Starting out on the Consciousness Cleanse, I was excited. While cleaning out my garage, I'd found a blank, leatherbound journal which I took to be a good omen. The first day, I followed the cleanse instructions, carefully cutting out pictures of my dreams and goals and double-side-taping them into the journal. But, on the second and third days I kept stumbling over two things: 1) the constant references to cleansing your soul and letting God come in; and 2) a focus on consciousnesses with lots more anger and feelings of hurt than I have. I'm not really upset at anybody in my past.......I wanted to build on my mostly solid foundation and overcome some of my weaknesses. The 21-Day Cleanse wants to help people who are really damaged, it seems to me. I'll probably go back and re-attempt the cleanse again (I do have that lovely journal, after all!) but I did find all the talk about God and about toxicity to be off-putting.
