Originally I thought this post would be called: cellular bliss: the call to juicing!
Ironically though it's larger than that. Although intertwined. The influx of the beautiful Venus energies in June have amped up the self-love in many of us. For me, these energies are having a profound affect on my state of being--I'm feeling very VERY creative. The more adored we are, and the more at peace we feel, I think the more creative we innately be-come.
For me, as happens lately, there was a quick shift, which I had perhaps sensed would come, but up until then I was keenly in the VOID.
Today, in exactly the same way that I experienced a very clear imperative to juice and focus on my body in late April, I again, today felt a shift and embraced what I knew called out to me--juice feasting for a longer period...
Immediately and interestingly this decision to juice was accompanied by a commitment to dream big and shift out of and through all kinds of sticky areas of stagnation and lulling energy in my life: I felt compelled to set big dreamy goals and trust the clarity and energy of juicing, along with the upcoming planetary and cosmic energy alignments to fuel me to a new life.
And then I realized, it's the call to dreaming ourselves into paradise. To answer our own unique call to pleasure. Because lately I'm feeling the juice within my being of wanting all kinds of pleasure and wanting it NOW. My sex drive is amped up and at first I thought it was from juicing, but I wonder now if juicing was just the vehicle to get me clear enough to flow this energy and feel the call. So I'm knowing that my version of this amped up flow of life is going to include deep connection with others; spiritual and expansive sex; more music--singing, singing, with others, writing music; more time sun-gazing and lying in the sunshine; swimming, hiking, yoga and time outdoors; painting; raw food meals with friends; growing food and flowers; silliness and playful experiences; and even the mundane--new beautiful pajamas, and the elusive--a new home in a city I cannot even name yet--maybe the same one as now, maybe not.
What's so funny is how suddenly this all came on. I had been pondering the idea of recommencing my juice feast. I began to transition off my last juice feast at day 29 (the reflection of 92!) not because of a sense of completion, but because I had a busy travel schedule in June and knew I would not be able to keep up the juicing in the places I was staying.
Since then I've been eating a lot of raw food, juicing almost every day and mixing in some cooked vegan food. So was feeling my way around this, after returning home from being in Shasta, along the central coast of California, experiencing the Solstice, the first Expect Wonderful Retreat, my 50th birthday and the Venus Transit. I was very much feeling the void space that accompanies the deep integration most of us are engaged with as we change on such fundamental and physical levels. And then today, I felt the shift.
So here I go! I plan to juice for 92-days. Which will take me from today, July 1 through the month of September. So I'll start transitioning back to food on October 1. Feels perfect.
I will also be spending some time today dreaming. BIG. It's time to write a book, I know. Maybe more than one--as I feel the urge to edit and collect some of my prolific writing into a new different organization as a whole. Also to re-invent my work in some ways that are already emerging, and to feel into what else is asking to be created through me. I am deeply committed to continuing to participate in this amazing unfolding of the Divine Plan here on Earth, and as the world is shifting, so to is the playing field. We are creating new possibilities for expression as we change the world, so updating our own goals and visions is an important aspect of this.
I feel I will be creating some very ambitious intentions for this time frame. And that the changes that will occur will involve letting go of even more and clearing out even more--mostly for me on a physical level now, but as always I'm sure there will be some surprises.
I also plan to start gathering with others in person, live and face to face, heart to heart, looking into each other's eyes. Doing this in Mt. Shasta was heavenly and I want more. More sharing and creating with women and men committed to their own awakening and their own JOY, and willing to act on this. YOU are my pals! And I'm wanting to hug you and see you and hear your laugh and your story.
So if you've had any deep desires about ways you wish you could get together with others, please email me and share if you feel inclined. Contribute to this big-dream feast.
And, if you're feeling inclined to shift into a new mode of being yourself and/or that you'd like to juice with me--for any or all of this time--please jump on in!
I've gotten a lot of email about how to do this and how to prepare, so if you're considering joining me, I'd say the most important thing is to start simplifying your diet now. Wean yourself off of the most congesting foods--that would be any animal products, coffee, alcohol, sugar and processed foods.
And invest in a good juicer. I personally own a Breville Ikon, which I bought on Amazon.
I've always been a foodie-kind of girl. But I never thought food would be such a big part of my work, yet the amount of email I get from people also feeling the desire to alter their energy through spiritual nutrition has shown me there is a much bigger connection then I realized.
So I'll post more about this, and please remember I'm learning as I go. There are a lot of great resources online for juicers and I'll share what I can and you can seek out others as well.
It's time to dream big. The potential of our beautiful world is enlarging and elevating as each of us dissolve our limitations with LOVE and claim what we know, creating our own experiences of heaven on earth.
For me, it's time. The call to my heart's desires has sounded loud and clear, and I've answered it without a second's hesitation. I'm ready and the time is NOW.
Yes! to everything that would give me joy, I answer and I appreciate, with YES!
