If you apply the principle – “What goes up, must come down” to our physical bodies, as – “What goes in, must come out”, then I can assure you, this is not necessarily the case, certainly not for me anyway!!
While I have to confess to the occasional lapses into some really yummy chocolate cake, Chardonnay and chips, overall, my diet is not too bad.
I do enjoy a leafy salad and rarely eat red meat, always trying to keep a balance, without become an extremist. Being brought up on a farm in England, with fresh goat’s milk, duck eggs, organic fruit and vegetables, certainly formed a good foundation for my eating habits.
Up until 40 years of age, too preoccupied to concern myself with food, my metabolism was lightning fast and my weight was stable. After passing that milestone age, it slowed down considerably; I took a liking to food and regularly nourished my sweet tooth, in line with my typical English mother’s routine of always dishing up “pudding” after every dinner.
I was introduced to colonics some 15 years ago in Hong Kong with some excellent results, so with the opportunity to use Suki’s services at Alchemy in Ubud, Bali, I saw it as a great opportunity to make some much-needed lifestyle changes.
A few days of drinking healthy, green vegetable juices, eating salads and my diet devoid of any cooked food, sugar, coffee, alcohol, etc., (in other words all the supposedly “good” stuff in life), I started to feel physically different in a very pleasant way.
After the first colonics treatment and my amazement at what passed, I discounted any idea that I was in good shape and boundlessly healthy. I had a compacted lump of sugary material that had taken on a life of its own (everything is energy) and demanded more and more sugar, never to be satiated.
With this gone, I felt immediate relief and re-energised, my bloated stomach diminished somewhat and my whole colon area softened. While I have never had surgery, I imagine the results I experienced could be likened to having a growth or tumor removed. The changes were palpable and noticeable to others, spurring me on to continue.
And continue I did, with more raw food, colonics, exercise and a lasting feeling of well-being. My wife, Lita underwent the same treatment and I could see first hand the transformation in her.
So to explain the title of this piece “Colon or Semi-colon”; I now choose a healthy, active colon, free of toxins, over a half-full colon, slowly but surely poisoning my body.
As part of our spiritual journey, which I believe is not to rid ourselves of these bodies, or desperately seek relief from our everyday life in a blissed out state on Cloud Nine, but to embrace life in its fullest sense in these bodies. In essence, we don’t ascend out of these bodies, but bring Source into and through our bodies and it is through this embodiment, we project out this Source energy (unconditional love) mixed with our character, abilities, and the gifts we have to offer the world.
Getting the body into better shape is essential, not only for our own well-being, but to be able to receive and give out to others, the higher vibrational frequencies that are emanating from Original Source.
Do yourself a favour, BE well, and choose a colon!!!
