The Food of Consciousness

Blog-Image-11-7

What is the special food that spiritual teachers have all eaten? Beyond Spiritual Nutrition and Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine is the food of Consciousness itself. Ultimately everyone interested in spiritual life must find a food that elevates their consciousness and supports their highest understanding – that food is Consciousness. This means that we must live our lives in a manner that constantly immerses us in the food of Consciousness. We create our lives from our thoughts and words, so we should surround ourselves with thoughts and words that connect us to the meaning of life. Words that connect us […]

Passages to Transformation

Blog-Image-10-31

I’m going to share an ancient secret with you. This secret, while ancient, is very practical for life today. About 3,800 years ago, Abraham received his message from God to wake up. He was told something very specific – “Get out of town – Lekh lecha – Leave your place of birth, and go to the place I will lead you.” Abraham crossed the Euphrates. This river he had to cross was a river of consciousness. He had to cross that river of consciousness that kept him bound into a way of life that was suppressing his spiritual growth. First, […]

Why We Count on Calcium

Calcium

Calcium is one of the key minerals for health. It’s hard to say which minerals are most important as they all carry the vibrations of all life. Even so, we know Calcium is definitely one of the top 7 most important.  It is the alkalizing mineral of structure and solidity. Calcium has a powerful attraction for oxygen, as well as sulfur, silicon, and carbon. In a 150-pound man, calcium accounts for about 3 pounds, 12 ounces in the body. Calcium is responsible for solidity, as well as movement. It’s essential for walking, as well as doing physical and mental activities. Without […]

Psychology of Eating Patterns

From Dr. Cousens’ book, Conscious Eating: As we evolve in body, mind and spirit, the dietary needs of our body also change. The diet not only changes with the seasons, but with the maturation of our emotional, mental, and spiritual state. Remaining sensitive to our mind-body-spirit responses to our food is important in helping us make the appropriate adjustments in dietary intake. These shifts are guided by intuition and aided by the awareness of changes in our tastes for different textures, foods, colors, and smells. As we become healthy, we often require less food because the body is better able […]

Apply the Rainbow Diet Throughout Your Day!

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. […]

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 […]
