It’s been a while between updates, and I’ve been off doing every course I can find to let go of emotional baggage. Sometimes I wonder if it will ever end; I seem to have a deep wound at my emotional core that I can’t quite get to the bottom of, and a lot of things I want to do these days is triggering it. Physically, I still feel like I have a cold and right now I feel a little zoned out and have a very slight headache. I’ve just returned from a road trip to Melbourne for the comedy festival and while I was there I spent most of the daytime sleeping at the Youth Hostel. I feel better physically when I rest and do nothing; although psychologically it’s rather numbing and I feel like I want to be out doing something productive and creative.
One of the courses I did recently was a public speaking training course led by Shaune Clarke, who has recovered from chronic fatigue. He told me that he was at death’s doorstep and spent a fortune on treatments, none of which worked… Until he came across colon cleansing. He recovered and started speaking about alternative health based on his personal experience. I’m skeptical of the whole cleanse thing, but it seems worth a try, so I’m starting today. I found details of a Lemon, Maple Syrup and Cayenne cleanse online that sounds the same as what Shaune described to me.
The cleanse will take 7 days during which all I’ll be ingesting is the lemonade mixture. No other food or drink. I plan to stay home and rest as much as possible during it. I won’t be going out socialising. I have a bunch of MP3s and audio books I want to listen to. Hopefully by the end I’ll be feeling healthier, more motivated, and have a clearer direction of what I want to do. I’m told fasting is an emotionally cleansing experience as well, since it brings your issues to the surface. That’s why many religious traditions include it. We’ll see how that goes. To reward myself, I’ve booked into a Theatrical Improvisation course that starts a week later which should be great fun.
I’ll post an update each day to let you know how I’m doing…
