Listener dial-in number: (646) 595-3602. We are sharing the last of 3 spring essentials or rituals that we believe should be incorporated into your life wellness toolbox to ensure that you do not block your Divine Inspired Life Purpose by living life in the middle- devoid of your passions, your dreams, your desired experiences and feelings amplified. The physical and emotional detoxes was designed to increase your physical, emotional and perhaps even spiritual energy and vitality . Despite the fact that our body has an excellent detoxification system, we can improve our nutritional profile, drop those extra pounds we accumulated over the winter months, improve our health by eating better and when we cleanse our body from processed food, unhealthy carbs and sugars we can also increase our ability to think clearly. The second spring essential or ritual I recommend is an emotional detox. I detox emotionally on a daily basis but still at times have a need for a more rigorous process. This allows us to get rid of any limiting beliefs that still is haunting us and/or to look at our part in any moments that caused anger, shame, resentments, hurt or fear or perhaps you chose to fast from these emotions and chose exercises to increase joy, bliss, happiness. You started off by assessing your overall pain body and your happiness meter. Last week we begin looking at our plans and at our actions. We understand successful people above everything else believes in themselves and we took a look at HOW STRONG IS YOUR BELIEF IN YOURSELF and then we examined whether your Strategic Life Plan still inspired the Passion, Commitment, and Determination we believe is necessary to succeed. Today we will look at specific areas and tools to use in your spring or 90 day assessment.Our intention as always is to share powerful, simple, delicious tools to help you lead your best life now.
