10 Day Clarity Cleanse: Day 1

Clarity Cleanse

Every now and again, I find it necessary to fast and clean house, so to speak. Our bodies are our temples, and in this day and age, it can be challenging to keep a clean temple!

In my work, I find it essential to clear my body, allow it to rest and come back into its natural balance. The greatest benefit that comes with cleansing is clarity of the mind. My psychic practice would not be possible without an occasional cleanse.

I’m a vegetarian and eat very well when I plan my daily diet. But sometimes with my busy schedule, I will skip eating all day. By night time, I’m ravenous and will eat processed foods, cheese or major carbs just to feel instant satiation. Raise your hand if you relate! Plus, with the expenditure of focused mental energy, I use wine to come down, de-stress and ground myself.

These aren’t the best habits to have and the clogging effects add up, as you can see in my photo. I look and feel tired. I’m ready for a re-boot!

Another reason I fast is because it feels good (after my two-day hump). I love how I feel when I’m healthy, fit and clear. I love knowing that I can control what I eat and drink and that even my stubborn habits have no real hold over me. Cleansing is empowering.

So, for the next 10 days, I am committing to an all- juice cleanse. I will mostly drink veggie juices with occasional fruit juices. All juicing takes place in my kitchen with my juicer. This gives me total control to put only organic, fresh fruits and vegetables in my body.

I will also allow myself to drink water, sparkling water, herbal tea and kombucha in small doses.

After my 10 day cleanse, I will return to a vegan diet, eliminating all dairy. I feel my very best eating a vegan diet that consists of vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts and beans.

Of course, I’ll drop a few pounds. That’s an added benefit that causes fantastic momentum in staying healthy and exercising regularly.

But the greatest benefit of all is psychic/mental clarity. My ability to see, hear, feel messages becomes heightened, sharper. I love being a clear channel and can feel it when I’m not.

Why am I sharing this with you? Accountability. Now that I’ve declared it to the world, I have to live it. Added motivation. Thank you!

If you’re feeling cloudy, sluggish or uninspired, I would urge you to consider a cleanse. You would be amazed at the health benefits, both physical and mental, cleansing will do for you.

For more information about juice cleansing, watch Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. You can find it on Hulu.com. It is truly inspiring! Other good food documentaries include May I Be Frank and Food Matters.

Here’s to our good health and clarity of mind, body and spirit!

Charlene’s Clarity Green Drink

(makes aprox 2 quarts – 1-2 days worth of juice)

  • 4 cucumbers
  • 1 head celery
  • 1 bunch spinach
  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 2 limes
  • 1 piece ginger

I send my veggies through the juicer twice. It typically yields another full cup of juice. Organic veggies are best in my opinion, but if they are not available, thoroughly wash your veggies with a vinegar/water solution.
