As the days pass during this quiet detox period, I find I have less and less to say. Eliminating all these distractions allows the mind to settle into a calmer state. Ironically many who know a much busier, chattier me are asking me what is wrong. Being so conscious of all this as it’s happening is interesting.
My yo-yo mood swings, bloating, discomfort, and cravings from sugars, carbs, and caffeine have also leveled off now. I am more focused and less distracted in everything I do and accomplish things in a fraction of the time with energy left to spare. How different from that unconscious cycle of enjoying the highs at the expense of suffering through the lows! The change was so gradual I never realized how extreme it was until this reset me to a much more restful state. I feel my body restoring itself. With 7 days left until we head toward the Amazon, I am at peace.
Today’s Ceremony Detox Menu: Frozen strawberry/blueberry/wheatgrass smoothie with a boiled egg for breakfast. Herbal teas and water throughout the day. Pumpkin seeds (filling and full of nutrients) for snack. Steamed veggies and quinoa for lunch. Apple snack. Fish, boiled fresh new potatoes, and steamed broccoli for dinner.
Tonight’s Unplugged Time: Breaking the silence tonight to watch Neal Donald Walsh’s free online class, Living From Your Soul then journal, meditate with my cats, and go to sleep.
Namaste and much love,
Spirit guided me to create this “Countdown to Sacred Plant Medicine Intensive” blog series to help demystify this sacred healing/awakening path while simplifying the dietary preparations by sharing practical ways I am preparing for the Amazon while working and living in a modern society. If something I share sparks your curiosity or interest, please COMMENT BELOW and let’s create a conversation here. I receive no compensation for sharing here but am drawn by my heart to create a safe space and portal of possibility for anyone seeking hope and help to know there are many natural solutions we have not fully explored. Only by searching within and carefully selecting holistic modalities that resonate for us and practitioners who hold their work and healing space sacred can we truly unlock our own amazing journey of possibilities! I am here for you if I can help in any way.
