Every Solstice and Equinox I like to do cleanse. We are coming up on the fall equinox in a couple of weeks and I decided to do a 40 day cleanse this time around. During the time I was sick I ate horribly. I didn’t have any energy for healthy cooking so I ate some of the easy food I picked up for my boy. Yes, I ate cheese and lunch meat. Ugh! I didn’t like it when it was going down but I still ate it because it was . . . . easy. Now that I’m feeling better I want to get back on track and cleanse all the nasty food choices out of my system.
Phase one will include taking sugar out of my diet. I loves me my sugar!! I want to give my self a few days of conscious intuitive eating before I begin phase two. I know my body doesn’t process wheat and dairy very well so I will limit or eliminate those as well. Phase two will be an attempt to replicate the diet we consumed at Summer Solstice this year. Here is a link to see what that looks like. I will talk a bit more about phase two when I get there. I am not emotionally ready for phase two yet.
Walking and doing a yoga kriya every day is also part of the agenda. I will ask my guidance to help me select which kriya is best for that day. It’s no different from how I would go about selecting a set for a class to teach. Yesterday’s set was to help build the immune system. Today’s set was on digestion and elimination. There are many wonderful dvd’s out there to play with. I love anything from Nirvair Singh Khalsa.
Journalling will be part of this experience as well. I want to track my process. This feels different from other cleanses I’ve done. I suspect it will bring me deeper within myself than I’ve gone before. I have felt this internal pull ever since the weather started to get cooler. It feels like its time to focus on the spiritual part of me. I can only do that by going within and listening to the still small voice of my soul. My past illness forced me to slow down and get quiet. I found I rather like it here in the quietness of the self and the stillness of the body. I’ll keep you posted as to my progress. . .
