So, y'all are saying that junk food might lead to getting psychically attacked?


 :confused:  Where did anyone say that?

All that junk food will get you is poor health if you consume enough of it.  And possibly a host of problems from too many GMO products.

Probably because most people who deal with energy on a regular basis don't abuse their bodies to the point where deep physical cleansing is required. ;)

How do you get by?

Here in The Happy Place, that's pretty much the only method to deal.  Bourbon and benzos.  Enemas won't help the results, though.

No, in fact, I'd think that would make everything worse.  Horribly, horribly worse.

Not sure if you're joking or not ... but between my wards and shields, very little gets through on an energetic level.  Aside from that meditation, stress management, herbal supplements when needed, and a healthy diet.  Not into drinking and don't really like fast food so it isn't that tough.

Do you avoid reading the news? Horrible, horrible energy.
There's a lot of horror to be seen just making a trip to the corner store, if you're paying attention.

And cleansing isn't a "thing for people who abuse their bodies", CD. The people I know who are into it are very health conscious. When you look at environmental toxins and what passes for "food" these days, it's actually a pretty good idea.

One can find food that isn't processed and if you don't want to grow your own there are plenty of organics around if you know where to look.  Unless one is in constant contact with something nasty, or is talking on their cell phone for many hours there should be no need for a cleansing diet or colonics if you have a healthy diet.

A lot of that depends on where you live. In a major city you can find organics, health food, vegetarian options, etc. Smaller towns are often food deserts. You might find a little organic produce if you're very lucky. Rural areas? Forget it.

Don't agree with that thought at all. Rural areas? I LOVE shopping rural areas, because I can always find local, in-season goodies that I can eat. You need to know where to look and who to ask.

Most tiny burgs that I see only have a dollar store and a convenience store/gas station. Good luck.
I suppose you COULD rob somebody's corn field if that's your thing, but you're apt to get GMO's and weird chemicals doing that, too.

Eating healthy (especially organic) is for those that can afford it. And have it easily available.
Try feeding a family of 3 for two weeks on $100 or less.
Plenty of things like pasta, breaded chicken patties, pizza and canned soup is my experience.

Starbright, I do that every week.

Unfortunately, none of us can get away from PCBs and other pervasive manmade environmental toxins, no matter how healthy we eat. :(

Completely, no. Doesn't mean we shouldn't do the best we can about it, and push for stronger protections... like forcing GMOs to be labeled.

Um, NO. I have lived in small towns/villages. You buy local. Most farmers are more than willing to sell local. Most small farmers do NOT use GMOs or weird chemicals, because what they grow is what they eat. I suggest you put in a little more research.

Actually, I was born and raised in a small town, on a pig farm. And the sheer amount of chemical fertilizers and pesticides and GMO that were peddled to my uncles boggled my brain. They bought all sorts of GMO seed to feed to the beef, and didn't care (because what can you do about it?) if it cross-pollinated with other crops meant for people. It's buy the subsidized GMO stuff they can afford and get the crops growing, or hold out and pay all the fines and taxes and fees for the heirloom seed and watch the bugs eat what manages to grow in the tainted soil.

What happens on one farm has a ripple effect on every farm as the pollen is carried on the wind and by bugs and as the plant dies and enters the soil and the water table. What animals feed on affects what's in their fecal matter, which in turn affects what's in the soil and the water. Not to mention what happens to the critters that eat the critters that ate the modified crops.

Unfortunately, playing 'agrarian society' is a losing game for anyone playing seriously. The masses don't want natural, organic, and authentic. They want cheap, easy, and fast.

If you are in an area that you can feed 3 people, healthily, for 50 dollars a week then you are lucky.

Apparently, different areas, different attitudes, different success rates.

Just a bit of a request, let's spend a little time editing the quotes please. They're starting to get ridiculously long in some places.

Usually I only bother quoting the person's Most recent post.

Given that 'organic' is just a word anymore, and not any sort of guarantee, I suppose it doesn't really matter. A lot of farms around here are being surrounded by sub-division housing as the farmers are forced to sell off parcels of land one bit at a time. Those sub-divisions have people or lawn care services using all sorts of chemicals and pesticides on their lawns. Not to mention all the other unhappy side-effects. Increased carbon from traffic, litter spoiling the soil in patches, increased harborage for pests like roaches and rats. It's sad to watch.

You should try some herbal tea.
