Now for more juicy stuff…
Before I start though I want to make it very clear that I’m one of the luckiest people I know. I have lived a very blessed life and been able to do many things that others might only dream of. That said, until 4 years ago, I also struggled with a life in which I often felt numb; one in which I felt like I was sleep walking. It wasn’t the life I came here to live and I often used food to drown out that little “tapping on my shoulder” or in the pit of my stomach that suggested “You’re here to do more, Emma”.
For so long I didn’t have the energy, zest, head space or inner confidence that would grant me the courage to do “my thing” because my mind was so consumed with what I thought I could and couldn’t eat, and how to exercise it off if I did eat it… it left me no room for getting clear on what I was really here to do – teach other women who also know they’re here to do something bigger than what they’re doing now, how to ignite their energy, and release the weight and excuses holding them back by helping them discover the power of real food and beautiful self care.
It was about 4 years ago, after reading a collection of nutrition books about the effects of food on the body, mind and spirit that a light switched on for me. I began experimenting for myself what it meant for my unique body to have less meat, not eat dairy, not have sugar rule my world, ditch the junk and eat lots and lots more veggies and how eating more raw food, juices and smoothies, could change the way I felt, thought and looked. And how yoga, instead of pounding pavements like a mad-woman before dawn, could make my soul sing, ground me and give me the courage to step outside my comfort zone and seize my life. The results were incredibly real:
- I changed the shape of my body – those annoying last 10 pounds and jiggly bits that seem to hang around for so many women, as a beautiful testament to bearing children, melted away.
- A chaotic menstrual cycle that had completely stopped at one point for nearly a year, reappeared after a completing a special yogic detox (please contact me about this special protocol if you are experiencing something similar) and I now have a cycle which I welcome exactly every 28 days, which made an amazing difference to how I felt.
- My energy became such that I rarely now need more than 7hrs sleep, and often go all day on less.
- Recurring sinus infections stopped.
- My skin and hair brightened and lost that dull, lack-lustre appearance.
- Cellulite, and dimply thighs, seriously reduced to near nothing.
- My taste buds changed and I stopped craving sugar.
Sugar no longer ruled my world – one in which I would wake up and start scheming about how I was going to get my sugar-fix(s) that day… hmmm, if I skip breakfast then I can have my favourite piece of chocolate cake on the way home from dropping off my little boy at pre-school. If I have a salad for lunch then I won’t feel guilty about enjoying dinner and drinks out with the girls tonight. If I flush the rest of this brownie, biscuit, tub of ice-cream down the toilet, then I can relax because it’s gone, at least for now… And the scary part was no one knew because I was so good at hiding it (can anyone relate?). Sugary sweet food and how I could exercise it off used to rule my days – no wonder I had no time to think about what I was really here to do – and how that would truly fulfil me.
Anyway, as I began changing my diet I found it easier to relax around food – eating “cleanly” (ie. ditching the gluten, sugar, dairy, refined & processed foods, caffeine , meat and alcohol… the last 2 at least initially but now I have both occasionally) allowed the brain fuzz and white noise to drop away, and I could start tapping into my body’s own intuition about what to eat to make it feel energised and alive! My mind began to focus and the clarity I received was like becoming a tuning fork for Source energy… hmm, I know, it does sound a little woo-woo. Let’s just put it this way, I began to realise that numbing out on “food comas” was actually a way of self-sabotaging and putting my life on hold – not seizing it, and making it my own… and golly Miss Molly did it feel great to stop doing that!
