Our thoughts and intentions manifest into reality. They have the power to change our lives.

Even the food prepared with love and positive thoughts would taste better.

Ever wondered why home-made food always tastes better than restaurant food or canned food?

The act of saying few words of gratitude before eating your meals has a positive effect.

Every culture talks about saying positive words before eating – Christians say grace before their meals, Hindus chant a prayer and sprinkle water around it, Muslims also start eating only after chanting the name of the Divine.

An experiment carried out by scientists at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, examined the roles of intention and belief on mood while drinking tea.

It explored whether drinking tea “treated” with good intentions would have an effect on mood more so than drinking ordinary tea.

They concluded that tea treated with good intentions improved mood more than ordinary tea derived from the same source.

The study stated, “This also suggests that the esthetic and intentional qualities associated with the traditional tea ceremony may have subtle influences that extend beyond the ritual itself.” We know the power of thoughts and intentions on water; water stamped with positive words was far more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing than that stamped with dark, negative phrases.

With the money-driven lifestyle, we forget what kind of effect thoughts can have on us and our surroundings.

Be mindful; before you eat, or drink water, be thankful for it.

Put love and good intentions into everything you consume, as this will have a direct effect on your physical body.

Following such a simple practice can lead to a better life and healthier living.
