Good Morning,

Yesterday was a tough day for me. My experience all day long was feeling other peoples resistance to whatever I was sharing. I found myself just wanting to give up, quit, let go... such a mix of feelings. It was not easy just to let myself have my experience. I felt so misunderstood. We went out to dinner, waiting for the holiday traffic to cease before heading back to the farm after a day of meetings in the city and I had some steamed kale and zucchini. While it tasted good, I noticed on the drive home that I felt full, uncomfortable... maybe the physical experience I was having was matching my emotional experience. Anyway, I went to sleep committed to moving through my experience and learning from it.
What I see this morning is that I am going to put more conscious energy into letting go, trusting God (over there), that while I may feel like my attention to creating what I think will be supportive of others is an expression of love for me.. it may not feel like an expression of love to others... so I can let go.
This morning I sat with Sarah, my soon to be daughter in law, and she shared that she always feels like "not enough" in my presence. I certainly am not committed to that either. I shared with her about how my love can express and she shared that she is committed to letting go of her story... the wedding is less than two weeks away!
So, I am sharing all of this so you can see that the process is on going, that JUICING is a way to support us all in clearing out everything that no longer serves us... and opening up to something new that we perhaps cannot see yet. Open up anyway.
Be gentle with your process, take it easy today, drink lots of water and plenty of juice and ease into food tomorrow while keeping your juice intake high. Sprouts, are a great reentry... chew your solid food well. Your digestive system needs some support as you add solid food.
Love yourself.
Love others.
I love you.
See you next month, please continue to share. You make a difference in MY LIFE.
Love. Terces

Hi Sweet Ones,

Feeling good, stronger... that feels good too. We are starting to prepare for the wedding here in a couple weeks (300 plus people) and I ran around today picking up new sheets for some of the "family" staying on the farm in "camping" style. Also fixed up one of the little yurts we moved recently as well as a small "trailer" we made that looks like a tiny house. Hung some twinkle lights, painted a couple night stands and doors and stood back to look at my work and feel so good! I love accomplishing things!
I love that when I am juicing I am able to accomplish so much more.... crazy.
I also realized that the CD of music from my son's father was actually him giving my what my invitation said my wish was... that everyone would reconnect with someone they loved that they had distanced themselves from... he was actually giving me all I really wanted. Such a healing. I feel so full... full of love.
How about you? Are you caring for yourself, recognizing how others care for you.
I am so grateful to all of you. Just knowing you are out there supports me, and then hearing from you is such a joy.
I love you.

Thanks goodness for healings. Today I drove to Santa Cruz to play with and care for my grandchildren, so my son and his wife could have a little bit of time together on their 6th Anniversary. Well, I ended up stuck in bumper to bumper traffic for HOURS... the healing was I was listening to a CD that I had received in the mail from the father of my youngest son. We haven't really talked in years and for my birthday he put together a CD that had me laughing, crying, remembering, forgetting, feeling so celebrated and seen. Such a sweet healing. So, what I want to say today is DON'T EVER GIVE UP on what you know is possible. LOVE IS ALWAYS VICTORIOUS. Keep your heart open, keep on loving no matter what, it is the way to healing for us all.
Love yourself too, and nourish yourself with love. You are worthy of everything wonderful. Yes you are.
I love you.

Good Morning,

Ok, here we go, over the half way mark. Are you keeping track, waiting for the end of the week, or are you not noticing and simply creating "this is what you are drinking for now?" Curious where you are. For me, today no headaches, yeah! Got a one hour foot massage in the middle of the day when the temperatures were over 100... such a great break and so helpful in detoxing. What are you doing to support your cleanse?
We are starting to prepare for our sons wedding that is taking place on the farm on the 18th of September. I am grateful for the juicing week, as I seem to get so much more done, out of the ordinary farm and cafe chores.
Painted to night stands, picked up a new bed and tomorrow the mattress for the yurt we are fixing up for some guests... I love the ease that seems to flow during the week of JUICING. I notice I don't doubt or question myself as much. What are you noticing? Share so that others can learn and be supported by YOU.
I feel stronger than "usual".
Do you know that you are loved?
Thank you for taking good care of yourself.
Have fun, smile alot.
Love, Terces

Hi There,

I awoke with a headache and thought "oh no" "here I go"... but I didn't hesitate to take an aspirin, so I don't know what your thoughts are, but I am not into suffering especially while I am juicing. Then I drank lots of water, did all the farm chores and kept going. It was a full day. I found myself grateful for so much today and realize that I was reminded by myself to "make time for myself". I am still drinking Vitamineral Green in all my juice. Someone else reminded me about water with lemon and am going to start my day with it tomorrow. I so appreciate all of you who shared, thank you. Keep it up.
I also want to encourage all of you who may find yourself struggling to move, read something inspiring, listen to music you love, go volunteer somewhere, do something nice for yourself or someone else.... these are ways to shift your attention. Even LAUGHING OUT LOUD will add in your cleanse. Don't take yourself or life so seriously.
Have fun.
Love. Terces

I am actually starting this tonight, the end of Day One. It is still really warm out and I can hear crickets, sprinklers, and a few frogs! I had a full and fun day. Started out at DMV because my license expires in a week, on my birthday, and this year I had to renew in person. I actually love going to DMV, because it is such a great opportunity to practice smiling at people, engaging in conversations, when normally I might just sit quietly, and attempting to "lighten" up the environment of a State office. I actually did pretty good, considering that the person who was helping me just didn't seem to want to shift his mood, but that didn't stop me. I am definitely more unstoppable when I am JUICING! I found myself so grateful that I don't work there! Today I put Vitamineral green all my juices. I am experimenting to see if I can really feel the difference using it. It is a powder and easy to blend into anything and really almost doesn't change the taste, certainly not difficult to swallow in juice. For those of you using fruit juice, try adding some, it turns your drink GREEN! Great way to make GREEN JUICE! It is available at Cafe Gratitude and most health focused food stores.
It is hot on the farm right now so I also freeze my drinks and drink them when they are slushy... it certainly makes for a treat in the heat of the day.
Remember to exercise, walk, run, rebounding is great for the lymphatic system, and of course swimming is wonderful on hot days.
I feel good. I feel strong. How about you?
What about you first timers, how was Day One? Share, it is part of the program and will support you in getting more out of the entire week experience.
I love you.
Love, Terces


Good Morning everyone,

Welcome back if you are re joining us, and WELCOME if you are a newcomer! I happen to know that some folks from Cafe Gratitude are joining us for the first time, one of them is my son! So I want to make sure that you set yourselves up to win, and those of you who are pros, share more so the new folks can feel even more supported.
Remember this isn't a "diet", so don't starve yourself. Start from where you are. If you are coming off of a full diet, then take it easy, make it about being on "fluids" and I don't mean coffee and coca cola... I mean juice, smoothies, wheat grass, soup even, do what supports YOU in making a shift. This is designed to give your digestion system a break, to give your mind a mental rest, to EMPOWER YOU. So don't turn it into something you are surviving, turn it into something that supports you! If you start with a full liquid you can always cut back, and do just green drinks, another month or the last few days of this month, whatever works for YOU! You are in charge here. Remember it isn't about "cheating", no one is watching you. You are EMPOWERING YOU.
I noticed this month as I was chewing on food in Vinalhaven, where we were visiting Matthew's parents, that I was looking foward to the upcoming day (today) where I would feel lighter, clearer, less bogged down by FOOD! I don't let myself get hungry and I include plenty of water.
Be good to yourself. You are worth goodness!
I love you,
