There comes a time when we just have to work from the inside out to release old beliefs that form base patterns in the way we think and habits we keep.
A Spring cleanse is a great way to jumpstart your body on the path of a healthier you by letting go of toxins that have been building up in your bodies organs. Winter, is the time of hibernation and contemplation. Spring is a time of new growth, new insights and stretching yourself with no limits. Summer is a time to bask in the warm of the earth and exploring the abundance that surrounds you. Fall is harvest time, reflecting on all you learned and going inward as the earth slows its growth.
Benefits of a Cleanse
- Addressing external and environmental factors
- Uncovering internal emotional triggers, including stress
- Improving lifestyle, including diet and exercise routines
Patterns of belief start in early childhood playing over and over in adulthood until you look at them and release what no longer serves you. A cleanse, whether it’s in Spring or Fall, is a time for deep contemplation of these deep seeded patterns. A cleanse will help reclaim more of your core essences, reclaim vital energy and lessen the load of mental clutter.
In my spiritual work, I work in harmony with the mind, body, spirit connection. Because of that I am aware of my own words, thoughts and feeling in any given situation. If I have a negative reaction to a person or place I reflect on the why. Once a pattern is identified, I can see whether it is attached to an old learned belief pattern. The key to self-healing is to form a new positive belief. More importantly practicing the new positive belief during a negative situation will bring about long lasting change.
“A single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”
What my own experience has taught me.
In 2011, I experienced a natural disaster to my family’s business and spent seven years rebuilding the interior of business. During that time I moved 3 hours away and found myself in the car traveling back and forth with very little exercise and not the freshest of foods.
Emotionally I packed on a good 25 pounds of fat to survive. A year after selling the business and getting back to my own business endeavors and interest I wanted and needed to drop the excess weight. My overall heath was in jeopardy if I continued down this path.
I believe in the body’s ability to heal its self. I also believe that you need to take action steps both mental, emotional, spiritually to go along with the physical healing. I knew that since the natural disaster, I was carrying the abundant well-being of family members who relied on the business prospering. I also knew that it was time to find someone who would take over the business and love it as the family has since its inception.
You have the power to identify, eradicate, change and/ or reverse belief.
