Hi my dear ones,
So it's sunday night, I just wrapped shooting for the evening (workin' on a wellness series for the DVD extras) and me and the hubby are winding down, kicking back and checking in. Perfect time to peel away and visit with you! I know I said I'd blog about colonics and then soy, and I promise I will, but I want to circle back and chat about the importance of transition and reality - not perfection.
For many of you this is all new stuff, it certainly was for me when I first started. The shit hit my personal fan and I dove so deep that my life went into a full tilt boogie tail spin. I had no idea that change takes time and that a roaring river ain't gonna stand for pushin'.
If you want to be successful ya gotta have a big ole chat with yourself - a come to Jesus, Buddha, Elvis. This DETOX isn't a short term fling with a stingy uptight lover. I don't want you to mourn and crave and wonder when all this deprivation BS will be "put-a-fork-in-it" done. If you really want to win and glow you gotta take it in stride. You have to patient and bite off just what you can chew in that moment. Vegan? Veggie? Carnivore? Omnivore? Where are YOU on the chart? It's ok. Be honest, no need for zero to 60! this is about upgrading your life not ruining it. If you want to climb the mountain you have to train. You can't go straight to the olympics and expect to receive gold!
I get anywhere from 50-100 emails everyday and most folks need something big asap. They assume that I have all the answers and that I am a perfect flawless angel. Nope. I struggle just like you do. I may know a heck of a lot but it doesn't mean that I've mastered it all. Yes I can blow your mind and tell you how to vibrate in a way you've never experienced, but one step at a time. Most of us would fall flat on our faces and release toxins so fast that we'd back up the system with trapped debris and kicked-up poisons.
With my recent success some funny things have happened. I go to restaurants and people recognize me. They watch me like a hawk. People cry and hug me as if I've got the granola stigmata and my nail clippings will heal them. That ain't me folks.
I see many teachers or people in my position preach and spank and scold. Then they hit the ho ho's and dive head first into martini's and marrow. As we used to say in nutrition class, "the bigger the front, the bigger the back". The pix of me above illustrates a sunday morning, pre-work cup o' Joe fest. That's right, COFFEE (in my oprah mug). I don't do it often, once or twice a month at most. It's an acid bath, a pH shit storm and I enjoyed every sip. After I drank the yummy sin I waited about a half hour, had my green drink and got right back on track. But I wanted to be honest. I'm working on health just like you. So let's all relax and have some faith and fun. We're gonna get there, some faster than others but when we arrive our friends will welcome us.
Soy? Green tea? Meat? DAIRY? Mercury filings? Panic, Fear, doubt....dis-ease. The stress of it all can be just as acidic as a hunk of no no. If you're reading this blog on a weekly basis you're committed to change and you're on the path. Give yourself a break. Our goal is healthy cells and we're going to do our best to put one foot in front of the other in order to break our patterns of domestication.
You are on the train. Some days you are the conductor, other days you hang on to the caboose. But guess what? We're all on the 5:08 and by God we're moving forward.
Pretty soon we're gonna step away from food for a bit and dive into spirit because you can't separate body and mind, they are one. I have seen people with perfect health, not a drop of cancer, complain, whine and cry over the smallest "mess ups" in their diets. When I was macrobiotic and training to be a counselor I saw folks crumble over measuring their miso wrong. That's no way to live. Life is sweet. Don't toss your confidence into the cosmic dumpster.
Do you get why I posted this tonight? I want you all to enjoy the process of waking up to health. Don't get mad or sad or scared if you haven't figured it all out yesterday. It's a toxic world, the further you dig the more outraged you'll become. Our system is broken and so are most of the tools we've been given to navigate it. Oh, well, we'll triumph anyway.
Find your bliss and your joy, know that you are a white light disco with no ceilings and no limitations.
Peace, veggies and a momentary splash of coffee! DOH!!!! BAD!!!!!! giggles....
