Thoughts: Today I had a photo shoot for The Earth Diet. This week with the opening of the cafe and the photo shoot I have been making so many recipes, my freezer is full of raw pies! The beautiful Roxxe Roxxe who was the photograph of today and said while munching on one of the buckwheat pancake stacks with fresh strawberries and agave syrup "This whole health thing is really self respect". And I thought yeah she is absolutely right, do I respect my self enough to fill the body, my temple with love, health and nutrition?
Previous to The Earth Diet I would eat foods that had no nutritional value what soever and wonder why I ate them - I had a constant conversation going on in my head - 'well it doesn't necessarily have to have nutrition if I enjoy it and I like to indulge every now and then', 'but what's the point if it does not provide my body with no nutritional value, and if it is not then what is it doing to my body?'. In the end I chose to go with what seemed the truth, if it gives my temple no benefits towards a high frequency vibrations don't consume it- stick with what nature naturally provides and hence created The Earth Diet.
I am no way perfect. People think that because I do The Earth Diet that I am either perfect or think I am perfect. I over eat, over indulge, eat when I am not hungry, eat because my mind is restless and tells me too. I am working towards eating only when necessary to support my existence on earth in the physical form and nothing more. Having this goal I am constantly confronted with challenges from my own ego and yo yo from being connected and a sustainable resource on earth, to over eating, over consuming and over indulging. It is tiring and challenging. And I will keep going, going forward, and not giving up. I am constantly stopped. And I stop. And then I have a choice to go again, or stop.
A example of me being stopped is a thought of 'I hate my body' and then acknowledge it as if it is the truth. If I'm thinking I hate my body, and then allow myself to experience that as truth, in that moment I am thinking that, and unless I change it to I love my body in the next moment, I am going to get more of 'I hate my body' in the next moment and the next and the next and the next until I consciously make a choice 'I love my body', 'or I am whole, perfect, complete' and then I will get more of 'I love my body'. I will resonate with things, feelings, and foods to more of 'I love my body'.
When I am in 'I hate my body' I resonate towards more thoughts on that frequency, 'oh what else do I hate about myself? Well I could say my legs need work, and my butt, my face, my arms' and since I am at a place of feeling low I naturally resonate towards foods that give me more of this icky feeling; heavy foods like potatoes, porridge, meats, grains, nuts, nothing light that will make me feel great, until I consciously make that choice to re-choose.
And I re-choose and keep going. Always. For that is the only way for us to be, moving, which is what we all are, moving matter. Anything stagnant is not moving anymore - which is not our nature - and perhaps is death, unconscious, asleep.
What have you got to lose?
Health - try it!
