Welcome to my last blog about my experience with the 28 Day Simply Raw Detox Program. www.simplyraw.ca As I reflect back on the initial reasons for commencing the detox, I think of things like better skin, lose the winter adipose layer and clarity of thought. I am comfortable with this list; this list is nice, pleasant and well, lets be honest, pretty damnb fluffy! So yes, I was into giving the detoxification program a try because I expected a pleasant journey with positive experiences each and every day, however back in the real world my detoxification experience was anything but fluffy! I was blessed with the extrodinary experience of what I call ’getting real’. Initially I was cruising through the days with effortless ease, happy, healthy, glowing and fulfilling the initial list of buffing up my outside. I was thinking, “gees this is a walk in the park; this is the nicest thing anyone could ever do for themselves, what a treat”, then whamm…. we were hit with a big run of grey skies and my mood sunk into the mud of my burried quagmire of un-addressed, supressed and festering emotional wounds.
In my life my overall state of emotion has been happy. Actually, upon reflection I have had one of the most exciting and blessed lives that I have heard of. I have been manifesting most of my desires since the age of 21 however that doesn’t mean that I don’t have disappointments or insecurities, and upsets do occur in my life just like everyone else. During the detox “I got real”! I discovered that I had spent so much time focussing on being happy, prodctive, grateful, pleasant, supportive, inspired and peaceful that I forgot to acknowledge and address my shadow side. I buried the shadows (my insecurities and upsets) in a continual life of motion. No time to focus on being slighted, no time to stop and address mistreatment, I just had to keep marching forward with a smile because nothing could stop me and I didn’t let the little things on life falter my mad dash toward…. hmmmm what is it that I am dashing too? Great question! During the detox, I stopped and pondered this and other questions at length; questions like what am I doing, what is my purpose and where am I going? At my age, you would expect that I had asked these questions previously, but no… I’ve been too busy dashing from this project to that, from this location to that…. I am in constant motion. Okay, so I stopped and got real, then I got mad… I dredged up all sorts of mistreatments ” how dare the previous owners of our home forget to disclose $100 000.00 worth of issues” ”how dare the home inspectors not be liable to tell the home buyer anything more in-depth than be sure to calk your windows.” ”how dare Dave’s ex-wife send hate mail to me via her child” I compiled a huge stack of incidents that in my opinion where wrong doings. I got angry, I felt every little bit of pissed-off-ness that I had always shyed away from because I didn’t want display my inner bitch, I wanted to be spiritual and I wanted to send love to all of the complete assholes that have crossed my path. I didn’t want to acknowledge that my husband and I are like a red flag to bill padders, squatters and leeches etc… Dave and I work so hard and give so much, I didn’t understand why karmatically speaking we had been dealt what I consider dead weight. I felt sorry for myself and exhausted by the number of people Dave and I were supporting and giving to.
Natasha was also letting me know about some really cool programs she is releasing. I am not sure if she has made these public as of yet… so friend Natasha (https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-SimplyRaw-Living-Foods-Detox-Manual/119809099051) on Facebook… send her a big, cleansing green smoothie hello from me. I am signing off from my detox blog a changed person. I am lighter emotionally, clearer mentally, stronger physically and spiritually at peace. Now if that isn’t an endorsement then I don’t know what is…
Much love to Natasha and Mark of Simply Raw.
