Blessing Your Food And Drink

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comI am convinced that a cup of coffee or a sandwich always tastes better when a dear friend or loving relative has made it. Maybe it is because it was prepared with love and good intention?

I also believe that when food or drink is prepared with love, the intention behind its preparation is more beneficial to our bodies and well-being. This idea often comes to me when I’m a guest at someone’s table.

My belief is not just a personal fancy; it is based on the metaphysical notion that food is just energy, as are our bodies, minds, and spirits.

Energy is transferred through touch, and both good and bad energy can be transferred or exchanged through physical contact. Even without speaking, subtle, invisible thought forms and intentions also pass from one person to another.

It therefore makes sense that this would also happen when one person prepares food and another consumes it.

I believe this is one of the reasons why many religions and cultures have a tradition of blessing food and drink before consumption.

In Hinduism, for example, the act of offering food to a deity or expressing gratitude is often part of religious rituals or daily routines. It’s a way of acknowledging the divine and showing appreciation for the food provided. Hindus also practice annaprashana, a significant ceremony that celebrates a child’s first intake of solid food. The ceremony symbolizes the baby’s journey toward independence and self-sufficiency and marks the end of the baby’s dependence on breast milk.

In Judaism, there is the practice of birkat hamazon or “grace after meals.” A prayer is recited after a meal to express gratitude for the food and to acknowledge the source of the food. The prayer typically includes blessings and verses thanking God for the food.

In Christianity, saying grace before meals is a common practice. The content of the prayer can vary, but it typically includes thanking God for the food, asking for His blessing on the meal, and expressing gratitude for His goodness. Some families may have specific prayers or traditions they follow, while others may keep it more informal and spontaneous. Overall, the practice is a way for Christians to pause, reflect, and give thanks before eating.

There are several occult and esoteric traditions that involve blessing food and drink to alter their energetic properties. In traditional alchemy, the process is seen as a form of spiritual transmutation, where the act of blessing is believed to imbue the food or drink with positive energy or metaphysical properties.

Various mystical traditions have specific rituals or prayers for blessing food. These rituals involve invoking divine energies, expressing gratitude, or using symbols and gestures to imbue the food with specific qualities. The intention behind these practices is to elevate the spiritual or energetic nature of the food, thereby promoting well-being and harmony.

In Paganism, it is common to thank the gods, the earth, and the food itself before eating. Many pagans believe that we should thank not only the gods for our food, but also the earth and the food itself. After all, if you’re eating plants or meat, something had to die so you could have a meal.

Please bless this food we are about to share, those who prepared it, those who serve it, and those who have worked to make today the special occasion that it is. For all of this, we give you thanks ~ Izola White

Regardless of our personal belief system or spiritual orientation, blessing our food and drink is a way of acknowledging the divine source of all food and expressing gratitude for the gift of sustenance. I think this is especially important when we consume food or drink prepared by strangers. Low vibration foods also come from places where they’ve been genetically modified, not to mention animals raised in terrible conditions.

I feel that those of us who seek to live a life of higher consciousness and wish to keep our vibration raised, need to do everything in our power to protect ourselves from negative energies and eliminate any toxins from our bodies. Blessing food that comes from a negative environment or is prepared by the hands of a negative person can nullify the negative energies that can get in the way of nourishing our bodies. Blessing our food and drink also makes us more aware of what we are putting into our bodies.

Blessing our food and drink is important if we want to grow spiritually and also manifest abundance, because to attract more blessings we must be in a state of gratitude and appreciation. When we take a moment to bless our food, we are forced to slow down and appreciate the simple act of eating. We also acknowledge the source of our sustenance and are reminded of our dependence on the earth and our connection to the natural world.

You can create your own blessing, either silently or aloud. You can begin your blessing by invoking God, Source, Spirit, the Divine, or any deity or spiritual entity relevant to your personal belief system. I always feel that we should honor and give dignity to the essence of the food or drink.
