Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

hi lovely friends,

It has been quite a while since I've posted - although I always enjoy visiting the 'Hab to see what everyone is up to.

About 3 weeks ago on a sunny Sunday afternoon I experienced a car collision. I won't go into the details - other than to say that my car was totaled and I have had the residual effects of 'whiplash' in both body and emotions - sprain, sore muscles, fearful about driving again and such.

I know that this is an invitation to slow down, to listen to my body and to restore my natural state of harmony .

I am so grateful to have the solid foundation of a plant based raw diet - I know that I will heal, I am healing and that there are gifts as yet unseen for me to discover along the way.

I signed up for an organic veggies box to be delivered once a month - this reduces my need to shop somewhat and it is so much fun to open the box and find the treasures inside for my salads and smoothies.

I am so grateful for our beautiful planet, this bountiful earth - I am even more appreciative for having one of those life-clarifying moments that could have turned out differently.

One of the sweetest things that I am doing for my healing is to lay down in the lap of the mother - Earth - and to receive the energies of resonance that are graciously and freely given. 

and, I am still walking - the gym and dancing will have to wait for a while - but I am still walking and loving the wild flowers of the spring that are so abundant here in Northern California.

I wish you blessings for Earth Day and every day!

it is soooooo sweet to return to RFR on a MOnday morning and find these love messages - thank you!

djd - yes harmony returning - supported by epsom salt baths and calm breathing

angela - I am being even more conscious of my internal state before and during driving - keeping it to short trips when I can, and declaring some days no-driving days!

Gill - the main thing I have changed is to be gentle with myself, to take my time doing the things that I have committed to and buffering the 'doing' with lots of self-care and 'being'. For instance I had a speaking engagement last Sunday - so the night before I only took care of myself, no phone calls, no tv - just being in my own frequency - and in the morning I allowed extra time for each thing I needed to do to prepare so that there was no rushing involved. I am tuning in to my own natural rhythms and acknowledging the importance of this time to heal and rebalance.

Heather L.O.V.E. - gentle and loving is the only way to travel! I am so aware that it is the little girl inside that is afraid and I am honoring her need for reassurance while I take my time

thank you all, and many blessings to you today!

I'm so sorry about the collision, but it is great to hear that you are ok and back on the road to 100%.  I know what you mean about the fear about getting back behind the wheel again.  Trust will come again with time.  In the mean time you are being gentle and loving with yourself which is awesome.  ((hugs)) and glad you are mostly ok!

I am happy to hear you are progressing Janet! Good for you. Yep slow down a bit and heal, eat your organic box (yaya!) and be well. Happy laying down on the grass! woohooo

Oh Janet I'm so sorry to hear about the collision but glad to hear that that you're okay. The whiplash must be awful and it's understandable that you feel fearful of driving. I do hope that as djd puts it so well that "harmony returns inside and out " very soon : )

Lots of love Angela XXX

Such an accident would indeed be a shock.  May all return to harmony inside and out.
