I’m Loving 100% Raw!
Here I am on the fourth day of my 100% raw vegan journey and so many wonderful and healing experiences continue to surface and abound. I began feeling more clear headed, more vitality almost immediately. By Tuesday morning I was elated and floated to work in a raw food high, until I did some meditation and my first chunk of emotional healing surfaced.
I have spent the last couple of days sitting with the heaviness of this emotional release on my chest. It is a healthy heaviness, much like when you are running away from something you know you will eventually need to face, and so even though I am heavy, I am no longer running. I am standing in the moment and feeling the huge wave of emotion crash down on me and realizing that it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I mean to be honest, I would much rather be in the bliss state I was in on Tuesday morning, obviously. But I do feel like Im moving through some big stuff here and its normal to feel this way when clearing years upon years of emotions stuck in my cellular tissue.
This emotional block has been there in my mind for quite some time, I have been spending all kinds of energy trying to avoid it. It was sort of like this huge dark alley that I kept trying to go around and now that I have decided to walk down it, its pretty overwhelming and draining but not the same type of draining as it was to avoid it.
The reason I begin with this as my first post for my cleanse is because I think its important to know that when you set an intention to live the most vibrantly healthy loving guided abundant life – anything that does not resonate at that level will show up right in front of you and line up so you may deal with each issue, relationship, job, friend etc. until there is no longer anything in between you and your highest desires for yourself.
Let me be clear about this point. No one is keeping you from your joy, rather it is the distraction that those unhealed issues create that is keeping you from fully feeling vibrant. Everyone, and I mean Everyone has stuff or has had stuff in the past. That’s what life is. Hiding from it is pointless and exhausting. Instead take one step right into the perceived tornado and see where it takes you. Don’t go unconscious simply because its painful, feel it embrace it, express it, this is how you move through it instead of staying stuck in it.
OK so now for the yummy part, I want to share with you what I have been eating because its seriously the most amazingly vibrant healthy yummy pretty foods Ive ever eaten, and I am making it all from scratch, and loosing weight! Me! I have found yummy recipes from my coach (www.Pamsterling.com) and then branched out and found all sorts of blogs and sites with amazingly delicious foods that make me feel like I’m being decadent. Take a look:
I am really enjoying all the great things that are happening physically as well. My kiddos are still sick but I have more energy than I did before so I am better able to help them. I have lost about 4 pounds, water weight Im sure, but I feel less puffy which is always good.
I am really excited about the meals I am making in the next few days including Raw Nachos, Blueberry Torte, and possibly a chocolate creme!!!!! I cant wait to make, eat and share with you!
Also, beginning today I am adding in exercise. I am feeling like I am rounding a hurdle with being use to eating raw, and so its time to assist my body in cleansing by moving those muscles! I am thinking about some Bikram Yoga, Jogging, and major stretching. I have found that at night I can literally feel my entire body buzzing. Last night I took a bath which helped a bit but if I really want to be healthy, I must exercise – its impossible to feel vibrant and not get some movement in those muscles.
