ONE HEALING QUESTION:EMOTIONAL DETOX

EAST MEETS WEST

A few years ago I listened to a series of meditations put together by Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey. It was a 21 day Spiritual Detox Series. There is one pearl of wisdom that I came away with that I use everyday and want to share today on this post. It is a question that can be applied to any situation. I mostly use it in interactions with others. Before any communication, or interaction. I don’t always remember, but I am getting better at remembering before I do tasks that impact my health, my relationships, my acquisition of time.

THE QUESTION: WHAT IS MY INTENTION?

I recently had some news about someone that could have opened the door to calling a person that I have not had direct contact with for quite awhile. Asking myself what my intention was in calling helped me reassess the call and not make it. I realized that call would be an unnecessary distraction. A step back in engaging in a conversation that would not help me in my healing process. To connect with a person based on sharing information that would only help reinforce my own mental monologue gone unchecked.Covert complaining, gossip and lamenting about how bad thing are. Okay, maybe not so covert. But maybe it would start out that way? Oh, please! More yada,  yada, yada…

WHAT IS MY INTENTION ON STEROIDS

How much of what I say is totally unnecessary? More than less. Stopping myself from talking feels like being in my own Seinfeld episode. Realizing how much ideas that seem to be about something are really about nothing, but when examined are pretty revealing.

Detoxing happens on many levels. It is like looking through the garbage for something you think you threw out that can not be replaced. Who wants to do that? Sometimes it just bloody well stinks.

PERILS OF HEALNG: LOW BODY FAT

When I started The Unique Healing Program in late December of 2012 I met, through this blog, people who were finding some level of symptom diminishment that I was not. A number of these people were able to consume large amounts of clay and seemed to be okay with it. Others, like myself, felt blocked up and crazy from it. This protocol that Donna Pessin was selling definitely had big holes in it. One stop shopping for healing with her products alone was not working for me. I had to augment her program, much to her disapproval, with enemas, colonics and much lower doses of clay than she prescribed for success.

At times discouraged,  I came to the conclusion that maybe I was dredging up some deeper seated toxins because of all the past cleansing work I had done. Something I have written about extensively in past blog posts. Was this one reason that my symptoms were so much more potent than some of the others people on Unique Healing? I was pretty sure this was one component. One thing I am more certain of, those who were NOT highly symptomatic had more body fat than I did. That fat – cellulite was absorbing toxins and acting as a protector – buffer of sorts.

So, this was constantly coming up. Why were some of these people less reactive to the use of clay and herbs [Unique Healing] than I was? Well, I knew I had a  much longer history of intense cleansing  regimens. My daily exposure to mold as a child and the removal of mercury fillings, without the proper  dental protocol, put a heavy tax on my immune system. There were other factors as well. I was pretty sure I had dodged many sickness bullets through all the efforts I had put in over the years. In truth, I appeared to be in much better health and shape than I actually was. Much of that was accomplished – if that is an accomplishment – with a very simple clean diet,  herbal concoctions, colonics, enemas, exercise, yoga, and much more. It was not my goal to live my life on a constant road of cleansing, but I was willing to do what I needed to in order to heal, live, earn a living, and not end up in the Traditional Medical System.

For years I was the person that ate very simply but did not loose weight. I was not overweight. I did often think that anyone else would be way thinner if they were eating a diet as clean, all the juice feasting, colon cleanses, colonics,etcetera. All this was done to have a healthier gut with regular bowel movements and better energy. None of these goals was fully actualized through these decades of efforts.

WHAT DID HAPPEN?

It seems clear now that I was not able to get to the deep-seated triggers that plagued me in a significant way. I am talking about Heavy Metals, Candida and other Parasites. My efforts did help me in the short term to a certain extent, but chipped away at body fat and other precious minerals after awhile. So, here I am without the body fat that is helpful in absorbing the often irksome, frustrating symptoms of cleansing. These densely dehydrated toxins that get released when they are tapped into. Without the body fat to migrate to, the toxins enter the bloodstream and a person can be much more symptomatic. This is all very personal to each individual and their circumstances.

I am reminded of a dentist who was deeply effected by the toxins of his profession. He told me once that cleansing alone is not healing. How to find the right protocol for each of us is the dilemma. It is not unsolvable, but can be tricky depending on what each individual has been exposed to. More later.

DETOXING: INTUITION OR ADDICTION?

DISCERNING OUR TRUTH FROM OUR ADDICTION

No matter who is advising me I always want to keep my intuition in check about what I am doing. Honing my intuition is something I value. If a person is not in good health their intuition can be greatly hindered, or blinded by addiction. In brief, feeling like eating something that is not helpful to my condition is definitely coming from a place of addiction. The organisms / toxins are making the decision and not the person whose primary interest is healing. If I am honest with myself I know the difference.

In the moment it can be easy to justify what we want to eat, or do.Taking the time to ask myself what part of me is making this decision is of primary importance.  Having the presence of mind to do this takes some discipline. A craving for something hot and spicy as a dominant taste in a meal, for me at this time, would not be a good choice.

STOP THE GURU DEPENDENCY. TO HEAL IT  NEEDS TO BE A PARTNERSHIP

I respect the opinions of the people who advise me, but it is important not to be totally reliant on them. Getting healthier makes that possible, but that takes time. Keep asking the questions that are uncomfortable. It takes trial and error, but a stronger character is built from becoming our own guru. My experience. Maybe yours, too?

People often start chipping away at the person who is advising them when their sickness wants to prevail. Finding fault with the person or team that is advising us is a trap that is easy to fall into. No one is perfect, but sometimes those advising us need to be challenged. Sometimes the fear its that we need the  person advising us more than they need us. I have felt this way and it is not an empowering feeling. In the depths of my soul I know that over thinking, analyzing, and ruminating is part of not being in good health.
