I’m on day five of a cleanse and detox. My body is feeling the withdrawals big time. Last night the headaches were intense. I am reminded of this beautiful machine I get to inhabit and call home.
The soul can heal and so can the body. We consist of mind, body and spirit. The last few years I’ve not been kind to the body part. I’ve worked extensively on the other two. Now it’s time to align all three. But, boy oh boy, this shit isn’t for sissies!
Ugh the patience I must retrieve just to be with me during this time. I have patience for most things but little bits for me.
I am always witnessing the ego’s chit chat. I could not sit for meditation this morning because I was in discomfort. I recognize how detoxing the body affects all areas of my ability to be present. It’s hard to hear noises. It’s difficult to be a loving cheerleader when the body feels depleted. It’s hard to stay focus on any one thing.
I know in a few days and weeks I will feel like a new person. But enduring this right now is not fun. I love how this brings up crap and I am able to detox the thoughts as well.
So I return to the sacred art of mindfulness today. I am being gentle with me. In doing so I will be going into a gentle flow yoga class and see what comes up.
All the plans I had for today have been changed. And for the next twelve hours or so it’s about nurturing my soul and body in the kindest and most loving manner.
Be kind to all parts of you. Be gentle when you feel rushed. Be loving when you feel anger. Be present when you just want to flee. It’s in these moments that we return to the simplicity of our calling and purpose here. It’s in the discomfort that we find our truth.
Love to all!
