I like Day 3 of my raw food detox.
I feel awesome!!! Like Superhuman awesome.
My mind is so clear today, my spirit feels elevated and really tapped in, my energy is through the roof and I feel like I'm going to orgasm all day. I feel that good.
The client session I had today was so deeply powerful and moving that the energy I passed to her had her in a joyful daze of deep compassion and radical inspiration. It was amazing to feel so super charged and joyful!
If this is where things are going, I'm toooootally down with that.
I didn't know that Day 1 of my raw food detox was going to be Day 1. I was happy when the day began. There was no pressure, I thought I'd eat the raw foods and decide if I liked how I was feeling each step of the way. If I liked it I would continue eating raw.
I felt so good all day, I just kept going with it!
Then around 5pm, my brain got really fuzzy, old feelings of guilt and shame from my childhood creeped in, and before I knew it I was angry at my 14 yr old. She was totally innocent in the entire thing. By 6pm I had alienated both my daughter and my husband from my harsh words.
Red Alert! Red Alert! Unreasonable angry mom is marching around!!
My husband helped me to see what was going on because I was so mad I couldn't stop to think rationally at all (thank you awesome husband). So I isolated myself until I could calm down and used my methods of mediation, prayer, mantras, and in the end it was letter writing that cleared it all up. By 7pm I had apologized and resolved things with my family, so much so, the next 2 hours we played the board game Dungeons (love this game!), and laughed and had a good time.
They weren't lying about emotions surfacing through this detox, and this experience made me realize I've got to take this seriously. My goal is to heighten my awareness to honor my feelings right away by giving them a voice, privately, away from innocent bystanders.
This became Day 1 of the detox because the random irrational anger told me that my liver has things to detox, and I want a happy liver. Day 1 it is.
Yesterday, I began an all raw foods 28 day cleanse. It took me 4 years to begin.
You see, I didn't know if I could do it. Can I really deal without my chips, protein, and chocolate?
But today when I really wanted chips, while I watched Modern Family, I grabbed grapes and celery instead. I was surprisingly satisfied, and there was no sluggish hangover.
My knew motto: Let the magic in.
Which means to me, I know my authentic self is living a very active, whole foods lifestyle that can heal my body, but it's a type of challenge to release to this fully. If I accept the challenge and eat the way my body needs to heal, it will be totally worth it, and in the end I will gain a deeper level of confidence in what I can do.
Letting the Magic in = Living a Magical Life, and I'd really like to do that.
This is the message I keep hearing my intuition tell me this week. You are enough. You are enough. You are enough. You are enough. You are enough.
I Am Enough Even When...
I'm tired and have nothing left to give...You Are Enough
I'm cranky and have nothing nice to say...You Are Enough
I'm uninspired and have no helpful words...You Are Enough
Our lives move in cycles, some days I'm on fire with energy, productivity, and inspiration, and some days I sit in silence. But now I'm learning to appreciate that my silent days are days filled with great productivity, too. There are days where I am repairing internally, and I don't know what the repair work is about until later. But something good always comes from honoring what I need.
You Are Enough.
Our Guardian Angels are in Bliss when they think of us. Isn't that how you feel about your child? Blissful gratitude? No one on the planet feels as devoted, blissful, and adoring as you do toward your child. Please know that you have Guardian Angels that feel this way about you, total bliss. And They say...You Are Enough.
There is no judgement coming from them.
You Are Enough.
They are at peace with who you are. They guide you to make choices that will help you to feel happier, sometimes we take their advice and sometimes we don't. Isn't our child the same way? We understand and support our child with their learning curve of taking good advice. Don't we deserve to give ourselves the same sort of grace and acceptance for where we are?
You Are Enough.
When I embrace that I am enough, the world is shiner to me, I'm happier, I'm free, I'm restored, I'm at peace. And then even on slower, restful, internal repairing days, I can feel peace and joy and appreciation for self, because I am enough.
You Are Enough.

Did your day just get ransacked by stress? Here are two steps to to hep you Easily Relax in any situation by using Transition Tricks and Quick Body Talk.
The last 24 hours have reminded me that sometimes my scheduled zen meditation plan get’s chucked out the window when emergencies pop up. And today, that is exactly what happened to me when my freaky Mother Bear mode came out while helping my oldest daughter find holistic medical care hundreds of miles away from me. Eeeek!!! Once I knew my daughter was in good hands, I realized 3 hours had passed by and I needed to find a way to transition out of my Freaky Side and calm down.
Sometimes I need some help transitioning into a state where I can meditate. So, I went to my bag of transitions tricks.
I love living in California, and went to my backyard and hugged a tree, while I stood barefoot in the grass, and then I laid down on my yoga mat in the morning sun light, listened to the birds, felt the soft breeze on my face, and gave thanks to the Universe for providing all that I ever need. As I began doing these things, calm washed over me and stress receded. As I melted into a more peaceful state, I knew I was now ready to practice my meditation. Even though all of this was very brief, due to my schedule change, it was still very powerful and fully transformed me.
What about you? Do you have any transition tricks?
No, but you want them? Here is a starter list of things to try.
The objective is to experiment with a lot of things so you can find what instantly calms you.
Side Note: Do you need to worry about Sarah now that she is discussing tree hugging? What is all this tree hugging about? That’s weird.
Yes, it is weird, I wholeheartedly agree with you. But, it works. There is something innate about our connecting with nature. We are from nature, and are biologically connected to nature, so our vibrations align with nature and are instantly raised by being in nature. Haven’t you noticed how good you feel after a day at the beach, camping, time at the park, on a bike ride, hiking or walking the dog? It’s because you are outside, you are connecting with nature and raising your physical vibrations as a result.
Quick Body Talk
This is an uber important point here. Because your body self (ego) is helping you, she is giving you what you need through your emotions and uses physical symptoms to talk to you. By loving your self, and all it's feelings and symptoms, you will be able to release your feelings and symptoms and move onto the state you are desiring.
A Conversation with Your Body
You can do this in your head (no one will ever know) or speak it aloud.
It’s okay if you have to repeat this a few times, sometimes there are several layers of messages, and I find that 95% of the time this works for me. But this is not a replacement for medical help if you need it. So take care and do what you need to do.
Within minutes, the Transition Tricks will bring you back to a calmer reality, and you will find great relief when you use the How to Talk Yourself off the Ledge technique. You will find that you will learn to rapidly shift from total bonkers stressed out freaky side, to zen happy girl super fast, and that it can be easy and even fun, anywhere and at anytime. It's so magical.
Allow yourself the peace of mind and appreciation that you deserve. You are loved. You are cherished. You are admired by the Universe above. They are totally cool with you, as you are, so any work you do to move yourself into a relaxed and more peaceful state is like a cherry on the top of a sundae.
Release those worries, and allow the Universe to give you a big relaxed warm hug.
