I just finished watching the world premiere of a wonderful movie – SuperJuice Me. Although it did not provide me with new information, it definitely reminded me once again of the power of juicing and the importance of juicing! It also reminded me that healing is up to us, and we have to take charge of our bodies, minds, souls, and emotions to heal. No one will do it for us. Whether we choose to go to a doctor or embark on a 28-day-juice-fast (such as the individuals in the movie), we need to take our life in our hands.
The message I want to give out here is really an empowering one. I myself am not devoid of health issues, and am still struggling to make things work. My emotional and spiritual health is the toughest, and sometimes feels like a total battle with very physical symptoms. Often times I dream of going to a doctor that will fix everything for me, but then I know that isn’t possible. I am the only one who knows me, and as such, it is my job in life to assure that I listen to myself, and that I heal whatever ailments I incurred in this lifetime. This is an ongoing process throughout life. We all have some healing we have to do. This doesn’t mean we have to do it alone. There are coaches, therapists, friends, family, youtube videos, articles, etc. to aid us. But ultimately, it’s our job.
And it can be exhausting and draining. That I understand. The people in this movie, who were all extremely sick, and decided to try out a 28-day juice fast to heal, instead of taking magic pills are not some super heroes. They are just people like you and me, who took their fate in their hands. It made me emotional to watch this movie.
So many people need such healing. And they need to see this film to believe it. To see what you can let go of in your body, and what you can gain. You can gain life! And one point that is extremely important to me is that in this process, we must accept ourselves. Whether we are too fat or too thin, whether our body listens to us or doesn’t, we must find the place in our heart which is loving towards other humans and beings, and open up that place for us too.
Juicing for 28 days – a crazy idea? I don’t think so. Anyone who wants to heal will find their way. Whatever it may be.
