Goddess Group – The Word for the Day is “Protection”
February 11, 2009
February is turning out to be fasting month! Hey, wasn’t that a great post by Natalia yesterday? I can’t wait for part 2! Today is day 10 of my fast. No more hunger pains, no more tears, no more fights with my mind. I’m learning tons about myself, and my body. Check this cool ditty out. Our God pod comes with drains. When we eat the SAD diet, breathe in the earth dump or mainline stress and God dammit!, they get clogged. If we keep on truckin’ we back up. Like a stuffy septic tank, the toxins spill out onto our physical and psychological lawns. They have no other place to go. Pee-u!
Speaking of Pee-u, our biggest pathway of elimination is our colon. By removing old waste through colonics, enemas, even the temporary use of certain natural laxatives, we allow our lovely livers to dump (gosh does that phenomenal organ need a break). Here come the dominos! Once our livers dump, our lymph system has a go at it. After the lymph system says AMEN, then our cells receive the invitation. It’s all so magically organized. Virgos love that!
Our body, being the wizard chamber that it is, does everything possible to protect itself from the onslaught of acids and poisons. It continually tosses the toxins away from vital organs and into the tissue and streams. What happens next? Sick, fat, pimply, tired and glass half-empty mentality settles in. Then? Dis-ease. Remember, we are what we eat, drink, think and don’t poop. Genetics plays a role in this for sure. But current research suggests that the role is much smaller than we previously thought – about 5-10%. Now that’s food for thought!
Imagine eating meal after stuffing/puffing meal (and snackies), and never properly eliminating. Clearly, we back up and shut down. We bloat and float. The mind gets mad, the moods flip-flop, our sex drive withers, our jeans look lumpy. Enter the self-esteem prison wardens. They SUCK! Never a nice word passes from their chapped lips. No matter what you do, you are never enough.
Have you been taught that abuse is love?
Whether we do it to ourselves or give others permission to flog, this learned behavior is a byproduct of our twisted domestication. If we are pure sunshine and God breeze then why on earth would we allow anyone (including ourselves) to trample the glow?
Perhaps the road back to the house of health is long. Big whoop! You can do it. But as I have learned, and you have witnessed in my rants, it takes a willingness to be exposed. Shedding hurts. Shedding makes you shiver. Shedding sloughs the barnacles and reveals the cherry red vintage mustang.
Are we really protecting ourselves by staying same ole same ole?
Drink your green juice ladies and gents! If you’re feasting today remember to stay on schedule. Check the previous “Goddess” posts for more details. 4-5 quarts of greens with a little lemon, apple or pear (if you need it for taste). Keep it light and bright but nourish yourself. Drink lots!
Peace and nudity,
Ps. If the delicate butterfly always worried about protection it would never travel thousands of miles home.
