Full Body Cleanse and Detox

IMG_4333

Where do I start?

To begin a proper detox you must first get in touch with your body.

If you’ve been using your body like a dumping ground, putting a lot of the wrong foods into it, like I was, then it may take some time.

I will not tell you to stop doing things, but will guide you to start doing things that honor and respect your body temple.

If you follow the guidelines, you will find that your desire for certain food and drink will disappear of their own accord.

This is not a strict diet, or a regimented plan of action, but if you use your intuition, move at your own pace, and put forth the effort you will see many profound changes start to happen.

You will regain hope that it is possible to live in a healthy body at any age.

I will take you through seven days to get you started.

Please join me on this journey.

Even though I have only laid out seven days for you, I think you’ll find that this is much easier than it may look at the moment, and will bring much joy to your heart if you choose to continue for a lifetime.

Doing a full-body detox and cleanse takes a bit of planning.

What I offer here for you is the step-by-step plan that was laid out for me when I first arrived in Hawaii, by my guides, or “the higher ups” as I like to call them.  You can read about that here.

I will be doing this with you and recommend doing one of these every six months for the rest of your life for full-body maintenance.

With all of the advertising influences and other daily distractions, it can be easy to “fall back” to doing things the old way.

As you progress, all of your senses will be heightened and you will experience more joy bubbling up from within .

You will feel lighter and your inner light will shine brighter and you will begin to experience the world from a whole new perspective.

******************************************************************************

13 steps to a new body.

  1. Do a mental “scan” of your body.  Get into a quiet place, lying or sitting.  Close your eyes and “scan” your body, getting in touch with any aches or pains.   If you are experiencing any maladies in certain areas, send white healing light to that area and ask your body what it needs.

Depression and fatigue are your body’s way of letting you know it’s running on overload – so are aches and pains.

 

Write down any thoughts or ideas that come to the surface of your mind.  This is how your body communicates with you.   “Flax seed crackers” came up for me, so I’m working on a recipe that I will be sharing with you.

2.  Prepare your shopping list.

Fresh organic fruits and vegetables of your choice

Lean meats, I only use chicken and occasionally wild caught salmon.

Psyllium fiber – you can “dry” blend it for a finer powder.  It’s gentler on the body. I mix it in my smoothies.

Green powder – for smoothies.

Plain Greek yogurt – full fat ( non-fat dairy usually has added chemicals and sugar)  full fats are more satisfying and will reduce hunger cravings.

For sweet tooth craving – Plain unsweetened apple sauce, Honey or Maple flavored yogurt.

3.  Set up a journal to track yourself.  Now’s a good time to set your intention.  Write out your affirmations.  ( I used some extra pages in my planner to set it up.  If you have a planner, this is what I recommend. )

4.  Weigh in and take your measurements.

5. Before you begin, get in touch with your body.

Get a full body massage.

Go swimming – my fave!  Take a slow walk in Nature.  Walk barefoot on some grass or dirt, and soak in some sunlight.   Do some stretches out doors if possible.

Tune into your beautiful body and thank it for knowing how to take care of you.

6.  Now’s a good time to assess your beauty routine.

Look for body products and shampoos that don’t have a lot of cancer causing chemicals in them.  What you put “on” your body goes into your blood stream.

I recommend

Dr. Bronner’s castile soap

Shikai hair products

Virgin coconut oil for moisturizer

Boom Cosmetics for the face and body

Get a natural bristle brush for a dry brush massage.

Stop the use of synthetic perfumes.

Now’s a good time to try some essential oils –

You can make our own blends by adding a few drops to rubbing alcohol or vodka.

I also love the orange blossom and rose petal waters from the Mediterranean market.  They are distillations of the blossoms and make a nice base to your essential oils.  ( never use an essential oil directly on the body as it could cause a reaction. )

7.  Consider doing your laundry with Borax and Arm and Hammer washing soda – you can add some castile soap to this for sudsing action ( grate it first)

8.  Eliminate all polyester clothing and bedding from your life.

Polyester has been found through energy testing to lower the auric field.

Switch to natural cottons, linens, and wool and let your aura shine at it’s brightest.

9.  Eliminate all hand sanitizers, harsh cleaning chemicals, and artificial room deodorizers from your home.

10.  Reduce your use of prescription drugs by adopting a healthy lifestyle.

Your body is a natural healer – but too much toxicity in the body prevents it from doing it’s work.

11.  On the second or third day after starting a detox – go in for a colon hydro therapy session or give yourself a few enemas to help your elimination processes evacuate the toxins that your body will be releasing.

If you have had a lifestyle of fast foods, a lot of meat, or processed foods, it would be a good idea to set up a series of regular visits to a colon hydro-therapist.

There could be a build up of plaque along your intestinal walls that’s preventing proper absorption of nutrients and keeping toxins from poor eating habits and prescription drugs in your system.

You will also experience more youthful vitality by keeping your colon clean.

Even coffee can create a tar-like substance in the colon.

12.  Probiotics – naturally fermented kombucha sauerkraut, kefir, yogurt should be taken daily.

It’s so easy to make your own – visit Cultured Food Life to learn more about this.

13.  Find ways to get more exercise and move that body.

Play some music and dance like nobody’s watching

Put on your favorite tunes and walk

I like Leslie Sansone’s walking videos when it’s too hot or cold to go outside.

I always park at the farthest spot when shopping and running errands

Whether you do better in group exercise or on your own, I find yoga to be one of the best and most gentle of ways to really get in touch with my body.

There are classes you can sign up for online for pennies a day.  Daily Om, and anytime yoga for example.

And you just may find it easier to incorporate a meditation practice into your lifestyle which  is essential to living your best life.

Always, always have music that uplifts you, and  helps your spirit soar.

No more criticizing your body wishing you had this or that.

It’s time to love your body, be thankful for the miracle that it is, hold your head high, keep your posture straight, shoulders back ( you can align your posture by standing against a wall), stepping out with grace and ease.  Step into your light body.

IMG_4330

Make a vision board.  Visualize yourself in your perfect body.  Notice how it feels!  Carry that feeling with you the entire day!.

 

img_4331.jpg

Make your vision board on one of your planner pages.

Make your vision board on one of your planner pages.  Keep it simple.

You are a gift to the Universe, and by showing up as your best self every day, you will see what a gift you are to yourself.

Go at your own pace, Be gentle on yourself.

Drink 6 – 8 glasses of pure water each day.

Namaste ( the goddess in me bows to the goddess in you)

Following bread crumbs…How did Hansel and Gretel survive?

By practicing the 27 days of Feng Shui challenge here, and 30 days of Gratitude here at the beginning of the year, I think of the story about Hansel and Gretel leaving bread crumbs along their trail in the forest so they could find their way home upon returning.

The Forest

We’ve made the clearing by eliminating all of those things that no longer spark joy.

Hansel and Gretel were left in the forest because their parents couldn’t afford to feed them.  They expected them to become lost.

The forest is your home.  By clearing your clutter you will see your way more clearly.

The bread crumbs

We’ve laid a path of gratitude and love, taking time to appreciate the people, circumstances, and  blessing that are present in our lives.

Hansel and Gretel dropped bread crumbs along the path, thinking this would lead them back home.  Little did they know, that the critters in the forest were hungry and would eat all of the bread crumbs. (The bread crumbs symbolize insincere prayers that are not heart felt. )

The ginger bread house

There may be distractions along the way. ( When Hansel and Gretel saw the house made of ginger bread, their hunger got the best of them, and all they could think of was devouring that house!)

Habits, moods, circumstances can draw us in and cause us to lose our focus.

The Witch

We’ve faced head-on some of the less than pleasant things in our lives and hopefully pushed pass them.

Or maybe they found a way to move on.

It seems that everyone is hungry in this story, even the witch!  She was planning to eat the children for dinner!

Perhaps, their hunger was a Spiritual Hunger, that could only be satisfied by a Connection to Spirit.  ( Everything else can wait, but your search for God cannot wait. Once the connection to your God Source is established, all of your needs are satisfied. )

The Oven

You may have escaped from “the oven” of uncertainty and witnessed a miracle, or been given more clarity.  ( The oven is the Fire of Spirit directing your life and burning up the dross of a matter based existence. )

After the children pushed the witch into the oven, they were free.

Now, it’s time to turn and face the path home and hope the birds haven’t made a meal of your bread crumbs.

Practicing gratitude should be an everyday occurrence by now.

Gratitude promotes prosperity and healing in our lives.

Even if the birds have devoured some of your carefully laid bread crumbs, you can look for other signs to find your way home.

The signs that the Universe brings are sometimes subtle and easy to overlook, to miss all together, or to discount their validity.

And you may not get reminders if you ignore them.

Have you ever regretted not doing something when the signs  were all around you?

I have.

What kinds of signs can you expect?

You could receive a hunch or an idea.

You might see something that reminds you of someone.

Nature often sends signs.

You could get a strong feeling that every thing’s going to be okay.  That could be an Angel whispering in your ear.

You could feel a strong urge to take an action.

You could see a message on a license plate while driving.

Whatever it is, take notice, jot it down in a journal or a notebook, or take action.

Start collecting those bread crumbs or signs that you see along your path.

This is how the Universe guides us.

When we are doing “inner work” there’s a time for sewing the seeds and reaping the harvest.

It takes time.

Sometimes years.

It’s important to do the work of decluttering, training our minds to expect the best, pushing through adversity, and practicing patience through trust and faith.

Watch for the signs and be ready to act when an opportunity presents itself.

************************************************************************

  1. Stay in tip-top form, by staying physically active – exercise and nutrition
  2. Update your wardrobe so you look your best.  Update your home’s “wardrobe” so it lifts your spirit.
  3. Keep mentally sound through meditation, getting plenty of sleep, learning all you can.
  4. Emotionally fit by practicing gratitude, forgiveness, and always focusing on the positive.  No more complaining.
  5. Spiritually Alert – through inner stillness, meditation and prayer, spending time in Nature.
  6. Keep a journal of the signs and symbols that come your way.

Now you are ready for the next great offer that comes your way.

Hansel and Gretel found their way home after discovering the Witch’s treasure.  They returned home to help their parents with their newly found prosperity.

Do you have an idea what the Witch’s treasure might have been?

Please leave your comments below.  I hope you enjoyed this post.  While I was writing it, I actually surprised my self with some of the things that came forward.

I wish you all the best.

The Event: The Wave — Era of Light

Greetings! From heart to heart in this moment we speak, I am KejRaj(KayRy). The reason I say ‘we’ speak is because besides my self choosing to deliver this message, I know I am also being guided by other forces in this journey.

via The Event: The Wave — Era of Light

I’m sharing this today, because I want to urge everyone to take time to meditate and become heart centered.  Today, I had a glimmer of this new “wave” that is coming in.  I felt such tremendous love for everyone, and it’s important that you are ready when this comes.  Mahalo

30 Days of Gratitude…day 9…..

IMG_3663

Turning the Corner

We have 9 days left on this Gratitude Journey….

If you’ve been practicing Gratitude for the last 21 days, you are probably starting to see some results.

Things have started to shift in your favor.

Expressing gratitude is becoming a daily practice, a way of life, and you are noticing more things that perhaps you used to take for granted.

Maybe you’ve started noticing signs from the Universe that your angels are present.

Pennies, feathers, hearts, butterflies, repeating numbers are all signs.

For years, I’ve found pennies on the ground.

In the last few years, I’ve been consistently finding dimes.

Since I’ve come to Hawaii, I’m consistently finding quarters on the ground.

Things have been showing up for me just when I needed them.

 

IMG_3773

Mango!

I received two weeks free of yoga classes.

My daughter unpacked her Holosync CD’s that I’ve been wanting to try.

Mangos keep falling out of the tree in the front yard, just in time for my morning smoothie!

And things in Sacramento are beginning to fall into place, as I practice patience on this gratitude journey.

I cannot emphasize enough, how important it is to keep a journal and write every little thing down.

IMG_3793

Today, as we turn the corner on our countdown of the final nine days, lets begin (if you haven’t already) to write out an affirmation of something you dearly want.

Pick just one thing today and for the next nine days, write your affirmation 27 times each day.

State your affirmation in the present.

I am …

I now have…

I am grateful for…

You fill in the blanks

Taking gratitude to the next level of manifesting our desires we are the creators of our destiny in partnership with All That Is.

This or something better is my prayer for you as you allow the Great Knowing to be present in your life and become your best friend.

And so it is!

Expect the best!

You deserve it!

 

 

Is that my reflection looking at me?

via Photo Challenge: Reflecting

I recently committed to stay in Hawaii through August which will be approximately four months here.

One month down, I’ve been busy with grandson and daughter most of the time, with various responsibilities.

I do still find time for working on blog, etc. but have not been consistent.

IMG_3483

I’ve had some time to reflect on which way my life should go, what’s pulling me, and what my next move will be.

The job I was hoping for was only a promise, and with many delays during the last Mercury Retrograde, I was offered this chance to be in Hawaii again.

The one thing that I’ve done consistently is swim almost every day.

Swimming in the salt water pool after the sun has rested behind the trees, has been my time for reflecting on what my focus should be.

IMG_3490

As I swim, I enjoy the velvety smooth water caressing my skin, cooling, relaxing and energizing at the same time.

I feel my muscles contracting, my back and stomach strengthening ever so gently.

And it dawned on me, with such clarity, that I’m here, again, in Hawaii, to focus on improving my physical condition.

In the seven steps to ascension that I wrote about here, being physically fit is the one area that I’ve neglected, or haven’t put my focus on.

What better place than Hawaii?

I need to make physical fitness my way of life.

As I move through my 60’s, I realize how important it is to eat organic and mostly raw, to avoid doctors if at all possible, stay chemical free ( except for a cup of coffee in the morning, a glass of wine occasionally) and water as my go-to beverage.

Along with meditation as a daily practice, the next piece is a weekly practice of moving the body.  ( I’m not too structured here and purposely do not say “diet” or “routine”, or regimen.

IMG_3455

Cottage Mavens,

The Universe has done it again! Plopped my in Hawaii for a long stretch so I’m “forced” to face myself head-on and do the work that I’ve been sent here to do, improve my physical appearance, which in turn will improve my life in so many ways.

I’ve got the pool in my back yard, I’m signed up for yoga classes and I have this whole island to explore for the next three months.

The final ingredient that I need will be to set my intention, write my affirmations, express gratitude for this opportunity, and settle in with the same strong will and determination that I used to lose the first 25 lbs. You can read about it here.

I hope you will join me, no matter what your age, to take this fitness thing to the next level.

I’m moving into my senior years on a high note.

It’s important to take the time out of your day to reflect on what your life is calling you to do.  All we have to do is listen.

What are your thoughts on this?  I would love to hear from you.  Please sign up so you don’t miss a post, and thank you for your comments.

 

 

30 Days of Gratitude…Day 10….

IMG_3658

Dear Ones, Why do we need affirmations?

Affirmations are the keys to the Universe.

They unlock the doors to Heaven so that blessings and light can pour into your life.

When you don’t use them, a dormancy is created, a stagnation, as a dust covered shelf that has been left unattended.

To activate your emotions, and stimulate new creations, affirmations act as a catalyst to start the energy flowing again.

Affirmations are best used in the present tense such as…

I am prosperous

I am light

I am divinely guided

I am one with All That Is

Embrace these words, and keep them in your pocket.

They can be used to diffuse and dissipate negative thoughts by replacing the worries, loneliness, loss, judgements, and criticisms with light filled promises that uplift, energize, retrain, and reinforce the beauty of your soul and it’s true essence. 

Use them daily.

When we look upon you, we only see what is good and true.

It is you who have attached your mind to beliefs about yourself that are not true.

Only you can change this.

But, you must ask for help from your Angels, and practice prayer, gratitude, and positive affirmations to open the doors for your blessings to flow into your life.

As you raise your vibration you will lift others.

Do not judge.

Just continue to do the work

You are fully supported as you learn these truths.

All is well

Om Shanti.

The 100 th Monkey

If money were no issue, I would save the world.

How often have you thought that to yourself, your heart going out to the homeless, the hungry, the horrors that we see daily happening to our planet and the people, animals, and nature on a daily basis?

Where do we start when it’s all so complicated?

It’s all so over whelming that a lot of people just look the other way and carry on with their lives, just doing the best they can.

Then there are others who choose to join the fight and protest.

Many great changes have come about through protesting.

Many people do their sharing on social media, sharing petitions that need to be signed.

There are some who choose to vote with their ” big green purse” who do the research and choose to buy only from those companies, and put their money in the banks that support the common good, not the profit-mongering corporations who have a hidden agenda.

Then there are the bloggers.

There are many who call themselves “Light workers” and those who are just sharing their beautiful hearts with the world, who don’t realize that they are also light workers.

As we enter into the Piscean Age, our higher senses are being fine-tuned.

Our vibrations are becoming more sensitive to spiritual matters.

As humans, we don’t come with directions when we are born on how to navigate our lives.

We can only rely on our family environment, our friends, our community and our world.

Scary thought isn’t it?

As many of those aspects have been broken or tampered with , and leave us wondering ” What is real?”

Many people are turning to the “blog world” to learn the truth, searching for answers that have been hidden from them in the process of growing up.

As bloggers we have a responsibility to stand on our truths, to speak our minds, our hearts, and to share the beautiful, the profound, the ordinary, the unusual, for anyone who needs it.

I’ve often said, ” It takes a village”.  We are building cyber-villages through blogging.

Each person can choose who will be in their village, and customize it to their own needs.

It’s the hundredth monkey theory, when it comes to saving the world.

It may sometimes feel like an uphill battle in a world that seems to be falling apart, and it feels as though we are going backwards at times, but this is just the “limbo” period that I talk about.

It’s a time to persevere, stay strong in our truths, and “chop wood and carry water”.

We really are on an upward journey.

Everyone has a role to play.

There are the protagonist and the antagonists in every play.

Without the contrasts, we might become complacent, and not feel there would be a need to act.

It’s important for each person to know that you are saving the world every day by the choices you make.

it doesn’t cost anything to offer a smile to a stranger.

A smile of gratitude and recognition that We Are All One!

Today I am grateful that I can do my part to save the world by every word, every thought, and every act that comes from my heart.

It takes more than money to save the world.

It takes a profound spiritual cleansing, and that can only happen by each of us shining our light, igniting a bonfire.

In Gratitude for all that you do every day, in your quest to save the world.

And So It Is!

Share your light!  Please check out http://www.Beyond the Sphere.com and share your light.

Ascension and Climbing that Ladder

via Daily Prompt: Climbing

image

Dear Ones,

What can you tell me about the ascension process to help others understand what is happening?

First of all, we will enlighten those who are needing answers on the importance of every day matters.

Step One

Clean eating, wearing natural fiber clothing, eliminating chemicals from your daily activities, will lighten your load for these things cause imbalance and undue stress as they are not compatible with the body’s natural functioning.

( There may be a period of adjustment here, and could take some time.)

Step Two

Preparing the body through physical activity (exercise), drinking plenty of pure water, fresh air, taking deep breaths, and spending more time in the natural world with the sun shining on them.

Step Three

Eliminating clutter and accumulated things from your lives.

Step Four

Walking in a state of gratitude.  Blessing your food and water in order to raise the vibration before taking it into your bodies.

Step Five

Monitoring your thoughts and the words you think and speak every day.

You are creators.

As each word thought, or spoken that we hear is like a prayer or request to the Source of All That Is.

Step Six

Meditation and prayer is key to bringing in more light, for clearing obstacles, and for opening your soul to the Higher Good.

Step Seven

Calling in your helpers, angels, guides, saints, sages for assistance and guidance in staying connected to Pure Source energy.

************************************************

Light is coming in to the planet to assist you.

These are the steps you must take to climb the ascension ladder.

Your life will shift and change as you go through these steps.

Be gentle

Feel Peace

Act with Love

Thank you    Thank you    Thank you
