012 - Cleansing your gut

Today marks day 6 of 30 on my juice and smoothie feast. I began August 1st and in one day will have completed a full week. I look forward to the post I will right at the end of this month detailing all the experiences I have had during my juice feast 30-day journey. For now, there has been a period of adjustment that I wouldn't want to go through again. The up-side to it all is that I no longer have the urge to cheat and eat my crunchy goodness comfort foods such as potato chips. I only want to succeed on this journey and follow it with an even more purifying quest for balance and harmony.

I have found it to be very peculiar how my mind and body work together. I have been a devout follower of my lower "self" and unknowingly accepted it as my life's guide. Whenever I make a conscious effort to stay true to my raw food lifestyle, there is always this voice that speaks LOUDLY telling me only that my urge to crunch should be satisfied and this voice is supported by brightly colored packages in the grocery isles. The packages are supported by the years and years of television advertisements that helped drill into my mind how "scrup-dilly-ishous" all those sugar sweet treats are and how CRUNCHY those "oh-so-delicious", "you can't eat just one", potato chips are. I believed them wholeheartedly and now the task that lays ahead of me is to dismantle that frame of thought so that a more balanced consciousness is allowed to flow freely through my entire body. With this I am looking forward to a greater ability to present "calm" wherever I go and to eradicate my fears of a less significant existence.

All this,....just because I am on a Juice Fast cleanse!
