I have experienced first hand the awkward interaction with “food cults”. Generally it is a dead give away that you are interacting with a food cult member if they begin questioning your diet and making judgey comments because you had a piece of cheese that day. Spirituality and food are directly linked but not so closely that your diet is synonymous with your “spiritual level.” In fact if there is a indicator for how “evolved” someone is it would be how altruistic they are… In truth everyones path is different and purifying the diet may not be the first step in ones enlightenment process…and that is A OK.
That said, the first thing that needs to be stated as the foundation of this piece is that ones diet is not a barometer for how enlightened they are.
Our constitutions dictate our journey.
Each one of us hue-man beings on this great planet are unique mixes of frequencies. These frequencies are fractals of the greater universe harmonic or the god harmonic. They are fractals of a larger pattern, they are the elemental expressions of life. Our unique mix of these elements determines the lens through which we experience life. If you get good enough at recognizing these patterns you can get pretty bang on at interpreting and understanding the world around you.
These universal elements make up what we call our “constitution,” which is the specific blend of frequencies that make up our subtle and material bodies. Before we incarnated we chose to experience life through a certain constitution. We directly chose to integrate (and celebrate) specific imbalances and gifts associated with said constitution.
As this article is about diet the specific aspect of our constitutions that we should mention is the Earth types. The Earth types generally have earth signs in their astrological chart and they experience life in a very rich, grounded way. In Ayurvedic medicine we know this individual as kapha. Often times people that have chosen Earth to be dominant in their constitution end up working with food (material expression of the Earth) quite closely as they purify and raise their vibration. This is a natural process for them and they get amazing when they begin to balance their main element.
Air types are generally associated with mind energy and will feel more drawn to balance their minds. They may focus on becoming very aware of mental patterns and saturating themselves with spiritual knowledge in order to satiate their active intelligence.
Fire Types are dynamic, they are creative, they have the ability to take sparks of pure spiritual information and link it with the material world. Their point of balance can be achieving the discipline and continuity in their lives in order to reach their potential.
and Water Types are the energy of emotion. They are feelers and generally highly empathic. Individuals with a great deal of water in their chart usually start their healing with learning to balance they high levels of emotional information they feel. They begin by releasing emotions/pain that feel heavy in favor of lighter ones.
Obviously we are not just one “type” . We are a breath-takingly beautiful mix of all of them. Each aspect works in tandem with the other like a perfectly blended alchemy producing machine.
Eventually all roads meet when you are dedicated to your evolution. The cleaner you eat the more spiritually you will begin to see the world. The more spiritual practice you integrate the more you will be attracted to healthier foods. Understanding your constitution can help you recognize the deeper under currents of the world around you.
