Taste The Joy Of Life

Divine nutrition and my relationship with nutrition, will be a major aspect for deep exploration on this 90-day healing process.

It is pretty awesome how everything we need for our sustenance, pleasure and growth has been unconditionally provided for us through nature.

It is equally amazing that there are specific foods that nourish specific organ systems, just as there are specific foods that can bring our overall system back into balance, especially when facing disease.

Divine Nutrition refers to the wholesome, holistic nourishment of our goody (body) mind and spirit. What we consume becomes a part of our goody (body) and impacts our mind, emotions and spirit.

Most people, for most of their lives consider nutrition as only relating to the consumption of food and drinks. Yet, this is only one aspect of how we give our goody (body) nutrition.

What we allow ourselves to see, hear, smell, speak, listen to, feel into and touch, are also aspects of how we bring nutrition and nourishment into our goody (body) mind and spirit.

Comfort Eating

I love food, but it was not always like that. From a very young age I was extremely sensitive to they type of meals provided, the energy that those meals were created in and the way meals were presented.

I intuitively knew the types of foods that were not aligned with me. For example, CLOVES (a spice) made me feel angry.

All types of meat including all animal-based products, just would not stay down.

Milk created nausea and digestive issues. Tomatoes created aches and pains within my body.

I did not have to eat them to know this. I only had to look at them or smell them. Unfortunately, my caregivers translated this as “Rosemary being finicky.” 

Coming from a very large family, with limited income, providing separate meals, different from the rest of my siblings was out of the question.

What made the experience even more challenging, is that I felt under-nourished and this affected my learning, my moods and my relationships.

As I got older and was able to provide for myself, my love affair with gourmet meals began. I could explore what I loved more freely and omit what was not aligned with me.

I often became drunk from food just as if I consumed alcohol. Have you ever experienced this?

I realised that I used food to comfort myself, to replace the energy, nourishment and attention I deeply needed as a child and deep into my adulthood. Comfort eating became a way of life, and this 90-day healing journey is going to enable me to go deeper into identifying and transmuting the causes of comfort eating as well as transforming the effects within my goody that comfort eating has created.

I will be using my Radical Self-care Journal to Re-tune my eating habits and the quality of meals I prepare. Another beneficial practice in renewing my health and well-being is through Intermittent Fasting. I will highlight, What Is Intermittent Fasting? and The Benefits Of Intermittent Fasting in a later post and podcast.

“Everything is Energy”

Our goody (body) needs specific types of energy to function optimally. Did you know that our bodies produces several different types of energy?

  • Chemical Energy
  • Thermal Energy
  • Mechanical Energy
  • Electrical Energy

The different ways we experience and utilise energy from an external source can be categorised as:

  • Physical Energy
  • Non-physical energy

Exploring the science of physical and non-physical energy and how the goody (body) transforms energy, is truly remarkable.

The physical energy is converted from:

  • The food and drinks we consume,
  • The sun and from
  • PRANA , the omnipresent life-force within the air

They are converted within our bodies into essential nutrients that are transported throughout our bodies for our health and well-being.

Thermal energy is created via the metabolic actions between the foods consumed and the transformative functions of our organ systems. Thermal energy is responsible for maintaining the overall body temperature.

The mechanical energy gives us the ability to move, and electrical energy sends nerve impulses to and from our brains and throughout our goody (body).

Just knowing this gives me a deeper understanding of my goody and a renewed loving respect for my Sacred Temple – My Goody.

Beyond the Physical: The Power of Non-Physical Energy

Our well-being is not only derived from physical energy, but also through the exposure of non-physical energy sources that nourishes and influence our energy vibration. For example:

  • Nature’s Frequency and vibration
  • Relationships
  • Our Sensory experiences

Nature: Spending time in nature has a calming effect, reducing stress, improving mood, and enhancing cognitive function. Immersing ourselves in nature can leave us feeling revitalised.

Relationships: Strong social connections provide a sense of belonging, purpose, and security, boosting our resilience and motivation. This translates into higher energy levels for daily activities.

Sensory Experiences: Our senses constantly bombard us with information, which the brain needs energy to process. Stimulating experiences like music, beautiful views, or delicious food can be invigorating and leave us feeling more charged.

In my next blog post I will explore how the healing vibration in nature can regenerate and restore our original sense of well-being.

A Holistic Approach to Energy – Divine Nutrition

By understanding how we use different forms of energy, we can create a well-rounded approach to staying energised, creating balance and harmony within.

This means nourishing our bodies with good food, prioritising sleep, cultivating strong social connections, spending time in nature, and engaging our senses in stimulating ways.

So, the next time you feel a dip in energy, consider these different aspects and create a personalised plan to recharge and feel your best!
