3 Day Juice Cleanse, 2 Songs and A Whole Lotta Love- Day 350: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Today wraps up my time in Victoria.

The past three days have been jammed full of creative expression, full on creation, cleansing and so much love.

I chose to do a gentle juice cleanse while I was recording for a few reasons.

  1. When I’m juicing I feel so much lighter and brighter. This is optimal when going into a state of creation. To feel bright and clear makes the entire process that much more enjoyable.
  2. Additionally it fills me up with raw life force energy, which is the pure energy of love. When I’m juicing I find it quite easy to dip into deep states of meditation and I am much jollier. Gratitude radiates out of me and I go with the flow so much more.
  3. I also have a stable levels of energy which is really required when doing work of this nature because it is so energetically consuming.

In this state of super high vibes I am in very clear alignment with my creativity. Which makes recording music a lot easier and enjoyable.

In all my years of writing and recording music this by far was the most incredible and enjoyable process. I just got to be in my flow and the results speak for themselves. Without the pressures of “perfection” I could relax, get into alignment and allow the musical magic to flow through.

I spent about 5 hours in total recording both songs. I recorded the guitar, main vocals and background vocals for both and to do so in such a short amount of time seriously impressed me. We spent today in post production land mixing and putting the finishing touches on both of the tunes- and I am so pumped with how they turned out.

I headed out to a meeting just as the songs were being finished and when I came back to listen to the final product I was blown away. So freaking pumped and honestly really proud of myself and the amazing job I did. Listening to the guitar I was really impressed with how good it sounds and gave myself some serious credit for how far I’ve come in my playing in the past 6 years.

All in all this trip was exactly what my soul needed. I cleansed out the body, opened up to massive amounts of creative energy and allowed love in in a major way. The time I was so blessed to spend with my family, warmed my heart and spiked my energy even higher.

As I return home today I am tired but feel so damn alive and in alignment. So very excited for the next chapter of this crazy awesome adventure called my life 😉

Creating Space With A Lil Spring Cleaning- Day 294: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Given that tonight my man is home tonight I thought I would do a lil cleaning in our house today to make sure he has a nice clean space to come home to.

Anytime I go away I always love coming home to a super clean and organized space. It’s like starting fresh on a nice clean canvas.

As I was cleaning the apartment I thought I would take it a little further and actually do a clean out of my closet as well. Nothing says creating space like cleaning out the closet literally and figuratively.

The entire time he’s been gone I’ve had the chance to go through my internal closet and clean shit out that really no longer serves any purpose being in my mind, my energy and my heart. Some outdated beliefs and patterns had to go and this time apart allowed me the space to purge them and clean out my mind, my energy and my heart.

With all the mind cleaning I chose to do some body cleaning too and made sure to juice every day and get back on the 5 days a week exercise train. Combining the practices of internal mind cleaning and internal organ cleaning was a really good move. My energy feels back to a really stable place, I’m happier lately, I’ve been waking up early in the morning without an alarm and I feel lighter- like a massive weight has been lifted off of my heart.

So with all this spiritual and body cleansing I wanted to really make some more space in our physical environment so today I cleaned out my closet. I let go of a bunch of clothes and felt really great about it knowing those clothes would now get to go to new homes to people who would really appreciate them. I did a silent blessing on each item I gave away and infused it with positive blessings and energy for it’s new owner.

Now with a clean home, a clean mind and a clean heart I welcome my babe back. I am so freaking excited to pick him up tonight and see his handsome face and reconnect with his incredible heart- and now our home has even more space. Space that we can fill with new positive intention and loads and heaps of love.

Oil Pulling and an RSL 21 Day Pre-Holiday Cleanse Challenge- Day 165: 365 Radical Self Love Project

The other day I read yet another article on the wonderful benefits of oil pulling.

coconuts-oil-pulling-claire-marie-harrisSo far the ups to a regular oil pulling routine:

  • Its an ancient Ayurvedic practice of detoxification pulling toxins out of the body, skin and mouth
  • Whitens teeth and improves oral hygiene (anyone who knows me well knows of my slight obsession with having a clean mouth)
  • Pulls out bacteria, germs and other debris from the mouth
  • Helps boost and maintain a healthy immune system
  • Increased energy
  • Clear mind
  • Clears out the sinuses
  • Better sleep
  • More regulated menstrual cycles
  • Prevents bad breath
  • Healthier gums
  • Improves lymphatic system
  • Clears skin

It’s simple to do.

  1.  Wake Up.
  2. Grab a tablespoon, fill it with oil (sesame is the recommended, I use cold press organic coconut oil).
  3. Swish the oil around in your mouth- like mouthwash for 20 mins.
  4. Spit oil out in the garbage or in a container (oil down the drain will likely clog the pipes, especially if it hardens like coconut oil does, plus its full of toxins so it’s best to dispose of it mindfully).
  5. Rinse mouth with salt water and spit out.
  6. Brush teeth with baking soda or a natural toxin free toothpaste.
  7. Rehydrate with at least one glass of lemon water.

It is best to oil pull first thing in the am on an empty stomach. Do not swallow the oil its full of germs and toxins.

So, after reading another article on the positives of oil pulling, which I like to think is a gentle ‘prompt from the universe’, I asked my partner if he wanted to do 21 days of oil pulling, track our progress and compare our results at the end of the 21 days. I was so excited about working this into our morning routine, tracking as a couple and doing our own little mini health experiment.

He said no. He did not share my enthusiasm 😉

And for a brief moment I considered not doing it. Then I caught myself. I realized if I really wanted to do this it didn’t matter if my partner did it with me or not. If I wanted to do it- I just needed to do it. Ultimately I can have the same amount of fun, excitement and discovery if I do it on my own and it helps me strengthen my muscle of internal motivation and inspiration, when I’m not depending on him to see it through to completion.

Yes it’s helpful to have someone to help keep the accountability up, and I know I’ve got to a point in my life where I know myself to be a very capable human who is able to honour a “challenge” like this totally on my own. My level of accountability is sharing with you lovers.
