Kemetic Diet?

Post by Ankhhape on 24.06.08 13:38

I am placing this topic here because I feel a diet contributes to the spirit.
If the Admin's feel it should be moved, please do so.

That aside, is there a Kemetic or even better an Asetian diet that initiates can follow?

What we eat directly influences our physical body and health. Since the body/physical is entwined with its metaphysical and spiritual counterpart, your assumption is correct when you say that a proper diet can, in a way, enhance the spirit as well.

I don't believe there is any ancient Kemetic diet still at use in our days, under an Egyptology scholar perspective. However, it is common knowledge that the Asetian initiates are taught how to balance their mind, body and spirit. This leads to a responsible awareness of what they ingest, in a diet that focuses not only on a healthy physical body, but also to facilitate energy sensibility and manipulation.
This is true especially in the lineages of Guardian (Scorpion) and Concubine (Scarab), that can better benefit from a specifically planned diet for spiritual and metaphysical development. Not so needed in the case of a Viperine (Serpent), who's natural sensitivity of the subtle world and spiritually awareness is so developed that probably even a not so careful diet might not be able to compromise.

Unfortunately I am not aware of any specific diets and teachings they use in what comes to this subject. It is something that would be interesting to learn and experiment with, maybe even under the light of science, but it is knowledge that I do not have access to. If anyone else in the forum has this information, and is entitled to disclosure it in any way, I would like to read about it as well.

A'nen Sedjet, I believe this subject concerns more the field of metaphysical studies than directly connected to religion and spirituality, so with your permission I moved it to the proper category.

The Asetian Bible hints us in that direction, that there are some concerns from the Asetian initiate on what he eats and how he eats. In the book we are taught to understand how fat tissue can prevent energy flow, working as a barrier against the practitioner and reducing his sensitivity to the metaphysical. This is the reason behind why most vampires are actually quite thin, and why that the ones that are not, strive to become thinner. It is a spiritual responsibility, how I see it. The same is valid for people with over developed muscular mass. This makes me wonder if that image of the "dumb muscular guy" actually has a sense in a metaphysical approach. lol!

At least most of the enlightened among us tend to see all those muscular studs as meat vessels with sand in their heads. Cool

Of course Elendor, you don't need my permission in your house ever Pharaoh
I know the Egyptians ate a lot of fish, but would any of you consider a meatless diet proper for a Kemetic diet?
And of fasting, although not diet related, do you think fasting is a purificating ritual of Body, Mind & Spirit?

Thanks everyone,
A'nen

I am sure the Order of Aset Ka provides their initiates with an intensive training not only of the soul, as well as physical and mental. This probably is also connected to many other traditions which they draw knowledge from, as the practices of Yoga and Ayurvedic medicine from India. But it is pretty obvious from their Bible that they take advantage of the spiritual and medical knowledge from the Orient and far East, particularly from China and Japan, since they make better use of concepts present in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture and pressure points to activate healing, health and energy.

Where as this may not be an Asetian or even a Kemetic diet, it is something that a Yogi has told me today ( today I went to a few yoga schools looking for the right teacher).

He said: The Spirit is the body's fuel. The body derives its nourishment from pranic energy, but when the body is dirty, it is hard for it to use pranic energy. When people eat cooked food and put things into their bodies that don't belong there the third eye shuts.

Eating in a healthy and harmonious way keeps us attuned and able to commune witht he Divine. Eat foods of high vibration, raw, organic and living.

He recommended a raw food diet.

Em Hotep.

I don't know of any specific diets. What I know is that usually Viperines don't need to go on diets, because of their metabolism. They tend to be naturally thin. Being thin is helpful when it comes to spiritual awareness and energy manipulation. Concubines and Guardians, though, sometimes tend to gain some weight. For that reason, I believe most of them take extra-care concerning what they eat. Not only to be healthy (because sometimes spiritual awareness doesn't imply being healthy), but also to be fit for spiritual growth.

Best regards,
Karnath.

This subject is very interesting. Over the past years I have had to really watch what I eat. Now I'm regular at the local health food store. Processed foods usally hurt me physically so I try to stick to "good" foods.

At one point during my development I was easily influenced by processed foods, but I keep a fair balance now between fake and real foods, so it doesn't seem to have an effect anymore. Mostly I just go after what I crave and am very healthy.

Would you care to give us more details on your healthy diet? It is always an interesting subject to exchange experiences.

I usually follow a raw food diet, lots of fish, water and breads
Before an important upcoming event I usually fast three days before and tune in to what I need to do during those days. This has worked very well when I am composing and for performing.
Then when family get togethers and Holyday stuff pop up I don't feel bad about eating whatever there is . . . and a lot of it!
Unfortunately, I still drink alcohol a bit . . . hey, I'm only human!

Jonathan,
One big problem with my diet was excess refined sugars(high fructose corn syrup). Cutting it out was hard at first, because alot of foods in the US have it in it somewhere. Cola's too had to go. Now water, teas,juices, ect. are all I drink. And as already stated processed foods. If I can't pronounce the names of ingredients, then I don't need it.Laughing
One tip too is when you look at the ingredients most say "Natural and artifical ingredients", I have been told this is how to get around not having to put "bad" ingredients on the label. I don't know if this is true.
