What a week!!!
Emotions, cord cutting, detoxing, flowing, and releasing. Even though it's November, it has been a great time to let it go. "Out with the old, in with the new". We have been releasing early.
We cut cords this week with people, places, situations, and emotions so we can move on from them and let them go energetically. It does not mean we do not love or care about them anymore. Cord Cutting is a process that severs that negative attachement between you and another person so that the shadow of that relationship does not hang over you or affect you in the present.
Who do we form cords with? There are major and minor cords. Major cords are formed with:
Lovers, spouses (exes and present), children, parents, siblings, close friends, abusers, or any sexual partners.
Minor cords are formed with: clients, teachers, bosses, co-workers, and friends.
You definitely know who you have the most toxic cords with. There is a certain negativity attached to the relationship, no matter how much you love or respect that person.
Tuesday night, we each wrote a list of the people, places, emotions and situations we needed cut. My 1/4 sheet of paper was full. From my x-husband to my family members. My home, that I have so many emotional attachments with, fears of romantic relationships (which I am happy to say that I am almost there) and the list went on.
This was a week of detoxing.
I am proud to say that I did my first ever three-day cleanse!! Many have looked at me and said "Why"?
This cleanse has NOTHING to do with weight loss. In fact, I don't own a scale. Scales drive people CRA CRA!! STOP weighing yourself my friends.
I have been experiencing horrible headaches on my right side for weeks now along with exhaustion. And, it does not have anything to do with getting up early and teaching. I have always been an early bird.
After the Inversion Workshop, I spoke to Maria who is also a Holistic Health Counselor and she told me about a juice cleanse.
I decided to try it thinking that maybe I needed to detox and flush out my system. There are five fresh juices a day for three days. They are YUMMY!! Day 1, EASY. Day 2, hard, Day 3; BRUTAL for me!!!! I felt weak, dizzy, and hallucinating. Thank goodness for a friend that pushed me through and encouraged me not to give up. I didn't. I finished. I am proud and thankful.
Before I spoke to Maria telling her about my experience on day 3, I was saying to myself "How the fuck do people do this"? This is crazy. What a horrible feeling!!! I NEED FOOD!!
Maria told me this was how my body was detoxing. Everyone is different and reacts a different way. It has nothing to do with how much I weigh or how active I am. It was the toxins releasing!!
Most of you know my eating habits. I love food. I eat. All in moderation. I don not deprive myself of anything. But it was time. Time to clean. Time to release.
This cleanse was much needed. Just like the cord cutting meditation.
Today was the first day of food. I ate. I taught three classes, slept for two hours, cooked a healthy dinner and I feel like a million bucks. I have not had a headache since last night.
Don't wait until the New Year to cut cords, detox and release.
