Artful Living

This room exudes calm and a tranquil spot to retire to. Although color is my vice, there comes a time for beige, a neutral palette to cleanse the mind & the soul. The past week, I was on a 5 day master cleanse of herbs and only fruits and veggies, the last 3 days consisted of magic potions. Veggie drinks, dandelion, celery, carrot, garlic, beet, ginger and they actually tasted amazing. My senses feel alive, the energy level is high and my skin feels super soft. My sense of smell, taste, sight, sound and touch all have been awakened.

I would encourage anyone thinking about trying this to work with a holistic counselor or a Doctor to guide you through. The emotions will vary for each of us. It is important to follow a checklist to keep one on track and a journal to record events and emotions.

Letting go of things that I thought I would not be able to live without, such as that freshly brewed coffee in the morning and the occasional glass of wine, all a distant memory and no cravings either. Limiting to just a natural diet or organic fruits and veggies is a wonderful way to bring about vibrancy and clear focus to a hectic life. My gratitude level for so many things has been heightened. I give thanks for my health counselor and yoga teacher. Click here to read about her, the fairest of them all.
