From The Hidden Side of Things- “By Our Habits – Food” by CW
Leadbeater and How to Create Healthy Meals
The food which we eat is taken into the body and we actually make it
part of ourselves, so it is clearly evident that the magnetism with which it is
charged is a matter of great moment to us. Both its physical and its magnetic
purity are important, yet some people neglect one and some the other. In India,
for example, great weight is attached to magnetic purity, and a man will not
eat food which has been subjected to the magnetism of some one of lower caste.
On the other hand he is much less careful than we are in the West as to the
physical cleanliness of the preparations, forgetting that nothing which is
physically dirty can ever be magnetically pure. We are usually particular as to
the physical cleanliness, but we never think of the question of magnetic
A Food-Scape! YAY!
The fact which most
seriously affects the magnetism of food is that it is touched so much by the
hands of the cook in the course of its preparation. Now the special magnetism
of a person flows out most strongly through the hands, and consequently food
which is touched by the hands cannot but be highly charged with that magnetism.
This is specially true in the case of pastry and bread, which are kneaded by
hand in countries which are too backward to have learnt the use of machinery
for these purposes. All food made in that way would be absolutely unfit to be
eaten at all, were it not for the fact that fortunately the action of fire in
the baking or the cooking removes the traces of most kinds of physical
magnetism. Still it is eminently desirable that the cook should touch the food
as little as possible, and so ladles and spoons, which can readily be
demagnetised, should always be used in cooking and serving everything; and they
should be kept rigorously clean.
In order to prevent
any avoidable mixture of magnetism many an occult student insists upon always
using his own private cup and spoon. Madame Blavatsky strongly advised this,
and said that when it could not be done the cup and the spoon that were used
should be demagnetised before each meal. The ordinary man pays no attention
whatever to matters such as these, but the student of occultism who is trying
to enter upon the Path must be more careful. It is possible to demagnetise food
by a firm effort of the will, and with a little practice a mere wave of the
hand coupled with a strong thought will do the thing almost instantaneously.
But it must be remembered that demagnetisation removes neither physical dirt
nor its astral counterpart, though it may take away other astral influence; and
therefore every precaution must be taken to see that cleanliness is perfect in
all culinary arrangements.
Food also absorbs the magnetism of those who are in close proximity to
us when we are eating. It is for that reason that in India a man prefers to eat
alone, and must not be seen eating by one of lower caste. The mixture which
arises from eating in public amidst a crowd of strangers, as in a restaurant,
is always undesirable, and should be avoided as much as possible. The magnetism
of one' s own family is usually more sympathetic, and at any rate one is
accustomed to it, so that it is much less likely to be harmful than the sudden
introduction of a combination of entirely strange vibrations, many of which are
most likely quite out of harmony with our own.
There are, however,
always two kinds of magnetism in every article of food-- the internal and the
external-- the former belonging to its own character, the latter impressed upon
it from without. The magnetism of the merchant who sells it and of the cook are
both of the latter kind, and can therefore be removed by the action of the
fire; but the magnetism which is inherent in it is not at all affected by that
action. No amount of cooking of dead flesh, for example, can take away from it its
inherently objectionable character, nor all the feelings of pain and horror and
hatred with which it is saturated. No person who can see that magnetism and the
vibrations which it sets up can possibly eat meat.
