I woke up this morning feeling heavy. Heavy in my head with the events of yesterday rolling around my mind. The conversations, the questions, the choices. I was out of EQUILIBRIUM. The details of what threw me out of balance aren’t important, we all have different triggers. What’s important are the steps I took to get myself back into a state of EQUILIBRIUM. In this state of mild stress, I opened the fridge door and glanced inside. To my delight, there sitting on the top shelf was a very green smoothie bowl looking back at me. I’d overestimated the ingredients the day before and had forgotten that I’d put one in the fridge!
I took out the bowl, walked out onto the veranda and sat in my favourite chair, one that has seen better days. Sitting there with the sun’s winter warmth touching my face, I began to eat the green smoothie bowl. What can I say! Green smoothies are not everyone’s choice, but for me, in a state of mild stress, with every spoonful, I felt the life force of the blended greens and fruits fill the cells of my body with vibrant energy, helping me shift from a state of ‘fight or flight’ to one of EQUILIBRIUM.
There’s so much in this world that’s out of our control. But one thing we can control is what we put into our body. As I always say, if you upgrade that daily choice, you upgrade your energy, and you upgrade your life.
Food is a very personal choice and there are so many emotions and judgements tied up in our food choices. But whatever your beliefs around food, it’s hard to disagree that food is a life-force energy, without which, we wouldn’t survive. By eating high vibe foods, we transfer that vibe into our bodies and experience a surge of positive energy. This is exactly what I experienced this morning. A real deep connection with the food I was eating.
