We’ve seen it all before in movies or even in real life: there’s a bad breakup, insane day at work or a horrible family outing and to offset the negative feelings, we devour a pint of ice cream or find ourselves shunning our raw food choices.
No matter what the stressor is, the urge to fall out of our healthy eating routine is not uncommon. However, it’s easy for a vicious cycle to take over leading to more regular junk food cravings which then lead to great difficulty getting our bodies and minds back on track.
Ah, that’s the key word here: “mind.” At least it is for Esther Hicks, part of the Abraham-Hicks inspirational duo that sets out to empower others with good energy, life lessons and encouraging thoughts. Esther explains that the power of positive thinking is directly related to the food choices we make.
Furthermore, she says that people should toss the notion that a certain food is what created their ailment and instead, accept more responsibility that our inability to live harmoniously is what propelled us to seek out unhealthy foods in the first place. Perhaps then, if we thought better we’d choose better foods and in turn, live healthier lives.
Hicks says, “Discord in your vibration will show up as cravings of detrimental foods,” so it’s important that we “stop the ‘outside-in’ approach” of making lists of what foods we should eat and instead “get in alignment with who [we] really are and let who we really are choose [our] food.”
Interesting, um, food for thought. Or is it the other way around? Thought for food.
Many people go off in search of foods that will help them feel and think better, when it seems that going about it the other way may be best…
Feel and think better first and then we will gravitate towards the foods that are best for us.
How we think can guide what we choose to eat.
What getting in touch with our vibrations is all about
Curious about all this alignment and vibration talk? Here’s the deal: Hicks explains that getting in touch with the body’s thoughts is key to achieving harmony with the world around us.
She explains that engaging in deliberate thoughts with the intent to produce an emotion that will produce a result should be our course of thinking. This, she says, is a law of attraction that works for our careers and relationships just as much as for the foods we eat.
Think about it: when our thoughts are negative towards a desired outcome that we wish to be positive, our vibration is “out of alignment.” When thoughts manifest over time, we end up choosing circumstances that match the corresponding vibration.
A perpetual woe-is-me attitude will likely keep you in a life filled with misfortune and sadness. Same with food. Constant bad feelings that grow over time will lead us to choose green Jolly Ranchers over green lemonade.
She’s not alone in realizing the power of our thoughts as it relates to connectedness to all things, including . . . you guessed it . . . food. Ever hear of “string theory?” It’s the thought that says our entire universe and every single component of it is made up of microscopic strands of energy.
The concept has intrigued everyone from physicists to those in the healing arts since the core of the idea is that if matter is made up of vibrating strings, well . . . we are too! If the outside world can affect the way we feel and react (loud noises, pretty sunsets, angry voices, pleasant music), why can’t it work the other way around?
Why can’t our inside world of vibrations and thoughts affect the outside world and drive it accordingly? And so it goes back to Hicks’ concept that we must engage in deliberate thinking that ultimately paves the way for a positive result. In this particular case, she hones in on the power our thoughts have to lead us into making healthy food choices . . . or not.
