Now you see it...

...Now you don't! (this was Steve's creative mastery 'post-watermelon-inspiration'!)

So… today we got up mega early and made our weekly expedition to Scotlandwell to gather over 40 liters of spring water.
This should do us about a week.
I heard a rumor last week there are talks of this spring becoming privatized…
Sadly, this came as no surprise after watching this film last week:


I for one will be actively protesting the privatization of Scotlandwells’ spring, if it does start to happen, will keep you posted on any developments.
It was such a gorgeous morning, the clouds lifted and the sun shone across the surrounding hills of Loch Leven.
We were also blessed with the sight of a beautiful deer with it’s little white bobbing tail in a field next to the spring!
Ah the joys of Spring…. FINALLY!
It feels like this winter was never going to back down.
But as it does start to look at least a little more summery out there, perhaps we will all start to think about a real Spring clean…
I don’t just mean dusting around the corners of your house either…
Remembering that you are the most important thing in the universe, number one…
It’s time to have a look a little deeper at how you’re feeling physically, emotionally, spiritually and maybe consider a little spring clean of your own?
After yesterdays new beginnings of blogging what we eat, I also wanted to emphasize another part of our lives that needs real attention!
…It really is not just about what goes in your mouth.
…What comes out the other end plays a massive role in your well-being too!
In fact, if what comes out is not what we put in, common sense tells me there’s stuff still in there that hasn’t managed to work it’s way out.
This is all very well if what we eat is being used up for metabolic functions and the rest passed out… but what if it doesn’t all come out? Where does it go?
The answer is… nowhere… it literally ‘sticks’ around, causing all kinds of havoc!
Signs of a congested bowel/colon can include so many symptoms…
Bad skin (this is one of the first biggest signs and you don’t need to look too hard to see for yourself!), IBS, constipation, lower abdominal pain, cramps, tiredness, depression, irritability, feeling of lethargy, feeling of being physically and emotionally ‘stuck’… and so on.
Sound like anyone you know?
Yes, that’s right, MOST of us are pretty blocked up down there.
But, the good news is…
Cleansing the colon is the next easiest and simplest thing you can do to feel well.
In fact, if you still haven’t mastered the eating part, then I would highly recommend adresing this end of things soon, the results will blow your mind and will give you the boost you may need to start anew with what you put in from there on!
I have to say I have had my fair share of colon cleansing experiences.
An extremely challenging one was on my first trip to India. I’d been ill with IBS for 5 months, nothing seemed to help. A wonderful teacher in Rishikesh in the North took me under his wing for a few weeks and one day guided me through a traditional Yogic Salt flush. This involved drinking 16 liters of salt water and performing various stretches to assist elimination (not that you need much assistance once things start happening!). The results were amazing, I was cured overnight!
Again, back in India, while staying at an Ayurvedic clinic for a 5 week Panchakarma treatment I was given an Ayurvedic style enema called ‘Anuvasana Basti’. This is an implant of medicinal herbs and oils but without any prior washing of the bowel. It was a great treatment and  the implant did prove to have it benefits as part of the full treatment (5 weeks). But I wouldn’t advise without having cleansed the colon properly first.
I have also had colonic hydrotherapy, a more ‘western’ approach to cleansing the colon.
In my opinion this is probably the best way to go if you find a great therapist who has a superb filtration system.
This is not easy to find although if you do your research you will find someone who suits you.
So, what to do when you got to clean your colon but you have only got yourself to rely on?
Do it yourself… do an enema!
Enemas are something I discovered about 2 years ago for myself and have never had a bad experience with them.
I think the key to that is trusting yourself and the tools you have to do this on your own.
There is a lot of info out there so please do your research, maybe find someone to teach you first….
I watched this fantastic YouTube the other day with regard to enemas!
I really enjoyed Pumas explanation of why we should be doing this type of cleansing practice much much more.
You wouldn’t leave your trash can in the kitchen without a bin liner for weeks, months, years on end without cleaning it out, would you?
What’s more, we fill our trash cans with meat, dairy, and so many impurites… imagine all that in a warm environment over a long period of time…. mmm, nice?!!!! Smells, pretty bad after a while doesn’t it? And you can’t see the side of the trash can anymore (= no absorbtion in the gut), this leads cloudy mind as our intestines become cloudy and blocked too …

Before you go and jump on the enema band wagon, make sure first you have researched for yourself the safe ways to build up to coffee implants and bigger flushes.
There is a lot of information out there, you just have to be willing to look.
Puma has worked as a certified Colon Hydrotherapist in Tucson, Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center and Eden Hot springs.
I am sure she would be happy to treat you, you just have to get to Sedona Arizona!
But in the meantime, happy spring cleaning folks 🙂
Big Love and Encouragement!
