Rainoshek’s Daily Tips:

You are in the ebb and flow of life! Read this beautiful snippet from the blog of Carrie:

Our thoughts, the universe, the ocean, our bodies - all subject and privilege to the magnificent process of spanda (pulsation), a rhythmic contraction and expansion that gives dynamism to this life, gives us something to push and pull against.

The experience of feasting bares this cycle to its bones, leaving no question as to the mechanism of the action. Who doesn't feel the rollercoaster of emotions that are sometimes coaxed, and sometimes explode from their being (well, I'll speak for myself, that's always safer). I certainly did - high one day, low the next.

The belly filling and emptying of juice, to say nothing of a newfound depth of appreciation for the palpable rhythms of the colon... There is no end to the respiration, no fixed or finished point, just a continuing conversation. On a larger scale, the time of feasting served as a contraction for me, a binding to specific parameters for a closely defined purpose, and now I find myself in the expansion again (as one always must), and the universe is asking me what my new parameters are. Left to their own devices, they could go anywhere, they are for sale, vulnerable to the nearest, loudest, most clever advertisers. This is why I have spent years in passionate search for a nutritional education, a paradigm that serves my intellect and emotional capacity as much as it does my body, so that I can navigate with informed choice through the clamor of competing philosophies, at peace with my being. I have a deep trust in the choices my body makes, and I feel this was only strengthened, and the integrity solidified, in the course of Juice Feasting.

Personal Journal:

This morning started off strong, rolling quickly off the other side of things as the day progressed. According to Dr. Richard Anderson, “The day prior to a healing crisis we usually feel terrific. Apparently, the body uses that energy to release something, for the crisis usually occurs after we hit the peak of energy; the next day is usually the day it begins.” I feel as though this has been happening for me, with emotional healing.

I have felt weepy all afternoon, my ego fighting to gain some ground over my blossoming bliss with thoughts such as “I shouldn’t do this Juice Feast, I don’t want anything to change, I was happy just the way I was, I actually was a lot happier even when I was overweight and at odds with the life I was living, at least then I was safe, I really should just run away from all this, I don’t want to loose any weight, I want to be slow and weighed down, this is too much to handle!!” and on and on it went.

Despite all that I tried to do, nothing would console these thoughts but to cry, and let them out. I am aware of this as a wonderful thing, I am aware of my ego, or pain body as Eckhart Tolle says, popping up and saying “don’t forget me” and in so recognizing it I am allowing it to fade. I tried, out of habit, all afternoon, to struggle against these thoughts that of course are not my genuine wishes, but found in the end that I had to accept them as part of myself, as part of my past, and love them just the way they are, and then decide that they no longer serve me. Allowing them to move away from standing between me and my source. Fluff, puff, blow the house down!!


It is just about that time of month for me, and so I am sure this is part of the picture, making me so hungry all day! I was a juice guzzler all day!

I finally had a chance to dive into Anastasia last night, and what a wonderful world I feel my eyes have been opened to! This has happened to me over and over, ever since I went raw, that I am presented with a new way of thinking, new possibilities, beautiful new concepts and paradigms, beginning with the greatest paradigm shift of all: that I could live on raw food! Once you begin the expansion of your being, it seems there is no end, o joyous discovery!

We had a loss in the family this morning: David’s well used Juiceman juicer finally passed away, a significant piece of its lid breaking off and rendering it useless right in the middle of a grapefruit juice marathon. Not a peep of complaint from David, these things happen for a reason, and this case our first experience of supernatural aid came knocking at the door! She came bearing flowers, beautiful blue ones, hyacinth with a sweet scent, she called them nose candy for we who are in juice land. We shared our broken juicer story and she said, "oh well we have three in our house, why don’t you come and choose one!" Of course. So we ended up borrowing a Green Star and a Breville Juice Fountain, and our kitchen is once again fully equipped to make juice for the Juice Feast! Thank you dear fairy sweet Michella, we love you!

May all your dreams be sweet and juicy!!

With love,

David and Katrina

Oh Katrina and David...you are flowing in the sea of sweet syncronicity! I am so happy that you were able to borrow not just one, but two juicers! Your juice fairy deserves praise for her generosity and praise to you for facing your emotions and recognizing them just as they are. This old pain body does try to scratch at us and wants to hold on to the old safe patterns of less that what the perfection of Creation has for us. It is lovely to be on this adventure, this hero's journey, with you!
Tons of Love to you....

I am right there with you approaching that time of the month any moment now,and serious weepiness. I understand now why some people might prefer to live in fat bodies and die early rather than face their locked up emotions releasing from their bodies. Thankfully I can still see the bigger picture and I know that this too shall pass. I have organically caught onto the pattern of super energetic on top of the world blissful experiences being readily followed by a low over the past 37days. Do something really nice for yourself today Katrina. Maybe David could give you a long massage. Being touched can help us to fully release what is so clearly wanting our attention. Lots of love and a tear or two in empathy.

How amazing that (in Jasmuheen words) the Universe unfolds gracefully at your feet, It must mean that what you are doing is good for human evolution. How exciting!!
I can totally relate to the emotional detox, there have been some intense moments when I have felt it just like you described it, it feels good to know now that those moments passed, and others that might come will pass too, I have also had very good moments in this journey.

Thanks for all the videos and for sharing your experiences.
