Day 123

Day two of our detox and I wake up feeling really good. Allowing my digestive system to have a break has been very beneficial. I ease into yoga this morning and decide to take it easy for most of the day. We are staying right on the edge of the island. Our room is a twenty meters walk to the ocean. I wake up and the first thing I hear is the birds chirping and the waves crashing. I love being so close to the water. Our resort is on a quiet part of the island on the south western corner.

In the afternoon I have a reiki healing session. The owner of the retreat is a reiki practitioner. He has healing hands. I literally walked out of there feeling so much lighter. He says I have been holding a lot of sadness in my gut area. That where we hold onto emotions, this is where they lie. I know a part of me will always be sad but I do want to make sure it doesn’t effect my health. I am hoping the detox also helps me release this emotionally and physically.

He also said there was some blockages in the throat area. He asked me if there is anything I am having trouble saying out loud. I guess I feel as though I am in a transition period. I have one foot in my old life and one foot in the new. To fully step into my new life I have to let go of some things. I need to allow my new life to blossom. It won’t grow into the beautiful flower it’s meant to if I don’t water it and allow it to see the sunshine each day. I am going to try and be true to myself. I am going to try and make choices that align. I know the only thing that holds me back is the fear of what people will think. It’s a pretty silly thing to be worried about as those people aren’t living my life.

Hamish please give me strength to be true to myself.
