Day 5 of 21 Day Challenge!

Day 5

Clarity! In order to have clarity, you need to take away distractions. What kind of distractions do you have? Food? Social media? TV? Gossip? Worry? Bills? Relationships, Drama? Too many things on your plate?


What can you start stripping from your life today?  I’m notorious for over packing my schedule.  I have no problems teaching three classes, drive my kids to activities, run my errands, clean, make dinner, and go to a birthday party all in one day.  I appreciate my very wise husband who teaches me to say “no”.  Just because I can, doesn’t mean I should.  So, I had to cancel some things for this weekend and now I have some space to breathe and just be.  I don’t have to do everything!!!  Whew!!!

Are you praying for clarity? When we are bogged down with “stuff” it’s easy to have too much chatter in our brain.  During this fast, focus on the letting go of the things that no longer serve you.  It will be hard…but it will be freeing:)))

 

During this cleanse, I’m eating pretty much a vegan diet.  It’s really not that bad.  The food is tasty and I feel so much better.  My only gripe is that it takes a lot longer to prepare and plan.  Other than that, I’m doing well and haven’t cheated at all!  Yay me!
Much love,
Judy

 

21 Day Detox Challenge!!! Here we GO!!!!!

Ready or not, here it is.  I will be sharing my journey for this 21 day challenge.
We will officially begin Monday, Jan. 20th to Feb. 10th.  Our private challenge group is already full but you can follow along here if you want.

We will walk through a 21 day program of eating only fruit, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and certain oils. (Full list attached below). Basically, this is considered a fast. Regardless of your religious background, this fast will help you to shed layers, and strip away belief systems and give you the enlightenment to develop breakthroughs that will allow major paradigm shifts. The number one thing you will need to be in this group is authentic. The deprivation of comfort foods is to get to our core being. I understand that we are all at different places spiritually. That is totally fine. But be real about where you’re at. I’ll be coming from a Christian world view. This fast actually is inspired by Daniel in the bible and his 21 day journey. (Daniel 10) At the end of his 21 day, he had so much more clarity and was more healthy than the rest of the people who ate at the King’s table.
He was able to hear clearly and have wisdom to discern. Even if you are not a Christian, you can follow along and be true to your spirit, gut, intuition, or whatever you want to call it. I guarantee that you will get clarity from this. I commit to praying for all of you in this challenge group. There will be no judgment. We are all here for ourselves and no one else. Just be as real and raw as possible. This will be hard. Our goal is to let go of attachments to things that give us comfort. Food is a huge factor in our lives. This will be very restrictive and not meant to be for the long haul. It’s supposed to be uncomfortable so that our reliance is on God and not ourselves or what we can do for ourselves. I’m really looking forward to this journey with you. And like with anything else, please modify or substitute what you need to in order to do this cleanse in a healthy way.

I want you to look at this as a certain type of pilgrimage. I want you to start looking at what it is you’re going to leave behind. I want you to write down what you want to get out of this cleanse. What breakthroughs are you hoping for.

Believe me, if you’re not ready, this will be very uncomfortable.  I have to say that I’ve been mentally preparing for a couple of  weeks now, and have already experienced major breakthroughs! And we haven’t even started yet!!! I’m excited and scared at the same time:)))
