“Grace Before Meals ~ how your Totem can affect your cravings”

What to eat is a dilemma these days, humane cage free, free range, no meat at all; these questions we face each day, as we decide for ourselves which food should grace our dinner table.

With my work as an Intuitive and Reiki Master, I have taught workshops in animal spirits and totems.  The most fascinating thing about totems is sometimes who walks beside you can play a major influence on what your body requires.  If you have a grazing animal as your spirit companion, such as a horse or deer, then your body will be drawn to cereals and grains.  If you walk beside a strong wolf, your body might crave meat as nourishment as well.  Sound ludicrous?  Well, maybe,  until you have talked to a number of people who confirm this makes sense in their lives. Friends of mine who reach for a granola bar instead of a hamburger acknowledge their totem animals would do the same.

One thing is for certain, we could all use a little more grace with our meals.  A Blessing at each meal, thankfulness to the trees who bore fruit, to the plants who gave harvest, to the life who gave up life…..that is a good thing to teach children.  My little nephew always said Grace, whether before a Ritz cracker or before a Thanksgiving meal.  He went missing several years ago; I think of him often, and how he would bow his head and thank God before each meal.  His mother taught him this; this is something we should all teach ourselves to do or do again.   I wonder if he still continues to do this, wherever he sits before a table.  I hope the table is plentiful and he is happy.

Whatever you eat, say a moment to thank God, Mother Earth, or the plant or animal who gave their energy to give you yours……..
