Thoughts: BUT. Hey BUTT face! Let's face it we are all butt faces! I am a butt face! I have had many emails and comments on this blog, people saying "Wow this is so amazing, you are so inspiring BUT I couldn't do it, BUT I can't do it right now, BUT it's too hard for me, BUT I don't have that kind of will power!" AND the thing is yes you can do it!
I used to say these things also. I would say to myself "I really want to love myself and only nuture myself with foods that provide my body with nutritional value, I want to cut out all chemicals and preservatives and processed foods BUT BUT BUT It's too hard, BUT that would be impossible, BUT it's stupid because it's not humanly possible, BUT it would be too expensive to go organic, BUT my body needs some junk every now and then, BUT I shouldn't deprive my body of lollies and chocolate. (Get how crazy that is, 'I shouldn't deprive my body of lollies and chocolate! Why the HHH not? They aren't good for me anyways!)
The word BUT robbed me of my natural joy, power and full self expression. Everytime I would use the word BUT I put a lid on. Every time we use the word BUT it creates an un-reality. I used BUT for 5 years around my health, AND it wasn't until 25 days ago that I declared "I want to love myself and only feed my body with foods that will provide it with nutritional value AND i'm going to do just that for 365 days! And it was the most powerful transformation I have ever made around my health and my self! I did this with replacing BUT with AND!
The word AND changes everything. What BUTS do you have? Find the butts in your life, and kick the butts out! Replace them with AND! "I want to go to India and climb the himalayas AND I can create the money to get there!" "I want to learn french AND I can do it!" "I want to love you fully AND I will because you deserve it!" "I want to be healthy and love my body AND I will start right now with learning more about foods!" "I want to loose weight and be supermodel toned AND I will commit to having this by February!" - some examples! What ever excites you!
It makes no sense that such a tiny little word (but) can have a huge impact on your life and health!
Challenges: Today I had no challenges what so ever with the Earth Diet, I felt healthy, connected and extremely empowered! I chatted with a glowy looking lady tonight, Deb, and she is on the raw diet, she said that to her food is a vibration and that she eats foods with high vibrations, whole fresh raw foods, and because of that her frequency is absolutely glowing! It's getting easier to look at a chocolate bar now and not want it, to powerfully choose to be on the Earth Diet rather than eat something that only damages my health!
Triumphs: Being able to eat pancakes for lunch! Wooohoooo! Of course very healthy earthy pancakes!(recipe in blog Day 25)
