Day 5 of going caffeine free


Five days ago I decided to go caffeine free to see how differently I would feel.

I haven’t been caffeine free for at least 20 plus years. For that time I have drank almost every form of caffeine. Regular coffee is too much for me. So I have done green tea, and for the past 10 years, yerba mate. But recently, I became inspired to go caffeine free to see if it improves my state of mind and my sleep.

Here are what I am noticing so far from being caffeine free

  • I am noticing that I can think more clearly. I can actually form thoughts in a smooth and coherent manner. Being caffeine free helps me think better.
  • I am able to visualize much more effectively.
  • I am sleeping 25 to 30 percent more each night. I am consistently getting over 8 hours of sleep.
  • I am waking up with much more clarity. When I am done sleeping, my brain is totally awake.
  • I am able to feel my emotions more. When my mind isn’t jumping from thought to thought, I am able to settle more into my heart and witness how I am feeling.
  • I actually have more energy during the day. I am yawning way less.
  • I only had headaches for the first 2 days. I can still feel my brain reaching for the yerba mate, wondering why I am not taking it. I think I am still detoxing.

I am also taking a powerful cellular restoration liquid supplement with over 174 plant derived ingredients. That is helping me immensely. I feel better than I have in a long, long time. I love the clarity of thought and emotion that is coming from being caffeine free and putting this powerful nutrition in my body.

Before 5 days ago, during the day I was constantly trying to time when I would quit drinking the tea so I could get a good nights sleep. Now, I just go through my day and know that when it’s time to hit the sack, I will sleep wonderfully.

I am so grateful that I decided to kick caffeine. I plan on continuing to be caffeine free one day at a time.

I am also continuing to eat clean and do my heart-centered affirmations for awakening the consciousness of love in my body and mind.

Day 15 – New book, new business, going strong

rawpixel-790897-unsplashI am so excited to report that I am going strong with my predominantly raw vegan diet and with anchoring the affirmations into my chest. I had a very long week last week, and I missed one day of doing the affirmations. This is good. Because it gave my mind a chance to catch up. I am finding that taking short breaks is good.

As for eating, I am still drinking my raw smoothies during the day and having one big delicious salad at night. I am feeling better and better. I am keeping up with my speed walking schedule as well.

Another update: I got my new book in the mail, Heart-Centered Affirmations for a Millionaire Mind, written by myself. I get such a good feeling with this book in my hands. I have already “breathed” the first chapter. This is a book for people who want to use money and success as a means to grow, expand, and serve the planet. When money is viewed as a means of service, and another way to carry our love and compassion into the world, then we feel more and more abundant by the day.

I also became a Life and Health Coach for a nutritional company. I am really excited about the potential of this cellular restoration product, as well as the truly outstanding CBD product. Both of them are making a huge impact on my health already, and will impact the lives of thousands of people to come.

Day 8 of breathing, affirming, walking, and raw eating

mishal-ibrahim-649128-unsplashI am so grateful to check in and report that I am on day 8 of this 90 day journey, and I am feeling really great. I have kept up with drinking raw green vegetable smoothies during the day, and eating one big delicious raw green salad at night. I have also been breathing two chapters of my book each day, and I am noticing differences in my consciousness.

Repeating and feeling the affirmations from the center of my chest, in concert with my deep breaths, makes it easier to keep eating clean. And eating clean inspires me to keep anchoring the spiritual heart-commands even deeper into my chest. They are working synergistically together. Feels great.

Both of the above help me keep up with my speed walking schedule. This is the start of the 2nd week of consistent walking, which makes me feel even better.

Another benefit is that I am feeling a measure of inner peace when I am out in the thick of the world. I drive a lot for my work, and typically, I am reactive and easily frustrated. I have notices a huge reduction in my reactivity. I am more calm, and it is much easier to live and let live.

Clean eating, speed walking, and deep heart-centered affirmations.

I am excited to keep going!

Day 3 of breathing the chapters and clean eating

fernando-lavin-633896-unsplashOkay, so it is day 3 now of breathing the chapters of my book, and eating raw green smoothies and salads. I am feeling a connection, and a difference.

Breathing the chapters is simple. At the beginning of the chapter, I take three deep expanding breaths, then repeat the affirmation/heart-command. Then I deeply concentrate and read the chapter out loud, in a whisper, or silently. When I get to another repetition, I take three more deep breaths and repeat it while tapping my chest.  Throughout the chapter I am taking many deep breaths and repeating the affirmation in a spaced periodic way. Spaced repetition is really important for impacting the deeper layers of mind and body.

So far, I am breathing 2 chapters a day. I am finding this to be intense spiritual work. Definitely not for the faint of heart. The reason I say this is because there is so much trauma and false beliefs, illusions, and stories that are embedded in our subconscious mind. As I drop these programs into my chest and subconscious mind, I am upsetting the subconscious order. Patterns like to stay in routines. So I am sure in the next 90 days, I will probably hit some rough patches.

These are the principles I am embedding into my subconscious mind via the feeling centers of my chest:

~the beingness of love…

~the flow of love…

~embracing my vulnerability…

~connecting with the ancient spiritual sound of Aum…

~anchoring in gratitude and freedom…

~radical self-forgiveness…

~living my highest joy…

~and holding all of life in my heart space of unconditional love.

So, really, this represents radical spiritual growth. It helps us tap into our unlimited spiritual potential.

The point of this experiment is to combine the above with clean, raw, plant based eating. I am looking forward to the next 87 days!

90 day blast of affirmations, clean eating, and exercise

helena-yankovska-408205-unsplashI am super excited to begin a 90 day journey of transformation, starting today.  I have always loved putting myself through periods of practice and discipline – so today, I am beginning a new chapter of physical, emotional, and spiritual transformation.

I have always believed that working with affirmations are more effective when I am eating clear, clean, and high vibrational foods. My latest book, Eight sacred commands of the heart is a smaller companion to the larger book, The Love-Awakening Energetic Mastermind. The chapters of this book are spiritual and energetic broadcasts of pure love. They are designed to be read slowly in combination with deep and profound breathing to fully absorb the statements into the heart. They help us awaken the love within our cells and atoms, channel the energy of love, open to our vulnerability, connect with the sacred spiritual sound of Aum, feel more grateful all the time, forgive ourselves, embody our highest joy, and hold the whole planet in our heart-spaces of pure love.

1. For the next 90 days, I am going to put my own book to the test. I am going to breathe and read at least 2 chapters every day, cycling through all of them over and over again. In addition to this, I will be transmitting the vibration of love through my hands, as I have previously committed to do so. I am on the first few days of a long 12 year journey of doing this simple, daily meditation practice. My inquiry: How will doing this for 90 days help me awaken spiritually? How will I feel after 90 days?

2. In addition to breathing the chapters, I am going to consume only an assortment of green veggies, nuts, seeds, etc. I am going to drink my veggies during the day, and eat them at night. What is acceptable is organic tofu, daiya cheese, protein powder, and condiments for my salads. It is basically a pure vegan diet. I have been vegan for quite some time,  but unhealthy in so many ways. I am going to stay away from processed foods, dairy (bye bye Indian food!, I love you!), white bread, potatoes, pasta. So it is green veggies, like kale, collard greens, spinach, lettuce, chard, parsley, etc.  It is carrots, apples, pears, bananas, and the beloved avocado.

3. Exercise. I am going to walk or run for at least 4 hours per week, as much as possible. This has been the biggest challenge for me, as my day job involves a lot of driving. I have low good cholesterol, and the way to get this number to increase is through exercise.

4. Get on this blog and write about my challenges and victories. Writing my gratitude, my affirmations, etc. This will motivate me to keep going.

The challenges that I foresee, are as follows: I get stressed out easily, and get tired of chopping and cutting veggies every day. I can’t stand constant repetition and monotony. When I am driving a lot, I love to go eat as it helps reduce my stress. So I know I am going to hit walls of just not wanting to go any further. Nevertheless, I can do it.

The main purpose of this discipline is to study the connection between practicing heart-centered affirmations and eating clear foods. Does a healthy diet help the affirmations do deeper? Is there a connection between the two? Can I grow more spiritually by putting better stuff in my body and exercising more?

I want to discover the answer to these questions experientially. I commit to really following through with this commitment. I really want to be around when my daughter gets through high school, and a good clear, plant based, whole foods diet is the way to help that happen.
