You will be using the same
menu and exercises from last week. Continue with the shopping list as
your guideline. You will receive two more exercises for releasing tension,
to incorporate into your daily schedule, and more recipes for soups and
drinks. If you need to, read through the program from last week to refresh
your memory of the basic procedures.
You are on your way!
At this stage you might have felt some side effects of the cleanse - remember
to keep drinking, especially water. You may also feel differently, possibly
lighter and with an increased state of wellbeing as a result of unnecessary
waste products leaving your body. You can read more about the cleansing
process in this weeks program.
Be aware of the signals.
Listen to your body, tune in. Notice changes. Slow down. Take time-out.
Allow your body time and space to readjust. Get used to the feeling of
increased wellbeing. Just being is
perfect. Practice allowing yourself to be more sensitive and intuitive.
While you are on the
diet you will mainly live on raw food. By concentrating your food intake
on ingredients with potential life force, you will optimize your energy
intake. Food with potential life force aree.g.
sprouts, grains, seeds, kernels, fruits, vegetables, and juice. Imagine
how much energy there is in this kind of food! It is capable of giving
birthto new life, in comparison
with 'dead' food; which has been cooked, fried or preserved. Become increasingly
aware of the difference as you chose your meals. Whether you act on it
or not at this stage is up to you.
* It is easier for your
body to make use of unprocessed food and the life force will express itself
in you as energy. Make sure to get as much potential life force as possible
through your energy intake. Eat as much raw foods as possible (food near
its natural condition). All food should be as natural as digestion allows.
* * Enzymes and nutrition get destroyed at 110 degrees Fahrenheit/45 degrees
Celsius. Food can cause damage as well as contribute to your welfare.
Food of low vitality can undermine your vitality, physical and emotional
health, as well as decrease the immune resistance and defense mechanisms
of your body.
* * Refined sugar products, coffee, and alcoholic drinks will drain you
of life source in the long run.
* Reduce your intake of red meat, fish, and fowl. Instead, get your protein
from beans, nuts, tofu, soy, avocado, vegetables and other high quality
sources. If your body has to deal with a lot of meat, processed, and refined
foods, it will use a lot of energy to take care of the waste products.
The energy received by the food will be busy cleansing your system of
toxins and waste products, and to break down the food, instead of being
readily available as energy to be used in creative and constructive ways.
Your body might be forced to use resources from other sources
and this can drain you. Your strength, vitality, and stamina will decrease
and your brain will function with less efficiency.
Live on minimum food,small portions
of light food will give you the essential nutrition and energy. The energy
will be readily available for activating forces that you normally will
not have enough energy for (your emotional and spiritual health for instance),
instead of being tied up. Existing theories claim that the less you eat,
the better you feel (as long as the food is of high quality), and the
more homogenous your diet, the easier it is for your body to break it
