The 14 Days Water Fast Blew My Mind…

May 9, 2022

(And emotional eating breakthrough)

I ended the water fast on day 14… and the whole entire thing was completely different than I imagined.

After the breakthrough I had, I knew this was why I felt called to the fast and I knew it was complete.

The awakening I had was vastly different than I thought! I thought the fast would bring me closer to the Source; would clear the noise and allow me to hear and grow spiritually.

What happened wasn’t that at all… but it was an extraordinarily beautiful gift.

Somewhere along the way, I became angry at the food companies in this country for all the toxic waste they put in our food.

I noticed the obesity. The unwellness. The suffering.

I became angry at the way we do medicine. How we use pills rather than changing the way we take care of ourselves.
Our country produces sick and unhappy humans by the droves.

I felt sad and angry about this.
I saw how emotional eating is the NORM.
It’s just how we cope.

And I saw how desperately I wanted to heal my own deeper emotional eating habit.

I was bulimic for 21 years and occasionally it still reared its ugly head.
I still got antsy at 4pm and went for the Tostitos.
I still drank wine when I wanted to feel vacation vibes when home with the kids.
I still ate more than my body needed.
I still reached for the chocolate when I needed to feel loved.

And I didn’t have any idea how deeply this ran.
I didn’t realize that I had begun to believe I could never truly heal it fully.

I hadn’t acknowledged this fear… It was deeper than I could feel in my day to day.

I could see how Source had guided me here to heal this.
I felt it all.
The people I love killing themselves slowly with food.
My sadness.
My anger.
And I healed, bit by bit.

I saw how even still I had made food confusing for myself!
All things I had thought I was over.

Want to be vegan for Spiritual reasons.
Metabolism type says to eat high protein and fats.
My body has run its best with some meat added.
Mung bean soup cleanse was epic and healing and had tons of carbs.

LOL. It was still there.
This old confused emotional food energy.

And I got to tell myself a clear truth and clean it up.
All of it.

I have wanted to get back in incredible shape for a long time.
I’ve wanted to be an athlete again.
I’ve wanted to run again.
Of course I want to go deeper spiritually but eating meat doesn’t stop me from doing that. Just choose very clean sources where the animals are treated kindly.

So I finally gave myself what I want.
I’ve cleaned it up.
I feel certain.
I feel honest with myself.
I feel excited and strong.

What I didn’t see coming was deep truths and longings being uncovered… and awakening about how trained our whole society is to eat horrible foods that destroy our bodies and joy.

I felt the permission to let this really matter in my life.
To enjoy every moment of walking this out.
To choose what I know fuels my body best and release the rule that I needed to eat a certain way to connect deeper with the Source.

I went through 3 years of crazy to learn how to be in my feminine and find a healthy, loving Soulmate.

This disordered eating started when I was 14. To be a woman who comes from all the trauma and abuse I come from to actually be a woman in a healthy loving relationship and have a loving relationship with food feels almost too good to be true. This includes alcohol, tv, and other numbing ways. All of it.

I profoundly enjoy nature more than tv now. I don’t have to force myself.
I can effortlessly not eat simply because of my appetite and choose foods in alignment when I am hungry.

I said to my coach about a month ago… “I know that it’s possible to live life without anxiety and numbing. I KNOW IT.”

Little did I know that’s exactly where Source would take me.

My Conversation with Thich Nhat Hanh

What?! You mean… compassion for others includes the woman lying and hurting the man I love? It includes compassion for her?
That’s easy for you to say.
You don’t have a wife or kids that you love like I love them.
What’s that you say?
That’s how you love EVERYTHING? All humans? All animals and sentient beings?

Not My Place To Get Someone To See the “Truth”…

For as long as I can remember I have always felt responsible for helping others see the things that they cannot see… the boyfriend on drugs, the way they are being taken advantage of, the abuse happening…
I have always suffered deeply to see anyone else suffering ESPECIALLY when I can see a way for their suffering to end!
This is what drove me so hard to break out of all of the abuse I was experiencing, go to school for 10 years while working and being a single mother with almost zero child support, start my business and make my first Mill in 2 years… THAT is a lot of drive, and it ALL came from MY WANTING TO END OTHERS SUFFERING.

What I Resist, I Empower

I see this belief lately that “standing for a world where race & religion do not matter is naive.”
(And abusive)
It’s popped up a number of times in my feed and then once now in my own life.
”It’s exclusive and doesn’t account for all the biases happening today. Anyone who believes this only believes it because they don’t get it. They aren’t the ones experiencing the racism, sexism or etc.”
I understand the basis of this.

Someone Told Me “You are not as enlightened as you think you are.”

And I wondered what that meant? What an unusual statement?
I realized that there’s a whole entire culture referred to as “woke” which couldn’t possibly believe more differently than my mentors who are considered “enlightened”. Which was she referring to?
And I chuckled.
I’m definitely not either…
Talk about a wild time to exist looking to find your way to a life full of joy and peace!

Meditation Breakthrough

New one hour meditations….
I’m beginning to see what’s underneath all the crap….
I’m wildly resisting the reality of what’s happening to people and animals in the world… It feels like it cracks my brain and will burry me to accept it.

I Was Being A Hypocrite

Sometimes we expect people to handle things even better than we are capable of handling them simply because society would agree that’s how it should be handled.
But that’s still hypocrisy…
Just because we can make the best argument for that being how it should have been handled… (womennnnnn lol)
