Yesterday while performing my morning light work I was having some issues. My troubles began when I started working the light through my abdominal area and down. I felt strong blockages within my body that were now working its way to my mind. I could barely get through two rays. I specifically felt issues with my liver and intestines.
I knew that I needed to start a cleanse immediately! I ran out to stock up on ingredients that morning. I needed to do physical and spiritual cleanse. I have done these before but never to the extent that I was about to try. I know allot about cleanses, risks, positives, expectations… But there is one area I haven’t experienced yet and its the spiritual peak of a cleanse. I am going to update this post daily as I walk you through my experience. Cleanses can be dangerous for people who do not follow it precisely and/or are reckless about it – not listening to their body’s responses. I have a very specific set of directions I am following. This is a liquid concoction no solids allowed. Let the cleansing begin!
This Cleanse is known as the Oh so famous…. “Master Cleanse!” So if you know of this cleanse, you know already… my goal is 10 days!
My daily regimen consist of four cups of salt water each morning, 6 -12 cups of a liquid concoction throughout the day with plenty of water and a cleaning tea before bed.
Note – As you know, along with many cleanses… this one is very famous for weightloss. Although this is not my intention of doing the cleanse, Sure a few pounds loss would be cool. I’ll be checking myself to debunk a very famous rumor “this cleanse only makes you loose lean muscle and water.” I’ll be proving this wrong as my scale measures my body fat & water. I measured at the start and I will measure again, after the cleanse. I also looked up to see what a healthy water % is for me.
Regimen – Following outlined regimen. Feeling – I felt full nearly all day. I have never had so much energy. I could not sit still. I went for a walk twice and did kickboxing. I feel great! Very alive and positive! In the evening I had a minor headache but it soon subsided. I noticed a slight increase in perception in terms of spirit.
Regimen – Following outlined regimen. Feeling – I woke up to some uncomfortable cramping in my abdominal area. It subsided within a half an hour of waking. While walking this morning and noticed I ached a bit which was unusual for me. Mid-morning I had an issue and I noticed that I became very emotional. I actually cried for no apparent reason and I felt pretty moody after….. I went for another walk around lunch and it felt great! Perception to spirit continues to intensify more then usual and more then yesterday. As I did my light work this afternoon I could feel the light starting to work its way again. There is still allot of work to be done. Cheers to that!
Regimen – Following outlined regimen. Feeling – Wow! Day three, ok! So yesterday evening I was a ball of emotions. It’s interesting how this cleanse is working its way through me on an emotional level. I’m sure my persistent light work has something to do with that as well. This morning I feel good! I’m going to attempt a walk regardless of the rain! This cleanse is really working, I can feel it on all levels today. I ended up going for another walk in the afternoon (besides the morning walk). The energy spurts are really amazing. Day three, check!
Regimen – Following outlined regimen. Feeling – I woke up at about 3 am with my stomach in knots. The cramping felt pretty similar to the feeling I experience being a woman but not as severe. Still the pain was enough to sweep me off my feet in agony. It lasted only about 45 minutes, then subsided. Today I started to notice I have a glow. There is little need for makeup – atleast concealer anymore. I went for a walk around noon and in the evening again. Wasn’t very hungry today for the mixture but I still did glasses. Pretty good day, looking forward to day five!
Regimen – Following outlined regimen. Stats – I did not weight myself on day 1 but I did start on day 2. So far, I have lost 5 pounds, reduced my body fat by 2% and my water % is still within the “normal, healthy” range. Feeling – Half way through! Well, maybe…. If my schedule allows it I will go longer. Today I woke up with stomach issues again but I once again within about 45 minutes it disappeared. For the most part, this diet is easy if your schedule allows it. There are a few moments where it is hard and you do question the higher purpose for doing this cleanse. Since for me its been all spiritual & health related, I really feel I have to see this through. Here I am, relaxing after a full day. I cleaned out the spare bedroom at atleast two hours, went for two walks, ran errands and worked 8 hours. I feel really really good. The feeling is not like another feeling I’ve experienced before. Let’s go day 6, bring it!
Regimen – Following outlined regimen. Feeling – Stomach issues again this morning due to the tea I have to drink before bed. Although each day they get milder and milder so I just ride them out. I continue to feel a stronger connection with spirit. I think because I am working on me. I feel more in rhythm. Yesterday especially. At the same time I am doing this cleanse as I mentioned prior I am doing by daily light work but I am also dedicating an additional 1.5 hours plus to furthering my education on light work. I feel like I’m in school everyday because I have made it such a mandatory part of the routine. And believe me, this cleanse will create a short term routine. Well today was a great energy filled day! I worked out with my cardio dance tape for 20 mins, went for a walk, worked and spent the evening shopping with my mother.
Regimen – Following outlined regimen. Feeling – Another morning of stomach issues. To see that I am going through this even on the seventh day of my detox is a real eye opener of how much stuff is built up in our bodies. Later this morning my back pains became so extreme that I had to lay down. After I woke, I went for a walk. Besides the back pains I have pains also in my ribs. I read this is very natural to feel these things as the body is cleansing. On an additional note, I cleaned out the whole spare bedroom and finished allot of projects that I hadn’t had the time to get to. That BIG spurt of energy that people talk about while on this cleanse…. I know exactly what they mean. All afternoon I have been running all over the place. Then when I got home I went for another walk and ended up walking over 3 miles. It felt amazing! It’s hard to put into words but I feel so alive!
Regimen – Following outlined regimen. Feeling – The stomach issues continue. In the mornings it can be very hard to see past these because the pain is pretty intense. But by the afternoon you feel so good, that you feel you could give up food for a very long time!
I have decided today would be the last day of the cleanse. As mentioned earlier, you need to have the time to complete this and unfortunately my schedule will not allow the time the next couple days needed- especially with the mornings I have been having. It’s ok, though. The first time I did this for 3-4 days, this time – I lasted 8 days. What an accomplishment!
Result – I lost 8 pounds in 8 days, feel great inside and out and although I didn’t go the full 10 days – I still feel accomplished. I plan on doing this cleanse on and off to keep my body clean! While on this cleanse I finished half a book and was able to take my energy work to a new level. Spiritually I felt this cleanse helped me concentrate better when connecting because during the cleanse I had learned how to overcome some physical body related needs with the mind. For example – hunger and pains. This exercise in itself was a great lessen. Master cleanse – I’ll be back for round two!
This is a very highly debatable cleanse. Mostly because it is indeed extreme. But let me say this, is no more extreme then popping prescription pills for the rest of your life or smoking a pack of smokes everyday.
