Better Late Than Never… And Better Than Ever…
It is 10 pm on March 10, 2014 and I have to be up and off to the airport by 4am. Yikes!
So, I will do this quickly and update you on all the happenings around the Studio since the end of the juicing week.
First of all, a lot of people wonder when you do a juice only week, if it is all about weight. No, at least this wasn’t at all what it was about for me. Weight had nothing to do with it even though at the end of the day there was some shifting there.
Let me back up and give you a bit of history.I have never been very big, and have always been able to eat pretty much whatever I wanted.I have a sweet tooth and love carbs – particularly bread.So to be able to indulge and not gain an ounce is pretty darn nice.Until I hit around 55 years of age.Then, slowly I did start gaining weight and added about 20 pounds over the five years.
More importantly than that though, was the way I felt. Lots of body aches, fatigue, moments when I was depressed, edginess and short temper, and at times, sever breathing issues. I wasn’t happy but something kept niggling in the back of my mind that I could fix all this. I could get back the metabolism I once had, and I thought the best place to start was right at the source, my food and my body.
Long and short – if you followed earlier blogs, you also know I was intrigued as to the effects of clean eating on my spiritual work. Huge positive impact, and that happened just by eliminating the seven foods JJ Virgin suggest might be toxic to your body. Corn, gluten, dairy, soy, sugar, nuts, and eggs. With amazing results, I felt that doing a week of juicing could only help – especially knowing I was going to be taking on some powerful nutrition and literally no toxins.
The offshoot is nothing short of miraculous and I realize now that miracles are up to us, created by us to be enjoyed by us.
I first began to enjoy health like I hadn’t in years. That was after the crabby detox part on day three – but I slept better, had no pain, breathed evenly all the time, had no sinus issues, was emotionally calm and happy and mentally focused and alert. I was energized and began a wonderful workout routine that I look forward to every day. And, when my pants were a bit loose, I weighed myself for the first time to discover I had also released 10 pounds. Cool.
Then I went to visit my beautiful sons their families for a Saturday and I ate more food than I have eaten in the past month. I enjoyed Eggs Benedict with Brie and bacon, hash browns and a pile of fruit with coffee. I dined on pizza for dinner, more coffee. And I never gained an ounce; in fact I released another pound. Slowly I have added some of the seven foods back into my meal plan, and gluten is the one I will never be on good terms with. But I know it now and when I do indulge, I anticipate there might be a reaction – Intolerances are like that. I also added cheese and eggs, they are fine.
Now about the spiritual part of this. I have been elevating my work to a higher level – a level where I really could use a bit of guidance and a good teacher. But I didn’t know whom to turn to. Then, after planning a trip to Sedona, and booking the Hotels I learned Esther Hicks and Abraham were going to be there at the same time doing a workshop. Not just there but – at the same Hotel where I was booked!!!. You notice I post a lot of Abraham quotes on the Sharyn Rose Face Book page? I love their work, and consider them my number one mentor. Coincidence? I think not.
Miracles and miraculous events are up to us, created by us and to be enjoyed by us. I did that – I created that by being clear and focused, happy and healthy and taking care of my body, mind and spirit. If I can do it – so can you. With love and…
Until next time… Namaste from Sharyn
