Do you often find yourself feeling drained or lacking in energy? Is there someone that you just can't seem to get over or stop thinking about no matter how much you try to let them go? Or how about those folks at work who just seem to drain the life out of you?

Did you know that you have invisible cords of energy going from you to other people and from them to you? Unless you use meditation to sever them, you have energy cords attached to you that you do not need. You cannot get rid of something if you are not even aware that it exists.

The cords can be from a number of different sources - from all kinds of past relationships; family, lovers, friends, co-workers.

Often these cords keep us 'attached' to unhealthy emotions and energy from our past, to people we thought we had let go, or they follow us home from the daily grind. Until we consciously let them go, we are unable to free ourselves and move forward to our full potential.

If you would like to release these energy cords, then practicing the following meditation will help you. You can either read it and get an idea how it works and then do it on your own, or you can tape record the following and play it back to walk yourself through the meditation. You can try doing this exercise as you lie in bed and drift off to sleep at night.

The most important thing to remember when starting a meditation is to be comfortable. Loosen tight clothes, ensure that you are sitting or lying back comfortably and that there are no outside influences to interrupt you.

Breathe very deeply. After a few breaths, imagine that you are breathing out any negativity, breathe out anything that is old and does not serve you any more. As you breathe in, imagine that you are breathing in fresh, new and clean enlightening energy, into your body.

Then work on feeling each part of your body, from your toes to your head. Imagine each part of your body working as it is meant to and being healthy and sound. Become very aware of your body and yourself, relaxing......

Now imagine all the cords of energy going from you to others and back again. Surround yourself with the universal white light, know that you are protected. Now, it is time for you to cut the cords that you no longer need. When cutting the cords, you can imagine cutting them with scissors or a knife. Alternatively, you can ask for help from the Archangel Michael. Imagine him cutting the cords with his mighty sword. Imagine all those, unnecessary cords surrounding your body, your legs, your back, your arms, being severed. If you ask for help, be sure to give him thanks for the assistance you receive.

While cutting the cords, cut them with love. Anger will not help you here. Realize that each and every one of us is just a soul on this earth, here to live and learn and do the best we can. The people that we need to let go of are here for their own reasons, and we are here for ours. In this exercise, we are simply just letting go of their energies, we are not judging them.

Work on this for as long as you feel you need to. If you have gone deep in the meditation and you are lying in bed you may even fall asleep, this is okay.

You may need to do this meditation every night for two weeks, two months or even longer......the point is to release any and all energies that you do not need. Release with love.

The Lemonade Diet

Whether you begin The Lemonade Diet immediately or Ease-in, the first day is the same. You will need to make one adjustment to suit your personal preferences, and or daily routine with work, or family. Generally the variation revolves around timing your daily flush. Perhaps equally important to breaking the fast correctly is the daily bowel movement. It is crucial to flush out the toxins your body is eliminating, and since you are not consuming digestible food (fiber) to create a bowel movement, you will have to make that happen. There are two accepted methods to produce bowel movements: Laxative teas, and the Salt water flush. I will describe my preferred method, including timing and methods in full as well as alternatives.
Step 1 – Awake, and prepare your Lemonade – your daily nourishment.

Soon after arising you will prepare your daily intake of Lemon Juice, Maple Syrup and Cayenne Pepper. Prepare the entire days meals in one session. You will become quite adept at the process very quickly. Take you cutting board, hand or electric juicer, table spoon measure, lemons, maple syrup and cayenne pepper and place them on the counter top.

The following quantities of each ingredient are required (some adjustment may be required for above average sized people, large and small. These amounts are for all the Lemonade you need for 1 day. The instructions below the list of quantities discusses dividing the process into two, making 2 individual 1 liter/quart bottles of lemonade.

* 14 Table Spoons Lemon Juice
* 14 Table Spoons Maple Syrup
* 1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper – or to taste (as much as you can stand)
* 2 Liters/quarts of water

Roll each lemon firmly between your palm and the counter. Put sufficient downward pressure as you rock the lemon back and forth under your hand. You are softening the lemon to make the extraction of juice more efficient.

Next, cut the lemon and juice each half on the juicer (if using an electric juicer you may want to juice the whole allotment at once, since you will not be sure how many lemons will yield the proper amount of juice, you may find you waste a lemon or two in your first few days).
Pour the lemon juice into a cup if it is awkward to measure from the hand-juicer. Measure 7 tablespoons into a single 1-liter chug-able container. Measure 7 Tablespoons of maple syrup into the same container. Note – You might get a kick out of licking the tablespoon measure – you will enjoy the treat and even come to look forward to it. Leave the cayenne until you have complete the second 1-liter chug-able. Repeat these steps for the second time in the second 1-liter container. Finally measure 1/4 teaspoon of Cayenne into each container. Recently a tip was posted to not add the cayenne until you are going to drink the mix because it will not seem so hot to taste. That sounds like a good tip, but frankly I don’t bother. Give it a try if the cayenne bothers you – and it does bother many – including me, but I just can’t be bothered with the extra step.

Finally, fill your 3rd 1-liter chug-able with water, and be prepared to fill it several more times during day. This water will cleanse your palate of the Lemon Juice, as well as keep your stomach feeling the illusion of being full. You can drink as much water as you want. I drink as much as I can, but like anything, don’t over do it.
About Pulp in the Lemonade

At times I have varied the amount of lemon pulp that I would add to my juices. A theory holds that the fiber can help remove build up from the intestine and colon. While this seems, I am not sold on the need for it. If you choose to, in any case, only add a small amount, too much will likely initiate extra digestive efforts by your body.
Step 2 – Drinking or Eating – The Lemonade Diet

This step lasts all day. Take your three chug-ables with you wherever you go. Every time you feel a hunger pang, take a shot of Lemon Juice. Chase it with a shot or three or four of water. Take enough to make an impact on your stomach to turn off the switch in your physiology that is telling you that you are hungry. DON’T WORRY, and remember that all the calories and nutrients you need for the day are in your juice.

Sometimes I take large quantities if I am particularly craving, or if I just haven’t had much lately. At any rate, keep in mind that the 2 liters are you rations for the day, and as such you should calculate throughout the day what pace you should maintain. You want to run out in the evening, prior to your flush, and obviously before bed.
Step 3 – Flush your system with the Salt Water Flush

The Salt Water Flush is very important. Again, I choose to to the SWF in the evening. The process is a commitment of sorts in itself. Once you take the solution, you will have to be on guard, a bowel movement WILL be shortly coming. By shortly I don’t mean in 5 or even 15 minutes, but generally in 30-60 minutes until the first movement. The last movements will begin to wind down an hour or so after they begin. This is a, ahem… crappy process, and so there is really no way to sugar coat it. The next few paragraphs will describe in detail what you can expect.

Using one of your 1 liter chug-ables and your 1 tablespoon measure, mix a solution of Sea Salt and room temperature water. The original book says 2 teaspoons, but I have used 1 tablespoon almost every time and it works for me the same. The last time I did the cleanse I tried it each way (once with 2 teaspoon and then again with 1 tablespoon), and each time I had success. NOTE: There has been many questions about this process. It seems it doesn’t work for everyone. The fact is it will work for absolutely everyone. You may have to adjust the amount of salt to create the right solution. Also make sure you don’t used Iodized table salt. Un-iodized Sea Salt is needed.

Shake it well and move to the sink. I like to “pound it” perhaps because I like to pretend I am still in college and the Sea Salt is actually a keg stand. I also move into the bathroom and in front of the mirror. Somehow by watching myself I can manage to drink the whole liter in one try, and spill very little. This too is a challenge in itself, especially once your stomach has become very small from taking no solids. You can feel full half way through but I just keep going. Stopping makes me taste the salt and the gags follow.

While it is not required to drink the solution in one go, you will find that the taste is such that you will want to get it down quickly. It is not awful, but it is not exactly pleasant, and therefore I choose to get it over with. I also like the little challenge.

After you have consumed the solution, you can go about your evening until nature calls. Some suggest lying on your right hand side to aid the solution on its journey through your digestive track, although I don’t find this especially helpful and so I don”t bother. Now – what to expect.

When you first feel the rumble in your belly and your bowels, don’t go running off to the bathroom. Give it a while. Let it brew! Yeah that is weird to think about, but you should let it build up. You are going to have 3-7 movements or even more. Generally speaking, you will end up pushing out what you put in. The entire liter of Sea Salt water will be immediately expelled. This is because the solution is indigestible. You may have heard that if you are stranded at sea that you will become more dehydrated if you drink the sea water. This is why. It just comes right out of you because the mixture has the same gravity as your blood and is not absorbed.

Of Course along with the sea salt, you will be expelling waste. During the first 2 days you will be moving out remaining solid matter in the digestive track from the days previous. If you began your diet immediately this will be more true than if you Eased-in, and therefore have only juice in your system. Nevertheless, for each day you will expel solid matter. Gross to be certain, but also empowering. You really begin to understand that this process is worthwhile when you recognize the waste being removed that has been stored in your body for months, even decades.

Once you feel you can no longer hold out, go to the bathroom. A word of warning while you wait for this moment. DO NOT FART!!!. You will most certainly not pass only air – if you know what I mean. This is also true throughout the rest of your day. Don’t be fooled or you will be leaving work to change your shorts. The first movement will be rather large and fairly powerful. You will want to flush almost immediately. If you dare, have a look to understand the whole messy details.

Stay near the toilet and continue to move until the frequency eases. Once you can go 15 minutes without a serious movement, you are safe to go about your day. For this reason I choose to undergo this process in the evening, with nowhere else to go for the rest of the day. (Also because I like to have a shower following – and truth be told, I am not exactly a morning person.)

This is the entire process. Just repeat for every day on the cleanse. 3 days is considered the shortest standard time-frame, however I have heard from those who do it just 1 day, or even 1 day each week. 5 and 7 days are fairly standard first try’s. 10 days is a great achievement and will produce far better results as your body can really begin to focus on the deep and dark within. 14 days is very challenging and when added to the Ease-in and Ease-out is almost 3 weeks in total. I have heard and seen many people going 30 and more days. My suggestion is that 2 weeks is more than enough. Longer sessions should be questioned for motivation.
Ease-Out – Stopping The Master Cleanse
The Ease-out process is the exact same as the Ease-in, but in reverse. This is also another reason I choose to do the ease in, it prepared me for the ease out. You will be tempted to jump-start this process, but don’t. Consider this step as ESSENTIAL. You can become nauseated if you start to eat too soon. Please don’t underestimate the importance of this process. Don’t be scared to death either. You do risk some serious constipation or even worse – but if you eat something too soon you will likely be ok. If you are unsure at any time – consult a doctor. My words here are opinion only and should always be considered informational not medical advice.

The most important factor to keep in mind during this stage is to drink a lot of water. Especially when you are fruit and veggie juicing. If you do not make broth, and opt for juices instead, it is important you understand that the juice will have a great deal of fiber, and you need to make sure you have enough water in your system to keep you from becoming constipated.

* Day 1 – Orange Juice – 3 1-liter orange juice with 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
* Day 2 – Fruit and Veggie Juice – or Broth
* Day 3 – Fruits and Veggies
* Day 4 – Regular Diet, however you should try to eat live foods – grains, etc.

After The Master Cleanse

When you are done The Master Cleanse, the next and maybe most important step is to begin to Eat Wisely. This sounds so simple, yet so many people go right back to eating emotionally to sooth their daily worries. Choose to Eat Wisely and you will not put the weight back on. Go back to Eating Poorly and you will – and maybe more! Congratulations on completing the Master Cleanse.

The Master Cleanse, also known as the Lemon Cleanse and the Maple Syrup Diet, is a dieting program created by Stanley Burroughs in 1941 and made popular by Peter Glickman through his book Lose Weight, Have More Energy and Be Happier in 10 Days, which promotes Burroughs' regimen to a modern audience. [1] Burroughs states that it is a detoxification program that aids in the removal of harmful toxins from within the body, as well as a reducing diet for loss of weight,[2] and a cure for ulcers[2] and "every kind of disease,"[2] resulting in "the correction of all disorders."[2] [3]

you will find that many people with "food problems" claim that the Master Cleanse is a fake, that it doesn't work. they're not correct: it works. But just as famous tv personality Star Jones lost a WHOLE lotta weight and then gained much of it back...if you use a method to lose weight quick -- but fail to deal with the inner environment of the mindthat got you that way -- if you BLAME your weight problems on environment, parents, society, "men," whatever -- your MIND hasn't changed to keep up with your body...

The effects of judgment release are often subtle at first, but always cumulative.

Comment by mikal haley on October 12, 2009 at 12:27am
2. 2.
energetically undesirable attachments (like anything and everything, according to RAW,) are real.

believe me --- but check and discern for yourself - when i tell you that such things are anchored by unreleased judgment patterns. Often people are quick to say that they never judge ANYONE...but let's face it. We live in a society where JUDGES and their JUDGMENTS rule and dictate what is considered correct societal behavior...

releasing deeply held and semiconscious judgments is a pathway that can and will if faithfully followed through with -- increased ability to discern and understand, and truly achieve cognition that is beyond -- safely -- frozen judgment patterns.

frozen judgment patterns can safely be compared to imacted mucoid foecal substance, which you undoubteldy contain in your lower and middle intestinal tract.

these frozen mucoid masses attach to the villiand then the food matter devoid of nutrition (well, YOU know what human waste is...)

when you sit on the toilet and move your bowels but leave (you might think, inevitably but it's otherwise) waste material inside...

it leaches into the bloodstream. it goes straight to your brain. and then later people might call you harsh names that i won't use as i see that there is a child in the audience (hello)...

likewise, holding on to prejudices will create situations where you don't know why you said that or where it came from. You might utter things that others might equate with the worst atrocities of Hitler and Stalin -- and you didn't know why you would ever say such things. The situation is: release of judgment truly opens the mind/brain to its actual potential, which as Marc knows, is infinite... computer will EVER outthink a human in terms of potential: computers will remain finite reflections of human intention and focused intellect. "Garbage in, garbage out."

one problem in transcendentalism outside of India (and india of 1400 bc!) is that Westerners tend to "buy it" when they are told that "they are not the body, only spirit soul" -- because then we get the prevailing factor of people whose heads are full of eastern knowledge, but whose bodies are in TERRIBLE shape.

they usually add to the problem with yoga without knowing what yoga was made for - to keep warrior-king rajahs from becoming lugubrious with FAT after all the people had been "righteously conquered."

another rajah was always waiting to assume the throne: yoga does NOT promote physical immortality. it actually treats the material body as something undesireable.

the material body and the spiritual body share space as yin and yang: when they are in balance (which is mostly NEVER in western society) the result is deep serenity and mental clarity, as well as advanced vitality.
