Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Day 3 of my 10 day juice feast.
I am feeling pretty good today. So far so good anyway.. yesterday as the day went on I started to feel yucky (tired, achy and pretty good headache) so I decided it was time for that coffee enema. I am getting to where I don’t mind them. It’s I think my 6th one I have done in the last year. After that I felt much better and took a nap..
I have closed down my business for a couple of weeks (I work out of a home office.. I am a jewelry designer and sell gemstones to other designers).. I have decided my health was more important than business.. at least for a while… until the guilt sets in!
I made a veggie “broth” soup with my juice last night. I really wanted something warm.. I used a food thermometer and heated it to 100. It was just warm enough for me at that. I just went to the fridge, started pulling out LOTS of veggies and juiced them.. I got carried away.. I used tomato, celery, cucumber, carrot, kale, parsley, red chard, red bell, beet, ginger and 2 cloves of raw garlic.. pushed them thru my juicer and although it could have been a horrendous juice I got lucky! It was REALLY good (I love garlic but toward the end it was a bit too much garlic.. but not too much for me to finish!).
I am preparing for what is to come for me... I remember on my last juice feast (I only made it to 7 days) on day 6 I had a horrid, emotional melt down. I actually felt like I was almost possessed… (seriously).. I felt dark and mad and angry. And VERY, very rageful. I thought I was going crazy. I felt like I was someone else.
I wrote about it in my journal and was pretty traumatized by it, I almost had like this feeling of evil around me.. I think with my Christian upbringing though that I just related evil to the really dark feelings that were coming up.. and the extreme anger.
I knew about emotional detox but was REALLY freaked out by it. The next day was only the tiniest bit better. I ended up not being able to cope with it and coming off my feast that night.
I have a few things in the past that have happened to me that are pretty sad but I really thought I had worked thru them truly.. I have not thought about them in years. I’ve done the therapy, done the burning of written letters, done all the things you are supposed to do to “release” past trama. Why would that come back up.. when I really felt it was GONE - I did all the right things..?
Anyway this time I want to reach out ahead of time and ask what others have experienced with emotional detox. I know it can be bad. I’ve read Angela Stoke’s book about it. What have you all gone thru with this?
Either way I am doing this. I may come here begging for support in a day or two but I am not giving in this time. I have to make it thru that.
Have a GREAT day everyone! I am feeling very hopeful.
