Yessssss! Can you feel the surge to move, to start, to get going? Even though it is still a bit chilly here in the Northeast, the power of the inner earth energy is calling us to get gently start to expand. Our bodies feel the need to get in shape, move more, shift to lighter foods and inspired action to clear up about us. Getting rid of old and making a new order for the rebirth season.
I inspire you to do some sort of cleanse!! It is so easy to clear our houses, order about us but the body deva too needs to be cleared. It rejuices all our systems getting the sludge out. Like a power wash so all is sparkly and clean like a tune up for the more active season. All religions have observed this pre-spring rejuvenation. It is natural for us to want to clean our vessel for new growth and expansion.
There are so many options these days. Many companies have great nutritional lines that support clearing through eating just one type of food, as vegetables and allowing parts of the digestive system to rest. When it rests, it detoxes and cleans up that area. Or some do fruits an vegetables, others water, cayenne pepper and maple system (Master Cleanse) or you could do real food with tasty smoothies. Any way that gets you taking a break from normal and allowing your body time to get rid of stuff within. When your digestion doesn't have to work full gear, it renews its parts like magic making it more efficient and effective. Pick one way, do for a day, week, month, whatever works. We all are different.
You get the opportunity to watch, observe your relationship to food. When and why you want certain foods, how your body has patterns and also balancing desires. Often cravings are it's way to want to heal itself. Emotional eating is a thing we all do and a cleanse allows you to see how that all works. It strengthens your system for you to avoid here and there. Not in a bad way but in a good way that says, I am in charge of my body, it doesn't run me with it's cravings. I find it very enlightening every season I do it.
You will find more energy at the end, more lean body weight and a renewal on all levels. You also have prepared your body for fresh greens of spring. They are harder to digest so get that engine ready for the healing fresh foods rather than slow cooked foods of winter. If at first you feel crappy, know that is normal. As we detox our body, emotions, old thoughts, crap comes out to be cleared. You may ache and feel sick. or moody as the detox runs its course. It only makes sense that if you are physically moving out toxins, it will effect your moods, emotions and thinking. Just go with it for at the end, you will feel grand.
Food will taste better and the delights you put aside for the moment will be richer and have greater texture. Your body will be stronger for greater movement, have less excess weight and all will seem sparkly. Just like that fresh feel of the house after a spring purge. It is more powerful though for it is your sacred vehicle that moves you through the world so it is energized beyond any other space you could clear.
I know you all will clear the closets, yard, bedrooms, possibly paint or shift about furniture. These are all great changes inspired by spring energy. I want you to consider your body being and work there. It is ancient health that has supported humans as long as they have been on earth. It is a natural instinct and desire of our body so flow into it. Your emotions could use a clean up and same with your thinking. Expansion can only occur where there is new space and openness for new ways. You have to clear for that to occur or you are just stuffed to the gills.
I am doing one this year with real food. I normally to the 11 day Standard Process Cleanse which I love. However, I like to try different things and we have a 5 week class at the Room called the Restart Cleanse. I also am increasing my movement a bit with Sensual Dance. I will be teaching a Monday evening class in March to get my body back to it's beautiful grace of the warmer months. You can join me in this spring rejuvenation and rebirth of body!
The Law of Sacrifice it is called. I have a chapter in my book that discusses the power of this release and renew practice. Many think this is a hard law but I see it as magic. You don't have to sacrifice things that you love or that are inspiring. You can sacrifice the old, outworn, detrimental things that no longer serve. Giving up is giving up. So give up the things that you don't like or need so new things of finer nature can be brought into you. All levels are seeking a clean and clear! Do use the spring vibe to support you in this. The energy and instinct is there, you just direct it into your highest good and becoming. Nothing hard about it. Just ride the wave of emerging energy and........
Make love to your life!
