I feel what you are speaking of, the judgments of others, the judgment of self, these issues were one of the main components in my experience. My choice was to focus on saying YES to ME and people for the most part were respectful. My pat answer to any negative feeling comment was, "I am comfortable with my choice".
There was a sign I made for the occasion when this came up..."MAKE YOUR
SELF COMFORTABLE". I hung it on my wall to remind me and others in my space!
I felt it was no one's choice but mine to decide what was better for my body. I desired to develop my "inner ear", and to turn the volume down on the "outer ear".
What's weird?? Water is weird(&wonderful), having an ability to shift structure on some conscious *weird* level. All of us need it to live. Well perhaps less so the breatharians, but hey, dont their bodies *produce* some kind of nectar? All us other humans, we drink water, we bathe in it, we carry it in our bodies as a major component. Ding, ding... The Master Cleanse
is WATER. We add three other ingredients, each specifically designed to make this a complete cleanse. The lemon, maple syrup and the cayenne each bring to the cleanse their special properties. We, just grab a bottle and go but in essence we have performed an act of self healing, "alchemy in the kitchen" as it were, and herbally prepared a remedy, a healing drink for our body.
Likewise, our thoughts and behavior have impacts on the cleanse. Thinking thoughts of *release* is similar to the thoughts of release you are thinking when you take a piss or an elimination. Dr. Emoto's work with WATER would convince anyone of the synergy potential between humans and water.
Thinking *release* to toxins does have an effect...sort of like it will work if you believe, or that famous adage, "as a man thingeth". The point being, give yourself the power and intention to heal and like a barometer it turns up the manifestation...not unlike the power of prayer. This cleanse has the potential to put you through hoops mentally and/or physically which you could not pay someone enough to put you through. You put yourself through them and you are a better person for having gone the distance...10 days and beyond.
Anyway, my three minute rant on the subject....ggg
Be happy, be well,
