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)

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

Why Worry? and what you can do about it.

 

Do you ever find yourself worrying about something, imagining the worst outcome of something over which you have absolutely no control over?

I’ve probably spent at least 30% of my life worrying.  No, maybe even 50%!

I’ve worried about my children, relationships, money, health, loss, always fearing what “could” happen.

I even worry about my car getting a flat tire while I’m driving on the freeway.

At some point, I decided that worrying was a futile attempt, as it didn’t do a bit of good for me or anyone else.

I realized that I was only sending the vibration of worry out into the Universe.

Worry is a non-constructive effort.

When my son was in high school was when I finally realized that worrying about him walking the streets at night was pointless.

That’s when I took up water color quilting.

 

IMG_4245

I could spend all of that time and energy on something creative.

I could spend the time used for worrying, cutting, and piecing together the pictures that I wanted to create.

 

IMG_4246

Water color quilt by Wanda S. Hanson

My mind would be healed as I worked with the colors and focused on creating something beautiful.

 

IMG_4244

Color Wash quilt by Wanda S. Hanson

It Worked!

I would become so lost in my art that time previously spent on worry, was replaced with a mind that wanted to create beautiful things.  And the time would pass so quickly!.

I just had to trust that my son would be okay.  And one night, when he arrived home, he sat down with me, and started helping me place some of the squares.  A very special moment for me.

Another thing I learned was to imagine a white light surrounding whatever it was that I was worried about.

Whether it was my car, a person, or a situation, I would call in my angels, ask for their help and protection, and put a white light of protection around it.

Then I would just hand it over to God.

I trained my little ego mind to delegate it’s concerns to the greater power.

I still worry at times.

But now, I recognize what’s happening, and redirect it’s course before it takes over.

I just live one day at a time and focus on the Now as much as possible.

Live each moment to the fullest and let the future take care of it’s self.

Now that I’m older, I even have less lines of worry on my forehead.

They’ve been softened and smoothed by the Angels.

Worry ends when faith begins.

For we walk by faith not by sight.  2 Cor. 5:7

30 Days of Gratitude…Day 1….Last Day of 30 countdown….

The Power of Gratitude, Manifesting and making lists…

Today is the 30th day of our gratitude journey.

It’s a practice that raises our vibration, connects us to our heart, our higher self, and shows us how to walk a path of heart-centered peace and contentment.

IMG_1266

If you are longing for more peace in your life, or the world, this is where you begin –

by connecting to your heart and experiencing the deepest gratitude, so that it flows naturally as an every day occurrence.

 

You may find yourself complaining less about what you don’t want in your life, and seeing more of what you do want as you make this a daily practice.

img_1944

Gratitude felt from the heart is the key to manifesting your heart’s desire.

IMG_1276

As you lift your focus and train your wayward thinking, you see more of the beauty in life, and your life takes on new meaning, clarity, and abundance as you naturally flow with love and gratitude.

IMG_3317

Take a moment to embrace your life with gratitude, right now.

Make a list of something you dearly wish for, and be specific.

Say a prayer of thanks as though you already have it.

Date it, and put it away.

IMG_3642

I’ve often made lists of the features that I would like in my dream home.

IMG_3915

Today I realized that I am currently living in it.

It has 4 bedrooms, a large pool in the backyard, a kitchen island, large windows lots of trees.  I’m surrounded by family.

IMG_3810

Don’t question how your wish will be delivered to you.

Just appreciate it for what it is.

Thank you for taking this journey with me.

I love you, I’m sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you.  Ho’oponopono

30 Days of Gratitude…Day 3….

As I appreciate the youthful vitality, sense of adventure, and pure joy in laughter, that my grandson brings to my life, I understand how much we need each other.

IMG_3608

I calm him, offer my wisdom to help him understand things, and just hang out with him.

IMG_3627

When I was raising my own children, I was so busy working that there were areas where my mom and sisters often “filled in” for me.

IMG_3610

Even today, we are lucky to have mom, age 89 for her joe-de-vivre and spunk.

 

IMG_3621

Waialae Beach

She adds another dimension to our lives, and helps us appreciate the fact that we all grow old, and that all of us have something to contribute to our family, friends, and our world.

Life is fragile.

IMG_3911

But as human beings as we experience the changing passages of living and dying, of youth and old age, we can realize and have gratitude for each contribution our loved ones make to help us grow into who we are.

And So It Is!

 

30 Days of Gratitude…Day 4…..

Lately, I’ve been missing “home”, my little cottage abode in Sacramento.

IMG_2729

I feel it calling me, with it’s comforting, soft colors, relaxed easy feel, and comfortable furniture.

 

IMG_0268

Dining room

Home is where I have my collection of crystals, needlepoints, and wooden pieces waiting to be decoupaged.

I’m in my second year of living part-time in Hawaii, part-time in Sacramento.

Even though I’m not retired, nor am I employed by any company, I’ve had the opportunity to explore my options, make enough money to survive, and I only have my family to thank for that.

 

IMG_0114

Galley Kitchen

While I’m in Hawaii my family keeps the home fires burning in Sacramento.

Wherever I am, I find ways to generate income by helping others, and selling things I’ve collected.

 

IMG_0120

Today the thought occurred to me that I would love to have a home in both places, continue to go back and forth.  Why not?  I’m already doing it.

IMG_0125

View of living room from kitchen

I’ve not been able to make a decision, or choose between the two places, picking one over the other as my destination of choice.

And for now, I’m okay with that.

I feel so much gratitude for the family members who have allowed me to come and go.

I call in blessings to them for their generosity of Spirit, as I have been truly blessed.

30 Days of Gratitude…Day 5….

Yes! But does it flow?

Sometimes, when you first move into a place you just want to get the furniture in  place, unpack the boxes, and start living your life.

Too many times to count, I’ve left pictures along the wall on the floor, thinking that if I hang them, something disastrous will happen, and I’ll have to move again.  I guess the act of leaving them on the floor keeps things in a temporary state, leaving me impermanent in case I need to fly the coop.

Maybe boxes get shoved into a closet to be dealt with later ( NOT).

When I finally overcame these fears (there must be some deep-seated psychological meaning to all of this) my life started to flow better, my mind became more clear, and I was able to recognize when something just didn’t feel right.

 

IMG_3516

Grandson’s room in Hawaii

 

As I walk around a room, I can sense the awkward flow of movement when something is blocking the flow of energy.

Now the pictures get hung, or stored, or donated.

The boxes, too.

The clutter is cleared.

 

IMG_3512

Bookcase was in this corner

In this room, the bookcase was sitting next to the closet, disabling the use of the large drawers near the floor.

It’s funny that now I go into other people’s houses and move the furniture.

 

IMG_3511

Bookcase now sits in this corner creating better flow

At home, I had a French arm chair sitting at my personal desk.  It was pretty, but it stuck out too far and obstructed the flow of traffic when one entered through the front door.

 

IMG_2468

Please excuse the mess!  Before picture with French chair.

So, I changed it. ( you can see the post where I redid my desk area here.)

 

 

IMG_2667

Enter Happy Chair that slides under the desk easily.

Take a look around your space.

Do a walk-through.

Is there anything blocking your path?

Are there any unfinished projects sitting around?  Is there a clear path from room to room?

If not, there could be something blocking your life path.

Lay the bagua over your room to see if any area that’s blocked or cluttered coincides with the area of your life on the Bagua.

IMG_3293

Lay the Bagua ( see photo above) over each room with the door to the room at the bottom of the page. The door of the room will fall into either the Knowledge, Career, or Helpful People area.

When I moved my chair from the desk and put an armless chair in it’s place (which fell in my Helpful People and Travel area of the Bagua) I was offered this trip to Hawaii.

When I moved the bookcase in this bedroom so that it wasn’t blocking the drawers, (also in the Helpful People and Travel area) he was offered a chance to go to boys’ camp for the Summer.

Coincidence, you may think?

I think not….

Try it, and let me know how it works for you.

Life can be so much easier when we are in the flow.

I express gratitude for the ability and understanding to keep my life flowing.

And so it is!

 

 

 

 

30 Days of Gratitude…Day 6….

How to create a loveable, livable Cottage

IMG_3824

When creating a room to have a cottage look and feel, there are some basic elements that say “cottage”.

The home I’m staying in for the summer is a rental, that sits near the ocean.  It definitely has lots of designer touches, so I decided to shop- the- house, and give this room that everyone seems to love so much, a bit of personality.

It has the “bones” of a cottage, but not the layering to give it that homey feel.

IMG_3819

Before picture

The walls are painted a soft gray. The white slip covered sofa is already in place, with the sisal rug, driftwood mirror, metal lamps, natural wood end tables, and a blue and white theme.

Even though this is a Beach Cottage, you can use these basic elements for your cottage no matter where you live.  Just use natural elements from your landscape and natural environment.

My daughter added the bookcase and the white desk and chair.  She calls this room the library.  The sofa, even though it’s slipcovered, makes out to a double bed to accommodate guests.

Since my sister and mom will be visiting, I wanted to take it up a notch to make them feel more comfortable, and give the room a more “inviting presence”.

Cottage Basics

1. a slipcovered sofa – preferably white, but can also be ticking fabric, or floral, even velvet will do.  Natural fabrics are a must.

IMG_3831

2. Pillows with mixed prints and scale ( too many pillows in the same size can look over crowded). See before picture.  I love floral pillows in a cottage, too.

IMG_3835

3. Details from Nature – blown glass, rocks, shells, metal sculptures, horns, antlers, plants.

IMG_3834

4. Soft lighting – lamps, salt lamps, candles, and lots of flowers.

IMG_3832

5. Bright colors ( since the room was already blue and white, I decided to introduce some pinks and turquoise). Don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit with some unexpected colors!

 

IMG_3837

Something personal – one of my paintings from a trip a few years ago.

6. Interesting wall art ie. vintage prints, words, wall decals

IMG_3828

7. Simple accessories

 

IMG_3836

Something hand made

8. A laid back look and feel with a place to put your feet up.

IMG_3830

9. Natural fragrance – herbs, moss, fresh flowers.

 

IMG_3822

Vintage surfer print

 

10. A space that says you!

YouIMG_3824

A way to express Gratitude to your self, or your guests, is to make your rooms as beautiful as you would like them to feel.

Each one of us is the King or Queen of our castles, and we can live in a special happy space, and feel gratitude every day.

You’re worth it!

A few words from Sonia Choquette “The Answer is Simple” oracle card deck:

“The Spirit is a sensitive light body and is influenced by the environment it finds itself in.  Dreary, dark, messy, cluttered, un-clean surroundings send the Spirit out the door and invite the goblins and trolls of negativity to move in and camp out in the corners.

It’s time to set this right:  Open the blinds, clear the decks, paint the walls, change the lightbulbs, and decorate the atmosphere where you live. Make your environment a proper home for your Spirit. Your Spirit must dwell in  a cheerful and festive place, filled with color and live plants, fresh flowers, clean windows, and bright light.

Your Spirit is a holy guest in your body and must be treated as royalty. You wouldn’t disrespect visitors with an unwelcoming environment or expect them to dwell in your mess, and you shouldn’t disrespect your Spirit by giving it less than the tranquil setting it deserves, either.  Take the time to create a festive and bright atmosphere for your Spirit.  Be happy to welcome it home. Give it the proper surroundings, and put out the best you have to receive it.

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!
