Our next focus in this series is centered around meat and health. This video starts by acknowledging why we’re focusing on these topics, rather than astral projection or different dimensions. In a simple sense, we can’t experience these higher levels of reality if we are all sick. It drastically lowers our vibration and allows us to only experience a sliver of what the higher realms have to offer.

This is one of the more controversial topics because of many conflicting studies. Are animal products good for us? Are they bad? We’ve gathered information from an array of places to disseminate the whole picture.

Generally, meat is split up into four groups: Processed, Red, White and Organic meats.

Processed food, as we know, is the most deadly. Many factories take different scraps of meat, throw them together with different additives and sell them as food.

Red meat comes from animals like cows, lambs and pigs. They considered nutrient rich but are also high in saturated fat which clogs arteries and is not very healthy in excess.

Next is white meat. These are meats come from different birds and some fish too. These are generally considered more healthy as they are more lean and have less fat.

Finally, there are organic meat. These are meats from animals that haven’t been given hormones and are grass fed. If there is any type of meat you are going to eat, this is the most ideal form.

It seems though, even though there are worse meats and healthier meats, all meat in general can still raise cancer risks, and this is very relative to the Heme Iron in the meat, which is carcinogenic to our bodies when meat is cooked. There are several other main reasons for why meat is unhealthy as well, of which are outlined in this video.

There is a myth that we need a certain, high level of protein in our diets that need to come from animal products. This is very untrue, as a wide range of vegetables have the same, if not more protein in them, in this video we go over a big list of high protein plant based sources.

Many nutritionists say that about 50 – 70 grams a day, or 500 grams a week of meat is the ideal amount you’d want to eat if you feel like you need it at all. This is about three burgers a week. However, more and more scientists are coming out saying that it might be better to just cut it out of your diet entirely.

    I think the key is to find what works with your individual body. I tried to embrace a vegetarian lifestyle in a gradual switch. I learned a lot. My body doesn’t process legumes and grains very well. I gained weight and felt bloated. I also learned that I have a sugar addiction. For me, I feel healthy and have more energy when I stick to meat protein (organic, grass-fed) and vegetables. My body functions better. And while I understand all of the health concerns that meat brings; in my own personal instance, I am not healthy without animal proteins. So many times, I have read and heard that people cannot spiritually mature if they are ingesting animal proteins which supposedly has a lower energy signature. I find it hard to believe that I would be trapped in a body that cannot evolve beyond a point due to the need for animal protein to survive. So that leaves me in a quandary and am led to believe that if my body is healthy, then I can work through all the other issues in life to become my best me, regardless of my food. Peace and love to all.

    I work with one energy technique and my teacher speaks of meat to us. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses in our chakra systems. We work with the system called a Quartex. It’s the Legendary 13 chakra system. It looks a lot like a Kabbalah except the Kabbalah is missing two orbs. Anyhow not the point. Some peoples chakra systems can tolerate meat and need it for grounding, muscles and bones. Some people simply do not need meat and can gain muscle, stay grounded and have good bones. It’s the source of the meat that you get. If you have a factory raised shot up sad brutalized cow. You in fact get that energy from that meat. And happy cows or well taken care of cows you get the better energy.

    Also woman who are having pregnancy issues that are vegan or vegetarian have harder times conceiving then meat eaters. This I am very well versed with this statement. I am working with a naturopathic doctor that is the head of her field with 86.9% success rate getting woman over the age of 40 pregnant. Here is her statement on this issue. https://naturalfertilitybreakthrough.com/healthy-eating-fertility-foods/why-vegetarian-diet-is-not-good-for-optimum-fertility/

    I do agree with burnt food and cooking methods otherwise it’s really up to the person and being conscious of where they get there meat/ dairy from.

    Is there a “RELIABLE” source to learn better ways of eating? My Wife and I have been talking about this very thing. I guess with all the conflicting information out there it is a little daunting to get started.

      Thanks for you comment Steven! We have been doing lots of research on this very topic and have recently written an article with many credible studies and lots of great information for you to read!

    I have been a long supporter of spirit science in the means of giving a safe free thinking forum for all. I cannot condone any saying that says a human can live off of a vegan lifestyle. Many adults can in fact live off a vegan life style if they’ve studied and ensure proper vitamins/proteins in there diet. The problem is adults think that children can live off the same things they can as vegans. Many children have been malnutritioned as a consequence, it is irresponsible to not have a disclaimer for adults to research accordingly responsibly for themselves and if they put children under the same diet they should research the nutrients a child needs. Please do not contribute to this, I’ve thought about reducing my meat intake but I know for a fact what my sons need are more than what I need. Meat is an easy and cheaper solution, but most can easily forget that. Not all of us specialize in nutrition and are aware of the harm it may cause to children. Please let it be known.

    A lady told me that she knew someone who only fed her cat, organic vegan food. That the cat died pretty quick.

      You do know cats are carnivorous in their biology and therefore wouldn’t be able to sustain living on a plant based diet. Humans on the other hand have very different biology and if you want to learn more you can check out this great video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmXynDLkbXY

      Hehe well apart from the fact that we don’t buy meat and therefore wouldn’t have any to send you, we wouldn’t want to send you something that could cause you increased health risks, so instead we will send you our blessings and love 🙂
