Healing Touch and Food in The Inner-Kitchen
The power we possess to affect our lives and the lives of others is a vast and untapped resource. This power is found in anticipating the needs of others. Being there with a gentle touch, warm smile, or while looking into someone’s eyes, we communicate at the soul level.
The Inner-Kitchen is not just a place where we create meals; it is also a place where we can heal. The prescription is the unconditional love put into every encounter we have with another. It brings compassion, hope, and deeper understanding. The result is laughter, being moved to tears, feeling loved, or any combination of these emotions. We long for that nourishment to heal unresolved issues and wounds from our past. There is always a portal of opportunity to experience this, we have to look for it and take action. We have to move past the pain, and as we find the truth, healing begins.
As we cleanse our bodies through the way we eat, these things will come naturally and without much effort. Thoughts that go into the food we serve ourselves and loved ones become part of that healing touch. Nutrition with intention reaches us on a cellular level so we can manifest change in our bodies. Through this practice, amazing results will be seen in the body, mind, and spirit. In Eastern wisdom, food and medicine are inseparable. In The Inner-Kitchen, what we eat can treat.
