You may have heard how prayer, even if conducted by others, can help you heal. Well, how about eating something that has been blessed? According to Intentional Chocolate, if you eat their sweets, you will experience decreased stress, increased calmness, and less fatigue. “In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study that was published in the scientific peer-reviewed journal, Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing (October 2007) it was found that one ounce of Intentional Chocolate per day for three days increased subjects’ well-being, vigor and energy by an average of 67 percent and, in some cases, up to 1,000 percent, when compared to a control group.”
How does chocolate become blessed? Experienced meditators at the Deer Park Buddhist Monastery in Madison, WI, project positive intention into a device that is designed to capture, hold, and then transfer intention into food.

After eating the chocolate myself for three days, I did feel pretty good. But was that just the chocolate-released endorphins speaking? Is it really possible to transfer intention to food?
