Soups warm the spirit upon a cold winter’s night. Even in Hawaii, there are those stormy days that a good soup tastes so nice. Salads and raw foods are also important to ascension as they provide the necessary enzymes to transmute to the crystalline form as well as digest one’s food; and provide bulk to cleanse the intestine. A salad a day will make ascension easier in Earth’s opinion. Roasted or cooked vegetables are a good source of vitamins that only emerge as the food is heated.
We do not advise a “raw food” only diet for ascension. Raw foods are often hard to digest if it is the only food source offered to the body, and then one does not receive enough of the needed nutrients to foster ascension. Cooked foods are gentler upon the digestive system. Many uncooked vegetables are difficult to break down, even with ascending digestive enzymes. Therefore, eating a well-balanced diet of about 1/3 to 1/2 raw and 1/2 to 2/3 cooked foods is what Earth recommends for ascending initiates.
The body will also tell you when it is unhappy with what you are eating. Too much flatulence may be a sign of too much raw food; or the result of too many beans or tofu. As you eat quinoa, polenta, rice, potato or pasta with such symptoms, it will soothe the digestive tract enough to recover. Too many enzymes from raw food may begin to digest the stomach or small intestines; this is why one may suffer from distress following a meal or many meals of raw foods. The quinoa, polenta, rice, potato or pasta in turn will sweep through absorbing the excessive enzymes, allowing one to come to balance and recover. We hope that this information is of use unto each reading of our materials.
Salads provide enzymes, life force and bulk to one’s ascending diet.
