Fuel That Nurtures
Eating Right to Feel Better

At its simplest, food is fuel. Though our preferences regarding taste and texture can vary widely, we all rely on the foods we eat for energy. Most people are aware that it is vital we consume a diverse assortment of foods if we aspire to maintain a state of physical well-being. However, the intimate connection between diet and our mental well-being is less understood. Just as the nutritional components in food power the body, so too do they power the mind. Some foods can impair cognitive functioning and sap our energy while others heighten our intellectual prowess and make us feel vigorous. What we eat and drink can have a powerful effect on our ability to focus, mental clarity, mood, and stress levels.

Food allergies, which don’t always manifest themselves in forms we recognize, can also play a significant role in the maintenance of mental health. Thus, for most of us, even a simple change in diet can have a profoundly positive impact on our lives. Taking the time to explore whether anxiety, muddled thoughts, or inexplicable tension can be linked to a food allergy or food sensitivity can empower you to treat your symptoms naturally. The benefits of a healthier, more personalized diet are often felt immediately. Sugar, saturated fats, wheat, and dairy products are frequently allergens and can stress the body. For people that are allergic, consuming them can cause imbalances in the physical self that have a negative effect on the body’s ability to nourish the brain. Water, fiber, nuts, unprocessed seeds, raw fruits and vegetables, and vegetable proteins, on the other hand, support physical and mental functioning by providing those nutrients we do need without additional subs! tances we don’t.

A balanced, natural diet can ease mood swings, panic attacks, anxiety, and mild depression. Intellectual clarity and agility is improved when the mind receives proper nourishment. Even those individuals who are blessed with the ability to consume almost any food can benefit from a healthier and simpler diet. Since the mental and physical selves are closely bound to one another, we must feed each the foods upon which they thrive.

–noun, plural -gies.
1. an abnormal reaction of the body to a previously encountered allergen introduced by inhalation, ingestion, injection, or skin contact, often manifested by itchy eyes, runny nose, wheezing, skin rash, or diarrhea.

(Ouch! Diarrhea?!)

After a very insightful, enlightening conversation about flower essences, speaking with plants & animals, and Gaia, our Mother Goddess Earth, a thought came to my mind. If we are supposed to be living as One with the Earth, with Nature and all its inhabitants, why would anyone be allergic to any of it?

Our bodies are biologically designed to maintain perfect health at all times. However, ones feeling thoughts and beliefs are what end up manifesting sickness, or dis-ease, into the body. Also, the severity of the dis-ease [or symptoms] can be a physical manifestation attuned to the degree of strength of those thoughts and beliefs.

With that said, since plants & animals are healing, and also carry messages & meanings for us, if someone is allergic to a particular plant or animal, does this mean they have a subconscious resistance to what that particular totem represents?

For example, an allergy to cats.

Using the book, Animal-Speak, as a reference, a Cat represents Mystery, Magic and Independence. Going a little further into detail, the book says, " To cats have been attributed a wide variety of traits [...]. Curiosity, nine lives, independence, cleverness, unpredictability, and healing [...]"

Could it be that a person with an allergy to cats, may have to address & resolve blocks within these certain areas of their Life? Furthermore, is it plausible that, upon releasing said blocks, the individual would no longer be allergic?

At this point, I'm not aware of any research that has been done on this topic. However, I feel like, if I've thought of it, I'm sure someone else has, too. So, maybe there is some good information about it somewhere "out there". Either way it goes, I have a feeling, there is a lot of truth to it.

Initially, I didn't really know exactly what I wanted this blog to be about. But, I knew it had to be something great. Not just because of the title, but also because of what vibr8higher represents--raising vibration. Raising my vibration...raising your vibration...raising the vibration of all humanity....thus raising the vibration of the entire planet and the Universe.

My intention for this blog is to spread Love--in all forms, to all forms.

Love is the highest possible frequency that we can achieve as Beings. [and, no, not just as human-beings...]

When I use the term "Love", I don't mean, "Oh, I looove my boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife/cat/dog/haircut...".

It's way beyond that.

When I say "Love", I am referring to our truest nature. The substance from which we were all created. The LOVE I am referring to embodies Joy, Peace, Light, Happiness, Bliss, Graciousness...Oneness. This kind of Love is beyond just a feeling. It is a BE-ing.

...and guess what?!

We ALL have the potential and ability to become this form of Love.[!]

While I am on this here planet, it is my intention and my goal to completely embody Love. I am choosing to return to my origin and become Love itself and overflow with it...radiating it...sharing It with every One and every Thing I encounter.

This is what vibr8higher is all about. Becoming your greatest potential. Returning to your origin. Re-membering who and what you really are.

So, please, I ask you kindly and lovingly to join me in my pursuits. Walk with me, side by side, with your heart wide open. Brothers and Sisters, please help me raise the frequency of our Mother, Earth. I can't do it all by myself....and there is no one else that can do it for us. So, let's work together and make this thing happen!

Who's with me?[!]
