Thinking about the foods that you typically eat in a day…do they grow in the air (like an apple); or a few feet above the ground (like cherry tomatoes); or near/under the ground (like carrots)?
Where food grows can have a significant effect on your energy.
When we eat foods which grow in the air, that energy is brought into our body. I meet a lot of people who eat mostly fruit and nuts. They have spiritual energy (air…etheric energy) but without a solid meditation/yoga/spiritual practice, they don’t know how to channel and manage that energy in way which plugs into a grounded source. Without a way to ground, these people are often described as “spacey” or “air head.”
In contrast, people who eat foods that grow under or near the ground often carry a very heavy energy. Know someone who lives for potatoes or eats lots of peanuts (or peanut butter)? These people tend to have a very heavy, grounded energy. They may have difficulty being motivated or even moving. They may also be described as reliable and practical.
As you move through today, notice which foods you choose. Notice whether the choices relate to how your energy is feeling right now, or how you would like it to feel.
Most of us choose foods which mimic how we are feeling. Just one time during the day, try eating the “opposite” of what you are reaching for and notice how it feels. For example, if you feel weighed down or tired and notice yourself reaching for a ground-laden food, try eating fruit instead and see what happens. Conversely, if you feel like you are floating and not grounded or not yourself, try eating a salad with some lettuce and radish or carrot or celery and notice what happens.
