A lovely couple who stayed in our guest room for a few days left me a note every morning to thank the breakfast I made for them. I never expected anything like this at all, so I was so stunned when I found it on the first day. They kept surprising me with sweet notes until they left.
Sometimes I wonder, or should I say worry if the breakfast I prepare for the guests meets their expectations. Because most of the guests are Americans and they usually eat American breakfasts which are entirely different from my vegan breakfast. So, even though I know my breakfast is very healthy (I make everything from scratch using local organic vegetables), I am always a bit nervous whenever I serve them. So, when I received a note from them, I felt much encouragement.
Whenever I feel doubt about what I am doing or where to aim for the next step, I always receive a sign from somewhere. This time was a very clear note from the guests, but sometimes it can be very subtle. It could be kind of hidden from the conversation with your friends or an article you accidentally found from the internet or newspapers. However, there is always a sign for us. For my case, after I change my diet, eating more whole grains and organic vegetables avoiding white sugar and dairy, I think the quality of my life, in general, has been shifted. I get more tuned to the universe and bring good synchronicity into my life.
I think it is because all grains and vegetables grow naturally, receiving all kinds of energy from the earth such as soil, sunlight, rain, wind, and love from the farmers, so they are packed with full of well-balanced energies. If we cook them using the right seasonings such as sea salt, properly fermented miso or soy sauce, we can create very powerful food that can nourish us. I heard when we take in good vibrations, they correct distorted frequencies within our cells, and I think it is so true.
The couple who left me a note asked me if there is a cookbook that I can recommend for them. So I recommended a book called "Mayumi's Kitchen" by Mayumi Nishimura. Mayumi used to work as a chef for Madonna for years. Her recipes are simple but very creative. I have her several books in Japanese. I love all her books, but this English version has many photos and is easy to follow. If you are interested in the macrobiotic diet, you can check her book!
