There is nothing as intriguing as synchronicity. I will share several vignettes with you that have occurred in the past two weeks.
We’ve all heard about “raw foods”. As a lifelong vegetarian but reluctant pre-vegan, I have had a slight interest in the concept of raw food. I’ve seen lots of ads and promos, and casually looked at recipes.
Now the little stories. At the I Can Do It conference in Vancouver earlier this month, my husband and I took a nice evening stroll before dinner on Saturday. I had my camera with me, as usual. We passed a building that had an eye-catching logo, plus the name Chopra. As Deepak is one of the spiritual teachers I have seen a couple of times, I was curious about this building and took a picture.
The next day, I went for lunch with my sister’s friend. She was going for raw food, and I thought I would give it a try. I followed her mindlessly, enjoying the sunny day and soon found myself back in front of the Chopra building! It was a yoga studio with a small raw foods cafe inside, one of her favourite eateries. I enjoyed the vegan riceless sushi immensely.
The following Monday, we met hubby’s brother for a visit and snack. He took us to - you guessed it - a raw foods restaurant. My carnivorous hubby looked like a fish out of water but we all had vegan smoothies. Even he could enjoy that!
Later that week, I had a conversation with someone who had a friend who’d had rampant cancer throughout her body. This lady was now in remission, and credited it, at least in part, with adopting a raw diet for three months.
I can’t ignore these events. I never intended to be a raw foods proponent, but I did buy a juicer recently. I haven’t used my stove in two weeks, other than boiling water for tea. I find myself frequently turning to a handful of nuts for a snack.
Does this confirm that my reluctance and discomfort in the kitchen is actually a pre-programmed path to raw foods and healthy living? Well, that’s taking it a bit too far. I’d attribute at least part of it to laziness!
I don’t want to make it sound like I am suddenly a shining example of a raw foods, vegan or even health-conscious consumer. I have tried almond milk, soy milk, rice milk and coconut milk, but still prefer cow’s milk, skim, on my cereal. I enjoy a latte every day, once again, with cow’s milk. I am trying raw sugar and stevia as sweeteners rather than white sugar, but I still use store-bought syrups. I have incorporated dark chocolate into my diet and am acquiring a taste for it, but still indulge in milk chocolate when it presents itself. And I do like potato chips.
Yet the signs are all around me that I am on the right track. I eat completely different foods than I did even ten years ago. I see that I am slowly but naturally leaning toward more healthful foods, without feeling like I am giving anything up or compromising.
One additional piece of information: Doreen Virtue teaches that things like alcohol, sugar, caffeine and other “unhealthful” substances stand in the way of our natural communication with the angels. She often mentions that many people are now being guided to be more careful about what they put into their bodies, not just for better health, but for clearer channels to the metaphysical.
All of this makes sense to me. Do you have a similar story? Share it with me while I dig into these dark chocolate almonds!
