So I’m doing this cleanse thing.
You know, you quit eating normally for a set period of time, feed your body very low cal, high nutrient stuff and let it rest and unload toxins, get rid of your food cravings & extra fat and water. That kind of thing (I found one I really like this time…done for me, easy, I’ve felt balanced, clear and energetic! Woohoo!)
This is my last day of the cleanse. I’m excited about tomorrow, not because I’m going to go back to carb loading like I was doing before (not the best plan, but you know about cravings don’t you?) I’m excited because I feel free again. I have a sense that I can be mindful about my food and enjoy it as an exquisite way to nourish my body, rather than a vehicle for stuffing emotions or keeping me going for another few hours. I am in a new relationship with my body. And that got me thinking.
Last month I did an Inner Experiment where I cleansed myself of outer influences like books, radio, tv, movies, blogs, etc. I got quiet. And a funny thing happened. While I’ve returned to a little input from the outside world, I usually drive around in silence now, no radio, no phone. When I’m waiting for my computer to load, I’m closing my eyes and repeating my mantram. I’m just more centered and clear. And now the same thing seems to be happening with food.
So I thought: why not do the same with money?
Money is energy. And we often use it, like we do with food, tv, reading and all kinds of habitual patterns, to distract ourselves from uncomfortable feelings. So I’ve decided to get more conscious about my money this month. I’m going to do a 30 day Prosperity Experiment. Want to join me?
I don’t have all the details worked out yet. I know I’m going to forego spending on everything but necessities (food from the grocery store, gas, paying bills, that kind of thing) for seven days.
Then I’m going to start looking at where I REALLY wanting to be putting that form of energy we call money.
I’m also going to quit planning and start letting the Divine/Universe/The Absolute/God (whatever you want to call the BIG ENERGY that runs through all of us…) surprise me around money.
Let’s be clear. This is not a diet (we all know, diets don’t work!) This isn’t a program to stop spending forever. It’s a way to get conscious around what you’re doing with money.
So are you onboard? I’ll be telling you about what happens.
