Bless this pizza

November is the month of the harvest festival in many countries. Widely believed to date back to 1621 it is strongly linked to the Pilgrim Fathers in North America  and the reaping of the first harvest in their new home country. A day for feasting. And for giving thanks for life’s blessings.

Turkey of course is the time honoured and traditional fare. And pumpkin pie, I believe. That is something I have a bit of trouble getting my head around. However, I am assured it is delicious.

Did you know that food has an energetic signature or vibration.  As do all living things. Pure, raw, wholesome foods have a higher vibration. Some of that is lost in cooking. However, it seems that the time honoured tradition of voicing gratitude and asking for our food to be blessed has benefits other than bowing our heads and thanking God. Blessed food has a higher energetic vibration than non-blessed food.

 ” Being present in a state of love and gratitude allows us to receive more energy from the food on multiple levels. This consideration is the origin of the tradition of praying and giving thanks before taking a meal. The positive energy of prayer changes the food with beneficial life force. Kirlian and GDV (Gas Discharge Visualisation) camera photography confirm that food that has been blessed has a brighter aura and thus carries more life energy,” writes Katrine Volynsky on Conscious Eating.

A sampling of blessings to grace your table for  Thanksgiving –

Bless the food before us, the family beside us, and the love between us.

Every Thanksgiving I am grateful for stretchy pants.

Lord bless this sumptuous feast and bless the pizza guy who delivered it.

Hey dude, God man, cool dude high in the sky, thankx for this grub I’m gonna devour.


Happy Thanksgiving. May you be abundantly blessed.

  1. Vibration is in and amongst everything.. So it doesn’t surprise me that saying a blessing, sending energy into food alters that energy..
    We do not hold a thanksgiving here in the UK as Elizabeth has also said, Pumpkins are grown more now for Halloween than eating here..
    I have made pumpkin cup cakes once upon a time, the recipe is on my blog, but they needed more spice I felt for they not my own cup of tea.. 🙂 lol..
    Hope you have a glorious new week.. ❤ Hugs

    1. The wife of one of our state premiers was renowned for her pumpkin scones. I think that’s about as far as it goes here in Oz. Except for the Halloween pumpkins. That traditions seems to be creeping in here. You too have a great week xx

  2. How about THIS one for a blessing: “Good food, good meat, good Lord, let’s eat!” 😀 Pumpkin pie is one of my favorites. Hardly anyone takes the time anymore to dig out the guts of a pumpkin to make it. They just buy it already canned. It has all the autumn spices in it, cloves, ginger, and cinnamon, though you can buy one call Allspice that has all three in it. (I thnk that’s what it is.) I’m pretty sure the pilgrims hollowed out their pumpkins and made a custard out of the pulp. Then they poured it back in the pumpkin shell ad baked it. When it’s one, even the shell of the pumpkin itself can be eaten.
