When people hire me to coach them, I almost always start by recommending they do a temporary cleanse program, like Clean or Quantum Wellness.
What? They ask. How does that have anything to do with changing careers, working on my relationship, or transitioning into a different phase of my life?
A lot, as it turns out. Here’s why.
When we enter into a cleanse diet, we obviously detox our bodies. We expect to lose some
pounds, have clearer skin, healthier hair, and more energy.
But underneath all that, a cleanse also detoxes our mind, emotions, and spirit. It works
on every realm. Sometimes we eat what we eat to cover up some hidden truth that can’t
surface until we stop eating what we normally eat. A cleanse breaks our habits temporarily,
allows the mind to clear, and often results in insights and revelations. Clarity returns, and
sometimes we can even feel emotional in the process. That’s because cleansing also releases
toxic emotions like fear, stress, and anxiety. Normally when these feelings arise, we comfort
ourselves with food, which is part of the problem. But during a cleanse, we treat these
symptoms differently, befriending them and asking what message they have for us. That’s
where good support can be valuable, to help process rising clarity and emotions.
Like tapping, doing a cleanse interrupts our normal automatic thinking process. Cleansing
invites us to step back and consciously choose what we nourish ourselves with, and to actually
see what is working for us and what isn’t – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
It may sound radical, but it’s not. Look, I love food, and I don’t like to be hungry, so the
programs I support people with are medically unassailable and are NOT about starving. I have
yet to work with anyone who couldn’t complete their cleanse, and who didn’t feel a LOT better
after they did. It makes our coaching relationship SO much easier and faster!
What’s left after a cleanse is your truth, and THE truth. Of how your body, mind, emotions,
and spirit can function when completely nourished from the inside out. And a clean slate is
created, upon which you can more easily design the life you REALLY want.
