This program discusses the possibility of breatharianism, or living without eating food, and is not a full instruction. For your safety, please do not attempt to cease eating without proper expert guidance.

In scriptures, the human body is often referred to as the temple of God. Yet, it is quite an uncommon privilege for any soul to attain this sacred abode that houses the Divine, as it is truly a blessing to be reborn as a human being. On several occasions, Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken about the rarity of this phenomenon:

To be reincarnated in the human world is hard. You have to have enough Human Quality. You have to have affinity with the parents and with the society, with the people around which you are born. Very difficult. To be a human, you need some merit. You have done something good in the past in order to be able to pick a human birth.

As a living temple of God, the human body is fully equipped with miraculous wonders that can be awakened in those who are spiritually conscious and have complete faith in the Creator of all life. Inedia, Latin for “fasting,” is the human ability to live without food. Since time immemorial, there have always been individuals who can sustain themselves on prana, or the vital life force. Through the grace of the Providence, inediates, people who follow a food-free lifestyle, can draw the energy from nature to nourish themselves:

They live on the chi from the ground, or from the forest, and from the sun and from the air. They make use of all that. Or they live on love, on faith alone.

These individuals are known as breatharians (pranarians or inediates), solarians, or waterians, and they come from all walks of life, from different cultures, and all corners of the world. Indeed, the possibilities and miracles in this life as our benevolent Creator has designed for us are endless; we only need to connect within to recognize our abounding largess as God’s children. Supreme Master Ching Hai has lovingly recommended a weekly series on Supreme Master Television to introduce those individuals of the past and present who have chosen to live food-free on Earth. May their spiritual stories enthrall you; may hearts be opened, and horizons be expanded. We now invite you to join us for part 2 of our 4-part program entitled, “Elitom ben Yisrael: Breatharianism for a Working Person,” on Between Master and Disciples.

For your safety, please do not attempt to cease eating without proper expert guidance.

Hallo, enlightened viewers. Thank you for joining us as we return once again to Ohio, USA, to speak with Elitom ben Yisrael who will give us a little more insight into the first days of his lifestyle as a breatharian. On our last episode, Elitom shared with our Supreme Master Television correspondent a new phrase which he had coined when talking about breatharianism:

I want to change it to “food alchemy” so people can have a better understanding of what we’re talking about. This is a science, so you’re actually dealing with the alchemy of foods. We’re at a level where food alchemy has upgraded itself, where people understand that they can live a full life without ever touching meat or touching an animal by-product. “Food alchemy” does not end there, just like technology and science, so that’s why we want people to understand that this is a science.

It has also upgraded itself again, that people are just living off of fruit and people are going onto the levels of living off of prana, but it’s still on a basis of food alchemy because, the bottom line, the reason why people eat is because you’re looking for energy, and the body can run off of other sources of energy and this is why we named it “food alchemy.”

Elitom also discussed his experiences when he first started the 21-day process to transition to becoming food-free.

I wish I could have gone to a retreat, but like I said, having a job, got to keep a roof over your head and stuff like this, how am I going into this, doing these everyday things that this society requires for you to be into it? So I had to think of a new way, and it took deep thought, so that’s when I started creating another level to making diet changes. I went from veganism to the live and raw foods, to the juicing. Taking those levels, still doing my duties and work, and even on those levels there were healing crises. There were times where you’d be tired just still eating, going to those levels until the body gets used to it. But when I’d seen when the body started getting used to it that it can keep going, then you just go further and further and further.

What did you do when you were hungry during this 21-day process? How did you deal with it?

Well, there is another term that I’m going to bring up that sounds kind of new. What breatharian is, is also not only food alchemy that I said – so you can deal with the scientific… the energies you put in your body has an effect on how you’re operating – but breatharianism is also a “prolonged meditation.” It goes hand in hand with meditation because that’s what it is. Sort of like when you’re in a meditative state, you’re not sitting there eating popcorn. You follow me?

So, basically, you’re taking your life – you’re not just in a sitting position of meditation now – you’re basically doing things, walking through life, and when different things are taking place, stresses in a body, now your mind is challenging it, so it’s going to another level. You find out that you don’t get hungry – when a body starts growling and stuff like that, that is toxicity moving and actually the intestines is trying to rid that out of the body. That’s all the body is going through, you start realizing this, you start going into a higher level of self realization.

So that’s why when I got into earlier about conscious tasting that a lot of breatharians do, they understand they can do that, because it’s not hunger; the body is going to get rid of it. But now their mind got so strong they can actually lead the toxicity out the body, compared to the other person who, when you first get into these stages, is saturated there, you’re looking at it as hunger, “Let me go get something else because it stops.” Well, of course it stops because soon as you put something in the body, the detoxification process stopped.

So actually the pang that we feel is not the pang for food? It’s not the pang for food at all. It’s nothing but the intestines start moving to get rid of the toxicity. That’s all it is. Those people who fast often will find out once they get past the third day hunger pang stop. You get to the seventh day, a lot of major toxicity within the body has purged themselves out and you’re not hungry. Usually when you eat, your mind goes off like that – it’s because of conditioning and emotional imbalances.

Is that the same with drinking, absorbing liquid?

Yes, because the liquids, the more toxicity you have in your body the more you should drink. Of course drinking water will help detoxify the body, or the juice fast and stuff like that. That’s what it’s doing. The liquid is just another, sort of like what I talked about last time about the apple. It’s nothing but molecules put together, but the thickness of the apple, the molecules, are just moving a lot more slowly. When you get the apple juice, it’s the same molecules but the behavior of the atoms changed and the molecules are just moving a lot faster.

That’s what made the solid into a liquid. So we get into breatharianism, there is a vibration of an apple that you cannot see. And they have machines now, like the harmonic translator is one of them. That is a machine where you can put your finger, put your hair, into it, it will tell you everything that’s going on with the body. And they do have now where you research the harmonic translators, you can give a person an herb through an email because it’s nothing more than a vibration. They also have drugs and everything else. I dealt in a school one time where they were giving those classes where they give kids drugs to cool them down. They went from the medication in a pill and now they’re given in a light. So we’re already on a level of vibration – the thought can start feeding the body if a person allows it to and starts paying more conscious attention.

He also addressed an important level that has a significant impact on a person who is going through the initial stages of becoming food-free.

There’s a level you get to where you understand that the body can live off of more prana and it’s called “conscious tasting.” Now I want to bring this in: when you get to a certain level you can start setting perimeters for your life, because all of our lives there’s nothing but a tapestry, a weave of thought process. That’s what creates the totality of your life and that goes to the spouse you have, to the things you’re eating, to the things you’re not eating, to the clothes you wear.

This is all your thought process. What a breatharian did was they just gained more domination of their life instead of letting somebody else guide it. Now you’re weaving your tapestry of life. Now dealing with conscious tasting, say, for instance you’re with a friend, a breatharian will go and probably have tea with them at the café. But somebody would jump up and say “Oh, you’re not a breath… See, you need tea! See, look at that!” So that’s why a lot of them don’t want to fanfare because “why can’t I live a normal life?” in other words. That’s what they’re saying without.

And a human mind has an ability to point fingers in order to justify its own behavior. Because this is not like an alcoholics anonymous class where you get up and say, “Hey, my name is Elitom and I’ve been food-free for 6 months, keep coming back it works.” So you don’t want to get into that cycle. That’s why a lot of breatharians don’t come out because they still want to live the perimeters that they’ve set for their life; but they did take their life to another level to where they have more time, more tapestry, and they’re reaping the benefits, and all they’re doing is just trying to show it to the rest of the flock, so they can pull themselves up to it also; so it can go onto what… stopping global warming.

That’s going to give us more time on the planet. So that’s the whole gift. So there we have it right there on being normal, they go up to another circumstance of dealing with our spiritual walk.

Joyous viewers, join us again next Sunday when we continue with part 3 of “Elitom ben Yisrael: Breatharianism for a Working Person” on Between Master and Disciples. Hard-working viewers, please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television for Good People, Good Works, coming up next after Noteworthy News. May your life be filled with wondrous miracles.

What was the experience like for Elitom ben Yisrael in the initial stages of transitioning into the breatharian lifestyle?

You do go through a time period of being alone to redirect the pieces of which way you want your life to go. Like I said before, it was a tapestry of energies: you had to lunch, breakfast, dinner; you had the different engagements, that everywhere you went there was this food taking place, and those interests start fading when you start breaking the reality of matter or the illusion of matter. So you start creating other realties on which route you want to go.
