What up detoxers, I was a bit tired in the video that I am about to share with you, but I really believe it is one of the most important videos I have ever made. I find that one of the most common barriers to entry for detoxification is money. I can’t tell you how many people have said to me ”dude I know you are right about this whole detox thing but I just can’t afford it right now.” The truth is that almost anybody has the ability to invest in their health, if they so choose to prioritize differently. Suppose we are given one car in this lifetime. It is the only car we can use for the rest of our entire life. We cannot buy, borrow, or steal a new car. Throughout the course of our lifetime our objective would be to drive this car as far as it can possibly go. Potentially tens of thousands of miles or even more. We are driving to some foreign destination, we don’t really know exactly how to get there, and most people around us think it’s a race! We all know that it’s not a race, but let’s play along here and pretend that it is. How would you win this race? Do you take your current car that is maxing out at 50mph and has poor gas mileage and just start as soon as possible? The car is burning through oil and making all kinds of funny noises but you are so scared because other people are getting a head-start. You take the advice of everybody around you who says “don’t worry you can just fix anything on the road after it breaks.” Or... Do you take your time and invest a lot of money and time into your car before you start the race? You fix up the carburetor, fix the leaks, get new tires, and tweak the engine so that it can hit 75mph. If this a life-time race, I’d suggest taking the second plan. You’ll go further, faster, and do it more efficiently. Spending money on your health is an investment, not a cost. Anybody can afford anything if they choose their priorities accordingly. When we choose health with the same ferocious intent that we chase money, we end up receiving both. It must be experienced to truly understand it, but the universe will orchestrate our life around the commitment that we make to heal ourselves. God, the universe, or whatever you want to call it, absolutely loves when we commit to healing ourselves. That is, after all, how the planet will heal itself. And then when we feel better we are able to be 100x more productive, screaming by the “competition” anyway. I’ll take the testimonial of a recent client of mine to explain “I believe in it so much that I would literally recommend doing whatever it takes to afford the full program. Now that I know the results, I'd be willing to sell my car, sell my house, rent a shack… whatever it would take to get me to the health I experience every day now. I'm not even exaggerating!” Part of healing is to transcend the money virus. We have these deeply ingrained beliefs that money equals security and safety. The safety one receives with money is nowhere near as powerful as truly feeling safe in your body and soul. Detoxifying dis-ease and digging through repressed emotions will lead you to feel safer than any amount of millions of dollars in the bank could. Have you ever noticed that some of the world’s wealthiest people are also some of the most paranoid? They never feel safe and never feel that they have enough. On the other end of the spectrum, what about people with nothing but the clothes on their back who are beaming with positivity, joy, and groundedness? I’ve seen both of these occurrences time and time again throughout my years of traveling. Do you know that it wasn’t until I was truly dying that I realized the joke that money is? I had to get to such a low place to see the illusion behind the curtains. I was a few days from taking my own life and was constantly in a financial battle with myself. I ruminated to myself: “I shouldn’t buy this meal because I can’t afford it, or I shouldn’t buy that supplement because I don’t have enough money.” Here I was one week away from possibly dying and I was still thinking of money. Does that give you an idea of how deep this runs? Eventually, after weeks of arguing with myself, I thought “What if this is part of my illness?” What if I need to treat money like digits on a computer screen without a care in the world, and only focus on my health? In spirit of those thoughts I went to all of my banks and opened up $20k in credit cards. If you haven’t already, you’ll have to read my whole story to find out exactly what happened, but that was the pivotal moment for me, and I have not looked back since. Now, as I am really starting to feel safe on this planet, I have realized that every $1 we spend on our health earns/saves us at least $4 in the long term. Oh and by the way, we also get more happiness, well-being, and energy. How can we make so much more money in the long term by being healthy?
- We have more energy, clarity and focus which equals more productivity
- We look healthier, and people naturally trust us more and want to be around us
- We make investment and business decisions based on intuition vs. the mind
- We choose more meaningful and creative work
There is no “perfect” time that comes along where the stars align for us to seamlessly make the leap to work on our health. That is a fantasy my friends. The perfect time is now.
