Rely on your own Loving Presence to lead and guide you toward the meaning of healing. Seek the meaning of healing and allow it to frame all your activity and to give context to all your interactions. Though you may encounter disturbances throughout daily activity, lay them at the feet of your own Loving Presence and continue to ask, “What is healing?” Your own Loving Presence directs you, as you listen in the stillness.
I continue to be guided toward doing a healing cleanse. I’ve mentioned this once or twice already this Journey. I had thought that I would begin the cleanse so that I would be doing it during this Journey, ending right around day 40.
Community trumps timing. There are now five other people who will be doing this cleanse at the same time, to offer support to each other and to share our experiences. We are going to meet and talk (yes, like a support group!), before we start. We will probably start around the end of June or the beginning of July. If you are interested in doing the cleanse, I’ll be logging my “cleanse journal” on this page.
One reason I am doing a cleanse is because I have been feeling like my body needs to be able to allow more light to come through; it needs to be lighter, less dense. I need to have more energy available to serve people. When I have cleansed or fasted in the past, I have often noticed significant increases in my body’s vitality, in how alive it feels. That’s what I am hoping to experience with this cleanse. I also want to strengthen my immune system, and flush out anything that does not “belong” in my body.
One (big) claim made in the book Medical Medium is that about 2/3 of the American population have (and are unaware of having) the Epstein-Barr virus, which remains in the body for years (even decades), and can show up and wreak havoc in the body, without having any understandable under-lying cause. It claims that the illness mononucleosis is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). I had mono in college, so another reason I want to do this cleanse is to work on getting that virus out of my body (if in fact the claim is true, which we don’t really know, but I figure there is no harm in these thoughts or actions).
Everyone has their own reason for cleansing; everyone’s healing goals are different. What are yours? How are you directed? What do you need to do for yourself, for your own healing?
Keep going! The Journey is not even half over.
