View Full Version : Spiritual insights/experiences while raw
11-29-2004, 08:56 PM
I thought it would be interesting to maybe discuss any spiritual insights, feelings, etc. while raw. I had so many when I was raw. I remember colors were so vibrant and seemed to almost glow, also the outline of everything was so much more distinct..... I remember seeing the colors of green leaves, the sun shining through them, and thinking...why didn't I realize before how beautiful this color was? I know why..I wasn't raw and my eyesight was alot worse! Every color seemed to scream at me with emotion....beautiful!!! Also, intense spiritual happiness with just the most simplest things....seeing the beauty in peoples eyes...!!! Any others out there have any similiar experiences???

Without a doubt! Today is 30 days raw for me and almost immediately I started seeing things and feeling things differently. I felt lighter, everything was so much clearer and calmer than usual. I feel like I'm more in tune with myself and everything around me. I've always felt connected to nature, but it's intensified since going raw. I love the way I feel and I'm savoring every moment of joy that it's bringing me.

so cool!!! I know what you mean by feeling more calm, and things being clearer!! I am glad in a way that I went back to cooked after I went raw for a year and a half, only because it really let me see the difference....physically and mentally and emotionally. Talk about opposite end of the spectrum!!! I can't wait to be all raw again...December 4th is my date for being a 100%raw. I know it will be hard, but I know I can do it....it's just hard when you have gotten use to eating cooked again....but the effect of being raw is way to strong for me to give it up. I loved the way I felt, how soft and smooth my skin was, how much more skinnier I was, and loved the deeply spiritual feeling I had most of the time!!! Also, thanks so much for sharing, karen...it's so great to have people on this board who are knowledgeable, kind, and have helped me to realize the importance of being true to oneself!!!! Thanks!

Absolutely. I absolutely feel more connected with nature when I am raw.... a couple of weeks ago i saw the first springtime redbreasted robin of the spring on my way out to the car for work.... and this happiness swelled up inside me.... almost like a spiritual gladness.... which is something that doesn't usually happen before work on a monday morning. another thing that happened was at sandy hook, a nature reserve about 1/2 hour from my house. I was driving slowly down one of the roads there with my fiance when all of a sudden I saw a red fox by the side of the road.... we stopped the car and he walked up to us, very curious, and he had these beautiful wild yellow eyes and you could tell he was in great, natural shape, the way he was meant to be <sigh> sorry I'm waxing so poetic here.... but it was so neat! :D

This a very interesting topic and it should get much more attention.
I write all my insights in my journal. Feel free to read it all.
I am 100% raw for almost 2 months and plan to stay for at least 6 months and hope to stay on it for the rest of my life. We will see.
My intention is to experience for myself all the positieve effect on all levels, emotionaly, physicaly, mentaly, spiritualy, etc...
I am realy interessted in all of it and want to be clear and healthy excample for all who wants to notice.
There is so much more to it than we know, so I think this a very interesting topic. Thanks for bringing this up.

This is a great topic to give balance to all teh physical gifts of raw OP! Thanks for starting this one. :)
I've been experiencing a greater sensitivity to intuitiveness and my third eye has been shining like a brilliant cut diamond--I would guess "D" in color--HA!
I have been feeling the need to clean out my life and those closest to me that I have realized were "poisins" in my life.

Yes, I experience also more and more clarity in my being on all levels.
I see more things and I feel more clear in my body and conciousness.
It is a great adventure and experience this raw foods. 5 months now!

I have a lot more moments I call "spontaneous grace" -- times when I'm suddenly overwhelmed by the feeling of utter joy at being alive.

I was only raw for a little less than 2 days and I felt so much lighter. My joints felt loose. At some point I ended up laying down because I had a headache. I ended up doing some deep breathing and felt almost euphoric. I felt closer to the earth. I love that feeling. It makes sense to me because living food is vibrating at a higher level than processed or dead food. I believe when our bodies are vibrating from a higher place we see, feel, think at a higher level. Maybe we tap into our other senses.

This is such a great topic! Since being raw I have recaptured my creativity. Years ago I was very into stained glass construction and made some huge windows for homes my husband built and also lots of little dangly bits etc
In the last month or two (I have been mainly raw for 6months) I envision scenes in stained glass - if you can understand - the colour of the sun shining through a particular colour of glass making it just so deep and different hues that stand out in contrast...in my imagination I am creating windows and going very deeply into the colours...my heart is literally singing with the joy of colour. I have so many ideas for windows I want to create that I cannot decide which one to start on and my desire to create changes with my emotions and moods...it is truly a wonderfull feeling.
I am not set up with a workshop etc at present ~ probably just as well LOL but we are working on a home which will give me the opportunity to put in some finishing touches (entrance doors and transom and a bathroom spa enclosed on three sides by large windows) so I am having alot of fun considering - colours and glass choices and patterns...living in Hawaii I am tending towards heliconias and gingers and plumeria etc...beautiful deep rich reds and greens and golds.....but then the ocean life is also appealing...sigh

In the last week or so, I have noticed that I am drawn to vibrant birght colors: yellow,gree,blue and red. Redecorated the place with these colors. Lately, I am slowly drawing away from pastels and don't feel attracted to them internally. Dreaming alot about animals and interacting with them in my dreams too.

I am so glad you are writing about this topic. THIS is where I need the most support to stay raw. The reason I am even guided to DO it is for spiritual reasons-not even health reasons (although of course my health could use being raw). I feel guided by spirit to be raw. I don't WANT to be 100% raw. I really don't. Spirit says I don't HAVE to, but for several years now I am being gently, yet insistenly "nudged" to go all raw. And not just any kind of raw, like eat whatever you want as long as it's raw-no way. It's like ONLY foods in their whole state, with maybe only a blender and a knife. No dehydrating, and some days with no fats at all-no oil, nuts or seeds. I'm not sure if it will be a "forever" thing, or just to get my vibration up. But Talking to anyone about this makes me feel looney cause they look at me like I'm looney. Hmm. It's not my CHOICE, it's like divine guidance. I am seeking others who also feel guided by spirit (I'm an intuitive healer for a living-so I know I'm not having psychotic delusions ;) anyhoo-just reaching out for some "human" comraderie for a spiritual topic. Blessings, All.
