5 Foods to Help Support Spiritual Growth

foods for spiritual growth

We all know that it is always important to nourish your body with clean, organic and unprocessed foods, however during times of spiritual growth or awakening it is even more important that your body is nourished with foods to support your changing vibration.

Eating certain foods are also important during times of change, times of awakening and times of high emotional stress.

As your vibration level moves up in frequency, it can cause your energy to feel displaced, shaky or even unstable. You may even start experiencing bodily sensations, vivid dreams or feel sensitive towards others.

During this time, it is important that you nourish your body with foods that are going to not only support you through this process but also support your pineal gland.

The pineal gland is the “seat of consciousness” and is often referred to as the third eye. It is responsible for our dreams, visions and being able to connect us with our higher purpose or source energy. 

The Pineal Gland has other functions in the body too, however from a more spiritual or esoteric approach, the pineal glad is truly how we awaken into our own consciousness and raise our vibration. 

If you are looking to support or enhance your intuition, refocus your energy or need some help with ascension symptoms, here are 5 foods that will help support you:

Note: all of these need to be organic or home grown without pesticides in order to be effective

1. Cold pressed Extra Virgin Olive or Coconut Oil

Healthy fats like those found in olive and coconut oil not only support brain and nervous system function but they also help us to expand our intuition.

Often when you first come into your awakening, you may feel anxious or even depressed as you try to adjust to the changes. Eating a diet rich in these fats can help to calm you and keep you balanced through the process.

These fats are also stabilising and will help you to connect with Mother Earth. They can also increase your intuitive connection with nature.

2. Raw Cacao  

Cacao is not only high in nutrients and antioxidants but it is also believed to help support the functioning of the pineal gland and enhance your intuition.


Raw cacao is also a potent detoxifier and can help shift toxic energy out of your body and aura. It is also highly energizing and can help to stabilise energy levels throughout the day.

Cacao can also help to elevate your mood and help you to calm the thoughts in your mind, making it perfect for meditation or mindfulness practices.

3. Beets 

Beets help to detox the body of heavy metals and can assist in the cleansing of the pineal gland.

Beets are also very grounding and can help you to feel more centered and balanced, especially if you are suffering from ascension symptoms or just feeling ‘out of touch’ with reality.

They can also help you to stay spiritually and emotionally strong around people who may be draining or when you are feeling sensitive to energy.

4. Herbs 

There are so many wonderful herbs that support ascension, intuition and awakening.

Fresh herbs and herbal teas have such a strong and powerful vibration themselves, so use your intuition to guide you to the right herb at the right time.

Herbs can help you to expand your consciousness, heal your body, enhance your psychic abilities and raise the frequency of your vibration. In fact, herbs are amazing at helping you to move through into a higher level of consciousness.

Certain herbs can also help you deal with ascension symptoms and the opening of the chakras. You can read more about this here.

5. Water

Staying hydrated is always important, but during times of ascension it is crucial. Water helps you to detox negative energy and emotions out of your body and also helps to clear toxins.

During times of spiritual growth sometimes the pains and wounds of the past are also uncovered in order to be released. Staying hydrated can help release some of these emotions and can aid in the letting go process.

Staying hydrated also supports the functioning of your brain which in turn, supports the health of the pineal gland and your nervous system.

Water also helps to keep the energy moving throughout your body and can help keep your energy levels up.

Along with testing out some of these foods in your diet, it is important to eliminate fluoride, alcohol, soda, processed grains, GMOs and pesticides as they all inhibit functioning of the pineal gland and intuitive development.
