Hi Everyone,

I hope that many of you check our BLOG connection even after the week we shared together. I want to update you. Yesterday, after being cleared, I was ready to take actions in alignment with my commitment and in taking on practicing say "NO" this month. I wrote the SF Weekly and the man who wrote the article about Cafe Gratitude/Gracias Madre that misrepresented our company with incorrect information. I even asked him to print a correction. He responded and apologized and said he would reprint the correct information and retract what he has misrepresented! YEAH!
So, once again, get yourself cleared and SPEAK UP for what you are committed to.
Here is a quote that my son's father sent him today.

"follow the path of the unsafe independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost."

What can you stand up for today? I am standing for you and your well being!
I love you.
Ease into eating slowly. Keep juicing and eat mostly plant based foods and lots of GREENS! Be gentle, Be kind, and come back next month.
I will be here with you.
Love, Terces

Day SEVEN April

Hi Everyone,
I am present to the miracle of being able to be clear, in all ways! If you have never been exposed to our process called "clearing" (spelled out in our book Sacred Commerce) I highly recommend it! Today we awoke at 4am to make our 6am meeting in our Oakland Cafe in Whole Foods and I was so upset. I had read a recent article written about our newest restaurant Gracias Madre and in that article they made some comments that were false and yet, presented as facts! My community was SO GREAT, they just held space for me to rant and rave and did NOTHING with it. I am so grateful.
So on this last day of this month's JUICE CLUB I invite you to look for where in your life are you holding on to some view, sharing in a way that perhaps misrepresents your commitments, or making someone wrong for doing that to you or someone you love. Take on getting cleared, shifting your attention to something that calls you into action and inspires you to be your very BEST SELF! That is who you are.
Congratulations on another month of JUICING and I would love to hear from you.
I love you.

Day SIX April

Oops, today I am facing the experience of failure. I started my day at 5am heading up to our Healdsburg location for an All Employee Meeting. Simply changing my schedule and not taking care of myself had me "guilty" of the three greatest set backs to JUICING. #1 I let myself get too tired. #2 I didn't drink enough water #3 I didn't have juice often enough... and down I went. I have been struggling the rest of the day... knowing that I just need to stop, rest, drink... and still there are so many details to care for, so many loose ends. Right now there are challenges that confront me... and still I know that what there is to do is TAKE CARE OF MYSELF. Sharing with you, has me more present to what there is for me to do!
Really, if You/I are/am not caring for ourself/myself then nothing else matters.
So, how are you caring for yourself today?
How do you let yourself down, and how long before you recognize it and pick yourself back up!
Thanks for being there. It is easier to be with my experience of failure, with YOU!
Sweet Dreams. I love you.

Day FIVE April

Good Morning,

WOW, what a big start to my fifth day! Had a really full weekend of serving at the celebration for Aya and now am in recovery mode and returning to normal around here on the farm. What I notice, is I am so happy so many other people are keeping me on track. This morning two of our community members arrived at the farm for their work days and I had forgotten that they too were JUICING, and I experienced myself get enrolled all over again. Just seeing their excitement, their clarity, their skin, their glow in their eyes, reminded me why I have taken this on.
So when you can't see the possibility in yourself, look into the lives of others!
Great reminder.
How can you care for yourself today? How can you relax and enjoy the process you are in?
Someone mentioned in an email that the liver flush drink I shared had them experience nausea. Yes, it will. What that drink does is FLUSH your liver, and your liver is where all the toxins are stored! So beware, if you do the FLUSH in the morning you may notice a strong reaction as the toxins are flushed out and into your system, drink plenty of water and take it easy. Your body will excrete those toxins nad you may feel them on the way out! That is the GOOD NEWS, they are leaving your body!
So, keep on sharing with me and others, you make a difference.
Thank you for cleaning up your life, your health!
Dance today, let your body move.... move through what no longer serves you!
Love, Terces

Happy Easter, Welcome to Day FOUR April

Happy Easter,

No matter what your beliefs might be, Spring is here and with that New Life! Today I am reminded of forgiveness. Who can you forgive today? Who can you love? Perhaps it is yourself. I know that I asked forgiveness this morning around the campfire for all those times I don't trust, for all the times I hold on and attempt to control. I forgive myself. I open up to trusting, to sharing, and to letting go.
THis weekend we are celebrating Aya leaving and stepping into marriage. I celebrate her and her choices. I also trust that it is in the best interest for all. I let go.
There are so many amazing people gathering to say good bye, congratulations, creating community. I am experiencing the joy and beauty of the season.
Thank you for taking on your life for forgiving yourself whenever you didn't perhaps make the choices consistent with taking care of yourself.
Today, start making those choices. Start leading others by living by example. Choose Self Love, choose community, know that you are an important and worthy member of a group of people committed to making a difference.
I love you.

Day THREE April

Good MOrning,
We are so happy that the sun is out and the rain has stopped. Today is a going away celebration on the farm for Aya, our personal assistant of 5 years! While there continues to be a letting go, I can now feel, the opening up to newness and celebration for both her, her finance, and ourselves! Yeah. It takes what it takes. Trust that. I am sharing as on the third day you may be struggling, you may be celebrating the ease of it all, you may be some where in the middle of either one of those. I encourage you to simply, TRUST WHAT IS SO!
Be good to yourself, be patient, be kind, be loving. That is the possibility of cleansing. The letting go of what no longer serves you and the opening up to a new support structure. It may be your thoughts, your words, your actions, your community, your diet... whatever it is OPEN UP TO THAT. What choices could you make today that really SERVE YOU, your health, your well being, you inner most DIVINE BEING.
Choose that!
I love you.

Day TWO April

Happy Easter weekend everyone.

Twenty four years ago I began my recovery from living with food addictions for 20 years!This is a very special time of year for me.
Just yesterday my daughter asked me "How was it that your mom made food so challenging for you?" I shared with her that it wasn't food, although knowing what I know today, we ate a pretty "unhealthy" standard american diet. It was that she merged so many emotional experiences with food. If she made me something special and I didn't eat it all, or tell her how wonderful it was, or even not want it at the time she wanted me to want it, she got her feelings hurt. Then I went into feeling badly and unable to console her. So many ways we see now, how we set ourselves up and our children up and our friends up to develop unhealthy patterns around food and drink. The good news is YOU SEE IT NOW! That is all that matters. This is the time of year for NEW LIFE, for NEW BEGINNINGS and you are now setting yourself up for a long, healthy and happy life and THAT IS WHAT MATTERS MOST. You can still prepare and share special foods, especialy since you now realize special foods can also be healthy foods and even if they aren't it is your presence that matters most. When you are present love can be exchanged, given and received.
So share love today and everyday, with yourself and with everyone else.
I Love you.
Happy Spring, Happy Easter.
Love, Terces

WELCOME to Day ONE April

Good Morning,
Here we go, I am already feeling the "cleansing" happening and it is only a hour or so after my JUICE breakfast. Today I did a flush (grapefruit juice, water, garlic, olive oil and ginger)! Actually, it tastes really great!
So here we are, taking on the quality of our life, through making healthy choices.
I congratulate you for taking on being good to yourself, for loving yourself, for feeding yourself food that nourishes you completely.
Notice how you are feeling, notice the thoughts you have, notice what actions you are taking, celebrate your life in all ways.
Springtime always brings up new life for me. My own recovery started on Easter Sunday 24 years ago, that was such a turning point for me. Make this Springtime a turning point in your life, and go in the direction that most inspires you and calls to you to be your BEST self!
I love you, I am grateful for you, I am so happy we are together once again this month.

Love, Terces
