Do you realize there are foods that feeds us, but don’t come on a plate?
Love, hugs, touch, kisses, warmth, massage, meditation, fun, freedom,
self-expression, tears, hot baths, nature, downtime, and close friends.
These all play in feeding our soul and our hunger for a bigger life.
Now think of a time when you were depressed or your self-esteem was
low. Were you starving your soul? No matter how much you ate, you
weren’t satisfied. You come home at night look in the refrigerator for
something to eat. Nothing seem to fill that emptiness, when all we really
needed is a big hug or a friend to talk to.
The more primary soul foods we receive, the less we’ll depend on
secondary food. The opposite is also true: the more we fill ourselves
with secondary food, the less we are able to receive the primary foods of
life. That is why every spiritual tradition encourages followers to fast, to
have times during the year when secondary food intake is reduced, so
you are more able to be present to Universal love and the primary soul
foods in your live.
True holistic health not just being a vegetarian, meditating or following
whatever the new diet is at the moment until a new sliced bread come
along. It is noticing the wholeness in life. What are the strengths? What
are your desires? You can eat the perfect diet and still feeling something
is missing in your life.
It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of
nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat, but all of the
other factors present in our daily lives. It’s the relationship you have
with your body. It’s the relationship you have with your shadow. It’s the
relationship you have with your relationships. It’s having a fulfilling
career, regular physical activity and a spiritual awareness that is
necessary for our essential nourishment. When these “Soul Foods” are
balanced, what you eat becomes secondary.
Lack of Primary Soul Foods can lead to emotional stress, then to
physical dis-ease. Which can then lead or contribute to illness.
Do you need support in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right
foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life. The answers you
