YOUR BEST GURU
Do any of you tire of hearing raw people, blown all over the place by every word and wind from "others"? Feeling like they are not "doing it right" or have, once again "fallen off the wagon" or failed in raw life.
Listening always to those who have been raw a long time, or those guru type thinkers, world travellers and island hoppers (bless their hearts), taking what they say as carved in stone,what you must do? I personally am grateful for the forerunners and all they offer in experience, testimonials and knowledge!
I do tire sometimes because it is just not true direction if one looks ONLY to it for direction. Why do we need direction anyway? Ideas, recipes, support, LOVE, inspiration, kitchen equipment thoughts are all good and helpful. But as far as direction in connection with your own eating plan, THAT is exactly what it is, YOUR OWN.We are all heading in the direction of health if we are on a raw journey, the path you take to get their is YOURS!
Honoring each person, as an individual, with their unique body and lifestyle. Bio-individuality. I be me and you be you.
What do you REALLY need to see which way to go with health? An ear. Yes an ear. YOUR OWN ear.Why? Because all you need, for your health journey is to listen to your own body! The other things mentioned above are all supplementary to intuition, which is defined as an inner knowing, a guide in your body telling you what you need.
The body, your body, is always and forever on a quest to heal you and keep you well! Isn't that great? If you tune in to that station and listen, you will learn and help your body to do it's job. Every pain, every body sensation, every craving (of a healthy kind) is telling you what to do next. Shhhhh ...Sit still and listen.
How can you tune in for better hearing? Clean the gunk out. As Pooh once said "some folks might have a bit o fluff in their ears". Be willing to listen and learn. Take out the junk of life. Be silent. Let go of all you think you want to eat, what you used to like, what party is coming up and what cake will be there! Simply STOP all that programming from running and listen!
Once the body is cleaner, the body messages become louder and crystal clear. You go to the co-op and pick up the exact fruit your body wants. You look in the fridge and the exact idea comes to you what to have.
Line up with your body instead of "fighting" this or that. You hear people say "I am fighting this cold" or "I am gonna fight this thing and beat it". Often this is in reference to cancer. They truly ARE fighting it. How? By waging all out chemical warfare with powerful, toxic potions. Everyone gets to choose and choosing to work with the body vs against it is a powerful tool indeed.
What would listening look like? Giving the body life giving foods instead of a mass of chemical concoctions, in the form of junk food or medicines. Note: some people absolutely need to resort to medicine at that point in the game.
Listen to your body daily. Say YES to every food that builds health and simply turn away from foods that bring disease. It is that easy!
YOU are your own health care provider,YOU are your own "GURU", YOU are the creator of your health! That is awesome my friends!
Love from my own inner knowing heart to yours! Muah! Bette B
