One aspect of the retreat I’ve just been on is that you eat and drink at certain times and are only allowed to consume what is given to you. It is not permitted to ask for anything, and you basically get what you’re given. Now this is not a bad thing because the food is good (well the one meal every 48 hours that you get!), and the whole point to this practice is to go without, so that you go deeper within.
The ONLY food that crossed my mind during the whole retreat, and this happened on the very last day, was an orange. A big fat juicy sweet orange. And I realised at that exact moment that when I was out of retreat and able to choose the food I ate once more, I was going to be much more mindful of the food that I ate. In years previous I would have a takeaway on return as a ‘treat’ or ‘cheat’, and really look forward to it, but so much has changed and now only really wholesome fresh live food is to be in my life. Commitment made ☺️
I wrote the above on the last evening of my retreat, while I was still there
Manifestation is my middle name (I should change it on deed poll!)
This is what I then wrote once I was home….
The train back from Scotland was an ordeal, the train an hour late, and then another 40 minute delay from a power failure at the next stop. Anyway whilst in the waiting room at Carlisle, a lady heard me say to Dom on the phone that I couldn’t find any fruit at the station and guess what she gave me?
A FRIGGING ORANGE 😂
Honestly you couldn’t make this up if you tried
Energy attracts like energy
Whatever vibration you are in
You are inviting more of the same to you
Be careful what you wish for!
As it is already on it’s way to you
And the few weeks I have been home now
I cannot stop eating oranges
My new favourite food!
Member Quote Of The Day.
In this section you will read something that has been said by one of the Quantum Sobriety Online Programme members over on the very lively private forum:
“I’m now 10 days alcohol free and I’ve been feeling better each day. I’ve had a few triggers but nothing I’ve not been able to deal with so far. Yesterday I had a breakthrough in my meditation and started crying a little bit, not floods of tears but tears all the same. Seems like things are starting to release.
Sending lots of love to you all ❤️“
