Shabbat is just about here and I actually have some time left to write a new post, that is just so nice! A few things have come up or become more clear to me since yesterdays post. First off I must say Luciano was incredible! “Jah Jah, sweep over my soul, when the road in life gets rough, Jah Jah sweep over my soul.” Lyrics of the inspired and masterful Reggae great – Luciano. His lyrics, performance, vibrations truly uplifted my consciousness, and inspired within me a deepening of that root connection to the Creator essence of all that is. The night was truly a Prayer, a Blessing, Love, Light and such deep and true Wisdom! I am so thankful and grateful! His voice is sweeter live than I’ve ever heard on c.d. and that is truly a testament to not only his gifted talent, but to the love and truth he conveys with his song. Blessed Love!
In regards to the thoughts I was speaking of yesterday on hunger and not feeling as emotional or discombobulated by it, I’ve come to think that that has become a little dangerous. Why? Because I haven’t been drinking all the juice I should be for the required caloric daily intake. It seems 3 Quarts has been a steady amount. Not because I am not hungry (sometimes it is), more because I just get caught up and don’t feel moved by the feeling of hunger. So thus far, today I have had 3 quarts and will definitely complete the 4th before the night is through. I will now make it imperative whether I wake up early or not to drink all 4 quarts – we’ll see, I have a feeling I may not only feel better but begin to lose some of my excess weight more rapidly (Metabolism is boosted with more calories and slowed by less, also the body stores fat if it feels it isn’t being supplied it’s basic needs). I’ll mention what the outcome is on that level next Friday when I do my weekly weigh in.
I had mentioned it a few days ago, but it is bright as day that simplicity is key for me in regards to the juices I make. One of my favorite juices came from Cafe Gratitude and is called “I am Healthy”. It is a combination of Kale, Celery, Cucumber, and Lemon – I always enjoyed it with some apple juice, so that is one of my staples now. Otherwise we like Romaine, Carrots with the tops, and parsley. Yup keepin’ it really simple for now.
Not much more to comment on today. I do want to leave you with something called “Affirmations for Digestive Health”. It is a compilation of excerpts from Louise L. Hay that my colon hydrotherapist put together. I found it really powerful and inspiring, I’ve been meaning to share it so here it is.
