Energy Held in the Body: Journey of Creation – Day 31

Welcome to the final Round, only 10 days left to go! It often takes more than the 40 days for the ideas (which you must agree are pretty intense) to seep in and spread throughout my life. For example, I have been noticing ideas from previous Journeys becoming more applicable through this Journey, and I have a better understanding of those ideas from past Journeys. “Life’s a journey”…indeed!

I cannot say how this Journey is affecting me, or what I think I have learned so far. Too much is going on and I don’t feel like I have the stamina to figure it out or put the pieces all together. I will say, though, that what I have noticed the most in this Journey is that there are a lot of very physical things happening: money stuff, body stuff, house/home stuff, work stuff, etc., which makes a lot of sense, since it’s a Journey of CreationThis to me indicates I am shaking things up in my physical world; things are moving into their right order. Since I am aware that I am doing something to create this shake up, I am not freaking out (too much). But I do recognize that I have felt the kind of unsettled discomfort that comes with change and transition.

Just 10 more days. Let’s do this.

Guiding Thought
Love is everything. Perfect Love is Original Source, from whence I came. I return to the awareness of the Love I AM by simply releasing anything and everything which inhibits my consciousness of my True Self. I release those inhibitors now, and Know myself as the Love I AM.


Rich Anderson is an American nutritionist and herbalist, who studied with Bernard Jensen, a pioneer in nutritional health, and several other advanced nutritionists. I’ve, several times, done the Arise and Shine cleanse that he created. I am currently starting a different nutrition program through Sunrider. I mentioned above that I’ve noticed some very physical changes going on in my life as I’ve progressed on this Journey of Creation. The nutrition aspect is a very important component of this.

The statement, I return to the awareness of the Love I AM by simply releasing anything and everything which inhibits my consciousness of my True Self reminds me of when I have done cleanses or supplied my body with really good nutrition.  My emotions become lighter, my mind becomes unburdened, and I feel closer to the Love I AM than I can describe.

Releasing is not just using the mind to release mental/emotional “stuff”, it is also about releasing mental and emotional stuff held by the body.

All of the energy that you come into contact with makes an impression on your body, and the body holds onto these energy patterns. In an ideal world, the energy you come into contact with is pure and clean, and its impression on the body has only positive (Love) effects. But, until we change the world as it is now, there is still a lot of toxic energy out there that we come into contact with. The body takes on this energy (especially if you are eating as you encounter it), and unless you actively work to release it at all levels, the toxic energy patterns solidify in the body and create unnatural patterns in the body.

If Love is everything, and if Perfect Love is Original Source, from whence I came, then the most natural expression in the body is Perfection, the perfection of only Love.

If you are not experiencing perfection in the body, something in it is unnatural to it; that is: something is unlike Love.

Releasing those things in the body is a very similar process to releasing emotional gunk: When you release emotional gunk, you begin to feed your mind positive, uplifting thoughts to replace any negative or toxic thoughts and emotions, and work proactively to dig up and let go of any tenacious negative patterns.

Similarly with the body, allow a flow of clean, pure “ingredients” (in this case foods), into the body to flush out the toxic stuff that is weighing you down (sometimes quite literally), and eat/drink foods that flush out toxins that you have ingested.

The point is to begin to change the energy you experience in all areas of your life, and to transmute any energy in your mind/body/emotions that is unlike Love.

I am really excited about my new cleanse/nutrition endeavor. It has been at least 10 years since I have done a really good cleanse/nutrient replacement program. I remember, though, how I felt when I did: I was so high on life. I want that again, this time with more conscious awareness of how my body is able to express Love.

Thank you for being here. I hope your Journey is going well. I love you, and appreciate all the work you are doing to uplift yourself, and humanity. Our efforts make a difference. We are being and becoming the Love we are. Bless you.


Journey of the Heart – Day 29

We are on round 3! For this round, the pronouns for the Guiding Thoughts change again; we will use the pronoun “we” or “us”, instead of “I” or “you”. When you listen to the Guiding Thoughts (or read them), unite yourself with me, and I will unite myself with you. We are the “we”!

Before you begin each day, take a moment and think about this from Day 08’s Guiding Thought: Love-as-light streams from my heart to your heart! We are connected by Love; we are One in Love. You may even choose to listen to this quickly—it is a thought that will turn your mind to the right attitude for the day’s endeavor.


Spend about 15-20 minutes with the guiding thought, and then let your heart speak through words, pictures, colors, shapes, whatever feels right. I’ve supplied a link below to an audio of me doing the guiding thought–use it if you like to create, while listening to it play on a loop (that’s what I do). Scroll to the bottom for my sharing…

Day 29 Guiding Thought

Gratitude strikes our hearts like a bell, resounding love through our being.

Gratitude opens our hearts to Love’s purity, our very own essence!

We experience such deep gratitude for our hearts, our essence, our ALL of Life!

You can download this and play it in a loop while you allow your heart to speak to you :).   I suggest Windows Media Player (I have not tested other players).

I was very attuned to the word purity when I did this picture. The water fountain was the symbol for that—cleansing, refreshing, purifying.

I’ve been thinking about purifying a lot lately. There are so many ways to purify, and they all go hand in hand. When I cleanse and purify my internal body through juicing, a raw-vegan diet, or fasting, my mind and emotions seems to get calmer, more peaceful (and my body feels so good to occupy!).

When I cleanse my outer-body through soaking in a bath for a couple of hours, everything feels renewed and refreshed; all is right with the world. If I go into the tub feeling “off”, if I have had a tough day, or if I am worried or stressed, when I get out of the tub after a long soak, I feel like I can handle it. Life takes care of itself…life takes care of me.

When I cleanse my mind through staying focused on thoughts of God, Love, Oneness, or Truth, my emotions tend to be more even and predictable.

Breathing cleanses the internal systems, renewing the blood with oxygen, feeding tissues and cells, carrying away carbon dioxide and minute toxins in the body, leaving the body relaxed and invigorated.

There are lots of things that purify. Prayer. Exercise. Work. Helpfulness. Gratitude. The question is: which do you use intentionally? What are your go-to methods for feeling better? Because what is feeling better except getting rid of (purifying) garbage that makes you feel bad? How often do you move this stuff out? The more you move out, the more often you do it intentionally, the easier it becomes.

I have a friend who once told me that when she’s feeling really terrible, she goes for a jog and feels better—and she knows jogging helps her feel better. I thought, “If you know jogging helps you feel better, why don’t you do it before you feel terrible, so you actually work to prevent feeling terrible?”

That’s my philosophy: prevention. I do stuff to purify so that I maintain a standard functioning of basically feeling good.

But here’s the thing: purifying automatically decreases your tolerance for feeling bad. Your standard continually goes up. The more accustomed you are to having relaxed emotions, a body that feels good, a mental state that is calm and even, the more you notice when you are not these things. That’s when you become very aware of who the negative people are in your life, what stressful circumstances are, what things you ingest that make your body uncomfortable…and you begin to want to eliminate or transform those things.

All this focus on purifying! Do you think my heart is telling me that there is a new/different level of purifying that I need to explore? I do.
