What Can You Cleanse In Your Life?

What Can You Cleanse In Your Life?

This morning I woke up feeling emptier than I have in a long time. Like an empty vessel ready to be filled up with pure goodness. I’m in the midst of a 21-Day Green Juice Cleanse to spiritually, emotionally, and physically cleanse myself of things I no longer want. I’m cleansing away everything from grief to patterns to Big Fat Lies to old ways of being that no longer serve me. And I’m welcoming in messages of what’s next for me in fulfilling my highest calling. Uh huh. Oh yeah!

This is the first time I’ve ever done anything as radical as this….in fact those of you that have known me for a long time know that I’ve often looked down upon cleansing and the like, thinking it was far too out there and woo-woo for me! Fast forward 10 years and here I am, sipping my green juice, contemplating my life purpose and doing a soul check in (and longing for a three course meal!).

So what changed? Well, for starters I’ve surrounded myself with a tribe of fellow authors, speakers, and coaches that do sh*t like this. And when my dear friend and mastermind buddy, Dr. Lissa Rankin, shared with me why she cleanses multiple times a year and gifted me with her amazing Green Juice cleanse program, my ears perked up. (BTW, stay tuned for exciting news from Lissa and I tomorrow where you can get access to our Visionary Ignition Switch Red Hot Secrets webinar gratis…woot!). Lissa is an MD after all and is the picture of vibrant health. Add in my soul sister and partner at Inner Mean Girl Reform School, Christine Arylo, who cleanses too and I felt compelled to at least try it. If you want to see how it all goes down, I promise to write a few more posts about it on my blog, so feel free to check in there or on my Facebook page. I’ll give you the scoop!

So I’m curious, dear one, what are you ready to cleanse yourself of? What if you could declare right here and now that you’re going to rid yourself of ONE THING in your life that no longer serves you? Is it a Big Fat Lie like “I’m not enough” or “I don’t belong”? Is it a self-destructive habit like smoking or over-eating or over-spending? Is it a relationship that you know, in your soul, isn’t right?

I invite you to take a deep breath and make a commitment right here and now to cleanse that ONE THING out of your life. To release it. Go public with your commitment here.

With green juice and so much love,




P.S. Won’t you use this energy with me? It is almost time for the “back to school” energy, so NOW is a great time to cleanse and release. Let me know your thoughts here.

Getting rid of the negative people in my life,is a cleanse,except it's everyone and we're either related or acquainted,so no luck there.What if your whole culture is negative,and you haven't known to live any other way,all your life?Where does one go?

Cleansing is good for the body and soul. However, it is most important not to start adding back garbage or it will be to no avail. I have done a lot of cleansing during my life. I did an ultra long one for spiritual reasons...I did not know, when I started it that I would go 40 days on 3 glasses of water daily. I aked the Creator to bless every drop by holding my hands over the water and puting my mind in harmony with the Maker...and I had total energy for the 40 days. I found the truth of..."Man does not live by bread (food) alone." However, I learned a very great lesson, when I broke it...all the information that I had read on the subject was wrong. I lost 20 lbs in 40 days...and even when I started eating a lot...the food went right through me...I couldn't assimilate it...and I dropped ten lbs. more...and then wound up in the hospital being fed liquid protein (HFCS). I have not tried doing this again...I just go on pure fruit and vegetables and nothing else in order to cleanse. The spiritual fast did work...I found lots of answers because I did it in 1984 and eventually wrote a book years later.

I don't know about green (kale? spinach? seaweed? ) no clues...I don't know if I could commit to 3 weeks of nothing but...hmmm

Apparently, the correct answer would appear to be the colon.
