Food, energy absorption, happiness and success

Have you ever noticed that if you are happy and cook food the taste of the food becomes so much better? Or have you ever been angry and cooked the food suddenly tastes lacking? Why does this happen? Let’s find out!

As we know water absorbs energy fron surrounding and causes effects accordingly, food also absorbs the energy specially while cooking. Our moods fluctuates the frequency and Aura surrounding us which the food captures and reflects in taste and nature. In old Indian tales and in traditional houses of India this idea is very prominent. They don’t cook food in a bad mood and try chanting hymns of God in order to bring happiness and bliss to the food. They believe saying good things while cooking not only makes food taste better but also brings joy and enlightenment to the eaters. Many times when we are angry our mothers prepare food with more love and after eating it we completely forget about the anger. Not only while cooking but also if the food is kept near and we talk about good things the food absorb it too.

Now the question arises if food absorbs energy can our life change if we change our way of cooking and eating it? The answer is YES. Life depends on our efforts as well as the energy we get. If you work hard but always feel you are not achieving anything then try changing the way you perceive things and the way you eat and cook. Food if prepared with motivational music, happy music, devotional or meditation based music or healing music can definitely affect your life and bring you more happiness abd success.

A small challenge – I have a small challenge for all my dear readers. Try cooking food in a happy mood and with joyful or peaceful music for 21 days. And while eating try not to watch television or mobile instead hear some good music and talk about happy things. After 21 days see the beautiful change that will occur in your life and if possible do let me know about it too.
