Conscious Friday: Body, Mind & Soul
I've been on a mission to detox my body from all of the cheese doodles, barbeque potato chips, Doritos and cookies that I've been sneaking a hand full here and a cup cake there. Although I'm adamant about getting raw green smoothies, juices and wheatgrass in my body daily, my taste of junk food had grown into a ferocious appetite for it. How did I get here you ask? Excellent question and of one I can’t answer!
I began cleansing and let me tell you that when anyone fasts and detox, they will not only detox from the foods that have been stored in the colon but they also detox emotionally. Seven days into my cleanse, I felt like a raving lunatic! I was out of control and feeling horrible! I began detoxing so fast that I had to slow the detox process down. Whew! It's been a crazy journey. I'm starting to feel better and I thank God!
So, if you don't already know, when we take on such a big challenge as a major detox process, please understand that the only way for the toxins to leave our bodies is for it to go through the entire digestive system and this process impacts not just our bodies, but our minds and our souls.
It is worth it because I’m striving for optimum health and I so need it. Please have patience with me while I soar through this effort. I feel your support and presence!
Se'Lah at Necessary Room is the brainchild of Conscious Friday.
Happy Conscious Friday!
