Cleansing is spiritual
When you do a cleanse or a retreat yes you should heal the body with nourishing foods but truly a retreat should also be a spiritual journey.
You cannot have an outer shift of health without and inner shift.
We all need greater health especially as we age. 75{85749dbeb316c0c24e3d1d8256d88d9743ccf0cc93f2eb8c87e0d763618d2741} of Americans are deficient in some vitamin or mineral simply because of the quality of our food. So imagine if we were actually running and living our lives with the nourishment we need.
Instead we run on empty, lack of sleep, fueling with caffeine, and processed foods. So taking a break, refuerling and awakening the more possibility of vibrancy and health can open doors in our body, our weight loss, but also in our spiritual development.
Why bother with spiritual development?
Well do you ever feel like…
~things just aren’t working out for you?
~You don’t have clarity on your life path?
~you are stuck in a career you hate
~You are not making the money you wish you had?
All of these things are lifted and solved through a spiritual depth and connection.
As we begin to heal our bodies our minds and our spirit we then begin to awaken to greater and greater aspects of our being.
When you access this greater part of yourself you can see above ordinary everyday pressures and concerns. You can then lift to a new bouncy a new lifestyle and new opportunities unfold.
I take a vision quest every year.
I create a time for myself when I can step out of my normal routine and lift my body -mind- and spirit to new heights. This is imperative for growth and life transformation.
Do you wish you could give yourself the time…
To really take care of you?
To vision a new life?
To live your best health?
Because I want this for you.
monLet me share with you some of the amazing benefits of doing a vision quest. But first let me share with you what a vision quest is?
Traditionally a vision quest was a rite of passage a ceremony of the most universal and ancient to find spiritual guidance and purpose.
Each of us has a calling a unique voice, a song we must sing a vision we must enact. Each of us has the capacity to live a full life. To be in our joy to contribute to our community to make this world a better place to live. To give rather than to reep. But in this fast paced modern world we forget our potential within us. We forget to look to stop to go deep within for guidance and answers.
For millennia people have entered the wilderness or stepped out of the normal lives and sough the spirt for their direction and for their purpose.
This mystical ancient tradition is one of power and one that we can all learn from.
Stepping with intention and purpose into a new world can renew the one you are in. Often times it takes a shift of perspective to generate new vision.
You at home Vision Quest Process!
So with this let’s do a small inner vision quest right now. Just follow these steps and begin your process of self-discovery.
Take a few hours to sit alone outside somewhere beautiful. A park, an ocean, a forest or even your backyard could work.
1. Center yourself in silence
2. Stare onto your serene surroundings in silence
3. Let every sound every motion every movement come into your awareness
4. Have no thought just witness
5. Then silence yourself and close your eyes
6. Imagine you are going on a walk up a glorious mountain
7. See yourself walking up high and continuing on until you reach the top
8. When at the top look out onto surroundings
9. Call your wise counsel to join you on the mountain
10. Ask for guidance on whatever issue is troubling you at the moment.
11. Listen
12. Take the inner intuitive information and return down the mountain
To honor your first vision quest you must do something in real life to really honor what it is you heard deep within.
In other words if you heard, slow down. Or eat less meat or take a class, or start to run. Whatever you heard it is time to honor that voice and take action.
