A cleanse isn't meant to be a deprivation diet; it's a way of clean eating, and in this three-day mind and body cleanse, I have put as much emphasis on mental health as we always put on physical health. To strengthen your mental and physical health, I invite you to come with a beginner's mind, as we will be journaling, meditating, doing breathwork, and of course a meal plan that will help increase your energy, improve your digestion, and sustain mental clarity. The clean meal plan is a healthy reset; with whole ingredients, all recipes are simple.
Here's how the mornings will go for the next three days, I encourage you to wake up 30 minutes earlier so you can get the full scope of the mind and body cleanse. Dedicate 15 minutes to journaling, then follow with a breath awareness meditation for 10 minutes, fixing your attention on the part of the body where you feel your breath most vividly. Then right away head over to your closest mirror and gaze at your left eye and say: "YOU ARE AMAZING. YOU ARE AN INSPIRATION TO THE WORLD." You might be asking why the left eye, because the left eye connects with the right side of the brain, which is creative, intuitive, musical, and poetic. Now you're ready for the day!
In the evenings, about an hour after dinner, sit down on a cushion or chair for five minutes of alternative nostril breathing (Nadi Shodhan), which clears out blocked energy channels in the body, in turn calming the mind, releasing the accumulated stress of the day. Follow that with another 10-minute breath awareness meditation, and close by journaling five things you are grateful for.
Hopefully after the cleanse you will have mastered some new healthy habits; something new clicks every time you do a cleanse. This cleanse opens up internal space and helps you focus on what you desire to bring into the world, creating more congruence with your intention, speech, and actions, living in total alignment.
