Conscious Cleanse

As part of my continued effort to improve my relationship with my body and increase my body awareness I have really fallen in love with Yoga.  It’s such a beautiful art and I am very happy that I have began to practice more consistently. I came across an ad for the Gaiam TV Conscious Cleanse about a month ago and was vaguely interested but didn’t look into it seriously.  Long story short, it lingered in the back of my mind and resurfaced at the (always) perfect time.

I decided today would be the perfect day to begin.  It is the first day of a new month which gives me that “fresh start” vibe. Also, the blue moon yesterday allowed me to capitalize on my desire to usher out things that no longer serve the person I am growing into(namely my not-always-so-clean eating habits).

Gaiam TV offers their service for $.99 the first month, if you enjoy the service there’s a monthly subscription fee.

What I was expecting: I knew Gaiam was a brand that sold yoga and fitness equipment but that was pretty much it,  I thought it was strictly an online yoga subscription so in my mind, I was going to do the month and then cancel the subscription. (yeah I know, it’s kinda terrible but I’m being honest lol.)

What it is: Oh baby!??! It’s like the hippie’s version of Netflix!!!! How am I just discovering this awesomeness!??! It does have yoga workouts but it also has meditations, documentaries, reading materials and so much more!!!! I definitely look forward to feeling out the website during this trail 😀

Here is the link that gives the details of the cleanse

Although I am only on day one I can say I appreciate the structure of the cleanse. It gives you a good variety of options on food you can eat, slowly eases you into the clean eating, encourages you to drink more water and the first day of yoga was inspiring.

Here is to 14 days to a more fit version of me 😀

Thanks Birdie!

I have been fortunate enough to be really attuned to the universe as such the universe has been so amazing to me! I am always fortunate to come in contact with such brilliant co-creators through all of the synchronicites of my everyday life. For this reason I wanted to take the moment to send a huge amount of Love and Gratitude to Birdie R. ❤

I have always struggled with my relationship to my physical body. Before my spiritual awakening I did not treat it very kindly, they say you are always going to be your worst critic and in this case it’s 100% true. I could stand in a mirror and right from the top instead of seeing this wondrous creation that brings me the ability to experience this physical world I would see the lumps, bumps, and stretch marks; what I didn’t like, what needed to improve, and all the other negative thoughts anyone could possibly imagine.

To make a long story short at some point I decided enough was enough and that I should consider trying to be more kind and gentle with my body instead of always giving it grief. In part of that I started trying to say positive affirmations regarding my body and putting love into my water.

I then came across something written by Birdie called “I Desire Body Awareness” which brings me to why I felt the need to write this love letter. Birdie gave me the words I needed to access the beginning of a beautiful relationship with my body. I feel as if that statement opened up the missing link that I needed in order to release all resistance and negativity towards my body!! I feel wonderful in my skin and about how I look physcially which I can say for the first time in my life 🙂 I’m no longer obsessed with the number on the scale or the size of my jeans and the irony being since this soul resonance I’ve lost weight!! I will continue to love my body and treat it with care thanks again Birdie for your beautiful spirit I’m so glad to have come in contact with you 😀
