What an amazing year it has been! Food Revelation launched “Food Is Talking” and “Food Compatibility Testing 101” workshops were created and are going strong. The books are on the way. I am so grateful to be living and extending my passion and purpose! My passion is Food – My purpose is empowering others to empower themselves. The message is spreading like wild-fire and being embraced – “We Are What We Eat & Think”! This quote has made the rounds a lot lately, “Happiness is an Inside Job”. So is Health!
Our state of health is hugely dependent upon the quality of food we provide these bodies. We have tried to maintain them on chemicals and it has not worked. If chemicals were the answer to illness, then the people taking the most prescriptions and eating the most chemicals would be the healthiest. We now know this absolutely is not the case. Conclusion… chemicals are not compatible to the human body. The farther away we get from our natural diets, the more medicine we take the sicker we become. Collectively we’ve forgotten what food is for, which is understandable, given what we’ve been taught and accepted as truth up to now. Truth is always changing. Fact doesn’t. For example; “The earth is flat” was a truth. “The earth is round” is a fact. We cannot escape the fact our organic, natural bodies require organic, natural food. Food is more than something to be savored and enjoyed; it fuels our energy stores and maintains our health. The connection between what we eat and our health cannot be severed.
The light bulb went off in my mind this year and illuminated this new idea: What we “think” is just as important to our health as what we eat. We create with our minds what we experience in our world. We are made in the image of our Creator (call it God, Source, etc.) and so we ARE creators. This Source energy given us by our Creator creates all form and experience and is limitless, inexhaustible and constant. This constant energy only changes form as we create with our “free will”. Our creations; every invention, technology, belief system, etc. started with a thought, an idea. It is our minds, fueled by infinite Source that continue the evolution of the human experience on this planet. It is our minds that created this epidemic of chronic disease that is running rampant in our world today. It is our strong belief (a “thought” we accepted as truth), that illness is a natural state of aging or is inescapable because of genetics. This collective belief has fueled the “evolution of illness” and created one of the largest industries in the world – Healthcare or better said “Sick Care”. We have come to believe no matter what we do, we will eventually require medicine (chemicals) to maintain a gradually declining quality of life. As Mike Dooley has so famously coined, “Thoughts Become Things” and so they have. To change the reality we have created, we only need create a new one. So what will we create in 2015?
This “light bulb moment” in 2013 has not only changed my life, but many others in 2014; “NO ONE Good food is Good for every “body” all the time”. Our bodies are unique. Our DNA is unique. Every creation on this planet is unique. That must also mean that not one good supplement, one good diet, one good healing facilitator, doctor or medical protocol is right for everyone. Each body has different nutrient requirements that change constantly depending on our physical and mental state of health. Even our spiritual health has an effect on the body. The more evolved a being is spiritually, the less affected the body and mind is by the world. Our nutritional needs are also influenced by what we ate yesterday or last week; for instance, if you consumed 4 cups of spinach yesterday, chances are you will not need the nutrients provided by spinach today. Variety IS the spice of life for us humans! With that being said, there also is NO ONE “so-called” bad food that is bad for every “body” all the time. Some bodies are very compatible with “so-called” bad foods like; chocolate, caffeine, wine, meat, grains, dairy, etc. Even the severely judged sweet indulgence is appropriate from time to time. For example; when a clean, toxic free body craves something it may not normally eat, like a sugary sweet, the body could be needing something acidic to chase off a bacteria. It’s not about “Good or Bad”, it never was; it is only about “Compatibility”. Can you hear the non-judgment in that?
We have the inborn ability to know what is compatible and highly compatible to our bodies at any given time. If we can release all the clutter in the body (toxins) so we can receive clear communication; leave our judgment behind (get our minds out-of-the-way); and change belief systems that no longer serve us or our bodies; we can allow our bodies to do what they know how to do, heal themselves. Illness or wellness is not just a physical state, it is also a state of mind. No diet will bring lasting health to a body where a mind stays focused on illness. Where your focus goes, energy flows. Thinking healthy, loving thoughts about your body and the food you are providing it and striving for food compatibility are crucial keys to good health! They can work independently, but are most powerful when combined.
You might be asking now, “What makes any food, so-called “good” or “bad” incompatible to the body? Foods can become incompatible for various reasons; #1 digestive distress (the body cannot digest the food). The body has no use for a food it cannot digest or assimilate. Or #2 the body’s requirement for that nutrient profile is already met for the time being. Or #3 a true allergy or intolerance exist. Any incompatible food can eventually become a sensitivity, allergy or intolerance if over consumed (moderation and variety is key). Rarely are we born with an allergy; they develop over time as we continue to consume foods the body does not need for whatever reason. On the other hand, highly compatible foods are balancing and corrective to the body. Knowing what these foods are and eating more of them can correct conditions before they present with symptoms and escalate.
It’s OUR job to know what our unique bodies need and don’t at any given time. Only WE can create balance and health in our bodies. The lower animals do not judge their food good or bad and in the wild they eat intuitively and know what their body needs and what their natural diet is. If given a choice they will only eat a chemical free, natural diet. Of course, thanks to man they are not always given that choice. Many of our pets suffer from ailments just like us that are directly related to the over consumption of an unnatural diet. Not only are we also born with the intuition to know what to eat, humans have the ability to adapt to our environment and food supply. Lower animals constantly become extinct as their natural food supply and habitat is exhausted. The human animal on the other hand, can adapt to a variety of diets and environments and we have over the ages. Our ideal diet may change and evolve but one thing is still true, Mother Nature provides the most compatible source of food for all animals.
Another “ding ding” this year. As we evolve, which is what we are constantly doing, our nutritional needs are also changing. I believe (based on what my client’s highly compatible foods are telling me) we are collectively evolving into vegetarians and vegans, naturally. The explosive momentum the vegetarian/vegan movement has gained over the last decade is confirmation. It is becoming clear our survival on this planet will depend our collective decision to embrace more loving, respectful, “greener” way of living and eating. Not only is the innate cruelty involved in the mass production of meat “factory farming” making its way into the light, we are starting to realize raising massive amounts of animals just for food is not sustainable and mysteriously, our bodies are following suit….unconsciously. Clients are often not surprised to hear they are not highly compatible or even compatible with meat and they will exclaim, “So that’s why I can take it or leave it” or it simply does not appeal to them anymore. Sometimes the incompatibility is a symptom of too much acid in the body (all meat is acidic). Many bodies still require some nutrients only animals can provide. This becomes obvious when some clients test highly compatible for meat or any animal product. And, I’m sure the human body has many nutrient requirements that science simply is not aware of, that can only be supplied by nature in its many forms as plant or animal. Evolution is a slow process, and through it, we can be kind to all animals, including the human one by being an informed consumer and striving form cruelty free choices.
2015 is bringing with it a powerful shift in perceptions. How we perceive our food and our bodies is one of many. What we think (our unique perception), followed by the action we take, affects the collective mind. Has we improve our own state of health, we are improving the world. We are one, just like a wave is part of the ocean. Each ripple effects the ocean. As we remember how to heal our bodies, we remember how to heal the world. It is eating for compatibility (without judgment) that allows our bodies to heal naturally. The world will naturally heal as we leave judgment behind and remember who we are: We ARE one, We ARE the change – So BE IT!
