Personally, I believe that everything we do has a karmic flow. By karmic flow, I’m talking about karma. The idea that everything you contribute to, the decisions you make and the way you act in this world will always eventually come back to you in one way or another. I also believe that a lot of us are on this earth to fulfill and resolve karma that our souls have been carrying around for a long time.
This goes into everything we do, from how we treat others, to how honest we are, even down to your karmic flow of money. Lately I have been thinking about this flow directly related to the food we consume and the companies we support with our $$.
Traditionally when most people think about karma, its thought about not doing negative things. Essentially, don’t lie cheat and steal and you’re good right? Not so much. With that thought train, why don’t we let that go into everything we do including the food we eat? With every dollar spent on food, you could potentially be contributing to environmental damage, suffering of innocent animals, horrible working conditions, support of toxic chemicals… the list goes on and on. As much as we’d like to think that small everyday choices like this don’t matter, they do. The karmic flow of making poor food choices is way deeper than just negatively affecting our health.
To flip this to a less morbid, more positive note, think abut the karmic flow when supporting companies that are doing good. Eating organic plant based food is contributing to the use of less chemicals, saving thousands of gallons of water, helping an organic farmer stay in business and nourishing your body all at the same time. The karmic flow of this is so much bigger than anyone really could imagine. I know for myself, ever since I stopped eating meat, dairy and conventional processed foods, my entire world has opened up!
Have you ever thought about your karmic flow? For the next week, try to take notice on the negative and positive moments in your life. Take notice on how you feel, how others treat you and if you have been taking care of yourself by making positive food choices. Remember a positive karmic flow is there if you want it to be!
