When, if ever did you last ask yourself that question. So many people are going by what they think is the obligatory 3 meals a day, I mean who made up that rule.
What works for one person does not work for another. As with anything in life you truly have to be your own guide and with trial and error find what works for you.
But, I am not just going to talk about Food in regards to this post, it is also going to cover basically what you are hungry for in your life.
True wellness is not just about what you eat and drink. Its about how you
Talk to Yourself
Who you interact with
What music you listen to
Who you associate yourself with
The ways in which you operate in your life
What you put into your mind
Its all just, as much as what you put into your body, through what you eat and drink
Connection and touch
With, so many people going hungry in the world, really appreciate that you have access to food. Please do not take it for granted. You are very privileged to be able to sustain yourself with this
Our food should bring us joy.
It is a time to sustain yourself and to fuel your body so that your body and mind sustain you throughout the day. This in turn gives you clarity of mind and you are better able to function in the world, being there for your family and friends and your work or business.
Nourish it always and make it sing with joy
Do not eat with distractions. Your phone watching a show
Really sit down, chew and savour every bite and morsel
Sitting down to eat is a sacred time for you to recharge and take stock of your life. Sit down and eat with your friends and family and talk to each other and No Phones.
Eat calmly and not when you are angry or have had an argument. Your body will have a really hard time absorbing the nutrients from the food if you are in a toxic state of mind and being
Give gratitude for your food and for it taking care of your body and soul. Have a connection with it
You cannot really be as connected to a tin of devitalised food as you can to a beautiful plate loaded with organic greens
Really sit down and taste your food. Don’t just wolf it down. Taste it and savour each bite
Its, a really beautiful and nurturing act that when you are preparing your food, do so with love. You are about to fill your precious body with vital nutrients.
What you cook and prepare, actually manifests itself and becomes energy. This ultimately translates itself into our food and is just as important as what you are eating and preparing and how you digest it. This is incredibly important.
What is the intention behind each ingredient.
Ultimately ask yourself How do I want to feel?
Nourishment, of mind body and soul
60% of our brains are made of fat, and is the fattest organ in our body.
What am I hungry for?
What am I ultimately reaching out for.
So, we have talked about food but at any given moment with a certain emotion that you feel. You may think that you are hungry for that morsel you put into your mouth.
But, stop and really ask yourself what it is you are actually hungry for.
It could be a multitude of things.
The truth from someone
Sit, really sit with your emotions. So many people are just charging through life and not actually sitting and feeding one of the most important organs in their body.
Feed it with
Peaceful and tranquil thoughts
Actually, sit with this and then before you stick your head into the fridge for like the 10th time that day looking for something.
What you are looking to feed and nourish your soul was there all along.
You just sitting and figuring out
What am I hungry for right now?
So, as always following our 7 Days of Principle
There’s no time to start like the present.
I personally do not eat until midday. This is something I have been doing for several months now and I feel absolutely amazing.
I eat one meal a day and a snack and no longer have dinner unless I am going out. But this is just me. After many years of Yoga, meditation and a lifetime of learning, and self-inquiry, this is the stage in my life I am in now.
I have personally done the hard work, for many many years through much pain, anguish and trauma.
Now I have come to a place of absolute peace and clarity and I definitely know
What I am hungry for
