Today I got a lesson on "going with the flow". Circumstances found me in my comfort zone and being less than comfortable. If you need to know why, read my blog entry, Calibration! As my day progressed, I was kept busy with my own agenda and yet my body's healing agenda kept bringing me back to the task of "releasing" and going with *the flow*. I finally got quiet and thought about the conflict between what I was doing and what I wanted to do. It brought to mind a quote by Heraclitus, "No man ever steps in the same river twice, for its not the same river, and he's not the same man.". This is a quote which I have meditated on countless times in my life since I love water, and rivers are something powerful and yet can seem so serene. It seems many of my biggest shifts in consciousness have also been around water...
The Master Cleanse is a cleanse which involves using water to flush out the inner body. The mental body does not have the physical twists and turns of our intestines, but the physical flush does affect both the emotional and mental bodies. I realized that I was going through the actions of making and drinking my SWF, lemonade, and lax tea, but in between, I was forgetting to jettison the issues of control, or lack of control, especially those concerning food choices. I needed to surrender so that after this fast, I would be able to make this shift & reap the benefits of this cleanse on all levels.
There are also twists and turns in our mental landscape. Meandering through our mind is a stream of thought, of *being* who we are becoming, which we either neglect or stubbornly try to direct or control. Often however, there is a part of ourself which yearns for a higher ideal and in not recognizing that, we can become our own worst enemy. We can be masters at dimissing the inspiration and the imagination which fuel our intent to make the changes in our life that we wish to see. We pay lip service to our desires and imagine it in a far off, *someday*, mentality. The Master Cleanse can be very transformative and exceptionally healing if we allow ourselves to be present in the process of going with the flow and using the time we are fasting to *clean* out old thinking patterns and behaviors which no longer serve us. I intend to use this time to change my mind & body for the better and to embrace it with gratitude and self-love.
Prayer of Acceptance
I accept myself completely. I accept my strengths and my weaknesses, my gifts and my shortcomings, my good points and my faults. I accept myself completely as a human being. I accept that I am here to learn and grow, and I accept that I am learning and growing. I accept the personality I've developed, and I accept my power to heal and change. I accept myself without condition or reservation. I accept that the core of my being is goodness and that my essence is love, and I accept that I sometimes forget that. I accept myself completely, and in this acceptance I find an ever-deepening inner strength. From this place of strength, I accept my life fully and I open to the lessons it offers me today. I accept that within my mind are both fear and love, and I accept my power to choose which I will experience as real. I recognize that I experience only the results of my own choices. I accept the times that I choose fear as part of my learning and healing process, and I accept that I have the potential and power in any moment to choose love instead. I accept mistakes as a part of growth, so I am always willing to forgive myself and give myself another chance. I accept that my life is the expression of my thought, and I commit myself to aligning my thoughts more and more each day with the Thought of Love. I accept that I am an expression of this Love. Love's hands and voice and heart on earth. I accept my own life as a blessing and a gift. My heart is open to receive, and I am deeply grateful. May I always share the gifts that I receive fully, freely, and with joy.
