Im sure your hear of a raw food diet quite often, and have friends that are switching over and eating raw. With that comes the people who state how they were once raw, but felt either “too restricted” or “it was too much work”. These are the people who EAT raw.
Then there are the people who LIVE raw. Living raw is so much more than what you eat and put in your mouth. LIVING RAW is doing just that—- every aspect of your life is raw.
When a person switches to a raw food “diet” just for the reason of loosing weight, or for a reason similar, that is most likely all they will get from it. When you make the shift to a raw lifestyle, everything shifts in your life. This does not happen to everyone who decides to go raw, it all depends on the reason for your shift and what you decide to get from it.
When i first began to shift, i noticed a blind fold fall off my eyes. My thoughts were more in order, and i began too see things as they were. You begin to notice and receive the energy people and things give off, and when they do not mesh with your own energy your feel the need to drop it. This scares a lot of people. I know of people that have ended incredibly long relationships because when the shift happen their eyes were open to truth.
When you shift, you begin to notice nature in a different way. You don’t see it. You feel it. You will walk past a tree and feel its energy. “Tree hugging” will be a more realistic term than ever! You will make a connection to plants like you have never had, you will be able to have conversations with animals, and when you touch the earth you will feel the energy pumping out of it. The connection with your food will change, and the connection with the people around you will. There was a time period in my life where i could not leave my home in the woods for more than an hour because i felt so out of touch in the city. Now, that i am forced to live on a busy street with no trees (only until october praise God) i noticed my own energy deplete and my connection to the earth start to diminish. It saddens me greatly, but soon i will be back to the normal me.
The people who make the shift raw are the ones that will stay this way. Those who just eat raw will most likely not.
I am asked all of the time if i feel restricted. My answer is always that i am in fact liberated, and have never felt so free. You see, i am not shackled to processed food, and i have no chains holding me down from be enlightened. My body and mind are pure, they are one. I have never felt “I can’t eat this because it is cooked”, when i see cooked vegetables, i see sad, dark colored vegetables who have had the beauty cooked out of them. I see no life, and do not want to put something sad and lifeless into my body because i myself do not want to feel that way. I have no desire to eat those particular items. I see processed, store bought, cooked foods as a chain, as a cloud, that will only keep me from soaring.
While some may understand this and some may not, when you are at the height of living raw, you feel as though you are soaring on eagles wings….high…free…. and never coming down. Eagles belong soaring free, not trapped in a cage.
I am writing this article because I want those who may be considering to live this life to think about it. Think about if you want to eat raw, or live raw. There is a huge difference. If you decide to live the life, know that major changes WILL happen, and you have to be ready for them. It may be hard to let some of these things go, but let it happen, and soar high.
LIVE LIFE RAW.
