Conscious Eating: Using Food to Balance the Chakras
Food: The original medicine. Did you know that since the beginning of time, sages and healers have used foods to help prevent and treat disease? Modern times of convenience and fast food have blurred this memory for us. Food can not only be used to heal physically, but also energetically. Certain foods have specific vibrations that correspond to each of the seven major energy centers, or chakras, thereby helping to raise each chakra’s vibration and recharging it. With this knowledge, not only can you use nutrition for bodily fuel and physical health, you can also eat to support your chakras.
Chakras can often become blocked and/or imbalanced. When this happens, it hinders proper flow of energy in our bodies and can cause emotional and physical issues. Each chakra rules over a different part of your body and different areas of your life, so if a chakra is out of whack, the body parts and life areas it rules will also become imbalanced. And, if left imbalanced long enough, may manifest into physical symptoms, such as illness.
The good news is that you can balance, align, and clear your chakras to heal them before physical symptoms ever develop. That is one of the best things about energy medicine—you can address issues in your field before they manifest in your body. Making your food choices for the health of your chakras is one way to get started healing your energetic body, your physical body, and your life.
Join me as we walk through the seven major chakras and discuss how you can keep them balanced and properly nourished with food for optimal energetic health. You will learn which types of foods correspond to each chakra so that you can take a more mindful and purposeful approach to your nutrition. You will also learn which foods may cause an energetic imbalance so you can go home with a broader view of what it means to fuel your body.
