Spring is such a beautiful time of year… Flowers start blooming, nature comes to life again after the winter, and it symbolizes a time for new beginnings. Spring is a time to reflect on the old patterns and habits of the past and clear the way for a new intention… Out with the old, make room for the new.
Most people do a spring cleaning for their homes and offices during this time of year to clear out space and get their lives organized again. But since our bodies are the vehicle in which we experience this thing called life, it makes a lot of sense to clean out our sensory filters…
So I’ve decided to do a little spring cleaning myself! I’m doing a 14 day cleanse to clear out any build up of toxins and literally clean my body from the inside out. Not only is a cleanse great in the physical sense, but it’s also symbolic for helping us clear out old emotions, patterns, and habits that no longer serve us. My intention here is really to get more focus, clarity, and inner harmony within my body.
I’ve tried different types of cleanses before, but this time I’ve decided to try something new. I’m going to do a 2 week raw food cleanse with some natural herbs for detoxing. I’ve never really tried the whole raw food thing before, but it does make a lot of sense…
You see, when we cook food, we destroy all of the naturally occurring enzymes. Enzymes are small proteins that act as ‘catalysts’ or transformative agents in the body. They are intra-cellular communicators and are responsible for helping us break down old cooked food residues and stagnation.
In the physical sense, they are essential for overcoming digestive lethargy… But on a more holistic level, enzymes help us to overcome life’s ruts and setbacks. They have the ability to raise our level of consciousness.
There are many other reasons to choose a raw food diet and if I tried to cover all of them, you’d be here all day reading this post! The point is not to convince you that a raw food diet is better, but just to inform you of the reasons why I’m choosing to do a raw food cleanse.
Like I said, I’ve never done it before, so I really don’t know what to expect. I’ll keep you updated and let you know how it goes! Leave me a comment down below if you’ve ever tried a cleanse, detox, or a raw food diet and let me know what you’ve experienced! I’d love to get your feedback.
