While you eat, simply eat and be fully present. Resist the urge to check your cell phone or search the web. Set the intention to eat calmly. Chew each bite at least 40 times. By counting the bites, you not only improve your digestion but you become present, peaceful and focused.
Before you eat, take a moment to become aware that you are a soul and that the body is an instrument that allows you, the soul, to travel through the physical world and experience the sights, sounds and scenes of life on the planet. Eating is a way of filling the body with good, healthy fuel.
With each bite you eat, imagine that you are filling that food with pure, healing light. As you swallow, visualize that light pouring into every cell of the body… healing the body and bringing it into balance and harmony.
Set the intention to rest your mind on one simple thought as you eat. As you eat, simply hold the thought, “I am a peaceful soul.” As you savor your food, savor that thought as well.
Allow yourself to really feel it and experience it. If your mind wanders, simply come back to that one thought and see if you can hold that for the duration of your meal.
THE SOUL LOVES LOVES LOVES WHEN YOU SING LOVE INTO YOUR FOOD, IT IS MY GREATEST soul hack.
