Positive Effect of Prayers Before Meals
Do you remember the time when you were a child and your mom would ask you to say a prayer before eating your meals. Reluctantly, you would say the prayer, wondering why do you need to do this, when you just want to eat your food.
Now if you ponder for a moment and think of the difference a prayer would make on your thoughts, food and overall well-being, you will be amazed.
Every religion talks about saying a prayer before eating, Christians say grace before their meals, Hindus chant a prayer and sprinkle water around it, Muslims also start eating only after taking the name of God. In every religion, prayers are worded differently, but it connotes the same meaning.
Clyde had done a post earlier on the effect of thoughts on water molecules. The experiment showed the changes in the molecular structure of water crystals with the environment. With positive thoughts the water molecules formed beautiful designs and with negative ones, they looked all distorted.
Similarly, saying a prayer before eating evokes positive thoughts, cleanses the food of any negativity during the preparation of the food, and after all pure food makes a pure mind. Its about being conscious to your surroundings.
With the money-driven lifestyle and globalisation bug, we forget something which is an important part of our culture. Fast food outlets and fancy restaurants are virtually ruining the old practices and customs, which were more spiritually uplifting. If everyone begins to say a small prayer before meals everyday, it would lead to a change and a better life, and less diseases.
