Purging, Letting Go and Nourishing You
I have been having a shortage of storage for about a year now because I struggle to let go of things, both emotionally and physically.
This is a common problem for a number of my clients, especially with my perfectionists. So we call ourselves “recovering perfectionists” and somehow that language makes it easier to accept ourselves while we strive to make better choices and let go more often.
Do you struggle to let go? And when you do, how does it show up? Irritability, constipation, illness, sadness?
It’s very telling for me as now I am seeing it everywhere. My home, gmail inbox, dropbox, and even my iphone, everyone would like me to upgrade to get more storage.
As you may remember, I have been purging since the first of the year! So it’s been an interesting winter of slimming down in all areas and feeling lighter and more spacious in all areas.
It feels amazing! Especially knowing that opportunities come where we have space. Wahoo!
I am in the process of moving towards having less to have more. It’s been such a process of letting go. Focused and right action has helped me to make continued progress, especially through a couple ugly ailments AND…I re-discovered one of the best comfort foods ever, Kitchari!
I have been contemplating a shed or garage to store all of my fun-time gear and deciding what keepsakes need to be kept and what I can let go of, like yearbook albums. Really? I just haven’t ever looked back at these and they take up a lot of space!
There is emotionally fullness as well and I want to create the space to grow and expand in all areas of my life. And if there is one thing I know to be true, it is that the universe just can’t deliver what you want, if you don’t have the space to receive.
Then recently, I experienced it in my physical body through ailments which both took me out for 3 days. I so resisted! Why me? It’s a beautiful weekend, what did I do wrong? How did I get this?
I hadn’t had a fever or a stomach bug in over 16 years (thank you Juiceplus), and I just got both in 30 days! Bustin’…that’s all I will say.
The last one really got me because after a couple days, I needed to be highly functioning for 20 clients for 2 days and all that I could stomach was smoothies and bone broth.
I knew I needed to rebuild my gut and as quickly as possible, but I didn’t want to eat anything. I re-discovered an old friend, Kitchari. The best comfort food I have found to heal your gut and calm your belly.
I heated mine up in bone broth to get the amino acids and collagen to repair my gut and move out the bad bugs and bring in more of the good ones. Gut rebuild…check!
I just had to share this amazing recipe I found where you can keep it simple and make it in less than 15 minutes and feed yourself for a whole week! Play with the different spices and go sweet with cinnamon and ghee or savory with garlic.
I would love to hear your comments! Please share below.
