What a wonderful morning! I woke feeling inspired by a new day. I also felt as if a lead weight were in my stomach, so I proceeded to do some Yoga stretches to encourage a shift in my intestines. Felt better immediately.
This is a wonderful pose, the Plough, for toning the digestive organs as well as the thyroid gland. After, I had a big glass of reverse osmosis water mixed with organic lemon and decided to make a raspberry smoothie. Ideally, you would want to use fresh raspberries and juice organic apples, but the snowy weather here is keeping us house bound.
I used organic frozen raspberries from Trader Joes and organic apple juice with a few teaspoons of Spirulina Azteca added in.
It was delicious and invigorating. I can feel all of my cells singing and I am literally experiencing a clarity of mind that is breathtaking! About 15 years ago I did a 30 day fast which was so incredibly liberating for me - mind, body and spirit. After a week, I actually felt like I was 10 years old again. It was a physical memory not a mental one. My limbs moved in ways they had in my youth, I was sprightly and filled with vigor. I laughed a lot and people stopped me on the street to ask me what my secret was. This experience is what is inspiring me now. I am on a mission to be there again, now. I want to bound out of bed in the morning, dance around like a joyful being, see the beauty of the world and everyone in it - clearly and poignantly, and give of myself wholly from the inside out.
This book is my holistic-living bible and is keeping me revved up while I fast: The Sunfood Diet Success System by David Wolfe. I love David Wolfe and his energy is palpable every time he speaks. I am mentally planning for all the amazing raw foods I'll prepare when my fast is complete. Here is another great read to inspire.
Cleanse & Purify Thyself, Book 1 reveals a lot about parasite cleansing and how important this is to overall health. Beware, though, of its graphic nature on what comes out of unhealthy bodies. I learned that no matter how healthy you eat and exercise, etc,. if there are parasites living in your body, you cannot experience optimal health. And surprisingly, according to the author, most Americans have internal parasites. So, I've been taking this Barlean's Organic Oils Olive Leaf Complex for its parasite destroying effects.
And this Rainbow Light Everyday Fiber System to flush the parasites once they are destroyed.
I am determined to vitalize my body on all levels, so that my spiritual understanding will be great.
Rhonda Byrne's book, The Secret: The Power, has confirmed for me the power of happy, positive, high frequency thoughts and I know that a clean body is a pre-requisite for this. When I am clogged with toxins and old food residue, I feel mentally foggy and emotionally drained. And now, on my third day of not eating, my connection with the world around me feels fluid, generous, even awe inspiring. I am loving life today!
