fruit and vegetable rainbow

Balance is the key to the Rainbow Diet. The application of the diet is based on the idea that all chakras, even though they have different vibratory rates and different types of awareness, are created equal. All of them must be nourished. The Rainbow Diet calls for the full spectrum of foods for the full spectrum of the chakras throughout the spectrum of the day. The morning starts with the first three chakras: red, orange, and yellow-gold. Midday is the third through the fifth chakras: yellow-gold, green, and blue in color. Evening is the fifth through the seventh chakras: blue, […]

The Dosha Breakdown

The Spiritual Nutrition live-food diet is qualitatively different from the classic Ayurvedic diet, which aims primarily at balancing the doshas to prevent or heal disease. Although classical Ayurveda does not usually recommend a 100-percent live-food diet, we can certainly employ its principles to create an optimal, individualized, Spiritual Nutrition diet for ourselves.  Tridosha Defined There are many perspectives we can use to help guide our choice of diet. The tridosha system of the science of Ayurveda is particularly useful in helping us maintain our awareness of nutrition as the interaction between the forces of food and our own dynamic forces. […]

Cycles of Global Cooling and Warming – What Is Going On!

This is an in-depth article on the cycles of climate change. The intent for this extensive essay is to provide those that are ready with a deeper, science-based analysis on the issue. What Is Going On! There is overwhelming evidence that global warming has happened. The question addressed in this article is, in 2017 (after 58 peer reviewed papers were published in the first six months of the year clearly indicating that we’re no longer in a global warming cycle) is global warming still happening or does the science now suggest that we are moving into a cycle of global […]

Oxygen-The Life of the Party

Oxygen is the life of the party. Without oxygen there would be no party. Oxygen strengthens all of our systems – metabolism, mental functioning, cell regeneration, vitality, and anti-aging. Oxygen is the element of enthusiasm and youthfulness. If there’s an excess of oxygen, we tend to get excesses of those characteristics such as being too optimistic and expansive. These people tend to be completely led by feelings and instincts because the brain is overstimulated. In oxygen deficiency, on the other hand, we have people who are nervous, stubborn, hypersensitive, and have an increased amount of bacterial and fungal infections, as […]

Why do we Need Nitrogen?

Nitrogen

Nitrogen is an interesting element as it exists in balance with oxygen. Oxygen has a radical, explosive quality while nitrogen is more restrained. If nitrogen replaced oxygen, we would die of suffocation. If nitrogen were removed from the air, we would burn up from the oxygen. So it’s part of a life-giving balance. There are about 3.8 pounds of organic nitrogen in the body. Nitrogen is the critical element in protein. When we talk about nitrogen, we are, in a sense, talking more about protein. What contains nitrogen in our body are albumins, protein compounds, alkaloid agents, and ammonia and […]

The Great Red Way

The Great Red Way

As humans we have the task of simultaneously integrating the heavens and the earth. When we don’t do this, we become imbalanced in our health, in our relationships, and in our awareness. Much of spiritual life is balance. How do we balance the heavenly with the earthly, avoiding extremes, in an integrated way that helps us, our planet, and our relationships to evolve and become sacred. It is no small task. Spiritual wisdom isn’t about great philosophies and ideas, but about how we walk on the earth. In the Native American tradition, we call it the Great Red Way. How […]

Awakening From the Dream

A liberated being has woken from the dream. In liberation we realize we are free to move in any direction, experiencing everything as multidimensional beings in multidimensional ways. An awake person is alive. We are the expression of God as life. Through the Divine Force (the kundalini or the ruach ha’kodesh), the Divine Urge is activated. It just pulls you along. The awakening of the Divine Urge, as the awakening of the kundalini, is an act of grace. It is the divine kiss that begins a love affair with God. We have built an entire way of life based on […]

Airplane (or airport!) Yoga

Airplane Yoga

This is an excerpt from Dr. Cousens’ book, Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine: In the process of working out the best overall exercise system for airplane travel I have sought the guidance and direct input of Kali Ray, a Master Yogini, who is the founder of Kali Ray TriYoga®. (See Resources Directory.) It is said that yogis of old became so accomplished in their spiritual practices that they developed special powers, including the ability to fly. However, in the West, since the technology already exists for people to fly at high speeds and with a lot less personal self-mastery than the […]
