Is it necessary to go on a detox diet? Well, not really. You can work on your ascension without detoxifying your body and while consuming large quantities food toxins, drugs and alcohol. But your progress will be minimal and very, very slow. Also, the chances that you will stick to your Ascension work is highly unlikely. The difference is like walking up a steep hill carrying 50 pounds of rocks on your back, versus driving a Ferrari up that same hill, with no rocks. So, what exactly are toxic foods and drinks? If you regularly, or even occasionally, drink alcohol or take recreational drugs, I suggest you stop while doing your Ascension Work. You will have much faster results if you don’t have these in your body. Of course, taking these things should not stop you from continuing, or starting, your Ascension Work. Other high toxins are: refined sugar, refined wheat, artificial food additives, coffee, chocolate, meats (unless they are organic and free range), and, surprisingly, garlic and onions. We also ingest toxins from food and drink in the form of pesticides and hormones in vegetables, fruits and meat products. Sea fish now also contains high quantities of mercury. And of course there’s the prescription drugs which are given out like candy these days. Talk to your doctor about cutting down on prescription drugs. If you can’t cut down on prescription drugs, then you will have to do your Ascension work with them. The process of detoxification doesn’t have to be sudden and extreme. Although if you can do it overnight, doing a detox diet and sticking to it, that’s about the best thing you can do. Otherwise what we do is a gradual process of elimination. So, for example, if you have a bottle of wine per night, then cut it down to half a bottle. If you take sugar in your tea, use a natural alternative or gradually cut back on the amount. If you drink 4 cups of coffee a day, cut down to 2. Anything in your toxic list that you can cut out of your life without a problem, do so straight away. Progress slowly cutting back in the next few weeks as you do this work. And if you don’t manage to cut something out completely, don’t worry about it. It will have to do. With regards the meats, the amount of chemicals used in the growing, processing, storing and packaging is the problem. So if you have access to organic and free range products, this is much better than battery grown animals and birds, the meat of which is full of stress hormones, growth hormones, artificial colors, antibiotics and other toxins. If you can’t find organic, free-range animal products, then cut down as you do with other toxins. The same goes for vegetables and fruits. If you find that the process of detoxification is too severe, or you have no power over what you eat because someone else provides you with food, then a good solution is to fast one day a week. Choose a day where going without solid food will not affect your work, and for 24 hours, don’t ingest anything solid. Keep to water, herbal teas and a chosen fruit juice, such as apple or cranberry juice. Fresh if at all possible. Tap-water is now also highly polluted with chemicals, hormones and additives. Get yourself an inexpensive filter and use it for your drinking water. At this stage, watch out for binge attacks! This is the sudden urge to consume large quantities of food or drink which is not good for you. This is the body crying out for what it is used to. Release the urge with love if you can. If you can’t and find yourself stuffing your face with crappy food or drink, then simply say, “it is my will that I will no longer feel the urge to binge.” Eventually the body will get the message and the urges will stop. And last but not least, energize and feel gratitude for everything you consume before consuming it, whether it is an organic apple or a burger from your local fast food joint.
To Eat Meat, or Not to Eat Meat, that is the question.
There is a lot of feelings, judgment and attachment to the views of eating meat and also not eating meat in our daily diet. These are based on medical considerations, moral considerations, religious and spiritual considerations. What we are concerned with, while doing our Ascension Process, is whether eating meats will stop us from achieving our goal or whether it is irrelevant. Well, it is neither actually. Yes, eating meat will slow our process down, but it will not stop it. The reasons are rather simple. Firstly, most meats, and animal products, are full of toxins. While the animal, or bird, is grown in our modern farms, it will be subjected to huge amounts of stress, unhappiness, and physical pain. All these leave a chemical and hormone residue in the fat content of the meat as well as smaller amounts of it in the meat itself. Apart from these naturally occurring chemicals and hormones animals and birds will generate in huge amounts while they are grown under these conditions, there are also additional toxins added to them in the form of food additives, growth hormones, and even colorants and flavor enhancers. After the animal or bird is killed, more chemicals are added during the cleaning and packaging stage in order to keep them “fresh” for a longer period. Some meats will receive an added dose of colorants and artificial flavors at this stage too. Of course, if you only eat small, organic farm grown animal and bird meat and products, most of the above will not be present. So if you are going to continue eating meat, this is the best type for you to buy. Secondly, if you have any moral attachment to eating animals or birds, or even fish, you will shower your food with negative vibration. Yup, you will pollute it. So, if this is you, stop eating it. On a purely vibrational level, vegetables, even the factory grown kind, will have a higher vibration than any type of animal meat. However, if you compare the ascension process of a person who eats from a burger joint every day, but is an extremely positive and feels gratitude for everything that he or she ingests, to someone who is a negative person who complaints about everything and feels bad about eating in general, it is the person who eats processed burgers every day who will achieve their ascension goal first. In other words, although eating meat does slow us down on our Spiritual Ascension, it will definitely not stop it. Being a vegetarian will not automatically start or continue your ascension process. The physical body is one of many bodies that need to be detoxified and aligned in order to achieve a permanent vibrational change to a higher, more refined, more empowered level.
