On the first day of detox, I gave to me…
the most vibrant vision of me.
It’s important to know where you are heading before you can get there. Meeting yourself face-to-face is an excellent and accessible method of detoxification.
With eyes closed, relax your shoulders and unclench your jaw, feel your feet on the floor and notice your breath. Breathe slowly and deeply, relaxing your body further with each exhale. Release your belly, soften your brows. Feel a sense of spaciousness in your mind.
See yourself before you, your best self: vital, vibrant and energized. See you, smiling back at you. See clearly your glowing skin, clear, bright eyes, flexible, strong body and healthy interior. See your organs functioning at optimal levels, your body moving with ease and grace, exuding radiant well-being.
Envision the most stunning, healthy you right before you, smiling and peaceful. Allow any negative or critical thoughts to rise and disperse as you return to this smiling self in front of you, with much love in her eyes. Sit as long as you like with this vibrant version of you and when you are done communing, inhale deeply, drawing your complete vibrant self into your physical body. Feel that radiant version fill you from the inside out, expanding into your own body as you merge and every cell is infused with your most vibrant self.
Open your eyes. Breathe deeply into the new you and exhale a long audible sigh of gratitude for your radiant self. Revisit the visualization as often as you like, at least once per day, perhaps when you wake and before you go to sleep.
Bonus detox tip: clean out one item per day of the 12 day detox. In your home, office or car. One simple item; a drawer, closet, cupboard, filing tray, pantry shelf, the clogged sink, kids’ toy chest, fridge shelf. Keep a donation box or bag handy for any items ready to go to someone else and return any borrowed items you find to their rightful owners.
