Alchemy is not just changing base metal to gold. Spiritual teacher Jim Self, founder of Mastering Alchemy, states that “alchemy is first recognizing all that is possible, and then transforming one possibility into another.” Alchemy is accomplished by changing the frequency of thought, altering the harms of matter, and applying the elements of Love to create the desired results. ”

In a similar vein, Dr. Emoto, a Japanese minority energy field (Hado) researcher, teaches that water has a bio-resonance field and is affected by human thought and actions.

“Hado * creates words. Words are the vibrations of nature Therefore beautiful words create beautiful nature Ugly words create ugly nature.” This is the root of the universe. “ ~ Dr. Masaru Emoto, author “Hidden Messages in Water”

“Hado” refers to the intrinsic vibrational pattern at the atomic level in all matter. It is the smallest unit of energy and its basis is the energy of human consciousness. Dr Emoto's water crystal research proves that thoughts and words have the power to change water on a molecular level. He experimented with different words affixed to water jugs, then studied under a microscope as the water froze. The water jugs with positive words like “love and gratitude” created incredibly beautiful and unique crystal patterns like snowflakes. The water jugs with ugly words like “I hate you” would not organize into crystalline structures and retained incoherent and muddy.

Emoto took water samples from a polluted lake in Japan, and you can see how muddy and unstructured it was, when compared with the beautiful clear crystal taken one hour later after a priest prayed. The implications are indicative for our ability to clean up our environment.

Here in Florida, the water is so nasty even my dog ​​Suki would not drink it. So I spent years researching how to improve our tap water, and now have several systems in place to filter, oxygenate and remineralize it so we all enjoy the taste more and stay hydrated. Since becoming aware of Emoto's research, you can bet I placed stickers with words like Love and Gratitude on my water container and everyone comments how great it tastes!

Applying the Elements of Love through Chanting

However, this is not entirely a new awareness. In 1990 I lived in a meditation ashram and often did service in the kitchen. We were advised how important it was to maintain a high vibration while handling all aspects of food preparation as our thoughts and feelings would be delivered to the food. We were asked to remain silent without necessary, to eliminate gossip and negativity. A beautiful devotional chant was constantly playing that Indian sages concurred that both the melody and the mantras were particularly beneficial during food prep and eating. Even though I really disliked all facets of food prep, I was often in deep states of bliss in that kitchen.

At first blush I admit the rules appeared a bit, well, fanatic. However, I was shown the opposite effects very clearly one day when I was eating out at a restaurant with a fellow ashram resident. We were both feeling queasy towards the end of the meal, even though we ordered completely different lunches, so it did not appear to be food poisoning. The food was not digesting well and we could not quite figure it out.

As we discussed what was causing our indigestion, we began to hear shouts emanating from the kitchen, and the crash of pots and pans flinging against a wall. Next the waitress came running out crying-clearly not a happy environment! We immediately understood why we were not feeling well! It was the vibration that was going into the food from the stressed out angry chef, not the food itself.

Altering the harmonics of matter with Reiki

I have been practicing Reiki, a natural energy healing method, for 18 years. In the very first class we learned we could apply Reiki, or universal life force, to our water and food to raise the vibration. I have been applying this healing energy to my food and water for many years, especially when eating out.

For validation, for the past 5 years my partner (and Reiki student) and I would compare notes while applying Reiki to our meals. Our results always matched and some patterns began to emerge. Whenever we prepared food at home, it always held a high vibration and radiated energy back to us. It did not seem to matter if it was organic, vegan, raw or highly processed junk food. It was in our unified field and already seemed to hold a high vibration.

However, when we went out to eat it was quite varied. Sometimes it would take several minutes of Reiki toill the food and water felt vibrational higher. This food would draw energy from my hands like a thirsty desert tenant, and then finally subside and even out. Other times it would feel even and balanced; only requiring a few seconds of energy. On rare occasions the food would be such a high vibration, it would be giving energy back and flow out so strong it seemed to be healing me!

Changing frequency of thought through Intention

Then one day about a year ago, right before I ate I thought a frequent thought pattern- “This food is probably really bad for me”. I spend a lot of time researching natural healing and healthy foods and of course pesticide-free, organic, living and whole food racks high on my list of “shoulds” -though unfortunately this is not always how I eat. I realized my thoughts are too powerful to be so negative about my food and sometimes, more potent even than pesticides- my thoughts are literally poisoning me ! While I may not have control over how pure all my food is, I do have control over my thinking.

That very day we began to install a new intention: ” All my food / water nourishes me at the highest level “. While it did not shift over night, we both noticed a significant change in the vibration of all of our food. Now whenever we reiki our food, no matter where or what we eat, (yes this includes the rare but occasional fast food while traveling) it has a steady and vibrating pulsing giving-back energy!

We are all energetic creatures, living in an energetic world, and we all have the power, through our thoughts, feelings, and healing energy, to purify and uplift our food, our water, our planet, our selves! We are all Alchemists!
