Eating like a JEDI: Nutrition for your Intuition
In Hawaiian culture, how we ARE when we are around our food directly affects the energy of the food itself. If I’m in a bad mood when I am picking avocado from my tree, then the fruit itself will be imprinted by my emotions. Put differently, how treat our produce, animals, etc directly affects the quality of the food we consume. Mana matters!
So how do we then EAT to improve our intuitive abilities, thereby realizing our JEDI bad-assed-ness (new word for the day)? Great question! As mentioned in my opening paragraph, the energy placed into the effort of growing our food will affect our own ‘vibe’. The gold standard then is locally & organically plants grown, in a conscious and mindful way with ALOHA. I know, sounds expensive.
Here’s the thing - our intuitive abilities lie within our Mind (subconscious/Super Consciousness), so the more connected we are (less stress, more harmonious, etc) the better able we are to access our talents.
When talking about stress it is important to point out the types of stress we encounter in everyday life:
Physical: joint, muscular, organ (digestive)
Personal: emotional, mental, etc
Chemical: exposure to glyphosate, heavy metals, air pollutants, etc
Environmental: electromagnetic frequencies
Specifically related to food, anything that increases the digestive systems’s need to work harder are things to reduce or avoid. This is why the closer something is grown, the greater the emotional and physical environment is, the greater the effect upon your physical and metaphysical vitality it will be.
To simplify this process, here are a list of things to reduce, mitigate, or avoid (as much as can, from where you are at) during this experience:
Meat (beef, pork, chicken, fish, shrimp...you know, meat)
Grains & legumes (rice, corn, soy, etc)
Alcohol (beer, wine, etc)
Caffeine (coffee, tea)
Sugar (it’s pretty much in everything process, so go natural!)
Dairy (cheese, milk, etc)
I know, I know - that’s pretty much EVERYTHING that you’re eating now. Again, as much as you can from where you are at. This means, drinking one less cup of coffee, switching from pasta to a salad, cutting down on cookies and eating fruit to get your sweet fix. On the plus side, there’s a great list of things TO eat which should brighten your day HERE:
Boron-foods: avocado, beets, broccoli, sweet potatoes, figs
Omega 3: chia seeds, purslane, almonds
Algae: chlorella, spirulina, wheatgrass
Spices: turmeric, cinnamon
Supplements: CDB/CBG oils, apple cider vinegar, cacao nibs, oregano oil
Please note that these are merely general guidelines. So please play with these recommendations for the course of this experience and see what DOES and DOESN’T work.
