Activate a Natural High

A year-end fast that has me waking up smiling

Ahhhh, miso

Ahhhh, miso

I’m finishing out the final days of 2009 with a juice and mineral broth fast. It includes miso broth, organic chicken broth, probiotic juice drinks such as Good Belly, coconut water, and Recharge, for electrolytes. It’s a natural high that has me waking up smiling and facing the world with a clear, unclouded vision.

In this altered state, which also includes lots of rest, I’m able to process the seeming chaos of the world with a mystical mindset. The image which rises in my mind is that of a catapeller getting ready to enter the cocoon stage … the green goo stage … in which everything dissolves into “nothingness”.

In this stage, there is the sense that all is lost. However, just the opposite is true. There are a few cells in that green goo that are holding the vision of a butterfly. They will become its DNA.

I describe this in my book, Rapid Evolution, this way:

“We are at the time of our metamorphosis. It is a time when our minds sink into the cocoon of our hearts and our physical bodies fall away. Heart-centered, nourished by our own breath, we feel ourselves accepting more light into our body, light that energized by the life force of the Universe. It is a process like rewiring a house from 120 to 220 volts. Because our rapid evolution is a conscious choice, our brain will create the mental pathways for physical change to occur.”

Today, turning my attention to my physical body, and preparing to enjoy healthy foods again, I begin with Bieler’s Broth which my housemate Charley Cropley ND assures me is the best possible path to choose. Here is the recipe:

Bieler’s Broth

STEAM then blend: Take equal parts (a handful) of the following fresh, raw ingredients: zuchinni, spinach, green beans, and celery.

Place the steamed vegetables in a blender with raw Parsley. Add one cup of organic chicken or miso broth, and BLEND. Drink one cup of broth every two hours until finished.
