congrats on having the strength and willpower--your going to be one of the FEW that we look up to !!!!!!!
Emotioonal detox as i've read in a number of juice fasting sites is one symptom that your body is releasing toxins, changing, cleansing, renewing, and allows your "optimal well being" of who you are to surface.
it can pronounce itself in many ways--i hear alot of people say they feel melancholy, free, relaxed, energized and a better sense of everything around them. i can't remember who was it but one member had crying outbursts for no reason--personally, b/c i tend to believe in the whole metaphysic theories, i believe that the body's cells and energy are the "blueprints" of our lives.
all the life experiences whether emotional, physical, metal etc can be released and i tend to believe that "fasting" to heal the body, does just that. i believe it's the language of our body saying "set me free" everything being gracefully connected again. :)
in awe of you my friend,
WOW!! Thankyou,but that first sentence is underserved. I feel like I have been such a hypocrite, I have known about the vegan lifestyle, then raw for awhile. I had the knowledge in my head and was even sharing a bit...but wasn't putting it into practice, ugh. So I have a long way to go to get some self respect ,trust me. If you're looking up to anything ...it's my height (I'm 5'9) :o
What your describing reminds me of a small book I read a long time ago called, "That toxic fat". It basically said that when we lose weight fat enters the bloodstream and "old" toxins and resurface. This book mostly dealt with physical symptoms, i.e.: someone who has done drugs in the past and is losing weight can have hallucinations/or whatever that drug did...AGAIN!! So I guess it's similar, but with emotions too. ? Hey, now that I think of it , Joopie was talking about smelling things from her past that no one else could smell. Does that mean smell is memorized and brought back too?? This blueprint idea is very interesting....Can you share more on this..or refer a website?
I feel like I am going thru postpartum depression again (I only had it with my first)....it's very odd. Hopefully, it will pass quickly. I've still got 4 more days to go!
Thankyou for the help!!
Oh no no no....that's of the things i am learning, is self talk--were so use to and conditioned to recognize our faults and weaknesses first that we are literally "punishing " our bodies. this one was hard for me.....i used to wake up every morning "ughhh i'm tired and try to wake up."
About a year ago, I started saying "Wow...I can't wait to wake up and start the day." I don't recall at what point but i am not apprehensive to wake up early in the morning anymore unless i have stayed up real late or something........so you deserve to tell yourself, "wow...i did it and i did it well."
i'm such a sucker for how our cells think and act.......gosh, i don't have any specific references that talk about detox symptoms. my thoughts were based on many sites and converstaions with different healers and people in the metaphysics/alternative realm.
back to basics--kinda reminds me of elementary school--PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK.
Your right...positive self talk is good! I still need work on that in this particular area, that's for sure. work in progress...right?!
OK...back to the basics :o
Thanks for the pep talk and insight!!! Sometimes it is hard to see the forest thru the trees or however that saying goes :). My mind is kinda fuzzy right now...
Floating around like a balloon,
I've started pep talk to myself---what are some of the things you say to yourself maybe we can exchange affirmations if you'd like.....
a friend of mine does quantum touch and EFT---so my cheap version is, I say "I love myself and I allow myself to heal." then I talk to the "discrepancies" in my body and tell them--"It is okay...you can leave now."
:eek: talkin in raw crop circles,
