Since childhood, I have been taught by my Parents to respect food – whether eating, cooking, or serving. I have grown up to always believe that when you cook food, your mood and intention reflects in the taste and quality of the food – hence I always try to be in happy and pleasant mood when cooking.
Recently I was reading a book named E-Squared by Pam Grout. It suggested an experiment based on similar theory and so I thought why not test this theory which I always have thought to be true. Per the experiment, about 10 days ago, I planted 5 moong seeds each, in 2 different planters, with exact same soil, watered it equally at the exact same times regularly – no difference at all. I named one planter ‘A’ and another one ‘B’. Only difference was, I intended for the contents of planter ‘A’ to grow well, and blessed with positive vibes and love. Also wrote the word ‘Love’ at the bottom of planter ‘A’. Can you guess which one is planter ‘A’ in this picture?
If you guessed the planter on the left side, you are correct! It is incredible what thoughts can do to food, water, and everything else.
This kinda agrees with the experiment done by Dr. Masuru Emoto, as depicted in the movie ‘What the bleep do we know’. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWAuc9GIvFo
Loved doing this experiment, and thought it was worth sharing here.
Whether you are believer, religious, spiritual, or not, set good intention when you cook and/or eat the food, and say a little 10 second prayer of gratitude with all your heart: “Thank you. This food will nourish my mind, body, and soul.” (Or of those who would consume it). It invariably works, no matter what food you are cooking/eating. When you set this intention whole heartedly, the same bread that you eat everyday, would all of a sudden taste different. Try it.
