I’ve been hearing so much about all the shifts in the universe these last months. Is this the time for you to shift? What do you need to do to shift? What are you experiencing these days? Is there struggle? Is there drama? Is there something pushing you from behind? How can you use these struggles and difficulties?
Most of you know I am closing my business that I’ve had for 20 years and moving to another state. Big changes, right? I’m ready; I’ve been ready and preparing for quite some time now. A good friend of mine decided a few weeks ago to start eating healthier. What was it that caused her shift? She certainly has heard me talk about adding living foods and decreasing processed foods for many years. So why now? Why is she now reading these blogs I’ve been writing, when I’ve been writing them for over six months? Very simply put. It was her time. Another friend of mine I’ve always felt was struggling with what we’ve been talking about regarding shifts. But the struggle was with me, not just the idea of shifts. She certainly has enough skill and tools to do her work. Today was the first day she actually opened up to what the problem was and why she didn’t exactly “hear” me. She quickly changed the subject, but not before I “heard” what my intuition has been telling me for years. Was this my time? Have I been doing so much clearing of the old, to actually begin to accept the truth?
Let’s go back to my first friend. She started drinking a lot more water, took out soda and her nightly handfuls of jelly beans completely. She added more fruits and fresh veggies and was very conscious about what was coming up for her. She called me after about two days of this and said, “What’s up with the sugar cravings?” I laughed and said, “Ah, you are noticing you have sugar cravings?” That’s a great first step. Noticing. In yoga we say, first acknowledge you have the feeling. But how can you notice it if each time it comes up, you are quickly pushing it down with sugar, processed food and/or alcohol (you know the rest)? She’s now been walking this new lifestyle for a few weeks. Today her phone call was, “What’s up with the nausea?” Yep, something else to notice. Toxins build up in the body. They build up from past emotional struggle and from past food that has not been “digested”. And toxins are toxic! The more we accumulate, the harder it is to get rid of. It builds up and backs up. So now, my friend, ”Are you also having some really good bowel movements?” Oh yeah. Now you are helping to get rid of those toxins.
Ok, so what can I do about these things? Nux vomica, the homeopathic alternative for nausea, comes in those little blue vials filled with little white pellets. You usually disolve 5 pellets under your tongue, three times a day. You can always find something for whatever you are experiencing in the Boiron aisle. The bowel movements, I’m afraid, not as easy to ease. It has to happen. Stay close to a bathroom and just know that this too shall pass (pun intended)! Length of time? Varies for everyone, depending on how much is in there and how much of a transition you are going for. If you have been a standard american diet (SAD) eater, then I suggest going to vegetarian food for a bit. Adding in more and more raw and fresh fruits and veggies. Read, read and read some more. Find a group or person in your area that have some experience with living food and detox. Drink, and drink some more green smoothies! Add the high water content veggies like, cucumber and celery to your diet. My friend didn’t go completely raw. She did what she felt comfortable with. It was her time.
Louise Hay has some great things to say about nausea….Fear, rejecting and idea or experience. Your mantra? “I am safe. I trust the process of life to bring only good to me.”
I’ve been doing a lot of tapping. Have you checked into that yet? Sure, I have my bad days. My cat got sick again, my brother lost his job this week and I could add more about my life, but the good news is….I feel great! It’s my time. Is this your time?
