What Is Holistic Detox?
Holistic detox is much more than diet or nutrition. It aims to purify our bodies energetically, mentally and emotionally.
If we use the dirty window analogy, obstructions or ‘dirt’ may limit our vision.
If you clean the window, you will have a clear perception of reality.
Toxins create a cloudy mass in our body that obstructs the free flow of prana or life force.
Toxins prevent us from accessing our highest potential.
The Six Stages of Disease
Physical diseases have mental, emotional and therefore energetic or spiritual root causes.
The disease starts with a minor symptom that we ignore.
Minor symptoms accumulate and become severe.
The symptom overcomes its threshold and relocates. It hits a genetic weak spot that amplifies weakness in the body.
The disease becomes diagnosable and will eventually be irreversible.
The Energetic Container
The disease starts from the energetic sphere.
If you don't detoxify, the symptom will spread and overcome the energy sphere threshold.
It then travels to the mental sphere.
If still ignored, it sweeps over our emotional body.
Eventually, it spills over onto the physical realm. It’s here that the disease manifests as the six stages previously mentioned.
Toxins can be physical, mental and emotional.
Mental toxicity comes from taking in information that lowers our vibe or is not beneficial.
Constantly engaging in low vibrational things allow toxins to enter our bodies.
Energetic Boundaries are gatekeepers.
They are auric scans that only permit entry to things that align with our values, ethics and morals.
If your boundaries are too rigid, loose or inconsistent, you invite toxins into your system.
It’s therefore important to recognise your gatekeepers. Ask yourself what your nonnegotiables are.
Make sure that your boundaries work in favor of your highest good and the collective highest good.
Habits That Instill Toxicity
The root cause for bad habits is a misalignment in the energetic field.
Smoking, drinking, doing drugs and hanging around the wrong crowd are some sources of toxicity.
Our body is a physical vessel. But it’s the gateway into more subtle realms.
Any physical manifestation is a result of something in the emotional, mental and energetic field.
Your inner condition or energy manifests externally and vice-versa.
Tips on Detoxifying
Replace stuff that is not good for you to reduce toxicity in the physical body.
Detoxify your lifestyle and relationships. Choose non-violent communication.
Choose what information to take in. Meditate and do more mindset work.
Clean yourself of those impurities that are clouding you and achieve self-empowerment.
