“Spirit Totems Sit at your Thanksgiving Table”

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 a decade 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.  Thankfulness for those who sit around our tables, gratitude for the time spent with those who are no longer present, and kindness to those whose misfortunes offer no Thanksgiving feast……this is the meaning of a celebrated Thursday in our history.harvest-blessings

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