Ten Day Fast



Drinking smoothies, juices, broths, teas, and waters for 10 days is going to be fun. So far, I am really positive and my body is feeling good, so we shall see what it feels like tomorrow. :-p

I've been trying to answer why I felt called to do this fast and there is not one definite answer. I want to try something I've never really attempted to try before because its fun and sparks my inner-warrioress. The word Clarity came to mind, so I am wondering how this word will weave through this fast. I have also been pretty unhealthy as of late and not taking care of my body as I should, so I hope this fast will be a reset button.

But most of all I want to prove to myself I can follow through with this. Show up for myself and the others in the group. I tend to start something but then move one fairly quickly, or lose the passion.

It feels like since the day I left home, it has been one transition after the other. I adjusted to a new place, changed majors multiple times, moved in with my love, and now I am ready to end this cycle. These next two weeks will also be concluding my graduate studies. I am leaving early. I am letting this go. I love museums and will keep visiting them, but I realize this path is no longer for me. I am ready to close the door of my college/school days and let this chapter rest. When I was growing up, my goal was to get out of my hometown and go to school. And that is what I did. I have two Bachelor degrees in Theater and Anthropology and I am proud to have earned them. However, I started letting the 'shoulds' and fears of being different hold me back from my true passions, and with student loans looming ahead,  I started to use college as a crutch. I am ready to brave this new journey and fly out of the nest. I'm ready to create my own NEST.

This Fast is exactly what I need right now, and it also ends the last day of my classes. Coincidence? I think not. New Beginnings, anyone?

I also just became a Certified Holistic Life Coach, and my heart is bursting with possibilities. I am so excited for Moondaughter and where she is flowing.

So for now, I sip my tulsi/raspberry leaf tea and observe this flow of energy. 

I may be more grumpy tomorrow.

Love and Blessings,
Marissa Moondaughter

10 Day Fast


So.

For my 10 Day Fast over at the Apothecary Circle I am taking a break from social media. Especially on my phone. When I first wake up, I lay in bed for an hour or so just browsing on my phone. I end up skipping breakfast and running out the door rushing to work. A lot of my time and energy revolve around these apps!

And I end up browsing and spend waayyy too much online. So I need to take this break, however uncomfortable it will make me feel.

What will this look like?
~Erasing my apps on the phone.
~Only checking my email up to 3 times a day.
~Keep my monitor off at work unless I need to use my work files
~Keep a list of alternative things I can do instead.

With this Fast, I am inviting space for more energy, productivity, and nourishing activities. Here is my list of alternatives (in no particular order):
~Yoga
~Read
~Crochet 
~Phone dates/ in-person dates with friends
~Make some herbal goodness!
~Organize our place
~Work on my workshops and other Moondaughter offerings
~More dates with my boy
~Take a shower
~Make my own spa/facial
~Clean make up brushes
~Journal more
~Spend more time out in nature
~Meditate
~Moon magic
~Paint my nails
~Workout

I am still working on readings and will be emailing those this up coming week and I will keep my shop open. I am also scheduling blog posts in advance and scheduling them on my Fb page and twitter. The New Moon giveaway is on February 9th so make sure you enter! This weekend is preparation weekend :)

And of course, I am here for you. Email me whenever if you need to. 

Wish me luck!

Love and Blessings,
Marissa Moondaughter
