So, about 6ish years ago, I had the intuitive hit to go vegan. And gluten free. At first I thought it was just to go vegetarian, but then it came through no, take out dairy and eggs too, and soy. So I gave it some thought, and made no changes. Went to the grocery store one day, and it came through again loud and clear, but I looked at my cart and I was like seriously Angels?! Like everything is meat and dairy and a few veggies in here! This just can't be right!
Went along my merry way. Eating all the meat and dairy. And eggs.
Fast forward 6ish years. After weight gain, suffering from constant body aches and pains, feeling like I was pulling myself out of a coma from sleep each day, doing all the things still, but with pain and exhaustion. Went to the doc for high blood pressure and worries about heart disease (motivated by being a single mama and wondering if something happens to me, who would take care of my kiddo). All the feels right there.
So I got the guts up to see a doc, and turned out, the blood pressure was super high, but no other signs of heart disease (thankfully!) but I had diabetes that had been out of control and undiagnosed for oh, about 6ish years. And what was my intuitive hit that came through when I tuned in? To cut meat, dairy, eggs, and gluten out of my diet. To add in more fruits and veggies. To cut out sweets. To make veggie broth (like I've done for years now) but to drink a quart of it each day. To drink lemon water first thing. I finally had confirmation as to why alcohol and caffeine made me feel so sick (so I did cut those out years ago because who wants to feel like their heart is going to explode or they are gonna vomit? Not me!)
The difference is, this time I followed this guidance. I made the choice this is how I'm going to address this. And not only will I manage this health issue, but I will heal in the process and eliminate the issue.
I made a plan, and within a week, I had the groceries and recipes ready to go to make the transition as easy as possible.
I had to commit to making this change. I had to commit to being open to finding New favorite dishes and foods after a lifetime of loving hamburgers and ice cream best. I had to let go of foods that had historically brought me a sense of comfort. I had to be open to newness on all fronts--where to order in, what to buy at the grocery store, what to have on hand so when hungry struck I wouldn't be stuck with old choices that brought me results I already knew I didn’t want more of!
Anyway, in four months time, all my blood work came back normal. Blood pressure normal. Weight down significantly. Pains mostly gone. Headaches almost never when they had been daily. Easier to wake up. Better energy throughout the day.
We are holographic beings, so what we do in one life area reflects to all others. Not only has my health significantly improved, but in that same sixish years, I've been doing Soul-Level Healing work. And since I made these changes to my lifestyle, I also started having more new clients come in. I started getting even more detailed downloads on how to serve each of them. I made new friends. I stood in my power and center more easily. I chose ME when needed and noticed when I was doing too much for others.
Following the guidance that came through about changes to my lifestyle and diet took courage. It was not a way of life I grew up with. It wasn't comfortable. I didn't know all the recipes and tips and tricks I have picked up in the last 4 months. (I seriously have feelings for a food processor I didn't even know I needed before). Things were new. And I had to get comfortable not knowing. I had to get comfortable that I was making the changes and trusting that the changes in my health would follow. (Because believe me at times, it felt like what if it wasn’t doing enough?!) I had to hold fast to my commitment to myself to get through times of resistance.
And of course, the last sixish years had a lot of hardship, and who knows how much of it could have been avoided if I would have followed the simple guidance about my diet years ago.
Our intuition not only takes us where we want to go, but it also protects us. It takes us on the most direct route. And each choice can affect so much more than we are aware of.
Set the intention, make the commitment, continue through resistance and notice it as it comes in.
What are you committing to today?
So much love to you,
