Diet is a very important part of human existence. I am not going to lecture you about fast food, MSG, and fluoride, however, I will give some advice to a more psychic orientated diet and what foods help stimulate parts of your body required for psychic development. The foods chosen are based on both their nutritional value and their use in various spiritual and mythological application for spiritual development. A good diet is required for having a healthy mind, body, and spirit as they are all interlinked.
First, you will have to repair and stimulate your pineal gland. This is gland is about the size of a pea and situated between the thalamus and cerebral aqueduct. The pineal gland produces melatonin derived from the serotonin hormone which regulates and harmonizes sleep patterns and circadian rhythms. The pineal gland is also responsible for the production of the chemical known as Dimethyltryptamine or DMT, which is released when we dream, meditate, pray, have a near death experience, when we are born or when we ingest certain shamanic plants. This gland is depicted in the art and writings of many religions, cults, and cultures as the third eye or eye of enlightenment. The very gate we take through ourselves to reach the higher planes of existence and open communication with greater beings or ideas. Cleaning this gland and then stimulating it is a key step in psychic development. Unfortunately, fluoride does cause calcification of the pineal gland and is used in many places around the world to clean water for household and industrial use. Finding a way to drink pure water by either buying bottles, collecting fresh water or cleaning the water by filter or machine is required. Also, many common kinds of toothpaste have fluoride in it, so try and find an alternative. I will not go into the fluoride argument here as I know there is enough information available from a variety of reliable sources on the negative effects of the chemical. Fluoride is classified in medical journals as a neurotoxin.
Many foods are good for the pineal gland and can be added to your daily diet to give you that extra little boost toward psychic empowerment.
– Raw Cacao Powder – Oregano Oil – Neem Extract – Lemon
– Apple Cider Vinegar – Fish Oil – Food with high Iodine content
– Foods with high Chlorophyll content – Most Purple Foods
Our bodies are at a natural alkalinity of 7.35 more or less. Making sure that the body is not too acidic is important. This is not simply true for a psychic diet, but for health in general. Lemon and Apple cider vinegar are both examples of foods that are acidic, but both leave alkalizing minerals in our bodies that gradually boost our alkalinity. This has many general health benefits for your overall system. Fish oil helps to move built up calcium around your body, including your pineal gland, taking it to parts of the body that require calcium. So instead of removing and flushing the calcium through normal detoxification, the calcium is recycled. Raw cacao powder is a strong antioxidant and stimulant, as a very chemically complex plant it is rich in vitamins, protein, manganese, iron, zinc etc. It is also known as a mood enhancer. Iodine rich foods will also help remove excess calcification, stimulate the pineal gland and attach itself instead to the pineal gland as it needs. Foods that are high in chlorophyll are all healthy foods for the overall system and help with decalcification. Spinach and Broccoli are both rich in iron, which improves your system conductivity when it comes to moving energy around the body. Another important tip comes from Buddhist Monks and Rosicrucian Alchemists but is less favourable for many people. This is the fact that a vegetarian or vegan diet is much better for spiritual growth since meat is difficult to digest and grounding food. Even the world health organisation has recently made some shocking statements about meat, but you can have a look on your own. Do not worry if you are a carnivore, but perhaps cut down a little on the red meat.
That is all you need to know for now about diet and the psychic. If you wish to know more about diet and mysticism I would suggest reading about Buddhist monk diets and those of the Rosicrucian Alchemists as they have many years of disciplined study concerning diet and spirituality. Remember that mind, body and spirit are interrelated and energy flows connectedly through them. The better the health of your body, the more balanced your mind and spirit will be in return.
