Excerpt from: DECODING THE SHAMAN WITHIN: A Metaphysical Journey by O.M. Kelly.
My grandmother was always explaining herbs and spices that she learned about in China during the preparation of each meal. “Be careful of curry, don’t rob the meal of its own flavor, it is there to enhance the meal and the spices are to retrain the lining of the stomach as well as feed the endocrine system, and then work its way through to the immune system”, she would say. “Be very careful of chili, it is only to be used once a month, if then. Why do I tell you this? We speak the English language; you don’t need to inflame or stimulate your ego into distancing itself from taking a step forward. It needs to keep within its own boundaries to allow your emotions and feelings to also take their place within your vocabulary. Chili disturbs the language we speak, where we have a tendency to become more abrupt and callous with our choice of words”.
Through research, and the lessons learned from customers who came into our restaurant and wanted more chili in their meals, I quickly read their body language and realized that they were trapped in their thinking and were desperate to try and perpetuate their mind. Chili gave them that instant rush of cortisol which tied them over, (cortisol, the primary stress hormone, increases sugars—glucose, in the bloodstream, enhances the brain's use of glucose and increases the availability of substances that repair tissues). I discovered that the chemical elements in chili force the body to go beyond its normal comprehension, where it becomes addictive to the consumer through the ego’s demands. Their tired and stressed voice is usually the first things we begin to notice, then to their own detriment, they become aggressive and quick to show their anger, as their overstressed ego tries to regain control over their thoughts in all situations and conversations. Due to the body’s over production of cortisol, over time, people become lethargic and develop a weakened immune system. They will crave for more chili, as the mind of their ego becomes inflamed and reaches for a perpetual escape as their original thinking has been annulled, through the ego’s vilification.
Chili is a plant of medication, to be used sparingly in healing. It lifts the layers of the stomach lining and distributes the toxins that are caught up in that area; all created through your repetitious thinking of an old thought or idea that has still not been digested correctly; those old thoughts have already served their purpose to you. Therefore, by you overdosing on chili there is no need to purge or permanently cleanse yourself of everything you have placed in your mouth. I noticed in hot countries if used sparingly, it is a healer to cool the body down when one becomes overheated and overloaded, where too many thoughts are running rampant with nowhere to reside as they have not let go of their past thinking. Now do you understand the haunting of old thoughts forced upon us by our own ego, as to how we create the diseases that occur in later life?
