Happiness is…

Wilderness-is-not-a

Where is the most serene place you’ve ever been? Go there for a moment and revisit who you were there…what did you feel? Did you find yourself “another person” in that environment?  Can you even put the experience, the sensations or that person into words?  Isn’t it incredible how submerging yourself in nature can have such a profound effect on who you are and how you feel? What would you say if I told you that you can experience that same feeling all the time? What would you say if I told you this can be experienced by connecting yourself to that same nature through nutrition?  You can revisit that serenity in it’s entirety, times ten.  I know it sounds impossible that such a simple thing could produce such peace within and profound awareness of existence within this universe, but I assure you it most definitely does.

This week I have found myself repeatedly in awe of my creator.  How did I go this many years without realizing what an incredible powerhouse was created in us? I never questioned the power of our earthly soul home, but I surely didn’t understand just how powerful and intelligent it was until this week. One week ago I committed to a transformation challenge that a dear friend recommended to me. He couldn’t quite put into words the experience and now I understand why. I accepted the challenge, am so thankful I did, and even more thankful that he shared it with me.  I encourage you to introduce yourself to Ryan Bloom on his site HERE. He’s an inspiration, no doubt. Ryan, you’re amazing! xo

The first day was a bit of a challenge, but I hung on for the ride thinking to myself, “I did commit to 10 days of rejuvenation of the body, mind and spirit and I am ready to take this next step…I think.” By the third day I began to feel the empowerment and to notice things around me that normally just passed me by. I began to really take notice to the creation all around me and feel that desire to simply exist in it and let the busy world just keep moving around me, without disturbing my inner peace.  I am full of vibrant energy, void of hunger and for the first time in forever my body feels free, for lack of better words. I feel so incredibly empowered with no constraints, stresses and worries. I am able to just be. Amazing.

This moment in time has shown me just how addicted to food I am. (Don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking Cheetos and Taco Bell, I’m talking real food.) My entire life I have been conditioned to know that I must have a hand-to-mouth motion, accompanied by chewing and swallowing, several times per day to nourish my body. I have realized how much of a habit it has become to just eat every so often whether my body needs it or not…do you have that habit too?  This experience has helped me to break those associations and rid myself of the habitual thought to eat something because it has forced me to stop and evaluate why I was going to eat. It’s certainly not because my body is craving nourishment. I feel like a mean, lean, clean powerhouse. It’s certainly not because my body needs energy. I have more energy than I’ve had for years. It’s certainly not because I’m hungry…well, maybe, depending on how you define hunger. What is hunger? Is it your body’s signal that it is in need of energy or is it an every-so-many-hours-I-know-it’s-time-to-start-producing-acid-because-something-is-coming-in-here-and-I-know-this-because-it’s-happened-for-years feeling? Yes, at times I’ve “felt” hungry, but I also now know this is merely my stomach’s conditioned clock which is currently resetting. My stomach is re-learning one of it’s designed roles, which is to signal me only when my body is in need of fuel.  In the process I have lost a few inches which I am definitely not missing! I have embraced this cleanse as well as the physical, mental and spiritual transition that it has provided…and I’m ready for the next three days vacation!

UPDATE 1: Just completed day ten and ready for another ten! I am just absolutely blown away by how amazing I feel. I feel like a kid…you know how we always say, “Don’t you wish you still had that energy?” Well, now I do again and I know from only ten days of Purium that it will always be a part of my diet!! It just feels too good to feel so good and I’m not going back to the old me…young me straight ahead. I am awaiting my products to arrive and so excited to see what Round Two brings to the table 🙂 Stay tuned for more!

UPDATE 2:

This initial journey has led into an incredible life transformation for me, which has led into a healing journey for my youngest daughter who has an extremely rare genetic arrangement. You can read this story HERE.
