FINALLY the snow has melted and Jack frost has gone to play somehwere else for now...! YAE!!!
The sun is SHINING and SO AM I!
I am drinking my Maple water cut with Dandelion and organic greens- I LOVE this drink sooooo much and know my days with it are numbered as the Maple sap will be running only a few more days now...how blessed I have been to enjoy it this year, especially coinciding with my JFeast.
Incorporating SOLID FOOD back into my life after 33 days of juicing, has been tricky and WONDERFUL.
I AM learning to tune into this body, and sense what and when I need to eat. AND perhaps the most challenging part- HOW MUCH! I tend to eat in a trance, like I'm meditating- I find chewing and eating sooooo relaxing and pleasurable. This whole dance IS actually getting smoother and I seem to be experiencing more grace and flow.
I feel like there is always with me a SPACE, a GAP between wanting/intending something, and then manifesting/achieving IT...but, IT DOES EVENTUALLY HAPPEN.
Perhaps I am a slow learner- I was told I am a late-bloomer- it has been about 7 years of being high raw to let go of over-eating and refined sweets, and although I would rarely indulge I STILL HAVE WANTED PIZZA, etc over the years- and even if I would abstain through sheer will, I WOULD STILL CRAVE IT!
Doing this Jfeast seems to have released this pressure...I feel more peaceful around food, and less addicted. And whenever I have decided to 'cheat' and enjoy a long-cherished fave, it actually doesn't taste as good as it used to and I end up spitting it out knowing I am finally DONE with that food- not just physically but metally/emotionally/psycholocially/spiritually...the desire is no longer there!
As a early raw-fooder I recall Avocado and Victoria Boutenko saying this would happen over time- and I sooooo badly WANTED TO BELIEVE THAT- BUT DIDN'T!!! I was sure because I had never smoked or drank or used that my addiction to food was tooooo strong and I would never really be FREE.
Now I know it to be the truth, and I am deeply grateful that I won't have to use super-human discipline all my life- what a relief! THANK YOU GOD!!!
I am less concerned with how long it takes as long as I have FAITH that I am on the path.
I also feel more harmonious about myself and my family indulging in certain 'treats' instead of being so militant and uptight, I find myself feeling very joyous and accepting- BLISSED instead of PISSED- and just GRATEFUL for the experience if I CHOOSE or they CHOOSE it. again, the key seems to be in the amount at this point...
I just feel enveloped by peace and love and an alrightness. I told Luke the other night 'I feel happier lately than I have ever felt in my life..." It was a revelation.
Blissings to us ALL! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
