This morning there was a choir of many birds, waking up my daughter and me. As I went to bed quite early, I didn't have a problem waking up to the early (and dark) hour of 6am. In fact, today somehow feels big and important.
I woke up feeling really good. There is no way to explain to you, how excited I feel about my green smoothie which I will prepare later on today, for my second day of easing out, after completing the 10 day Master Cleanse. There is also much excitement about the tasty pumpkin soup, which I froze after my ease in.
I love eating. Coming from Europe, I celebrate eating and the social aspect of it. Eating is a journey through many cultures and a way to explore the world, without needing to leave your home. The reset of my master cleanse, will cross the bridge into a eating pattern where I eat more consciously again. Chewing my food properly and experiencing the flavour of each ingredient. I call it tantric eating :).
Yesterday, I wasn't in the best place to blog, as I was feeling tired. I managed to drink a fair amount of freshly pressed grapefruit and orange juice with maple syrup. I also started taking my probiotics, which is an important step, as many of your good bacteria can be flushed out, during the cleanse. Good gut bacteria is necessary for healthy digestion and to prevent many diseases. I also admit to having nibbled on a couple of cashews... Not the smartest thing, since you are meant to ease in slowly.... So I backed off on them and went back to drinking juice....
Right now I'm laying in my cosy and warm bed. My beautiful daughter is next to me and my cat Caesar is warming my legs. There is rain gushing down and cleansing the earth. Whilst yesterday felt sort of "empty" today I can feel spirit again. There is more of a connection and a sense of purpose in the aura surrounding this day.
Some domestic duties of cleaning the house and getting it back in order, are on my to do list today. I'm also hoping to tackle some gardening this week and involve my daughter in all of the tasks.
This is a big time for change, to become the best "you" you can be. The natural flow and planetary alignments all assist us in this transformative time. If we resist the changes that want to occur naturally, there will be a feeling of stagnation and depression instead. Feel more think less, give your heart a chance to sing before your head gets in the way.
Wishing you all a happy weekend xoxox
