MORE THAN "MEATS" THE EYE
It's been a year to the date that I've given up red meat, chicken and turkey. To give you an idea of how difficult this was, let me give you a bit of background on me and my former affinity with meat. I grew up in New Orleans, aka LAND OF THE BEST FOOD AROUND!! Now, some may argue but as a young man nothing was greater than an experience that involved steak or chicken. Every single meal I was indulging in it. This became even more of an issue when I learned the falsified dogma of "YOU NEED MEAT FOR PROTEIN." The reason I tell you all of this is because I want you to know that it is possible if you decide that choice is for you. As fate would have it, I met my wonderful wife who was a highly dedicated vegan. For years she tried to get me to turn away from it. Even showing me slaughterhouse videos. Truthfully, I was unaffected. Although I did care about the animals, I loved meat profusely and it was one of my favorite foods. The great thing is, she never gave up on me. Even after many failed attempts and facts about the health diminishing effect of meat, I was not willing to change.
I felt bad, because I wanted to see what my wife saw, but at the time I just could'nt. If you know me personally, you know that I am a very spiritually inclined person. My relationship with God, my higher power, is the greatest thing in my life, next to my marriage. I've always meditated, but in late January of last year something begin to stir within my spirit. There was an urgency to hear the voice of God every chance I got. It was something I looked forward to day after day. The more I received, the more I desired. Then it happened...February 14, 2014 I was meditating silently when I heard soething that changed my life...It was as if someone was sitting next to me and whispered in my ear. "IF YOU WANT TO CONTINUALLY EVOLVE SPIRITUALLY, GIVE UP MEAT." I was a bit startled at first but this was a time that you knew where this was coming from, and you're aware that it's of the utmost importance. Right away, I decided to try it for a month. I still was'nt sure, but I'm a slave to my inner guidance. This decision would alter my life drastically.
As an avid meat eater, one thing I experienced alot was fatigue. Now this is because I would unload family packs of the stuff, which looking back now was'nt the brightest choice. But everything came in spurts. The first drastic change was the weight loss. I lost 15 ponds in only two weeks. At the time I was pushing 230. My six pack was beginning to fade and my jaw line was taking on a round shape. This was miraculously just what I needed. It was as if my intestines and colon were thanking me by disposing all of the toxicity I had induced upon it for so many years. Next was the energy! I wake up at 3AM every morning and sometimes around 11AM you can run right into a wall. Now that did'nt happen. My wife Sarah was a big help because she began to help by providing me with green juices and smoothies in the morning. This was a double benefit. After watching my face age a bit, because your face is a reflective of the health of your digestive track, I noticed how much younger I started to look. Everything was being cleaned out of my system and my body was no longer under stress anymore.
I had to say one of the greatest benefits had to be when my wife and I became closer because of my decision. I finally was able to see what she saw. I had a deeper vision for how things vibrated on a sub level. My mind became clear, my creativity expanded and my spirit evolved.
I don't ever rush people into making a decision like this unless they feel like it's right for them. What I can say is that I've never been healthier and my energy is endless for the most part. If you do decide to take this route, start in increments. Do a month first, and then build on that. You are more prone to make a successful change when you approach it in an incremental manner. All the best to you!
