The higher, more-subtle energies ("light," as I like to call it; it was "shen" to the Taoists) of the human body are consumed by certain foods and activities. I don't know if that idea is supported by MBT; it is just what I have learned from my own esoteric and shamanic studies.
Pork is a prime example. Eating an animal that has a high degree of reflective consciousness (swine, deer, cows, and so on) consumes a lot of light. The energetic patterns in the meat have to be "converted" into human patterns, which takes light to do. The less the degree of reflective consciousness inherent in the meat (e.g., clams, mussels), the less light needed for the conversion, as there is less that needs converting.
You could think of eating high-consciousness meat as leaving the backlight on on your cellphone all day: The battery (your light) will get drained fast. You'll recharge it later (provided no more draining), but it is not pleasant to go around with a low light-charge if you are trying to refine yourself.
If you ever go for an Ayahuasca ceremony, abstaining from pork and alcohol (among other things) is an absolute must. Ayahuasca will open your aura to influence from the sources within and around you. Opening yourself up to be imprinted with the energetic patterns of high-consciousness meat is not a good idea. They are animal patterns; they are not in accord with human patterns. What's more, the shaman(s) will be "coding" patterns of healing, purification, and protection onto you, and these should not be interfered with by other, disharmonious patterns -- otherwise, it's a chaos in your aura.
If you would eat meat, my advice is to eat high-consciousness meat only rarely or not at all. I would stick to seafood and poultry. And if going for an Ayahuasca ceremony, follow the strict diet prescribed by wise, reputable Ayahuasqueros (e.g., no alcohol, no pork, no salt, no cheese, etc., etc. -- you will be eating a lot of vegetables, plantains, and rice).
I apologize in advance if I posted this topic on the wrong discussion board.
What's the spiritual problem with eating pork?
I thought that Muslims don't eat pork because in ancient times there might have been severe case of Trichinosis or some pork associated illness going on with the population and they decided to link pork consumption to a sin in order to keep the illness from spreading. But then when going to a healing medium (many months ago) the diet after receiving the healing energy consisted of avoiding pork - along with no alcohol, among a few other things - for a week. That got me thinking that perhaps the consumption of pork does affect negatively our spiritual energy. Is there anything in MBT that explains a possible link there?
I understand we should keep our bodies healthy so as to go through the learning process of life in the best way possible, but I believe everything in their right dose, in balance, is not harmful.
I was thinking about this yesterday as my mother prepared pork for dinner and guess what happened? My husband, toddler and I got indigestion. It's not like we've never had pork before, so it's almost as if I was intuitively picking up on something not right about eating pork (or that particular pork?). My husband took leave from work to rest. My toddler is fine since she puked it all out last night. I just got a mildly upset stomach.
