mirror, mirror by the wall

This room exudes calm and a tranquil spot to retire to. Although color is my vice, there comes a time for beige, a neutral palette to cleanse the mind & the soul. The past week, I was on a 5 day master cleanse of herbs and only fruits and veggies, the last 3 days consisted of magic potions. Veggie drinks, dandelion, celery, carrot, garlic, beet, ginger and they actually tasted amazing. My senses feel alive, the energy level is high and my skin feels super soft. My sense of smell, taste, sight, sound and touch all have been awakened.

I would encourage anyone thinking about trying this to work with a holistic counselor or a Doctor to guide you through. The emotions will vary for each of us. It is important to follow a checklist to keep one on track and a journal to record events and emotions.

Letting go of things that I thought I would not be able to live without, such as that freshly brewed coffee in the morning and the occasional glass of wine, all a distant memory and no cravings either. Limiting to just a natural diet or organic fruits and veggies is a wonderful way to bring about vibrancy and clear focus to a hectic life. My gratitude level for so many things has been heightened. I give thanks for my health counselor and yoga teacher. Click here to read about her, the fairest of them all.

that sounds like a really great experience. In the past few months I've cut eating meat down to 5 times a week and have been eating primarily fresh organic fruits and veggies -it sounds strange, but it really does change your life. I feel SO good! I should try one of these cleanses

collard green queen-
I am still committed to this plan and can introduce foods as I want and balance the with the drinks which really are tasty! So easy to juice and when you do, you realize that you could never eat that much in one meal.

I know someone who's done the cleanse, and he said it was a real ride! He feels much better, though.

What I love about this room is the persimmon-colored chair!

It sounds wonderful, and I would definitely need someone to coax me through. I am just not sure about no chocolate.

Wow, you did so well on your cleanse! You are like a soft white cloud that gracefully floats along and never gets to far down. Quite admirable!

simply seleta said...

Oops, make that "too" far down!

Still doing much of it. Kind of a lifestyle now, although I do cheat here and there. But still no caffeine for 7 weeks now! Cannot believe it.
