Ramona Remesat is a Spiritual Life Coach and Angel Therapy Practitioner®. I invited Ramona to write a guest blogger series on the energetic body versus the physical body. Hmm. Interesting. It is definitely up to us to be more mindful and protective of our energy. This is Ramona's second post in her three-part series.
As the late, great, Maya Angelou said, “When you learn, teach. When you get, give.” So in the spirit of sharing, I’d like to reveal something that was painful for me to learn, literally.
About two years ago I experienced Frozen shoulder. It severely limited my range of motion and I could not put my arm over my head, out to the side, or behind my back without intense pain. There is no concrete cause for it, nor is there a cure. Rather, it’s something that eventually disappears on its own within one to three years.
During that time, my chiropractor held a 30-day raw diet challenge. I didn’t even know what a raw diet was but I signed up anyway. Even after learning it meant eating no meat, no dairy, no eggs, no grains, no caffeine, no alcohol and no sugar for a month, I committed to it 100%! While I expected to feel better, and have more energy, what I never expected was the impact it would have on my shoulder! Within only four weeks, I saw significant improvements and the pain and discomfort disappeared!
So what does all this have to do with being more mindful and protective of our energy?
Well, not only did the raw diet impact my physical body, but I could suddenly tune into, and understand, my inner guidance more clearly. It was as if it was coming through in high definition stereo sound. This made me very curious about the relationship between the foods and beverages we consume and how they impact us beyond just our physical bodies. What I learned was that sugar, wheat, caffeine and dairy severely impact our aura, which in turn impacts our ability to “hear” our divine guidance.
Most people focus on taking good care of their physical bodies, yet don’t really think about their energetic body, or aura, which is the first line of defense against energy from people, places and situations. If you frequently feel tired and drained, or sad or mad for no reason, chances are there are some cracks in your auric field allowing you to take in some denser and more toxic energy.
In her book, Angel Detox, Doreen Virtue, describes in detail how various substances impact us from an energetic standpoint. Caffeine, for example, makes it harder to sense the energy of people and places, exhausts the chakras and can make you feel confused and irritable as a result. Wheat and gluten, dairy, sugar and soda also have varying detrimental effects on the aura causing a variety of physical and emotional side effects.
Protecting your energy is important for optimal wellness. So if you’re experiencing some of the symptoms I mentioned above, you may want to examine what types of foods and beverages you’re consuming in order to bolster your energetic shield. It just might be time to put down the latte and pick up that apple. Your mind, body and spirit will thank you.
