Later, in my thirties, I decided it was a good idea to do a five day juice fast at the Aio Wira Centre. I had been putting stuff into my body for a long time, it could do with some help to get it out. Meekly I succumbed to the required practice of daily enemas. But when other fasters started talking about having colonics and how beneficial it was, I refused to even consider it for myself. Having my bottom rinsed out?! That’s not natural, stuff is supposed to go out from there, not in the other direction.
It took another year or two, and I really don’t know what finally convinced me that it was a good idea to have a colonic. Since then I go on a regular basis, about two to four times a year. Below I’ll give you the details of the two health centres that I can recommend, just in case you know someone who might be interested.
Why, oh why would you do such a thing I hear you ask? a) I feel better afterwards, and b) I look better afterwards.
The feeling better is an observation I made first a few hours afterwards, by then having arrived at the Aio Wira Centre to commence my fast. Doing the dishes I felt unusually bouncy, high spirited and light, and someone commented, that’s from the colonic. I hardly ever believe anything on face value, but this keeps happening every time.
Then I heard from a psychiatric nurse that whenever their patients get grumpy and hard to handle they give them enemas. Afterwards the patients are much friendlier, more agreeable and easier to handle.
And the third story is from Roberta Flack, no less. One day a signed mirror appeared at my favourite colonic centre, with an image of Roberta Flack. She had been in town for a concert. Apparently she has a colonic before every concert, was glad to have found this place, and preferred it to many other places she had been to.
Well, you might say, that looking better comes from feeling better, and I agree. It is a fact that there are sometimes ghastly little spots even the most pointed fingernails can’t get to, and after a colonic they just disappear without any further manual help, these little blighters.
Enough of that. The other day I received a newsletter from my colonic centre in Auckland, reluctantly started to read it, and finally actually enjoyed it. I’ll put it in here, for you might like it too.
Look After Yourself – Only You Can Really Do It!
Whether we are consciously aware of it or not, aren’t we all extremely blessed to be alive and to have all this creative power?
Believe it or not, we all create our reality ourselves and in NOT being aware that it happens and not knowing how this process works , we can easily get stuck in painful experiences, mentally and physically.
What, if we could increasingly become more aware and able to create more and more of the reality we want and which feels good? What, if we could move from the passenger seat into the driver’s seat in the car of our life's journey? What would it take? What are the important ingredients? Where do we start?
There are innumerable ways; some have proven to work well, quickly and for nearly everybody in the same way.
We all lead very busy and stressful lives from day to day and tend to neglect ourselves, our mind, our soul and our body. Stress and sometimes our lifestyle are affecting us negatively in many ways and have tremendous impact on us. We get clogged with toxins of all kind and the mind tends to slow down and become hazy.
When the mind and body are not in sync we do not function well and we will definitely not create the reality we would so much like to have. So many of us are striving for a healthy body , an energetic positive mind, and a peaceful and loving soul. However, so many of us do not manage to like or love ourselves as we are at the moment.
The challenge is then - how do we start to change to be able to accept and love ourselves again as we truly are? Only if we are good and loving to ourselves are we able to share these qualities to others and receive these from them.
One of the ways to start the CHANGE is to rid our bodies of "toxins" which we tend to overlook until it hurts a lot or is too late.
These toxins we can experienced as blocked energy, pain, discomfort, negative thoughts and strong fixed belief systems and clogged up waste products in our digestive system.
We only have this one body and mind to live in and so it is very important to take regular care (we deserve at least the care we offer our cars or other objects). Our soul will love it!
Try following these few recommendations and see improvements in the way you feel and experience your life:
• Try juicing from fresh organic products or having a smoothie every day.
• Meditate for 10 to 15 minutes a day, preferably in the morning and in the evening.
• Have balanced healthy meals and approximately two litres of water a day.
• Always be active by taking on at least one activity each day, like hit the gym or take a fitness class a couple of times a week. Take a long walk on a fine day. Ride your bicycle, go swimming and so on.
• Soak in a hot bath with Epsom salts and lavender oil before bed a couple of times a week. This is a detoxing and relaxing bath.
• Have a regular colonic to clean out all the toxic waste which poisons your system and stops the body from being in a happy condition.
• Take time to be grateful for what you have in life and count your blessings every single day.
In taking up some or all of the routines above you will notice a positive change, you will be aware of your power to change your reality. It is in your control entirely. Nobody can do this for you and ultimately , it is your responsibility! We are only here to help.
