Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:
Eating Is an Energy Exchange
“When you prepare and eat food, you are harnessing the energy in the vegetables, grains, or meat to interact with your energy, thereby creating more energy. Naturally you want to always eat the best quality food you can. But some people ask me what to do when they’re traveling and just have to eat junk food at times. Because food exists in consciousness it has the energy of consciousness. When you eat you bring energy into your body. If you are in a situation where junk food is your only choice, remember that your positive attitude helps you get the best energy you can out of the food until a better selection is available.
It is your attitude toward what you eat – no matter whether it’s vegetables or hot dogs – is the most important thing. Of course, vegetables and hot dogs have different nutritional value. Choose the purest, highest quality food you can in the circumstances.
The energy in foods is not all the same. Apples grown in an orchard where the farmer lovingly attended the trees, bestowed the best of plant foods and soil, and eliminated poisons from the environment and ground, will not have the same energy as apples grown in an environment of greed, commercialism, and neglect. The consciousness involved in the creation of the apples is different in each case.”
