I know what you’re thinking. Where am I going with this blog title?
Before I answer that, let me just clear a few things up.
- I think Zombies probably will exist very soon. As such, I need to learn how to use a gun. Or a
- I need a pedicure like you wouldn’t believe. Seriously.
- Jewish weddings are fun.
- Whisky is my new favourite thing. Ever.
- I’m actually going to start a new raw food religion way weirder than scientology. I just need a good name.
- Columbo is the best police detective in the universe. Poirot is the best private detective.
Glad I got all that cleared up.
Ok so brainwashing might be a tiny bit of an over-exaggeration in terms of what I’m talking about…
When I say brainwashing I actually mean positive thinking. Now, I don’t care what anyone says (usually ever), this WILL make a difference to…everything! How you frame stuff, how you think about what is going on in your life, is probably the most important thing in terms of the quality of life you will experience. Big stuff, right? If you can start to take control of the direction of your thoughts, it will change your life. Will. Check out some of these if you need a bit o’ help.
But how does this apply to raw food?
Well, it’s simple.
Choosing to accept and be happy with the quantity of raw food currently in your diet is the opposite of being sad or upset about the lack of raw food you are eating. Now I’m no NASA scientist but even I understand that.
In the first scenario there is happy, in the second there is sad.
You see, you need, need, need to shift to the positive if you’re going to move forward. Nobody wants to retrograde, right? We leave that to Mercury. Fucking planet.
I’m inviting fucking insisting you focus on what it is that you are eating that is AMAZING and completely ignore whatever it is you’re eating that is less than healthy. Don’t even give that shit your mental energy. Show it the hand. Or whatever.
Focus on the positives. POSITIVES!
This is how this works:
Feel good = make better choices = feel good = make even better choices = feel great = ascend to the next dimesion
Feel bad = make not so good choices = feel bad = make not so good choices = feel shit = want to become a smack junkie
Holding the positive vision in your mind of the good stuff you’re eating changes your mindset, there is peace there. Clarity. Plus it also starts a ball rolling that gathers momentum. Momentum is a great word.
Thinking and playing over in your mind all the less than good stuff you’re eating creates anxiety. We don’t make great decisions when we’re anxious. We can’t see clearly. We retrograde.
From a practical point of view, if you’re struggling to shift your mindset, keep a different type of food diary for a couple of weeks. Write down the POSITIVES of what you’ve eaten that day. If you haven’t eaten anything particularly healthy for what seems like an ice-age, focus on the fact that you are aware, consciously aware of that. Awareness is a good thing. Awareness opens the door to a new future. Wow, did I just type that?
Congratulate yourself on being awesome. No matter what you fucking eat. It’s all bloody perfect. Yes, I am zen.
