What Is A Spiritual Diet

Spiritual nourishment is what we feed our thoughts and hearts. It's what our minds consider or digest during the day. Your digestive system transforms the carrots or cheese you consume into YOU, and the things you introduce into your mind offer it ideas to digest throughout the day.

What does it mean to be spiritually fed?

I've found that the majority of folks who say “I'm not getting fed” are people who have been regular attendees for a long time. I understand that some churches do not preach sound biblical theology, but after hearing this so many times, I believe it is more of a heart issue than anything else. Consider what would happen if you sat down to dinner intending to eat but had done no preparation (not prepared the food, set the table with the necessary utensils) or if the table was set with the proper utensils and the food was cooked but you did not cut the meat or chew any of the other food. In any case, you'd walk away from the meal feeling hungry. The same principle applies to spiritual nourishment at church. Have we prepared ourselves to be fed before we enter into church? Have we prayed and asked God to prepare our hearts and minds to receive His Word and teachings? Have we brought the utensils (Bible) or have we left them lying on the car floor or in the closet? Consider bringing a note card and a pen to jot down ideas or questions for further research. If you leave hungry, it's almost certainly due to a lack of planning and/or effort on your part.

What foods are good for the soul?

As a cardiologist, I am frequently asked what meals are good for the heart and which are bad. Whole foods vs. processed foods, organic vs. conventional, genetically modified foods, superfoods, important nutrients, and potent antioxidants have all been discussed extensively. The meals we eat to nourish and sustain our bodies receive a lot of attention, but the thoughts we think to nourish and invigorate our mind, spirit, and soul are just as vital. Fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, seeds, and nuts are all better choices than hamburgers, fried foods, and doughnuts for the body, and there are also better choices for the soul. It makes no difference how physically fit our bodies are if our souls lack tranquillity, peace, and harmony. Let's look at some of the good and bad foods for the soul.

How do I get spiritual nourishment?

Most people associate nourishment with a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, proteins, and water. But, while good nutrition is important for physical development, is it enough to satisfy your appetite for life?

The concept of primary food is one of the most insightful things I've learnt in my training as a holistic health coach. It claims that true health entails more than just physical well-being, and that the food we eat is frequently secondary to the experiences and thrills in our life. This energy satisfies us on multiple levels, including physical, cerebral, emotional, and spiritual. If one of these areas is out of whack, it may limit your ability to achieve a state of overall health and happiness.

Examining your relationships, physical activity, profession, and spirituality can help you figure out where and why you're unhappy. Finding out what you need to do to recover equilibrium, moreover, can provide the incentive you need to make adjustments. This will not only feed the parts of you that are yearning for attention, but it will also help you create the personal environment you need to succeed in all areas of life. Here are five methods to nourish your soul:

What are the highest vibrational foods?

Your energetic vibration will be severely diminished if you eat nutrient-poor, imbalanced, processed food.

You'll be exhausted, possibly unhappy, and disheartened. Even if they don't realize it, the individuals you interact with will sense your low energetic frequency. You will struggle to attract the things you want in your life, and a dense density will form around you over time.

It's like a supercharge for your energetic frequency if you chose nutrient-dense, balanced, fresh, attractive, colorful, lively foods.

People around you notice your radiance because you feel alive, aware, and in sync with the cosmos. You'll notice that you can quickly and readily attract the things you want, and the density will dissipate.

1. Leafy Green Vegetables

These guys are brimming with high frequency energy – you're actually consuming the sun's energy. Lettuces, kale, arugula, collard greens, chard, and so on. Get as much as you can, in as many different variations as possible.

2. Berries in Season

Fresh fruits in general are wonderful and will raise your vibration, but berries are at the top of my list for several reasons. They're low in sugar, which is wonderful for folks who struggle with blood sugar imbalances, which is practically everyone. They're also abundant in antioxidants, which aid in immune system support and inflammation reduction.

3. Brussel sprouts

Almost any seed, bean, or grain can be sprouted. It's simple to accomplish and can even be done on your kitchen counter! Sprouts are abundant in protein (up to 35% of a sprout is protein) and enzymes, which assist your body in doing all of the incredible things it does.

Sprouting also improves the health of beans, seeds, and grains by neutralizing the phytic acid in these foods. Phytic acid is a substance that binds to nutrients and prevents your body from absorbing them.

4. Herbs from the garden

Fresh herbs not only enhance the flavor of our food and increase our happiness and energetic vibration while we eat, but many of them also have tremendous therapeutic capabilities. Cilantro, for example, is a powerful detoxifier, and rosemary is high in antioxidants. Experiment with different types and incorporate them into your meals whenever possible.

5. Herbs and spices

Spices have been used as a delightful way to boost the energetic vibration of food for thousands of years. Turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, garlic, and cayenne pepper all have tremendous medicinal effects that aid digestion, blood sugar control, and even arthritis!

Beans and legumes are number six on the list.

Because they're nutritious powerhouses, beans and legumes have a high vibration. They're packed with protein, carbs, and fiber, as well as B vitamins and iron.

Nuts and Seeds

Raw, unsalted nuts and seeds also enter the list of high vibration foods because they include good fats like omega 3s that your body (and especially your brain) requires to function properly. Raw nuts and seeds are a terrific, healthy mid-day snack that I frequently offer to my customers.

8. Algae (blue-green)

Yes, I'm recommending that you eat algae. Don't be scared. Spirulina and chlorella, for example, are among the most nutrient-dense foods on the world, making them exceptionally high vibration meals. You may buy them dried at your health food store and add them to smoothies, or you can buy them in tablet form and take them as instructed on the label if you can't stand the flavor.

Fermented foods (nine)

Every day, we learn more and more about how important gut health is to our overall health. Your gut (digestive system) is home to a thriving bacterial environment. Some are “good” and assist your body stay healthy, while others are “bad” and can lead to a variety of health problems, including allergies, eczema, joint pain, fibromyalgia, depression, and even cancer, if allowed to overgrow. Sauerkraut, kimchi, and kombucha are naturally fermented foods that are high in the “good” bacteria you want and can help to balance out that fragile ecosystem.

ten. teas

Tea is one of my favorite foods, and I believe it has a high vibration because of its many natural healing and health-promoting characteristics. Green and white teas are high in anti-oxidants, which can help your immune system and reduce inflammation. Herbal teas such as chamomile, valerian, and passionflower are relaxing and can aid in better sleep.

Because that's what people told me they wanted – quick meal plans and healthy recipes – I used to spend hours working on meal plans for clients and sharing recipes on my blog. But, after working with clients all over the world and seeing them struggle despite having pages of healthy meal plans and recipes, I came to a realization:

The difficult part is dealing with the emotional and mental baggage that gets in the way and establishes unhealthy eating patterns and habits.

It's when you eat because you're stressed, bored, sleepy, anxious, or just want sweets or salt.

You can't simply change your diet without also changing yourself. You must nourish both your body and your soul to be truly happy and healthy.

What are the five fruits of the Spirit?

“Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control are the fruits of the Spirit…”

Unbelievers are distinguished from Christians because they have been given the Holy Spirit, which enables them to bring fruit. In other words, their works reflect the sanctification process that is taking place in their hearts. What are these fruits, how are they defined in the Bible, and how do they manifest themselves in our Christian lives? This is the first of a series of posts concentrating on the fruit of the Spirit, with love, joy, and peace as the focus.


Love is defined in the Bible in a totally different way than it is defined in our world and culture today. While many people associate love with romance or a nice emotion, the Bible's meaning is much more active, depending on what we do rather than what we feel. Following Jesus' example and humbling ourselves as servants, love is self-sacrifice, putting others' needs before of our own. As stated in the well-known passage:

“Love is patient and compassionate. It is not envious, pretentious, bloated, or harsh; it does not pursue its own interests; it is not irritable; it does not stew over damage; it does not exult in wrongdoing, but rejoices in truth. It bears everything, believes everything, hopes everything, and endures everything.” 13:4–7 – 1 Corinthians 13:4–7 – 1 Corinthians 13:4–7

However, we are unable to love properly without of God. We can only put our sins and selfishness aside via the power of the Holy Spirit. We are able to show mercy to others because God has shown us mercy; we are able to exhibit love to others because God has shown us love:

“We love because he loved us first. Anyone who claims to love God but hates his brother is lying, for whoever does not love a brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. He gave us this commandment: “Whoever loves God must also love his brother.” 4:19-21 – 1 John 4:19-21 – 1 John 4:19-21 – 1


Joy is more than a fleeting feeling; it is a long-term state of enjoyment based on more than just an emotional reaction to our circumstances: it is a conscious choice of attitude. We rejoice as followers of Christ because we have redemption in him.

When the trials of this world come our way, we can take refuge in the solace that only God can provide, and find joy regardless of our circumstances.


This world is riven with strife and division, and sin and wickedness have exacerbated the problem. As Christians, we are not immune to the effects of sin on the world, but we can express our concerns to God via prayer.

“Have no anxiety, but make your requests known to God in all you do through prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving. Then, in Christ Jesus, the peace of God that transcends all understanding will protect your hearts and minds.” Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)

We can also take comfort in the truth that Christ has defeated sin and death. We have peace in Him because we know He is in charge, and no matter what trials we encounter in this life, we shall be promised ultimate eternal peace in Him.

“I've told you this in order for you to feel at ease with me. You will face difficulties in the world, but have courage; I have conquered the world.” – Matthew 16:33

The second episode of our Fruit of the Spirit series, which focuses on patience, kindness, and giving, is now available.

How do you feed your soul with the word of God?

“Pay attention to Me and consume what is good” (Isaiah 55:2 NKJV). It's like bringing a chair up to a banquet table when we give God our undivided attention and spend time in His Word. The food on God's “table” is ready and waiting for us since He is the Master Chef.

What does the Bible say about food for the soul?

If you're a parent, you've probably experienced the frustration of a child who refuses to eat her dinner. While you eat a perfectly nice and enjoyable dinner, or at least one in which you've put some time, she merely stares at it, moans about it, and opposes it with every fiber of her being.

Perhaps you know a youngster who refuses to drink from a sippy cup while transitioning out of the bottle stage. The staring, crying, pinched lips, and twisting head have all returned. A youngster can be led to the cup, but he cannot be forced to drink.

Why are these events so aggravating in a parent's life? Beyond our own sinful natures of taking offense when we shouldn't, I believe we struggle in these moments because we know that the plate of food and the cup of milk are essential for our children's development. We languish, degrade, and die if we don't get enough nutrition.

Patience is typically counseled to such parents: a youngster will not starve himself to death. The growling of an empty stomach will eventually triumph over a stubborn child's will. They will eat and drink; it will only take some time.

So, while we wouldn't expect a youngster to starve himself to death physically, it appears that we may psychologically starve ourselves to death.

According to Hebrews 5:11-14, “We have a lot to say about it, and it's difficult to explain since you've become too sluggish to comprehend it. You need someone to teach you the fundamental ideas of God's revelation again, even though you should be instructors by now. Milk is what you require, not solid food. Because he is an infant, everyone who lives on milk is unfamiliar with the message of righteousness. Solid food, on the other hand, is for the mature—for people who have educated their senses to discriminate between good and evil.”

The message, which is God's revelation—Word—is God's food for our souls. We require milk as we begin our journey of faith. As we get older, we move on to solid foods. However, if we do not consume the food, we will not be nourished, and we would languish, decay, and eventually die.

How hard it is to ignore an empty soul asking for even a smidgeon of God's Word. Rather than protesting, “Taste and see how good the Lord is” (Psalm 34:8). His Word is true “sweeter than honey from a honeycomb” (Psalm 19:10). It instructs, instructs, instructs, instructs, instructs, instructs, instructs, instructs, instructs, instructs, instructs, instructs, instructs So here's the deal: we won't grow until we feed on God's Word. “Man cannot survive solely on food, but must rely on every word that comes from God's mouth” (Matthew 4:4). If you believe that, then take a bite with your mouth open.

What is traditional soul food?

Dinner dishes that are typical of soul food include:

  • black-eyed peas, black-eyed peas, black-eyed peas yams candied, macaroni and cheese, and greens stewed (cabbage, collard greens, kale, mustard greens, turnip greens)
