You’ve probably heard about The Law of Attraction. Since the film ‘The Secret’, the idea of being able to manifest things into your life using the power of the mind is quite a mainstream concept.
But you may not have come across the phrase ‘The Raw of Attraction’.
That’s because I just made it up 😉
It’s an idea that I’ve been pondering for several years now: it appears to me that the more fresh/raw/simple your diet is, the greater your ability to attract good stuff into your life.
Now, I’m conscious that you, dear reader, may either be shouting ‘YES, OF COURSE, THIS MAKES PERFECT SENSE!’ at your computer right now, or you may be rolling your eyes and preparing to leave this website forever.
If you’re still here, hi there 🙂
According to Law of Attraction principles, ‘like attracts like’. So doesn’t it make sense that vibrant, healthy food would attract a vibrant world around you too?
How it actually works is a mystery to me.
But I have a few theories…
Maybe those lovely beneficial bacteria that thrive in a healthy body become more magical when fed fresh living foods.
Maybe a fresh diet free of any nasty junk food leads to a more positive emotional state of mind, meaning that we are more grateful for what we have and more likely to see the cup as ‘half-full’.
Maybe we just have more physical energy to get into action and make these things actually happen.
I don’t know. All I know is, as my diet becomes cleaner, fresher, and more minimalistic, my life just becomes more sparkly in general.
I have a theory that it might work something along the same lines of Feng Shui.
(Oh no… what was that… more eye rolling..? Bear with me)
Feng Shui principles state that if you de-clutter your living space and arrange things accordingly, then good things can flow into your life more easily.
(By the way, if you’re interested in de-cluttering – and who isn’t, at this time of year – keep an eye on my other site, www.cherrytherapies.com, as soon I will be writing about a cool practice I thought up which will get you de-cluttered in no time)
So de-cluttering takes care of your outside space.
But what about taking this principle a little further and clearing out your INSIDE space? Shouldn’t your lovely little bod get a bit of de-cluttering action too?
A simple, unprocessed, healthy diet allows the body to naturally cleanse and provides space for the digestive system to start working its magic so much more efficiently. When you bear in mind the ‘microcosm/macrocosm’ concept, who knows what other functions that digestive system serves?
New research is currently emerging about the ‘abdominal brain’ and the connection of the gut with the emotions. There must be so much more information that we just don’t know about those mysterious micro-organisms that reside inside us.
Ok, enough for now. Law of Attraction… Feng Shui…better finish this blog quick before I start talking about aliens or something…
