Detoxing the Past
by Stefanie Miller
Notes to Myself
Learning to be present in our bodies is essential. Many highly sensitive beings have a tendency to disconnect from their body and their life since it feels way too dense and overwhelming. When we are disconnected from our bodies and life we cannot manifest our potential since we are not paying attention to what is going on inside of or around us. Being mindful of being fully present in the moment (without scattered thoughts and emotions that keep us disassociated) and coming fully into our body (rather than hovering just outside of it where it is nice and safe).
De-cluttering our home and workplace of anything and everything that we don’t need, want, or have a use for is one way of making space for the new energy to enter. I went through every draw, cabinet, and closet and got rid of many things. Holding onto objects that are useless tends to keep us stuck in the past and prevents us from moving forward.
My diet is an area that I had to look carefully at and make some major changes. I have always had a lot of digestive issues and I have found that cutting out gluten, wheat and flour, sugar, and dairy from my diet has made a huge difference. Once I stopped eating these things I rarely if ever crave them.
Many of us have food sensitivities that we aren’t conscious of. So much of the food is processed and contains harmful substances that our bodies can no longer digest. Many of us have become sensitive to consuming foods that not that long ago we were able to tolerate, as we are becoming increasingly more sensitive we have to make big changes in our eating habits in order to feel healthy. Paying attention to what we are consuming and how it makes us feel is a big part of being mindful. By blessing our food with love, light, and nourishment, gratitude, and honoring the life force of what we are eating raises its vibrational frequency.
Detoxification of our body is a major part of this process. Getting plenty of rest, drinking plenty of water, taking the necessary vitamins and minerals for our particular needs (seeing a physician to get our blood work done to determine areas where we are lacking), eating foods that are nutritious and full of life force energy and detoxing from things that are harmful to our system are ways we can do this.
Too much caffeine, mind altering substances, foods that our body cannot digest, stress, anxiety, and living/working in an environment with lots of toxins (mold, mildew, dust, etc.) causes our bodies to become toxic (build up of yeast, fungus, parasites, bacteria in our stomach). Doing a cleanse to flush out our system assists us greatly in bringing in the higher frequencies since light cannot come into a body that is dense and heavy with toxins.
I have been on this cleanse for the past two months and feel a major shift in my body and mind. My body feels lighter and my thoughts are clearer.
Incorporating other modalities while cleansing assists the process. I am doing yoga stretches at home and walking to build strength and stamina. Mindful breathing is essential in replenishing, many of us take shallow breaths, pay attention to our breathing as we hold in anger, anxiety, and fear, and we must let it go and allow life force energy to circulate through our system. I have also done reflexology, massage, meditation, energy healing and working with my energy centers, and meridians.
Being outside is immensely healing. Connecting with the earth energy is grounding. Running a grounding cord deep into the earth and anchoring our Soul within our body. Sitting by or going into the water has wonderful natural purifying abilities. The rays of the sun hold the power to cleanse away what no longer serves us. Breathing in the fresh air brings in the life force energy into our bodies. Being amongst nature uplifts my spirit and relaxes me. I feel the pulse of the Universe being outdoors and I find I can balance my energies and be in the divine flow when I am spending time outside on a daily basis. I call on the fairies to assist me in my healing process.
We have been in the process of emptying out everything and anything that no longer serves us. Relationships have come to an abrupt end, which we were not based on the mutual goal of what we are creating in the next phase of our lives. On the other hand issues in our relationships that hadn’t been addressed are being resolved. Whereas before neither person wanted to talk about what was bothering them, now we are ready to clear the air. The people meant to be in our lives will stand firm and the relationships that have served their purpose are ready to depart.
Motivation and inspiration have been lacking in a big way as we are rebooting and recalibrating. There is not much energy of creation. There have been pockets and periods of time to go forward with projects and things will miraculously get done and then as quickly as the window of opportunity opens it will suddenly shut down. We’re better off spending our time and effort elsewhere cause when it’s not flowing its just not gonna happen! Following the energy of what feels right (following our intuition and inner guidance) when to pursue and when to lay low is a skill best cultivated in this energy.
Nothing can get it in when we are dense and weary. Hence, as our motivation and inspiration is gone thus, we have more time to rest and relax since we can get very little done anyway! During our periods of rest we are rejuvenating and literally our DNA is being restructured at a core cellular level! And we only thought we were just taking afternoon naps or sleeping in late!! When someone says we’re lazy we can tell them what we’re REALLY doing!! Being gentle without ourselves and honoring what we need in the moment is necessary. Pushing ourselves past our capacity doesn’t allow Source to work miracles. I awaken from a deep sleep and feel the pulsating energy within me.
Detoxing our thoughts is as important as our bodies. Patterns, limiting thoughts and beliefs must be shed. The old ways of doing things just no longer work the way they used to. It’s high time to find a new way! I firmly stated to the Universe, “I no longer see myself as helpless, victimized, or unloved. I release poverty consciousness, and see myself abundant and radiant in all ways. And so it is!”
Our hearts are opening to deeper levels of allowing true love in. Issues from the past, issues in our relationships, issues within ourselves will suddenly come to the surface to be dealt with. Deep pain and anguish can arise and tears of sadness and loss may be shed. As we truly allow ourselves to heal from the past, we can open our hearts once and for all and allow love that is deep and abiding in.
We are entering a period where we will be living from the heart. The healing and opening of the heart is the most profound part of this entire process. We are and will continue to experience love at deeper and deeper levels, grander and greater than we ever imagined possible! We will feel our heart bursting open with powerful waves of love if we just allow this process to unfold. We will naturally attract loving relationships based on mutual love and respect.
Please assist me in making positive changes in my life. I wish to experience vibrant health and happiness.
Please release me from my addictions and desires to unhealthy food, beverages, situations, and substances. Guide me in releasing attachments to unhealthy relationships, thoughts, patterns, and habits.
I forgive myself for all the ways in which I sabotage my wellbeing and make choices that do not benefit my life. I love myself and I honor my body, mind and spirit.
From this moment forward I ask you to guide me in making changes that will be for my highest and greatest good.
I no longer see myself as helpless, victimized, or unloved in any way, shape or form!
I AM healthy, nourished, and radiant in every possible way!
And so it is.
