Similar to leaving your fingerprints everywhere you go, you also leave a trace of your emotions.
I was watching a cooking show called Master Chef and one of the cooks was getting frustrated because his dish was not going as planned and the time was running out. One of the judges came by and told him that he was cooking with anger and showed him how it showed up in the food he was making. His pasta was ripping and smushed up. He was putting his anger into his food and the person who ate it, would then receive the emotions.
This happens when we cook at home as well. If we’re tired from a long work day and come home, the way we chop our food, the way we stir our dishes, etc. will also be transferred into our food. When our family eats it, they will feel that way also.
This is the same in all other aspects of your life. If you are angry when you get home, what emotional blueprints do you leave behind? When you cook, clean and interact with your family what emotions are present?
Take note and if you are not happy with what you’re leaving, change your state. Perhaps try cooking with gratitude and love. See how this affects your food….and in turn your life.
I did this experiment personally as well. I was getting tired of pumping milk for baby Lincoln several times a day while at work and was starting to think of it as a chore. One day, while I was pumping, I thought, what else could I be doing while I’m pumping to improve upon this experience? I came up with, I could infuse gratitude into this experience. So, I thought of all the people and things in my life that I was grateful for. I thought of how pumping milk provides nourishment and comfort to my child and how many people can’t or struggle to do this. By the end of my session, I was so happy for this experience. I know that this milk he drinks will be even better than the previous.
