Last Friday, I was talking to a friend on the phone, and the conversation turned to juicing and all the benefits of drinking pure, freshly-pressed celery juice which has incredible healing properties and is actually a miracle in-and-of itself. I mentioned that in my “dream life”, which I have all planned out and involves living in a big house on Kailua beach, I will drink celery juice every day!
As I started to go through and explain each element making up my ideal day in my ideal life (most of which I already do!), he interrupted me and asked why I couldn’t start drinking celery juice every day, now.
Why did I have to wait to be living my ideal life to live my ideal life? (haha).
I immediately came up with a few excuses - I need to get a new juicer because my 2 awesome juicers are back in NYC, organic celery is not cheap in Hawaii compared to NYC, and, well... that’s all I could come up with before he interrupted again and challenged me to drink celery juice every single day and he would join me. I was at first hesitant, but then decided to accept the challenge, realizing that I was resisting what actually would be incredibly beneficial for me!
Due to a very hectic weekend, I decided to spend a few days preparing for this challenge, and it is now beginning TODAY, March 18th ! For the next 30 days, I will drink 12-16 ounces of freshly-pressed celery juice and look forward to the healing and transformation this will bring! With a fridge stocked with over five pounds of organic celery, and a brand new juicer, assembled and sitting on the kitchen counter, I am ready and so thankful for the little “push” from a friend to treat my body with the care and attention it deserves!
To add to the momentum, I have also accepted yet another challenge from another good friend, to meditate for one hour every day. I am using a Buddhist mantra which I have chanted my entire life, “Nam Myoho Renge Kyo”. This chant has the power to transform even the most horrible circumstances into sources of great joy, and completely syncs you up with the entire Universe. I am excited to start this challenge today and report back to you after one month of daily organic celery juice AND daily one hour of chanting! I have a feeling I will see miracles manifesting at rapid speed...stay tuned. Haha.
Of course, you are welcome to join me in either of these endeavors, OR, reflect on something YOU really need right now, but are resisting. Then make an action plan to start NOW, no need to wait. You can do it now!!! (If I can, you can!)
