Since I've been juice feasting, I've noticed that my dream recall is more heightened. Perhaps I've always dreamed in color and so vividly, but most of the time now, when I awake, I'm aware of a grand saga of dreaming that has taken place during my slumber. Lately I have been dreaming about my first true love. My dreams are not at all sexual in nature, but they are very tender, sweet and innocent. It's also interesting that they seem to be set in the current time. In these dreams, he and I are close friends, exchanging dialog and enjoying one another's company. My husband is generally there in the background and his children are there, running and playing in the distance. This remembrance has felt quite healing and there remains a certain peace when I recall these dreams in the light of day.
In the material on the juice feasting website, they discuss the theory that one goes back approximately 120 days for each day of juice feasting. If that is true, it would put me back around the time of my 22nd year.....the very time that I was in this particular love affair. Only tonight, did I put this together and now I find it rather curious and heart warming at the same time. With the issues my daughter has been dealing with, (see yesterday's post), it seems even more meaningful suddenly. I don't have any regrets at this point. I find that I'm feeling a real sense of gratitude for the experiences and people who have helped mold me into who I have become today. It has been good to revisit and to pay my respects to my past over the last 20+ years. But perhaps I should warn you now, as I go back even further, it can only get more interesting from here!
Wednesday's Daily Juice:
1.5 qt. strawberry, blood orange juice, coconut water, spirulina, maca juice
1.5 qt. celery, kale, beet, carrot, onion, garlic, lemon, sea salt
I wasn't able to drink anything until mid afternoon because my emotions were still exaggerated from yesterday's drama. I drank plenty of water and I felt really well into this evening. Things are settling down, so tomorrow I should be back on track with the juice intake.
