Food is essential to life. Today’s energy encourages you to reflect on your eating habits. Do you eat with mindfulness? Do you put care into how your food is prepared? Do you take the time to savor a meal or do you eat in a rush? The process of eating is just as impactful as the foods you eat for your energetic health. Make it a priority today to have gratitude for your food as you’re eating, and celebrate the joy in every bite. As you practice this, you will notice your body responding to the energy of different foods, which may alter your taste palette.
Connect with your root chakra during your meals today. The root chakra is what keeps you centered, nourished, and stable in your physical body. Eating to strengthen this chakra keeps your entire energetic system in alignment.
Find a small snack: maybe it’s something you’ve been craving or just the first thing you see in your pantry. Whatever the case, it should be small. Sit somewhere away from distractions of daily life: a park bench, a sandy beach, or a nice solid stone. Close your eyes and breathe in the scent of your food. Smell is an important part of taste, so use your nose to focus your senses on the little morsel. Nibble your food and allow the flavors to flood your awareness. Do not name them, just allow the sensations to dance through your mind-body-spirit. Send gratitude to the Earth and those who helped produce this tasty treat. When you’ve fully consumed the snack, thank the food for its wonderful mix of flavors. As you continue your day, bring that focus you had on the snack to everything in your experiential field. You may just find that everything has become more sensational.
