up those cosmic vibrations and forces that were beyond our perception in the past!
A whole new dimension of sensitivities awakens, especially a more profoundly intimate knowledge of our oneness identity, and we become more open to Universal Love, wisdom and guidance.
The body derives its nourishment from pranic energy, but when the body is dirty, it's hard for it to use pranic energy. When people eat cooked food and put things into their bodies that don't belong there, this toxic build up makes our third eye blind. As people start to eat cleaner, more healthful foods, our psychic abilities open and we are able to see our true nature.
As I move further along my spiritual path, the benefits of eating a raw food diet becomes more and more apparent. It makes sense to me that freeing energy that would otherwise be spent digesting heavy food gives me more energy for spiritual pursuits. It also makes sense that eating foods of high vibration raises my vibration.
Our real nourishment is Divine energy. May you be blessed!
