“Thank you for the food we eat…”
For those who are familiar with Masaru Emoto’s work, you would have seen the beautiful images he has captured of water crystals, after exposing the water to words like love and gratitude, or after prayer. Quoting from his website: “The result was that we always observed beautiful crystals after giving good words, playing good music, and showing, playing, or offering pure prayer to water. On the other hand, we observed disfigured crystals in the opposite situation.”
Given this dramatic demonstration of change in physical structure, due consideration should be given to the energy with which we cook and the practice of prayer/grace/thanks before our meals. Just as we are 60% to 70% water ourselves, our food also has a high water content. In today’s hectic world, we tend to eat in a rush, scattered and absent minded, or worse still, while watching television which may be bombarding you with more depressing news and horrors.
Isn’t all this going to impact what nourishment we receive out of it?
I am most gladdened to know people who are conscious of such impacts. The Aman Setu School at Pune is a school with a different approach than most. One of the things that they do differently, is that they have incorporated mindfulness and Emotional Freedom Techniques into their daily routine. EFT works at a deep level, harmonizing energies as well as addressing the mind. They have been using my ‘EFT for Juniors’ script on a regular basis with the children. This school year, I was delighted to receive a request from the school for an EFT script to be tapped in before meals. So I promptly sent them one and it is now being enjoyed twice a day at the school.
If you would like to learn more about EFT, please see my book: Emotional Freedom Techniques, or download the free EFT Basic Recipe to give this script a try. While it is not advisable to practice any energy healing technique immediately after food, tapping this in just before your meal is very likely to change your experience for the better 🙂
Karate Chop left As I sit down to eat
Karate Chop right I am thankful for all those who made this treat
Eyebrow The sun that poured in all its strength
Side of the Eye The water that helped it grow
Under the Eye The earth that nurtured and cared
Under the Nose & Chin And the fire that cooked it slow
Collarbone So many have worked from dawn to dusk
Under the Arm Birds and butterflies, cows and earthworms, too!
Wrists The farmer, the shopkeepers, the driver, the talented cooks
Back of hands All their efforts have brought me this healthy meal
Top of head And I now gratefully enjoy this tasty feast
