I am buying a lot of lemons. With time and space stretched before me this weekend, I am retreating with the Master Cleanse. I was introduced to this particular cleanse about 10 years ago. With water, lemon, cayenne pepper and a bit of maple syrup (for vitamins, minerals and sweetness), it seems to do what it says it will do; cleanse. Why cleanse? Why now? After ceremony, our energy bodies reconfigure.

“From a shamanic perspective, your physical body is shaped and informed by the electromagnetic field that surrounds it. This subtle outer body is also known as the light body, the energy body, the luminous body or aura. Your light body informs through thought, feeling, beliefs, archetypal and ancestral patterns, wounds and trauma held within its field. Your life is being created through the filters of this information. The matter of your physical body is literally shaped through patterns of darkness and light emitted through your luminous energy body.” (excerpt from “A Structure for Spirit”)

When we release patterns such as the victim from our energetic body through ceremony, we are creating change in our light body. As we change the patterns at the level of the energetic body, we are sending new information into our physical body. Our physical body will replace every cell in its system in 7-8 months as it continually regenerates itself. To give my physical body the most optimum conditions for regeneration, I cleanse.

As I cleanse my physical body, I bring the intent of clearing any patterns of limitation, any shred of attachment to the victim or powerlessness within me. This intent cleans up my energy body along with it. Along with any physical benefits one may receive from a cleanse, for me, cleansing creates a shift. I am not here to recommend a particular cleanse, detox or fast. Whatever method you choose, power it up with your intent. Dedicate your efforts to a deep clearing of any energetic impressions that have laid physical impressions of lack. Create space for nourishment as we bring these offerings to our next New Moon Despacho. Let us discover more deeply what nourishes body, mind and soul.

Here is a brief outline of the Master Cleanse:

  • Combine juice of 1/2 lemon, 2 Tbsp genuine maple syrup, 1/10 tsp cayenne pepper with 10 oz of water
  • Drink 6-12 glasses throughout the day.
  • No other food taken during this time.
  • Make internal salt water bath by adding 2 tsps uniodized sea salt to 1 quart warm water. Drink entire amount first thing in the morning for elimination and a good colon washing.
  • Come off cleanse gently. Orange juice recommended to prepare digestive system to assimilate food followed by fruits and raw vegetables, in that order.
  • 10 day minimum recommended. I do it for 5. I know others who have done if for forty.
What are you ready to cleanse?

AHO my friends! AHO!
