Drinking the first cup of tea (or coffee) in bed, as soon as we get up, is a treat many of us look forward to and in some cases cannot do without. Also, serving a partner breakfast in bed is considered very romantic. We have to remember though that every action of ours has the potential to attract spiritual positivity or negativity into our lives. Undertaking spiritual research into this small but routine activity has shed a different light on this habit.
2. Effect of sleep on the mouth cavity
When a person is asleep, due to the sluggishness of the body, there is an increase in the subtle Tama component. Along with this, as our spiritual practice is also at its lowest during sleep, we are spiritually the most vulnerable at that time. The environment at night too is more Tama predominant than at any other time of the day and negative energies are also the most active. As a result when we sleep, we are more susceptible to attacks by ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.).
The mouth cavity is especially susceptible to get saturated with Tama vibrations as it is most associated with the Absolute Cosmic Water Principle (). This is because the Absolute Cosmic Water Principle (Āpatattva) has the property of retaining maximal negative Tama vibrations. As a result, after a full night’s sleep, there is a high build-up of the distressing Tama vibrations in the mouth cavity along with a foul odour.
3. Spiritual effect of having tea in bed (before brushing one’s teeth)
As there is a high predominance of distressing vibrations in the mouth cavity when one gets up in the morning, anything that is ingested at that time also imbibes the subtle Tama component. In the drawing based on subtle-knowledge below the various subtle negative vibrations that come into play while drinking a cup of tea are shown. Moreover tea by itself is Tama-Raja predominant and this in turn adds to the build-up of distressing vibrations. Whenever there is a build-up of distressing Tama vibrations there is also an increase in susceptibility to being attacked by ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.).
This drawing based on subtle-knowledge has been drawn by Ms. Priyanka Lotlikar through an advanced sixth sense of vision. It has been verified and authenticated by H.H. Dr. Athavale. When checked through advanced sixth sense, the drawing based on subtle-knowledge was found to be 80% accurate.
Please refer to the table below for the description of the various Absolute Cosmic Principles (Panchatattva) in the drawing based on subtle-knowledge.
Attraction of a flow of distressing energy towards the tea as it is Tama-Raja predominant
Creation of a ring of distressing energy which then continues to revolve in an activated state

Medical forums and dental authorities on the Internet seem to be divided on the issue whether it is better to brush before or after breakfast. However from a spiritual perspective brushing one’s teeth and rinsing one’s mouth reduces the distressing Tama vibrations that build up overnight in the mouth cavity. It is for this reason that it is recommended that we eat or drink only after brushing teeth in the morning.
