It’s been almost 5 years since I started a lifestyle of drinking a huge home made green juice every morning with my daughter Pia. It completely stopped chronic epilepsy, healed her skin and we have not had to be back in hospital for other neuro issues since the day we started this lifestyle. We eat no fried food (unless she is with her granny or dad) and if one looks in our fridge, it’s packed with berries, fruit and greens that either get juiced or turned into a delicious salad. We do not touch anything processed or from a tin. Some things may seem exaggerated, however, it has been such a tremendous healing experience that I’ve decided that other people’s opinion is not really my business; they have a right to their experiences and opinions. As for me and mine I know what I know and nobody can ever take that from me. But …
I have addictions: sugar, coffee, bread. Bread and wheat in general is a huge evil; they’ve mutated the wheat so badly that it’s making our bodies sick – bloating, difficulty to breath, fatigue, constipation are just some of the side effects. Bread has me in its grip. These addictions have held me back from leaping into the next level of elevated intuition, harmony with nature and people. I still feel alot of fear at times, guilt and doubt and am weak at owning my dreams and making them come true against all odds. Living in a state of none-judgement, no envy, no jealousy, no regret and moving quietly, peacefully forward, razor sharp in awareness is always my goal and what I strive for in my daily walk.
After experiencing so much healing and magic in mine and Pia’s life since being more mindful to pray, speak powerful affirmations over my life and hers and eating as natural as possible, I feel that it’s time to move to the next level and my curious and adventurous spirit is ready. I have read so many credible accounts of how juice cleansing changes the body and mind, how so much dirt is ejected from the body and how one starts to see things you were never aware of and destructive habits are easier to let go of because of enhanced mental clarity. I have decided to live on mostly green juices (basically liquid food) and some fruit juice (for energy because I still have to go to work and lead a “normal” life) for 43 days and document it. This is not new to me, I have gone for a long period of consuming mainly green juices a number of times (green juices are very edifying) and a few years ago, I did a three day dry fast (no water, no food) and it is one of the best experiences but hard. If you are new to this lifestyle, I do recommend easing slowly into a juice cleanse by doing it for just two three days etc. and then gradually increasing the days over time.
Why? I believe and have experienced that excess and the wrong type of foods is an addiction. It changes our faces, our bodies, our thoughts, I believe and have experienced that after eating meat I have nightmares, gain weight, am depressed or tired; I have seen how food addictions make people ill, moody and weary. So I am on an experiment and have started this morning with the following juice for breakfast which I strained to make it nice and smooth:
Two big bunches of fresh coriander, two apples for sweetener, two cucumbers, one very big zucchini, three lemons.
I am looking forward to this experience and I embrace the changes that I hope will come mainly in cleansing and freeing my body of things I put into it that were so disrespectful.
